I couldn't stand the wait... I've been putting off listening to the leaked tracks, but I just couldn't help it... It's so new and refreshing, unexpected but still familiar Coldplay. Maybe I'm just overly enthusiastic because I've been Coldplay deprived for the longest time since their last album.

Is anyone going to see their concert? Madison Square Gardens gets a free show. Unfortunately I'm not in NYC, so I tried to get tickets this morning for my city and they sold in a flash. Now I'm so depressed, and when I'm sad I listen to Coldplay, but now I can't listen to them because it reminds me of how I don't have tickets So, I've convinced myself I will win a radio contest tomorrow

^ So lucky.

The album should be a great surprise. "Viva la Vida" sounds like nothing I would have expected AT ALL, but it was so good that the whole thing should be a decent surprise!

I have to say that I'm a bit disappointed with Viva la vida. They promised us an album with a completely different new sound, but this is just like everything else you hear on the radio these days. Now they just have this bit harder guitar sound. If it wasn't a Coldplay album it wouldn't sell half as much as it does. It's a good album and everything, but I just expected so much more. It's an improvement from X&Y though in my opinion.

I liked X&Y better, "Fix You" and "Swallowed in the Sea" are miles better than anything on the Viva la vida IMO
Was very disappointed with this album really

Aw, you guys are making me nervous Tomorrow's the day though, I'm going to buy the album after I get out of work and I'm excited no matter what kind of reviews I'm hearing!

I bought the CD. I have only listened to the first 4 songs, and I'm quite pleased.

The first things I think of are "tribal" and "monumental."

I 'Cemeteries of London.' Quite gorgeous!!!

Have you checked out the B-sides?

The other "version" of 'Lost!' is 'Lost?'.
It's pretty much the same song but "milder."

Now, opheliarose I don't know if you've ever listened to Dave Matthews Band's Before These Crowded Streets but in the CD, there are songs and within a song, another song starts after that without changing tracks.

Is that what Coldplay has done? I think they did it for "Death and All of His Friends" and "Yes." Am I correct?

So far, the best songs are Lost!, Strawberry Swing, and Life in Technicolor.

I haven't heard the other version of Lost! but I really want to.

There are definitely songs within songs here, or at least that's what it sounds like to me! I mean, it's all the same song but it just changes up a bit, I don't know what they'd call it exactly and I bet interviewers are scared to try and ask Chris

I like your picks, plus I really dig Cemeteries of London, Lovers in Japan / Reign of Love and Death and All His Friends. Yeah, I know that's over half the album right there :p

I still have yet to download more B-sides, like "A Spell a Rebel Yell."

I just downloaded "2000 Miles" (Christmas cover by The Pretenders) and it's quite gorgeous! I love it as much as I love "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.:
