'Talk', the 3rd single lifted from the massive 'X&Y', is perhaps the best track on the album (aside from Fix You, naturally). It samples Kraftwerk's 'Computer Love', yet despite what the critics say, the original isn't really that good. Coldplay, on the other hand, turn it intoa sweeping, adventurous, bright-eyed neo-classic. A must have.
But if you already have the album and don't think the single is necessary, think again: the B-Side, 'Sleeping Sun', is fantastic: A bright, laid back, uplifting tune, which is very catchy and puts a smile on your face. Worth the money on it's own.
Chris and Co, we salute you.

HASH(0x92daae7c) out of 5 stars Way Of The Future 1 Feb. 2006
By Kyle W. Harbeck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sleeping Sun and Gravity ae both phenominal B-sides.

Setting Sun is beautifully layered and builds up into a huge number which must sound fantastic live. I can't help but compare Gravity to the richness of Pink Floyd.

Neither of these songs desearve to be B-sides and probably should have been held for their next album, or chosen instead of something off of X&Y.

my MAJOR gripe with this single however is the copywritting of it not allowing me to add it to my mp3 player. Regardless of having purchased the CD, I had to download it off of the internet so that I could listen as I walk.

because of that, a person will certainly reconcider purchasing the next single over downloading it.

HASH(0x92daaed0) out of 5 stars Only B-side! 27 Jan. 2006
By Locutus29 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I just got this today and there is only the Sleeping Sun song and the radio edit version of Talk. There is contradictory information on this page and, even though I would have bought it anyway, it was quite a disappointment when I opened it up and saw only one. :( Maybe there's a version out there with both b-sides, but I haven't found it yet. The Sleeping Sun song is great, of course.

HASH(0x92fe6ed0) out of 5 stars "Talk" is Coldplay's first club single 10 Feb. 2006
By hou_music - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Several single versions of Coldplay's "Talk" have been released to date, most which contain live tracks as B-sides.

However, you may not know it, but several club mixes of "Talk" have been made as well, and the track is fast becoming Coldplay's first real club hit. (A remix of "Clocks" also got some play in clubs but not to this extent.) While at first glance this may seem surprising it actually makes perfect sense. You see, the melody of "Talk" is actually sampled from Kraftwerk's 1983 electronic single "Computerlove".

The remixes of "Talk" are official mixes and have been promoted to clubs in both the U.S. and overseas. Thus far, I haven't seen any of the "Talk" remixes included on a the maxi single releases, but they may be included at some point. However, they are available on iTunes, and definitely worth purchasing.

The remixes promoted in the U.S. include the Junkie XL and Francois K mixes. Junkie XL has done a number of notable club remixes of rock tracks in the last couple of years. Their mix is outstanding - it maintains the beauty and emotional intimacy of the song but adds a distinctive "buildup" at the beginning and a strong rhythm underneath to bring it up to a whole new level.

The Francois K remix of "Talk" is a complete reworking of the song - bringing it more in style towards Kraftwerk's original "Computerlove". Very electronic, very "detached" - definitely quite an accomplishment but in my opinion not as good as the Junkie XL mix.

"Talk" will reach #3 on the Billboard Dance/Club Chart as of early March 2006.

HASH(0x92dc8174) out of 5 stars Great song, bad media 18 Mar. 2007
By Ben Applebaum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm not a coldplay fan at all, but liked this song so much I had to have it. Unfortunately, I don't like the sound of the recording on the CD5. It sounds tinny and somehow mastered wrong. Maybe it's the copy protection, but it sure ruins a great song.

HASH(0x92dc8324) out of 5 stars Great songs you can't get on Itunes! 4 Jan. 2010
By Va-cay '09er - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Sleepless Sun and Gravity are two great Coldplay songs you can not get on Itunes, so if you like Coldplay you'll love these rarely heard songs.
