Product Description

Product Description

Mylo Xyloto was produced by Markus Dravs, Daniel Green and Rik Simpson with "enoxification" and additional composition by Brian Eno. According to Chris Martin, it is a concept album based on a love story with a happy ending, inspired by old school American graffiti and HBO TV series The Wire among other things. Coldplay scooped the best British Group award at the 2012 BRITs off the back of the album's success.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb but... 26 Oct 2011
By Patrick Lye VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
... this album is going to have a lot of teething problems.

Firstly, as has been the way with most of Coldplay's work: The album is very much unlike their previous stuff. Don't get me wrong, the album shares many parallels with all of their previous material. However, it's different enough that fans coming here expecting a remake of [Coldplay Album Name] WILL be disappointed. Admittedly, I too had my reservations when the singles were released. But it just takes a bit of getting used to - the quality is still there, it's just a different flavour.

Secondly, the album lacks a full, out-and-out single. I'm not saying the songs are weak (far from it) - but to me, the album lacks a 'frontman' of a song. There isn't really a single song that you can use to show off to a new listener (In the way that all the previous albums had key, outstanding tracks which helped keep you listening long enough for the quality of the underrated songs to come through) Alas, there is still no contender for the global play-on-loop-50-times hit that is 'Viva la Vida'. It's a shame, because nearly all of the songs are excellent

Thirdly, as has been mentioned by others: The mixing is very heavily done and will punish high and low quality speakers alike. On the first number of listens for many songs, it feels like you're met with a solid wall of noise where the vocals sound almost muffled. As a person who's a sucker for melodies, I was fine with this after a few listens - but those are more about good lyrics might find this very off-putting (at least until they can discern what's actually being said!)

As you may have gathered then: The album needs some getting used to. It's initial feel is very bright, bold and colourful - but can also feel a bit 'brash' and 'in-your-face' at times.

4.0 out of 5 stars Coldplay release another inspiring album 11 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
"Mylo Xyloto" is the fifth and most recent offering from Coldplay who are undoubtedly one of the most popular and successful bands of the past decade. Their music seems to have evolved as time has gone by and, on this particular album, the fusion of Pop, Rock and electronic sounds works to perfection, creating a very energetic and upbeat record.

"Hurts Like Heaven" is a very fast paced electronic Rock number with a great energy and infectious melody. The same can be said for the fantastic lead single "Paradise" which is a more mid-tempo track but is a true gem in that it possesses such a catchy chorus with a great string section. "Charlie Brown" follows in the same vein with a slightly rockier edge to it. After a punchy start to the album, "Up Against The World" is a pleasant and well crafted acoustic guitar ballad with Folk influences. The pace quickens once again with the addictive and anthemic "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall" and the powerful "Major Minus". "U.F.O" is a short but sweet acoustic guitar tune followed by the wonderful Pop inspired "Princess Of China", featuring Rihanna. "Up In Flames" is a piano led ballad with a strong melody and beautiful arrangements. "Don't Let It Break Your Heart" is another fantastic Rock infused creation and the final track "Up With The Birds" starts off as a very melancholic and gentle piano led ballad and builds into a nicely crafted soft rock track.

There is a slightly more commercial feel to "Mylo Xyloto" compared to the 4 previous Coldplay albums, but I feel that this is quite a positive direction the band are taking as they are proving that they are willing to think outside the box, reinvent themselves and add new dimensions to their music. "Mylo Xyloto" represents a change in direction for them, but also a step forward and is a welcome addition to Coldplay's already accomplished catalogue of music.

Coldplay's set at Glastonbury this summer bought home to me just how good this band are. No U2 pretence; just a bunch of guys who enjoy what they do and are very good at doing it. Whether it's Chris Martin on the piano or their fantastic drummer (who reminds me of Animal from The Muppet Show!) bouncing his drum kit off the floor. The new songs they played like 'Charlie Brown' and 'Every Tear Drop' sounded anthemic as you would expect. They were great.

So, along comes the album some 4 months later and it's certainly uplifting. 'Paradise' is catchy but not great Coldplay while aongs like 'Hurts like Heaven' are strong and catchy. Chris Martin is no great lyricist; what he does do is create a wash of sound that you know will raise the rooves on stadia around the world. So, why have I only given this new album three stars? Production in one word. This album has been produced to death by idiots who think that pushing the levers all the way to 'max' is the way to deliver a great album. On a good hi-fi this album sounds sounds like its coming out of a cheap transistor radio made in the sixties. It's distorted, there is little light and shade - jusy bombastic production which is a great shame. Can producers please stop doing this? Give us music that sounds natural rather than pushed up to the max.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not outstanding. 1 Oct 2013

After x&y Coldplay has been more or less repeating itself without getting any better. Still, I like their music, but this album was not remarkable.

Couldn't quite enjoy other than a couple of tracks. Very different from the experience I had with their other records.
