  1. When I read Max Martin produced this track, I was like, "Oh god, oh no." I'm happy that I can ear my words. The snippets really did a good job of disguising the rest of the song. It's certainly poppy, but not overwhelmingly so. The production is legitimately super good, and the final bridge really amplifies the song. Super happy with it; already on my third listen!
  2. I’m not sure why you think every piece of music has to be revolutionary to be good.
  3. Exactly my thoughts. I have a lot of hope for the album now.
  4. That's what I thought too. The production is much better than MX—that's always been my biggest complaint with MX, it sounds muddled—and it has that sort of eclectic energy HLH has.
  5. Yeah, I'm a fan. I was skeptical with Max Martin producing, but this seems to be a very good mix of Coldplay and his pop-heavy style. If I had to guess, the singles will be dream pop, and I bet the other tracks are space rock (or in a similar vein). I don't love the lyrics, but I knew that when the lyrics were first being teased. It's not a big deal. Really excited for next Friday.
  6. I've had this in the back of my head for years. I so badly want this to come to fruition.
  7. With all due respect, what you’re predicting about their future goes against their press for Everyday Life. They repeatedly said they did not care how well or poorly the album did. They’ve passed the days where they’re making music to ‘please’ their label. This past era was not created in hopes of sparking a big success; it was purposefully tuned down to a polarizing, abstract degree. Coldplay is doing whatever they want now. I have no doubt in my mind they’re going to still accidentally make hits, but that’s much different from producing an entire album with pop in mind.
  8. I’m way, way behind on all of this, so excuse the curiosity: When was Rescue Street recently mentioned? I thought I wasn’t out of the loop, but I digress.
  9. I cannot get over how great of a song this is. On my first listen, it was in my bottom three songs — and now it’s in my top three. Legitimately solid song.
  10. I've also thought they realized their mistake with Parachutes and AROBTTH. I'm certain Pitchfork was one of the few negative voices who downplayed AROBTTH upon release, and like you said, it's like they're trying to maintain the same demeanor as a result. By their standards, AROBTTH and Viva, and now Everyday Life, should be at least 8.0-9.0.'s. I wish they'd re-review albums from time to time, especially once one has been out for so long.
  11. Hey now, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is a masterpiece. That album deserved every bit of critical acclaim it received. That said, their rating system is bad. I’ll never understand it.
  12. Why do we care about this still? It’s hilariously unfair to deem a band “second rate” based on record sales.
  13. I posted this elsewhere, but here are my first impressions. I avoided leaks like the plague in hopes I could walk into this evening like it was Christmas Eve. I was petrified I would unintentionally overhype the album, yet here I am with my jaw on the floor. Words escape me in trying to articulate just how remarkable this album is. Whereas I found issues to nitpick quietly with every album post-Viva, this one has me appreciating every aspect of the album. As so many of you said had said when the album leaked, there truly isn’t a bad song on the album. There are a few I have yet to fully
  14. The current Metacritic score is 75, based on 8 reviews. Most notably, Metacritic selected Everyday Life as their Editor's Pick for music on their front page. It's the first picture you see! The blurb attached is: "The band's new double album is a major improvement over 2015's A Head Full of Dreams."
  15. I want them to make the music they want to make too. I suppose what I was getting at with my original post is that we shouldn’t assume they’re going to revert to their heavy pop days, you know? Of course, I could be wrong, but their future could still be quite bright. Also I need them to make their own label.
  16. Why are you jumping the gun with so much anger? I’m tired of this forum maintaining the ideal that mainstream music = terrible. Every album prior to this one has technically been mainstream, including the first three albums. You should wait and see what it’s going to be instead of getting angry at the thought of a hypothetical.
  17. Great review! How would you rank the albums after your first listen?
  18. I am! I’ve read some reviews but that’s enough for me until the 22nd.
  19. I'm not listening, so maybe you'll be able to help me out. What does everyone mean by 'snippets?' Did something get released I hadn't known about?
  20. I think it’s just they wanted to make shorter songs. They’ve made it clear they’re no longer trying to win affection or popularity. They’re making what they want to make.
  21. That’s the opposite of what the song is about.
