Not a review but my track by track thoughts about the album.

Mylo Xyloto/Hurts Like Heaven: Coldplay could have easily played it safe after the success of Viva La Vida. They decide not to. Evident in the opening track, Jonny
takes control with the gorgeous sounding guitar riffs. Over produced? pfft more like tweaks to the song to sound it more beastly and it also helps in providing right falsettos at the end by Chris.

Paradise: The RnB, hip-hop elements are clear (especially with the drumming) but I never understood what's wrong with being versatile. Piano and guitars (although in
minority) comes at required places. This was clearly designed with the context of the album rather than a proper single.

Charlie Brown: This > Clocks. Why? It manages to keep you hooked with an addictive guitar rhythm, marvelous string arrangement and an outro which surprisingly doesn't
seem out of place rather completes this energetic song. The only thing that angers me is that this hasn't been released as a single yet.

Us Against The World: One of the most beautiful songs to come out from them. This hypnotizes in ways more than you can imagine. The lyrics are the most impressive part with Jonny (yes, he is the one in control in majority of the songs) filling all the necessary gaps. The organ in the later half adds to the emotional ride that the song is. Stunning. Stripped of any production? No. Switch to 1:43 to see minor details.

MMIX/Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall: We all know about this, don't we? First single blah bleh. Took a lot of time to grow but it did. This is their attempt at making something which is uplifting, raising hope and a dance track at the same time. Scottish riffs but still loses me at the "wa-wa" part.

Major Minus: Hello Jonny (again?). Much dispute has been done with live and album version. What people fail to realise is that when bands make changes to sounds (muffling, adding sounds etc.) it is in context to the album. Paranoia, fear, being watched etc. This one is like the bad a** song of the record.

U.F.O.: A short, simple acoustic track reminiscent of "Prospekts March" more than "Parachutes"

Princess of China: The most talked about song even before release. Many would have hated it before listening. No Jonny here, it's all Rihanna with Chris (and it works surprisingly well). The string arrangement is impressive (isn't it always). Synths, crashing and uneasy computerized sounds. This one is different than anything they have done before, it's bound to polarize views and deep down Coldplay knew this would happen. They are happy to risk it and that's what credible in an artist.

Up In Flames: A last minute addition. Again simple but immensely tragic (highly depressive at times too). This conveys hopelessness until Chris slowly whispers at the end "Can we pour some water on?" .Beautiful.

A Hopeful Transmission/Don't Let It Break Your Heart: An explosive penultimate track very similar to some Killer songs. The drums are heavy. Lyrics seem to be taken from "X&Y" era but Jonny's persistent play (minimal but at important points) makes it very likely single in times to come. The ending with flashy sound patches and heart-beat bass again makes it more graphical.

Up With Birds: In the first part of this song Chris almost gives in but slowly with the bird call (yes, there are bird noises) it turns all optimistic with Jonny adding the turning point. "A simple plot but I know one thing. Good things are coming our way". Indeed.

The reason I keep coming back to "Achtung Baby" is because U2 had built that album after some disappointment from the media they faced for "Rattle and Hum". They started from scratch, used voice muffling, effects etc. etc. It was a masterpiece.

The attention to detail in this record is much more than any. They have worked their heart out to get the details right to convey a message, to paint a picture, to make it more graphic. Many call that "over production".

It is very important to know that everything (from addition of noises to effects) was carried out to say a story. I wonder how many tried to follow the same from Track 1 to 14. It's a concept album (howsoever simple).

That will be all.

Liked Viva La Vida? You'll love this.

I became a Coldplay fan just about a month and a half ago, and isn't that just the right time? The band's putting out a fifth album (first concept album), and I can get my hands on it for a very fair price! Awesomeness.

Chances are, you have heard the first half of the CD by way of singles and/or live performances.

Tell you what, this is just the kind of music I spend hours trying to find everyday. I liked Viva La Vida, and love Mylo Xyloto. The CD is energetic, yet versatile. Chris's falsetto, too, works flawlessly on this genre. It is what works great for Coldplay.

I love each track on...

I love each track on the album, except for the last two tracks. I have a personal grudge against Don't Let It Break Your Heart; it is much like their previous sound, and I don't like the fact that that sound is doing something on a great record like MX. Up With The Birds has an offsetting first half, but it transcends into a great second half; so it kind of compensates.

My "absolute" favorites? MX/Hurts Like Heaven, Paradise, Princess of China, and Up In Flames.

P.s. The moment they said Rihanna was on a track, I was down. Don't worry. She's done a great job here!

Coldplay does it again...

Chris Martin leads Coldplay into a new era, creating completely new sound and yet retaining several elements of their sound(which made it a great band in the first place).
My personal favourites:
1.Paradise
2.Hurts like heaven
3.Every teardrop is a waterfall
4.Princess of China...

Even though I found all of them great to listen with epic music and expressive lyrics. The album with a central theme of Revolution in the making(my personal opinion), is a revolution of sorts itself.
MUST BUY for any serious Coldplay fans out there!

A most joyous affair!

By far, their most adventurous album. Coldplay have finally realized that they cannot break new grounds but can always be a band that everyone will enjoy listening to. Mylo Xyloto is a sonic landscape that soars high and paints a canvas of colors. A graffiti movement that doesn't get as surprising as 'Viva La Vida' but recaptures the same spirit.

Great Album!

Wow. I must admit I was skeptical about how this album would turn out.
I'd heard Mylo Xyloto which I loved and Princess Of China which I wasn't a huge fan of.
They seemed to be experimenting with post-processing and as a result Chris' vocals in a few songs are rather distorted. However, overall,...

Euphoric!

Many have already written quite detailed and interesting reviews- i'd just like to impress upon the fact that this album is a great mood elevator, vibrant, optimistic- I wonder why it didn't win grammys though got nominated. Worth a buy definitely! (View complete review)
