Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends (Gatefol&hellip ~ Coldplay

I don't even know where to start with this review! In my opinion the album is best understood with a careful reference to their earlier material.

If you are familiar with their first EP, "Blue Room", as well as several of their b-sides from the "Parachutes" and "Rush of Blood to the Head" single releases, you will notice that Coldplay liked to experiment with different sounds and the way that they were produced (E.g., "Only Superstition", "Easy To Please", "1:42").

I bought this due to the price, and that's its only saving grace, simply because it won't hurt my wallet to simply chuck it in the bin.

The software is really unstable. For some reason the device utility easily picks up the wireless networks and can provide all the information you may need, such as signal strength, but is awful beyond that.

For some reason it can never connect first time; and if you are lucky, having plugged and unplugged the device several times it may just decide to start working. It's so unpredictable, and not a piece of kit you need if time is in short supply for you. I spent upwards of 30 mins trying to get it to connect earlier… Read more
