Thrill on Violet Hill

Ok, well maybe not "thrill" exactly, but to be concise, "Violet Hill" is a solid song. For all the talk of changing their sound and breaking away from the "trilogy" of the first three albums, it's really not that much of a departure. Granted, it's got a little tougher edge...but it's Coldplay. That's not hard to do. Beneath the smidgen of distortion and spattering of crashing guitar, the band's core sound is still there. Overall, this feels like a promising progression and I hope the rest of the album follows suit. Plus, the chorus offers sound advice "if you love me, won't you let me know." Coldplay, The Musically Inclined loves you.

Peace, kids.
