However, having said that I still have to say that the last 2 Coldplay CD's I feel have fallen short of potential greatness. Are they worth buying still; absolutely. Will you have them in your collection for a lifetime; for sure. Will their music stand the test of time; without a doubt.
But here is where I feel Coldplay (or I should say their producers) are falling off track. On some of the songs e.g. 42; the song starts off with such a spellbinding vocal performance by Chris Martin & then over halfway through the song...it is lessoned by throwing in bland rock instrumentation which I think totally diminishes the beautiful beginning of the song.
Please guys if your going to do a rock song....then do a rock song....if your going to do a ballad (& brilliant ones at that) then do the ballad; but don't mix the 2 together!!!
I really think this could have been a really historically memorable (& it still will on a different level) CD on a much higher level had they not woven the 2 styles of music together.
That is what made "Parachutes" & " A Rush of Blood to the Head" so amazingly fantastic CD's. I wish the good old boys from Brit would go back to this way when mixing, producing & colaborrating for their CD's because those 2 CD's I think will go down in history along with Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon or Radiohead's The Bends as being the best rock CD's written.Read more ›
Back in the late 70's and 80's I was a real fan of Supertramp for many of the same reasons. Viva La Vida and Fools Overture have some similarities. It seems to me that perhaps Coldplay is taking up where Supertramp left off and are doing a fine job of it. At first I found that I quickly breezed through the disk, making premature assumptions, and then the more I listened to it, the more I began to like it. It grows on you to the point where I haven't found a group in a long time where I like all the tracks, usually there is one or two and the rest is mediocre. However this is definately not one of them. Everyone has their own tastes and their own reasons for listening to music, but I would recommend Viva La Vida and Coldplay. Without "typecasting" them they truly are the Supertramp of the 21st century.

Life in Technicolor - 4/5; Short but sweet
Cemeteries of London - 4/5
Lost! - 5/5; Catchy
42 - 5/5
Lovers in Japan - 5/5; One of my favorites, awesome lyrics
Yes - 5/5; Also my favorite, features Martin singing looow, middle eastern section
Viva La Vida - 5/5; Amazing of course
Violet Hill - 4/5; Love the guitar solo
Strawberry Swing - 2/5; Okay, could have been left out
Death And All His Friends - 5/5; Great ending to a great album
Disc 2 is also awesome. I don't have time to comment on each song but make sure you buy the Prospekt's March edition! Why some of them were left out of Disc 1 is suprising really.
In summary, buy the album for you and 10 of your friends. It's that good.
Regardless, both CDs are amazing. I especially love the two Life in Technicolor tracks (first tracks on each disc.)
