I've always thought of Blue Ocean Floor as a blatant How to Dress Well rip...

Revelatory because it is a Coldplay album about something, with a human and personal theme. The past few albums had crazy theatrical themes (love as a superhero, love during a revolution, whatever), but nothing as relatable as this.

If Bourdain has weighed in on it, the case is closed.

Should we begin the argument of: "Is Ceremony a Joy Division song?".

I feel like the "slow pretty songs" are so satisfying and suspenseful, that it's only natural that the the more "grating" and quick songs aren't so pleasing. I totally agree with the point, but I think with time, I'll find that they're worth their 2 minutes + slots on the album.

Poison Oak, Lime Tree, Southern State, and I Believe In Symmetry. But that's just me...good list.

Did anyone draw weirdly immediate Elton John vibes from Chloroform? Anyways, I think this album is great. And I truly don't see why critics should pan it in anyway other than saying it wasn't very ambitious. Is a good album's lack of ambition a reason to call it anything less than good? Not to me. Just because Cohen (predicting he'll get the review) is going to call it a step backwards and give it a 7.5, I'll still regard it as one of 2013's best albums and be confused as to why p4k yuppies don't agree.

Yeah, no matter how obvious or cliche it may be to say so, Ceremony is the best New Order track. The argument if it's a Joy Division or New Order song aside..
