Conclusion

Pro-social Content

"Yellow" expresses love for a special lady, convinced that the stars shine just for her. There’s a brighter day coming on "Everything’s Not Lost," which urges listeners not to despair or let problems drag them down. With deep devotion, "Parachutes" states, "In a haze, a stormy haze, I’ll be ‘round/I’ll be loving you always." Several songs find the singer truly sorry for mistakes that have hurt others ("Trouble," "Sparks" and a hidden, untitled track). The need to harness a stressful, fast-paced life is central to "High Speed." A man patiently waits for the woman he loves to return his affection ("Shiver"). "We Never Change" says, "I wanna live life/And never be cruel/And I wanna live life/ And be good to you . . . and have friends all around."

Objectionable Content

Just one line. The singer on "We Never Change" erroneously asserts, "I don’t have a soul to save" (see Matt. 10:28).

Summary Advisory

Hailing from Britain, the four guys in Coldplay combine the earthiness of modern rock with the dreamy, unhurried flavor of classic U2 and more ethereal Beatles tunes like "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "She’s Leaving Home." The band was described by Entertainment Weekly recently as being "at the forefront of a kinder, gentler rock." Indeed. Families can feel confident letting their teens take a musical leap if they’re packing Parachutes.
