By using Delacroix's magnificient "Freedom Leading The People" painting as an album cover, why didn't Coldplay just call the album "Vive la Vie"?
And just what message are they trying to get across with revolutionary imagery??
Is the New Revolution coming? And if it's coming, is "Long Live Life" really appropriate when revolutions are in fact rarely bloodless?
I'd prefer "Vive La Liberté" for a revolutionary slogan!
