Welcome back ! Ownership is still the same (Stephen), but the forum did a major upgrade that allows better social media integration and is now also for the first time ever entirely self-hosted  I

I've been listening to A Rush Of Blood To The Head and its B-sides quite a lot lately. I'm really hoping we get a cool 20th anniversary deluxe re-release in 2022. They might not do this if they end up

I've come back after a few months and the forum has changed yet again 😃 I'm struggling to figure out what's what/who's who! Can my dear lovely Oldplayers please enlighten me as to what's been going on

I'm a bit nervous about LP8. I was hoping the MX-AHFOD pop thing was just a phase, but maybe not? Maybe this is just who they'll be going forward. Would be a big shame if that's the case.

 

Unrelated note, did a HQ version of the acoustic Lovers in Japan ever surface? It's one of my favourite recordings from the band, but the version I've got sounds like it was recorded underwater :/

If I'm not mistaken, LiJ only existed on iTunes and whichever online stream services and was available for the ones who pre-ordered the album, so, surely, no acoutic versions because it wasn't released physically or available for some FLAC streaming services because, yeah, that was 2008, what do we want lol But that version sounds so heavenly good... Wish we had a really HQ version of it, ears would be truly blessed :heart:

 

LOL Guys, that version actually got released on a charity album on iTunes Canada. I have the track on M4A straight from iTunes if you want it...

Trying not to get too excited as we've only heard 20% of the LP (and as there are still some flaws of modern Coldplay/Chris writing and vocals here and there), but this is probably the best start to a new era for a long while.

 

Really hoping I can go back to this thread in 15 days to tell once and for all that Everyday Life is the best Coldplay work since Viva.

 

Guess what...

Better than Viva, Fuck it’s better than X&Y.

 

Best Coldplay LP since AROBTTH anyone?

 

No, I have to disagree. But I'm happy for you that you like it.

 

I think Coldplay will always suffer from their first four releases anyway, even if EL turns out to be a great album. VLV was so good imo that it would now need a masterpiece to be able to equal it or at least get close.

 

Still too early to rank it for me, but EL is definitely closer to the first four albums than MX/GS/AHFOD. It is clearly a step forward. I think it has some modern Coldplay flaws and fillers that won't make me like it as much as the first four (minus X&Y maybe) overtime. At least they go somewhere with this album, so we can be happy in the end. EL has some bangers that could even be better if they were played live.

Haven't listened to the album yet but these early reactions are really encouraging. Especially those from the folks who frequent this thread. Sounds like we're getting Viva Pt. 2 after all... and Arabesque + that snippet of Guns weren't just a fluke.

Huh? Was the whole Everyday Life album leaked already? Or are you guys just speculating?

For sure !

Although have to say Guns was a bit of a letdown for me - great guitar and great verses but the chorus sounds so demo-y and unfinished...

ahhh I like the rawness, I think it fits with the anger in the lyrics and the way he sings them. but I see where you're coming from

I'm finally writing on this forum after a several years break! I haven't listened to the album yet, so I would just ask one questions to the Oldplayers who did:

Are Coldplay really back or is it just some kind of trick?

 

They're back, kinda...

They’re definitely back. This album and the last 3 are like night and day.

 

Well, for me this album feels great but lacks something... definitely needs to grow more on me. So far, TiT, Daddy, WINAF, Cry x3 and EL are the ones I like the most.
