Bummer. Hope they announce more dates so you can go see them

Have you seen them before?

I still love that album, too. It's so fun and puts me in a good mood.

That said, I think "Up In Flames", which isn't upbeat or happy by any measure, may well be in my top 5 from Mylo Xyloto. I really, REALLY love that song .
I love that one too. My fav is Paradise from that album. What's yours?

Up In Flames is a great song, quite beautiful. And no, not yet.

I hope so as well. I haven't seen them live before, but it's very unlikely that I'll get to travel to the US this summer, as I did for U2 last year. Still have high hopes that they'll make it down here.

Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall, Paradise, Charlie Brown and Princess of China are my absolute favorites on the album.

Same here. That was the song I latched onto right away, and I still love it.

Darn, that's a shame. Yeah, I hope you get a chance to see them at some point, too .

My list seems to go:

1. Paradise
2. Hurts Like Heaven
3. Charlie Brown
4. Up In Flames

...and then after that it's a four-way tie between "Princess of China", "Us Against the World", "Major Minus", and "Every Teardrop..." for fifth place. Just depends on which song I'm particularly into at the moment.

Yeah, after it got overplayed to death, I really dislike Paradise.

Charlie Brown is by far my favorite song off the album. I also loved Up In Flames. I also surprisingly loved Every Teardrop is a Waterfall live.

Charlie Brown became my favorite the moment I first heard it, and nothing has changed. I never cared much for Paradise, and oddly enough, Every Teardrop has grown on me. I hated that song with a passion when I first heard it. Funny how that works.

Yeah, "Paradise" has gotten a lot of airplay. Ah, well. Still like it.

I wasn't sure about "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" the first time I heard it, either, but it definitely wound up growing on me. It's just so fun to dance to. I think that's one of the things I like most about songs like that one and "Charlie Brown" or "Hurts Like Heaven"-they've got this '80s-ish, pop dance sort of vibe about them that I just love.

Charlie Brown is my favourite, with Every Teardrop is a Waterfall second. As stated by others, it grew on me. Paradise has been overplayed, so I skip it on the album.

The Mylo Xyloto Tour will be in full force again on Tuesday with the first North American leg starting in Edmonton. I personally hope that they add a few songs to the "ridiculously short" setlist they've been playing.

I don't understand the whole "that song is so overplayed" thing, because that would insinuate that people still listen to the radio.

Some people still do, yes. I do sometimes if we're in the car going somewhere, and when I'm in my friend's car she flips around through various radio stations 'cause she doesn't have a CD player or an iPod (or a hookup for an iPod).

I too would be totally fine with a good, lengthy setlist. Very excited for the tour to start. I still have about four months to go before my show, but still...

^Agreed. Plus, my daughter plays it on repeat.

However, it will be great to take her to see them in St. Paul. It will be her first concert.

I have to say, I don't think I'll go see Coldplay this year, unless they really improve the setlists. Not paying $150 again.

Edmonton's Rexall Place getting ready for Coldplay's first show of the first North American leg of the Mylo Xyloto Tour [pic below was taken way earlier]. Show should be starting around now.


The first glimpse. #coldplayeg on Twitpic

HUGE spoiler --> Someone took a pic of the Edmonton setlist, some nice surprises:

There is one song in that setlist I'd consider a surprise. But I'd consider it a great one as it's one of their most underrated tunes.
