No, no, it's actually going into DI5. I'll send it over.

Hi folks.

Four hours can't be enough sleep, but I inadvertently woke up and it seems to be too light for my body to be willing to go back to sleep.

on both counts.

What's Viva La Vida like? All I've gotten out of the Coldplay thread is that it's probably influenced by U2 and The Arcade Fire and Chris Martin sings about running over Rob's dog repeatedly.

Yes, that line about Rob's dog was indeed uplifting, but really, I don't get the comparisons to TUF at ALL. It was fairly well done, could definitely hear Eno on a few tracks (see: 1st track), and though elmel disagrees, I think the second half was much better then the first, but the first had it's moments. I've never heard a full Coldplay album to compare it to, but I will say ti doesn't sound much like Clocks or Speed of Sound so, nice new direction it feels like.

Oh, Speed Of Sound pissed me off because it just sounded like them rehashing the basic premise of Clocks, which in turn sounded like them trying to rehash UF.

I'm not sure I'll bother listening to it since I don't like Chris Martin as a vocalist. But does it at least avoid having anything as utterly terrible as Fix You?

1,000 times yes.

That still doesn't mean he's brilliant on it though.

Heh. Maybe I might listen once out of curiosity then.

Also, is this little corner of the Internet a bit unique in its hatred of Fix You or something? Because to me, it's the definition of just about everything wrong with music and a reference point for future crap. But I've recently encountered some references to Fix You as a good song, apparently with no trace of irony or sarcasm. And that worries me. What the fuck, people.

Honest to God, there have only been two times where I thought Coldplay was ripping off U2 . The first was a b-side (and I'm ashamed to admit I started a thread in EYKIW about it) the second was Speed of Sound, but that has a lot to do with the fact that the first time I heard it on hte radio, I swore up and down that it was a U2 song I didn't know, and only weeks later did i find out it was Coldplay

I do think it's actually quite a popular song, but I've only ever heard the chorus
