I agree about Ink...but the rest isn't that bad. Midnight is a masterpiece, ASFOS is a clever piece of EDM pop, O is painfully beautiful.

That review made me sad and mad at the same time, IMO it is just so wrong in so many ways.

"nearly everything about the arrival Ghost Stories has seemed small: the nine-song tracklist, the spartan, deep-blue angel's-wings cover, the disappointing lack of costumes. The absence of grandiosity signaled to eager fans and sneering bystanders alike that, this time around, something might be a little off."


Isn't that the point of GS? To not be big and stadium-friendly as MX?

And I'm sorry but I hated those matching costumes so I'm glad they ditched it.

The review is overly negative for my taste, but I do think they have valid points and it is consistent with their other reviews. I agree that Coldplay is at their best when they are doing anthems and that the lyrics are even more cringeworthy than usual. That why I hope this is just a little sidestep for them and they'll return to what they are best at with their next album.

Hi guys... yesterday I saw Coldplay ghost stories TV special on sky. Today I downloaded it from torrent but in the video that I've downloaded there aren't all songs (midnight, o.... 4 example...) where I can found the complete TV special? Thanks

In my opinion, you can sense that this guy wanted to destroy the album from start. Not a very objective review...

That's harsh. If Radiohead came out with an album full of ambient noise they would give it a 9.
Oh wait they already did.
What ever Pitchfork says I do the opposite.
Snobs.
