Okay but what if the (highly speculated) Coldplay x BTS collab is actually a prog rock masterpiece?

was scrolling through the older pages of this thread and it's weird how this was actually true, but different? We didn't get a Coldplay x BTS prog rock masterpiece, but we did get Coldplay x BTS AND a Prog Rock Masterpiece.

Someone sent a link to the Reddit that claimed to be a leak - it looked sketchy, but I downloaded it anyway. I opened it using an online unarchiver and its a zip file of the 12 songs from MOTS that MAY or MAY NOT be fake, but I need to access it with a password.

Is there anyone here who has advanced password-breaking software they can use to open the zip?? I have it, but it needs cracking as it may or may not be a leak.

the file you Dowland is 95.99 mb if it is like same size its just a old leak not real

ROLLING STONE REVIEW OF MUSIC OF THE SPHERES. (I transcribed the text)

COLDPLAY KEEP THEIR MAGIC FORMULA

ALBUM RATE: 4/5

With their ninth album, the epic band’s star keeps going up and up

IT’S HARD TO pinpoint the exact moment Coldplay’s trajectory shifted, skyrocketing into the stratosphere.

These are not the four skittish teens who cut their teeth writing raw, sould-searching ballads about pain and alienation.

They still exist deep down, but have since grown into brighter, sharper, more hopeful people. Coldplay have become a band defined by their success. The world fell in love with them so hard and fast that they’d be foolish to not just enjoy it now.

Pre-shift – perhaps somewhere after 2008’s Viva la Vida and before Mylo Xyloto in 2011 – the band was mainly praised for those bruising laments about the issues that hurt us most. Today, though, that wouldn’t really make sense: we find them, with ninth album Music Of The Spheres on a completely higher plane. Why would you continue to frown and wail about the world once you have, well completed it?

And so glorious and hopeful lead single ‘Higher Power’ goes somewhere more ambitions as the shimmering synths hurtle through the atmosphere towards something euphoric. That energy grows on ‘Humankind’ as robust synths set up the band’s next stadium anthem.

The bones of Coldplay’s youth are still there, though: Martin voice textured and vulnerable; an acoustic guitar strumming away, Will Champion’s drums, so giddy as if preparing a trip to space with nothing but shoes on his feet.

But Music Of The Spheres still remembers to breath, too “I Loved you to the moon and back again,” Martin sings on the tender ‘Let Somebody Go’, musing on the burning light of the stars and the pain of sudden, illogical heartbreak.

There is a holiness to album standout ‘Human Heart’, too, which understands the fallibility of the only flesh-and-blood tools we have to take care of one another.

Things switch again on the curious, epic manifesto ‘People Of The Pride’. Melody-wise, it nods to the driving guitars of ‘70s glam rock while lyrically looking towards the future, with its here “a man who takes his time/from the hands of a cuckoo clock”, another character in the band’s fantastical roster of storytellers from the likes of MyloXyloto and Death And All His Friends. It’s a song which begs for dancing, revolting, marching.

Music Of The Spheres loses its spark briefly when leaning on unimaginative lyrics such as in the syrupy ‘Biutyful’. ‘My Universe’ a funk-influenced collab with k-pop giants BTS has underwhelming vocals with awkward results. It recalls the tiresome 2017 ‘Kaleidoscope’ EP, which first flirted with the idea of life beyond our on little planet but got somewhat lost among all the additional voices on the record.

But when Music Of The Spheres does complete its mission, it’s spellbinding. The orchestral odyssey ‘Coloratura’ might be the most dazzling thing Coldplay have ever done, a sprawling Pink Floyd-esque experiment whitch pays of infinitely. Yet this album’s pleasure is also in its simplicity: it’s the sound of a supremely confident band, so aware their music now matches the euphoria of, say, a stadium triumph that ‘Infinity Sign’ slyly reworks rudimentary football chant “Olé Olé Olé” into something quite beautiful.

It shouldn’t work but it does: epitomising Coldplay’s breathless ascent ever higher. It’s just a thrill to be along for the ride.

So is there any point in trying to get tickets for the Shepherds Bush show when you’re not from the UK? Is it even allowed?

There is a new mini trailer video on Coldplay's Facebook. It really sounds like Life is Beautiful 😁

It has a beat drop. How long is the song on the track listing? I reckon that bit is the start of the song.

So this album gets 2 sequels?

We should have at least Vol. 2

two symbols seem to represent the 2 volumes on the back of HP single: the triangle is vol. 1 and the circles for vol. 2

I’d be amazed if LSG wasn’t a single in that case

I wonder how many singles we will do actually get since another volume will come out later. I guess at least 3, maybe 4... not sure about a 5th single like previous albums. Also, there's a limited number of full songs. My guess is that they will pick LSG and Humankind based on what we know so far

Dang! I was not expecting the song to have a beat like that. Interesting.. I guess it's continuing that trend of doing the 80's style but with very modern production. It sounds like a groovier Everglow.

It sounds like Fun or Princess of China but with better production. Fun just sounds so muddled and because of that doesn't hit the highs that it should, while Princess of China is great live, but the synths in the song just make me want to cut my ears off. As for the actual song being better, we'll have to wait and see...
