  3. According to Spotify I am in the top 0.1% of Coldplay listeners... And yes, my most listened to Coldplay song was Coloratura (although it didn't make it into my top 10 or even 15 songs of the year on my Wrapped).

  4. I'm curious what people think about the anticipated Music of the Spheres Vol. 2 and Vol. 3. Personally, I'm feeling a bit miffed about how MOTS was supposed to tell a story and have metaphorical planets and how it basically dropped the ball completely on that promise. Sure, the planet concepts and alien languages are cool, but musically and lyrically the band seemed to put NO EFFORT into telling a story. I'd like to say the music videos are helping, but there's really not anything connecting HP to MU. Personally, I'm afraid the band is gonna keep on creating "planets" which are just rand

  5. I think it'll be 85% the same every night, and I'm guessing once the full tour begins it'll be like: MOTS>Higher Power Humankind Clocks Fix You VLV The Scientist Yellow AOAL Rotating fan-favourite but not a famous single like Everything's Not Lost, GPASUYF, B-stage Human Heart Magic Acoustic song, slightly more obscure - UATW, TKC, acoustic version of Speed of Sound, acoustic LIJ Biutyful Mainstage Infinity Sign (started on the B stage with an ole-chant, then transitioning to mainstage) POTP

  6. How do you think their future setlists will be? Are there any MOTS-tracks that won't be played live. Any nice suprises from the past? I noticed that they played Everything's not Lost at a gig, do you think they will continue playing it? I would love to hear some songs that haven't been played live for a while, how about Talk? X&Y songs would be quite suitable for this album tour I think. Discuss!

  9. Hi to y'all, long time without writing in here. A new tour, and the second leg of announcements of the MOTSWT brings back our favourite band to Chile. Pre-sale starts on December 13 at 11 am (UTC-3) at https://www.puntoticket.com/coldplay Guess Artist is Camila Cabello. A little issue is the time gap between the last concert in September (Chile) and the following one (October 25) in Argentina. There's one month gap that we don't know how they gonna fill it up. More concerts? a special stay in a country? Covid measurements? 😧 See you there.

  10. I like the EP! People of the Pride and Coloratura feel great on here; just very crisp almost live sounding versions. POTP is definitive (tbqh). Always good to have a new Christmas Lights rendition too!

  11. Thank you for this!! So I did actually purchase the EP on Itunes. I don't have a mac or apple device so I had to sign up for a new Apple account, download Itunes, (I have Windows 11 on my PC), purchased the EP, added it to my library, but there was a problem. I tried to convert the settings to have the files as mp3 instead of AAC. Didn't work. So I had to download an AAC converter and convert the files to mp3 that way. It worked, but the audio for the 5 tracks was horrible. There were breaks in the songs, static noises, etc. So finally I have the right tracks that sound just like I purchased t

  13. I'm conflicted! I actually really like the high-slidey part of Angel Moon's voice, ie the bit that shows up in the Overtura preview. I don't quite like the voice in the verses...it just sounds like a chipmunk when they could've invited a female singer or had one of Chris's children sing it. The overall instrumental is quite interesting, with a lot of electronic/backwards sounding stuff. But it's not electronic for the sake of seeming poppy (like ASFOS or SJLT) which is sort of how you know they DID think about this track intentionally.

  21. I think I said this before here but the biggest problem to me is the Oldplay x Newplay debacle. I feel like the band might think making stuff like Arabesque, Coloratura, etc. is pandering to the crowd that mindlessly repeats "Oldplay is better" until the end of time, hence why they show up less often. We need to praise those songs for what they are: new amazing pieces that show artistic growth, that's how we encourage them to lean towards that side more, not by going "it's good because it sounds like the stuff you made back in 2005 when your mind and relationships were completely f***ed up".

  22. My issue with X&Y is that the songs by themselves are amazing. The melodies and instrumentation from songs like Swallowed in the Sea, White Shadows, Low, Twisted Logic, etc. are some of the best they've ever made. But listening to it an album, the flaws become apparent because each song, while great, is admittedly a bit formulaic. Each song barring some like the closing track basically follows a structure like intro -> first chorus -> first verse -> bigger second chorus -> quiet bridge -> guitar solo/thrashing cimax -> final chorus, this time more stripped down. And each

  23. To continue showering on the praise for X&Y, perhaps at the expense of of MOTS, I think the album does do a better job of giving a spacey feel than MOTS overall and I agree that the instrumentation is incredible -- Jonny has some sort of solo on nearly every song. The songs both simultaneously feel ambient and open while also having rich rock instrumentation. Guy and Will really take a step forward on that record. But the part of X&Y I want to highlight is how catchy it is! I know people argue over Oldplay vs. Newplay, but Oldplay had major pop appeal -- it's why people hated on

  24. I want to add something to this. I think the concept of X&Y is one of the strongest and most powerful. The simplistic "cliched" lines followed up by paradoxal lyrics makes it so much more saying than at least half of the songs in MOTS. I think X&Y really framed their view on problems and how they approach them from a space perspective. Moreover, it feels so so genuine and authentic to me. Especially when you realize that they were looking for a light in the darkness those time. And the instrumentals and vocals support the lyrics and theme in a very lovely way.

  25. I’ve arrived to back you up. I feel completely the same about MOTS. When Coloratura came out, it really did feel like the happy ending to a story we hadn’t been told yet, one where there was a big space war with some people dying but ultimately togetherness wins. Instead, most of the songs have an opportunity to advance the plot but don’t. Yes, People of the Pride established the existence of a villain. But Higher Power is just like β€œsomething is vaguely bad and I don’t feel good but I like you!” Humankind is somewhat about humans being good. LSG is about missing someone. HH is mostly about ge

  26. X&Y is an incredible album. A balanced adventure between space and humanity lyrics, that β€œacoustic” thing (from early Coldplay), and synth/pads with exquisite presence. And the first with an alphabet in it. But even that, there is an interview (that I can’t find it again now) when Chris confessed that is their worst album, not because of the songs, but because it was β€œbad recorded”. For me it’s a masterpiece. A particular contradiction, is that Twisted Logic was never performed live. In a performance of Chris with talented kids doing this song, Chris said that they never figured

  27. As you all said in previous comments this discussion is becoming really exciting! It would be interesting to compare this album with the other space-influenced Coldplay album, X&Y. The multi-layered synths there sound really spacey and there are several references to outer space: 1) the album begins with that 2001: A Space Odissey motif in "Square One". The song also features the lines "the space in which we're travelling" and "is there anybody out there, who's lost and hurt and lonely too?" 2) "White Shadows" is a masterpiece of a song and there is a line which perfectly fi

  28. Good conversation and definitely appreciate everyone's thoughts! It's true that basically no Coldplay album is truly conceptual except maybe Ghost Stories. MX also was more understandable after they released the comic book, but that was really only for big fans to dive into deeper. Perhaps with more Volumes and videos we'll get a bit more clarity on the themes behind MOTS. I think the issue I have overall is how MOTS was marketed so heavily as a space album. I've almost forgotten that Alien Radio had different clips from around the world, featuring really interesting ideas and themes --

  29. I'm curious about how they will (well, at this point, I'd better say "how they have", assuming that they have already planned everything) build the whole thing. With MX there were the comics, GS didn't actually need anything particular as the inspiration was from a real life event. For other albums there were more themes than stories in the traditional sense, so we will seeπŸ˜„ No, I also think that definitely there isn't this element of criticism towards the contemporary world, probably because they have decided to head in a different commercial and artistic direction (also in Coloratura

  30. Hi, thank you so much for replying!! You're right, though I hope for more storytelling within songs or albums. VlVoDaAHF had general themes (love, war, death and revolution) and stories within songs (like "Viva la Vida" or "Violet Hill"). ARoBttH lacked a general theme, but had good stories hidden within song lyrics ("The Scientist", "A Rush of Blood to the Head"). MX had narrative songs (like "Paradise" or "Major Minus") and followed the story of Mylo. GS was a spiritual journey through a break-up and towards unconditional love, learning how to alchemise all the things that happen to us,

  31. Let Somebody Go is pretty much confirmed to be a single, but I'd say either Humankind or People Of The Pride could be singles, but not both. I could see however the other song being included on a future EP (Aurora?) should there be one. A rumour elsewhere is that it refers to the final album, Coldplay, and stands for Finale For The Fans 2024. If it's true, and assuming Coldplay go ahead with the second and third parts of MOTS, it would mean Coldplay would be releasing a new album every year until 2024. After Coldplay/FFTF2024, who knows what will come next. I'm quite tempted to start a

  32. Someone else will probably answer this better but from what I've seen, the song was first known about on Ghost Stories, where its lyrics feature in the artwork, but was first heard in the A Head Full Of Dreams documentary, and had a copyright date of 2018. This is likely the latest version of the song. Two leaks of it were released which have little in common with the AHFOD version, and may well be an entirely different song. We're not allowed to send links to them, but all three versions occasionally appear on YouTube. They're often taken down quickly though, which could suggest Coldplay stil

  33. Hey all, I'm bored waiting for the new album to drop, so thought it'd be fun for folks to share what they think Coldplay will perform during a MOTS world tour era. This is particularly tricky because with nine albums out and the band historically performing tight two-hour shows, it is hard to imagine how they play all of their hits while still leaving room for moments that feel intimate, unique and pleasing to old-school fans who have seen them before and don't want to hear the same setlist. There's also the question of whether the tour set up will be like AHFOD, with A,B, and C stages o

  34. The opinion on this song is very divided among Coldplay fans from what I've seen, which I find really interesting. It's mostly about Angel Moon/Angelina/Chris' distorted voice. You either absolutely hate it, which ruins the song or you're unbothered by it, so you actually are able to enjoy the song. I actually fall in the latter For me it's the most surprising song off the album. At first I was like "wtf is this what am i hearing" and then during the song I started thinking "Oh wait i am oddly liking this!" I really like the "love me love me love me" bit, very rnb. The song got s

  35. The trippy slow beat is really cool. It feels like somewhat of a concept song and I like it. CP is never going to be one thing and this song is further proof of that. I even like the high pitched parts. An improvement from the Everyday Life album.

  36. This is a pretty hard one, the band has so many hits and popular songs to include. I feel like they will utilize the same kind of overall structure as in AHFOD tour, since that seemed pretty balanced and liked overall. A good mix of main stage and side stages. This is my prediction for the setlist: A-stage (Music Of The Spheres as intro when band walks to stage) Higher Power (Fireworks) Clocks Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall (Confetti) Adventure of a Lifetime The Scientist Paradise Humankind B-stage (Alien Choir on the background during t

  39. I like a lot of songs here, most of them actually for this or that reason, but somehow the album feels so short, i just started listening and here comes coloratura ahahh. I imagine myself listening more tracks individually from this album, cause somehow i cannot process it in this speed fiesta of an album. This album should be called THE RACE, as that is what it is, and the race thing will be finished for good

  41. just listened to it, while I was having breakfast πŸ˜„ my first reactions to the new songs... Humankind is Charlie Brown's and DLIBYH's child, this is easily the best song on the record and it has to be a single! The intro with the alien voice sounds like Infinity Sign, maybe it 's the long awaited Aurora's track ??? it is nowhere else otherwise Infinity Sign is really mostly an instrumental but it's a cool track Biutyful is Angelina feat. Chris Martin, apart this it's such a cute song! the music effects are hypnotizing. I was afraid not to like it but actually I was wrong

As there are ways using the EX Samples from Kawai they don't sound too good and not close enough. I am here to let people know that there is going to be a way shortly to be able to download these sounds. Me and ColdplayKB are working on a downloadable easy and straight forward vst that you can download and use to get this piano sound. Here is a sound example recorded just now from my piano. It's early and not uploaded yet. There are still some tweaks and stuff we have to add to improve the so
