They have me feeling better. Thanks for posting. Major Minus in particular sounds really good. Almost edgy, even.

Hopefully Teardrop won't be on the album.

Major Minus has some cool moments, but again, none of the songs really stick in my mind.

doesn't that happen to you with most music though? it is very, very rare that I hear a piece of music and it sticks in my head after just one listen, even if I liked it. Destroyer's album is a case in point. it's my AOTY so far, but it took me at least three listens before any of the songs stuck in my mind.

That's very true, but it has not generally been my experience with Coldplay. The songs of theirs that I like clicked with me pretty much from the start, the songs that left me underwhelmed on the first few listens never grew on me that much later. The appeal of their music, to me, has been quite simple and immediate - I don't think they're that good at songs that unfold with repeated listenings.

Didn't mind ETIAW, but now listening to these other new songs like Charlie Brown (absolutely it! ) makes you realise the layers of class that waterfall is lacking!

Either way it's good to have another band I enjoy to follow the setlists of for a while haha

Just listened to Teardrop again, and god damn that intro reminds me of the intro to Underworld's Born Slippy.

Coldplay's sets on VLV were far more static than U2's on this tour.

Yeah they sure were! I guess it's just good to have another 'big' band currently 'doing things' in the public eye, as opposed to studio work!

...I don't see what's not to like about ETIAW. I love it.

This album has potential with some of these new songs. But Every Teardrop is quite underwhelming, pretty much all because of Martin.

Hurts Like Heaven sounds like an Arcade Fire song.

These new tracks sound great, including ETIAW (even if it sounds too similar to Ritmo de la Noche) - the only full Coldplay album(s) that I've liked is Viva La Vida / Prospekt's March, but I think Live 2003 doesn't count. Other than that, I hope the next album is a good one.

Just, please, tell me that "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall" was not produced by Brian Eno...
