What Happened Coldplay?

So many of you have now heard the first single off of Coldplay's new record Viva Lavida. The did a great thing by having you submit your email then sending you a free download link. Unfortunately for me no link ever came to any of my three email addresses (configured to accept this mystery email). My take is that Coldplay just doesn't like pasta...or maybe technology doesn't like pasta (that's more like it). So thanks to Audio Therapy I was able to obtain the track, though thoroughly let down by the CP website. That being said, the new track, Violet Hill, is pretty good and pleasantly different than most Coldplay tracks. It's got the standard sound, but with a Phil Collins sheen on it (don't knock Phil Collins). They really changed up their standard rhythms on this and went for a new direction with much success in my opinion. Check it for yourself.

that song was so horrible it made my dog puke up a kitten.

And Phil Collins also stinks.

anonymous: i think you're getting the effect of the song confused with the effect of your ugly face. just kidding. kind of.

the song is alright. i must admit i HATE Coldplay, and i find this song bearable, so that says something good about their new direction. also, the remixes of it are worth a listen, too.

It's not bad. Not great, but not bad. Overproduced. I feel like they've been trying to gloss over shoddy songwriting with too production ever since they shot their creative wad with "Rush of blood to the head." That and its predecessor were full of great songs. Since then it's been a bit downhill...

I'm sorry you didn't get the song, but I did. I like the song, but there's something about it that just doesn't make me go 'wow'. Well, I'm not sure what they're usually like. It was the first time I ever listened to Coldplay, and I haven't borrowed my friends CD's yet.
