Most of it is just noise and almost like they are messing about. One song (Trouble in Town) stops half way through for people talking and swearing over the top, another (WOTW) sounds like Chris Martin is singing in the shower and somebody recorded it from another room. Bizarre. When I Need A Friend sounds like they've recorded a foreign church service and ends with 30 seconds of an old guy talking in a foreign language. The Arabic Song on CD2 is just piano and random chat over the top. I am truly baffled.
I genuinely think Chris Martin has lost the plot and I can't see how the other band members are happy with this album.
If this was an unknown band releasing it as their first album they would never be heard of again. Because it is Coldplay people will buy it in millions.
