Coldplay's only album which tries to do something different and interesting and succeeds - best album by far

Bonus points for the secret shoegaze track

Best Coldplay for me. So much creative energy. There is a certain magic that this record has that just isnt found anywhere else in their discography. It feels as though they knew this was going to be their last great album so the ambition was high and you can hear so much passion with every minute. Coldplay could have kept going with formula but instead they got absolutely horrendous. The fall of Coldplay is one of the saddest things in music history for me, because god I do love the first 4 albums

I remember hearing "Viva La Vida" when I was like, 6 years old, It was one of the first things i remember disctingly hearing and liking It. That sound has a place in my heart and there is nothing anyone can say that will change my mind. This album also is somewhat good, with a interesiting vibe and concept to It. I wish Coldplay had this kind of concept today.

Averack track rating is 83, but the average album rating is 75?... Okay. Anyway, this is along with ARBH Coldplay's best album, at least for me. It also has probably my favorite Coldplay song: Strawberry Swing. I think it's simultaneously their "poppiest" album up to that point and their most adventurous, if that makes any sense. It doesn't feel like they're playing it safe at all. I don't know, the thing is, I think it's a great album. Give it a try.

As a former Coldplay hater (rather mocker, really) I have to say this album is rather enjoyable. “Viva La Vida” and “Strawberry Swing” definitely hit me in my feels, but the rest of the songs - which aren’t bad - just don’t reach that point to be perfectly honest, and I find myself hanging between emotions and boredom.
I hate to say it but there are a bit too many moments that remind me of Radiohead or even Muse. Good moments nonetheless, but this album is clearly not a masterpiece.

I really don't get why so many people hate this album. The songs are beautiful, there are no fillers and one of the producers was Brian Eno. Unfortunately, this was Coldplay's last decent effort before they sank into the mediocrity of mainstream pop music. Still hope that they will go back to their roots in the near future, though I have doubts about it.

Per anni ho considerato i Coldplay dei pur bravi "bimbiminchia" con il poster degli U2 appeso in camera e questo album un contenitore di brani mediocri ( che in realtà non avevo mai ascoltato bene… ) riuniti attorno alla title track che, al contrario degli altri pezzi, mi è sempre piaciuta ed anzi, fa parte della colonna sonora del mio 2008. Non che il pop rock così poco rock e pure così poco pop possa aspirare ad occupare le posizioni alte dei miei gusti, ma in definitiva "Viva la vida " è un disco più che discreto...

This album seems to lose something every time I listen to it. The songs are fine, maybe even good, but I guess I just don't lime them that much
