Of course, criticising Coldplay in this day and age is like trying to stop a runaway juggernaut with a damp sponge, but only a churl would deny that they do this kind of thing to the very highest standard. On its own terms, ‘Fix You’ is lovely, with its ecclesiastical organ and Martin’s pained vocals articulating with great exactness the ceaseless turmoil of a man who is schtupping a thin, mad actress. More subtle and hymnal than their usual quiet-LOUD dynamic trick, and really rather charming.
