  1. You make a good point, and after listening to the album a few times, it makes sense as a break between two very emotionally dark tracks. The only thing I would say is that after hearing the album in its entirety a few times, I'm hearing "BrokEn" as a really cool bonus track style song at the end of the album. It's pretty uplifting, and I think after the 'Hallelujah' of "Everyday Life" the track, it would be a really good track a la "Death Will Never Conquer" type track. In fact, Proskpekt's March plays out just like that with a track like "Now My Feet Won't Touch the Ground", which is one of m
  2. I'm excited for the prospect that we might get some unreleased old stuff repurposed for this album, like "Arabesque".
  3. This is so exciting! I love Jacob and his music. He is a musical genius and it will be amazing to see his arrangements become a part of Coldplay's sound. For those of you who have never heard of Jacob, definitely check out his music, especially his most recent work "Djesse Vol.2". It has some killer tracks on there, and he explores a wide variety of arrangements and genres. I'm looking forward to seeing their genius at work.
  4. i didn’t notice that good catch! I think it’s hard for someone in the mix process to miss that, so I think it might be intended but I could be wrong. The hand percussion you hear in the chorus has a similar sound signature and could have been used as a way of transitioning between verse and chorus. The entire song seems really well made but has small things like this that seem out of place but don’t bother you if you don’t focus on them, like the way the “boom boom ka “ comes in and ends the song. I really love the interlude around 2 minutes, just that in itself gives such deep emotions that
  5. Coldplay is back! Seems like Coldplaying is booming yet again in preparation for another album. I want to take advantage of this and try to get this game going again! We can finish this bracket and start a new bracket with the new songs (!) once music is released. We are 9 votes away from the next pool! If you have voted already, try to get others from the forums to join in! Here's who has voted already: laxwatcher (me), @IcebatofvalikinRRBZ8 , @I ran away , @Zero Theory , @Gideon_Mx , @cp3176 We need 9 more votes to reach the minimum of 15 for this pool to be decided!
  6. A vintage Coldplay album a la "The Goldrush" and "Ghost Story" combined with electronics of "Midnight" and funkiness of AOAL and style of "All Your Friends" would be amazing for me. This feels more like what "Ghost Stories" should have been, and I hope it is.
  7. ALBUM IS OUT GUYS! Would love to hear your thoughts, and share with friends, family, and fellow Coldplayers!!!
  8. We need 9 more votes from Coldplayers to move to the next pool. If you've already voted you must wait until the next round. Let's get this game running so we can build our bracket!
  9. Let's continue with Pool C! Rank these songs from favorite to least favorite. Each player can only rank once and we need 15 Coldplayers to tally and move on to the next pool. 1. Birds 2. Warning Sign 3. See You Soon 4. A Message 5. Wish I Was Here (feat. Cat Power) 6. X Marks the Spot
  10. It has been a long time since I was back on this thread. Forgot how great this bracket was! We've got to keep this one going! So just to reiterate the rules to everyone. I will post a pool of songs and each Coldplayer makes a post ranking each of them from favorite to least favorite (1-6). I add up the points at the end and the top three with the least points (highest rankings) move on to the bracket round. Pool B has been decided! Yes has narrowly beaten out Prospekt's March and Up With the Birds and The Hardest Part barely misses the cut to make it to the bracket rounds... Tough way t
  11. Thank you! I wish you luck in your process of finishing your album and will definitely give you a follow back if you follow me on Soundcloud, Facebook, etc. The links are all on my website or Soundcloud.
  12. Hey everyone, UPDATE --------------------------- Album is out in the world!!!

  14. Don't worry I will go through the licensing process for the Escapist cover. Glad you liked it!
  15. Hey guys, It has been a long time since I've been on here (and a long time since Coldplay has released an album...) and I have some really exciting news to share. I have been working on this for the past couple of years and I think it's finally coming together! I'm hoping to release my debut album, entitled "Flight" later this year, but for now I have a preview of the first single and another track off the album. It's got a lot of different influences but the largest one is definitely Coldplay. I hope you enjoy and please share with friends and family and give me a follow on social media (w
  16. Hey everybody! It's been a while since I came on this thread. I've sorely missed talking with all of you about Coldplay. :( I'm really excited to hear the Kaleidoscope EP, but I'm even more excited because for the past year I've been working with my band to record and release our first album. This has been my dream for years and years (highly inspired by Coldplay and the way they captivate you with their music and artistry), so I would really appreciate it if you all listened to and shared our record. Would also love to get your feedback on here! Our first single was released yesterday,
  17. Summer - Calvin Harris Also, shameless plug here :P My band just released a single and accompanying music video. We have an album coming out on June 10th and could use your support. Hope you like the song, and if you do, please stay tuned for the rest of the album!
  18. It has been a long time since I was on here! Would love to get this game started again. We just need one more new Coldplayer to vote and we can start the next pool!
  19. Yes so we need more people to make their votes. Without at least 15 coldplayers voting it makes no sense to play.
  20. So there are pools of songs that go up against one another. We rank the songs from our favorite to least favorite 1-6. Then once at least 15 people vote we tally it up and the three songs with the least points (best scores) move on to the bracket round.
  21. We need 10 more votes to get to the next pool.
  22. Hey guys. New to the pub here. :) I've been busy working on a new album, with a new single out on Bandcamp right now. I'm hoping to have it more widely distributed in the future, so please give it a listen and share if you'd like :D [MEDIA=bandcamp]album_id=4084104772[/MEDIA] Mobile Link: https://escapist515.bandcamp.com/album/another-dawn
