SONG OF THE DAY: COLDPLAY – “ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME”

Before you inwardly groan upon sighting this Song of the Day post and begin yelling some diatribe about how Coldplay is overplayed, over-commercialized, and destined to become the new Nickelback, shut the fuck up and press play. This brand new release may not be as good as Coldplay’s old haunts like “Clocks” or “Speed of Sound” or “Viva la Vida,” but it’s also much better than any of their other releases in the past few years. “Adventure of a Lifetime” is colorful, whimsical, infectious, and well-engineered. At least give it a shot, please?
