  1. I quite read a lot of your post lately and I just have to say: I probably should leave the forum because you find exactly always the words which describe my opinion perfectly! I also really dig Ink...nice fresh tune on the album!

    True Love

    I also don't like the verse to much to be honest, but as soon as the songs really starts after 2 minutes it is a gorgeous piece of work! I really, really like this song. For me under the top4 of the album.
  3. I just heard the songs besides Magic, Midnight and ASFOS for the first time now after streaming...for me, it is really hard to say which songs are the best. I'll try it though. The best ones are clearly Always in my Head, Midnight and O for me. 1. Always in my head: Such a nice and warm opener. Perfectly produced. Simplistic yet nice lyrics. I just hoped they would make the song a bit longer and the end is a bit to abrupt for me. 9.5/10. 2. Midnight: I cannot believe how much the song grew on my. I always found it interesting listening to it, but especially in the last two weeks an
  4. I now also heard Ghost Stories for the first time, after never listening to AIMH and all the rest. Only heard Magic, Midnight and A sky full of stars before and nothing else. To be quite honest...i overall like the album, it is really understated most parts and with all going on around Chris personal life I totally understand the direction they have taken. For me it is no Viva, but I never expected such a beautiful piece of work again after all the MX stuff appeared. So I'm quite happy if the band brings out a album I don't have to be ashamed of like I felt after MX to be quite hones
  5. Are there any chances the stream is cut into the different songs and uploaded here somewhere (no worries, I'll buy the album anyway!).
  6. Oh interesting that they open at 4pm. Hopefully its allright if I'm going inside around 5:30... I
  7. Wann sollte man denn kommen, um einen vernünftigen Stehplatz zu bekommen? Ab wann lassen sie denn die Leute überhaupt rein? ------------------ Do you know when you should be there to get a nice place? When are the doors open?
  8. There are too many very very positive reviews from really serious sources to say something like that.
  9. Pitchfork is another source which gives the album a good mark with regard to the other album marks. Interesting that most reviews of serious media are very positive on Mylo Xyloto (BBC, Financal Times, some German high quality media etc...). Very interesting and shows that the album isn't just pop and mainstream.
  10. I don't see the point. Because I think the reviews are quite mixed - which everyone expected. The album is so different to anything before so its natural that there will be divided reactions on it. My iTunes store gives the album 4.5/5 stars and nearly 1000 people already voted. A lot of serious media like BBC, Financial Times, some other british printmedia, and for example some german high quality media like FAZ or "Deutschlandfunk" are very positive about Mylo. It seems that the more sophisticated media really like Mylo. And it the end, it doesn't matter what other people say if you like
  11. There are some serious critics, some unserious ones. Especially the sophisticated sites are really positiv about Mylo Xyloto, also in Germany. Often the more unserious papers like DailyMail are really harsh. I don't see that the majority of the critics is bad, really. I mostly read positive reviews. Of course they are also some negative ones but taste is different and don't forget: Coldplay is the biggest band in the world - there will be always criticism no matter what they do.
  12. I really love the sound wall in the first part with the strings and synth (?) but nevertheless the second part is the perfect closer for the story of the album. You can imangine how the young pair walks across the television hand in hand and you can see the sun and in the background "good things are coming our way...". I especially love the transition between the two parts - its magic and I think its the mix between two halves which makes this song so brilliant!
  13. After some listenings and thinking about the minimalistic character and its purpose in the context of the story I want to give it a 8.5-9.0. It really grew on me. This song shows perfectly the emptiness after losing someone you love. Very nice but the first 10 seconds are a bit strange. The guitar of Jonny is great I think.
  14. Yeah, I see it the same way. This is serious criticism. Personally I want to say some words about Up in Flames. It seems like PoC is the song how Mylo and Xyloto broke down their relationship and Up in Flames is the song which describes the emptiness you feel when you loose someone who is very important for you. So, I personally find that the song couldn't be much better to describe this feeling. I'm very satisfied with this song now, but firstly I was also sceptical. Except the first 10 seconds its one of my favorite tracks of Coldplay now.
  15. The first ten seconds or so are really strange but than its a perfect song for someone who broke up his relationship and just feels nothing or emptiness. And this feeling covers the song. Great in a way...
