Although One Republic's chart-blazing Timbaland remix launched the band to MySpace stardom, lead singer and Tulsa, Oklahoma, native Ryan Tedder had been playing in the majors for years, first singing on demos while interning at DreamWorks SKG in Nashville. Tedder's big break came when he won a televised songwriting contest hosted by 'NSYNC singer Lance Bass, and subsequently cultivated a relationship with hot-handed producer Timbaland. Tedder wrote and produced hits for pop stars including Natasha Bedingfield, Ashley Tisdale and Hilary Duff through the early '00s, and eventually formed his own rock project, One Republic, with high school buddy Zach Filkins in 2003. Capitalizing fully on the potential of social networking sites and his deep connections in the music biz, the group dominated MySpace charts, appeared (remixed) on Timbaland's 2007 album Shock Value, got signed and dropped by Columbia, and became the first rock band to ink a deal with Timbaland's Interscope imprint, Mosley -- all before issuing a proper debut. That debut, Dreaming Out Loud, finally appeared in November of 2007.

Runtime: 1 hr 32 minRiding high on the phenomenal success of A Rush of Blood to the Head, Coldplay is in peak form on Coldplay Live 2003. This concert was filmed (on Super-16mm film) and recorded in Sydney's Horden Pavilion on July 21 and 22, 2003, during an exhaustive year-long world tour, and the medium-sized arena provides a fitting stage for the London-based rock quartet, not so grand as to overwhelm the music, but large enough to indicate their large and loyal following, which includes enthusiastic fans of either gender. Especially when played in DTS 5.1 surround, this 90-minute concert is richer, thicker, and (of course) louder than Coldplay's studio recordings, lending a wall-of-sound expansiveness to the band's signature sound, which draws from such diverse influences as Genesis, Pink Floyd, The Verve, U2, and their own unique sonic landscape. "Politik" gets the gig off to a rousing start, and other impressive highlights include "Daylight," "Yellow," the as-yet-unreleased new song "Moses," and the popular hits "In My Place," "Clocks," and "The Scientist." And while the concert visuals are slick and professional, this film--the latter containing a truncated 70-minute version of the same performance--are best appreciated for their pristine audio quality.
