About The Cold Cut...

The musings of a teenage audiophile. Indie, Rock, Hip-Hop, Rap, Dance, Dubstep, Garage, Metal... music crosses all boundaries. The Cold Cut is devoted to giving you a taste of what's going on in music at the moment.

About Me

A 17 year old taking his first tentative steps into the world of blogging. In my first year, its been up and down, from the slow first months to a busy time around the one year anniversary.

Coldplay: 'Violet Hill'

Coldplay- Violet Hill (Link 2) (Link 3)

My initial reaction to this song was a resounding 'hmmm'. My fears weren't entirely misplaced. Coldplay haven't stepped too far astray, but 'Violet Hill' isn't quite good enough to justify a 3 year absence. The band, however, have not lost their radio friendly roots. My brother found himself humming the tune a mere 5 minutes after listening to the song.

Many people have drawn Oasis comparisons, mostly due to the vocals and newly beefed up backing section. Piano, however, runs the show- kicking in 40 seconds in (after a resounding drone), the keys power this song through to its finish. The lyrics are weak: 'I wanna be a soldier who a captain on some sinking ship would stow far below. If you love me, won’t you let me know?', but all in all, 'Violet Hill' is a nice introduction to the new album.

Even though I'm slightly dissapointed, I'm happy to have them back. However, with this (and the shoddy album cover), Coldplay have become a little less untouchable.
The song is available free for one week only: head over to the band's slightly pretentious website to download it.

'Viva La Vida' has been brought forward and will now be released on June 12!

    You should've checked the lyrics:

    "I don't want to be a soldier
    With the captain of some sinking ship
    With snow, far below"

    The lyrics are very strong and open to interpretation:

    "When the future's architectured
    By a carnival of idiots on show
    You'd better lie low"

    The song is beautiful, in my opinion. A great new direction for Coldplay.

    This is some nightmarish mixture of Billy Joel (The Stranger), John Lennon (not quite sure which Beatles song this reminds me of, but it does), that one hit wonder Kix and their song "Don't Close Your Eyes," and maybe a little Oasis (which is basically just repeating what I said about Lennon anyway) and Fleetwood Mac. Weird. You shouldn't do things like that.

    To be a adroit charitable being is to be enduring a philanthropic of openness to the mankind, an ability to trust uncertain things beyond your own manage, that can lead you to be shattered in uncommonly exceptionally circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly outstanding thither the prerequisite of the ethical compulsion: that it is based on a corporation in the up in the air and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a shop than like a sparkler, something kind of dainty, but whose very particular handsomeness is inseparable from that fragility.
