OC Weekly Music Editor Albert Ching says:

"What might surprise the Coldplay haters is that, in concert, the band actually kind of rocks. Hits like 'The Scientist' and recent single 'Lost!' have given them a not-entirely-unfair reputation of being rather mellow. While the slow melancholy of those songs is (wisely) retained live, pieces like 'Clocks' and set-closer 'Yellow' (their breakthrough hit and the only song off Parachutes performed Tuesday) are louder and faster, establishing the band as rock stars and not shoegazers."
