    Like many, I feel this is a rather under-rated album from Coldplay. It is almost impossible to follow-up the run of classics these guys had with their first three albums, but they tried something a little new with this one, and for the most part, I think they succeeded. I think this is an overall good pressing, but I do understand some of the negative comments about muddiness. I think what those posters really mean is that the mix lacks a little punch and is overall pretty flat without great dynamics. I also feel like Side A is a bit better than Side B in terms of sonics. Still, I really enjoyed this record.

    This pressing is certainly not as bad as I expected it to be. As someone mentioned before, there's some light popping for some reason, but it's never really terribly invasive. The sound is definitely 'warm' - almost too much but it is still an enjoyable listen. If you must have this record, probably go with this pressing.

    I really enjoy this album, but the pressing has a lot of background noise (popping/static).
    The "warmer" sound they decided to go with isn't bad, but isn't to my taste.
    The extra stuff (artwork, lyrics, etc) I felt was lackluster too.

    This is Coldplay's best album in my opinion. As far as the sound quality on this, I A/B tested it against a CD copy and have to disagree with the "muddy" and "shit" verdict. A double album pressing is what this deserves and whilst the mix is very different to the cd, I would say it's warmer and to a certain degree the sound stage isn't as clear, I'm happy with my purchase.
    Anybody know the release/pressing date on this? It states 2008 on the label but clearly a re-issue

    Mine had the Parlophone catalog number on the sleeve but the disc had a Capitol logo. It doesn't sound very good. Very bass heavy and muddy.

    Good album but sounds like shit.
