    Former Jam frontman Paul Weller has launched a scathing attack on the music of Coldplay and pop newcomer James Blunt, describing their songs as "fucking bland".

    The songwriter is delighted his children are as passionate about music as Weller was during his teen years, but thinks much of today's music lacks the vigour of music from past decades. Weller, 47, says, "My two eldest kids are just mad for music and it's great to see another generation who are passionate about music, especially after those fallow years of Westlife and reality bullshit. It's good to go out to gigs again.

    "I don't get Coldplay and James Blunt though. They bore the shit out of me. I've met Chris Martin before and I don't want to slag him off because he's a lovely lad, but his music is too fucking bland."

    Yeah, exactly.

    Personally I find Paul Weller's music pretty bland and not particularly memorable.

    I went to see James Blunt last weekend at the Barrowlands in Glasgow and enjoyed it a lot. Great atmosphere. Great guy. And great support band!! 'The Boy Least Likely to'. I was really impressed.

    God that sounded like a review didn't it? 'Great night out for all the family...5 stars all round!'

    Yeah, Paul Weller has some great stuff I think but he shows he lack of understanding when he puts James Bland (I mean Blunt ) and Coldplay together like that. Coldplay aren't like Blunt at all. People who think Coldplay are similar to Blunt are WAY off and don't know what they are talking about.
    There are alot of people who tend to put bands & artists together like that - I guess they aren't listening to the music in the same way I am. Fools.

    HE's a fine one to talk!! His best years were with The Jam - and that was long, long ago!

    Yeah like people with Coldplay and Keane, that really bugs me. Sorry to Keane fans but i cant stand them. They are talented and their songs are very catchy, but i dont like them, all their stuff's a bit 'samey'.

    I know. We get Keane Keane Keane all day long on the radio @ work. Drives me nuts...

    But in no way is Coldplay 'bland'. They have so much variety in their music.

    Most people judge Coldplay soley on what they hear on the radio. I'm bored with Speed of Sound, so I don't blame him for saying that.

    However, many of Coldplay's best songs are unknown by most of the public, so they never hear the true depth and emotion of their music.

    Excuse me. ^_~
