  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Why do we care about this still? It’s hilariously unfair to deem a band “second rate” based on record sales.
  5. 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 connect with, but they aren’t bad in the slightest. This is the album Coldplay has been capable of for years, and now that we have it, I’m nothing short of stunned. I understand how polarizing it may be to some, but that’s why I love it. It’s raw, messy and genuine. Favorite tracks so far, in no particular order: Trouble in Town, Éko, Champion of the World, Guns, Church, Arabesque, Cry Cry Cry. I feel very comfortable placing this in my top three Coldplay albums. The album is everything I wanted it to be and more.
  6. The band has no right being this cool without effort
  7. 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."
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Great review! How would you rank the albums after your first listen?
  11. I am! I’ve read some reviews but that’s enough for me until the 22nd.
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. That’s the opposite of what the song is about.
  15. But there’s only one interlude, so there’s 15 full songs.
  16. I want to wed every second of this song.
  17. I wanna kiss the band on the lips rn
  18. As I said on Reddit earlier today, Orphans is about as close to perfect indie pop as you can get. Unlike MX, Ghost Stories and AHFOD, the pop Orphans carries just sounds so damn clean. It’s true to itself and doesn’t try to create a phony level of emotion in a song that carries a bittersweet message. My biggest complaint for me currently is that it feels too short, like something’s missing. That, and there are two very clear mixing errors at the beginning and around 1:46. I hope they’re fixed by next month.
  19. I feel the same way. Their lead singles have long been accurate depictions of the album as a whole, and today’s songs brought me so much more anticipation than what I was expecting. They’re entering an entirely new creative stage of their careers.
  20. Has there been an era that’s signaled such an artistically drastic turn as Everyday Life has brought so far? Arabesque is absolutely mind-blowing, and I should clarify just the thought of listening to Arabesque again and again and again gets me all riled up. It’s bold, it’s full of energy and life, and it doesn’t hold back on message or sound. The band has done what longterm, new and non-fans assumed was in the past: reinvention. I’m absolutely fucking giddy for the album.
  21. Absolutely. I’m psyched for what seems like a political undertone album-wide. They’ve slightly addressed this on occasion, but now it seems to be their *theme*. I love it.
  22. Woah, I missed a lot. Cannot wait for this to release. I’ve wanted them to do a double album for a very, very long time.
  23. There’s zero chance they’re making a global marketing campaign for a reworked compilation album. It’s new material, I promise you.
  24. Having Timbaland produce one song doesn’t mean the album isn’t experimental.
  25. FINALLY Put me on the ‘I’m already a fan’ list
