Speed of Sound
Coldplay
EMI/Capitol

Their new first single off this long-awaited album sounds like a cross between U2 and Duran Duran. Heavily keyboard based song that uses standard electric piano and string ensembles sounds with a lot of tasty layered clean effects and fuzzed out guitars mixed neatly inside a tight drum beat.

What I heard reminded me a lot of the Joshua Tree album by U2. Donít get me wrong, itís a nice song and well performed and produced. I just want to be clear this reminded me of my first listen to With or Without You.
