    I'm really loving the track. It kinda feels like their older stuff, mostly A Rush Of Blood To The Head, but with a new twist. The guitar on the ending is incredible... Honestly, after MX (I proudly say this is my favorite Coldplay album) I wasn't expecting something this dark. Also loving the vocals, which are lower (?) if that's how you say it...

    Looking forward to their sixth album.

    One of the many reasons why I LOVE Mylo Xyloto is the massive scale of it's production. "Atlas" has a hauntingly awesome similarity to how Mylo Xyloto was produced, especially B-side "Moving to Mars", which is why I absolutely love this song and would immediately place it high on my list of favorite Coldplay songs! It's a great song, and a great way to fill the gap between Mylo Xyloto and the next album!

    EDIT: Dat Lyric Video is also freaking amazing on it's own! :crikey:

    Pretty neat tune. I wish it stayed low-key and haunting throughout instead of exploding for the chorus.

    Hmmm, didn't really explode. It was more of a little step-up from the verses (except for the final chorus). I liked it.

    I like this track! I bought Mylo Xyloto just to give it a try (and it was pretty damn cheap).. I honestly have to say that it left me unimpressed (Coldplay just isn't my kind of band, I guess), but I do enjoy this track! Makes me hopeful for their next album.

    I feel the same way. It isn't that they are a bad band, but I don't care enough to listen to their music again. It's a weird thing.

    I like "Atlas" a lot and I'll check out the new album when it's out.

    MX is my favourite album from Coldplay, and I have to say I'm impressed again.
    Great song.

    Yeah I think it would've been better if that didn't happen. Would've felt more intimate.

    As I said in another thread, it feels like their Living Things: a song that has the collective sounds of their five albums.

    Don't you dare make me go into detail with that :lol:

    I think in the perspective of the average Coldplay fan, a simple ballad would've been a bit disappointing for an album gap of 3-4 years!

    Beautiful! Coldplay is one of my favorite bands, and this sounds absolutely beautiful. Nice to hear something new out of them! I'll give a more in-depth review after I listen to it more, but for now, all I have to say is that it's beautiful.

    Gets better with every listen. Also, that may be the most beautiful lyric video I've seen!

    Pretty big Coldplay fan but don't really care for this tune. Feels like a step backwards.

    Well, I can kind of connect it to the events and themes in "Catching Fire" so that's good

    Same here.

    PS During the Mylo Xyloto tour I decided to stalk the Coldplaying forums and I saw you were a pretty active member there. :p

    I just recently joined there. It's pretty unorganised and it confuses me with all the colors/double or triple posts being a normal thing.
