viva la streaming or that album that isn't so bad

    In light of recent events, we're forgiving British rockers Coldplay for all fifty minutes of 2005's X&Y (we'll give them a few minutes of decent material that needs no apology). Other than that, the album was a low point in the career of Chris Martin and the boys, one that child-of-Coldplay Apple Martin will leave out when she brags to her friends about her parents. However, there is no way she will leave this one out: Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends is available for streaming around the world just a week before it's release, and to our surprise... we like it.

    Any fans of Brian Eno (who happened to produce the album), tales of revolution and kings, or music in general, will find this album pleasing and accessible. The music is rooted in Coldplay building blocks, and yet, has an edge of development and (gasp) artistic progression. Whereas X&Y was a stale reflection of the least enticing moments of Rush of Blood to the Head, this is a new monster; one that has the bite to be unique and attractive. Check it out here.

    Coldplay had to delay their tour by two weeks due to "production setbacks." This means they won't meet the kickoff date in Philly. We're wondering if they are having trouble with those mysterious magic balls...-joe puglisi
