That's a fair review. I probably like it a bit more than you do, but yeah, it isn't a classic or anything, just a surprising return to form.

Fix You has to be one of the worst songs ever by anybody.

And I still think Mercy is great and wish they'd release it.

And yes, I do love Coldplay, but this has to be said.

Do you guys know what Fix You is about? Maybe it just sounds retarded. Maybe there is a deeper meaning?

Actually Zoots, I think the song is about being broken and not being able to put the peices back together. The narrator sees this soul walking home by streetlight and sees the good in them and that there is a person underneath it all. It is actually better than I remember it being.

Btw, does The Escapist (is that the name of the 2nd half of the last track?) remind anybody else of Motion Picture Soundtrack a little?

Actually what The Escapist reminds me of is an instrumental off Bowie's Low or Heroes. YLB do you hear it too?

Nice. Is Coldplaying a good board at all? I haven't visited there ever and don't plan to. How does it compare to the blue crackness?
