Interesting. I thought I stopped enjoying the music when the music started to sound slathered in butter (it's all yellow) and too eager for arenas. And, album by album, I never heard any of the musicians becoming more interesting... just, you know, playing the notes. Other than Chris Martin, I can't name any of the band members, partly because I don't hear anything distinct going on, so they don't get my attention. It still sounds more like product than vision to me.
And hey... to those who enjoy them, by all means, don't let me get in the way. Just stop judging the naysayers for being more concerned about their image than the actual music. I pay for the music I enjoy, no matter what others may think. I still listen to Mannheim Steamroller, for crying out loud. If that doesn't kill my "hipster cred," I don't know what will.
