Viva La Vida vs. Mylo Xyloto


Jdckcom
 Share

Recommended Posts

XYLOTO is better than Viva by a few miles. I liked Viva, some amazing songs came from it (Lovers in Japan, Strawberry Swing, Viva la Vida) but for some reason it didn't feel like coldplay. XYLOTO just embodies everything Coldplay is, a little of the new and old. It's just more complete.

^All of you who say VLV doesn't feel like Coldplay it is because you have this idea in your mind. VLV is Coldplay, and so is MX. I swear that if VLV didn't exist, MX would be the new "it doesn't feel like Coldplay" album. To make MX, VLV was necessary.

 

It would go like this:

 

"almost acoustic"

Parachutes

A Rush...

 

"the same but overproduced"

XY

 

"let's try something new"

VLV

 

"let's bring further away this new sound"

MX

Life In Technicolor vs. Mylo Xyloto

 

Round 2:

Lovers In Japan vs. Hurts Like Heaven

While I love lovers in Japan for me sometimes it just misses the mark a few times and I can't find myself listing to it often.

 

Round 3:

Cemeteries Of London vs. Paradise

Oh common these an't even the same style of song.

 

Round 4:

Viollet Hill vs. Major Minus

Oh I missed these ones- oh will I'll vote for none.

 

Round 5:

Viva La Vida vs. Charlie Brown

Oh finally one with simular styles, deap down I want to say Charlie Brown but I believe they are good songs so another tie.

 

Round 6:

Strawberry Swing vs. Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall

I don't even remember what Strawberry...oh yes I do. No.

 

Round 7:

Lost! vs. Princess Of China

Lost hands down.

 

Round 8:

42 vs. Up In Flames

Up in Flames will go up in flames its horrible.

Not comparable.

 

Mylo Xyloto is an album that is basically supposed to be like a book.

 

Each song is a chapter....they all come together to tell a story that is the book.

 

Viva la Vida is like a collection of short stories. The songs where related but only in theme, not in story. Good album, but MX is meant to be heard all the way through. I feel that to take one song and compare it to Viva would be like taking one chapter of Lord of the Rings and comparing it to a story in a collection of short stories.

 

My opinion.

 

I haven't even listened to Mylo Xyloto, but I completely agree.

whew.... this thread is pointless.... MX is a story album so the songs are completely supporting one another.. Viva is also a concept album but its songs are not bonded together.

people may ask this: where are the great songs of MX? the answer: the album is just a large song!!! there are no standouts because all of them are brilliant... like what i've said, they support each other to convey the message^^
