Go Buy Viva La Vida, NOW!
I'm a big Coldplay fan in the first place, but their new album, Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends) is one of the best records that I have ever heard. It's about an hour long and I listened to it 10 times yesterday. I realize that sometimes, when someone you know is geeking out over something, it might make you hesitant to get into it. I mean, there's nothing worst than having high expectations not met.
So don't just listen to me you can check out a beaming review for the album here, or you can just buy it on Itunes, RIGHT NOW for only $7.99 and judge for yourself.
The album was produced by Brian Eno, who also had a heavy hand in the production of the U2 Album, The Joshua Tree (one of the other best albums of all time). Viva La Vida is a great companion piece.
