Hi, my name is Matt, I'm 19 y.o and I'm from Milan (Italy)
I'm a huge Coldplay fan (I have all the albums, including some EPs) and I also make covers of their songs at the piano.
In my DTD life, I'm a IT System Administrator and in my spare time I'm a photographer, videomaker and intermediate pianist.
Thanks for having me on this amazing forum!
If by "genuine" you mean doing the album the band wanted to do, of course it´s genuine, like everything they do since they got the status. And also of course the kind of sound they achieved it´s the one they were looking for or the one they agreed to go on with.
That doesn´t make it any good at all. And you can tour nowadays with any kind of album you do, doesn´t need to be stadiums and the music doesn´t need to be as basic and uninspired like most of the MOTS songs.
During Coldplay's shows at the Rose Bowl on 9/30 and 10/1, an organization called Support+Feed will be holding a Non-Perishable Plant-Based Food Drive, with all goods going to the amazingLos Angeles Regional Food Bank.Here are some ideas of what to bring: canned beans, corn, peas, green beans, and rice.
Rose Bowl ticket holders – help us help our neighbors by bringing something plant-based and non-perishable to donate. 1 in 4 Angelenos experience food insecurity, so whatever you can bring would be a big help. Thanks!
Just to finish this little rant here, I don't get why people say MOTS was not genuine either. The band mentioned being desperate to tour again after the pandemic and as a reflection of that we received stadium-ready, easy-to-remember songs. One can say the album is bad and all, but its sentiment was very much genuine.
Anyway, in case anyone was wondering, I talked with a guy who was in the meeting briefly on Twitter and the "high-pitched" vocals from Will are not like Angel Moon or anything, just him doing falsettos. I'm particularly excited for that one because I find his voice very pretty.
