Daily del.icio.us for December 2nd through December 6th

…I came along, I wrote a song for you!

Coldplay was the musical guest on tonight’s episode of Saturday Night Live and they were amazing as usual. They played 3 songs and it looked like they were going into a 4th song as the show ended and the credits started to roll. They performed Viva La Vida, Lost and Yellow on the show and I hope those live performances show up on YouTube or Hulu in the next few hours.

Coldplay – Viva La Vida

Coldplay – Lost

Coldplay – Yellow

The Best Album of 2005

X&Y by Coldplay
The hyperbole around Coldplay’s latest offering is just incredible. There are people calling them the biggest band in the world and comparing them to super groups like U2 and others. I don’t about any of that but this has to be the best album of the year.

X&Y is an absolutely brilliant album that is bound to be an instant classic. I am so hooked to this album that I haven’t stopped listening to this album since the very first day of it’s release on iTunes. All of the songs are incredibly melodic, catchy and bound to be instant classics. The first single, Square One is a great song but it’s just the beginning, as what follows it even gets better. Chris Martin is just an incredible songwriter and the other members of the band are great musicians.

I read a review where the reviewer called the music on this album as ‘silent screaming’ and I think that’s is really an apt description. The album just has a huge wall of sound that’s really loud without sounding like Metallica. This is a loud, rocking album with incredible guitar work that is bound to have you hooked from the first listen.
