“a hook-laden melody is a movable feast”
… writes The Guardian critic Alexis Petridis about Coldplay’s latest offering, Mylo Xyloto, despite a few reservations.
Actually, that’s what I admire about Chris Martin and company – their seemingly reliable ability to come up with gently infectious melodies…
… and lines like, “In your tears, and in your blood/ In your fire, and in your flood/ I heard you laugh, I heard you sing/ I wouldn’t change a single thing.”
I hope the new one is good. And they even have a Charlie Brown song in it, or so it’s been reported. Have to march off to the Fully Booked Taguig palace real soon to check it out from the listening racks.
In the meantime, it’s 1:11 a.m. Time for breakfast. I want warm rice, two sunny side up eggs, and hot coffee, please. Grazie!
