  1. I went to one of the palladium shows. I've loved this album more than any album released since I became a huge fan (2011). Still, what caught me off guard was how much I enjoyed the EL songs live than even the oldies like Sparks and LIJ. I love those songs, but the EL songs really came alive. Orphans wasn't one of my favorites in the album, but holy cow is it good live! Arabesque was the most transcendent experience I've had at a Coldplay gig. I just wish Coldplay had released this album when they were relevant in the mainstream media. Imagine the impact it could have had!

  2. Hi guys, so it might have appeared here already, but the trademark Music of the spheres was submitted by Chris, Jonny, Guy and Will. https://trademarks.justia.com/880/46/music-of-the-88046174.html The more interesting thing is that it was actually refused and asked for reconsideratiom on december 23, 2019? After EL was released already. If it was here already, sorry for double posting!

  3. They don't have the same traction with mainstream media they used to have. For example, look at the Jordan stream coverage, or the coverage focusing on the lyrical subject matter, or basically anything they have done this era. Other than the controversial no touring comments, other things were hardly written about and talked about. It happens as a band ages and the lack of promo didn't really help bridge the gap. In terms of the album being #1 it was in a few countries, but not in as many as it used to be. Like it was #7 in the US. People hardly knew that a new album was out. There was a time

  4. What makes a band relevant? They just had a no.1 album despite skipping most of the usual promo involved in releases. They also got nominated for the Brit awards. It's not too bad i think.

  5. I went to the show on Monday! I can't tell you how much I loved it. Just wish more fans got the chance to see EL songs live. Listening to the live versions makes you appreciate them all the more.

  6. Like @iranaway said, nothing in this post is true. I was there at the concert. For me, it was absolutely amazing. This concert was from a verified fan sale and the people I spoke to were huge Coldplay fans who had seen them more than a dozen times in some cases. People lined up since early in the morning to get front row. The atmosphere was good. I was singing along to the EL songs with plenty of others around me. Chris may have thought it was a shitty gig, but it was in no way a shitty gig to me. He has always been pretty self critical anyway. About the incident itself, read what really ha

  7. I wonder why they didn't market it like other albums. In certain ways it can be compared to 'Ghost Stories', also an album which they didn't tour and of which they knew it would soon be followed by another album. But 'Ghost Stories' was heavily promoted in the lead-up to ist release and so immediately became number 1 in about 70 countries. Were they really not interested in the success of EL? Btw, I don't think band music is not what people are looking for anymore. I think the success of solo singers at the moment is because there aren't many great bands around (with the exception of Cold

  8. I don't know if it has been written before, but the whole planet thing made me think about what the music of the sphere is. It was a philosophical theme by the pitagoric school that lasted till the first year of the XVII century. They thought that planets make some kind of music, for their harmony of course, that we can't hear because it has been there since our birth so our mind erased it. Kepler even tried to write it down: So,9 albums, 9 planets, harmony and the perfection of circles...

  9. No, I think it isn't a return to Oldplay. The main difference is that there are many completely new styles and musical directions. And I don't want them to return, I want them to move on. And that's what they are doing.

  10. Those weren't real fans my dude. They were autograph hunters who followed him in their car to get stuff signed to then sell on eBay.

  11. That first appeared along with the Los Unidades and Car Kids trademarks. I hadn't known they'd reapplied for it last month though.

  12. Yeah not sure if I can really define relevance, but speaking as an American, I can say that commercially, musically and pop culture-wise, they are definitely the least relevant they've ever been. EL was hardly marketed like other CP albums, and the style of music presented is wildly different from the Top 40 sounds we're hearing nowadays. And finally, I think most people still "like" Coldplay but at this point I don't see them being a huge pop-culture influence in the 2020's. Every band has to reach a point where they become more "legacy" act and are less relevant to younger people. Th

  14. I always feel strangely nostaligic about this era too, and that time around the late nineties/early noughties in general. That sort of music almost never gets played on mainstream radio these days, but I would have been ecstatic to hear some X&Y or AROBTTH tunes when they came out on the radio. I remember my mom always playing X&Y in the car around the time it came out, even though I was way too young to go to any concerts or anything. The first time I saw them live was the AHFODT, though I tried to get tickets for the GS tour...but it’s just not the same as the thought of going to

  15. Yeah, pretty much all my Coldplay pictures are older ones, especially ones from the AROBTTH and X&Y eras. I like how creative the old pictures are.

  18. I'm sorry, but literally nothing in this post is true. The Palladium shows were both sold AFTER Coldplay was announced. You're getting this confused with iHeart Radio. And he was shouting at professional autograph hunters, not at fans. "can't accept the fact that the group isn't as popular" - what ?

  20. That was the best night of my entire life!!!!! I can’t believe I got to hear Sunrise, Daddy, Champion of the World, Arabesque, and Cry Cry Cry Live! And Guy and Will looked at me too!!! :omgomg: I travelled thousands of miles for this, and it was worth it!

  21. I just want to thank Coldplay for putting this album out. They had to know it wouldn't be a chart-topper, very few songs on here are typical pop fare that they've kind of become known for. I know Everyday Life still charted #1 in the UK but it was only #7 here in the US, their lowest showing since Parachutes and I wouldn't be surprised if it's their first album not to go Platinum here. There's so much beauty in the restraint, relying on acoustic guitars and pianos instead of bombastic choruses and synthesized drum beats. I cherish this Coldplay and I hope with everything I have that we'll se

  22. Obviously the last Palladium show didn't go very well. The tickets for the show had all been sold out before it was announced that Coldplay would perform there. So they were not among fans. Very disappointed, Chris was seen outside afterwards ranting and shouting at fans who wanted an autograph. He can't accept the fact that the group isn't as popular as they were before their 'hibernation'. It's such a shame that the tour for their 8th album ends like this.
