Being the winner of best rock album at the Grammy Awards event in 2009 would have reason enough to listen to the latest album of this British band. Viva la Vida album does feel different than Coldplay's previous albums. This time Coldplay instill a strong element of baroque pop, with strings nuasa more than piano playing which is usually the hallmark of Coldplay's previous. With the song "Viva la Vida" is lined up to star as the Song of the Year, rebound on this album generally nuanced spiritual with stomping beats, minimal tones of melancholy. In addition to "Viva la Vida", see also the single "Lovers in Japan" which again highlight the elements of the string, invite your imagination wander into the refreshing nature. Coldplay style that might overdo known to arise in the closing track, "Death and All His Friends". The newest edition in the form of a double CD titled "Prospekt's March" presenting new songs with a surprise of a single "Lost +" which was sung along with hip hop artist Jay-Z. This is Coldplay's fourth album is rich in nuances and experimentation, worth mentioning as their best album to date.
