Amazing

Quite the surprise, Coldplay have created one of the most immersive, progressive, and genuine pop rock albums to ever exist. With its exquisite flow, fulfilling songs, and a fantastic overall theme, “Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends” does not receive the credit that it deserves.

Color: Green
FAV TRACKS: Viva La Vida, 42, Lovers in Japan, Violent Hill, Strawberry Swing, Cemeteries of London, Yes, Lost!, Death and All His Friends
LEAST FAV: Life in Technicolor
