Thanks for this post, Stephen, for reviewing the album (which I've been listening to a lot of late) and for sharing your own story with vulnerability. I too miss some of the other, more substantial themes from Coldplay's 'Viva la Vida,' and will always consider it more of a classic, but I love many songs on the new album as well.
Viva La Vida is on my all time permanent iPod list. I think they will be hard pressed to top it for poetics, depth and musicality but I hope they keep trying. I look forward to hearing more from the new album. Thanks for the review Steven.
Wow! Stephen. GREAT blog! Loved it.
I'm completely with you re Viva La Vida, Mara. It's one of my all-time favorites from any band - Ben
So much better that Focus on the Family's "Plugged In" review - and so much more in line with the thoughts and feelings that I took away from my first listen-through with this album.Â Thank you!!Â :)
