Criticisms with the album?

Still don't get why Ghost story was not put on the album

 

EXACTLY, it was the album's title track.

Rolling Stone just ranked Ghost Stories at #48 on their top 50 best albums of 2014. I still don't understand why so many critics hated it. (By the way, U2's new album Songs of Innocence was #1 on that list).

 

I am super surprised Ghost Stories made a top 50 list this year! That is pretty cool! I never understood how sites rank best albums, I mean, I usually have 10 per year that I adore but I usually don't necessarily have a favorite. I like to look at these lists as "50 Great (Better than average) albums of 2014" If that makes sense.

 

hahaha but more surprised Songs of Innocence got #1. Rolling Stone was the only site all year to love that album. I personally didn't like it at all. Joey Ramone is good though, and the once Chris is on is really good too.

Haha, yeah. Not a lot of people really liked Songs of Innocence, mainly because they just didn't want it on their iPhones. I agree with you though, The Miracle and Iris are the two best songs on the album.

I can't agree with you enough. Ghost Story was brilliant, and most importantly, it was the TITLE TRACK! Parachutes had a song called Parachutes, AROBTTH had a song called AROBTTH X&Y had a song called X&Y (and a B-side beginning with the line X&Y), VLVODAAHF had not one but TWO title tracks (VLV and DAAHF), and Mylo Xyloto had a stupid filler track called Mylo Xyloto. This really breaks up the tradition of Coldplay always having a title track in each LP.

It simply doesnt fit in the tracklist.

The album flows great the way it is. So i understand there choice completely, i would have done the same.

 

Moving To Mars for example, also doesnt fit the tracklist of MX.
