  1. 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). I sat in a chair and just listened for 20 minutes while staring at the sky. I can't describe what an amazing experience this was. Last time I had a similar moment back when Everyday Life had its premiere live in Jordan at 5AM my time. What a ride. What a song. Thanks Coldplay.

  4. Have just signed up so I could give my response to Coloratura. First listen, wow, just left me speechless. Had to go back and listen again. 2nd listen loved it even more. Hearing so many different elements of coldplay across there career. Hearing bits of all my other favourite acts too, like Beatles, Radiohead, Queen, Pink Floyd, Bjork, Kraftwerk. Onto my forth listen now, this is one of the strongest songs they have ever made. A true masterpiece. Can’t wait for the rest of the album.

  7. I dont know what can be said that hasn't already been but For starters, this is the first time in a long time that I've cried hearing a song on first listen. It's just like. All of the frustration of knowing people know Coldplay for terrible songs like Magic, Hymn for the Weekend and to a lesser extent but still true Paradise and Something Just Like This. It might sound strange but this is like the ultimate reckoning for all of that generic pop music they've put out in recent years. Like many people have said, the first two things that came to mind were Pink Floyd and M

  8. This song has not a single chance to be a radio hit. Higher Power was for the general public. This is for us. Thank you, Coldplay.

  9. 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 last moments this band would stay within my music taste, but I never expected this. It's absurdly incredible, it's everything that the band has worked to achieve and in many ways it feels like their singular magnum opus, so far. Longer winding reaction, just like the song:

  10. 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 Moving to Mars, Death And All His Friends, What If, Hypnotised, and Square One. Coloratura is a space rock ballad of the highest quality, one that touches the heart and takes you on a ride across deep space. Best album closer they've ever done. Maybe even one of the greatest Coldplay songs, period. I didn't expect anything like it on MOTS, even after Everyday Life was filled with some great experi

  11. Can we just agree that we need the boys to follow their hearts? I know the mainstream stuff is not up to everybody's taste, but just imagine how we simply wouldn't have this masterpiece if it wasn't for all the years of exploring new stuff ❤️

  13. Hey folks! FYI I've just created some threads in this LP9 subforum for each MOTS vol1 tracks that didn't have its own thread yet! Please post directly on there when it comes to discussing a specific track so that we can keep this main thread not too messy 😅 Excited to see what your thoughts are on all those songs!

  14. Hi everyone! I'm new here. I've been following this thread since last year but I never created my account until now though. Coloratura is a total masterpiece, the best song Coldplay have ever written since AROBTTH. I wanted to say also that maybe Rescue St is under the name of Human Heart, I remember an interview where the band said that this song was only focused on vocals, probably the music remains the same but lyrics are different or they had to change the title due to the new album concept (planets, space and universe). And this is not the only example out there. Just listen to Huma

  15. I'm floored by this. I have the same feeling I had when I first heard Arabesque, in that I know after 1 listen this is up there as one of their absolute best. If we are talking inspiration and references, the biggest vibes I got were Pink Floyd - who are no doubt in the top 3 bands ever to record. The chorus reminds me so much of Brain Damage. It's almost like they took Moving to Mars (one of my favourite Coldplay songs) and turned it into a 10 minute epic space opera, complete with lush strings, ambient sounds, stirring guitar and the lyrics to match. Just brilliant. Also,

  16. For some reason because of Overatura I was under the impression that “in this crazy world I do, I just want you” was a part of the Infinity Sign song… I guess that song will be something completely different though. I have no words for Coloratura.

  17. I've been following Coldplay as a huge fan since A Rush of Blood and I can't remember ever seeing the band so excited to perform live again. It makes me want to see them live again so badly, I really can't wait! And I'm already having stupid thoughts about how I maybe won't be able to get tickets, or won't be able to go to the concert for some reason. It's driving me crazy, even though there's no tour announcement whatsoever. 😅 Coldplay hysteria...

  18. I haven't been posting for a long time but I just couldn't help it. Coloratura is simply GENIUS. Everytime a new song is released it's so exciting to listen to for the first time. But this time I was astonished like no other, it gave me chills...the opening of the song is like a symphonic orchestra tuning. Amazing build up, great production, doesn't feel like a 10min song. I don't think anyone here only listened to it once. It's on repeat for days! It's like a journey through time in the Coldplay universe. It sums up everything they are and everything they've become through 25 years of evolu

  19. What a journey this song is! Love all the little throwbacks to different eras, which makes it feel like a love letter to their whole carreer. Bar the stuff from Everyday Life, this might become my favorite Coldplay song since Moving to Mars.

  22. Coloratura simply beautiful. No more to say. The song has a perfect progression among the 10+ minutes. The strings are beautiful and I'm glad we had that Jonny solo. I mentioned this in the MOTS thread, but I'm so in love with this song that I need to say it again hahaha: is the perfect closure of an album and it will fit perfectly as a concert closer! This was a huge gift for us the Coldplayers!

  23. This is a VERY strong contender for best Coldplay song ever. And I better not see any of you trashing their 2010s material because it was all the years of experience and multi-genre exploration that led them to this point.

  24. If there was no ‘(vol. i)’ in Chris Martin’s message, I would have felt slightly underwhelmed with the amount of songs on the album (9 actual songs), but definitely good to see that there will be more editions coming, and a high chance they’ll have the unreleased tracks UFO, The Race and Rescue Street

  25. We all speculating about vol. 2 but we shouldn't trust them about second parts of projects. Many of them are not became real. How We Saw The World Part 2, Mylo Xyloto 2 (This was so popular rumour in that time), Mylo Xyloto Comics Vol. 2 (Comics has Vol. 1 writing in them). So it can named something different or some elements can be used in another project, naming something Vol. 1 and then releasing Vol. 2 is not Coldplay's style sadly. But i hope i'm wrong in this one.

  26. For me Coloratura is in another dimension, can't even rate it. I find it funny that even though I've followed them since the beginning and Fix You is like my favorite song ever I'm completely grounded by Coloratura. I think it's a total masterpiece. But we all have different opinions and taste and that should be respected and valued ❤️

  27. Even if all the other songs on the album were terrible (which I'm sure won't happen), it is saved by this beautiful thing. Coloratura is amazing. We live in a beautiful world.

  28. I think this is a special moment for us coldplayers, all over the world. If this is the last song they ever release, I can say I would be happy about it.

  29. Haven't posted in a while but the song compelled me too! Just like Arabesque on the last album, this is a strong showing (alongside the more conventional single) of creativity (and I like Higher Power a lot) of creativity!

  30. Guys!!! I was giving a look into my collection and this triangle symbol on Higher Power's CD is the same one from the MOTS poster they are selling. What if the second one represents the second album? I'm starting to believe in my own theory now!

  32. Full album announcement with a full track list. Album cover that's the same as the teaser in the Everyday Life booklet. Wow. The "vol.i" bit in the announcement definitely has me thinking. Why mention that if there's no "vol.ii" on the way in the next couple of years? And "vol.iii" to fit with the "melodic orbit in three parts" thing? Could those be further studio albums in the coming years, which would basically make MOTS the biggest project they've ever done? I was under the impression that the album would just be divided into three distinct parts, maybe four songs each. But now that do

  34. What's so interesting about Coldplay throughout their career is how songs can have a total different feel with production and mixing. Coloratura is a next-level musical engineering experience that feels 10x better put together than Higher Power and the leaked MU. Sometimes music just has such a professional, rich sound to it that just feels classic. The production on this song reminds me quite a bit of Random Access Memories, and given how there's gonna be some dancy songs on the record that might be a good comparison album, given how Coldplay often will give big pop songs, then big rock songs

  36. Been a lurker on this forum for years but just wanted to also express how great this song is for me. I love how they continue to find ways to change things up, and it makes it all the more special being able to read everyone else's thoughts in real time as well. 10 minutes just completely flies by when listening to this song.

  37. Colorutara currently has a score of over 4/5 on RYM, which is pretty huge. RYM is usually very negative towards Coldplay even when they're at their best, so this is a huge surprise. Several users are even calling it the best progressive rock song of the 2020s so far, which is insane.

  39. Still in love. Have only stopped listening to it for the thousandth time to revisit the album Planetarium by Sufjan Stevens if you like the ethereal ambience of Coloratura I highly recommend a listen. A lot of similarities including the albums concept.

  40. Since all of it is a speculation, here's a plot twist... We already had volume 2 with all the versions and performances of Higher Power. 🙂 Anyway, it's nice to see that Coldplay is giving us material for endless speculations and discussions to keep Coldplayers' minds busy. Can't wait to find out about the other volumes of MotS. Also I guess, with Max Martin included in songwriting process, more of the ideas could find their way to fully formed songs, so it's no wonder if they have been very productive and have music for more than one album. Not long to go until we can listen to Color

  41. Oh man, is really exciting knowing we're almost there! I haven't listened the snippets so is kind of hard picturing what the album will sound like, I mean reading all of you first impressions... A ballad, EDM, heavy guitars... So far this is what I have in my mind

  43. Don't know if anyone else saw this but someone posted this in the discord. Angel Lopez (who helped with the production on EL, participating in the creation of Orphans and COTW) said that apparently during the EL recording sessions (or maybe even MOTS because we don't know how far back that project goes), Thundercat and Lianne La Havas were also in the studio? I know La Havas is already a huge fan and also opened for them during a leg in their AHFOD tour. The timestamp is at 6:00, if you guys want to check it out. If this was during the recording for MOTS then we could see an album with a

  44. This is a pretty noteworthy event: October 15, 1997: NASA launched Cassini, beginning the spacecraft's long journey to Saturn. Cassini reached Saturn’s orbit in July 2004 and has been used to collect data on the planet’s composition, rings, moons and atmosphere. The launch vehicle used was a Titan IVB with a Centaur upper stage. Source: https://www.nasa.gov/exploration/thismonth/this_month_oct_07.html

  45. I'm wondering if it's possible to limit discussions of the My Universe leak to a dedicated thread? These seem like spoilers as compared to a lot of us who would rather wait/anticipate as this thread was mostly intended to do? What do y'all think!
