So I am dfminkle responding to his tweet that it was "painful for him to give that review because Coldplay is one of his favorite bands."
Honestly, I still call it BS, but he claims that if he were to have reviewed the previous albums for pitchfork he would have given these ratings:
Rush of Blood: 8.6
Viva La Vida: 10.0
Prospekt's March: 9.2
Mylo Xyloto: 8.9
.. Strangely generous. Though I wish more people would give parachutes that kind of credit. Bu Mylo 8.9? What in the hell did he see in that album that he didn't see in ghost storie
