I'm sure it has to do with the death of Gwyneth's father

So who's going to predict my reaction? I've listened to it four times now, so I think I can.... make an assessment.

You think it's a glorious, euphonic musical epiphany?

Oh wait, that's Screwy's reaction.



I'm sure you like it fine.

All I said was it spoke to me and it was top ten best of the decade.

Strawberry Swing is going to be one of my favorite Coldplay songs. Easily. The vocals further back in the mix really serves them well.

And Chinese Sleep Chant is as great as I had hoped. Those two are the big highlights for me.

k so Strawberry Swing is my favorite so far. Go figure


I also like Lovers in Japan and La vida loca ( thats all I can think of when I see the title). Cemeteries is good and Lost too.

Livin la vida loca

The title is quite possibly my least favorite thing about this album.

Viva la vida or death and all his friends? So clumsy and long!

Life In Technicolor is the most uplifting thing I have heard since A New Career In A New Town.

The only 2 songs I'm not too keen on are Cemeteries and Lost! I agree with whoever said the acoustic version was better.

That was Headache.

I really like the acoustic version as well, but I also agree with what someone else said (now it's my turn to forget) that the acoustic version is more like the traditional Coldplay sound, so I can see why they didn't use it. I'm glad it at least exists for us, though, cuz it is really good.

I can't find anything really weak on this album, to be honest. Reign Of Love might come the closest, as I don't think it really adds anything.
