    Seems cool, even though I didn't dig the album. I like when bands "reimagine" their albums and come up with things like this.

    Album was a total dud. "Mylo Xyloto", however, THAT album would be awesome to hear in 5.1 surround sound

    That's awesome. I'm deaf in one ear. Like it matters for this dud of an album.

    I really enjoyed MX. It seems unappreciated

    I would love this for "Viva La Vida" or "Ghost Stories." But this album - it can get out.

    So, is this album hands down the worst Coldplay album? I didn't care for it much, but I wasn't sure if it was just me.

    I'm a big fan of this album so I'm interested in this.

    Can you make just any album 5.1 surround sound? Like making a movie 3D in post-production? Or do you have to take certain steps during the recording process to enable an album to be 5.1? Could Coldplay release a 5.1 Mylo Xyloto album?

    I do not exist.

    Intrigued by the widespread hate for this album. I didn't enjoy it too much upon release but after seeing them in June the songs grew on me a lot. They were so much better live. Still, nowhere near the level of other albums they've recorded.

    It's definitely my least favorite.
