from: The Boise Weekly

In the case of Viva La Vida, track after track of overproduced anthems drip with all the sincerity of a Hollywood air kiss. What’s worse, the album’s lyrics, if read on their own, possess the depth of a sixth-grade girl’s first attempt at poetry. The opening lines of song “42,” for example, find Martin proclaiming, “Those who are dead are not dead / They’re just living in my head.” Well, it does rhyme.
