"This new edition of Coldplay's masterpiece Viva La Vida features the same 10 songs as the standard version, but it also includes a bonus DVD featuring a half-dozen music videos. The first is Violet Hill, which shows the snow and hills described in the song. The second is Viva La Vida, which won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year. The video focuses on the band members but it is also very colorful and creative. Next comes Lost!, which may or may not be a live performance (I can't tell). After Lost! is Lovers In Japan, my favorite song from VLV, which I suppose makes this video my favorite. It shows a variety of images, including the band members writing the lyrics on the screen and at one point the entire video starts spinning 360 degrees. The next video is Life In Technicolor II, which is from the Prospekt's March EP. It is a new version of an instrumental, which now has lyrics. The music video for this song presents the band members as marionettes in a library puppet show. The final video on the DVD is Strawberry Swing. This song is perhaps the most imaginative song on VLV, and its music video is even more imaginative. It's hard to describe but it basically shows a superhero. In conclusion, the band probably should have released the DVD in the same package as the Prospekt's March EP so that the fans wouldn't have to spend so much money, but both items are well worth that money. Thus, I highly recommend this new edition of Coldplay's Viva La Vida."
