I like Violet Hill but it strikes me as a solid mid-weight album track rather than first single material. Even Speed of Sound packed more punch, in that respect.

Indeed, it's quite an extraordinary choice for first single, particularly that 40 second into prior to Chris' vocal.

I can't see it capturing the imaginiation of the "I like Snow Patrol because they were on Grey's Anatomy, but only that one song" brigade. Not an obvious commercial smash....

Here's a radio rip of A Spell A Rebel Yell. Obviously, the quality isn't that great. Once I find a rip of the vinyl, I'll put it up for you guys.

http://www.media fire.com/?g1z1tow1vix

Mods, this is available free and is an exclusive with the new issue of NME. As such, it's not "commercially available material."


Edit: There are two things I notice after listening to it. 1. I like it a lot. 2. It's definitely incomplete. I'll keep you posted when I find a better quality, full length rip. It should be today.

Man, I hope the album is more like this B-side, which is excellent.

I like it. Love it actually, like a cross between Stone Roses, U2 and Tears For Fears...almost psychadelic.

I could see this song being considered an album track, but maybe it's only a b-side because it might be considered to detract from the flow and cohesiveness of VLVODAAHF.....indeed, it is very different from Violet Hill.

A few general thoughts about VLVODAAHF:

1. The 40 second intro to Violet Hill (Track 8). Why? Does it somehow segue from Viva La Vida (Track 7)?

2. What is with three tracks having slashed song titles?
- Lovers In Japan/Reign Of Love
- Yes!/Chinese Sleep Chant
- Death And All His Friends/The Escapist
Are these tracks operating in a similar way to Put It Behind You into Crystal Ball on Keane's Under The Iron Sea, and instrumental sound (The Iron Sea) linking the songs?

3. The lyrics in both Violet Hill and A Spell A Rebel Yell refer to a "soldier" and going somewhere (Home/Violet Hill). Are we seeing a common lyrical theme being that from the point of view of a soldier? Death And All His Friends? Lovers In Japan (WW2?)? Cemetaries Of London? The Escapist? A Revolutionary battle as depicted on the album cover? Non Album songs such as Poppy Fields, Postcards From Far Away, Prospekt's March, leftirghtleftright?

Are Coldplay releasing a concept album?

Good, better off not grabbing for that demo. Snow Patrol were better off in the public mind (maybe not $$$ wise) before that, and CP was more free to be creative prior to AROBTTH's smash success.

"Violet Hill" is okay, but not great. The best part is when they sample Bono's "banks and cathedrals" lyric!

"Rebel Yell" is amazing though...
