Death and All His Friends
We bought Viva La Vida last week the instant it was released. It became our trip's soundtrack. *sigh* It's nice to see Coldplay become so successful, but part of me mourns the days when we seemed to be the only ones listening to them. Jared and I saw Chris Martin play acoustically at Martini Ranch (a tiny bar in Scottsdale). I was close enough to touch his shoes, and at the close of his performance, caught the guitar pick. Now that Coldplay is a household name, I can guarantee that won't be happening again anytime soon. The new album is also wonderful in that broody way that I adore, so I won't complain as long as they keep on coming.
