For me X & Y was the worst album by them with some fantastic songs thrown about. The songs were great but as a whole it left me with a sour taste. Then Viva La Vida came along and I enjoyed it to death. It wasn't their best, that would be and still is A Rush of Blood to the Head. Ironically I didn't dig Mylo Xyloto that much. It was just........very hard to get into. Felt too mainstream even for Coldplay standards. I didn't get as much emotion out of it.
Personally their debut album is still the shit for me. Coldplay have done many things, all of them rather dynamic, but I would long for that "Coldplay" sound that everyone makes fun of them for. Like, have an album that really speaks to me with a early 00's vibe going on. Bah, I'm too old now it seems. haha
