🪐CHECK OUT THE LATEST NEWS AND RUMOURS ON COLDPLAY'S UPCOMING ALBUM🪐

[2015-11-26] Chris Martin Interview with Zane Lowe (Beats 1)


Recommended Posts

Yeah, the thing I kinda learned is that whatever the band does, there will always be some backlash. But that goes for anything and everything. You're never gonna have everyone agree on everything. So, just kinda accept that inevitability and choose to be positive.

 

I appreciate the advice. :) Wise times. What'd you think of it?

Exceeded my expectations. I didn't think much of it when I heard the snippet (and kept the negative comments to myself). So when I heard it, I thought it was pretty good.

Same here. Definitely better than the snippet I thought. But I of course think people have the right to express negative opinions as that was me much of the GS era. :nod: We're all hard to please in our own way.

Haa right. But I almost feel outnumbered sometimes with the negativity. I thought I'd just be quiet and not add it.

Unique? I mean. :thinking: It's just him singing falsetto the whole song unnecessarily. It's too saccharine. There are plenty of "pop" artists who do that. Melodies? What If is just simple piano and then oooo's and a painful wall of sound. At least he's playing something a little more complex here. Fix You's jam at the end is unusual, I will say that. Still sounds bombastic though as much as I like Jonny's guitar.

 

Coldplay have never operated in a vacuum. And 2000's pop songs are rap and big synth choruses/EDM, not ballads. I know because many songs on the radio make my head want to explode. Piano ballads have been around and popular since the 70's at least. It's not a sudden, new trend.

 

If you want to talk about what was "popular" back in the early 2000's, there were plenty of bands that sounded like Coldplay. Keane, Muse, Travis, Doves, you name it. It's never been a question of them being crazy original (except during Viva) I'd say. It's just what your taste is and I like piano music. The band isn't new to piano-driven songs or ballads.

 

So you saying square one isn't unique?, or the chorus of x&y itself with loads of guitars. The space rock vibe from the album.. it was different, it has identity. White shadows isn't unique? Cmon.....I understand your point but those are really good melodies.. maybe not thaat unique as viva la vida album but it was very good. And wth falsetto everytime??? Say that to mylo, cos in x&y he does a good balance between the falsetto and the normal voice besides he screams a lot in x&y and was great screams. It was very original that album too. Of course you could relate to somethings but it stills like something different.

There is more than a little helping of Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me" in that piano at the beginning but I am digging how it is used. To my ears this is a total blue eyed country soul song. It's a beautiful old torch song really...

I was talking about What If and Fix You not being "unique". :) There are great songs on X&Y. A Message, Talk, Square One and Til Kingdom Come stick out to me. I think he uses too much/too intense falsetto on What If, that's what I meant. MX has a good vocal balance. Only high vocals I hear there are Paradise on the chorus, ETiAW and HLH. It is a good album and the space sounds are cool. I just think it was their least adventurous (not their worst though) but to each their own.

 

I have somewhat high hopes for AHFoD after hearing this. Quite a variance in sounds from one song to the next.

well exCUSE ME, I prefer to to listen to the new album with a completely non-spoiled ear and enjoy having so many new songs, instead of knowing every second song because snippets have been floating around and ruining the experience for me altogether, like back during Ghost Stories were only what felt like 3 songs were left unknown :|

Some people in this forum are so close minded about pop music and electronic sounds that it makes me scary.

 

Anyways....about the song, I dare to say Everglow is one of their best ballads since X&Y. It's way better than Amazing Day, which I thought was very average.
