It was only a matter of time; the biggest release of 2008 has leaked and is ‘out there’. I’ve only listened to a few tracks so a more comprehensive review will have to wait until I’ve escaped the drugery of exams.
Initial listens however suggest somthing far more fresh and interesting than the car crash than was X&Y there’s some new sounds and influences in there, and whilst it isn’t, as Chris Martin emphatically declared at last years Brits the “end of Coldplay as you know them“. They are definately ‘rejuvenated’.
Just to wet your appetite for the full release next week I’ve included a couple of tracks below.
