9/10 -> A-

I never expected Coldplay would do anything right, but Viva La Vida was and still is their only good album. It's filled with greatness all around. The last track (last two) might be the only real weak point.

It's pretty good. Gets better on repeat listenings. I'm only disappointed they couldn't do more with that terrific changeover in "42".

Yeah, the last third of 42 is just a complete mess.

The album is really great pop rock. Coldplay has really mastered making an extremely wide-appealing album. While the album as a whole may not appeal to everyone, there is a song on the album for everyone.

It's easily weaker than Rush to the Blood and probably not as good as Parachutes, but it's better than X&Y (though I think Fix You and Talk are better than anything in this album). And that's pretty much enough for me to love it.

A-

Lovers in Japan, what a track. Viva La Vida, what an even better track! Again, they're all great.

A+
