  1. Agree with that^ However I do believe that Coldplay have become much bigger than their type of music warrants today. I mean they are a household name now and there are more casual fans of the band than ever before who know them only through their hits (Paradise, Viva, The Scientist, Yellow, ASFOS, SJLT). This imo skews their listener profile and so for them to carry these fans to their next album, they need to have Pop songs, ensure relevance by collaborations etc. So today, I don't understand Chris. Imo he's not being honest with himself. They say they don't care about chart perform

  2. I don’t want music that sounds like what they were doing 20 years ago. Coloratura came out this year, Everyday Life less than two years ago. I want stuff that sounds like what they’re capable of doing now, and they’re clearly capable of a lot better than the bulk of MOTS.

  3. These are a couple of highlights from Phil's alien radio broadcast: The Race is coming soon (but then he said later so idk lol) Let Somebody Go will receive a music video When he was asked about POTP as a single - he answered with a question - which one would you choose - POTP or Humankind? Volume 2? "I mean... we've only released vol. 1 a few days ago" - well he didn't say no haha MOTS and Mylo Xyloto are connected, more to come soon Infinity Sign was based on Life is Beautiful, but the chants are from the Buenos Aires show.

  4. Why hello everyone! I can't believe we're finally here! MOTS is out!!! I listened to it about 5 times I think yesterday. They've done it again, they put out a truly surprising record. What stands out is how bold it is, they've made bold choices and therefore it is only normal that opinions are divided. The flaws imo: I do think the flow is less optimal than usual, which is a surprise because that's truly something they have mastered for a while now, a signature of their albums. I do think also that depending on the platform/version you listen to, there are lots of differen

  6. Everybody knows the mums know best, so here are my mother's opinions on the new album. My Universe My mother didn't like it when it first came out but after hearing it for a second time it has grown on her a lot, like it has for me. Humankind My favourite track on the album alongside Coloratura, my mother was positive about this song. I loved the choruses on this song, and my mother did as well. Let Somebody Go She didn't give any opinions on it (although that isn't a bad thing), but she did ask "Who is Selena Gomez?" Bless her. She is my idol. Human Heart

  7. I don't know about you all but I've grown to love Let Somebody Go.... Humankind would be a good opener if you ask me. That start is begging for a stage.

  8. We all have different taste even in Coldplay music. You don't have to like everything your favorite artist does. As long as we respect eachother it's totally fine! I am totally thankful that they have written this masterpiece that is Coloratura πŸ™

  9. I already came to terms with the fact that Coldplay are going through a decline, which is normal for most artists and bands once they start getting old. Artists with high integrity tend to be the exception, and there are others like The Killers who seem to get better with each release. Analyzing Coldplay's long career retrospectively, it becomes more clear to me that they peaked with Viva La Vida, and they weren't able to be as prolific and creative ever since. I'm not expecting that much for their next LPs really, but it would be interesting to see if they will continue to make music with thi

  11. I see in social media lot of messages about people who doesnt want the new album to be leaked and I dont understand why. Nobody forces you to listen the new album before de 15th, but what is the problem to other people listening it? And what is the difference with people who has now the CD and can listen the new album before all of us? I assume that all of us will buy the new album, even if we got the mp3 files earlier. But if we can listen the album the 11 or 12 better than the 15th, isnt it?

  12. Good analysis! I agree it seems like MOTS is an extension of EL especially in the theme of togetherness, one people, inclusiveness, world languages etc. I will likely always think of these albums together despite their stark production differences. The more I think about it, the more I'm kind of angry they did a space theme but didn't deliver any narrative. There's not ONE song that actually discusses the "planet" in a tangible way except Coloratura. Honestly, they could have named this album "Music of the Pizzas" and had songs like "Hawaiian" "Pepperoni" and they still just would have b

  14. MOTS for me is the boys taking their experimental phase from Everyday Life and applying it to a pop framework akin to A Head Full of Dreams - and it is so, so much stronger than that album. A sign of how much I like it came when I tried to decide on my least favourite track, which I found genuinely difficult. On balance it's probably My Universe, which I still like. Humankind, People of the Pride and Coloratura are all potential elite tier songs. Biutyful surprised me massively and is one of my favourites. Infinity sign is a great Hopkins piece, and Let Somebody Go has been a real gr

  19. I think there low-key is a leak but it’s really only the elites who are getting them not plebs like us!! This is great for Coldplay anyway, means that we will all hear the album at the same time relatively. I’ll be one of the first in the world being in New Zealand, less than 1.5 days to go now!!

  21. Their leak prevention's been good this era, impressive for an artist this huge, even compared to EL - HP didn't leak at all, MU got leaked, but it was the unfinished demo, while the entirety of the album hasn't leaked. It's impressive how many of the "leaks" have been the band basically shooting themselves in the foot - leaving behind alien languages in Barcelona, accidentally posting the Higher Power teaser a week ahead of time, Phil leaving little clues about planets, playing songs during a public event even before the album was announced, Warner and its other companies posting about ot

  23. The thing is, if they didn't release Coloratura the entire Internet's Anti-Coldplay agenda would be in full swing. "They haven't made anything good since Viva!" "BTS and Selena? No thanks!" "I want to see classic Coldplay, not stupid pop dance Coldplay" "Max Martin only does stupid pop songs!"

  24. Okay, I have some things to say. Regarding the Vol. II, I think Coloratura is the key; since Coloratura is a planetary nebula – which leads to another new planetary systems – allied to the last piano chords of the song, I think they have a free pass to leave The Spheres and dive in to another set of new planets. It would be amazing indeed – as someone already pointed out – if they referenced their old works in the new music such as, the planet and robot from the "Talk" music video, and Silencia from the concept of Mylo Xyloto. The Silencers were already mentioned on the "My Universe" video, an

  25. The thing is there was a near-universal backlash on Everyday Life as well, I clearly remember the wave of hate when it leaked a week before the release or so. Reading between the lines on social media, it seems that fans think it's actually great? To me it feels like this has been happening with every album since about Viva. The classic whining of people who want the band to return to something they've been doing 20 years ago, and then those who find at least a couple of songs on the record to listen to, because there's always a big variety. I'm not saying this is their best work,

  27. You don’t become one of the biggest bands in the world without sticking to a system. In Coldplay’s case, that means starting every album with an agreed-upon title that dictates the project’s direction, from songwriting to production style to visuals. β€œIt allows us a little bit of discipline in the studio knowing what we're trying to build,” bassist Guy Berryman tells Apple Music. β€œIf you're building a building without any kind of architect's drawings, you would just start piling bricks on top of each other.” This preparation particularly came in handy in the case of a paralysing global pandemi

  29. I cannot stop listening to Biutyful, I don't get it lol. I like it overall as a song, but I don't like crazily love it or anything (I think, maybe that's in the process of changing!). Something about it is just a VIBE. I've literally had it on repeat now for the past 2.5 hours straight!

  33. It's very time consuming prepping posts to slate the album, insult Chris's lyrics, the production, cry for the old stuff etc. Luckily we only have to wait a few days for this usual wave of positivity to hit.

  34. In the end of the day the only thing we can expect from Coldplay is the unexpected, that's the fun of it, and also the reason why they outlasted literally every other band that came after.

  35. It works the other way too. sometimes we might rate a song higher than we would if it was a different artist simply because the band and their previous work means something to us. For example, some people say some of the new songs are not so great musically but will probably work very well in concert, so overall they rate those songs higher than they would without a live show in mind that they get excited about. But perhaps a really strong song, such as Clocks, will always sound great no matter where you are when you're listening to it. Probably if you ask a large enough number of pe

  36. I truly enjoyed the songs, seriously! Even though I also agreed with some of the criticism. The problem here is that this isn't like AHFOD, which had a mixed/controversial reception, MOTS is panned, truly panned. And it all feels so unnecessary to me, people are writing the band off like they were f***ing Maroon 5 or something. Anyway, now that I'm done with my crying (it wasn't manner of speech, I'm feeling that awful), I just hope they can turn things around for the best. And no, the band doesn't need a "back to the roots" bullshit: Coloratura was bold, brilliant and new, they're still

  37. Hope Humankind will be a single. For me it's miles better than MU and sounds like it could've been on MX. Not a top 20 Coldplay song, but still pretty cool. Let Somebody Go is a sweet song, but sounds like Everglow's little sister. I'm a bit tired of that stuff, but of course it's not a bad song.

  38. So THIS is what became of Life is beautiful, the infamous song that was performed live once, supposed to be released for charity but never actually happened! Infinity sign is DEFINITELY one of my all time favourite Coldplay tracks, immediately! Good lord. Where to begin?! One of the most surprising tracks on the album, I simply did not expect to hear Coldplay live remix as a full instrumental track What is so brilliant about it is that it is addictive and you instantly think, ok, let's have a 30 minute loop version of it. WHICH MAKES SENSE because the title is literally an

  39. Being a Coldplay fan since 2002, I have never felt this underwhelmed and un moved by a Coldplay release as MOTSV1. Even AHFOD had moments that showed the musical strength the band possesses. This album sounded like a horrible attempt at R&B pop top 40 radio. The only songs that were done well: HP INFINITY SIGN COLORATURA *sadly this is possibly Coldplay’s best song on their most hollow shallow and frankly underwhelming album. Full of disappointment.

  46. It's hard to define what good production is & there's a conversation about subjectivity or whatever, but for me MOTS will likely go on to be Coldplay's best produced "pop album" based on what we've heard so far, so that is including it in league with Ghost Stories, AHFOD & MX. And before I get any hate, I wanna make it clear I love these albums/era overall. For me a pop album is about sounding "clean" to make the melodies and catchy choruses hit harder. MX is an oddball because it had some clean sounding moments that miss the mark for me (UFO, Up In Flames) but they still had Eno
