  1. This is a place we can share our thoughts about the entire album. I will also share and update critic reviews as they're published. (p.s I've had it on repeat for the last few hours but want things to cool down before I give my final verdict) The Guardian - 2/5 "Slipping status prompts a desperate pop pivot" Pitchfork - 5.1/10 "Here he goes again, looking at the stars, seeing how they shine" Independent - 3/5 "A superficial spiritual shower" The Times - 2/5 "Fluff from a band who lost their way" iNews - 3/5 "Big pop that sounds like One Direction’s lefto
  2. Jesus I watched the video of the performance, and WHAT A SONG! I haven't been this excited about a Coldplay song for years!
  3. EL had their best production since AROBTTH. I'm still fucking bummed they didn't tour that album!
  4. This song has the potential to be one of their best in recent years. We can all hope they've got something for us oldplayers too. I guess we'll just have to wait for the studio version.
  5. I talked about it in the thread for the song. I think it's pretty okay but not what people are making it out to be. Some are comparing it to Pink Floyd which is fucking ludicrous! It also not get as good as anything on EL.
  6. As a prog rock fan (namely Pink Floyd and King Crimson) I really appreciate this song and am now more optimistic towards the new album. It's still not as good as anything on EL but certainly miles better than most of the stuff on AHFOD and MX. First of all I think it's way too long for what it offers. They should have cut some parts shorter and made other sections longer. Secondly there's not enough of Jonny to really make it sound more progressive. And lastly the song doesn't really have an interesting composition (see Arabesque) and so after a few listens there isn't much to draw you back in
  7. We've been doing this shit for years my friend. Welcome to the democratic republic of Coldplaying, where we can wholeheartedly praise and adore the band's great music and crap on the terrible ones all in on place! Great response. Thank you.
  8. Awards and Spotify success don't equate to great musical craftsmanship. Just look at Anathema or Porcupine Tree. Their genius and prowess is leagues ahead of Coldplay but they're hardly ever recognized and their sales aren't exactly chart topping. I can guarantee you if Pink Floyd were releasing music today the vast majority of people would write them off. Coldplay are making terrible decisions by following the wrong crowd at the wrong time. Just look at Keane's latest album. They too embraced some of the current popular trends but they handled it masterfully and when you listen to the a
  9. I've been listening to M83 for years and it sounds nothing like them. I don't understand where the comparison is coming from. I wish some Coldplay fans didn't suffer from a superiority complex when people compare the band to the likes of Maroon 5 and Imagine Dragons. I wonder what the defense will be now! We used to joke around on here when VLV came out about how they'll one day collaborate with Beyonce and Pitbull. I'm staggered it all came true, except its only worse!
  10. I found the whole BMW thing astonishing! They keep banging on about being left-field and not worried about commercial success and then this happens. I'm reminded of when U2 was involved with Apple. Wrong move both then and now.
  11. They must be high as fuck when they're making decisions! The beautiful instrumentation with the organ and the piano didn't deserve to be murdered by those unchanged vocals. The guitar work is lovely too! Another recent one that was weird was how better the music video version of Orphans was, compared to the studio version; so much so that I replaced it on my playlist. The first half is super acoustic and beautiful and Moses' voice just makes it "work" somehow.
  12. This guy sums up VLV and oldplay perfectly. He also talks about how glorious Rainy Day is which I found very true indeed! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPuW1_1lvb0 (By the way we used to be able to embed Youtube videos before but I can't fathom how to do it now)
  13. Oh it was glorious! I genuinely felt I was gifted the pleasure of having my favorite band doing exactly what I had wanted of them for many many years. If they had toured that album I would have gone bankrupt from trying to attend every single show possible. I find it extremely bizarre when people say they couldn't have toured EL. As if every great rock band's concert is a Disney fest!
