anyone else watch Coldplay on BBC Live Lounge today? or hear on Radio 1? Played 2/3 new songs and played version of Rihanna's We Found Love, and played Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall song (I personally prefer the album version after hearing it live!!!).

did I miss any other songs?

it was an okay set. I thought couple of the new songs sounded shit thou. Loved how the dinner bell went off when he started singing We Found Love.

I hate when I wake up in the morning with a song playing over and over and over in my head.

I hate it even more when that song is 'Princess of China'.

And also, scumbo, what did you think of it?

"It" being the new glittercore album from Coldplay.
I also like it. Comparable to Parachutes and X&Y on the "only a couple standouts" side of things, but overall it's enjoyable. A 7 seems pretty fair.

It depends on which critics you read. I don't generally care what critics say. I care more about what people I talk to in real life say. So there's that. And I think you're both taking my comment far too seriously.

I don't know who this hussy is; someone posted her on facebook. It's a good cover though. Her voice is maybe a little throaty for my liking, but overall, very nice

Great stuff. I'm really hoping for a tour as well...I wonder if their upcoming European shows is the start of the tour, or at least a tease of what's to come?

Shame... I just watched "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" live.. it's the same as the studio.

I really have a vision with that song. It could be a real rocker. Kick up the bass waaaay up. They closed with it... it's not a closer. Come on now!

That "coulda been a princesssss" line is ridiculously catchy.

I've been thinking more and more about that comma line and the more I continue to think about it...

While superficially it's very corny sounding, the meaning is actually quite nice.

Agreed. I find myself singing that more than any other part of this album. I only wish that part was longer, or at least repeated a second time in the song.

Yep... it's the best hook in that track. She sings it 2x but yes, it's back-to-back, and then the song veers off into the big "whoah oh oh" part.

Apparently this album has opened at #1 in all 35 iTunes stores worldwide. Pretty mega, as expected... rebellion songs for rebellious times.

Well, this album HAS grown on me in the past week. I'm really enjoying some of the songs that I wasn't really into originally, namely Hurts Like Heaven and Up With The Birds. Even Teardrops are the same as Waterfalls is immensely more enjoyable in the context of the album, particularly flowing from Us Against the World and MMIX.

The guitar towards the end of Major Minus is blissful, reminds me of a U2 b-side from the 1980's, which is a tremendous thing.

After not loving Up With the Birds at all, I now think it is superb. I think the song's biggest weakness is that they could have dragged out the second half a little longer just to give it a bit more resonance as an album closer. But I love the vocal melody and the gentle rhythm.

I listened to Mylo once last week after being really excited for it, and wasn't particularly impressed it all. I know that I need to listen to it again and pay more attention, but it's been hard to work up the willpower. However, I've listen to X&Y a good bit, and I still absolutely love that album,

It's funny because upon listening to this album the first time I thought... and down goes Coldplay.

Now... I feel like the only thing that's stopping this from being in the same league as VlVoDaaHF is those stupid transition tracks that are merged with the following track. Honestly... obviously I know what they were going for. I just think that the album should've had more tracks.
