As the 99 percent of songs comes from him, the rest of them, Guy, Johnny and Will, are like a session musicians, and unfortunately not the best ones. But they are nice guys and it is like it is. I think Guy Beryman cant believe his luck to be in one of the bigest bands in the world. I think he should sleep with Chris picture beneath his pilow and create some sort of ritual every night before he goes to sleep, to thank him for all the money he got.

I actually would love to see the other members make strong contributions lyrically. All they need is a rhyming dictionary to equal some of Chris' work...

 

it would've been interesting if the rest of the band wrote the lyrics to the new album without the help from Chris.

Well they aren't the best musicians in the world I'll give you that. But I think you underestimate them by calling them 'session musicians'. I think they all have their fair share of input in songs, which isn't always very obvious. We actually don't know how many of the songs are 'just' Chris' work and how many are largely influenced or created by the other members. And well I don't agree with you on the Guy part, Guy has made some really really great basslines (Violet Hill, Major Minus, Paradise, Daylight, Cemeteries of London, Magic and so on...) Guy just likes to remain in the background and I don't blame him for it. (Althoug I wouldn't mind a f*cking cool bass solo now and then haha) ;)

But Danger Mouse produced U2's latest album and it certainly wasn't their best but it wasn't bad and it wasn't rap or r&b. :thinking:

 

Assuming because x producer is involved the music must be y is a large assumption. I'm sure that just like musicians, producers want to expand their horizons as well. Many producers also even make their own albums.

 

If Miracles is any sign of what's to come, I think that's a good one :nod: At least compared to GS. I trust everyone who's not Chris to push back if they go in an awful direction.

Miracles isn't a bad song but Coldplay can do so much better than that.

Very good point. Forgot about that by the time the album was released. Signs of Danger Mouse producing it were almost non existent.

 

I think like in U2's case, Stargate won't have much if any say on the music structure and like someone said, they tend to overproduce tracks and over Coldplay's last few albums, there are more overproduced tracks than underproduced, so the effect won't be noticable.

That may be the case, however Rik confirmed that Stargate had loads of input on the album, which is a bit worrying. Maybe you're right but from what Rik said that might not be true.

^I am certain it is true coming from Rik, but that doesn't define what "input" is. I think GS is an example of an album that was overproduced but not from the likes of their producers, save Avicii. The contributions of Madeon, Timbaland, and others was VERY slight. Rik probably had more influence.

 

So Stargate's contribution could literally just be advice or maybe a single, minuscule sound in a song. We just don't know. Either way, I think we can expect even more producers on AHFOD that we aren't even considering. Only time will tell. At the very least we know Rik is there and probably Dan Green too, which is a good sign for oldplayers.

For GS it was mainly rik and paul epworth. For ahfod, i think it'll be split down the middle between rik and stargate with little cameos from other producers like dan green and madeon. I know that chris worked with madeon again on a song he probably added a sound effect like in O, so we could see his contribution again.

But srsly "No I don't, no I don't, no I don't, no I don't want anybody else but you. No I don't it's true" C'mon Chris.

 

Also didn't Will write the lyrics to Sweet Marianne? That song's not half bad. :dance:

That is true, we really do never know until we hear the full thing. You could be right about Stargate's contribution, it could be miniscule and Rik could be lying. But more likely than not Stargates' probably going to have more input than less. Depending on what "input" means, it could be a very decent album, or a terrible one. We don't really know what "input" means in this case but most likely it means production, advice, etc.

 

This is also his first time working with an actual band if I remember correctly so it might also be different this time around. But that doesn't add to his horrible track record really... Miracles turned out decent (but, Coldplay could have done better, but really it was just a movie soundtrack...)

I heard the rumour the album might come out next month if you type in A Head Full Of Dreams, and click on news it was published on Saturday.

 

Kpopstarz is far from a reliable source. Plus, all of their articles on the new album are just restating old news over and over again. It really pisses me off.

Exactly! I find it hilarious how kneejerk this website is.

Think of Ryan Tedder. He's the lead singer of OneRepublic, a pop songwriter, and a producer who just so happened to work on some of the recent U2 album like Danger Mouse did. For a guy who has written many generic pop hits for other artists, his work as a producer is not bad. The U2 songs that he produced sound nothing like those poppy songs.

Yeah, producers are going to definitely style their production in the sense of the band that they are working with.....(if the producers are knowledgeable ones)
