Coldplay's Chris Martin may have a regrettable sense of humour when it comes to early morning chatshows and joking about the title of their latest album Mylo Xyloto, but thankfully and rightfully that's where the criticism stops. It may be a fact that people from different parts of the world might struggle with the record's pronunciation, but should they really care when it contains gems like new single 'Charlie Brown'?
"I stole a key and took a car downtown where the lost boys meet/ I took a car downtown and took what they offered me to set me free," Martin confesses over a foot-stomping beat and tapping guitar strums, before the chorus charges head-first into a blissful folk-pop hook of anthemic proportions. 'Charlie Brown' may be Coldplay's most youthful sounding cut to date, but it's their well-worn ear for a stellar riff that's the main attraction here.
