i cant listen to this right now, can someone tell me if it's any better than Every Teardrop is a Waterfall? cause I didn't like that song at all. Viva la Vida is one of my favourite albums but the combination of the new album's dreadful title/artwork and the extended play they released leads me to believe that this will be one of my all-time biggest disappointments

You guys are exaggerating. This isn't nearly as bad I expected. This is actually pretty good and definitely better than
"Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall".

However, it could just be the fact that I'm on vicodin...

I seriously wept like a little girl when they played that. Also during Death And All His Friends. God what a magical night. they did a cover of Billie Jean (cause it was right after MJ died) and Pokerface (cause Lady Gaga was playing the other stage at the same time and Chris Martin felt bad for people who had to make a tough choice haha).

radiohead isn't pop by any stretch of the imagination. coldplay i suppose i would consider pop but they aren't strictly a "pop" band I'd call them alt-rock, or something.

actually yeah i guess they're pop-rock so yeah pop works, carry on.

Knott I don't think Coldplay would be considered pop any more than radiohead would.

Song wasn't that great.

"Fix You" makes me hold this band to a higher standard.

They're definitely continuing our their poppier path, but musically I'd say this is better than "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall". Equally as catchy, but more repetitive.

I really dig this. I'm not even going to TOUCH the nine mile battle-zone of insults and putdowns and hipsters that you have to wade into anytime you dare praise a Coldplay album here. I love this band, I have since I first heard Yellow on VH1 about ten years ago (when they still actually played music videos), and I loved them as they grew and evolved. This sounds like the natural progression from where they were going before. Kind of a bit of Paul Simon worldbeat feeling in the way Chris Martin sings the song towards the bridge and finish. The whole thing was just flat out nice and fun to hear. I like this, and I hope this is a sign that their next album is going to be another moderately spectacular album of the same high standard that their previous albums have been, because I'm all for it.

And cue the Coldplay haters to tell me how I'm wrong and I suck and Coldplay sucks and what REALLY sucks is being wrong and sucking and liking Coldplay all at the same time, right? Right? Yeah, I don't know what I'm talking about anymore either.
