Marmite = Pommy version of vegemite.

Pretty awesome in a novel kind of way, not as good as vegemite though.

No, it's more POW.

As usual, I will derail a thread with my comments. I have been listening to Viva La Vida daily since I finally bought it a few weeks ago and I must say that I cannot find anything wrong with the songs, despite my initial concern. I love it and love it far more than I did X&Y. X&Y disappointed me quite a bit. Viva La Vida has brought back my love for Coldplay but nearly as much as it was several years ago. Even though they added a second ATL date, I have decided not to sit out this tour. Parachutes, Rush of Blood and now Viva are my favorite Coldplay releases. I also love majority of their b-sides and would like to hear some b-sides from Viva. I love the pommies.

OK guys, the Coldplay "cartoon" is finished:

http://forum.interference.com/f189/y...ke-188827.html

This is probably as good a time as any to post it, since the thread here is slowing down a bit.

I always wondered where the term pom came from. Thanks

And you're an Aussie! You should know! Don't they teach anything in school anymore?

I know, I know. I just never knew that it was an abbreviation.

And no, not anything worthwhile.

How long has it been since the leak? About two months?

Anyway, two months (or whatever) on from when I first heard it and the tracks that stand out to me at this point are...

Life In Technicolor
Cemeteries of London
Lovers in Japan
Strawberry Swing

Now that the album's been out for a while and it's been able to settle, what are the tracks that stand out for you guys?

Lost! soars above all other songs. Quite remarkable song, amazing.

Full credit to 42, Strawberry Swaing, Chinese Sleep Chant and Violet Hil for being fucking awesome as well.

Violet Hill and 42 have probably grown on me the most, I liked pretty much everything else out of the box...

Viva La Vida (the song that is) is the only one I'm worried about getting sick of currently, it's already being overplayed and it's so darn catchy I'm getting a little tired of it already.

Replace Swing with the title track, and I agree with you 100%.

I agree with inte here, Lost! is my favourite.

Also a fan of: Lovers in Japan, Chinese Sleep Chant, Strawberry Swing, Violet Hill's not bad, and the last half of Death and All His Friends.

Very over Viva La Vida though.
