5.0 out of 5 stars I can feel it coming..., 29 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Prospekt's March (Audio CD)
What I was inevitably hoping for when passing over my £6 for this EP is that it would contain some spectacular gem of Yellow or Viva La Vida proportions. Inevitably this is not the case - if Coldplay had another super-hit up their sleeves which just 'wasn't ready' for the album, they would have put the release date back. What we have here, then, does not contain any hit singles. But that doesn't make it remotely bad.

It does feel like an extension of Viva La Vida (the album) - the new songs have a similar feel to the most recent LP. I wonder if Glass of Water could have made it onto the album - perhaps as the last track - it has a set- or album-closing majesty about, much like the final track on Viva La Vida. Now My Feet Won't Touch The Ground is a lovely acoustic song, reminding very much of Kingdom Come, but also with a nod to Coldplay's pre-parachute songs. It is probably my highlight.

Of the songs which appear on Viva La Vida, only Life In Technicolor ii has any real value - the familiarity of the instrumental mixed with a wailing melody make for an excellent track, which I look forward to seeing live. Lost and Lovers In Japan provide nothing new in "remixed" form, but it is nice to have some familiar tracks to break up the new ones.

In all, I am enjoying Prospekt's March greatly. And I look forward to enjoying it more as time goes by. As is always the case with Coldplay's records, this is a grower, and the six or seven listens I've given it won't do it justice. But I can feel it coming.

And there aren't any bad tracks on here - it is Coldplay, after all... And it's not very expensive!
