So it sounds like Parr Street Studios, where a lot of Parachutes and AROBTTH were recorded, will be demolished soon🙁

I’m so happy that I was able to visit them a few years ago..I remember Jonny talking fondly about the studios on Storytellers in 2005 and how they helped the band to clear their minds after recording in bigger cities and improve the records that we all love.

I can’t remember who asked for this or which thread it was now, but somebody asked a few months ago for this video from Rhythm Studios back in 2017 where Will does a ‘masterclass’ with Miller and Dan Green explaining how the live shows work with all the backing tracks.
 

I randomly stumbled on it on the internet just now..so this thread is clearly the best place to put it xD
 

So whoever you are, if you’re still out there, here it is...

Sorry that the video and audio isn’t great, I think there was originally a better quality version on YT but it was deleted a while ago, so that’s the best that we’ve got. I’m very happy that it’s come in useful for someone! 😁

That's okay, just having it in some form is good enough! I do think the better quality verson was taken down due to copyright, but this will work for now 😀

Posting here because it felt truly random today. Tho I usually rank it as my least favorite Coldplay album, I just listened to AHFOD and it slaps. Heading into the album in 2015 I had some head canon about Coldplay doing this big dance album and was ultimately disappointed when it ended up being a mixture of lots of genres and overall tones. Sometimes it takes a lot of separation, and a new album (EL), to go back and fully appreciate an album era. I think a lot of critics and light fans will disregard the album of having weird tonal shifts and covering too many themes, but looking back at the last 4.5 years I find a lot of value in Chris' lyrics and have come to appreciate the interesting mixture of alt-rock and modern pop that Stargate brought to the album. Will's percussion is so good on this thing and its remarkable a band that started with low-fi indie rock could end up producing such lush and well produced songs 15 years later. 4 years ago I wouldn't have felt this way, but the nostalgia lenses are coming on team.

Interesting take, because I still feel AHFOD is not well produced. Nostalgia makes everything sound better, for me too, but the same things I found annoying back then I still find annoying now. To me it's the opposite, to my ears albums like AROBTTH (even Parachutes, in its intimate sound) have what i would call a great production. Ken Nelson was a genius.

Every time I listen to Kaleidoscope EP I think that's what AHFOD should have sounded like. What if would have sounded like if Bill Rahko, Dan Green and Rik Simpson aka The Dream Team had produced it instead of Stargate.

The French/German cultural chain 'Arte' is dedicating an evening to Coldplay. They are playing the film 'A Head Full Of Dreams' at the moment and after that they will show the film about the 'Mylo Xyloto' tour from 2012.

Haven't been here since probably EL came out. World events threw me into a pretty deep depression. I somehow forgot to listen to Coldplay through it. Honestly I've not listened to anything much.

I've had two very vivid dreams recently where I saw Chris Martin at concerts and he refused to let me meet him even though I wanted to very badly. Literally shook his head and turned away. I think that means listen to Coldplay again? Don't know how to interpret that. 😂

Same. Don't feel like I'm doing well these days. It's kinda helping listening to Coldplay again tho. There's so some sort of familiarity related to their music that it feels somehow like a relief.

I also dreamt of going to a Coldplay concert but for some reason it ended before I could get in the venue.

Oh yes, you are absolutely not alone!!! We love you and we support you :viva: :heart: Remember that life's tough, but you are definitely tougher than that! :whatever: 

Music's one of the main things that keeps me going to be honest, I can't imagine my life without music. I just can't....

Keep listening to Coldplay's music especially when you feel you could use it, it makes you feel better anyway! :earmuffs: Both of you, take care :smiley2:
