Yeah it's just a bit disappointing that it's being referred to as a double album when it's really not. It's pretty much like X&Y, where there are two halves.

Ah well, We should have at least 9 more full songs.

 

Chris said in that interview that it's not a double album because there's enough songs to make it so, but because even while being shorter than some of their other releases, it's "well portioned, well divided".

 

I'm ok with that, we're basically getting a Coldplay album but just better divided to make it more cohesive

Yeah I like that, I just want more music lol. X&Y as an album is long, but I wouldn't mind having more songs from that era you know? I wish b-sides were still a thing.

Too bad there won't be a tour. :(

 

Doesn't mean they wouldn't perform the song in the next album's tour.

Typical Chris really. He likes to repeat lyrics.

 

Yep. Waiting for another 'feet don't touch the ground' reference.^^

B-sides are so great, from a era we had the album itself plus those additional songs as an extra. Love them so much

Time for another mandatory massive post.....

 

 

 

Eh, to each their own, I think many songs since Viva have reached and exceeded that level of ingenuity. EL IMO is great and my fav so far from the era but I wouldn't consider it a Fix You.

 

 

 

Now now, not to get too hyped. Remember Stargate's on at least one of the tracks. That being said all the other collabs are pointing to this being a really good album, then again there's nothing wrong with setting the bar low so you either aren't surprised it was bad or become pleasantly surprised.

 

 

 

YES! I'd really like to hear Coldplay experiment with different genres. It's highly unlikely considering they're seeming to be heading in a more old style jazzy fashion but a fusion of genres would be really cool to see.

 

 

 

I was thinking of doing it but I caved when SNL came on, I didn't just wanna turn it off after Orphans cause somebody was watching it with me and I didn't feel like disappointing them. Heck I wanted to try holding out entirely on this era and waiting till the album release proper to hear all the songs, but another of my favorite bands just released an album and I haven't heard a single song off it yet, so I guess I can already say I did that. Not the same experience as holding off throughout the hype though, I surely haven't had that experience yet! In hindsight I should have just held our, seeing as album closers are usually top notch, specially with Coldplay, and designed to be listened at the end of something ya know? Wouldn't be fair to just listen to it on their own for the first time, so I get where you're coming from, and I wish I woulda held out

 

 

 

I mean they're both slow and melancholic but EL is hopeful while AROBTTH definitely isn't, so other than the slow pace and general emotive vibe of the songs there's little in common with them. As another user on here said it's more similar to Amsterdam IMO (even with the emotive differences).

 

 

 

WTF?!!? It's so subtle I couldn't hear it! I'll try to remind myself to listen to it after even though I'll probably forget lol.

 

I know it's 2019 and Coldplay is a pop band that has long used auto tune even in small amounts but come on. They can do better than that if they're collabing with real talented musicians, then again CM's voice isn't the best nowadays so it's not really surprising, but still if they're looking for authenticity why wouldn't they just record the take till he did it right instead of fixing it with studio magic?

 

Then again Stargate's producing at least a single track (it seems like for now at least he's not producing the full album, I really hope that's not an unrevealed unwelcome secret of this whole process anyways. I'd highly doubt it considering all the other real musicians they've brought in, then again anything's possible since JC is on the same track, maybe Stargate's looking to get a little jazzy and become real artists themselves......? either way I would not want them producing the full album, hopefully that's not a hidden news that would disappoint us.)

 

 

 

Oh geez, as others have mentioned it's way too early to call, and I can see people overestimating and being disappointed like the past few albums. That being said I definitely wouldn't say it's better than M or AROBTTH. Never know though.

 

 

 

That's something the live version has on the album, I was really excited to hear Jonny's guitar shining live, and I can't believe I didn't realize it's usually less audible on the studio version than live, so I was half disappointed with that part specifically upon listening to the studio.

 

 

 

IDK man, with most of the lineup the rest of the tracks have I think this is gonna be fantastic (again, nothing wrong with being pessimistic to either be proven right or pleasantly surprised). But for the most part I think there's no reason to worry. Have you heard the shorter teases/snippets of some of the other songs yet?

 

 

 

That would really make sense considering it's released on Nov 22 and they say it's been "100 years in the making" (since 1919). Any link to the video?

 

 

 

I was gonna say that some people on hear must have had a crystal ball because some were speculating that was gonna happen, but then this guy clarified:

 

 

 

Highly likely you're right, but you still never know, they might be the next singles!

 

 

 

Bleh. Probably made it more poppy than necessary, although Orphans is still a good track, and Max Martin can produce some decent music. Just kind of sad to hear Coldplay's still been working with mainstream producers, when this was supposed to be more of an experimental record, which I'm still confident it will be..... again let's just hope it's not information we don't know about ye that more mainstream producers will be doing the rest of the songs either. But with songs like Arabesque and even the title track, I retain confidence that even with minimal pop influence it will be rather authentic (and tbh seeing what most of Max Martin's sound is like now I'm surprised Orphans didn't turn out too too poppy, it sounds like a legit indie pop/rock track. Then again maybe we now know where the "get drunk with my friends" lyrics came from. :triumph:

 

 

 

I wish there was, because it would have been great to just hear it unspoiled in the context of the album, but noooo. People would probably break it too much though and moderation I'd imagine is fairly difficult for stuff like that, then people would accuse them of being picky etc..... so I just think it wouldn't be a good idea all around, and I think discussing the overall vibe of the song doesn't do too much harm as an outside person who hasn't listened to it yet, as language only conveys a vague idea of what something subjectively sounds like, and the outside listener might have a completely different opinion (although, looking at other's opinions beforehand can skew first impressions so I personally try to avoid influential opinion as much as possible).

 

 

 

That's something I noticed with that video, his voice definitely didn't sound up to par, and I think he has kind of a quirky voice as it is, a tone that many people don't like. It half annoys me too cause it kinda sounds nasaly but it's not too too bad.

 

 

 

Not true Coldplay, but don't forget Pharrell Williams on E Lo.

 

 

 

Darn I noticed your count very close to this the other day and was planning to congratulate you! WOO!

 

 

 

Not the biggest of singles, fairly unlikely.

 

 

 

Remember, this isn't the first time we've been unpleasantly surprised by what seemed to be a large track count. I know they did sort of the opposite thing on VLV but, hey. Still, 16 tracks and a double album feels like it kind of deserves more, like 2 actual discs because under an hour of music can easily fit onto a single disc. so it wouldn't be a true "double album", just more in the sense of theme.

 

That's probably a good guess but I am hoping for a little more TBH. That would mean taking a hit at the other song's lengths though, and I'm hoping for at least 1 or 2 longer songs like Arabesque, but we just don't know. Kind of sad to see that this album isn't as long as it first seemed, but it's still a lot of material compared to most albums released recently. IMO I value every recording, long and complex or short and underdeveloped, so it'll still be interesting hearing CP take a slightly different approach to their recordings this time around.

 

-----------------------------

 

Something to note, even though I know this isn't fhe first time he's mentioned it this era:

 

3:00 of the interview a few posts above:

 

"it's not about money, it's not about awards, it's not about fame, it's not about critical success, it's not about rankings...." I am so very glad to hear this coming from them. Really comfirms that they've got something great cooked up for us in store, even if they've got a few pop influences in there. I'm sure whatever they give us it will be great, judging by what we've heard so far and the authentic nature of most of the collaborations of this era.

 

Something else he mentioned around the 5:00 mark is that he recorded memos in Buenos Aires, Jerusalem (ring a bell?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!..... sorry that was terrible) Italy, Paris (kind of stopped there lol). So that would mean at least 4 memos. I'm really hoping some of them are combined into one track, but assuming they're on their own separate tracks that means we have "only" 9 real songs left to hear (10 counting Flags). So, worst case scenario, even that is still better than something like GS for example where apparently people only hadn't listened to 2 tracks before the album officially released (wasn't an actual fan at the time) but still like that is kind of low total left, seeing as there might be another single or 2 released before the album.

 

Also never knew Will Champion was all the reason behind the no swearing in Coldplay lyrics before (whether that's just an excuse or not :joy: :joy: ) but if so I'm glad he kind of grew up around that!

 

Thanks :D

And I wouldn't be so negative about the voice memos. Doesn't mean 4 tracks will be full voice memos. Remember that both Arabesque and EL begin with a memo.

That’s it I’m not gonna listen to any song from this album again till the album release.

Basically, this song is the final confirmation that there is not one experimental side (presumed to be Sunrise) and one conventional side (Sunset). The songs and sounds are gonna be all over the place. Man, am I HYPED for this album right now.

Even more confused with how each side is gonna sound like. Doesn’t seem like that there’s gonna be a themed side.

 

But it’s interesting that more songs/previews have been released from the sunset side. Maybe another preview from sunrise?

Hmmm guess I'm not that excited for Guns after that preview, that's def a style of music I'm not into. But maybe the song has a change somewhere and it actually takes me by surprise.

Guns sounds amazing! Can’t wait to hear the full version, they’re really playing with their style on this album, seems like no one song will be the same

I think it’s going to be similar to strawberry swing - an acoustic start before the music kicks in.

Lol, sounds nothing like Strawberry Swing. It's more like Folk music which I don't enjoy much. I only like very few Mumfurd and Sons songs, and mostly the ones that sound not so folky from "Wilder Mind".. So maybe the song changes after this part, and not into a full Folk song, but feel like it will be a full Folk tune.. which may grow on me just cause it's Coldplay, we'll see.

No no. I don’t mean sounds like SS as in the genre. I meant the structure of the song - acoustic start, then the full band comes in later on.

This album is just full of surprises and Guns is no different.

This wouldn't have been included as a bonus track 10 years ago!

Everything was so polished from start to end but here you can see the message is more important than the medium so to speak....

it doesn't matter to the band if it's different sounding even if it's some folk song if it has a good message I think that is their message.

 

But surely Chris' Global Citizenship and his activity with them has HUGELY INFLUENCED this album.

Just as I "feared", this is shaping up to be a really political album, not that that's a bad thing per se, it's just that I don't really like the only mildly political song that the band has ever done (Twisted Logic) so I don't know if that's a good omen for me and this album.

 

(I really, reeeeally dug Orphans, Arabesque and Everyday Life, though)

I quite agree with you and this was the exact thought I had when I first heard Orphans. Not a huge fan of this song, but I am looking forward to the album release and Everyday Life is great. It stands to reason though that Global Citizen would have an influence on Chris's writing and music.

Violet Hill is also a political song imho, perhaps even more clearly than Twisted Logic. What do you think about it ?
