Conclusion

Pro-social Content

"Politik" argues that everyone on earth has intrinsic value, and appeals for personal space, peace of mind, trust, confidence and strength. After making unspecified mistakes, a man reaches out for help ("In My Place"). Similarly, lead vocalist Chris Martin’s emotional load is lightened by a lady’s tender conversation on "Green Eyes" ("Honey, you are a rock upon which I stand"). He lets love dispel dark clouds ("Daylight"), looks for ways to improve strained relationships ("Clocks," "The Scientist," "A Whisper," "Warning Sign") and asks the Lord for style and grace ("God Put a Smile Upon Your Face"). On the title track, the singer shows empathy when he takes his girl back to the place where she experienced abuse or rejection and pledges to destroy it along with whatever unhappy memories it contains ("I’m gonna buy this place and see it burn/And do back the things it did to you in return").

None

Summary Advisory

From compassionate lyrics to liner notes that stick up for developing countries, Coldplay is a caring band with a degree of conscience. Well worth a listen.
