Purchasing your own music is taking fear of the musket way too far.

I still don't see what anyone sees in Hurts Like Heaven though.
It doesn't seem that Pitchfork were that serious about music as I thought then. What with some of the reviews for U2's last 2 albums that I've read, they appeared to be written by snobbish serious-than-thou music critics.

I thought Pitchfork was written by upper class snobs.

Well, personal tastes are personal tastes.
Just like many many people prefer any Britney Spears or Lady Gaga song over any Bowie or any U2 song.

Both albums are special. I'd say the consistency of exceptionality gives KoL an edge over MX, for me.

Bloom, CodeX, Lotus Flower and Give Up The Ghost are some of Radiohead's finest songs.

The jury's still out on Mylo Xyloto, but there are quite a few songs that are more charming than mind-blowing, namely Up With The Birds, Major Minus, Teardrops=Waterfalls, and Don't Let It Break Your Heart. Mind you, Charles Brown, Para-Para-Paradise and UFO into Princess o' China are a handful of Coldplay classics.

After months of festival appearances and one-off concerts, Coldplay will be "unofficially" kicking off the Mylo Xyloto Tour tonight in Glasgow, with a full production. Really want North American dates to be announced.

Coldplay Concert Setlist at S.E.C.C., Glasgow on December 3, 2011 | setlist.fm

Was not expecting Daylight to be in the set (EPIC!), but I think there should be more songs from Mylo Xyloto on there.

"Daylight," huh? Fucking nails. And it's worth mentioning that the current treatment of "God Put a Smile" is unreal good.

Hoping they add a few more songs. That set doesn't excite me much. Cool to see Daylight and What If, one of the better X&Y songs, but there's so much they could add to that! And where the fuck is the Parachutes love?

Completely agree, but it's only the first leg of the tour. They're playing Manchester tonight, so I'm not expecting much change in the set.

Throughout the tour, they're going to be giving the crowd radio-controlled "glowbands". They were simultaneously turned on when the show started.

No Princess of China and so little representation from Para-Para-Parachutes is disappointing. A good time to revive a Don't Panic or Spies.

I love that What if has been revived.

No change in the setlist at the Manchester show. The Coldplay forums/fan sites are outraged. Now they know how we sometimes feel about U2? Correct setlist order below.

Songs I think should be in the set: Don't Let It Break Your Heart, Up With The Birds, Princess of China, Lovers In Japan, Shiver, One I Love, Moses, Amsterdam.
