I hate it even more when that song is 'Princess of China'.

That "coulda been a princesssss" line is ridiculously catchy.

I've been thinking more and more about that comma line and the more I continue to think about it...

While superficially it's very corny sounding, the meaning is actually quite nice.

Agreed. I find myself singing that more than any other part of this album. I only wish that part was longer, or at least repeated a second time in the song.

Yep... it's the best hook in that track. She sings it 2x but yes, it's back-to-back, and then the song veers off into the big "whoah oh oh" part.

Apparently this album has opened at #1 in all 35 iTunes stores worldwide. Pretty mega, as expected... rebellion songs for rebellious times.

Well, this album HAS grown on me in the past week. I'm really enjoying some of the songs that I wasn't really into originally, namely Hurts Like Heaven and Up With The Birds. Even Teardrops are the same as Waterfalls is immensely more enjoyable in the context of the album, particularly flowing from Us Against the World and MMIX.

The guitar towards the end of Major Minus is blissful, reminds me of a U2 b-side from the 1980's, which is a tremendous thing.

After not loving Up With the Birds at all, I now think it is superb. I think the song's biggest weakness is that they could have dragged out the second half a little longer just to give it a bit more resonance as an album closer. But I love the vocal melody and the gentle rhythm.

I listened to Mylo once last week after being really excited for it, and wasn't particularly impressed it all. I know that I need to listen to it again and pay more attention, but it's been hard to work up the willpower. However, I've listen to X&Y a good bit, and I still absolutely love that album,

It's funny because upon listening to this album the first time I thought... and down goes Coldplay.

Now... I feel like the only thing that's stopping this from being in the same league as VlVoDaaHF is those stupid transition tracks that are merged with the following track. Honestly... obviously I know what they were going for. I just think that the album should've had more tracks.

Brooke Fraser - Violet Hill (Live bei Radio Hamburg) - YouTube!
She is a singer/songwriter from New Zealand. She is pretty huge here.
She has a good voice and some nice catchy tunes like Something in the Water.

Funny I think the transitions are a necessity.

The album does feel short, but there are still 11 proper songs.

Maybe time just flies when you're having fun.

They also do a great job at making an album seem much longer than it is.
