I'm just curious to see what the new sound will be like. An interview not too long after X&Y had Martin saying that the band knew it was time to move past the falsetto & piano routine. Since that's pretty much their shtick, it's a little exciting to guess at what they'll be doing this time around. For a band with only three albums, you can't deny that there's at least potential for some really great stuff ahead.

I really hope they go in this direction. I think it's time for something new. And they definitely do have the potential for it. I am so looking forward to it..

Here are the b-sides that are worth listening to:

Sleeping Sun
Gravity
How You See the World, Version 2
Things I Don't Understand

Mix that with the songs that aren't that bad:

White Shadows
Low
Square One
Talk
Speed of Sound

and the best track:

'Til Kingdom Come

and you have a really solid album

And thank you for complimenting my AV, I really dig it too

Things I Don't Understand is better than most songs on the album. It should have been there...

Here's my X&Y:

I've tried to make a salvageable album out of Coldplay's disastrous X&Y by taking out horrible songs, leaving in decent/good ones, and adding b-sides:

1. Square One (decent opener)
2. Talk (the best rock song on the album has a riff from another song)
3. White Shadows (good song atleast)
4. Gravity (Yes, this is the same song by Embrace. It was originally written by Chris Martin and it actually kind of good)
5. How You See the World (Ver. 2) (This charity single is better than most songs on the album. At least they gave the Third World non-crappy songs)
6. Low (Hey! We can sound like mid-'80s U2, too!)
7. Sleeping Sun (great b-side that tries to recapture the magic of Parachutes while still being a little progressive. Well, progressive to Coldplay.)
8. Speed of Sound (Clocks, Pt. 2 but still enjoyable.)
9. Things I Don't Understand (another b-side that's better than most of the album.)
10. Swallowed in the Sea (Chris Martin proves he knows how to rhyme in this sort of decent filler track. Album's worst lyric nominee "I could write a song 1000 miles long." Please don't.)
11. A Message (A decent, bland love song to his decent, bland wife Gwenyth Paltrow. The music picks up, but I can't buy into it because of the shittiness of Martin.
12. 'Til Kingdom Come (the only great song on the album, and it was a bonus track)

A Message really isn't that bad, the 2nd half of the song is very good.

Swallowed in the Sea is filler. I like it better than the title track, which is really is musical euthanasia is U2istheBest put it

I'm not that big of a fan of Pyramid Song anyway. Maybe it's because I had such a low-res version of it.

Agreed! The final version compared to the demo sounds... bad.

I doubt that at this time, Coldplay could ever make such a complex song (for a band like these) like "Pyramid song" This song blows many of Coldplay's tunes...

Twisted Logic blows. I don't like anything about that song, it's the definition of "meh"

Here's the X&Y I've been running with for quite some time:

1. Square One
2. How You See The World No.2
3. Talk (Original Demo Version)
4. Til Kingdom Come
5. White Shadows
6. A Message
7. Sleeping Sun
8. Pour Me
9. Proof
10. Low
11. Twisted Logic
12. Gravity

Since the title track is missing, we'll just call it "Sleeping Sun."


Other than that, I don't have anything to add to this thread that I haven't said in previous LP4 threads. This is the pivotal album of their career and the one that will have them fade into nothing if it is more by-the-numbers Coldplay. Hopefully these early rumblings of experimentation and a new, edgier sound are true. I'm officially hyped for the album.
