  1. *scrolls through the critics and comments*

    Doesn't matter what Coldplay does, they always get shat on. ALWAYS. It's like people have a hard-on for being: "FIRST!1 Okay I hate Coldplay now give me a headpat mhyes please!"


    Anyways I think this album has a few BANGER songs that never get boring to listen to, and of course bad songs ("Biutyful" would be indeed Biutyful if there wasn't a chipmunk screaming into my ear. OH WELL)

    Overall I think the album is fantastic in terms of throwing out messages about humanity, togetherness and life appreciation, but having become a Coldplay fan due to loving Chris Martin's voice, I'm very frustrated when he doesn't sing himself or distorts his voice so much that it sounds annoying.

    As always, some songs sound better live (People of the Pride for example) and the filler "songs" are sometimes a little but... uhhh... yeah well I just skip them.

    Even though the "∞" track literally lets the fans sing, it's one of my favourite songs of the album. Also the last part of "Humankind" makes me very emotional.


    Coldplay is still producing fantastic worlds with their music and all the music critics patting their backs with their shitty reviews can suck it and listen to white noise if that's what they find hip these days lmao

    Nice to see you check in every once in a while!

    Forums are very much dying a fast death on the internet, only a few are surviving. Social media has completely taken over. I plan on keeping Coldplaying around for a long time though, even if I'm just catering to 5 people lol


    Yeah ok let's just say this forum has place close up to my shriveled heart and I will always come back :3

    This forum has heritage quality, it's a very valuable archive at this point and it offers very interesting and important insights into the band's and fandom's history. Alone for that reason it's very important to keep it online.

    What I REALLY dislike about most social platforms is their ephemerality and the lack of any form of organized register. I mean it has its appeals, but it's hard to use them in groups (I'm ignoring facebook here because that platform can go die of an aneurism UGH IT'S SO BAD) ANYWAYS PROPS FOR KEEPING THIS OLD ASS RELICT ALIVE!! :dance:

  4. I agree with Batman (HI Thalia btw :heart_eyes:) that the song has strong LGBTQ+ support vibes, ESPECIALLY considering that flags themselves are a huge part of how these communities have raised awareness over the years, and the lyrics about wanting to be free to be yourself.... Now obviously this sort of Coldplay song never has one meaning only, it could also totally be about flags as nationalities, and anyway I think this song is to be understood in the broader sense (whoever you are, be yourself and love yourself and love truly without caring about what anyone thinks). It's really about empathy once again.


    I think the lyrics are so powerful and beautiful, it's such a warm hug really. I love the Travis feel to it too. It feels lighter than the rest of the album. I don't think it matches the album so well though, musically, and I totally get why it's not in the main edition. But it's a great addition and I'm glad they released it somewhere somehow, I'm really grateful.

    I honestly only crawled out of my hole because this new album isn't particularly amazing but has some GOOD messages.

  5. ooooooooooh :surprised: thanks for posting this! I second your astonishment about jc90 not knowing Tchaikovsky, was he not famous outside Europe or so?

    Maybe it's just my gay goggles going bonkers over this song, but DAMN the connections would be too convinient hahaha.


    Maybe he knows some of Tchaikovsky's songs but not the componist's name? Happened to me too often sweatdrop.gif.e76b4d7827d36067ff66f0ee25b301ad.gif

  6. lol, you say that like its common knowledge! I dont even know who he was. When I was trying to decipher the lyrics, I knew this was a name, but could not find him in a google search with my phonetic spelling. So, no, zero vibes of that sort. Good song though regardless of that intent or not.

    WHUAT how can you not know this famous componist! D:


    Yes, if you don't know the roman empire was pro queer, and Tchaikovsky had several secret gay romances, I find the song somewhat random in those aspects. But Chris is also singing about flags "You don't need no flags to tell you who you are " I just think about the Pride Flag and how it's still necessary to show people that queers are also humans. So all these three aspects combined all share the same "secret" message and I love that :D


    And concluding: "And I just love you for yourself "

  7. I think the album has a very small amount of songs that are strong enough to lift my rating of:

    "What a mess of audio snippets/NOO DON'T RUIN THE SONG WITH RANDOM SHIT/bland guitar tracks"




    "It's better than the last two albums but still requires several re-listens to finally sound good"


    I'm already planning on heavily editing several songs once I get my audio software running LOL.

    I really dislike how there are so many REALLY ANNOYING soundbites in there that mess up the whole thing. Also a lot of them don't add anything to the overall quality.


    Anyways. I'm still satisfied with this. I'm also very happy about the lack of overly produced songs.

    Okay seriously though, please tell me I'm not the only one who gets STRONG millennial vibes from that letter.


    It honestly reads like "Hey y'all, we're really tired and old and took like 30345235 years for 5 songs lol. Anyways I can't type for shit so here are our signatures in glitter font lmao bye"


    I love them wacko.gif.1ab464579333eaadc26af88b5a692a11.gif

  9. From looking at the new designs and the general old fashioned look the Coldplay website and their social media platforms are sporting, I dearly hope their new album is more oriented towards "back-to-the-roots" fashioned stuff, and less electronic and all-over-the-place like their last two albums.

    Oh boy, what can I say, I'm actually excited! dance.gif.e74aa8a460ae96151fd7b447d341b427.gif
