Coldplay: Mylo Xyloto
LP & 45 single
Keeping in line with car jam albums, Mylo Xyloto is another favorite of mine to listen to while driving around. The first single off this album, Paradise, was the first time I actually remember listening to Coldplay. Shortly after, I downloaded the whole album and was enamored with it for a time.
Compared to their earlier works, there isn't much that carries over in this effort. It seems after X&Y, Coldplay really took an initiative to reinvent themselves with each new effort they throw themselves into. While I can see this being a point of frustration for those early fans, I personally respect a groups tenacity to continually challenge themselves with defining their sound.
Mylo Xyloto has a decent blend of loud and quiet jams. Hurts Like Heaven, Every Teardrop is a Waterfall, and Major Minus are a few volume turners, while Paradise and Us Against the World are a few of the quieter jams. Admittedly, I don't spin this as often as some of Coldplay's other albums, but it's perfect to put on every once in a while!
