Yeah I was wondering about this too... surely that shit wouldn't fly with Eno.

It'd be a lot easier to judge the potential of these new songs if Chris Martin could actually hold a tune live.

Hurts Like Heaven is similar to 42, that first verse at least. I like the walking rainbow man.

You seen them live Diemen? They're fucking terrific, and Martin is great.

It wasn't. According to Wikipedia, the producers were Markus Dravs (who worked on Viva, as well as Neon Bible and The Suburbs), Dan Green, and Rik Simpson.

Eno does have a writing credit, though.

He wrote them threats of violence after hearing it. Valuable criticism!

I haven't seen them live - I'm just going off the posted clips. And in said clips, he's not exactly bowling me over with his ability to control his voice.

Hurts Like Heaven sounds somewhat unusual for a Coldplay song, and it's appealing because of that. From what I can hear on the crappy quality recording of Princess of China it sounds pretty darn cool as well.

I'mma listen to Major Minus again.

The album would be worth getting just for Major Minus. Excellent song.

I've listened to Charles Brown twice, and enjoy it much more than Teardrop = Waterfall. I'm kinda reluctant to listen to the others though. Temptation is strong, but may wait for the album proper to be unleashed on us.

Album is supposedly titled Mnemonics and Murals.

Coldplay angers fans by telling them to check out ‘Freedom for Palestine’ video - BlogPost - The Washington Post

I think people feel Coldplay songs sound like every other band because Coldplay has been making nebulous, populist, faux inspirational feel good, over-processed diarrhea since their excellent first two records.

The musical style they're going for is really cool, but not a single one of those songs has stuck to my mind. Both Major Minus and Hurts Like Heaven are really cool, but where are the melodies?

I remember reading a review here in Sweden of VLV where they said they felt like Coldplay went in with great musical ambitions but forgot about the songs in the process. I disagreed with them, I think it's their best album with lots of memorable songs, but what they said back then really corresponds well with what I think of this right now. Maybe it'll grow on me, I'll have to listen some more, but the songs feel kinda anonymous to me.
