When the single was first released I was surprised, but I found it well. As soon as Paradise was released I started listening to the new singles daily, and Mylo Xyloto had become a thrilling album.
A user on YouTube quoted:
"Coldplay are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."
This is correct. Every album of Coldplay has been different from the other. When X&Y was released it brought a very different style, and it turned out great. Coldplay's next album will most likely be different from the past too. If you cannot accept Coldplay to become different, then you are not a real fan. You cannot expect someone to always do the exact same year after year.
I found "I go to Rio" very entertaining. I have a theory that this bright, nice mood that the this song gave the basic concept of Mylo Xyloto. You go Peter Allen!
^AMEN!!I absolutely love it. I really can't stand people who seem to live in the past. Get over it, bands change, it's Coldplay. They change with pretty much every new album. Hey, it's not their best song, but I still love it.
When I listen to music, I look for bands that can write songs that I don't think I'd be capable of writing if I put 100% of my effort into it. I want to hear bridges and choruses that make me think, "wow, I never thought of that... these are professionals".
I could have written this song. No problem.
Maybe my opinion doesnt matter or whatever, but you guys just need to chill out.
Theres a pattern here, people who love this album say things like "Musicians change sound, and they are still Coldplay!" or "You cant determine a song with just the lyrics!" and my favorite "If you dont like everything Coldplay has done you are not a true fan!"
And the people who hate this album says things like;
"I really don´t like how they needed to get Rihanna or trying to make popular music!"
"the fucking lyrics suck ass every teardrop is a waterfall WTF" or "I really miss the music they used to do.. why cant they just be Parachutes forever?"
All of these opinions are wrong.
All of these opinions are also, true. You know why? Because they are opinions. You cant determine wether one is true or false. Unless its proved with a fact or something. When it comes to music, some people base it on lyrics, some on the beat, some if its a happy song, if its a sad song, if it has feelings, if its expirimental enough, if its mainstream, if its underground to see if they like it or think its good. You cant judge someone if they like it or they if they hate it.
Personally, I dont like it. I dont like this direction, but what if they make 2 bad albums and then maybe after that you like the next 3 or maybe the next 5? What if this is a downfall but just for a couple of albums? Every band had their bad years but maybe they might pull through. Maybe you need to just not focus so much on a band you liked for a long time and just wait till they get an album out that reaches your attention. Im getting sick of these threads that are saying that its the best album of all time instead of "Its my alltime favorite" no! its "THIS IS THE BEST ALBUM YET!" and people who say that they hate the new album.. or fuck they dont even say that, they just name the damn title "COLDPLAY: GREATEST DOWNFALL IN THE HISTORY OF MUSIC" Do you not know how exagerated that sounds? Sure I probably joke around and say that this album sucks, but I know as long as there one person that likes this album in the world I cant say that its shit, but at the end its just my opinion, even if I feel highly strong about it.
.. but actually all of this Im saying is an opinion.. so its all a contradiction. Simply dont be an exagerated asshole.
