Still dont like this song, it feels like nothing happens, also the lyrics are Just bad.

...nothing happens?

1 min long orchestral overture + lullaby-esque piano melodies - striking arpeggios layered over harps and strings + a great slow rock orchestral buildup + emotionally cathartic choruses + beautiful and minimalistic glockenspiel and string melodies + a 5/4 time signature + a David Gilmour-esque guitar solo + woah-oh-ohs (x4) + an ending coda = nothing?

I don't even know what to say... I waited until 1AM my time for the premiere and listened to the song twice.  I'm at my family's weekend house and this is my view right now (long exposure shot).

My profile picture finally has paid off. I don't know y'all this is just too much to take right now. TLDR: My love for this song couldn't be more. I had accepted that Everyday Life might be one of the

Wow... just, wow. This is the Coldplay I fell in love with. 10 minutes of ethereal beauty. It's like what would happen if David Bowie's Life on Mars and Space Oddity are combined with Coldplay's

Jonny on the second line of his solo plays the note that we were all calling a mistake (the E above the B)

It's intended to be that way, a little dissonant but organic

Yes, I'm using the word "mistake" loosely. It's more that there's 2 guitar tracks on top of each other, and you'd normally expect them to be the same so the fact that they're not implies either a mistake or something intentional. My GUESS is that Jonny meant to make them identical, made a mistake on 1, but he or the band chose to keep both. But I agree - dissonant and organic in a cool way. The live version loses that dissonance but obv still sounds good.

I'll post this here, since it's specifically about Coloratura.

A thought occured to me, which led me to listen to Ghost Stories front to back for the first time in a year or so and my conclusion is bold but also correct (for me)

I would take Jonny's guitar on this one song, not just what he's playing but also how it is mixed and how loud it is relative to everything else, over everything he plays  on Ghost Stories, taken as a whole. 

Which is incredible to me because, as great as he is on it, the stand out features on the song are really Chris' piano playing, the lyrics and the soundscapes in general (synth and violin). Just everything coming together.

Wondering if people will think this is unfair because it might be their best song and also it's ten minutes long but it's not even a quarter of the length of Ghost Stories. :thinking:

This song still blows me away with every listen.
