Are you all listening to the same song I'm listening to? 'Yes'
is truly atrocious. It sounds like a bad Beck cover-version, with Chris Martin doing an impression of Barry White...and don't even get me started on those horrendous "World Music" strings. It's like a bad version of 'Daylight'
Yeah, they're trying something (kind of) different, but so what? If it sounds as awful as this, they don't deserve to be praised just for trying
I don't want to rain on anybody's parade here because I love
everything I've heard of the new album so far (aside from 'Yes'
) and I am 80% sure this will be their finest album yet and I can easily understand why everyone is really positive about what we've heard of Viva La Vida
so far but...can we be serious...
'Yes'. Is. A. Bad. Song.
