Interviewers don't ask questions that the diehard fans like us want to hear answered (like, I don't know, maybe questions about the actual music they create?). It pisses me off when interviewers ask about personal lives. I couldn't give 2 sh*ts about Gwyneth Paltrow.Crazy we are already a few months away from AHFOD's 2nd Birthday.
I feel like I have already consumed every review, interview, article, etc of the album, but still feel like we are missing a track-by-track breakdown? With (almost) every other album I feel like we got an idea of what they were going for on each track, but I feel like they have hardly commented on AHFOD, Birds, Kaleidoscope, Fun, Army of One, Amazing Day? And for most the KEP tracks as well....
Anybody have some piece of media that I missed that gets more into it?

Zane Lowe's interview with Chris is the best interview. Both times with Howard Stern were great too, for the most part.
I also really like the interviews when they come into their studio, or when they have them reflect on old albums.
If I had 20 minutes with the band, like you said, I would ask about each song on the album, or how Chris wrote the song "Birds" or whatever, or their specific feelings a decade later on X&Y and each track on it. But the general public doesn't care about that. They care about how Beyonce is on the new album, or how Chris is dealing with his divorce.
And I feel like I've watched/read every interview available for the entirety of the band's career, and I don't ever hear anything about the rest of the band's writing, like how Jonny comes up with his excellent lead guitar lines and riffs.
We actually do know a little bit about the making of X Marks The Spot:I would like to know Chris's explanation on XMTS
lol this is similar to when Noel said 'If Thom Yorke shit into a lightbulb, it'd still get a 10/10'I think Chris Martin could shit on a plate and you all would like it.
Nah I'm just kidding, to each their own. But Eno would never let that tune fly while he's in the studio.
True words. Kind of a sad day today. It has been an amazing ride.Copy/paste from LP8 Thread:
I'm feeling very nostalgic today. The AHFOD Era was my first era from beginning to end. I got into the band at the end of 2014, and they truly have changed my life. This era gave me my first concert and so many other great memories!
I still remember that day in September, 2015 when pictures of the band in India surfaced. I couldn't stop shaking the whole day. The buildup to the album was unreal, and I remember like it was yesterday waking up at 1 AM to hear AOAL's release on the radio!
I am so grateful to be here on Coldplaying and to have met other Coldplayers through here and just by chance in real life.
Looking back, this era was one of great change in my life, and I am so happy the soundtrack was that of AHFOD and Coldplay.
I can't wait to see what Coldplay has in store for us in the future and in LP8! Even though the era is over, always remember to Believe in Love!
