Funny. Those two songs (Yes and Violet Hill) are my favourites at the moment. I really like the use of the violin and Martin's vocals in Yes and the pounding rhythm in Violet Hill

When I first heard Violet Hill, I liked it a lot.
But now, in the context of the whole album, I think it's the weakest song.

Okay so I listened to the CD in my car and what a great album! Several favorites here... Cemeteries of London, Lost!, 42, Yes, Viva La Vida, Strawberry Swing... all 5 star songs IMO. Good job, Coldplay! This is easily close to being my favorite Coldplay album although I'm not sure if it beats Rush, probably not. But it does beat Parachutes for me. I still haven't heard all of X&Y and I was kinda tempted to get it yesterday at BB. It was on sale for $7.99 but still I resisted. I already have half the songs.

Btw,
How not to use clapping: We Suck Young Blood
How to use clapping: Lost!

It was just something I thought about last night while listening and figured I'd post cos after years of bashing in this forum, Coldplay deserves all the love they can get now! They've released a cracking™ album and they didn't even wait till Fall to capitalize on Christmas like a certain other band lol.

Btw, now that the album has turned out to be brilliant, I wonder if Laz has eaten these words...

LOST! is my favorite song by Warmstop.

And LOST is my favorite television show.

I am LOST in a dizzying maze of LOSTNess.

And this weekend I somehow got LOST in the king-sized, satin-sheeted bed of a Brazilian supermodel for 40 hours.

Call me the LOST Ness Monster.

I agree. By itself it's an OK song, but compared with everything else on the album it just doesn't fit.

Maybe it's just me, but I swear I hear it a little bit.
I guess nobody hears it, then?

Life in Technicolour is just a great start to this album. Apparently the vocal version is rumoured to be on their next album. Not sure if this is right though. Still hearing the Radiohead High and Dry influence in the solo on Lost which is no bad thing. They could have fleshed the ending bit out on this song a bit more.

I just listened to it, and I did not really hear that, but, I could see how one could, if that makes sense.

All of your opinions on this album are stupid and wrong.

Quick question for people who know me.

Is this album any good? All I've heard or read about it since the news that Eno was producing was a single on the radio the other day. It was pretty weak.

What's the deal with this one.

It is good.
And the single is not indicative of the album (at the very least in sound).

Laz, I don't like it very much, but you are no where near as smart or cultured as I am so you might love it.

I gave it many listens, Lance, and while it clearly does not suck, I cannot truthfully say that I liked it. I genuinely like two songs, and the rest are just meh to me. I'd still check it out, though, if I were you.

You confused Lance with his Dad.
