Coldplay - Day 2

Today's track: Coldplay - Swallowed In the Sea

Today's review: A Message

"My song is love..." croons Chris Martin, in what could be the most bored voice working today. He sounds like he might drift right into a dream state. Gone is the frantic vibe of Yellow or the soaring of Clocks. For this song we get Chris Martin, somnambulist. Over a very familiar chord progressiom Jon Buckland shows that he has still only one guitar solo in him, playing those same three notes for all their worth. A piano makes an appearance but is indistinguishable from the rest of the soundscape. "My song is love, is love alone/And I've got to get that message home," Martin sings at the end. Is it Chris? Or is the message "I've run out of ideas?"

Rolling Stone described Martin's voice the best: "The guy's voice sounded like a puppy kicked down a flight of stairs, one step at a time, and then kicked back up the flight of stairs."

And something on your damn site gives me popups when I load it.
