🚀COLDPLAY PREMIERE THEIR NEW SINGLE 'HIGHER POWER' FROM SPACE✨

LP7- "A Head Full Of Dreams"


Recommended Posts

I think its way too early to make assumptions about LP7 as well. The negativity and pessimism is unnecessary. I do however believe we can criticize the band's decision to work with Rihanna again. We even have the right to be outraged by it if it turns out to be true.

 

If you're the type of person who worships these people and attacks anyone who criticizes the band with militant aggression you really need to broaden your mind.

The fact is that people here dont know how to critize, but know how to hate

 

you are hating on rihanna, you are not criticizing her, there's a difference

 

a critic: i think rihanna is good at what she does, seeing how successful she is, but i dont like her voice

another critic: i don't think rihanna's voice and imagine suits coldplay so i dont think a collab with her is a great idea

 

what u guys are doing here: rihanna???? that slut??? she cant even sing!!! i hate coldplay!!1!!!11!!!

Guys, there are other bands in the world and they are not named Coldplay, it's not like you're going to stop listening to music if LP7 sucks.

I don't mind criticism. I do mind harsh criticism that just kills the good mood in here. People are entitled to their opinions, but please express them nicely.

 

Personally I don't mind Coldplay having made Princess of China with Rihanna. Many of my friends like the song. I would like to see another artist collaborate with them though - would be more interesting with something new.

I agree. I don't have anything against POC. In fact, it works well with the rest of the song in MX. Rihanna has a unique and powerful voice as well. If Chris and the band will include another song on LP7 with her that will be okay. But like you said, it would be more interesting if they collaborate with someone else because we already heard a Coldplay song with Rihanna in it.

I agree with the bolded parts. I do not understand nor agree with how anyone can legitimately criticize Coldplay for working with Rihanna. I don't believe I heard one legitimate reason against it. The gist of what I read so far is bitching about how they dont like Rihanna's music or PoC and somehow this justifies everything they say. News flash: you don't speak for everyone. Some people actually like Rihanna, some people actually like PoC, some people actually don't mind pop music. Some people are actually more tolerant.

 

I'm all for criticizing the band. I'm pretty vocal myself on things like their terrible MVs. But I tend to give a bit more reasoning in my opinions than what's being displayed in this thread. And at the end of the day, ppl are FREE to like whatever they want. It isn't your or my or anyone's job to change ppl's opinions.

I like that track. I can't quite see the name on the album cover who is it? [emoji165] Thanks!

See, I didn't like Poc much either but not because of Rihanna. Here if we get another song with this particular collab I wouldn't mind. It would be interesting to see what direction coldplay takes.

Remember, coldplay doesn't make the same album twice. Do whatever anybody says I don't care, cause I am looking forward to it..

 

I think it would be a complete album with something in it for everyone[emoji3] so no need to get all judgemental just yet [emoji5]

Let's assume for a second that your opinions and analysis are correct (which they aren't). So if Coldplay don't play the music you like anymore and you're sooo sure of yourself and your future-seeing ways, why are you still here? You're free to do as you wish obviously, but I know I personally wouldn't waste my time in a community that enjoys something that I don't like.

 

Either you're trolling or stupid, and I was genuinely curious as to which one it is.

 

Oh don't be so pathetic. They can do other things but collaborating with Rihanna AGAIN when there are so many great great artists out there is beyond insipid. Unlike you, my standards go a bit higher.

Edit: Let's just hope it's what Coldplay are happy with...[emoji111]️

howyousawtheworld;5705065 -- We would be open minded if it were 30, 20 heck even 10 years ago but mainstream pop music has become an endless homogenised stream of same sounding shit of which the likes of that robot Rihanna and her management executives have been the bringers of. That Chris Martin licks his lips at these people is beyond worrying and confirms his demise as a serious songwriter. Then again it's not as if he's been hinting at it throughout the last two albums with some average melodies and some truly excruciating lyrics.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions. Having an opinion that is unpopular is not trolling. Calling someone stupid for having a different perspective is true trolling. Both of you should respect the fact that you both feel differently.

 

howyousawtheworld has valid points, though I don't agree entirely. I agree that top 40 pop music over the last few decades has been dominated by record labels in a struggling industry that use artists like products to produce easy, accessible and formulaic music. I personally believe much pop music is not very innovative as a result, (of course not all of it.) Coldplay has always defied pop conformity but stayed relevant. Unfortunately for some of our tastes, their last two eras have a few examples of tracks that follow some top 40 radio trends. While the eras have been nonetheless superb with a diverse mix of tracks, I share the fear that Coldplay will make an album of ASFOS', though they likely won't. We just don't want to see them sound more like mainstream artists.

 

At the same time, however, Jc90 is right. We are freaking out right now about something completely hypothetical and we are being way too severe with our criticisms when we don't have any real information yet. I don't want another Rihanna track either, but we don't even know if it is true, or more importantly, how it would sound. PoC was a hit, even if some of us didn't like it, and I even admit to kind of liking the song, other than the god awful lyricism.

 

So there is no need to panic, but also no need to bash someone who might have an opinion that appears negative. Coldplaying has always been civil and I love that fact. We have to accept a mix of negative and positive opinions and work out ideas together. This forum needn't be gleefully optimistic about everything our favorite band does, nor does it need to be overwhelmingly critical. Regardless, we are all anxious for a new album!

^ Totally agree.

 

Just to change the mood in here a bit here are a few artists that I dream about Coldplay collaborating with :): Peter Gabriel, U2, David Gilmour, Depeche Mode, Eleni Karaindrou, Muse, Noel Gallagher, Rob Swire, Fran Healy, Dave Grohl, Amy Lee and a few others.

a) I haven't heard this argument yet. I would have accepted this as opposed to all the 'Rihanna sux' comments.

 

b) At the same time, despite what perhaps we all previously thought, Coldplay can't just pick and choose who they want to collab with (see David Bowie). Apparently people aren't dying to collab with Coldplay.

 

This isn't a standards issue so you can get off your high horse. It's an issue with some having certain tastes and others not. Rihanna might not be your cup of tea, but to say shes inferior...there's just no way you can prove that, so stop waiving it around like its fact. Again I say, just because you don't like something, doesn't make it universally bad.

 

INCOMING OPINION: I would actually prefer to see a collab with someone like Noel Gallagher as opposed to Rihanna. Do I have my panties in a knot over it? No. Why? Because I know there are other fans out there with different tastes and perhaps they might like a Rihanna/Coldplay collaboration. Not everything the band do is gonna be molded to your every taste.

what is embarrassing to me is how close minded people on here are about pop music and how full of hate most people are

 

get that stick out of your assholes and get over it

 

You're right, I admit to liking pop music, I've talked about The Script on this forum before. I guess I was just worried about getting a Mylo Xyloto sequel. But I respect Coldplay for moving with the times, it's just like what Radiohead started doing about 14 years ago. And it was how I felt when I first heard Midnight.

 

BTW, the only gripe I had with PoC was that Chris Martin didn't get much of a part in it, but that was just because the song was originally meant for Rhianna and only Rhianna to sing it, but the band wanted to keep it. This new song was meant for the band, so I hope that Chris gets more of a part in it.
