Viva La Vida vs. Everyday Life

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! So Viva La Vida is and will always be my favorite album by the band and after hearing this record I could not stop thinking how much listening to this new music made me feel reminiscent of the wonder and excitement of the VLV era.

I know there are many diferences between this two records and that many of the songs do not compare well against each other but I wanted to try anyway so I came up with this:

Life In Technicolor vs. Sunrise

Cemeteries Of London vs. Church

Lost! vs. BrokEn

42 vs. Trouble In Town

Lovers In Japan vs. Daddy

Reign Of Love vs. WOTW/POTP

Yes vs. Arabesque

Chinesse Sleep Chant vs. When I Need A Friend

Viva La Vida vs. Orphans

Violet Hill vs. Guns

Strawberry Swing vs. 脠k贸/Cry Cry Cry/Old Friends

Death And All His Friends vs. Champion Of The World

The Escapist vs. Everyday Life

I would like to read what do you guys think.

For me, Viva La Vida will always be my favorite because of what it meant to me at the time but now I have to admit that this new record it's coming surprisingly close.

To me VLV is Coldplay at their best, so we are in the same boat.

But for this comparison, I will easily go with every side of VLV except for Arabesque and Trouble in Town because I find these better than Yes and 42.

I love Yes but Arabesque is phenomenal, I didn't stop listening to it since the release. 42 happened to be my least fav VLV track so I will give it a go.

7:6 (in Viva's favor)-not bad! Some of these were really hard (I'm not really a fan of The Escapist or EL, and on the other hand I felt bad choosing something over Arabesque but Yes is literally one of my favorite Coldplay songs)

Yeah, I definitely prefer Viva. But, in Everyday Life's defense, several of the matchups in which I chose a Viva song were pretty tough decisions to make. There are a lot of really strong tracks on both albums.

Viva 12

EL 1

Sry EL, but Viva is unbeatable in my heart. 42/TIT, LIJ/Daddy, DAAHF/COTW were close match ups though, which confirms that EL is a really good album.

Yes/Arabesque was literally two of the best Coldplay songs clashing, but I'll go with Arabesque.
