After years of waiting, Coldplay's new album, "Viva la Vida, or Death and All His Friends", is going to be released THIS WEEK!!!!! If you don't want to wait, go to www.iheartmusic.com and listen to the entire album. I'm listening to it now, and I have to say it sounds awfully good. The songs have the signature Coldplay style, but Martin and his other bandmates experimented a good deal. They added different musical influences to the songs, breaking out of the alt-rock mold. And it seems to work really well. It's too early to say which songs are my favorite. I like them all!
