X&Y (Jun. 7, 2005) - Coldplay
[Note: I bought this CD shortly after I wrote this essay. - DD] OK, I'm breaking a rule here. I am posting a record I don't own or haven't heard enough of to my a true judgment. But I can't NOT have the new Coldplay record X & Y not at least mentioned on Deaconlight.com.
So all I've heard is what I guess is supposed to be the hit, "Speed of Sound," which after a couple of listens sounds like it could have come off of their last LP, A Rush of Blood to the Head. Both that and Parachutes are amazing records, so that's why I gotta put this here now even though I haven't pick up the CD yet.
The only thing that bugs me a little is there has been so much hype around this release. I am not sure that is such a good thing, but we will see. I realize me putting this on Deaconlight.com is not going to mean the difference between whether or not you buy this. That's another reason I decided to go ahead and post this essay. There is more than enough press out there for you to base a decision on.
Now when I do get the CD if for some reason it truly sucks, I will pull this off the site, but Chris Martin and company are so talented I seriously doubt that will happen. I might eventually write up some notes if I feel inspired, but I don't see the point right now considering all the press this record is getting now.
