Magic is literally the most beautiful song on the planet of earth. How can you not like it? That is not even understandable to me. Paradise is also an amazing song. I find myself relating to it all the time. But seriously, don't insult Coldplay by hating on one of their best songs ever. (And you are totally wrong, the other songs are the ones that don't even come close to Magic).

As part of an insightful set of reviews, I'm reviewing Ghost Stories next

Always In My Head- a relaxing and ambient opener with use of O. lyrics are deeply soothing and everything fits together perfectly. one of their best

Magic- another ambient and relaxing song, but with themes of getting over something or someone. Jonny's guitar is like an angel and the bass line is great, sauna music or when you're feeling down listen to this

Ink- not much of a fan of the track much now, but it's ink pot like beat is very Minecraft sounding. dunno why I thought of that, but it just seems like it fits in a TV show or video game. takes you on an adventure as well, which is cool

True Love- really beautiful little song, visuals live are amazing, they should be proud of this

Midnight- one of the best songs Coldplay have ever made. it has elements inspired by Radiohead's Kid A and Jon Hopkins' work, and the cold and dark lyrics mix well with the soothing but chilling Nine Inch Nails like-ambience. an entire album of this would get a solid 10

Another's Arms- bland and reminds me of a less creepy We Suck Young Blood, beat is off, it doesn't belong here

Oceans- chill out acoustic song. best listen to night when it's raining or you're by the sea

A Sky Full Of Stars- the hit this album wanted. enjoy it quite a bit beside it's pop/EDM beats and dance grooves which still don't belong here

O- makes you want to fly, gorgeous song and quite a masterpiece, like its build up ending as well, used in nearly all my playlists

 

Ghost Story- why isn't this on the album? creepy, chilling ending and soothing, acoustic main song.

All Your Friends- tearjerker, really depressing but really means a lot, one of their best B Sides

O (Reprise)- another one that ends a lot of my playlists, really ambient and hopeful look at the world. beautiful.

 

9.5/10 2nd best album of the 2010's imo.

Another's Arms has really grown on me. There was a time when I really didn't like it because I thought it was overproduced, but something about Johnny's guitar playing in the latter half of the song is so beautiful. And something about those synths and the sampled female voice just give the song a sort of ghostly vibe that fits so well in the context of the album.
