This is awesome news.

Like, really awesome.

I didn't even bother listening to X&Y after hearing Fix You and Speed of Sound, but their first two albums are really good, great even.

I will be looking forward to this.

Had no idea X&Y was so maligned, I don't mind it, actually think parts of it are rather good even.

Eno will likely do good with them, but I just hope he doesn't take their desire to be U2 a bit too far and turn them into a clone.

Oh God!

As much as I respect and love Eno's work, I can't see a great premonition about this news...

I can imagine Chris' ego go even further than in the X&Y sessions, and the band emulating again (and even harder) U2's sound.

I really hope that not to happen. I was hoping for a totally different next album. But now, I'm not betting on that.

hopefully eno can desuckify them

it is a bit scary how they're following U2 step for step but, if it produces an album of quality like A Rush then I'm all for it

That's a good point, about the emulating U2's sound issue...hmm...or maybe Eno will be extra-sensitive to that? I don't know enough about Coldplay to know if they have anything going for them *but* trying to emulate U2 lol...

cheers all!

Well, this will be Coldplay's fourth album and Eno first co-produced U2's fourth as well. So that's a similarity right there.

Well, Eno's work is not all the same, he's done tones of different things.
But take U2's example. In a great percentage of U2's music there is "Eno ADN" (I don't know if you understand what I'm to say with this).
If Coldplay (Chris "Sissy" Martin) wanted to be bigger than U2 circa X&Y-sessions/releasement, it's not a big surprise to me thay they choose Eno to work with.

By the TUF era, U2 was still an relatively unknown in some countries, and Brian Eno was a much younger producer and had not made half the work he made 'till today.
Why didn't Coldplay choose a yonger (fresher?) guy to go in the studio with them? Someone who really brought something different and that throw away a little the Coldplay typical sound...
