Help Me, Tastemakers!

So, what's the currently acceptable position on Coldplay? I've listened to their new album, and I like about half of it, so I'm fully prepared to go whichever way the critical winds are blowing. Apparently the go-to analogy this week is to compare Viva la Vida to Radiohead's Kid A.

If nothing else, it's likely to be my second-favorite album to appropriate a 19th-century French painting for its cover art.
