Forget everything you knew about Coldplay, "Speed of Sound," "Clocks," all have been turned upside-down in amazing and glorious fashion. Coldplay drops their trademark sound for something completely different, and the world of music might never be the same again.

The sound is possibly indie, definitely something out of the U.K., and certainly something new we've never heard before. It's surreal, it's art, it's a new breed of rock. The lyrics are not as cryptic as previous efforts, but still not a spelled out song, with the only chorus making a shred of sense, "If you love me, won't you let me know?" A haunting picture is painted of winter, and the song certainly paints and fits the mood.

Chris Martin never sounded better vocally, and they go perfectly with the song. As for catchiness, I don't think this is one you'll be singing in the grocery store, but you'll remember the general feel of the song.
As for negatives, there isn't any. Take the song, or leave it. It certainly won't appeal to everyone.

Overall, not the first thing you'd think of when it comes to summer music, but I see a world in which this song becomes a big hit. Certainly over the pond. The song is a haunting painting of ole', with originality, and the element that really makes the song, the mood. You might not find another thing like it, and you're certainly not going to confuse it with something else. Let more U2 comparisons come in, they're as good, and should be as successful. Take it or leave it, Coldplay never ceases to amaze.

I like and good music to listen to. It is one of my favorite albums. I get the songs stuck in my head and sing them.

Violet Hill is one of Coldplay's classic songs and my second favorite off the CD after Viva La Vida.
This song has a nice winter feel and could be played as part of a mixed playlist along with Christmas music when transitioning in or out of the season.

When I worked at the Las Vegas Hilton, this was one of their lobby songs.
