  1. Might be that YouTube Premium is not available in your country. :( https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6307365
  2. Here's the BBC morning interview, that someone uploaded to YouTube
  3. Although everyone has their right for opinion, then some reviews often give me the feeling, that reviewers are trying waaaaay too much to show-off their position as music critic and their "talents" to write smartass sophisticated crap. :laughing: But that's what they're paid for - to provoke controversy. Still, most of reviews are nice to read.
  4. Can anyone read the review from musicOMH already? Thought there might be some country or timezone restrictions or something, because I couldn't open The Line of Best Fit's review either.
  5. Here you go, seems like a 5/5 review. Probably the first official rating from press or did I miss something? https://www.telegraph.co.uk/music/what-to-listen-to/coldplay-everyday-life-review-16-heart-on-sleeve-songs-one-greatest/
  6. Yes, I'm quilty of checking out the leak... The information I'm sharing here isn't really related to music, so I thought it's ok to share it here for some discussion. There's a photo of album's leaflet. The start of the sentence isn't visible, but it's probably something like "...% of all proceeds from this album will go to global reforestation efforts".
  7. This is Steve Hackman's Beethoven vs Coldplay symphony. Google it. Nothing to do with LP8. :)
  8. My opinion: Coldplay's "Imagine"! But let's get to there.... It's just a nice and beautiful little song, which closes the album. It has a really classic Coldplay feel to it, production is complete and not overdone. It's not going to be the big hit single in the current music scene and being the last song of the album, it probably is supposed to work much better after listening the whole album. Lack of climax? At first I felt the same with for example Always in my Head. I think we are associating Coldplay too much with massive climaxes and wait for these to happen, getting a bit disappointed when song just ends simply. Every song doesn't need to have a climax. Imagine by John Lennon has climax? - No... In a way Everyday Life actually is very similar to Imagine actually for me. Just a simple down-to-earth song, which is not trying to be anything more. P.S. I'm not trying to say you should literally compare these two songs now, because Imagine is something legendary and saint, but the way Everyday Life and Imagine deliver the message, feels very similar for me.
  9. This is a surprise release certainly... What I really like about this song, is that the whole atmosphere of the song is reflecting and supporting the lyrics perfectly. The beauty of this song relies on the good production and mix, which you can enjoy only on a good audio system. The progression of the song and instruments coming in throughout the song is really really good. I liked each element of this song and in live performance it may sound even more pure. In conclusion, it's a beautiful song, produced perfectly. It won't be a hit and it isn't the goal for this song, but certainly it's one of the nicest Coldplay songs, showing the real depth of Coldplay again. It might be the most progressive song from Coldplay and I have always been waiting them to write more long and progressive songs.
  10. Agreeing with that. Reviews are only critics' opinion, not the truth, but when there is many of same opinions, it becomes a truth. After giving to the album a bit more listens, I have to say, all that criticism is justified for this album and i'm not expecting really reviews with high ratings. Although it feels nice and fun album in some moments, musically it's not reaching really to the levels it could and it's not entirely the Stargate's fault. Firstly, I think there is missing a song which could become a classic. Hymn for the Weekend was supposed to be the important song, but let's be honest, it's quite a mess musically. It's fun and dancey, but it won't be something like Paradise, Viva la Vida, Clocks, Yellow, Fix You. And also Adventure of a Lifetime won't something huge. Also there is a certain feel like there is no depth in most of these songs. Something is really putting me off with this album, not sure what it is. There are some songs which really have the potential to be great, but they're not as great as they could. Although, in live these songs are feeling nice! Maybe that's the thing, these songs really give you a good feeling in concert, but listening and hoping for some quality music with depth can make you frustrated this time. I'm sure these songs sound really great live, even the ones we haven't heard live yet. So with all the old songs and new songs combined together they can play a great show. Anyone who has the opportinity to go to the show, shouldn't think twice.
  11. The Guardian has now given 6/10 to each Coldplay album, i think :D
  12. He's not playing piano, to be honest this song sounds a bit messy live :D haha
  13. Charlie Brown after Everglow makes sense! You give me this feeling, this everglow - we'll be glowing in the dark! haha
  14. Yes, for me Depression Cherry by Beach House works well as background music, especially while studying late at nights. A Head Full of Dreams works well when trying to listen to something which gets you up and motivated, or while surfing internet or something and especially well on Fridays after school or work. :D
  15. It's good to see so large variety of opinions. Some people liking the album, some disliking and the reasons are very different also. It just shows that this is quite controversial album and has so much different music on it. All i want to say right now that if you approach to this album with knowing that mostly it was written around Hymn for the Weekend and AHFOD (title track), then you probably feel different about the whole album. Similar as Paradise and Charlie Brown were centrepieces in MX and with VLVoDAHF i think they wrote it around Lost! and Viva la Vida. So considering that a lot of production and also the choice of songs is affected how they decided make Hymn for the Weekend one of the centrepieces, will be the key to approach to this album. For example Up&Up's production on the album is a lot affected of Hymn, and also X Marks the Spot doesn't make sense at all without Hymn etc. Generally i feel like this album sounds a lot better when played loudly (someone said that above already), it brings out the Stargate's production in much better way. Also this will be the album which sounds the most different while performed in live. And about Hymn For The Weekend... I'm still unsure though what to think of HFTW from musical perspective, but i have to admit i felt similar for example about Viva la Vida for a long time (now i think it's great song in live, but i never really listen to it). First time i listened to HFTW, it was literally too much to take in, because it's quite massive and diverse in sound. After getting used to it, I think it's an immersive song. With each time i connect and understand this song more and more. Definitely want to dance to it while being drunk at party. :D And one interesting thought also... I think Every Teardrop is a Waterfall would sound really great instead of Adventure of a Lifetime on this album.
