  1. Fair enough! However, I think another reason it works for me is because it is only 2:30. It goes by so quickly that it succeeds in not crossing the line between 'buildup' and 'boring'.
  2. That's kinda what I like about it though. Chris's more muted, low-key delivery until the last chorus makes the release that much sweeter—it feels like a sigh of relief almost.
  3. here are my thoughts about two listens in: it's pretty fantastic. 8/10 sunrise: stunning, perhaps it's a tad long but the strings sound so gorgeous i couldn't really care less church: maybe a touch too repetitive but i dig the production on this one, and the tune is nice enough trouble in town: banger, in contrast from a lot you here, i think the police sample is f***ing fantastic and pushes the song to a visceral sort of space. only complaint is that i wish the distorted guitar in the bridge was louder...why is the guitar getting hidden in the mix all the time??? brokEn: also in contra
  4. live version is much much better. it feels more alive and dynamic.
  5. i doubt it, it’s a very common latin word used in music quite often.
  6. the new track is very meh. it just doesn’t go anywhere or do much of anything, and the message and “hook“ are very on the nose. however i think it’s gonna make way more sense in context since it’s the last track of the record. i’m suspecting the second to last track is bombastic and all that was expected to happen at the end of everyday life and then everyday life closes out the album in a short/sweet and refreshing way. don’t know why they released this as a single though.
  7. i just really hope they deliver on this one. i just finished watching the weekly best/worst tracks video by anthony fantano (theneedledrop) and he put arabesque in the best tracks of the week segment. while talking about the track he expressed a feeling that i really resonated with: while i’m super excited for a new album, 16 tracks just means more chance for them to drop some duds. i’m reaaaally hoping they just come out with a fantastic record that unites the community again and gets them good critical success. i just want them to blow me away like they used to.
  8. Someone gets it! Hahaha. Your words ring true...for those who don’t quite get the astounding nature of this collaboration, it’s like if the Bee Gees teamed up with Phillip Glass and Miles Davis. Or something to that effect.
  9. holy....for people not familiar with jacob collier he’s kind of known in music academia and jazz as somewhat of a genius. his voice is wonderful and his knowledge of music theory is greater than probably 99% on the planet. jacob also has a fantastic handle on pitch and harmony; he has jazzy covers where he sings in the key of g half sharp. this is so exciting to hear that coldplay worked with him!
  10. there you go again. making me excited. just imagine
  11. i mean it’s different and great and all for them but we’re still dealing with coldplay here, not aphex twin. i will say though i agree with annie mac; this sort of pop isn’t similar to anything out at the moment, it’s really unique in that sense while also being unique for coldplay, which is great.
  12. that’s what i got from it as well. and the vibe of the song represents how they want to feel, and it’s all a “i want to be happy and distracted from the tragedies of war, so i’m gonna party like there’s no tomorrow” kind of song. plus, knowing chris’s public persona, and what the band has stood for since their inception (free trade, love not war, etc.) i doubt the lyrics are flippant in any way.
