[Alternative] Mylo Xyloto – Coldplay

Posted: November 19, 2011 in Alternative Rock


Hello to all the music lovers out there.  I know many of you will be traveling for the holiday and relaxing, so I thought I might give you some tunes to listen to while you are safely driving to your destination or relaxing with some turkey in your belly.  The new Coldplay ablum “Mylo Xyloto” is a great piece of music.  The band has an amazing way come combining Chris Martin‘s low and high vocals with some great guitar, keyboard tones, and beats.  We all know the singles “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” and “Paradise”  so I am going to leave those for them to speak for themselves.  The highlight of this album has to be the beats.  Listening to beats in several songs, especially “Up in Flames” and “Princess of China”, you could easily mistake them for a Eminem, Lil Wayne, or Drake beat.  No wonder Chris Martin has paired up with the likes of Rihanna and Kanye West so well.  The band has an amazing way of connecting with people across the world with some very realistic lyrics twisted and constructed with a “fairy tale” flavor.  Examples of this are, “once upon a time we fell apart” and “I be a bright red rose come bursting through the concrete”.  There are too many things to say about the band and the album but I am going to let you listen to it and enjoy it how you want to.
