Yellow number one cant beat it
Yellow is the most beautiful song written in modern day history and this is coming from someone who listens too only Hip-hop music
This album is amazing
I like to cry to this album
A Must-Listen Classic
I miss this genre of Coldplay. Let’s hope their last album reverts back to something like this!
I was in college at The University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and frequented a local record store ( a thing of the past) . A clerk who new my proclivity for what I might like in music recommended this album. I f.....ing loved it . Every track!! Itis still my favorite Coldplay LP . Rush of the Blood to My Head is a close second. Their newer stuff is good but nothing compares to Parachutes !! Great song writing which propelled them on to the worldwide spotlight . How can anyone not love the simplicicity and allure of Sparks !!! Yellow remains an encore standout !! Definitely my favoite amoungst their many standout albums,
One of the best

Definitely one of the best, if not the best, Coldplay album to date.
I’ll never forget when “Yellow” first came out. I saw the video on a Canadian cable station and had to buy their album. Rarely do you find album where you can start with the first song and let the album play. “Parachutes” will always be one of my favorite 3 albums.
Coldplay’s debut album sets the stage for the band they would become.
While perhaps not my favorite album, “Parachutes” has a lot to offer and set Coldplay up to become who they are today.
“Don’t Panic” 8/10
A chilling opening to the album, very short and sweet (well, not sweet, sour, maybe?)
A lot of people like this song, and it’s not that I don’t, it’s just compared to the other songs on the album it’s kind of mediocre. It’s chorus is good, though.
I remember first listening to this album and hearing this song and being like: “Wow! This is amazing!” That sentiment still sits with me today, and this song is still one of my favorites.
Maybe it’s the fact that this song comes right after “Spies,” or maybe I’m just crazy, but this is probably my least favorite song on the album (and yet it’s still better then most music). It’s too slow for me, and seems repetitive sometimes. I’d much rather listen to “Spies” or “Everything’s Not Lost.”
This was the song that made Coldplay well known, and it’s really good. The lyrics are good, the music is good, it sounds like Coldplay. It’s a good song, nothing more, nothing less.
The best thing about this song is the opening, hands down. When I hear that piano I always get excited.
Although short, the titular song is still good, and is a nice segue into “High Speed.”
“High Speed” 6/10
Much like “Yellow,” this song is just a good Coldplay song that I’d be okay listening to for the rest of my life (something I’ll probably do).
“We Never Change” 7/10
While somewhat somber, I find this song’s message to be good, and the music is nice too.
“Everything’s Not Lost” 10/10
The pinnacle of the album, I often feel like “Everything’s Not Lost” is somewhat underappreciated. It’s so good! The message to not give up, along with some killer tunes makes this song nearly perfect.
“Life Is For Living” 7/10
This hidden track on “Everything’s Not Lost” is some more Coldplay magic, much like “Yellow”, “High Speed”, and “We Never Change.”
Yellow is my absolute fav
I have loved Yellow my entire life, even before I knew what Coldplay was. I discovered the album as a whole later, and it is like heaven to my ears! Favorites are Don't Panic, Spies, Yellow, Trouble, and High Speed. Can't beat original Coldplay; DO NOT PASS THIS UP!!!

So Yellow is my favorite Coldplay song. It ventures into slightly abstract concepts and that is what makes it so good. You don’t need a lot sometimes. This album proves that. Yellow is the stand out here for me. It’s one of the few songs that I still have a personal connection to. Everything’s not lost is also pretty good. The album can get a bit experimental. For example, Sparks is kind jazzy. I think it would benefit Coldplay to get in touch with their roots more often. Good first impressions are what this album is all about.
