Coldplay's fifth and highly anticipated album, "Mylo Xyloto" comes at a critical point in their profession as well as the production future of their label Parlophone. For over a decade now they have been producing amazing music, and certainly one of the most prominent bands in the world. They are loved by the critics and worship by their fans while others still have difficulties in accepting the hype around them because the music is classy and never adventurous and exciting. Their earliest albums looked to be more mood swings with each release. So in hindsight, it seems right that they brought Brian Eno on board to assist them accomplish their musical desires. Brian Eno’s sonic landscapes added a new element to David Bowie's dark music and to U2's great work.
Now with Coldplay’s new album release date fast approaching, yet they certainly have had a grand groove coming up. The first single off their new album “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” was released in June. The track itself is fun, up-tempo, and enjoyable to listen to. The band has tried out with varying their music and style, and that variation is evident here. The second single off the album “Paradise” was released in September. A classic Coldplay song, bring what fans have cherished from the melodic music that made the band so popular.
It really sounds great, and certainly flows wonderfully from Chris Martin's voice.I truly believe their new album does deliver, and based on what I have heard from them so far, they certainly will produce more paradise to follow.
