X & Y
Record labels started beefing up security with highly aniticipated releases prevent leaks. I've noticed that a lot this year with Weezers new album and especially Coldplays, X&Y which hasn't been leaked which is a great feat. Until today. I passed on the live versions and all the others, then just few minutes ago on guy came up and and said he had it and here it is. Well actually not literally but its on a webpage and someone else pointed to its whereabouts. I don't see what all the hypes about, Coldplay doesn't amaze me, they don't break new ground they just know how to make a good single. Don't get me wrong the album is a solid release, and it sounds good from what I've heard while writing this, it just won't be playing in my car or on my computer often. I like Thome Yorkes views on Coldplay that I read in Stereogum which was printed in Newsweek;
Martin admits he winced when Radiohead's Thom Yorke, one of his heroes, labeled Coldplay "lifestyle music" —- a dig at the band's universality in films, stores, airports and Mom's iPod.
CHRIS MARTIN: "It's like unrequited love. I'm in love with a lot of things. Some of those things love me back. And some of them don't —- and one of them is Radiohead."
