Despite not exactly having set the bar especially high to begin with, even Chris Martin seems to have accepted that Coldplay lyrics have sunk from "they were all yellow" and could do with some improving:

"One thing we're working on is our lyrics. They're about to get brilliant.

"I don't want to go on about what we're about to do but we're about to get a lot better and part of that is lyrically."

That sounds exciting, doesn't it? We're taking this as a pledge that they're now going to pull out all the stops to ensure that in future, they'll never release any song with less than three-quartered arsed lyrics.

Chris, certainly, is excited:

"I can't sleep at the moment, cos we're working on new stuff."

That accounts for why Paltrow has wound up up the pole again.

Is it just me, or does this smack of bringing in outside "credibility" for the lyrics? a la Paul Simon working with Derek Walcott, or Tim Finn and whats-his-name Brock, or... Hawkwind and Michael Moorcock?

Why should we believe a man who can only articulate this improvement as "get brilliant"?
