Coldplay – Talk – Single Review

by Lucie

It’s hard not to be impressed by this single, although I’m rather embarrassed to admit it. ‘Talk’ isn’t a whiny ballad, which is refreshing in itself, and it even begins with quite a nice little guitar intro. The lyrics are, as always, a bit too arty and pretentious for a pleb like me to appreciate, but it seems they’ve got back to their much more tolerable ‘Parachute’ days to produce a light, dare I say it, likeable song that’s reminiscent of the time when Chris Martin wasn’t such a git. Hard to remember, I know.
