Reviews

In the article by Q Magazine published on 10th October 2011 entitled "First Impressions of... Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto"[2] they wrote: "The title track of Coldplay's fourth album is the 40-second soundscape piece that the band began their Glastonbury headline slot with - not to be confused with the Back To The Future theme tune that blared out as they walked on. The instrumentation is pure Eno, the producer's imprint all over the cascading glockenspiels and washed-out guitar lines as the song bleeds into Hurts Like Heaven."' On the show 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks' It was stated as a fact that chris martin had actually written this song whilst in a 'wendy' dolls house.

The Oracle on Mylo Xyloto

Q. Hi Oracle,
I was wondering if the song played before Hurts Like Heaven during the festival circuit is actually called Mylo Xyloto and was just shortened to MX to avoid spoiling the title of LP5 before the title was officially announced. Thanks!
The Oracle replies:
Ta-da! I wondered when someone would pick up on that after what I had said about it in a couple of answers.
MX did indeed mean Mylo Xyloto but at the festivals, as I did mention, it wasn't a full song, just a prelude/introduction to Hurts Like Heaven.
