Coldplay Fifth Album
October 24, 2011 by staff
Coldplay pretends that the element of surprise on her fifth studio album, “Mylo Xyloto” (Capitol), obtaining the final cheat, Brian Eno, who has done the best partners in the past, such as Talking Heads, U2 and David Bowie to banish habits of business as usual.
Eno, who also worked with the British quartet in his 2008 album, “Viva la Vida or Death and all his friends,” attributed “enoxification” and, more tangibly, with all the songs cowriting “Xyloto Mylo.” Their presence can be felt in the details, the way songs evokes the paintings with his depth of field and subtle color blends.
However, Coldplay has a formula, and formula that prevails in the “Mylo Xyloto” despite the presence of Eno. This will ensure a certain number of hits and commercial radio airplay considerable, but they thought of a Coldplay-Eno collaboration as a ticket to a reinvention – like U2 achieved with “Achtung Baby” in 1991 or Talking Heads with ” Remain in Light “in 1980 under the direction of Eno – will be disappointed.
Innovation is not really the point of Coldplay – at least not anymore. What has otherwise been a fairly disjointed time mainstream rock, the quartet has sold 40 million albums to think big. Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Champion come across as rock stars of the most modest, self-deprecating kind, and who aspire to write universal, feel-good songs: from discovery “Yellow” in 2000 to through “Clocks,” “Fix You” and “Viva La Vida”, which have reliable distributed durable radio singles.
Although the band has played with new sounds (movements of art-rock of “X & Y” in 2005 and the accents of the music around the world in “Viva la Vida or Death and all his friends”), “Mylo Xyloto “is essentially a blueprint for the sing along concert – sensitive to the type of rock is the answer to the Black Eyed Peas Black ‘party-till-what-the celebration.
The new album is inspired by the 70 Bruce Springsteen, who wrote about blue-collar kids trying to escape her bleak past and find that in many cases it is possible. The music was opera, full of archetypal characters and spectacular gains. “Mylo Xyloto” is a second-hand version of the tales, short on details and defines sharp images of Springsteen songs, but in the grand pop hooks and optimism. Album’s title characters are in love and career. It’s “just us against the world”, trying to survive “madness” and “chaos, as the eddies.” They are the street urchins full of “spray-can the soul” that “from under the rubble sing a rebel song.”
The narrative awkward with the support of two types of songs – ballads, hymns Enormo scarce and, joined by three short instrumentals that give the album a sense of cohesion, a trail of blood in the next (an Eno-esque classic touch) . After a brief introduction, the band released three strokes designed to shake the walls of “Hurts Like Heaven”, “Paradise” and “Charlie Brown”, full of “Whoah-oh! Vocal hooks, falsetto singing, guitars cascaded , sumptuous keyboards, drums crash the songs back to full speed after sudden immersion in a short silence. You will recognize many of the movements of other records: not only Springsteen, but The Killers, Kings of Leon The Arcade Fire or its decision-making Springsteen, as well as breast lift, beating U2 and Radiohead pursued longing. The Big appropriate even bagpipes, guitars sound like 80′s at “Every tear is a waterfall. ”
Coldplay strategically deployed a handful of ballads for contrast, “us against the world”, “UFO”, “Up in Flames”. Martin milks these, the most intimate moments, the world-weary troubadour begging a lover, or both to God “lift this band of the eyes (and) want to see again.” Diversion is a strange one, apparently stuck-together Rihanna collaboration with specialized hooks, which punches up “the Princess of China”, with Martin in the middle of the album’s emphatic rhythms and chopped hive, buzzing synths.
As for the desperate and Xyloto Mylo lovers, everything is resolved at the end – and how could not a story of Chris Martin? A last-minute surprise would have been totally out of character for an album that plays this insurance.
