I really like the intro with the dissonant strings and guitars coming in, but goddamn, Chris Martin's voice at the beginning is terrible. His voice improves as the song progresses, but then like others have said, the song never really takes off like you'd hope it would.

It's good, but not great. Definitely better than half of the songs on X&Y already though.

My first impression of Violet Hill...

Wasn't great.

Those are literally the words that came out.

I've been a big Coldplay fan since Parachutes and am looking forward to the new album a ton...

First impression of Violet Hill...meh....maybe it'll grow on me. Good, but not great. As the first single choice, I don't know if it's going to create a lot of hype for the new album either...It sort of reminds me of what Steve Lilywhite said about SYCMIOYO on the bonus DVD that came with HTDAAB...something along the lines of "good song, but it doesn't have a chorus." With Violet Hill, the "if you love me..." line should be the "payoff" for what a chorus is...it just doesn't take off.

That said, I'll wait until I hear it in the context of the album to make up my mind...

Hahaha good call, I was thinking the exact same thing. What other color would snow be? Yellow snow maybe?

I've listened to the song about 4 times throughout today, and I really enjoy it. I think it actually does have a good chance of being a hit. I can also envision what the music video will look like...and trust me it will be a good one.

I'm actually doubting it's hit potential (i.e mainstream "hot" 30 type of hit potential, as opposed to rock/alternative hit potential), it lacks the catchiness to appeal to teenagers I reckon...

I love the beat......there's a lot of intriguing thing happening here musically.

And the lyrics are quality. With X&Y, there seemed to be something rushed or at least lacking in effort with the lyrics.....Violet Hill is splendid though....and I don't think Martin's vocalising from his own experience, he's casting himself in someone else's shoes....
