I think something else I should mention in the Trinest Talk segments which are not real articles, otherwise they’d have more swearing and bad spelling in them is the emergence of Coldplays new album Mylo Xyloto.
Mylo Xyloto is an album with one of the most bizzar names in the world. Coming out later next month with an array of tracks. The idea behind it seems it has been split by a imaginary line which gives the musical tracks distinct styles. Also the album is meant to have some sort of underlying story as well, which the separation adds to the whole idea.
The first half features songs like Every Tear Drop is a Waterfall and Paradise, the more poppy styled songs from the album. As well as the best song in the world right now, Charlie Brown.
The second half however features songs like Major Minus and Up in Flames which have a more “old school” Coldplay styling. Also may I mention that Up in Flames is the most boring track ever?
Well maybe not, but it seems the more older styled tracks in the album are not as good as the new age stuff. Which seems to be more energetic and while the “hardcore” Coldplay fans can have the argument that the new stuff has no Soul, the other half which is more older styled doesn’t either to the degree they want. It seems to be fleshed out to the point its a fan service to sound the same. But don’t get me wrong- they are still good tracks.
