Death and All His Friends

The latter half of Coldplay's new album title provides the closer for the album, and our featured song for today: Death and All His Friends. Personally, my favorite track.

The song starts very soft, with some gentle chords and a crooning lead singer, a little bubbly guitar here and there... and then basically EXPLODES into this crazy guitar and synth and everything melody, and drives on into this really cool synth part... and then fades away as quickly as it started, into a twinkling end, leaving you (or at least me) wondering what the heck just happened.

There's also a bonus, at the end: A hidden track, called The Escapist. I'll leave y'all to here it for yourselves.
