  1. Great post! That guitar pedal is definitely interesting! Giving some very interesting opportunities to mix up the sound a bit. Also I have felt like they are definitely still recording, maybe changing up a few things after being able to rehearse and play in live setting. Also rehearsing and playing new songs live could help to decide on tracklist and inspire writing more new songs of course. Considering there still seems to be some time until the release of the whole project, I guess it's quite sensible to still work on it. About the album being poppy. It probably will be, but I gues

  3. I must admit I'm not feeling entirely hopeful about the new era. But I think people are forgetting that Music of the Spheres as a concept started during the Viva days and that all the reused terms (Alien Radio) and reused set ideas and costumes from the MX tour seem to confirm this. Just like the MX and Viva eras, Jon Hopkins is allegedly back (from his reddit AMA) and that we've heard only one pop song (HP) while hearing another in the vein of Everyday Life (HH) and a weird ambient intro that sounds like the Escapist, MMIX, and Always in My Head combined. People are also overlooking

  4. I prefer the first music video to be honest. Just feels more natural.

  5. I would think working with Stargate on AHFOD is what got them to indulge in the sounds of mainstream pop, not working with Max Martin several years later. If they really want to work with a successful pop producer, I wish Coldplay would work with Greg Kurstin instead... he may be known for his work with pop stars like Sia, but he did an incredible job on the last two Foo Fighters albums. And the Foo Fighters aren't mainstream pop. They're a popular alternative rock band and Kurstin helped them experiment, but he didn't turn them into something poppy at all.

  6. I really don’t know how to feel about this, I just really hope Max Martin is trying to be more experimental and is trying some new sounds himself, working with the band to create something bigger than them, and himself; as in: I hope he isn’t trying to make something formulaic, but that he is pushing his own boundaries to grow too... let’s hope the guys are strong enough to not β€œfollow the crowd” blindly and stand strong with their convictions on what sounds they like!

  7. I really risk being called out for being too negative, but I am unfortunately certain that they will follow the crowd... I hope at least there will be 2-3 songs that I like. I can't stand Higher Power, I think it is abysmal. Mind you, I love 90% of their stuff. I think Everyday Life was their best album since Viva. But this... God, I hate everything about Higher Power... Human Heart sounds OK.

  8. I'm so excited by this guitar-synth thing. Jonny already makes such cool sounds on the guitar, whether that's the main riff in POC, the ambient intro of MX-era GPASUYF or AROBTTH-era Spies. Matthew Bellamy (guitarist of Muse) and Chris Wolstenholme (bassist) both run their instruments through lots of synth pedals and get super interesting results. Simple application - arpeggiator on the guitar More complex application - making dubstep with guitars and bass πŸ˜„

  11. ^This. Exactly this. Production is one thing, but songwriting is another. My issue with Newplay isn't necessarily that Jonny's guitar or Guy's is sometimes mixed poorly (though that is a problem), it's mostly that some songs just aren't as sharply written or as catchy as Oldplay. Higher Power is overall a well written song with fun, clean production. But does it feel as cinematic as Paradise? Or as danceable as AOAL? Or as catchy as Magic? Or as energetic and raw as Orphans? Not in my opinon. Only time will tell on how MOTS shapes out -- I doubt it will be 100% pop songs, but the ratio co

  12. So it's been confirmed that HP is the soundtrack for the latest BMW commercial. I guess what Coldplay and BMW have in common is their goal to become more environmentally friendly. That, and how with their latest launches and their changes in style they've alienated large parts of their fan bases.

  13. The music video is impressive, holy wow... I can't stand Chris' dance though, he looks ridiculous. 😞 I generally hate this song with a passion, there is not a thing that I like about this song. But the video, wow. Minus the dancers, I think that this would have been a perfect video for Hurts Like Heaven.

  15. Couple things have stood out over the past few days : 1. Chris' discussion of Max Martin seems to suggest the album will be very poppy, which I think we already were expecting. He basically said that Max is helping members of the band realize they can make songs that are more pop. Hard to know if he was talking about Higher Power or this whole era. 2. The band is still recording? Chris said he had a song for Max Martin just the other day, and it seems like they're doing their interviews from the same building where they could be wrapping up the record. So maybe MOTS wasn't finished

  16. Hello fellow Coldplayers! I tried to combine my passions with my work and, as part of a research programme at my uni, I'm doing a study on music consumption and interaction with brands of music artists, including Coldplay fans. Why Coldplay? Because I'm a fan myself (I chose my favourite bands for this study to make it more pleasant ☺), and a vast international Coldplay fan community is also a plus! If you have a few minutes, I would like to ask you for a little help by completing this short Coldplay-related survey: https://qfreeaccountssjc1.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6Qd4sigf1u8VrbU

  18. Sorry double post but wtf is this ??? Coldplayxtra on Twitter => Chris: β€œRight now I live in fear of being told off by Phil, who’ll be like β€˜you shouldn’t have told anybody about that, we’re gonna surprize people’ - but if you like extremely heavy death metal jazz fusion, you’re going to like what we’re doing” PopCrush
