In any case, we have Jonny to cling to, his riffs never fail, tbh + think it was about that upcoming song, maybe?

 

Yeah, sure... but Johnny's becoming inaudible. His guitar work on AHFOD is really SUPERB, but you can barely hear it most of the time, because of that claustrophobic production.

 

Well, maybe we are overreacting. We shall wait; luckly they will drop it by Monday.

But the point imho is that Coldplay chooses producers that will help them get the sound they are looking for.

Exactly!

Many Coldplay fans thought for example that Stargate had ruined AHFOD. But there are several interviews where the members of Coldplay, all four of them, are full of praise for the Nowegian producers.

 

Let's face the fact that Coldplay have their own musical taste, and that it is not necessarily that of some of their fans.

We really can't predict anything about the sound of this album based on all of the information that has come out, though. I mean these three producers could only be on one of the tracks.

Sigh while I should've expected posting about Timbaland would suddenly trigger people it's still disappointing. Seriously guys?

Surely they are involved with this album, why would they share the photo otherwise?

I wasn't too happy with the EDM production, but it seems like the band like it alright.

I don't have a clue how it all fits to the album's theme (but then again, we don't know what the album's theme is!!!).

We just have to wait and trust the band to present us with what they surely think is their best effort yet.

I will agree with this. Jonny's guitar has become distant in GS and AHFoD. Not in every song, there are exceptions (AHFoD, Birds, AoAL) but it's disappointing. I'm hoping this changes. One does not simply make an album based on 1919 and include Timbaland.

All three of the "beatclub" shared that snippet, so I do expect them to be heavily involved in the album. I bet it's not just for one track.

Even *if* Timbaland and co are producers, I highly doubt they’ll be producing every song. Think about songs like Lost! which have that RnB sound - it fits perfectly into what most regard as a perfect album. I’m thinking this album is going to be a real mix of styles which I love the idea of - I mean VLV even had shoegaze!

 

Given the 1919 promos and the musical piece in the teaser, I really don’t see this being as full blown pop as AHFOD

 

Unless Stargate get involved anyway!

I think all the Timbaland could possibly provide is a good drumbeat. Think Apologize by One Republic

I actually much prefer the original version's beat that OneRepublic created. His version strips out the violin and puts in a generic-sounding piano. IIRC the guitar is taken out, too, near the end.

Well, yes? As surprising as it might seem, some people are not into this sound and are going to complain. Many others love it. That's life.

I think we might have been unnecessarily biased towards expecting an experimental album based on a random tabloid article. One of those really unreputable tabloids at that. That's on us. I'm letting that idea go and keeping an open mind from now on.

Hey, have you checked out the Oldplaying thread I made ? I think you might like it ! https://www.coldplaying.com/forum/index.php?threads/the-ultimate-oldplaying-thread-s-bs-tbr-p-arobtth-x-y-vlv-pm.104785/

 

By the way this situation right now is giving me flashbacks to the Oldplay/Newplay battles in the LP7 thread, which was really ugly in parts. Let's all respect each other's opinions and not start something like that again.

*shrug* still disappointed that it caused a negative vibe.

 

As an original fan from the Parachutes days nearing my 40s, I think it's just inevitable that a band is going to change with the times so they can stay relevant. Otherwise we would have no new Coldplay music at all. If you would have preferred that then I don't know why you are STILL a fan.

 

That's my opinion and that's life too.

Ok everyone. Back to the original topic. Think we'd get another teaser today? Or any this weekend?

I'm not sure. Was that snippet the 30 second Trouble in Town teaser? I think it was only 15 seconds but I have to believe that's what they were talking about.

I don't think that was the teaser to be honest, cause the 30s Trouble in Town teaser was supposed to be on the website.

 

Maybe we will get another bit tomorrow...on SUNday ?

I hope we get more this weekend... hopefully whatever that is in the website code. Chris and Guy acoustic? We never really see just them playing anything, it's usually Chris and Jonny when the full band isn't involved.

IIRC usually there are multiple teasers with LP/first single announcements. So a proper song snippet should be coming up I think.

I haven't. Cause I dont care about producers. And mostly because I don't understand it and just ignore it.
