Less stupid title than Every Teardrop is a Waterfall
Sounds like U2
Sounds better than the B-Sides around X&Y period, so I guess that bodes well for what they put on the album. As in it can't be worse than X&Y, which had some decent tracks but some utter shit too.
As with 'Every Teardrop...' (and a lot of Coldplay songs to be honest) it sounds as if the band were intent on trying something slightly different when they started, then halfway through writing it/halfway through the song itself they panic and do their level best to revert to type.
Either that or a record label exec is sat in the studio with a wet tea towel whipping Chris Martin's balls every time the song veers away from a finale that might not have a "woah-woah" crescendo.
