RhoDeo 1205 Goldy Rhox 57

Hello, today the 57th post of GoldyRhox, classic pop rock. In the darklight an English band, formed in 1996 by lead vocalist Chris Martin and lead guitarist Jonny Buckland at University College London. After they formed Guy Berryman joined the group as a bassist and they changed their name to Starfish. Will Champion joined as a drummer, backing vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist, completing the line-up. The band renamed themselves in 1998. After the release of 2 Ep's they got picked up by Parlophone. Their first single immediately hit the sweet spot and their 2000 debut album has sold 8 million copies not a bad start and things went crescendo ever since. Their discography consists of five studio albums, five extended plays, twenty-five singles, two live albums, twenty-seven music videos, and one compilation album. As of 2009, they've sold over 50 million records, making them one of the best-selling music artists worldwide.

Most of the albums i 'll post made many millions for the music industry and a lot of what i intend to post still gets repackaged and remastered decades later, squeezing the last drop of profit out of bands that for the most part have ceased to exist long ago, although sometimes they get lured out of the mothballs to do a big bucks gig or tour. Now i'm not as naive to post this kinda music for all to see and have deleted, these will be a black box posts, i'm sorry for those on limited bandwidth but for most of you a gamble will get you a quality rip don't like it, deleting is just 2 clicks...That said i will try to accommodate somewhat and produce some cryptic info on the artist and or album.

Todays mystery debut album was released by the record label Parlophone on 10 July 2000 in the United Kingdom. The album was produced by the band and British record producer Ken Nelson. It was met with positive reviews. Upon release, the album quickly reached number one in the United Kingdom, and has since been certified 7x platinum. In the United States, the album peaked at number 51 on the Billboard 200, and has since been certified 2x platinum. It won the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 2002, and has earned the band various accolades since its release. The album is number 12 on the list of the 20 biggest-selling albums of the 21st century in the United Kingdom, and was the winner of the Best British Album award at the 2001 Brit Awards. As of 2011, it has sold around 8.5 million copies worldwide.

Called one of the most-impressive debut albums ever, the band themselves with hindsight seem somewhat embaressed over their naivity and metromanlyness but then all this was pre 9/11 when the evilmindedness of those in power came before our eyes. The album's cover features a photograph of a globe taken with a disposable Kodak camera. The globe had been purchased from W H Smith for £10; it was featured in the music videos and also accompanied the band on their tours. The album was dedicated to drummer Will Champion's mother, Dr Sara Champion, who died of cancer in 2000
