Two concentric indented circles on labels (to differentiate from Coldplay - Parachutes). Check the runout inscriptions to differentiate this release from Coldplay - Parachutes.

Parachutes is ultimately a promising debut for Coldplay, if by "promising," I mean, "promising them a windfall of cash and international popularity. If nothing else, it's harmless and pretty. Unfortunately, it's nothing else.

It’s a compulsively listenable record, the kind of album you don’t think much of until the realization hits that you’ve listened to the whole thing straight through everyday for a week solid. I don’t know who culled the singles from this album but they nailed it. The four singles are melodic genius, each sound like watching a warm sunset defy time and hang in the sky at just the right point, bathing the earth in sepia tone. The beguiling opener, Don’t Panic, sails around the globe in wide-eyed fascination with the people and places below.

Parachutes is a beautifully crafted record with patently dark overtones, and it's a solid introduction to a talented band.

Parachutes is a soft, beautiful album, with highlights including the wonderful "Spies", "Shiver," "Sparks" and "Everything's Not Lost." The OK Computer influence is worn on the album's sleeve but it's not overdone and it's certainly not a ripoff. Though I award Parachutes a 9/10, it does in fact lag behind the following three albums - the wonderful baroque experimentation of Viva la Vida, the confident and defining A Rush of Blood to the Head, and the almost faultless X&Y.

It is certainly easier to assess the talent, longevity, dynamic, and impact of any band in retrospect but this album is one example of those with open ears realizing something exciting was about to happen. This is quite simply one of the best albums released in the US in 2000 and for a debut is astoundingly well crafted. It gave no indication with its shadowy, softer tones and layered textures as to what the band would eventually become as it evolved to the arena rock (and end) phase of their career -- but that only adds to the dream-like beauty of this recording. PARACHUTES is the band at its unassuming, hopeful expectations best and the band's abilities became stronger over the next few years until, in my opinion, plateauing then declining to an uneven set of efforts at career's end -- even so with moments of brilliance and clarity, though unfortunately without the consistency and quality of their first three releases.Highlights: honestly, every track has a siren appeal, especially upon repeated listening, but the subdued simplicity of "Don't Panic" and the heart-penetrating angst of "Trouble" are indicators of the band's potential working at its most cohesive. The 12-track Japanese limited edition (featuring the bonus tracks "Careful Where You Stand" and "For You") is well worth purchasing.Highly Recommended

Coldplay is one of those bands that always rushes by me. They are hugely popular, selling millions of records as of recent and going on huge tours across the world. It is clear they have a huge following, but that following was different back in 2000. Parachutes was the group's debut album and it didn't feature electro beat tracks like some of the newer albums they did. This was more soft alternative music that immediately grabbed people's attention. Of course, I may not be a part of this 'Old' Following as I first heard Coldplay on songs like 'Clocks' and 'Viva La Vida' and 'Paradise' back on FM Radio in late 2000's and early 2010's. But it is a noble effort for the most part. They attempt lots of Radiohead like tracks such as 'Spies', 'Shiver' and the hit the put them on the map 'Yellow' which is still a generation defining song. I remember listening to Yellow for the first time and how it impacted me emotionally. One of the huge highlights on the album is 'Trouble' a slow melodic song that is rich in content.The album, although has some flowery songs, does tend to be forgettable at places. But something hits you on the 45 second title track that there is lots more to see from this band in other albums. Okay look. I'm not the biggest Coldplay fan. I thought this was a pretty and slow alternative album at the time of Nu Metal and huge Boy Band acts. It was probably refreshing at the time to listen to something other than The Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys or Disturbed and Papa Roach But is it all that memorable? No. But there are some shining moments on the album. So for that, it's not bad. I will delve into Coldplay more as we go through the years, but Parachutes for me, is a humble album that does what it sets out to do. Relax you, and it did relax me.3.5/5

Parachutes is for me, the 2nd best album from Coldplay. Beautiful melodies, fantastic drums, bass, guitar and the chris' voice make a fantastic album with the true coldplay's style.

DEAD-SHOT
Coldplay's first album was released worldwide after 2000 - gaining momentum through 2003, a time when rock and roll was very dull, too processed to be rock, and too gutless to contain a zeitgeist or a moment that youth culture could really grip onto.In effect, Coldlplay is the polite, overproduced, airplay-oriented version of dark, sombre Britpop (like Radiohead) but instead of a compelling frontman, they have a melodic, somewhat shallow everyman for a lead vocalist, and the musicians aren't ever mediocre, but their professionalism became increasingly artificial as the bands career wore on. This early album, is more 'rock' than the later discs, has more swing, more emotion and kinda "says something" musically if not literally - the grinding guitars during the intro to "Yellow" sound real - the rest of the album is slightly faceless melodic songwritercraft which sort of looks backward, but is emotionally "now" in that the singer lacks much real depth. The later aspects of their career include shiny, digital keyboards, midi sequences and dance touches. Like their forefathers Phil Collins and Peter Cetera - men who themselves emerged from a type of prog rock movement, if it could be called such, although their hooks were stronger, and the audio market was obviously somewhat different in their day.
