📡 HIGHER POWER MUSIC VIDEO OUT JUNE 8 📡

Everglow


Recommended Posts

It sounds fantastic in high quality! It was probably my least favourite snippet too, mainly because of the everglow part. It won't be one of the standouts on the album I think but if that's one of the 'weaker' ones, the whole outlook for AHFOD is looking very good indeed :)

Absolute rubbish. I've long accepted their drastic change in sound and even tried to pretend it's not a Coldplay song from my very first listen, and it's still horrible. A drab song further ruined by the production and fake drums. 3/10.

 

Since people are calling it a "ballad" and just for the sake of comparison I'd recommend listening to Hello before and after this. That song has horrendously boring lyrics and yet still manages to be haunting, beautiful and gut-wrenching. All because of her techniques and the superb melody, instrumentation and production.

IMHO Hello is an average songs, and so the whole new album. I find it very repetitive and bland, except for "I Miss You" and "Remedy" tht are good but not that great. "21" was waaaay better and more versatile in terms of rhythm and style (think of "Rumour Has It" and "Rolling In The Deep" for example).

I'm not saying it to defend CP (in fact I'm one of the most critic users of CPing), I really think it.

Maybe the production is very clean, but the songs are not only production, they're also creativity and 25 hasn't got it that much.

I haven't even heard the song yet but I believe I'll share your opinion (because we had mostly the same opinion about the new songs) because of Coldplay's fondness of over production and these goddamn fake drums.

 

Its not that bad.... :(

You're more likely to see praise on social networks like Reddit than you are on an internet forum. Same thing happens with Sports too. Go to a team's forum and most it will be moaning. It's more to do with expectation than anything else and I guess fans who use forums are more likely to have higher expectations.

 

I was pleased Gwneyth's voice was very subtle, sounding much like a Coldplay only track. Hope that's the case for all of them apart from 'Fun' which is bound to be more of a duet.

Don't know if anyone's noticed this yet, but...

 

"Life is short as the falling of snow"

"So if you love someone you should let them know"

 

Doesn't that scream Violet Hill to you?

 

Even the chords are slightly similar

Anyone else feel the gut punch from this song? Coming from Chris' familiar voice it made my eyes moist... Had to curl up into a ball and hold myself for comfort. It is so bittersweet... Brought back feelings from Trouble but in a different way.

 

Sure, lyrics and production are uneven and cheesy in some places but that combination of emotional voice + warm piano lines + Jonny's signature 'soft wailing' guitar teasing out the emotion from the piano.. That's their chemistry right there! I really love the band when Jonny empathizes with Chris' turmoil on his guitar - it's like him throwing his arms around, giving him an all-encompassing hug and saying everything's gonna be alright when Chris is so emotionally exposed... It's one of the most beautiful things about this band!
