Ive been reading through a whole bunch of the rankings and Im amazed how much variety there is. I remember it being the same when viva came out, but in my opinion that album was 'stronger' as a whole - I can imagine any one song being someones favorite (regardless of whether you like the album as a whole). I feel different about AHFOD, but looking at these rankings, Im wrong, apparently.

 

That said, I don't really have a one through 11 ranking myself, but when listening I often end up skipping HFTW, AOAL (which is not a bad song actually, just not my thing), and up&up (which sounds like one of those youtube covers of a really, really good song).

up&up (which sounds like one of those youtube covers of a really, really good song).

I keep thinking about what exactly I don't like about the album version and why it doesn't get me emotionally. This description made me laugh and maybe hits the mark for me.

Parachutes? :eek: I'm assuming you highly rate Stargate's production of AHFOD too, more so than Brian Eno's on VLV. Would be interesting to know your thoughts as to why.

 

Viva has very clean production, don't misunderstand me. Parachutes and AROBTTH not that much. But as I said, they have weak links to me: Yes, We Never Change,Warning Sign, to name a few. I have never liked LIJ too. In the end I really love those albums, but I just prefer the strongness and quality of the 3 in the top (4 with GS).

I object against the use of 'weak links' instead of 'songs that don't to it for me', since the former makes it sound like fact.

 

also it sort of saddens my heart hearing We Never Change and yes being called a weak links :'(

1. A Head Full of Dreams (On repeat constantly)

2. Amazing Day (has grown on me profusely, amazing build-up)

3. Up&Up (A little long, but great closer)

4. Birds (surprise of a song)

5. Fun (has grown on me)

6. Army of One (great song)

7. Adventure of a Lifetime (great song but not as good as the others)

8. Everglow (liked it at first, now I see its mediocrity)

9. Hymn for The Weekend (I just am not feeling it)

10. X Marks The Spot (shouldn't exist, should stay hidden)

Interludes do not count for me with the others. They are great interludes though.

 

Albums:

1. Viva La Vida and Death and All His Friends (classic, got me into Coldplay)

2. Ghost Stories (out there, but extremely soothing and comprehensive, comes together so well)

3. Mylo Xyloto (a few duds, but very entertaining)

4. A Head Full of Dreams (a few duds (pretty bad ones), but comes together nicely and is very entertaining, companion piece to Ghost Stories)

5. A Rush of Blood to The Head (The Scientist, Clocks, etc. are amazing, but can be too melancholy for me)

6. Parachutes (Yeah........this is too melancholy, I can't find enjoyment here except for a few tracks)

7. X&Y (Speed of Sound (aka Clocks), In My Place, and Fix You are everything, but everything is, I'm sorry, bad, you can tell the production troubles)

 

My top 5 favorite songs:

1. Every Teardrop is A Waterfall (I just love this song so much, it's just so good, no regrets)

2. Viva La Vida (emotional, amazing lyrics, my jam)

3. Fix You (makes me cry)

4. The Scientist (so real, so emotional)

5. A Head Full of Dreams (I am shocked that this is even here, I just love this song so much, I never thought a AHFOD song would be here)

This is what I think:

 

1. Up&Up

2. Army of One

3. Adventure of a Lifetime

4. Fun

5. Hymn for the Weekend

6. AHFOD

7. Amazing Day

8. Birds

9. Colour Spectrum

10. X marks the Spot

 

There are a lot of mixed reviews for this album, but personally I think that overall it's a good effort from Coldplay. It's probably fair to say that the album is a lot more commercial than it's predecessor, due to there being more pop music.

Interestingly enough, your top 3 here was the exact same as my top 3 when I was first really getting into Coldplay and joining the forum.
