14 Songs, 44 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Reuniting with producer Brian Eno, Coldplay doubled down on the filigreed sound that had characterized Viva La Vida, setting Mylo's widescreen sci-fi story about love and graffiti against a backdrop of shimmering guitars, kaleidoscopic synths, and soaring choruses. Even sparingly arranged songs like the acoustic guitar–driven "Us Against the World" pulse with the drama of piano chords and gauzy atmospherics. And when the band cut loose on anthems like "Paradise" and "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall," they sound intent on provoking nothing less than rapturous delight.
