Yeah I've only listened once, a few hours ago and they're still in my head.

Maybe it's just me. The only thing that jumped out at me about the studio take is that it didn't suck ass like Every Teardrop.

The last one's way too Flaming Lips, Christmas On Mars [ah!]/Soft Bulletin/Yoshimi with a bit of John Barry without the brilliant and weird for me, it's good, but their getting into repeating themselves, hooks, vocals etal already on what.. album 5?

Where were U2 on album 5? yeah The Joshua Tree, that's where Cwissy, so stop eating Gwinnie's Ass-paragus burgers mate and rock the flock out...

I really like the two songs on the EP not named Teardrop. That's just a horrid song, but Major Minus is excellent, in my opinion.

Major Minus is IMO just as unremarkable as Teardrop. I think it sounds cooler but it just never takes off.

Love Moving To Mars. Love Major Minus a lot more. And Every Teardrop just sucks IMO. I kind of cringe at that line "I got my records on". It's too poppy for my tastes. I don't know about the album. May go out and get it but it better not have stuff like Every Teardrop on it. Really lost interest in Coldplay after Viva La Vida came out. I didn't like much of that album.

It's slightly entertaining listening to the sad sound of Brian Eno trying to draw some life out of a band with no creative core left...with his wacky acoustic guitar processing and ethnic drum sample library.

Charlie Brown is brilliant. I watched the Glastonbury performance and fell in love with the song. More of this, and not Teardrop = Waterfall please..

Love Charlie Brown, really liked Major Minus. Moving to Mars is meh and for some weird reason reminds me of Tom Petty.

To each their own, I'm sure there are those who would blame him more for this crap than I would anyone in Coldplay. It's not like he has some stellar track record over the last decade or so. He''s responsible for far more questionable work than they are as of late.
