And there, my friend....we differ. I do have much love in my heart for Childbirth though. I loved the hip-hop influence on 'Conformity (Truth)'

I love the segue from Other Country Sharing the Hispaniola with Haiti to that track.

(This can go on forever)

But does it compare to 'Un Demain Avec Le Soleil'?

Looking at the track listings I thought I would examine what they might mean. Poppy Fields could be a reference towards WW1 or heroin cultivation. Violet Hill Gardens and street in St John's Wood are only about 250 metres from Abbey Road Studios. Hmmmm.

42 could be another war reference and Leftrightleftrightleft could be soldier marching or the obvious political leanings of one's self. The rest I haven't the foggiest but I was bored and thought I'd have some fun with it.

Actually, Un Demain Avec Le Soleil = A Tomorrow with the Sun.

A Week with Sun = Une Semaine Avec Soleil.


Ok, carry on.

Une Annee Sans Luminere = A Year Without Light, correct?

Wow, major brain fart for me. I'm semi-fluent in French. I do know that when my brain is working.

Meh on most of these names (not that that's any way to judge music, particularly when it comes to Coldplay) but I really dig "Cemeteries of London"

"Leftrightleftrightleft" is a cover of that Zack de la Rocha song, recorded on a ferry from Spain to Morocco.

It's a typo first off. Second I like coldplay. 3rd I only say I don't like Arcade Fire to show how foolish other people are on this board who go trash coldplay. Okay we get it if they don't.

I do have to say that I'm extremely disappointed if the album really will only be around 9 songs. To me, that's unacceptable for a band of Coldplay's caliber. They owe us fans more than 42 minutes. If they release 2 other songs independently, then I won't be as down on the idea, but I really don't see why they wouldn't include them on the album. 11 songs is a much more reasonable number.
In a way, I agree with you here. With their first two LPs clocking in at 11 tracks, they found a really good album construct. X&Y is plagued by some, for lack of a better word, abysmal cuts, but reconstructed with some of the better non-album X&Y songs, it would have made a good 11 track album (although still not up to the excellent standards of Parachutes and Rush).

However, I can't really say whether or not 9 tracks would be a huge problem. Sometimes brevity can be a good thing. My favorite album of 2007, Okkervil River's The Stage Names, clocks in with its nine tracks at about the mid-40's mark. A seemingly stingy tracklist resulted in a terrific album, so I can't say whether or not a similar approach from Coldplay would be a bad thing. Honestly, it could be just what they need.
