Stream: Coldplay's "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall"
Not likely that Coldplay's choice of "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" as a title of their comeback single will win over Jon Pareles. Still, for the band that has a propensity to be as popular as they are for not worrying about fussy critics, this is likely to keep Chris Martin's brand intact.
All of the anthemic Brian Eno-isms are still intact here for this upbeat, cross-cultural ode to listening to music really loud. Now, what are Martin's "rebel songs" anyhow?
Comments are piling up on this YouTube stream already, and this one is about right:
"just like any other coldplay song.... the more u listen to it the more you fall in love with it!!!!"
...well the first half, anyhow. According to Coldplay.com, the single is available for download on iTunes now!
