Like previous Coldplay work, “X&Y” takes a little bit of time to seep into your veins. The first time I listened to it, my immediate impression was that it was a natural growth from the previous offering (especially the first track), although with even catchier tunes. After three or four listenings, however, I found myself wanting to play it over and over again. The music is absolutely gorgeous - melodious pleasure that just keeps on getting better.
From my perspective, this is the best release of 2005 so far. You're going to want a copy in your hi-fi, on your computer, and in your car - so rip and burn away. Highly recommended.
