Coldplay Conundrum

So I’m thoroughly embarrassed to admit it, especially publicly, but I like a few of the new Coldplay tracks on their new album. Their sound isn’t really my thing, but they have some more edgy, upbeat and interesting production on songs like Viva La Vida (my current fave song) and Violet Hill from the new album.

But when I went to their website, there was no music! Oh, except for a free song that was so poor, it was a slap in my face. NO MUSIC ON A BAND WEBSITE?? How does this kind of thing happen? Maybe it was there and I just didn’t see it? That is just as bad.

Note to major labels, if your going to jump on the ‘free song’ bandwagon, if you offer a lousy track, it is like the 30 second preview, it’s just a slap in the music fans face!

But eliminating the entire music section from an artist website? That is beyond belief.

You know the only place online you can hear more than one full length song from the new Coldplay album? ‘Illegal download’ torrent sites.

But since they offer non DRM tracks on iTunes, perhaps I will get a few songs from there… Maybe.

    That’s funny, I like a couple of the new songs as well, and I’m not really all that into them! It’s also funny that there’s no music on the website, but guess what… you can listen to the full length song Violet Hill on their MySpace, no downloads of course. 😀

    I’ll have to check out the new album. I saw them at GM Place a couple years ago and I almost fell asleep. What a boring show.

    I would love to see more major label artists giving up songs for free…
