Best Coldplay song ever, straight from the first listen. For everyone really, a soft piano part near the start then the hardest rocking coldplay have ever done after the middle :D

Who agrees?

I've only listened to it once so far (waiting to get access to my Sennheiser headphones), but from what I remember it was among their best songs ever. It's not nearly as sweeping and epic as the reviews made it seem, but that's not a bad thing at all.

I absolutely loved it.

Not the best, but it's definitely great. I prefer Yes and Strawberry Swing.

I was going to say it's snoozer but then it picked up. mmmmm reminds me of the steadiness of Daylight.

Its amazing, I love the song. I'm not going to pick an album favorite until I've heard the album a few more times though.

i love the beginning part a lot, but not so much the latter bit when guitars come in, because the guitar riff reminds me of "go to sleep" which is my least fav. song on radiohead's Hail to the Thief

not to mention the way chris sings one line sounds exactly like "cuttooth" by radiohead

blehh

everything in this song is perfect, but I REALLY like the last part, after the solo... brilliant!
