In its second week on the Billboard 200, Coldplay's A Rush Of Blood To The Head remains in the top 10. The U.K. group's second album dropped only two spots to Number Seven on the current listing, with more than 74,000 units sold, according to sources. The album has now tallied more that 215,000 in its first two weeks available in the United States.
A Rush Of Blood To The Head finds Coldplay exploring more sonic ground than on its 2000 debut, Parachutes. Frontman Chris Martin explains the growth to LAUNCH. "I really started to get excited by music that I'd never been excited about before. A lot of things like Oasis and Nirvana and Echo & the Bunnymen, but then things like Johnny Cash. Basically I suddenly realized after our first record that you don't have to just listen to white men of your age to listen to music that can mean something to you. You can listen to everything from the Flaming Lips through to Limp Bizkit."
