Wow. I am really shocked how much I like Mylo Xyloto. I am a long-time Coldplay fan and just love their music, but I wasn't sure about this record due to the slight change in style. The first half of the record I was mostly familiar with due to the singles, live versions and the side A sampler. The only song on side B that I had heard was Major Minus. Obviously, the second part of the record was what I was looking forward to the most as it was mostly new, unheard Coldplay!

I can definitely see why this record has fans divided. It is a new sound for Coldplay in terms of production and direction. However, there are many tracks where 'early' Coldplay is still there, just under new layers. Utimately, I gave the record a 4/5, with a point deducted for some unnecessary over-production. I do truly feel it deserves it though. It is a good mix of all the previous records, while still moving forward.

Mylo Xyloto:
Just beautiful. I love this as the opening track and the transition into Hurts Like Heaven. Although, I am with others who have said it's hard to listen to just MX or HLH by themselves...

Hurts Like Heaven:
Probably the track I was most fearing as I love the live version and people were saying it was so different on the record. I was pleasantly surprised that it did not crush my enjoyment of the track! I LOVE this song! Yes, it is a bit over-produced, but I also think that makes it interesting. There are so many sounds and layers to the track that a good set of headphones brings out.

Paradise:
No surprises here. The second single. It's definitely a grower. I liked it when I first heard it, but the introduction is just fantastic the more I listen to it. It fits so well on the record now I have heard it in context.

I'm a fan of Coldplay. Even if their work isn't revolutionary, it sounds good, and each album has been different from the last. I really, really fell in love with them after hearing their astonishingly good album Viva La Vida. With it's really interesting world-inspired music, moving string sections, crisp instruments piano parts, just beautifully played guitar parts, and unique rhythms, it's an all around great album that's different from most anything I've heard in the past. Needless to say I was eagerly awaiting this new album, expecting it to follow from the greatness that inspired Viva.

To some extent, they hit the mark musically. Their songs are catchy, fit the general musical feel of 2011, but still differentiate themselves with Chris's vocals and Buckland's signature guitar riffs. It's good music.

However, words cannot express the disappointment I have with the mastering on this CD. It is absolutely horrible. Every single track is at 11 with the volume for the duration of the song unless it fades in or fades out. There is no dynamic contrast at all. Sections that are supposed to sound loud and impressive and acoustically huge do not... which is really a crying shame because so many of the songs would benefit from such dynamics. What should be the huge crescendos in the songs instead end up sounding boring and flat, sitting right in with the rest of the song. The mixes are terribly crowded and everything is smashed together and muddy.

The vocals and drums especially suffer from this. Instead of the vocals being out front during the chorus and at times when they are clearly singing the lead in the song, they end up pushed together with the rest of the "accompanying" parts and sound like they are competing for acoustic clarity.

I was hoping the latest offering from Coldplay would match their last LP, which was a tall task in my book. "MX's" predecessor, "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends", was a dark, progressive journey into the realm of broken hearts, war, death and glimpses of hope and prosperity. The songwriting, producing and overall effort was top notch. It remains on the top of my Desert Island Disc list. To say I had lofty expectations for "MX" would be an understatement.

After one listen I am proud to say that my expectations were easily met, and at times surpassed.

I love music that encompasses a thick sound. Coming from the school of progressive rock, my two favorite bands (Genesis and Marillion) always had full, dynamic properties to their songs, many washed with synthesizers, reverb and other atmospheric effects. And it wasn't as a gimmick; it was because those properties were necessary to sustain the mood. When "Viva" came out, songs like "Cemeteries of London" and "42" made great use of these techniques, and luckily it continues on "MX". Strings, synthesizers, and other choral-like sounds are doused over many of the songs, and guess what....it works! "Paradise" is absolutely gorgeous, highly atmospheric, and sounds perhaps a distant relative of "Lovers in Japan" mixed with "Strawberry Swing." "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" is a bright, energetic celebration, with reverbs, soaring guitar and thick chords surrounding it. "Charlie Brown" will no doubt be a live anthem, with a catchy hook and, dare I say, groovin' sound.

Although I am praising the use of effects heavily, there are moments of stripped-down glory reminiscent of "Parachutes." Songs like "U.F.O.

Sorry, but couldn't disagree with you more. This is their best release to date, even better than X&Y. If you don't like this kind of music, then try someone else. It's all a matter of taste. But don't ask Coldplay to make a different kind of music, because many of us love it just the way it is.

The band says it is set for release on October 24, 2011
The U.K., by tradition, chooses to release their new albums on Mondays, whereas the U.S. has used Tuesdays for new releases since the early 90s. Before that there were different release days for the different record companies, giving those with earlier release dates a slightly unfair sales... Read More
