I think Coldplay are a good song writing band and this is one of their best albums. The songs are interesting with some great melodies and interesting twists. The tone of tracks goes from protest , to reflective, to anthemic and back again.
The tracks hold together really well as a single piece of work. With the current trend of downloading single tracks I think people can often miss out on the experience an album in it's entirety can give them.
Favourite Track: Green Eyes
Why Does This Review Exist?
I am working my way through Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of all time list and reviewing each album.
- Each album is listened to only once.
- The album is used as background music while working so how much attention I pay to it will depend on what I am doing at the time.
- I do no research about the album or the artist.
- The review is a one off, one moment opinion that may change with further listening.
