Coldplay Releases Free Live Record

Despite not making its way into our top records of the year, we have to admit that Coldplay delivered more than we expected with last year's Viva La Vida. The record was a significant upgrade from X and Y, and more importantly gave us faith that the band still has some creative juice left in the old noggin.

Now the band has gone and released a live record sourced from the Viva La Vida tour, and released it for free over the web. Entitled Left Right Left Right Left, the album is up and ready for download as we speak. Granted, it's only nine tracks, but you can't really argue with a free release that's intended as a thank you to the fans. What's more, it's nice to hear the Eno-clean of the studio jostled a bit by Chris Martin's notorious live performance.

Head here to grab the album, for the price of your email address.
