Yes, the name of a Coldplay song and also the answer to the question as to whether or not I bought the new album. I know I was thinking of not buying it, and many people on coldplaying find my anti-coldplay pro-radiohead banter redundant, I actually did buy it. It was fairly cheap ($11.99) and also came with a free poster. So today I picked that up and also purchased British Sea Power's first two albums along with Elbow's latest album (which is fantastic by the way).
The first listen to Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends was a memorable one. I was with my good friend Robin, a fellow Coldplay and music lover. We parked in the China Town parking lot overlooking the Bedford Basin, Halifax, and that boat shed thingy. I wasn't blown away first listen, its different, still haven't decided if I like it or not. I'll be doing a full album review sometime very soon once I listen to it a few more times.

yeah - as for the album.. first impression was good.. but I need time to digest what is actually happening in this album! First listen was for sure enhanced by the location and company though! I still love that as soon as we passed under the tunnel to leave it started to rain.. that was so cool :)

All i have to say is this. .

"I "love" the album! But it took me a while to get to this point. And im afraid that i might love it to in love it so much that i out love it. Hopfully that doesnt happen"

I'm planning to write a review, too. I still need to buy it though :D But here it's probably more expensive than where you live - I think it's about 18 euros (with tax already) and I really don't have much money. :s
