Yesterday Coldplay made their "LeftRightLeftRighLeft" album available for download for free (still is here), 9 tracks of live versions of some of their best. So a big thank you to them, for there may or may not be marketing reasons behind it, but it undoubtedly is a very generous gift from them to their fans.
And a fantastic album too, it really captures the energy of their live act in a surprising way. If there's something Chris Martin can't be accused of is of not giving it all live, even during their most grueling tours. Saw them in their second Philly performance last year, didn't seem in "automatic mode" at all.
Specially outstanding "Viva la vida", love that song (still they could have done without the pre-recorded chorus for the live thing).
The cd cover: a paper butterfly confetti like those they shower the audience with during their live performances (I kept one, wonder where it is!).
PS March'10: found them!, here:
