Heads Up to Coldplay Fanatics With Record Players

I know that Coldplay get a lot of flack from the blogging community in general. I, for one, don't see where all that indie hate comes from. I'm not saying they're breaking any musical barriers, but they write songs that suit their style and the arena's they play in, and I think they're honest about it. If you're not a fan of the music, I can understand. But, aside from that, what is there really to hate? Either way, they've got a new album coming out (with an admittedly questionable title: Viva La Vida and All His Friends), and for those that own a record player and just can't wait for the first taste, the UK music mag NME will be attaching a free vinyl to its May issue. The vinyl will include "Violet Hill" (which will appear on the forthcoming album) and "A Spell A Rebel Yell" (which will not appear on the forthcoming album). For those that don't subscribe, most local Barnes & Nobles sell the mag.
