While X+Y was my old favourite cd, the new Coldplay album rocks. From the start of ‘Hurts like Heaven’, through ‘Charlie Brown’ and the excellent ‘Every Teardrop is a Waterfall’ the upbeat rhythms and power anthems are positive and enjoyable.
Unlike previous albums, there is a consistency of quality in each track, even the slower songs, like ’UFO’ and ‘Us against the World’ which are rather poignant.
This is actually their best album, which I’ve been playing repeatedly, usurping X+Y, even the Youtube videos are really good.
Mylo Xyloto is Coldplay at their very best and is available now
