In comparison to The Beach Boys, Coldplay is very similar in some ways but they are also very different. The Beach Boys are happy and carefree in their music; their music is the kind that you hear in older movies where the setting is somewhere like California. I also noticed while listening to the music that it was really kind of catchy and good change-the-mood-of-someone music. Coldplay’s music, however, is very melancholy, the type of music that most people would listen to when they were having a bad day or something sad was going on in their life. I mostly connected well with the Coldplay album, not just because it’s more of a modern style, but because I wasn’t really into the Beach Boys. It’s something that I wouldn’t listen to in my home because I was raised on different styles of music.
