Found the plot

Looks like, with their new album, Coldplay is poised to put to bed all the mocking they have been receiving over the past few years. Somewhat justified mocking I would say (they were trying a little to hard to achieve superstardom and got caught out). But all appears well again... they knew they had to change some things around with their sound and they did. Without going all Radiohead and inaccessible.

The songs from the upcoming "Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends" are surprisingly excellent. Like this one with its propulsive hand-clap beats:
Song :: Cemeteries of London by Coldplay

Hopefully this stuff has some legs (they've fooled me before).

What is Gwyneth Paltrow thinking? Not to mention poor little Apple...

I'm late to the party as usual. I requested and received this CD for xmas and I'm LOVING it. I'm particularly fond of the song "Vida La Vida" right now, but that will evolve over time I'm sure.
