Prospekts March - Parlophone 2008

Tracks: 1. Life in Technicolor II / 2. Postcards From Far Away / 3. Glass of Water / 4. Rainy Day / 5. Prospekt's March / 6. Lost / 7. Lovers in Japan / 8. Now My Feet Won't Touch the Ground


This Ep is composed mainly of outtakes from Cold plays "Viva la Vida" album, so you might expect that the level would be somewhat lesser than the “motheralbum”. In my opinion this is not the case. Apart from the rather short playing time, the EP actually works well as a small album.

This, of course, is due to the fact that the EP offers a handful of very fine songs. Not the least vocal version of "Life in Technicolor" is a highlight. "Glass of Water" and "Rainy Day" are both fine compositions that easily could have been used on the "Viva" album. The acoustic closing number "Now My Feet Will not Touch the Ground" is a perfect conclusion to a fine release. If you, as I do, enjoy "Till Kingdom Come" from “X&Y” "Now My Feet Will not Touch the Ground" will be a safe hit.
