Every Teardrop is a... yawn
An example of a perfectly good song ruined by bad production. Who thought to stick a club disco beat in a Coldplay song? It has good lyrics, it's catchy, it's even a good performance, but the forced anthem feel makes it kind of a joke. It's not really the band's fault, more the producer's fault, so since I love Coldplay I'll give it three, not two or one, like I am inclined. I saw that this got four stars, and Paradise, a beautiful epic, with irresistibly catchy melodies got three stars, as did Mylo Xyloto, a good album only ruined, in my opinion, by this song. I usually trust Common Sense but I'm a little confused about this one.
I gave it 6, but that was random. It's really any age. There's absolutely nothing edgy in here. Yeah, it has some good messages, I'll give it that.
