If it weren’t enough that the leading British alt-rock band from the class of 2001 has begun making concept albums, their first such foray features a guest appearance by Rihanna herself. What could possibly go wrong? Well, for starters, Mylo Xyloto hangs relies a little too heavily on frontman Chris Martin's wispy falsetto. Even more surprising: The strongest portions seem to be heavily indebted to Phoenix.
