! I love X&Y too


Anyway, on first listen, I am loving Violet Hill. I do think it's a departure for them. I like the bluesier staccato sound. I wish the ending would have been stronger like every one here has been saying, but I think this is among the strongest that Chris' vocals have ever been.

Just gave it a quick play, sounds decent enough, hopefully it will sound better when I give it another listen with earphones on later.

Listened to it a few times now. Not bad at all considering it's Chris Martin singing it.

After a few listens, here's some impressions...

The good:

1. This song actually improves as it goes; the solo is great, and I really like the outro.

2. It's strong lyrically.

3. Martin's falsetto is used SPARINGLY! Huzzah!

The bad:

1. The song is too fast. It never has a chance to get into a rhythm and it feels as if it just wants to get out of the way as quickly as possible.

2. This is not a good choice for first single. It won't be a hit or anything.

Overall, it's about a B in my opinion. It's not very impressive at this stage, but I feel that it will likely work well in the context of the album.

Listened to it a few times now. Have to say it is very underwhelming.

I agree with this 100 percent. It's not the jaw-dropping experience I had when I first played "Rush of Blood," but it's growing on me a bit and I can see it being a part of an album, not a single.

Has it been declared the official first single, or is it just a free song they're giving away from the album? I thought they were going to have another one on radio - I might be wrong though.

I'm digging it. It's got some neat theatrics going on thorughout.

The website is being weird...I'll try to see if I can upload it unless another kind soul gets to it first...I'm at work and can't do it now...

Was a long and dark December
From the rooftops i remember
There was snow
White snow

Clearly i remember
From the windows they were watching
While we froze down below

When the future's architectured
By a carnival of idiots on show
You'd better lie low

If you love me
Won't you let me know?

Was a long and dark December
When the banks became cathedrals
And the fog
Became God

Priests clutched onto bibles
Hollowed out to fit their rifles
And the cross was held aloft

Bury me in honor
When i'm dead and hit the ground
A love back home unfolds

If you love me
Won't you let me know?

I don't want to be a soldier
With the captain of some sinking ship
With snow, far below

So if you love me
Why'd you let me go?

I took my love down to violet hill
There we sat in snow
All that time she was silent still

So if you love me
Won't you let me know?

If you love me,
Won't you let me know?

Very good effort lyrically. Surprisingly good, considering the crap that was on X&Y.

The second verse, especially, is utterly brilliant, lyrically, but I was impressed with the song as a whole.
