I’ve been waiting with bated breath for Coldplay’s new album. The bizarrely titled album, Mylo Xyloto, provides a slightly new direction for the band. Some songs have lost that familiar Coldplay sound, but it’s nice to see a successful band take its music to a new place. Lose yourself in Paradise or Charlie Brown…*We’ll be back next week with our weekly book review
“Martin says Mylo Xyloto was inspired by 1970s New York graffiti and the Nazi-resistance movement known as the White Rose – it’s probably no coincidence both were about young people embracing art in times of turmoil. Here, Coldplay rage in their own lovably goofy way. On the rave-tinged “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall,” Martin imagines a revolution powered by dancing kids. “Hurts Like Heaven” might be the first Coldplay tune to which you can bust something resembling a move.” [Josh Eells, Rolling Stone]
