Reign of Love
i don't hate Princess of China. just say: the synths is terrible.@ov3la and @i ran away,can you guys explain why you hate a.s.f.o.s? I get that you hate midnight-i hate it too. But a.s.f.o.s? I liked the video-even though the concept was not original...
@ov3la,also why would u hate princess of china? granted it's a deviation from the coldplay norm,but i thought it had a surreal feel to it when i first heard it...
POC is [emoji37] but True Love is a beautiful song! What about the music video for life in technicolor 2? It's a little childish, it's clearly marketed towards children with its puppetry. [emoji23]I wouldn't say there are Coldplay songs I "hate" so to speak, Just ones I don't have much interest in listening to.
Princess of China is one. It just doesn't appeal to me in any way. The synths sound like they were produced on Windows 97 and Rihanna :cry: It's not that I detest the song musically, it's just that it signifies everything about the pop direction Coldplay has taken in the last few albums and that saddens me.
Another one is True Love. Jonny's guitar solo is good but it's completely ruined by unnecessary synth sounds. The lyrics while personal to Chris, are a complete deviation to what we got before on previous records. The music video is also completely ridiculous and I believe this is where the majority of my ire for the song comes from. Very superficial, lazy and clearly marketed towards teenagers. You would never had such a video during ANY of the other eras.
@a2iel: i think the key to some coldplay songs is in the title...'death will never conquer','death and all his friends' e.t.c...here the keyword is 'death' so expect to be bored to death...
"Til kingdom come" is one song i partly like.The reason is,after i listen repeatedly to the more likeable coldplay songs,i hook up with it so i don't get constipated on the good songs. e.g after listening to amsterdam,ink,a message like 10 times...i then switch to 'til kingdom come'...
Based on what i've observed so far,I think Mylo Xyloto is the least liked Coldplay album.X&Y is a song I like because it's kind of bland and yet awesome in an uncanny way.I know it sounds paradoxical,but that's my honest assessment of it...Paradise. It's not that I can't stand it but I find it very 'meh'
Princess Of China, but just because I don't like Rihanna's voice
X&Y, never got that one
