Not a review, BUT...

I'd like to say a few words about this new release. Being a huge Coldplay fan anything from the band is awesome. This album, though, is a little less stupendous (yes, I just used that word) than earlier releases. Here's why...

Think A Rush of Blood to the Head meets Sigur Rós meets Travis meets U2. All in all, it's a Coldplay record, just not the most dynamic one to date.

I do love it, though. The sound is different, yet intriguing. With Brian Eno doing many of the soundscapes for it (including the airy "Life in Technicolor"), the album makes one of the most interesting ones of the last few years. Songs like "Yes" and "Violet Hill" are hearty accomplishments, and respectfully such for a band in Coldplay's stature.

Maybe this was a review.

4.5 of 5, aka easily a multi-Grammy Award-winner!
