So ... what can i say about this album that hasn't been already said ?

I don't want to think about ranking it or comparing it with other records because the identity of Everyday Life tells you not to do it. Watching Sunrise this morning, alone in my student bedroom, reminded me why i love this band.

 

This band came to me 8 years ago with the joy of Mylo Xyloto which helped me and still help me to keep smiling in the darkest moments.

The same year, i bought a keyboard to play their songs and from that moment, i began to compose my own songs. Everyday Life reminded me WHY i should thank them : they demystified an art which seemed to complex and inaccessible to me. They allowed me to think that one day, i could compose to. That everybody can. Not because their music is easy ... but because it is beautifully simple. Everything is in chords progression, everything is in how you want to express something and how sincere you are with your art. Coldplay made me understand that and even if their music can be complex too ( Arabesque, Trouble in Town ), it is just an evolution of a simple and pure form of art, the one from The Blue Room EP and from Parachutes. Man, they're so great ...

So we "forced" them to play Sparks. Why not forcing them to do more shows :laughing:

This album is tooooo good to only be played on 7 shows! #EverydayLifeTour2020

First of, the last album was dreadful. It made me realise we’d never truly get the old Coldplay back we all fell in love with. But this album really ain’t bad you know? I like it, it’s good. It doesn’t reach the levels of old Coldplay but I’m really pleased with it, enjoying it. Best songs: Orphans, Church (this is Chris in his element, singing about fancying girls, that’s when he pulls the special stuff out), Daddy (hated the snippet they released, thought it was cringe, I was very wrong), Eko, Trouble In Town, Old Friends (hello Parachutes) and finally Champion Of The World (encapsulates the full band performance I love, great tune). Don’t like BrokEn at all. But considering I didn’t like loads of AHFOD (first time disliking Coldplay songs), that’s alright, we’re back on track. That’s my review.

After a lot of full replays already, I am totally sure this is my favourite album ever. Not exaggerating. It has something really special, but I can't tell or transcribe into words. And unlike every previous record, I like *every* single song

lmao the clean version of Trouble In Town is such a mess with all the muted fuckings

and clean Guns sounds like Chris isn't sure what he wants to say when he sings "everything's gone- .............. craaaazy"

Yes it is.. and I bought Trouble in town thinking I would get the song without the sample.

But I prefer it with the full sample, because this just sounds really weird.. :confused:

The lyric video for Trouble In Town on youtube is without the sample and I think it's much better. Or did you mean something else?

 

 

So, I have created an mp3 version of the album while removing any voice memos (on Trouble In Town, When I Need A Friend, Boni Adam) also replaced the album version of the WOTW/POTP with the live version of the song. I think it sounds better this way.

 

Did you edit those out yourself? How's the quality?

Having watched a bunch of interviews on youtube, I think that the album originally was called 'Unfiltered'. Chris has used this word to describe their 'state' right now multiple times. 'Music of the Spheres' is also possible, of course, but they never mentioned it once.

The negative backlash from people, even fans, over Coldplay's decision not to tour until they work out a more sustainable approach is surprising to me. From haters, like Fox News who just wants the planet to go down in a fiery ball of destruction anyway and gives no Fs, I was not surprised. But for angry fans....I totally understand disappointment but some of the vitriol I am seeing from so called fans is absolutely ridiculous.

Hmmm I haven't seen an angry fan yet about their decision? Maybe because I'm not really active on the more hostile platforms like Facebook haha.

I've ripped off the lyric video from YouTube last night. It's in the same audio quality as the album, only with no sample. You can DM me if you want it.

If you compare this with the original one, the quality is terrible. Song is more beautiful than this. In this one Chris is so dark. Original is more colorful and joyful.

Because that is not the official audio, is the recorded one someone made it available for us to hear it when there was no sign of the song yet

So I ordered the complete package CD/vinyl/cassette and they throw in the tee shirt. I was surprised when I got home to find that my order had not arrived and on checking the website for my order status (fully expecting to see that it has been dispatched) find that it is still showing as 'packing'. Has anyone else experienced this? To say I am beyond unhappy is a slight understatement! :mad:

Same for me!

That was you? Cool! Nice collection!

Hey, what's the X&Y era disc you have there on the left? Is that a 12'' single of 'Talk'?

 

It's the remixes vinyl for Talk, It has 3 songs... A really nice disk tbh. And actually I have a big collection of discs too!

From fans? Huh. I haven’t seen anything from fans. Just idiots who dislike the band so much they still find the trouble of commenting. :expressionless:

 

I respect their decision for not touring. They just came off a huge tour and they deserve a break. They are getting older and I’ve accepted the fact that they might tour as extensively as they would do. And good on them for looking into environmentally touring. All bands should follow suit.

 

I’m just happy I’m still getting new music from them.

So, I listened to the album in full last night as soon as I got home. Weirdly, though I liked it, it didn't immediately "hit" me. Some songs I loved immediately (When I Need a Friend had my jaw on the floor and I had the biggest tearful grin on my face while listening to Champion of the World), but others I was just so thrown by because they were so different from what I had come to expect from Coldplay.

 

I went to bed, got up this morning and put the album on again while I caught up on NaNoWriMo. And I found that, all at once, I was loving every bit of it.

 

. . . It's been on repeat since then. I'm on my third listen this morning.

 

All I can say now is "Wow." The guys really pulled off something special with Everyday Life. I'm still very much in the honeymoon phase, so I don't know where it will ultimately rank for me against their other albums, but it's definitely going to be in the top half. Their last few albums I have found to be a little "unbalanced" in that I had a strong preference for either the first or back half (for instance, if I'm going to listen to a Ghost Stories song, 90% of the time it's one of the songs from the back half of the album). Everyday Life is much more like their earlier work in that I'm feeling drawn to both halves.

 

First impression ranking: 7/10

Morning after ranking: 8.5/10

Highlights: Trouble in Town, Daddy, Arabesque, When I Need a Friend, Champion of the World, Everyday Life

Havent seen it myself either, but Id shocked thats the case. One of the usual rebuttals I hear in situations like this, when stars take their private jets to a Live Aid concert is, if they really cared about the environment they wouldnt do that. Coldplay is putting their money where their mouth is and ACTUALLY following through. Maybe one of the first times in history or at least this high profile. I know Chris recently talked about Greta, maybe he took some inspiration after, IIRC, she took a more environmentally friendly option to make it to her events.

 

Im selfishly disappointed I wont see them live this era, but damn proud of the band for truly standing up for what they believe in and not just spewing empty words.

I would totally listen to that!!

For people who haven't read it yet, they plan to release their unreleased songs at some point in the (long) future!

This is by Jonathan Dean who recently interviewed Coldplay and he shared some bonus quotes that didn't make it in the interview.

 

YAY! That's the best news!

I think what he said is getting majorly twisted in the media... I expect still normal fantastic Coldplay tours with as many elements as possible being environmentally friendly , now because he said this ppl are acting like they have to be 100 percent eco which is impossible lol he didn’t say that obviously they stil have to fly etc . A huge production needs a lot of elements but if they can do some big changes obviously some is better then none:) I don’t think we’ll see him sailing from place to place lol but I’m sure we will see some positive steps taken to make things better :)
