EP Review... Coldplay - Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall EP

What is it with bands making comebacks this year? It seems that all of my bands I loved as a teenager are all coming back for me to reminisce in and bathe in their magnificence! So who today? Coldplay, the band that stormed onto the scene in the late 90's are back with a fresh new approach to Indie-Rock. So let the review commence!

Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall:
First impressions? In some ways it's alarmingly Pop-Rock. The synth-heavy intro and lyrics feels way too much like selling out, but they don't. As the track progresses it generates this Electric-Rock anthem that has already got me hooked! The beats sound like something familiar (X&Y anyone). People may say they are coping other artists but the way I see it, Coldplay are always ahead of the trend, just wait!

Major Minus:
Coldplay do a bit of Phyc, and I do stress it is only a bit. This song from the start sounds much better than 'Ever Teardrop...'. However the band have not yet revealed whether ‘Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall’ or ‘Major Minus’ will appear on their forthcoming fifth studio album. But if it doesn't this will do down in history as another brilliant B-Side! It seriously is 3minutes and 31seconds of pure jaw dropping Indie-Rock!

Moving To Mars:
Continuing the pattern of different styles of songs on the EP this track is just a Pinao, Chris Martin and some harmonies in the background. It then morphs into some weird Ska/Reggae beats and then gets back into the acoustic groove. And then it ends up on the stunning guitar solo!
