  1. Hey everyone! For those of you going, looks like we are in for a fun night. Walked past the Enmore earlier today and there was lots of roadies loading the equipment in. I'll be hanging out around the front from 4:15 onwards to get a good spot. Feel free to join me if you want! RhysBP

    O - your review

    To close off the album, listeners are treated to a surprising double bill. It’s only listed as being one song but don’t be fooled! There are two songs here to enjoy. The first one, Fly On, can be applied to one of my favourite sayings - “Less is best”. The main part of this song is Martin playing a gentle melody on the piano. After the optimistic A Sky Full Of Stars, the lyrics found here go back to a very melancholic state. The whole song is a metaphor about how love is like a flock of birds flying away. Touching but very sad. What I enjoy most about this song is the contribution from B
  4. Coldplay have always managed to create a show stopping number on each album that will stand the test of time - Yellow, Clocks, Fix You, Viva La Vida, Paradise. Ghost Stories’ candidate can be found in A Sky Full Of Stars. I am going to say this up front - this is the most positive song on the album. It almost seems out of place in the overall scheme of things but that doesn’t mean it’s a disappointing song. This is a song that is bound to get your out of your seat and dancing. Filled to the brim with pulsating EDM beats and a piano riff from another unlikely source in Avicii, Martin’s ly
  5. I find Oceans the most interesting song on the album. Unfortunately, like Ink, this song barely features Buckland and Berryman. Martin can again be heard on the acoustic guitar and the song can basically be made into a solo for him. However, through the power of his amazing falsetto, Martin delivers the most haunting melody on the album. This is backed up by some rather disconcerting lyrics - “I’m ready for it all love / Ready for the pain”. The eery vibes of the song are manfully assisted by three main components - Martin’s echoed vocals, the squealing fiddles of a string orchestra
  6. True Love may be quite sad but it’s nowhere as sad as Another’s Arms. Here, listeners get to listen to Martin moan on about how is lover has moved on with someone else. I’ll say right off the top that the lyrics in Another’s Arms sound quite amateur. The song features the same elements as some of the other songs on the album - electronic drums, idling synthesizers and the occasional piano. However, the main ‘star’ on this song is the pre-recorded voice of an anonymous female vocalist. Like the piano on the previous track, it helps bridge the verses. Seeing as this one of four songs he
  7. Having watched the Ghost Stories TV special, how is this performed live? I understand what Guy and Johnny are doing but what exactly is Will doing on the reactable?
  8. Launched before the release announcement of the album, Midnight is as far away from old Coldplay as the band can get. Built around a pre-existing track from producer Jon Hopkins, Midnights features no guitar, minimal drums and a very different vocal sound. Yet, the experiment works a treat. The song begins with the ticking of synthesizers that sound very foreboding before a heavily vocoded Martin chimes in with some rather dark lyrics. There aren’t a lot of lyrics in Midnight but you get the feeling this song is all about danger; just read the opening verse - “In the darkness before the da
  9. True Love would have to be one of the three best songs off the album. It can be compared to older Coldplay as it sees the band going back to pre-Viva days when strings wouldn’t make such a dominating presence. At first, the song sounds like it is continuing on with the upbeat vibe left over from Ink. However, as Martin takes centre stage, you can tell it’s going to be another story of separation agony. The chorus is made up of Martin asking his lover that even if she doesn’t love him, she should lie to him anyway. Ouch! From then on, you can tell that True Love is one of the saddest songs o
  10. I think a good game plan would be to play Ghost Stories in its entirety and include around 3-5 older songs. Having said that, I would love to hear the following songs come back... Politik A Rush Of Blood To The Head Daylight Square One Speed Of Sound Life In Technicolor ii Cemeteries Of London Lovers In Japan Strawberry Swing Major Minus A good set list would be... Always In My Head Magic Ink Clocks Another's Arms Lovers In Japan Midnight The Scientist True Love Charlie Brown Paradise ~ENCORE~ Oceans A Sky Full Of Stars O
