Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2008-06-26Coldplay's latest, Brian Eno-produced effort is nothing more or less than expected. It's a nice little album, full of quiet vocals, strong lyrics, and interesting instrumentation and production. They didn't break any new ground here, but they've still put out something above and beyond what many of their pop/rock contemporaries are doing. Of course, you've probably heard the popular radio track, "Violet Hill" and the title track. Both songs seem worthy; but there's other good stuff here as well. The album starts strong with a nice instrumental track, "Life In Technicolor". The second and sixth songs, "Cemeteries of London" and "Yes" are reminiscent of something The Church would do with the lyrics written in first person plural, big backing vocals, and a general dreamy feel.
