liberty leads the people

Best (1st) single from coldplay in years : it’s fresh, exciting, and totally coldplay !
It’s literally the opposite of what Speed of sound was (a dull, self-plagiaristic single).
gotta love the buzzy guitars, the fuckin’ awesome solo, the high-pitched chorus melody and the almost emotionless piano.

In the end, it delivers what is expected of coldplay : a pop, catchy rock tune, with a few hints of originality. I don’t go to coldplay for originality. I go expecting a solid pop song.

That being said, the song could’ve been more soulful and I could’ve lived without the 40 second intro.

This being the 1st single off this album, it promises edgier content for the other tracks (the first single is usually the “poppier”-radio-friendly song off the album). I have high hopes for that fourth album. I was very dissapointed by the previous two.
