  1. Listening to Voodoo once again and I'm liking it more... Now I can see Mylo Xyloto on two things: The intro that reminds me to the bridge of Major Minus and the drums on the first part are almost the same rythm as Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall...


    I know we are not supposed to compare Los Unidades to Coldplay but it's kinda difficult for me :P specially when they use some old elements on this song!

  2. Is Voodoo an AHFOD leftover? I have this hazy memory of an interview in which Chris or someone else said that they had this song called Voodoo but they decided to scrap it because it just didn't fit in...


    Maybe... I was wondering the same. Maybe they used the intro from the demo version, maybe they brought that demo and the others involved made their own thing like lyrics and DJ production on top of that demo...


    I have to agree that the intro of Voodoo gives me some Mylo Xyloto feels, sounds like the bridge from Major Minus, with Jonny playing that soft riff with a lot of reverb on it... I like the intro of Voodoo to be honest... I'd scrap the spanish lyrics tho, since they sound SO CRAPPY (trust me on this one, as an Spanish native speaker, those lyrics are bad), but the intro and the outro of the song are good!!!!

  3. Got to say, I don't like all the songs on this EP, E-Lo its good I guess... Rise Up is kinda meh... Timbuktu, I have to listen to it once again. And I can see Voodoo intro coming back from 2010-2011, it sounds kinda similar to what we hear on Major Minus bridge. And totally hating this Danny Ocean part. I dislike the kind of music he makes...


    Got to listen to this EP several times more to like it.

  4. Someone jump in and correct me if I'm wrong on this Voodoo question. I can't find the interview right now.


    Before AHFOD was released in December 2015, Chris did an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music discussing the new songs on AHFOD and he mentioned a track called Voodoo that "they wouldn't get away with releasing right now," with a bit of smirk.


    I think he's maybe referencing the fact that it's a wacky song, maybe super jazzy, maybe it's like XMTS, maybe it's an all out rock song. It makes me think of Creole culture, which makes me think of New Orleans/Caribbean, which makes me think it's maybe a Dancehall or Reggae song haha. Who knows how it's evolved but we'll find out Friday!


    Again, I'm a bit worried Coldplay could get in to some Politically Correct trouble here... "Voodoo" is a term with a long, complicated history, including a lot of commercial & cultural appropriation. Remember the HFTW music video controversy?


    I'd love to get that "Voodoo" mention right. Was it mentioned on an interview? Or was the name spotted on some piece of paper like other tracks were before?

  5. Off-topic but I laughed way too loud at your page's Los Unidades feat. Simpsons meme.


    XD I thought of that scene immediately! Where did you see it? Instagram? Facebook?

  6. Joining the WHAT THE HELL thread...


    What are we supposed to feel about this? Well, as long as they sound good as an alternative project, it's fine by me. It's kinda weird they re-used an old photo for this "new era". Also, the fact they made official accounts make me feel sad because of the name of this new project... Sounds bad on spanish, I mean, REALLY BAD :P But we have to get used to that...

  7. Okay... I have both (Carlton & ECW) releases in my possession. Below are pictures for comparison. The shots are basically all that is different between each version. Apart from that, they are all identical, from the content to the make.




    Hope this helps...!

    Yes!!!!!!!! Thanks a LOT! I was worried that I was going to miss something if I got the ECW version instead of the Carlton one. I thought it would be a different book quality, like a cheaper finish, but I see they're both identical. COOL! Thanks for clearing this out!


    Another thing is, I see that the ECW is a little bit smaller than the Carlton one, am I correct?

  8. What if Life is Beautiful and The Race we’re on the new LP8!!!!????


    Now that’s definitely something to think about. Life is Beautiful could easily become the In My Place of the Parachutes tour


    Was about to say that... Sometimes they performed songs from their upcoming album, like Animals and In My Place before AROBTTH came out... Maybe that's why they didn't include Life Is Beautiful on the live recordings of the upcoming live albums...


    About The Race, it's also possible that they release that track, just remember how ALIENS was featured on an old documentary around 2009? Years later we got the full track...


    Anyway, maybe they'll do the oposite and release just brand new songs altogether...

  9. I feel like I'm living in a really strange time.

    So the band that we love and cherish went on a hiatus, saying that the next tour would be not earlier than 2021 and, a part from that, "we'll only be full of surprises". Now we get this movie and after the credits they (indirectly, of course) tease us with something we haven't seen before, leaving us again to discuss (and to speculate?). Then, the Portuguese show up saying "hey, there's gonna be a gig at Estadio da Luz next year". Of course NME swallow this info and add more hype to this topic.

    What I wanted to say initially was that if they really release new music next year, this will be even more ridiculous for me because in such case, there won't be this long and promised "hiatus". So, like, Coldplay are always near you. Which is as amazing thing of course. But having read tons of posts here with people agreeing they need a good break this whole situation makes me feel weird.

    I love Coldplay. But what I love even more is that they take a good rest and won't repeat themselves with another colorful AHFOD-like poppy release.

    Thank you.

    All is Love.


    Totally agree... If they release something next year, there are a lot of possibilities that the new album will be influenced by the AHFOD era (colourful, poppier and optimistic). If they sepparate the releases between several years, the influence will be less and less, they'll be able to see things in a new perspective to write totally new music. I think a lot of us don't want an AHFOD Part 2 album. This era was great, I know, but I hope they did something a bit different this time like, I don't know, 80s-like music? xD I'd love something with a lot of classical music influence tho.


    Anyway, there's no way for us to figure this out right now, but I bet this thing is going to be pop all over again... :P

  10. Hello, well I was looking for the new book for the band, and I stumbled upon two releases from different editors:

    * ECW Press, Canada

    * Carlton Books Ltd.

    I think Carlton is the one that officialy released this book, but its more expensive that the ECW Press (at least where I'm planning to buy a copy)


    Is there any difference in the cover/paper quality between this two releases? I can't see those books phisically to check that, so I'm asking to the ones that may have this release already, and maybe we can check if there's any difference between both books! A big Thanks in advance!
