The members of Coldplay are soft rockers and we love them for it. They saw a lot of commercial, Top 40 success, but their music still felt authentic. That is, until 2009’s Mylo Xyloto. A concept album, Xyloto attempted to merge electronic sounds with pop sensibilities and fell flat. Frontman Chris Martin explained, “We have Justin Bieber and Adele to compete with and they're much younger than us.” Coldplay should’ve let Bieber be Bieber and stayed true to their piano-ballad roots.
