I actually liked this. Most of their recent stuff kind of blows to be honest- wayyyy too poppy.

I miss their down to earth aesthetics that they had on Parachutes and Rush of Blood to the Head, so I'm liking this scaled back approach- even if it sounds a lot like Bon Iver.

Yes, this is exactly what I wanted from Coldplay, not MYLO XYLO-BLOW!

i loved that. the bon iver comparisons are definitely valid, but this track is still great. it's interesting to me how diverse chris martin has become vocally since arobtth. way too much falsetto on x&y, tons of low register singing on viva la vida, and a lot of this singing seems to be a progression from one particular line on "up in flames" from mylo xyloto (about 2:54 into this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hx7FN1LHphk). anyway, can't wait for their new album.

agree with wanderlust, this embracing of "new" influences seems to be working wonderful for them. if the rest of the album sounds like this, it might be an unexpected aoty contender

Gets better on every listen. Very Bon Iver-esque, though, which is sort of uncomfortable.

That was a pleasant surprise. I hope the whole record is this hauntingly beautiful, not cheesy stuff like MX.

If this follows Coldplay's "every even numbered album is good" trend, then this should be on par with Viva La Vida or even Rush of Blood to the Head. Just hope they ditch the filler from MX.

wow. Why is this so fucking good. If this is the single, I'm exited for a new album. Although MX
sucked hard. But I be willing to chalk it up as an another transitionary album (after X and Y) if the
new album is like this.
