  1. I guess it's something at least I have written about before. Guitar music from mainstream is disappearing recently and that reflects in Coldplay's music as well. Other sounds (often electronic) just inspire bands and musicians a bit more. But actually on this album, I'm still impressed by some of the guitar sounds and the way Jonny uses guitar. In a lot of songs still you get this feel that his glistening guitar sound ties everything together. And yes in studio mix it's often a bit buried, but in live mix his playing is definitely more audible. For example Let Somebody Go in live - t
  2. I see there's definitely some room for additional locations in the middle of North America leg and also in the middle of Europe leg. I doubt that they want to just waste these periods for taking a break. Also of course full leg of South America and Australia etc. But let's not forget there is such a long time to go still, we never know what would actually happen next year. If everything goes well, we could probably see another round of legs with different locations in 2023. I decided to go to Paris. Although it takes a little bit to travel there, I thought I should finally visit Paris and
  3. It seems like overall outcome will be quite similar to AHFOD. MOTS will be the album critics like to criticise intensively a little bit more than it actually deserves. It's easier to do that, than see and write about some positives. Criticising big bands feels always great and intriguing. But in the end Coldplay with the next tour will again deliver one of the best live shows in the world. I can see most of the new songs working great in stadium environment with visual effects. Anyway I think overall it's big step up from AHFOD, which for me gets quite boring and unimpressing halfway
  4. Been listening to leak, quilty. Since everyone already discusses and writes about it, I'm adding a few thoughts. To start with, this album feels like a great journey and it flows surprisingly well, although it's quite eclectic. Definitely the concept of this album is very strong. Starting with with very high energy MotS->Higher Power->Humankind and then middle part is exploring some pretty diverse places and styles. Infinity Sign taking us into more dreamy and ethereal frequencies and then going into heavenly Coloratura. But oh that production! It's about the taste if people l
  5. They probably just get lost in the Spheres and find it difficult to get back to our Solar System.
  6. Asking if it leaked won't help. If it leaks properly then don't worry you will hear about it immediately. Anyone wants to do some research and find out leak date for each previous album? I think this is the record indeed with three days to go until the release without leak.
  7. I just like this "Parental advisory explicit content" sticker. I wonder if the story about certain era ending with AHFOD means our boys finally felt they are now old enough to drop some f-bombs in their songs.
  8. Based on what I have heard so far (full songs and clips) I think that this album is going to be surprisingly good, Production and mixing seems constantly great and varied. And it seems like they have done album, where each song is going to distinctively stand out on its own. That's a great thing, this concept is strong, probably stronger than Mylo, but it's not quite achieving Mylo level overall. It's certainly better than AHFOD, but Mylo, Viva, A Rush of Blood, Parachutes and Everyday Life have more this raw songwriting quality. I kind of feel like MoTS is certainly lacking a bit this pure so
  9. I wouldn't say there's zero percent probability of this being a single. This song exists and is on the album, so there already is more chance than that. As I wrote before "if someone gave it a chance", it could be quite interesting as single. Definitely it would stand out more than some ballad or another synth pop song. Especially if they promote it smartly with a great video. I think it's more about their record label in this case, if they want to let Coldplay have such single, because for record label with each album Coldplay is a certain kind of product, which they try to put into certain b
  10. Everyone is speechless after Coloratura live performance on Howard Stern? Guys, that deserves some discussing!πŸ˜€ This performance seemed like a band exam. Firstly it's such a complex piece of music and secondly everything was filmed up close and live. They delivered it perfectly. The live arrangement of the song is just amazingly done and let's them play their hearts out. It's up there as one of the most beautiful band performances ever. Next goal: seeing this live in personπŸ™‚
  11. Wow, that's a great and unique sounding song. In contrary to My Universe, which is playing it quite safe and be a simple K-Pop hit. I got a feeling that it's one of those songs, which could become a surprise hit, if someone gave it a chance. It's rhythmically really catchy and full of unique memorable twists and sections. Love this production of rhythm sections and Will's big sounding drums and Chris has really thought through how to perform it... Those moves are just ridiculously authentic and cool. Can't wait to hear the studio version. I'm afraid it will be probably less raw
  12. For sure it will be arranged a bit differently for live performance. Although the complexity of this song makes me a bit worried too, I see a lot of ways how to make killer live performance out of it. And I totally see Jonny playing some synths live, maybe even Guy as well. There have been quite a lot songs before that, where they figured out a great live version and I doubt that they let complexity of studio version to be an obstacle to play this great song live. I might be wrong, but I totally feel that Will saying in Greg James interview "his favourite song will be played in some form"
  13. It's difficult to compare openers and closers separately. They all work in the album context really well. From openers Politik and Square One are the best songs for me. But considering how openers work in stadium concert setlist, I think it's a tie between AHFOD and MX/Hurts Like Heaven - both are really effective and work well with visuals. Politik is the opener with the most depth and quality, but it doesn't let the band to connect to crowd that easily. AHFOD does a great job with involving the audience already on 2nd or 3rd minute of the concert + this legendary jump by Chris! It seem
  14. Okay, I didn't get that feeling though. For me there is no way My Universe is Will's favourite song of these new ones and I can't see anything about My Universe, what makes them say like it's special and very different.
  15. Any ideas, when we might get to see this song performed live? Anyone knows what was the not broadcasted secret song they performed for BBC Big Weekend? From the interview with Greg James it seems like at the end of the set they were going to play some new song instead of Life Is For Living. I'm just wondering if it was Coloratura and if will be able to see it anytime. It will be exciting to see, how it's arranged for live performance and of course hear some bits from Jonny higher up in mix.
  16. I think Max Martin is best for Coldplay right now. There's a reason why he's so successful and a lot of people don't actually realise exactly why. He might seem like a pop producer and pop songwriter, but he's so much more. He actually started in rock music and his versatility is actually limitless, in studio he is allround great, because he is actually good at engineering and mixing too, but he doesn't do that much himself anymore. I think it's a great opportunity for him as well to work with a band and prove through Coldplay that he's very versatile. And it's very important they have someone
  17. I thought this "PM me" culture is forbidden. Are all the moderators on Coloratura now? πŸ€”
  18. Which song? Coloratura is a symphony πŸ˜€ I mean, I appreciate you could find a number to rate it. For me honestly Coloratura isn't something to give ratings to, it's too unique.
  19. I think they really did something big here. The progression of it is quite unexpected and totally unique. They really showed their depth here. Amazing symphony. Not much to say, in my opinion this is their greatest song so far.
  20. It will be very interesting to see how It will progress. With such long songs the magic is in progression and how it is built up. I just hope it's not too good, because from my experience when I listen to a really great 10 minute song many times, time goes really fast. Just kidding, I'm ready to listen it until the morning or until I just fall asleep while listening. πŸ˜€ But some long songs... Of course I like lots of these, but some of which I listen right now: Mew - Comforting Sounds Then of course Jon Hopkins has some good ones. For expample Open Eye Signal. Nils Fr
  21. Since all of it is a speculation, here's a plot twist... We already had volume 2 with all the versions and performances of Higher Power. πŸ™‚ Anyway, it's nice to see that Coldplay is giving us material for endless speculations and discussions to keep Coldplayers' minds busy. Can't wait to find out about the other volumes of MotS. Also I guess, with Max Martin included in songwriting process, more of the ideas could find their way to fully formed songs, so it's no wonder if they have been very productive and have music for more than one album. Not long to go until we can listen to Color
  22. I think it won't matter on macro scale at all. It is getting hyped in a circle of hardcore fans. Full leak doesn't change much, because it still will not be easily accessible. Most of the people these days would prefer a comfortable listen, not searching for music on suspicions websites. So I don't see Coldplay and their record label letting this situation blackmail them to change the release schedule.
  23. Anyone else thought that on Friday we are getting 10 minutes and 18 seconds of new music... That's almost like 3 Higher Powers in length. πŸ€”
  24. Holy moly, I dreamed of Coloratura being a prog rock with epic outro, let this be true please
