I did not expect them to take this turn at all, but so far I am enjoying this greatly. Perfect for a late night drive.

I think it's their best, most genuine stuff to date! I'm really digging this.

Wish they'd have made the normal LP 12 tracks though, i feel this was a record company ploy.

I'm about halfway through right now and I definitely dig the overall mood of the album so far. I'm not sure if it'll have the lasting power that their earlier albums did with me, but I can definitely see this being a great soundtrack to a walk home on a summer night.

I think it's fantastic so far. They haven't made many songs I dislike.

I guess I'm the odd one out in this thread. I just had my first listen, but I don't think I'll revisit these songs beyond "Magic", "Midnight", and maybe "Sky Full of Stars".

Never really was a huge fan of Coldplay prior to Viva, thought their albums were too mellow/vanilla-sounding for me. Mylo was a bit of a letdown compared to the previous record, but I feel the more-upbeat, stadium-ready songs they've made more recently have suited them best. This kind of sounds like a marriage between their slower songs and the heavier use of synths on Mylo, which I imagined I would've actually liked based on "Magic/Midnight". The whole thing just sounds like bits of Peter Gabriel, Justin Vernon, and Brian Eno filtered through adult alternative/pop radio to me...not quite daring enough to be "experimental", yet not accessible enough to be considered an entertaining pop record. I dunno; I'm actually really surprised at how let down I am by this.

Requires at least OS X 10.7 so now I know I need a new MacBook.

This is really enjoyable. The lyrics are pretty lame but that was to be expected. I like the direction they took for this record. "Ink" is my favorite thus far.

i never thought i'd say this about a coldplay album, but this seems like a killer record to listen to stoned.

pretty enjoyable even without that to enhance it. i'm liking it much more than their last couple of efforts.

Amazing album. Right behind Beck for album of the year for me so far.

I think iTunes shouldn't do streaming
