I'm wondering why AOAL was the first single and not AHFOD? AHFOD seems the much better choice, no?

 

Yes, thought that too.

As usual I try to actively listen to each of the lines and identify them individually (takes a few listens of course ), then eventually after I have found all / most of the lines, they all combine in my head when the music is played into a version that resembles "definitive"... That way none of their music gets boring. AOAL is just bursting with variations between the parts / lines... I'll have to post my musical highlights for this song in the AOAL thread sometime - it looks like a blissful surf between the lines of sound If you're looking to just relax / melt into the sound, it will be too "noisy" / boring as it's not immediately easy to untangle without some attention

 

I only scrutinize songs like this when I really like them, and try to find out why I like them so much. For Up&Up for example, I thought:

 

"Okay, it feels like we're already 5 minutes in and he's been singing the same thing for the entire time. Oh! A long guitar solo, nice!... wait, okay, yeah, already forgot the melody. Oh again, the same lyrics, but the choir is nic-OHMYGOD IT JUST LOOPS FOREVER, and then dies down, and drags itself on with the same repetitive pattern! ARRRGH"

 

 

Like, cut out the first half of the song, keep the nice intro, the nice middle, and cut the long ass choir repetitions in the end and reduce them to maybe 3.

At first I thought the stream was lagging because it all sounded the same to me, but it was just the song :|

Well anyways, I've been staying up all night, it's 8AM now, I think I'm gonna take a nap lol.

 

Have a nice discussion guys! I can't wait to hear the rest of the album, hopefully it'll manage to change my negative opinions!

LOL Batman, your avatar fits your opinions so perfectly :D

 

And how is good old Germany doing ? 8 am now - are you gonna stay up for the day or go to bed again, considering you had to wake at 5.30 ?

Out of the four, AOAL is by far the weakest imho. Amazing Day has grown a little bit on me too (I may actually like the studio version, who knows), and I am not quite sure about Up&Up yet (the electronic drumbeat really irritates me).

Have been looping and enjoying AHFOD for a few times now, though. I think for an upbeat, poppy song it's quite good and has some rock elements (sounds like a cross of HLH and DLIBYH).

My thoughts exactly.

They probably thought it was too U2'esque for their opening single...

The first single is usually a song that shows a different style from previous albums. That was the case with Violet Hill.

Does anyone else thinks AHFOD sounds (apart from U2) a bit like this:

I'll do a more thorough review tomorrow when I'm more rested

 

The show was amazing, the boys had so much energy and seemed so happy. I liked all the new songs and finally hearing sky full of stars was amazing! It was annoying that the girls in front of me were videoing the entire show making it hard for me to see at times. But the crowd for the most part were great. It was great to catch up with my friends and make some more memories. I feel like I love coldplay more and more each time I see them and I was grateful I got to attend this show!

 

I will leave you with my favorite picture that I took:
