I love how Chinese Sleep Chant has nothing chinese, sleepy, or chanted about...

and how it should be called Oasis Rock Band, because Coldplay goes Oasis on all our asses

I love that LOST!, 42 and Lovers In japan are all in a row... their best trilogy!!



and I love that the obvious start for the Tour will be LIFE IN TECHNICOLOUR and VIVA LA VIDA




not perfect, but a 8, 8.5 for sure... Coldplay lures me back in, and is a GREAT album, not like X&Y, that had 1 great 1st half

I haven't read through the whole thread, just wanted to say that I really love the new album. 42, Yes and Viva La Vida are my favourite songs on it. I ordered my coply on Amazon today, it's released here on June 13.

Why are you assuming that Coldplay is following U2's discography?

for GOD'S SAKE.. this is no way near or on the level of Unforgettable Fire..

I don't get all the hype. I find it meh at best in what I have heard.. This is no Rush of Blood to the Head that's for sure..


I must be the only one who feels this way...

I don't think he's comparing it to UF - he's just using the sequencing of U2 albums, and how they fared, as an analogy. One that I don't really agree with.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, of course, but so far it seems that the majority of people like this album, and I'm not just talking here. It seems to be getting mostly positive reviews elsewhere as well.

I really really like the new album. But I don't think it's better than Rush Of Blood. Still a very good Coldplay album, better than I expected.

Agreed! It's awesome but not better than Rush. Unless listening to an official copy when it comes out will change that.

Which just might. This is one album that deserves to be listened to on a nice system with a CD.

guess i need to listen to it a few more times. Hopefully it will grow on me. Usually tho, first or second listen sums it up for me on whether I dig it or not.. Time will tell..

jeez, it really feels weird to be the only one here who feels this way.

guess I should stay out of this thread until I have heard it a few more times.

<--- that was me

Surprising as it might sound gang, the song which has grown on me the most is...

Violet Hill

I know, I know, for some reason the more I listen to it in context with the rest of the album, the more I enjoy it.
