MTV: Coldplay's New Album is Bipolar
Originally posted on June 08, 2008 9:00 AM
MTV's review of Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends is now available online, and essentially labels the album as "bipolar" while revealing that the album will be liked by pretty much everyone. The following is an excerpt:
Who's going to like Coldplay's new record? Everyone who liked their previous records, which is to say pretty much everyone on the planet. Blog snobs? Check (they'll begrudgingly admit to liking Parachutes and A Rush of Blood to the Head). Sorority girls? Yep (huge fans of "Fix You," think Chris Martin is hot). Business guys who love to cut loose on the weekend? Count them in (saw band at rock-radio fest, own iPod because of "Viva la Vida" commercial). The Coldplay army is massive and loyal. They will follow you to the ends of the earth. And buy, buy, buy -- no matter what.
Though a little hard to follow because its thesis is that the album is a little hard to follow, the review is definitely worthy of a read, so be sure to do that.
