5.0 out of 5 stars be careful before purchasing June 26, 2011
By dm
Format:MP3 Music
First off... The Every Teardrop is a Waterfall EP is supposed to have 3 songs:
Every Teardrop is a Waterfall
Major Minus
Moving to Mars

For some reason, Amazon is not including Moving to Mars...

Anyway, I've heard all three songs and they are fantastic. It's not like their older songs, but that's to be expected with Coldplay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazon Catch Up Please June 27, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Is amazon going to catch up with itunes and release the full ep that coldplay releases for download? I don't use itunes and refuse to do so, because of their file format being product specific, but amazon needs to catch up with the times. Are they hoping to sell this album twice to coldplay fans? Why are you treating your customers this way? Where is the third song "Moving To Mars?" Get it together! Or maybe I will find a company that does, like emusic.com

You guys are too slow with album releases. itunes has it all way before you guys.

But like the other person before me mentioned, this is an awesome EP. Once I can download it, I will.

4.0 out of 5 stars A blend of Strawberry Swing/Lovers in Japan June 3, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
After years of waiting, expectations were high. As usual, Coldplay has experimented with changing their sound and style, and that desire for alteration is evident here. However, it does seem to have lingering similarities to Strawberry Swing and Lovers in Japan, from the previous album.
Sadly, this song didn't have the WOW factor for me. Don't get me wrong. It's catchy, it's enjoyable to listen to, I think it's just missing the emotional attachment that I immediately embraced when I first heard Viva La Vida, Life in Technicolor ii, In My Place, Politik, Fix You, etc.
Enjoyable, fun to listen to, I'm just hoping it gets better as more of the album is released.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unmistakably Coldplay June 3, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
The song itself is fun, upbeat, and enjoyable. I have heard others describe it as "not Coldplay". However, this song is true to form for Coldplay. They are all about experimenting with each new album. I highly doubt that this will be the hit single from the new album, but it is a nice introduction. If anything, it allows me to look forward to what else the new album has to offer.

Well played, Coldplay. Well played.

The best song on the EP is missing. I hate to say this, but I'm going to iTunes. I HATE ITUNES.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cut and Paste but Good June 19, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
After all the plagiarism allegations that spring up around Viva La Vida I'm not surprised to see it happen again here. There's definitely a similarity to Sacados, but Sacados actually sampled from Peter Allen's I Go To Rio and Coldplay gives credit to that song. I think what they're doing is just part of the cut and paste mentality of our time. I do think they elevate the raw material to a higher level. Furthermore, their lyrics are far better than both of the other songs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reserved anticipation June 7, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
This feels like a B-Side from Viva La Vida. It's too "wall of sound" for me, everyone sort of lost in the mix. I prefer the more stripped down sound of their earlier works. I am still hopeful for the new album.

2.0 out of 5 stars What Happend To Cassic Coldplay? July 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What happend to the old classic Coldplay sound. I have to believe that the old producer had allot to do with their beautifull sound. Too bad he died. I think Coldplay's music quality is begining to get watered down a bit with the new producer or the band is loosing their inspiration. Coming from a guy who's used to listening to classical music, where melody is everything, Coldplays melodies are sounding too plain. The only songs that are the most artistic in Viva la vida is: strawberry swing, prospects march and glass of water. Where in the old albums every song had something special. Now this new teardrops song is seriously lacking melody, one note melody... seriously!!! Not to mention the lyrics are really simplistic. And what is up with the singers voice, you can hardly understand what he is saying and that 1 million voices effect they got going on just kills it for me. Also I have to say also that the arrangements are getting to be a bit too much (producer) seriously, do the arrangements need to sound so darn fat with electronics. Seriously what happend to that simple yet intricate music they used to produce?

3.0 out of 5 stars 4-star track, 1 star vinyl pressing (5-star B-side!)
This tune has a really great vibe to it and Amazon Canada has the 7" vinyl at a great price - $2.99 as of this writing. Not sure why Amazon US is charging almost 3 times as much! Read more

"X & Y" was the beginning of the end. I keep hoping they'll get back to their vocal-centric roots but each new iteration is worse than the previous one. Read more
