"Coldplay are back!"

Chris Martin - Coldplay - UEA

Chris Martin - Coldplay - UEA

Coldplay are Back!

Coldplay are a British band who appear to release endless amounts of chart hits and award winning albums! Formed by Chris Martin in 1996 who provides lead vocals is backed by Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion.

Previous five Albuums

  • Parachutes (2000)
  • A Rush of Blood to the Head (2002)
  • X&Y (2005)
  • Viva la Vida (2008)
  • Mylo Xyloto (2011)
The styles of songs appear to follow a similar path, with deep and meaniningful lyrics and relatively slow tempos. However Mylo Xyloto in my opinion offers this and something more! After having recentley seen Coldplay live at a VERY intimate gig at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, shortly after the release of their latest album, I was incredibly impressed by Chris Martin's stage presence which was amazingly energetic and unique!


The Album - Mylo Xyloto:

In my opinion, every song on this album is a potential chart hit which many in fact are.
With the well known tracks "Paradise" and "Every Teardrop is a waterfall" doing well in the charts and in terms of youtube 'hits', other songs such as Charlie Brown and Princencess of China have also done well. Mylo Xyloto debuted in the album chart at number 1 in October 2011, which after relatively quiet last few years is something of an achievement. You can also tell that Coldplay have put a lot of work, not only into the songs but the album art also. It is bright, colourful and artistic unlike any of their previous albums.


Tracklist

Track 1 Mylo Xyloto
Track 2 Hurts Like Heaven
Track 3 Paradise
Track 4 Charlie Brown
Track 5 Us Against The World
Track 6 MMIX
Track 7 Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall
Track 8 Major Minus
Track 9 UFO
Track 10 Princess of China
Track 11 Up in Flames
Track 12 A Hopeful Transmission
Track 13 Don't Let It Break Your Heart
Track 14 Up With The Birds

As you can see the album contrains 14 tracks with my personal favourites being "Hurts Like Heaven", "Paradise", "Charlie Brown", "Every Teardrop is A Waterfall and "Princess of China". Nevertheless I would argue that there is no such thing as a bad track on this album. It is clear to see that every lyric and every word has been thought out and a story has been developed through the album.

Overall

A Fantastic Album! Meaningful and Energising lyrics, 14 fantastic tracks which along with Chris Martin's wonderful vocal style and eccentricity create an award winning album.
****Check out the Paradise music video, absolutely amazing!****

    A bit more description of the music and explanation of why you like it - rather than just track listings - would make this a better review.
