The first two albums were good. But yes, everything after that sucks like really badly
A Rush of Blood to the Head wasn't bad, there's a few tracks on there that are very solid. X&Y had potential, but they went way too heavy on the Kraftwerk influence and the writing wasnt anything special. As a pop album, it was fine.
Everything else I never gave two shits about. I heard a few tracks off the last album and the direction they're going in is so far away from their roots that it doesn't even sound like the same band. Reminds me of Muse.
I did like Anton Corbijn's Enjoy the Silence nod on the Violet Hill video, that was kinda cool.
