I found that video to be accurate until it got to MX onwards. He pretty much trashes all the newer albums and then goes on to say “Coldplay have done nothing wrong”. Smh
But this shouldn’t be surprising because the creator of that video is a massive Radiohead fan so it explains it all really.
To me, the true fans of Coldplay are the ones that grow and evolve with them. I know longtime fans of Coldplay who’ve been with them right from the start of their career and absolutely love their new pop based singles. For example, these same ones who loved alt rock songs like Yellow, GPASUYF and Talk now prefer songs like Orphans and SJLT. If Coldplay didn’t adapt a more poppier sound (or hasn’t explored more genres like in EL), they would become very boring in this day and age of music today. They would not be the biggest band in the world. Simple as that.
