Yeah I think starting with Atlas they have made a new trend of "the song that teases you but never explodes" hehe I think it´s ok for some songs on the album. If all of them were like this though I would definitely feel "unsatisfied" , but who knows...they have a way of weaving the melody in such a way that the whole song becomes pleasurable, without the need for a climax (yes ok this is starting to sound pervy so I´ll stop LOL)but at the end of the video I expected some some guitar, bass and drums, to lift it up a little, so that's a little disappointing... :')
That doesn't sound to promising and I hope what you're saying isn't true. Because that magic "lift" in Coldplay songs is for me the one unique thing that makes Coldplay stand-out the most compared to other bands. But as you said, all songs doesn't need that "thing", but some songs really do and with this song it feels like the band is teasing us to wait for that "lift" when the guitar, drums etc. are kicking in. (Sorry if I'm not very good at expressing myself with musical terms for you all to understand but I hope you get a grip on what I'm trying to say )Yeah I think starting with Atlas they have made a new trend of "the song that teases you but never explodes" hehe I think it´s ok for some songs on the album.
