50 Favorite Albums: 29

Coldplay has been viewed throughout the oughts as one of the great bands of the new generation and, potentially, the heir to the legacy of U2. But it was their album that could be shortened to, simply, Viva La Vida that proved their status as one of the greatest bands that ever was or is. Off of this collection of tracks came Viva La Vida, the magnum opus of Coldplay that skyrocketed to the top of the charts and was dubbed Best Song at the 2009 Grammy Awards. It is an anthem for the ages and it was great to finally see Chris Martin conquer the world. Fitting cover art for that.
