  1. @I ran away I just want to say that I am so happy for you that you got to see the show!! What a memory for you :) Feel free to post a many details about the evening as you'd like, so I can live vicariously through you, haha! Also glad for those who got to get together with fellow fans in London, that'd be so neat. I hope I get to do that someday. I would have joined in the fun if I were on that side of the Atlantic. Really, all of you on here are all I have to converse with regarding Coldplay. On that note, with Thanksgiving coming up, I am so thankful for Coldplaying and my fellow Coldplay

  2. I really enjoyed the BBC session. 'Daddy', so beautiful (as always). 'Lovers In Japan' was unusual, in different key. But I sang along anyway.^^ Was hoping they would also perform 'Sparks'. But after 'Arabesque' the chance felt very thin, as there were two more songs left by then. Feel sorry for Chris having vocal issues especially on the last song.

  3. INSTANT CLASSIC ALERT! It's grown to be one of my absolute favs of the album! A perfect Coldplay song that really lets the band shine and the lyrics are Chris' best work in a very long time imo. I am so, so grateful for this song, it feels like an anthem for all the misfits, and to an extent, for Coldplay and their fans.... Coldplay have taken so much shit during their career, and by extension so have we.... It feels like this is for everyone who struggles, everyone who's rejected, a hymn to never give up and to be yourself. And Will sounds SO good!!!! I really hope they will consider pla

  5. Lovers In Japan was so amazing with the strings oh my god. So glad it's a part of their setlists now. Also, is it just me or the intro / outro of the song sounded exactly like Orphans? I think I've been listening to it too much.

  6. Here's what they replied You’re one of the lucky orders to receive an free pin with your order. However there’s a delay with the merchandise that pushes the ship date until December 6th 2019. Let us know if you ok with this or would like us to remove the pin. I'll probably just wait. But I stressed that I want to see the $9 shipping waived since it was delayed.

  8. Oh...i'm so touched by Gal Gadot's happiness (not!). Wonder how much time she and her husband spent refreshing the gigsandtours.com page to attend the gig...or what on earth she can do for a sustainable gig (beside a post on instagram or tweet) to be invited to see Coldplays' sound-check. Probably she just rent a private jet from L.A. to London to contribute for the environment in the world...and did even not make-up herself to gain the band's invitation... Like someone before said..... Coldplay, You're sooooooooooooooooooooooo faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!! (S

  9. In the studio version, Chris is rambling for most of it. In the live version however, he actually finished the lyrics and therefore sings it all! I LOVE how they gave us an actual draft, a demo, that's really cool. Haven't we been begging them for demos anyway? The tune is so sweet. It feels like Chris is somewhere in the world and you're next to him while he's randomly playing guitar...So cool... Would definitely love to have a transcript of the lyrics from the Jordan stream though!

  11. Hi guys, I have a lot of thoughts about the album which I'd like to share- apologies if this is in the wrong place. I thought an individual thread would make sense because this is going to be pretty lengthy! 'Sunrise' is undoubtedly a beautiful opener to the album, and sets the tone really well for what is it to come. However, I've always found the opening tracks of Coldplay albums to be amongst my favourite (especially Politik- one of the best things they've ever done in my opinion), and perhaps the most crucial track of every album. I'm completely aware that this album was intentionally m

  13. Suggestions: some silly, some serious :) -The last 15 seconds of Sunrise, as appeared in the first preview of the album. -The police brutality snippet on TiT...won't your colleagues just love hearing "WHAT'S THE X STAND FOR..FUCK.." -The last few notes of Daddy where the piano and xylophone play the same ascending melody -Horns from Arabesque -The intro to Eko (those guitars!) -The autotuned voice of "cry cry cryyyyy" over and over again -The intro to Orphans Speaking of ringtones, this is one of my favourite videos of all time - pay attention to the first few seconds:

  16. I think this response does suggest that the band itself didn't really have any control over what happened. Yes, on a broader scale perhaps they could've prevented it, but ultimately, from what I understand, it was the organizers and security who really turned it into a mess. Whereas for the Saturday show in Amman, judging by the YouTube videos and the iHeartRadio broadcast, people wanted to be there and knew Sparks well enough to be audibly singing along. It sounded to me like, while there were some people who just wouldn't shut up, the vast majority were into it, and that was true for m

  17. Well, this was all about promo. They had to get all the journalists and important folks in so they can talk about it. But let me be clear that SUCKS a ton for all the fans watching instagram videos and seeing more than half the crowd just standing there as if they don't give a shit. It's extra frustrating because we know this album won't get a tour and most of us won't ever hear these songs live anyway, SAME FUCKING BLOOD

  18. WHUAT how can you not know this famous componist! D: Yes, if you don't know the roman empire was pro queer, and Tchaikovsky had several secret gay romances, I find the song somewhat random in those aspects. But Chris is also singing about flags "You don't need no flags to tell you who you are " I just think about the Pride Flag and how it's still necessary to show people that queers are also humans. So all these three aspects combined all share the same "secret" message and I love that :D And concluding: "And I just love you for yourself " I LIKE THIS SONG AND ITS MESSAGE VERY MUCH

  21. Although I'm sad they aren't playing much this era, this just makes me glad that I did see them twice during the AFHOD tour. Over the past few years I've become increasingly worried about the environment myself, and I can understand their reasons for not touring. Although I always used to wish I saw them before AHFOD, I think it was an amazing point in terms of the spectacular scale of the tour that they might not reach again for a long time or even ever for good reasons. And I'm not sure how I feel about the acoustic version of Fix You either...it's definitely a song that works better as a bi

  25. Well-articulated. You've captured many of my own thoughts on the album. I agree that lyrics are perhaps the weakest element of the album. At the end of the day, I can't shake the effect this work has had on me emotionally. It is as if I've had the opportunity to reconnect with a younger me. Songs like Church, Everyday Life, Champion of the World, and Trouble in Town feel like they were ripped right from the pages of the early 2000s - yet somehow they work in 2019. Though there are bigger numbers intended for stadiums, this album has a more generally intimate nature and it is breathtaking a

  26. So Flags... The bonus track for Everyday Life... I absolutely love this song. Creeping up to my top Coldplay songs. Just to clarify I am loving this new record. It's beautiful, heartbreaking, and full of life and love. On top of that they have something of Scott Hutchison on here which warms my heart. But I wish Flags was officially on this album. They could have found a spot. The whole world deserves to have it and I hope the band release it at some point. Meanwhile, Japan, please help the world out in the meantime. Hope everyone is enjoying Everyday Life and if you have heard

  27. It's fun but I definitely prefer the original, with the organ and the big kickass drums. The Midnight-crossover version's pretty good too. :) This version is really interesting though because it's not just acoustic guitar, it's like actively FOLKSY acoustic guitar kind of like on Till Kingdom Come. I wonder if more of X&Y started that way than we think. Or maybe they're just trying a thing out. What if the next album is aggressively folk rock, like an album's worth of the Goldrush?!

  28. I cannot get over how great of a song this is. On my first listen, it was in my bottom three songs — and now it’s in my top three. Legitimately solid song.

  30. I wondered if this might be the case. Especially because of this Bani Adam snippet from way back in 2010... Which reminds me... @cp3176, I'm seriously thinking our little theory about Eko/Aiko might just be correct. This "Wedding Album" partially evolved into MX and partially evolved into Everyday Life, which retains more of that rawness. I think that is the case, because there's some evidence that both Wedding Bells and Christmas Lights existed as separate songs at the same time. Maybe they were supposed to compliment one another?

  32. Loads of people talking all the way through the song. I can see this happening at a stadium gig in the back. But in such a small venue for such a special occasion? No words...

  33. I guess it's difficult to find a balance between promoting your album to "important people" and engaging with fans. There weren't many people outside but to those few it would have meant the most to attend, and their excitement/posts on social are free promotion for the band too. I accept there were limited tickets but hope they improve the organisation side of things for future events.

  34. Reading the thread, I agree that the organization is messed up. Especially the random ticket handout that happened outside last minute. But let's be clear. It's up to the band how they share their music with fans. The band has made it clear that we won't get a tour for this era. Seems like they are doing some promo shows to get the word out and push album sales. That's it. Bottom line, these shows are not targeted for the fans. It sucks! But it is what it is. It's not like the band does not do big tours. We'll get our chance to see them live soon. So let's be patient :) like an idiot, I'

  35. Hi again everyone ! Sorry for not posting here in a while. I was the person from here who managed to get a ticket :D and all thanks to the amazing @Captain Crieff and the amazing @SpinningPlates !! Yeah, same. Fix You on acoustic guitar just doesn't work imho. I think we really should. This whole concert and ticket process was messed up on so many levels !!! It was heartbreaking to see all the hopeful fans, some of them come a long, long way, not get in.

  36. Yeah! I feel the same. The guitar is kind of played too fast, if that makes any sense. This version can't transfer the feeling that i get when i listen to the studio or "older" live versions. Sounds nice but lacks a lot of sentimental vibe as you already said!

  40. YES! The verses of Everyday Life and Church have the same progression (I haven't checked if the same key), and indeed Jonny's guitar part in the second verse are like the swelling synth part in Church. And funnily, both songs sound exactly like Porcelain by Moby:

  44. I do think it's weird that they've been talking about not caring about what people think of them anymore and then this one tweet kinda sets Chris off. Especially after the way Chris says he reacted to criticism of the band's Super Bowl performance. But it's understandable. Chris has got fame, but he's also human just like the rest of us. People with fame may develop a thick skin in the public eye, but for all we know they could be struggling beneath the surface. To me Everyday Life and Ghost Stories both represent a lot of that angst and sadness underneath the surface of the band that just

  45. I really like this song. Probably one of my favorites from EL. I just wish the lyric at the beginning said "Jonny" instead of "Tony". Can you imagine? A song directly homaging Buckin' love! BTW: Who's Tony?

  46. Towards the end of "Bani Adam" and at the begining of this song we hear a sample of a song called "Otuto Nke Chukwu" (Translates to "Glory to God") by an old nigerian artist called "Harcourt Whyte and Choir" that says: Translates from the igbo (Nigerian language): So I guess there's a lot of nigerian music elements in this new record.
