Pickin' On Coldplay

I was recently given a copy of Pickin' On Coldplay: A Bluegrass Tribute and I have to say I am impressed. Usually when I think of tribute albums, less-than-stellar performances by underwhelming artists come to mind. Occasionally though, and it is certainly true in the case of "Pickin' On Coldplay," a tribute album can help a band transcend genres. "Pickin' On Coldplay" features a blazingly fast bluegrass rendition of Coldplay's career-launching hit, "Yellow." "Clocks" is familiar in melody, but pleasantly unfamiliar in the emotions it provokes. Any true Coldplay fan should own "Pickin' On Coldplay," if only to experience some of Coldplay's greatest songs in a brand new way.
