Us Against the World (Live)
Label: Parlophone Records Limited
Come on, admit it: You like Coldplay and were probably just singing one of their songs in the shower. Don't be embarrassed; these guys are undeniably one of the biggest bands in the world, and on this set of select recordings from their Mylo Xyloto tour, they prove just why. "It's going to be a f*cking good one, boys!" yells Chris Martin. And from there, the set is stuffed with hits: "Yellow," "Viva La Vida," "Paradise" and "Clocks" are especially energized, while "Up in Flames" and "Fix You" are even more poignant in the live setting. Bonus: You get to hear Martin work on his French.
