    More Reviews On Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends

    vivalavida.jpgReviews continue to pile in for Coldplay's new album Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends. Here is one such review:


    Coldplay are a heavily mocked and derided band but do not forget that in 2000 - the year of manufactured pop, they were a breath of fresh air. Come 2002, and the band’s sophomore album had them refine the techniques hinted at with their debut ‘Parachutes’. Some listeners were already noticing a certain drippiness oozing its way into the songs, but all in all, ‘A Rush of Blood to the Head’ felt decent.


    The trouble began in earnest with 2005’s X&Y. Looking back, it was a heavily dull album and Chris Martin’s maudlin lyrics sounded worse than ever. The band stretched a set of conservative songs way too far and the result was a bunch of overproduced and over-baked tracks. It may not have hurt their popularity, but it did give them a reputation for making mind nullifying music.
