What are you talking about? There's always a fuss here when it comes to Coldplay.

What will happen in EYKIW when they find out that this album is excellent? They're all gonna freak out that it's the end of U2 or something and pan it.

He probably is basing his opinion on a record U2 made 4 years ago.

Makes as much sense as basing your entire opinion of Coldplay on X&Y.

I guarantee good albums such as Viva la Vida are only going to push U2 higher. And I'm not saying that as a biased, long-time U2 fan. Years ago U2 claimed to be the best/biggest band in the world and they urged others to compete and quit shying away from success. Well, Coldplay is a contender. U2 is effing Muhammad Ali though.

That's really optimistic thinking. I hope you are right. I just have my doubts.

Very true. U2 has never been one to roll over in the face of competition, and now is their chance to really step it up. If Eno brings his A game, we're going to have a classic on our hands.

Thanks. I think its ok. Though I prefer more fast/upbeat/catchy songs Yes I know, very cliche. Is there one like that ? I dont want to admit I liked the ipod commercial song, but yeah..

Ha, not really. Most of us are really digging Viva, but I think you're the only one who's claimed it's one of the best of the decade. U2 will be fine.
