Rank Coldplay's Albums

So, 1 representing their best and 3 representing their worst, how do you rank Coldplay's albums? Personally, I'd put A RUSH OF BLOOD TO THE HEAD in a strongly leading first place, but X & Y is growing on me ("Fix You" is a masterpiece) and is already leagues better than PARACHUTES, an album with high highs and low lows; the only Coldplay album featuring some tracks I can't get through. So, your thoughts?

ROBTTH currently has 12 votes for first
Parachutes has 6
X & Y has 2

I'm not sure I could make an argument against that order, though I do SLIGHTLY prefer X&Y to Parachutes. ROBBTH is one of my favorite albums of the past decade.

They keep getting worse. More elaborate production can't make up for crappier songs.

Shouldn't The Joshua Tree be on this list?

X&Y is a bit underwhelming. Rush of Blood was their masterpiece and Parachutes was their other one.

Parachutes is clearly their best album. Rush... is a decent offering. X&Y is underwhelming indeed.

Too tough to vote. For me music grows on me and then fades. AROBTTH is probably my favourite but because X&Y is newer, i'd rather listen to it. Parachutes is also good but doesn't stand a chance to me.
