Album review: Coldplay’s new songs written with jilted pen

Our reasons for loving or loathing Coldplay often hover around the same culprits: their dearth of subtlety, their embrace of extremes. For better or turn-that-sap-down, they let it all hang out, hopeful (“Yellow,” “Viva La Vida”) and hopeless (“The Scientist,” “Princess of China”) and always so richly heart-sleeved it can make your molars hurt (“Don’t Let It Break Your Heart,” “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall”).
