  1. So, this thread used to have more original music inspired by like-minded bands. So here's a song ..not so much inspired by Coldplay, maybe more U2 (think Rattle and Hum era) and Radiohead (texture especially at end of song sounds a bit Burn the Witch-ish) But yeah, I'm a musician living in the deep south (Alabama) and no one here locally likes any music I make. I do have some Coldplay inspired music on my Youtube channel as well. But today, I'm only ask you give this song a shot.. preferably in headphones since I have to mix that way. I also put together a video composed of different stre
  2. Probably not the most positive thing to post but I'm starting to feel this album won't be the one for me. It seems Coldplay has a pattern of being very poppy, then very artsy. One for them, the record label and all that, and then one for the band.. basically playing whatever they want. I like the artsy Coldplay. They got Max Martin to produce and that guy is responsible for just about every #1 hit in America but that's not really a good thing to me. In fact, one may argue that music here, at least in the top 50, has become very homogenized and all sounding very much similar to one another
  3. I still think Car Kids became Charlie Brown because they were CARtoon KIDS. 😀
  4. I made a song heavily influenced by my Coldplay roots. Sorry for the crappy angle on the camera. You can still see my fingers on the piano at least. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBdi7ezOFD0
  5. Hey guys, this is a song with many influences, but as you can tell from the title, Coldplay is a big one. Though, I discuss the song in detail in the link. I will say that I've worked on this song, on and off, for 2 years. So I'm super nervous about what people think, but here's why I really made this song.. I live in Alabama.. in the US. People here are, mostly older people here are.. conservative. They exist in a simpler time. I have friends and family that are almost gearing for war, stocking on guns, etc.. It's just sad because their reaction to gun violence is to get more gun
  6. From what I've seen from Tom's replies on twitter is that they never really broke up. They're just taking a break while he does some solo work that he thinks will help during his recovery process. As far as my favorites.. On a Day Like Today.. that song is just structured so right. It builds and builds.. beautiful. And there's many more ..Bedshaped is up there. They've made some great albums. Strangeland, I love that whole album.
  7. Yeah, I can't believe I didn't hear it in the video. In all fairness, it was after I had only heard the song one time. So, I feel this is probably the only collection of songs I could maybe use to win over a Radiohead fan with. I mean.. there's a ton of us that are fans of both.. but we all know a few Radiohead fans that hate everything about Coldplay. And what's weird is ..this seems to be one of the first collection of songs that were assembled much like a Radiohead album- with some songs dug way from the past. I'm glad they waited.. it did have a more organic MX sound to it o
  8. Ok.. since VLV ..hasn't Eno worked with them for every album (other than AHFOD)? I imagine some of the blowback from reviewers/fans of AHFOD has scared Coldplay back into Eno's arms. Luckily for all our sakes.
  9. I mean.. if you go back to the 2nd page of this thread, I think. I comment how I believe this song was going to be about this very thing. And how it was just a cheeky joke to use the A L I E N S spacing. (Which I also love)
  10. Totally disagree. I've always been so dumbfounded by Coldplay fan's love of 1- that song VLV, and 2- that album VLV. Do I like jamming to the live version of Lost? Uh, yeah. Do I like Strawberry Swing? Sure. But nothing on that album touches pre-X&Y Coldplay.. except maybe a spark in Ghost Stories.. it was a sliver, but it was there. And this album.. is finally, I think, Coldplay and Eno really melding into a vision of this band they've wanted for years.. since they've worked together. This is why Chris said before the release of AICTAIY, this is maybe his favorite group of Coldplay
  11. Seriously though.. I love this new Coldplay. I love it. 2:25 mark in this song.. so Parachutes!!! This is the closest we've ever gotten to this band tapping into their pre-X&Y perfection.
  12. I don't hear A L I E N S so much.. but 20 seconds before that particular song.. I do hear Chris start the melody with his acoustic to UFO from Mylo Xyloto. UFO.. Aliens.. so we're all hearing.. stuff.
  13. Hah, but how do you really feel? Hah, no I feel the exact same way.. the only sentiment I would change is to switch our feelings on AICTAIY with Hypnotised. Both great.. but the former is the king to me. At least all of the other collabs Coldplay have done so far feature melodic and catchy artists. Even The Chainsmokers, as repetitive, bland, and generic as their music is (admitting this despite how much I like them anyways), doesn't come nowhere near as close as terrible to modern day hip hop artists. And by the way, it's not that I dislike hip hop music. A lot of it before t
  14. No, here's what I think happened. They wrote a song that dealt with ...strangeness, being cut off from someone, etc.. normal stuff, really. And that's why it's called Aliens. But when writing out the songlist, someone (probably Will ..it usually is) thought it'd be funny to use the same capitalization and spacing as the movie. That's my prediction, anyway.
