I bought it on iTunes as well -- I think it sounds a lot like 'Clocks' - but I love that song, so it's good.

I also have 'Talk' and I can see how things sound similar - but I think it'll be an enjoyable album nonetheless... I like both songs...

Goes to listen to it again...

Chris has said that Clocks was the newest song from the Rush of Blood sessions and that it was better suited for the third album. Meaning the progression from their sound on RoB to X&Y would begin with something like clocks.

Now comes Speed of Sound, a song introducing us to the X&Y era and that many people are comparing to Clocks. This song is not a representation of the entire album. The difference between "In My Place" and "Clocks" is the kind of difference we can expect from one song to the next on X&Y.

Basically what I'm getting at is if anyone thinks this is "just what you'd expect from Coldplay", go pick up X&Y in June and get blown away.
Good point! (I was expecting a great album anyway - I love all of their albums....)

If Talk hadn't gone around, I'm sure Speed of Sound would have made a bigger impression.

The song is very good, but intro is too similar to Clocks riff

Here's a snippet from Billboard about the song "Talk" from the album (in case anyone wants to know):

"One surprise is "Talk," an early version of which was leaked online earlier this year. The band has since completely revamped the song structure, adding different lyrics and ratcheting up the guitar levels. The cut retains the melody from Kraftwerk's "Computer Love," with the main riff played on guitar as opposed to the synthesizers that marked the original."

I absolutely love this song. The intro does sound similar to Clocks, but the songs takes a totally different direction. The chorus is just great.
I also feel it's much stronger than 'Talk' (which I like very much).

Amazing song!

I've heard it on the radio while driving to work today. It starts off fantastic with a "Clocks" feel to it, but the chorus is totally unremarkable IMO.

here is a snippet of the MTV review of the album and new single:
[q]The first single, "Speed of Sound," follows, and it's about the strangest track the band could've selected to serve as its grand return to the spotlight. Martin's voice is cocooned by the pulses of an electric piano and synth chords that give way to a driving piano line and circling guitars, making the whole thing sound strangely like a minor version of "Clocks."[/q]
