Speed of Sound... A Bridge to Cross
on 19 May 2005
Coldplay's new album is sure to be a huge hit, and quite possibly one of the greatest albums of the decade. Speed of sound is the likeliest choice for a new single off their highly anticipated album because of the easily accessed lyrics and melody. It sounds like 'Clocks', as most people have stated, but the reason it has been chosen for the first single is because its the song most people can recognize as being Coldplay's, since it replicates similar sounds off AROBTTH. As a previous person has mentioned, Coldplay uses the same three chord progressions in a few of their songs, but this is not to take in to consideration that out of the three songs mentioned, 'Speed of Sound' was the only one to be included in an album, so coming to the conclusion that Coldplay is lazy is in fact a bit premature. If you liked 'Clocks' and are a huge fan of Coldplay, then buying this album would be in your best interest, if not for the single, then for the two b-side tracks which sound much different from the Coldplay most people would recognize.
