It lives up to its...shit reputation.
Web forum or not (and I have been visiting them for a very long time myself)... something along those lines there are just as many people who are going to agree with you as there are who are going to disagree with you.

And that's perfectly OK. They can take this opinion up with me and others can join in. That's what we're here to do, I thought

Not by any means saying you shouldn't debate it. Just that it's no fun debating it when it becomes a battle of superiority. It's okay to express it as an opinion.

Hey, sometimes it's fun to play English professor to the man of ostentatious verbosity.

I don't mind discussing it in those more objective terms myself. I guess the trick is to tone it down if you're alienating a specific person; most people don't complain, although it does happen, and then we have this debate here.

I give ATYCLC a lot of shit, and rightfully so, but it's a very easy album to sit through. Nothing really bothers me, and I have to say that this is the most successful of the three albums in terms of what the set out to do. Of course, when you aim low, it's a lot easier to achieve your goal.

I like everything on there more than Sometimes You Can't Play It On Your Own and All Because of Cock, my least favorites on Atomic Serve. And I probably prefer Serve On more than any of the other album's peaks.

But it has no teeth, musically or lyrically, and that's the problem for me.

Finally gave Mylo a spin, and, far from being terrible or embarrassing, I rather liked it. It is an incredibly well-sequenced and coherent record in terms of production and mood, even if the songcraft falls off on tracks 11-14. Teardrop, which I did not care for as a single, works much, much better within the context of the album, and Major Minus and Princess of China are among their best songs, I think. That opinion will likely be unpopular, but the former has some insistent attitude and is wise to veil Martin's lyrics under some adventurous vocal textures; the latter brings many of the best elements from the top-forty scene (I include Rihanna in that category) and merges them with Coldplay's impeccable ear for a hook. Count me impressed.

Simultaneously, comparisons to U2 are also heavily frowned upon.

But everyone's frowning around here anyways, so it's not a big deal if it happens.

So they should be... god forbid we discuss the album on its own merits.

(note: I haven't made a single comparison)
(note: I also don't care when others do)

Mylo Xyloto makes it seem the greatest masterpiece committed to tape.
