  1. https://www.albumoftheyear.org/ratings/worst/2021/ MOTS is at #3 now.
  2. Well, they look at it from a sales perspective. they want to get people to buy it who haven't bought it yet. With the BTS remix and orchestral version it's obvious who they're targeting with this. And their own fans might buy a digital copy on top of the physical copies they had purchased before. It probably works in driving sales. And that's why they'll continue to do this.
  3. It works the other way too. sometimes we might rate a song higher than we would if it was a different artist simply because the band and their previous work means something to us. For example, some people say some of the new songs are not so great musically but will probably work very well in concert, so overall they rate those songs higher than they would without a live show in mind that they get excited about. But perhaps a really strong song, such as Clocks, will always sound great no matter where you are when you're listening to it. Probably if you ask a large enough number of pe
  4. I agree that some critics are quite harsh in their reviews, and that's not constructive. If I try to put myself in their shoes, there's also a limit to how much they can cover in a review if they want people to actually read their articles, so sometimes they won't elaborate enough or cover everything. Then again, completely dismissing or even deflecting any criticism isn't constructive either. People might have valid points about the quality of the songwriting, lyrics, production etc on MOTS. Most people aren't just "hating", "trolling" or "stuck in the past", the vast majority of review
  5. Spotify have published their stats for 15th October. US top 200: #12 LSG, #25 MU UK top 200: #20 MU, #21 LSG, #59 HP, #111 Yellow, #119 Humankind , #168 POTP, #175 HH, #196 Alien Choir In comparison, stats for launch day of EL: US top 200: #136 Champion of the World UK top 200: #45 Orphans, #61 Champion of the World, #127 Church, #136 Sunrise, #139 Daddy, #157 Trouble in Town, #165 Arabesque, #198 Everyday Life These are the 2 countries where most of the promo took place, source: https://spotifycharts.com/.
  6. I don't understand how they've been posting daily on socials lately but not actually shared info on launch times or confirmed whether LSG is a single or not. It launched midnight in Australia I believe so should be midnight in Italy and everywhere else too.
  7. Is LSG officially the next single then? I saw there'll be a premiere for a lyrics video on YouTube in around 9.5 hours, and only for that song...
  8. Looks to me like that person on Twitter is a retailer? They might be using different warehouses to fulfil those orders?
  9. Yes, the Berlin concert will be shown on German TV (Prosieben) at some point I think and should also be available on their website afterwards.
  10. True. Theoretically, rather than using a machine they could just have other people signing. Not saying that's what happened, I just don't think we can really know.
  11. The shop team/label/band would never confirm it even if it was fake. At the end of the day you either trust that it's authentic or you don't. Unless you see them signing it in person there's no way of knowing for sure.
  12. I think Viva and fix you from their Berlin show are my favourite performances so far this era. The crowd seemed super engaged and the band looked SO excited. Really fun to watch!
  13. I think with Selena as a featuring artist a Billboard #1 is not as much of a given as it was with BTS. Her album sales seem to be a lot stronger than her singles. But I think Selena has been quite successful in the latin music industry lately? It looks like that could be Coldplay's new target after BTS helped them chart in the US/CA/Asia. On that list that they published on social media a while ago Chris also promoted J Balvin. Maybe that's another upcoming collab too.
  14. From the snippet it sounds quite draggy to be honest. I'm not really seeing the similarity with everglow yet other than it being a piano ballad.
  15. Yup, and I feel the same about their HP performances too. 😉
  16. I actually want them to change things up more!After all, they've been stuck in collab mode for about 10 years already and a pop tune isn't much of a novelty from them. 😛
  17. Probably. The HP performances were also playback so that's standard with them these days.
  18. Some of the Korean verses also sound like some of the rap parts from Kiss Me More.
  19. I think you should be fine. It says on that website that orders are fulfilled by LiveNation Merchandise and they're also fulfilling Coldplay store orders (according to their Terms & Conditions). So it sounds like it's more or less the same thing, just different websites and a way for EU fans to order from the US warehouse!🙂 What really surprises me though is that the item is still available for US at all since it's limited to 5000 and was launched a few days ago already.
  20. I think it's similar to the Chainsmokers collab, if anything it's more of a cash grab. They've been marketing this collab quite well, talking about shared values etc. But at the end of the day BTS are very much a brand. They have an incredibly long list of brand deals under their belt, more than I've ever seen with any other artist. It's quite impressive actually, but those deals are made because they're very lucrative. It's not all about their music or their values. I always liked how Coldplay mostly stayed away from such deals and focused on their music instead as well as projects like the M
  21. I predict it'll have more views than Coloratura in about 1-2 hours and will surpass HP within a week if not sooner.
  22. I think that probably people compare this song to SJLT because it's another major collab that Coldplay did and it's also one of their most poppy songs too. Anyway, other songs we could perhaps compare MU to otherwise: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJO3ROT-A4E&list=PLyORnIW1xT6wBFoOxTh__8a3dFzbgHYrw&index=2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvQTTA9raJU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPYZpwSpKmA
