Where might they be going with this? Hopefully something more interesting than 'Every Teardrop...'

I can't remember where I saw that

I had planned to buy their next album. as I enjoy casually listening to some Coldplay.  But then I heard Teardrop.  I told myself maybe it's a slow grower, and listened to it again.  It is seriously sounding like they are trying too hard and losing track of where they should go.

This. After VLV i was THRILLED to buy the new album day of release. Now? WOW not so sure i'm excited. I'll get it, but yea, not to excited, at all anymore. Here's to hoping ETIAW and the other 2 songs were just the sub-par b-side fodder songs not worthy of album contention.

Agreed.  I'm a Coldplay fan and loved VLV.  Its probably my favourite album of the last 5 years and have been looking forward to the next one.  But geez, ETIAW is atrocious.  The other new songs I've heard are an improvement on ETIAW but I'm hardly excited about any of them.  I hope I'm wrong but I'm getting a bad feeling about this album.

it's easily the most epic song Coldplay has put out, and has the potential to ROCK arenas. they needed a song like that! :)

Another against Teardrop! It's just too generic, there's nothing even remotely different or exciting about it.  ::) Not sure what to expect from the album - I enjoyed some of their old stuff, but got fed up with Coldplay with VLV.

I didn't need a song like that. I reckon just about everything off their first three albums is more epic than Teardrop.

Well, Coldplay obviously feel confident enough to play it as their last song at festivals  ;)

I didn't like it at first, especially as they stole the intro from another song but I like it now
especially the riff that Johnny plays.

Love Coldplay - Parachutes, Rush of Blood and Viva are brilliant albums - but chalk me up as another person who can't stand Teardrop; it's ridiculously cheesy, even for Coldplay (which is *really* saying something) and kinda dull. Plus the title of the song makes me gag.

Still looking forward to the new album though.

I can't remember where I saw that
Coldplay released a song called "Major Minus", and since Chris said that, people believed that would be the albums name.

But he also mentioned that the album title would have two words, first one beginning with M, and it would be hard to spell...

Doesn't make it "epic" at all. People just throw that word around way to much. Just cause you like it, doesn't make it "SO EPIC!!!"

Post by: AchtungPiano on July 28, 2011, 01:52:32 PM
its not "epic" just because I like it! The Scientist isn't epic, but its probably my favorite Coldplay song.

this one is a pump-up song, you can fist-pump to it, it has an intense ending, and who cares if the name is stupid? if the name meant the song was stupid, then The Smiths would be the worst band alive.  ::)

trust me. I didn't like it at first either. go running and listen to it. YOU WILL FEEL IGNITED.  :)

Teardrop ignites nothing. Give me Green Eyes or Daylight over that any day.  ;D

Green Eyes is nice, but not igniting. you can't get excited by that!  ::) Daylight's a good one though.  :)

you know what? I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that...whatever this new album is, it will be Coldplay's best. the 3 new songs are all mindblowing.

it may be their Achtung Baby.

I don't think we've really had their Joshua Tree, just one or two Unforgettable Fires! I'm certainly not going to write Coldplay off but it will have to be a lot better than what I'm hearing if it's going to beat Rush Of Blood....

I'm looking forward to the new album. Viva La Vida was stellar and finally saw the band branching out and taking some chances. I like what I've heard from the new album so far and it sounds like they're moving forward and trying new things.

Teardrop has grown on me, the other two are good as well. I'm looking forward to it, although I'm never looking forward to Coldplay's song titles or lyrics. "I'd rather be a comma than a full stop"? C'mon man how much do they pay you

if you read the lyrics without Chris singing them, yes. they suck. but so do Arcade Fire's. they both have lead singers who focus on the emotion and tone of their voices and sounding like NORMAL PEOPLE.  ::)

it's not the cheesiness, it's the stupidity of the lyrics. no, i don't hate Journey. i understand one can forgive the dumb lyrics if the singer sings with conviction, but i have a threshold to what i can enjoy before i just say "oh forget it....this is beyond embarassing." for example, UC was my fav off NLOTH when it came out, now its easily in the bottom 5 with he embarassing tech-babble. sorry, we need to agree to disagree on this.

well, I was just saying that Arcade Fire is also imfamous for having extremely emotional lyrics, yet people love it when they do it, and bash Coldplay for the same thing! and I love both bands, so I don't see what Coldplay did wrong!  :P

That's true, but there is a line, however blurry, between emotional and cheesy. And then there's shades of innocence and sweetness that might appear cheesy to some, and intensely emotional and human to others. Coldplay's debut, for me at least, falls squarely in the "innocent-bordering-on-naievety" category. Early Arcade Fire is also sweetly innocent in some cases, and simply overwhelmingly emotional and universal in others. But as both bands have progressed, their lyrics have for the most part declined in quality. Half of The Suburbs was, frankly, embarrassing (the other half was pretty darn good). And X&Y era Coldplay was beyond cringe-worthy. "The Hardest Part, Swallowed in the Sea, Fix You..." they're all ok-to-good musically. But lyrically, they don't just cross the border to into cheesy - they're catapulted across it at the speed of sound. Viva la Vida was a big step up, but for the most part it couldn't compare to the A Rush of Blood to the Head, which actually boasts some fantastic lyrics despite the haters.

As for Coldplay's new songs...I don't know what to think. First we have Every Teardrop is a Waterfall, which is very mediocre at best and terribly sappy (not to mention gramatically atrocious) at worst. Moving to Mars and Major Minus aren't exactly poetic masterpieces either. But at the same time, Coldplay are playing new songs such as Hurts Like Heaven and particularly Charlie Brown, both of which could eventually be counted amongst their greatest. I have no idea what to expect with the rest of their new album, but hopefully Mr. Martin's got a few more Charlie Browns in him.

I know! I rolled my eyes when I heard their new single was entitled "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" and was like, "Where are you going with this, Coldplay?", but then I heard the song and it worked. I mean, still incredibly cheesy, but I love the song.

Just saw them on the weekend in Queensland, their only show in Oz (a festival set... I went up for Pulp  :P)

They really played the early stuff well though, Shiver was incredible as always.

idk...I've heard that Teardrop is amazing live...

I wouldn't go that far...

Well, who knows. It might be coming from a crazed Chris Martin/Guy Berryman- fangirl or t could come from a fairly neutral music listener (although more likely the former   :D ) I really enjoyed seeing it played at Glastonbury, and they were quite creative with their presentation too. I guess we'd have to wait to judge if we see it live ourselves.  ;)

I hated Every Teardrop when I heard it on the radio.

I saw it at Glastonbury and thought it was amazing.

Cool, you were at Splendour in the Grass?

 I haven't seen any of the new stuff live in person yet, so I don't know. Of course, maybe Coldplay is a band where they have to warm up to their new songs and maybe play around with them a bit live and get a real grasp on their material. I mean, the old stuff has had a chance to evolve and get the members comfortable. Coldplay haven't released this material on the album yet, and its still really early. So maybe if it's not great now, it will get better. I mean, U2 takes a while to warm up to new material too, and so do a lot of other bands. So I think it will take at least until the normal tour to start deciding the real worth of this new material live.  :)

I'm really confused. Did Coldplay release a new CD? I just downloaded a bootleg of them at Glastonbury and there's all these songs I dont know, but there appears to be no record after Viva La Vida.... besides LPs.....? And wikipedia claims they released one (unnamed) in June....?

I like Coldplay. I'm not ashamed to admit it.

Though, really, I have to say that U2 kicks Coldplay's ass live.

This Glasto bootleg is nice. But U2 is way more exciting to listen to live.

We actually don't know. Apparently Major Minus is going to be on the album (we're not sure about Every Teardrop is a Waterfall and Moving to Mars), so I assume it's an EP. When has a band ever released a b-side that they then included on the subsequent album?

a little bit. we all know Chris worships Bono  ;)

but I don't think their voices sound similair. the guitars don't sound similair, Will doesn't sound like Larry, and Guy is just awsome like Adam

so that's the copying

I dont get Radiohead either. So I guess I'm not too smart. I like my music to make some sort of sense. Radiohead just sounds like they throw a bunch of random words together with some weird sounds and call it music.

Now, I like Depeche Mode. They give you weird sounds... with lyrics that actually say something.

Now, I like Depeche Mode. They give you weird sounds... with lyrics that actually say something.

Those weird sounds are some brilliant compositions. Radiohead combines intricate melodies, chord progressions, rhythms and textures, changing the way people (their listeners) hear and understand music. I know of very few bands that could pull off a 15 Step, Paranoid Android or Pyramid Song that actually makes any sense to our ears or even sounds good at all. From a musical standpoint, they are pretty much geniuses in comparison to every other band out there today. Anyway, their lyrics have, since OK Computer, been more about weaving a particular atmosphere for a song than telling a story. Which is a lyrical style that I like, when performed well.  :-X

Exactly. Those 3 in particular aren't weird. At all. The last 2 i'm not a fan of but everything they did 95-04 was great.

And i think Coldplay steal the U2 stadium anthem style with songs like Fix You, Viva La Vida, etc. In fact i feel the majority of the VLV album <particularly Eno's influence> is HIGHLY U2-esque. The first 2 albums? Not at all, but with X&Y, yea, it's there for sure.

you do or you don't? i thought you said they don't sound the same? Yea Chris and Bono's voices dont sound alike at all, i mean im not comparing them that way, just the whole stadium anthem "COBL" style of 00's U2 is waht i think Coldplay is going for. The VLV album sounds like the ambiance <if thats the right word> of TUF mixed with HTDAAB.

Is Speed of Sound the one people say was Cp tryin to do ASOH?

Yes. I've listened to Radiohead. And I own Hail To The Thief. On which I only like 3 songs.

Ok then. As long as you're not bashing them without ever having heard any of their music. :P *coughmiami66cough*

I'm curious, which three songs do you like?

1. Sit Down, Stand Up. - I admit this is self-indulgent on my part. I was going through a really rough time in my life when I bought this album so I just loved singing, "Walk into the jaws of hell" over and over because I felt like that was what my life was like... Bleh, dramatic and pathetic, I know.

2. Where I End And You Begin - Of course because it was on the radio. It was actually the song that got me to buy the album.

3. Go To Sleep - I have no idea what he's saying, but I like the sound of it.

Oh, and I guess I was wrong, I also like:

4. There, There. - Also on the radio at the time.

I have to say that 2 and 4, I REALLY, REALLY like... I've played them a lot.

But, man, all the song titles on there... they're all kind of arrogant and artsy. They give me the impression that my not knowing what they mean is part of the point...? I dont like to have to decrypt my music to get it. Or maybe Radiohead tries to be purposely mysterious because that is artsy??  ??? ???

They confuse me. And I guess they dont want me as a fan cuz I'm too stupid to get it....?

What is Myoxmatosis? Why do I need a dictionary to understand a band??

:)

The titles of their songs kind of remind me of when I was in middle school writing novels (yes, really, I did), and I'd come up with these enigmatic titles to sound mysterious and romantic. And sometimes I just looked up simple words in the thesaurus, picked the most obscure and big one in the list of words--without really knowing what it meant--and applied it to my story.

Example?

I had a novel I called The Continuity of Difference.

Go ahead and laugh. It's dumb!!

I also wrote a poem called My Fair Juvenescence. *snort* What a dork.

To those who would dare judge Yorke on his outward appearance, he has an eye disorder he used to wear a patch for. And his long hair. I love you Thom, ignore Octo-Head and the Boy Wonder.

So... Barenaked Ladies... Steven Page, Ed Robertson... and who are those other guys?

The Twilight Singers... frontman, Greg Dulli....

The Church... frontman, Steve Kilbey... and those other guys....

REM... Michael Stipe..... and those other guys....

 ??? ???

YES!!! You rock! Somebody else that likes BNL! I believe the majority of the world doesn't know about those guys, but they should. They were the first band I ever got into.

Let's see if I can do this after all these years:
Steven Page- lead vocals but left 2009-2010-ish
Ed Robertson- lead vocals, guitar
Jim Creggan- bass, piano, vocals
Kevin Hearn- guitar, vocals
Tyler Stewart- percussion, vocals
Andy Creggan left really early into career too

I also know Rush's members, Coldplay, the Killer's, and R.E.M. in addition to U2 (obviously).  ::)  ;)

And I always wonder about people hating on Chris Martin. I think he's pretty awesome in addition to being adorable.  :D ;)
Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: MarsGirl on August 10, 2011, 09:50:46 PM
BNL is one of my favorite bands!! A totally underrated group. I mourned the leaving of Steven Page. How can it be BNL without Steven Page?!?!

I love Rush.... but only know Geddy Lee. Damn, I'm so bad with names. One wonders why I know all the members of U2??

Well, U2 is a different category all together.... My love for them is way different than any other band... *sigh*

I dont hate on Chris Martin. I think he's talented. Love Coldplay. But I dont think Chris Martin is cute.
Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: Starguitar on August 10, 2011, 10:28:16 PM
^ Yeah, it's a bit weird without Steven Page... especcially live how Ed Robertson has to sing Steven's old parts... I mean, it's hard to make it work.

And Rush is my 2nd love to U2, haha. Another unbelievable live act, but U2 is just.... U2.  :D

Oh I I don't mean Chris Martin is adorable in a cute way; I mean I love his sense of humor at times when it doesn't get a little dirty. He's very good at improvising on stage and in interviews sometimes.  :D ;)
Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: MarsGirl on August 11, 2011, 04:27:41 AM
I can imagine it's weird without Steven Page.... He had a unique, distinct voice that made BNL unique. Well, Ed Robertson's voice is unique too. But still... I cant imagine the band without Steven Page. It'd be like U2 without Edge...

All their previous albums had something to enjoy and I never really hated a single of theirs...until this.

with their sh**ty christmas single and now teardrop I'm beginning to think they're done.

Yes. I've listened to Radiohead. And I own Hail To The Thief. On which I only like 3 songs.

Ok then. As long as you're not bashing them without ever having heard any of their music. :P *coughmiami66cough*


I actually have listened to some Radio**** and as I've explained on here before their music makes me want to kill myself so I don't put myself through that torture. What does Radio**** have anything with U2 2.0 Coldplays new album?

Who is this Radio**** you speak of?  8)

Had he read the last few pages he'd see clearly where the conversation turned to Rh. And "some Radiohead" = Creep, maybe one other. LMAO
Oh I read it. But the point still stands, this thread is about Coldplay's new album not Radio****

Maybe it started out that way, but whatever. Subject changed. No biggy.

it's an upbeat song which they don't have many of.

what the hell? Is this the coldplay thread? 90 percent of their songs have been upbeat since Rush of Blood

i dont either, but SatelliteDog pointed out comparisons with songs like Everything In It's Right Place, some others. Vaguely similiar, but like someone on th Weezer boards said "it's like someone heard Rh and Cp were both british and immediately thought they must sound the same"

the singles off X&Y: Speed of Sound, Fix You, The Hardest Part, and Talk

I think the opposite. I think this will be one of their bests. Why does everyone hate Teardrop, it's an upbeat song which they don't have many of.
I don't know!!! I love this song so much, for no reason at all! It's so different from all their other material- and much better than most of it ( :P )

In fact I have a theory about what this album might be like, but I'll save it until it actually comes out.

Cuz it's easier to order stuff through Amazon.com. And cheaper. And I'm not even sure I know of where I could buy a CD around here since all the Borders closed... Amazon.com will mail it to you so you get it the day of and then I can ride my bike that day after work and not have to worry about running to the store. :P I'm lazy and prefer stuff to turn up in my mailbox. (And I still prefer to have CDs over digital... though I end up ripping all my CDs to digital....)

I'm not traveling for Coldplay, sorry. :) I only do that for U2. So it's a Cleveland or Columbus date I'm doing....

I suspect they will come to Cleveland. Though, oddly, U2 snubbed city that contains THE ROCK N ROLL HALL OF FAME.

I'm actually willing to travel for Gavin Friday if he has limited US dates because I freaking love his album Catholic.

As for Coldplay, I guess I'm willing to travel to Michigan and/or PA if they too snub Cleveland (and if they want to be like U2, I guess they can!)

I'm also usually willing to travel to Michigan or PA for The Church so I guess I'm giving Coldplay the same level of regard. Though The Church is my second favorite band.
Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: Starguitar on August 12, 2011, 08:52:48 AM
They're still pretty young, and Chris Martin takes good care of his voice on tour, so I predict they'll probably play quite a few dates and make it to alot of cities.

1. Viva La Vida
2. A Rush Of Blood To The Head
3. Parachutes
4. X & Y (horrible album)

I also have a good feeling about Mylo Xyloto. I think it'll be their magnum opus.

1. X&Y
2. Rush Of Blood <--Reminds of me my time in Colorado as that's when that CD came out and it's the first Coldplay CD I bought. Holds a special place in my heart because of that.
3. VLV
4. Parachutes

Octo-head as spoken. :)

Im surprised and glad to see Para. is in spots #3 or 4 for so many of you. Im glad im not alone in my boredum with that album. Some goods songs, some mediocre, nothing that great, just like X&Y.

1. Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends
2. A Rush of Blood to the Head
3. Parachutes

...

4. X&Y (By FAR their worst. Has maybe two decent songs on it: White Shadows and Speed of Sound. I like the outro of Fix You though).

I disagree. I think my first three picks are all great albums, almost all the way through (We Never Change is the only unfortunate track on Parachutes). Their debut only comes in third because Viva la Vida and A Rush of Blood are so fantastic.

As for Mylo Xyloto...I think it could be really great, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up. I don't want to be disappointed by another X&Y...

Favorite songs on each:

1. X&Y - TALK, Warning Sign
2. Rush Of Blood - Clocks (cuz it reminds me of Colorado), God Put a Smile On Your Face, Green Eyes
3. VLV - Lovers In Japan, Lost
4. Parachutes - Spies

Yea, i'm afraid i'm bound to be let down. I'm not thrilled with anything minus Charlie Brown. I'd rank MMinus #2 in terms of the new stuff, but yea, nothing is sealing the deal for my excitement yet. But it will be the first Cp i buy on the release day.

As long as we're ranking:

1. Viva La Vida
2. A Rush of Blood to the Head
3. Parachutes
4. X&Y

My biggest complaint with X&Y is that the second half of the album is pretty boring and predictable. The first half feels dark and daring and by the end it's like they just got lazy and wrote a bunch of b-sides. It's not a bad album but it's definitely my least-favorite of theirs.

I LOVE X&Y TOO!!!  :D  although maybe I don't count as I am a obsessive Coldplay fanboy... ::)

I do find it much better than Parachutes though.  :P

here's my rankings:

1) Viva La Vida: Majestic, powerful, and with not a single bad song. no complaints!
2) Rush of Blood: It was close between this and X&Y, but the couple slow songs on this are forgiven because of its soaring high points, like Politik, The Scientist, Amsterdam, and Daylight.
3) X&Y: I actually like the 2nd half...so don't kill me. It's not amazing, but it's not horrific either. and A Message and Twisted Logic are just genius. but the first half alone...SWEET JESUS. if the whole album was like Square One to X&Y, it would be their best.
4) Parachutes: I don't hate it, and it's still good....its just very, very boring at some parts. I love acoustic piano, but not as much of an acoustic guitar fan, which this album has way too much of. but Yellow and Shiver are good!  :D

haha, exactly. Para is just p-whipped love sick acoustic ballads. i'll take the U2-style of the better part of X&Y, all of VLV over that any day. I love AROBTTH thou, they get the love sick thing "right" on that one.

because I've just repeatedly heard they're not as good as the album cuts, and they rarely, if ever, play them live. and the really good ones, like Sweetest Thing, end up getting official releases later.

Post by: emalvick on August 21, 2011, 03:11:16 PM
You should really give B-Sides the true.  While your statement may be true in general, you miss out on a lot when a great group tends to make great B-Sides.

For U2, the Sweetest Thing isn't really their best.  Songs like Spanish Eyes, Lady With the Spinning Head, and Walk to the Water are all fantastic B-Sides that are all album cut quality.

I'm not sure about Coldplay, but other artists will put out quality B-Sides as well.

In the album era (sadly of frail health lately) the only reason one bought singles were the B-sides, or if one happened to be a completist idiot (which usually is a self healing mental illness :-)

The point "not as good as the album cuts" is not really true with most bands. B-sides often just don't fit the artistic vision of the album, don't fit the flow of the album but they are released cause the band wants them released anyway.
You're doing yourself a big disservice AP if you purposely keep away from B-sides. Of course U2 aren't helping the case with their '00s track record either.

that's a pretty lazy excuse, i wont lie. b-sides in the cases of ALOT of bands can be better than some album songs. and what's it matter if they never get played live? you lost me on the "official" releases? b-sides are always official releases....

anyways your loss i guess.

Moses i think is just a song that got played live, i don't think it was a b-side.

b-sides died in the early 00s if you ask me. yea, most of the unedcuated just assume b-sides are "the bad songs" or the ones that must of "sucked" or something. the 90's were full of b-sides by most any band that was as good as the album stuff.

I always bought singles for the b-sides. B-sides are like exciting extras. U2 historically has had great b-sides... (I love Alex Descends... from The Fly single!!).

I havent checked out too many Coldplay B-sides, but I'm definitely going to start!

Yea, true fans of any band always love gettin into the b-sides! it's like finding hidden gems along the way. the One single got me into the U2 singles. I used to await the release dates for singles as though it was an entirely new album.

I'm not that familiar with the Cp b's, but no i wouldn't count Prospkets March at all. But you must hear it.

It's definitely my favourite song from MX that we've heard so far, but i do hope there are some gems that we haven't heard yet!
It's such a great tune though - great melody, chords, and vocals, but my favourite part by far is that eno/coldplayish synth/backing track over the top. I don't know why, but that type of soundscape (which is on a lot of coldplay songs since viva la vida) just really gets to me.

This may sound cheesy, but...I think that Charlie Brown's synth/guitar riff is as close to the sound of euphoria as I've ever heard. When it explodes in after the atmospheric intro, it's pure, unadultured joy. It's nostalgic and hopeful simultaneously, and I'm almost ashamed to say it, but the first itme I heard it almost brought me to tears (and I never cry). It's what my childhood sounded like. It is, simply put, perfect.

I feel like a wimp, but there you are.  :-[

you guys...the high point was revealed way back in June.  ::)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyMhvkC3A84&feature=grec_index

LMAO! that song is HORRIBLE. nice try thou  ::)

*sigh* album's highlight will be CB, calling it NOW! to bad it won't be a song we haven't already heard *DOUBLE SIGH*

some may find Every Teardrop to be subpar, but I find it to be infinitely more listenable than Breathe, Crazy tonight, Boots, White s Snow, and Unknown Caller.  Heck, you can add Magnificnt to that list too

oh wow this is worse than AP's annoying Teardrop love. i'll take Teardrop over SUC, yea. Oh, you forgot to add that to your list of crappy NLOTH songs. Mag > UC > Breathe > WAS > Crazy > Boots > Teardrop > SUC <worst NLOTH song by a mile>

I don't like SUC either! we actually agree on something???  :o :D

and I do like Charlie Brown, it just isn't as...energizing.  ;)  I bet Paradise will be amazing, for how little coverage it's getting.

yea, we're right, they're wrong. it's that simple. AMAAW is just as bad as ABOY, to me.

LRM? um it's the worst on R&H but it's not worse then those 3. SUC, ABOY, AMAAW.

What If is the worst song that Coldplay have ever done.

Square One is...ok. Fix You would be great without the lyrics.

I guess I was wrong, Speed of Sound is a high point, even though it's basically a spacier remix of Clocks. :P

Yup. Can't think of any Coldplay song I'd rather delete from existence.

Fix You is pretty much embarrassing the whole way through. "If you never try, you'll never know just what your worth..."  ::) Like I said though, musically it's great.

notice they've done the ATYCLB "symbols for songs" thing at the bottom? hahaha

Imitation is the best form of flattery?

tbh, Blink 182 did the same thing with their 2001 album Take Off Your Pants And Jacket.

I hope this is not the case... I did like Hurts Like Heaven a lot, though, too. So there's hope. Although Charlie Brown is definitely the best of all the new ones I've heard, IMHO. Major Minus a close second.

Wow, that may be a first. Although, In God's Country is my favorite song on TJT so we might have more common song interests. :)

So. Let's hope Paradise is a good one. To me it sounds like it's going to be a slow ballad or something. I dont know why I think that.

SPOILERS!!!!!!!

30 second clip of Paradise, if anyone's interesting/quick enough to hear it before it's pulled.
I regret listening to it because it's kinda ruined the surprise, but it is beautiful, and majestic. Same kind of synthy, Eno, club-kind of feel as ETIAW, but slower, darker, and more complex.

Since it was only 30 seconds, I listened to it. Very nice.

Also, I never watched any of Coldplay's Glastonbury or other festival peformances, so I have no idea what to expect. I am psyched. I do have the ETIAW EP and I love it.

I think this album is going to be huge for Coldplay, epic...

i feel the inclusion of Teardrop shoots down any hope i had for "epic" status. i can't get over taht song.

i comend you for not listening to any of the performances, the only song i think would of been "ruined" is Charlie Brown. the rest are near waht that one is.

Totally not what I was expecting but in a good way. I'm liking it. It will be good in the flow of the album from the songs I've already heard from the tour. I'm really excited for this album. It will end off the year nicely.

Paradise Okay the boys have just made a Rihanna song. On first listen I much prefer it to Teardrop and yet apart from the nice CM vocals, I can't hear much Coldplay in it. I'm all for change but I'm not sure I wanted Coldplay to go in the direction of heavy r&b production. I admit it sounds pretty good and will be a big hit.... but it's Rihanna I tell you!

I'm hoping that the studio version has that child-voice echo-y sound effect in it that I heard in the Glastonbury bootleg that opens the song. If so, this song will destroy everything new I've heard this year. My copy on bootleg gives me goosebumps.

Post by: Mercurial on September 12, 2011, 08:05:06 AM
I'm going to preorder today, that means I'll get Paradise today. Hmmm. I guess I can cheat a little...  :P

With Paradise now on a You Tube link on Coldplay.com, I'm so tempted. Arrgh. Heh.

I like the way Coldplay is at least communicating with their fans. It's like hey, the album is done, it will be out 10/24, then some artwork and images, then the track list (14!) and more art, streaming songs, etc.

Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: MarsGirl on September 12, 2011, 08:18:30 AM
Yeah, I really like the way Coldplay is handling the communication aspect of their release. Florence + The Machine also released a single from her new album (due in November) a few weeks ago. I love being given these sneak-peak singles because they give me a taste of what is to come. U2 definitely needs to do more of this!! And I love that Coldplay released the tracklist, even though a lot of the songs we dont even know yet. It just makes you try to envision what the rest of the songs could be like.
Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: Mercurial on September 12, 2011, 08:25:19 AM
I agree.

I did just remove my "wish U2 did this" comment because I don't want to derail this thread. I'm just really looking forward to MX and I like the way Coldplay is handling it.
Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: MarsGirl on September 12, 2011, 08:46:27 AM
Hey, it wont derail the thread. I think we all agree we wish U2 handled their marketing better. ;) Can you imagine what we'd do if the U2 camp gave us the same stuff like this?? Maybe instead of "Coldplay copying U2", U2 could learn some things from the younger Coldplay! :)

But, anyway, I'm more excited for MX now that I've gotten all these teases. I hope it turns out to meet my anticipation. And I hope there's some other gem in there that blows my mind out like Charlie Brown did. Although I have to say that now I've listened to Paradise 4x and it's growing on me better. Well, I mean, I liked it. I'm feeling good about this release because of it. Nothing sounds boring so far. Probably Every Teardrop is my least favorite... but it's not bad either.

I will say that listening to Paradise on the youtube stream is not the same as the downloaded version and will no doubt be better when I finally get the CD and or vinyl (when I finally get a worthy record player hopefully this year). The youtube version is a little too heavy on the synthesized bass and doesn't let you hear all the background detail. Getting the iTunes version this morning and listening to it with headphones on made me really hear and enjoy the song and honestly I love it. It's so undoubtedly Coldplay and not Coldplay all at the same time. It's great. I'm more than excited for this album to come out.

And the one thing I do like is that there's really only a handful of songs I've heard. It's going to be nice having 70% of the album be an entirely new listening experience. It's rare these days you actually get that in the world of internet music.

this is how i felt last year, nothing to look forward to. 2 albums came out last year i cared about, but i wasnt excited for either. This year so far? 3 albums that delivered on the goods big time <well not so much 3, more like 2.5, sorry KOL> 2 more coming including this one, maybe 3?

Just listened to the single and hanfull of times.

Errr, not their best.  I like the grand atmospheric sound, but the lyrics and construction of some of the melody fall flat.  Mostly the lyrics: they're really bad.  It sounds like an average pop tune.  Not impressed by this one.  Not horrible, but my expectations for Coldplay are high.

I've been checking out the coldplay forums regarding paradise, and there is quite a vocal negative reaction to it. There's even a headline over on NME about how much people hate it (although maybe that kind of thing is to be expected of NME).
I personally really like paradise. Sure, it's quite pop-ey, but i really love those soaring eno synths/organs, the piano melody, the hypnotic drum beat... hell, i even like the lyrics. The only thing that didn't impress me was the guitar - it didn't add much to the song, but then again, i don't really think it needed to, as it's not a guitar-driven tune. But the guitarist certainly seems to just be along for the ride, which is how i viewed the Edge for a lot of NLOTH.

What i've found most interesting is how, whilst on u2 forums, Eno is often hailed as the '5th member' of the band, a person instrumental in creating u2's biggest albums, over on coldplay forums, there are quite a few people who hate him, because once he started working with coldplay, they moved away from the earlier 'parachutes' sound to the more commercialised - or simply, different - sound of viva la vida etc.
Not that i agree with that - i very much doubt eno helped 'commercialise' coldplay at all - but it's very interesting how differently a lot of coldplay fans perceive him compared to u2 fans.

Paradise is pretty good!  I like the intro and the Eno synths in the background.  Ever since Eno has worked with them, I think they've improved significantly.  It's amazing what Eno can do as a producer, the atmospheres he creates are beautiful.  Anyways, pretty excited about this new album, it sounds a bit poppish so far (and the Rihanna guest vocals rumor isn't a great sign in my opinion), but I'm confident they can put out some good tunes.

Oh and to whoever said that Paradise sounds like Rise Above, I agree totally!  The way the chorus sort of "explodes" in is very similar

Ah really?  I haven't been following the news of this album too closely, except for occasionally peeking into this thread haha, so I didn't know if it was confirmed.  Meh, not much of a fan of Rihanna, but I'll withhold judgment until I hear the song.

To me it feels like Coldplay trying to be like the bands that try to be like Coldplay.

Even when Coldplay were being commercial their songs had a tinge of uniqueness to them..something that made them different.

I dont feel that in Paradise. Its dangerously getting close to ,to late to apologise territory.

I'm a big fan of coldplay..probably my second favourite band to u2. I have not been disappointed with any of their albums. But this is strike two for me and thats unusual with coldplay. i hope strike three isn't the album as thats all I have to look forward to this year.

its like an explosion of love, beauty, and keyboards! all which are great things!  :)

and I don't get why the Coldplay fans are hating on Eno. ever since he joined on, they went from 'promising band that will probably be the next REM" to "FREAKING AMAZING band that will be the next U2."

People were saying the 'next U2' thing two albums before Eno started working with them. And while I think Eno's work with U2 took them to another level creatively and got the best work out of them, I've found most of Eno's work with Coldplay the least satisfying and lacking the ambition of their earlier work. I hope I will feel differently soon but what I've head of MX so far hasn't excited me.

So...with that album and the first two terrible singles from the next album, id say Coldplay are on a massive spiral downward. They are another Oasis in my opinion, first three albums were good, the rest are not good

I've actually tried to listen a second time to Paradise, and now I'm pretty pleased, as it's all the proof I needed to relax me Coldplay just won't become U2's heir, ever.

This is such a nondescript committee approved tune it has to set some new record for amount of blandness per millisecond, thereby breaking the previous record set by either another Coldplay hit single, or any Eurovision line up.

Are they really releasing this as a first single? Ace. Keep it up boys, nice coming out.

I love the thumping bass in Paradise. The words are great, I relate to them. It does sound a little pop-ish... It's not as innovative as Charlie Brown. But Vertigo is also a pop tune... and I like lots of songs on HTDAAB better... But that doesnt mean I dont like to listen to Vertigo on occasion... and it did kick butt as a live song.

Is the song, the first track, Mylo Xyloto, an instrumental intro type thing? I see it played with 'Hurts like Heaven' and about 45 seconds in, it seems like 'Hurts like Heaven' kicks in. This is based on You Tube links from various festivals, I didn't listen to the whole track though.

Don't know if this has been posted, but coldplay debuted 'Up in Flames'.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLwFvcA8eS4

I'm personally not gonna listen to it (i've already heard too many songs from the album), but if anyone else wants to, i'd be very curious to hear if it lives up to the hype!

Quite a lot of style over substance maybe? Loved by the indie kids for about a year, their arty and interesting noise just became more of the same, only not as good. I can't even recall when I last heard news about them. Try Bloc Party. If the singer can only stop with the solo stuff, they've got more about them and proper tunes.

At my high school the only times anybody has actually heard of Coldplay is because of Viva la Vida (the song) and sometimes, but seldom, Yellow.  ::)

Paradise live from Austin (other live link was posted I think).

I think it sounds pretty good.

Martin's voice isn't that strong, from what I have heard of various Coldplay performances. He's no Bono.

I still like these guys though...... :-X

Kasabian are not as brilliant as FF can be at times (the lyrics are mostly okay as opposed to the cheeky brilliance in some FF songs) but the tunes will make you dance.

I think that FF has more good songs than Kasabian (their first 2 albums were significantly better than Kasabian's), but West Ryder Pauper Asylum was INCREDIBLE.

I have to say that although I don't like Teardrops, I really like Major Minus.  The second half of the song sounds very "Achtungish" and "Zooropaish".

I might have been focused on very different music at the time, but I'll give that album another chance if you say it's similar to Velociraptor (which I dig).

They may be too big for that. Last time they played Gund Arena (or Quickens Loan Arena, as it's now called but it's still the Gund to me). Besides, if it's not June, July, or August, Blossom's a crappy venue.

It's just so odd to me...the new Coldplay album cover looks like a blend of AB and Zooropa. They play Letterman, U2 played Letterman. I like Coldplay, yes I do. But they seem to be following very closely in some very big footsteps...I told my daughter, who likes Coldplay but not U2, that it was like her liking brownies and not chocolate.  :P

I'll go and re-watch Paradise from last night...to me, ETIAW sounded a mess, but maybe that's just me.

Thanks for the advice guys!
I was curious about General Admission tickets with Coldplay - with u2 concerts, the line seems to begin for GA at about 5am. Is that the case with coldplay fans?
Pretty sure i've missed the boat on the pre-sale, but i'll give it a go anyway!
Edit: Found out from the coldplay forum that fans do tend to line about at about 6am... might give GA a miss then! I'll try lower tier seating instead.

I like Coldplay, I'm not a huge fan though. I like the singles and some other songs, but tend to skip certain songs on earlier albums.

Anyway, so far this sounds like it could be a really great album, maybe their most complete. Viva la Vida is pretty good, but I think this will be better. I love Waterfall, Paradise, Moving to Mars and Major Minus, curious to hear the rest.

Teardrop is not disappointing at all.  The guitar riff is awesome and they managed to take a 90's dance and transform into something worth listening to.

I will agree Charlie Brown is the best of the new stuff I've heard though.  Wish they would have left Paradise off and put Moving to Mars on instead.  But, maybe I'll change my mind once I listen to the album in full.  Just 24 more days to go.

Yeah haven't heard Charlie Brown yet.

I see there's live versions on youtube, might just wait until the album comes out. I think it's already my favorite of theirs and I've only heard 4 songs. Except "Mars" isn't on it? deluxe edition probably?

There's a clip of the studio version on some british tv show commercial. Mars and life is for living arent on the album.
Thought I'd correct you in saying that Life is For Living is on their first album, Parachutes. It's a hidden song/the second half of Everything's Not Lost, so it closes the album.

And the song is wayyyyyy better live.

The song is great. It's fantastic. It's better than that Moving to Mars song people obsess over.

Sure, "I turn the music up, I've got my records on. I shut the word outside...", is kind of cheesy, but the rest of the song's lyrics are great.

Best song released this year by anyone by MILES.

I have to disagree.  :D I think the lyrics to teardrop are clever, especially this one. Can YOU compare life with grammar?  :D The self-titled song name, "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall IS a bit corny, but the rest of the lyrics are pretty solid IMHO.  ;)

Don't get me wrong I really apprecaite Teardrop. I find it very entertaining but Charlie Brown is no doubt the best song out so far. I'm very excited to hear the rest in hopes all the songs live up to that standard but I have a feeling that Charlie Brown will be the winner in the end. Everything about that song is perfection and I can't wait to see it live next year when they tour the States.

Funny you mention that because I love that lyric.

I've definitely heard people obsess over M2M. People complain about it not being on the album. At least it WAS released.

I do agree that Charlie Brown is the superior song, it has "hit single" written all over it.

He's saying comma, the punctuation mark that indicates a pause in a sentence, such as the one following the word "comma" in this sentence. ;)

A COMA is when you're "half dead."

MY interpretation of the line:

He'd rather be a comma than a full stop: he'd rather pause and be hesitant before plunging ahead, but still plunging ahead as opposed to stopping completely and NOT plunging ahead at all. The latter isn't living life to its fullest; the former is (to a degree, admittedly).

I have a different interpretation for U28. Considering the context I think he means that he wants his actions, his contributions, his time in the world, now, to be a springboard to something greater, a next generation where progress in the truest sense flourishes, and in part because of what we do now.
It's more of a metaphorical quote and I always felt this was the obvious meaning. I dont think he simply literally means he wants there to be another generation.

It's true with most music I know. I get excited about a new single coming out, then disappointed cause it's not that good, but then I buy the album and I love it, so I guess most bands just release weak lead singles...

I love AROBTTH. The whole thing reminds me of Colorado cuz it came out when I had first moved there. It's an album of new beginnings and adventure to me. So I guess I have more of an emotional reaction to it.... It was the album, though, that brought me to Coldplay....

it's got nothing on previous lead-singles

Teardrop > In My Place. :-X

Although all Coldplay lead singles tend to be some of the least interesting Coldplay songs. Don't know why they keep doing this.

oh. i LOVE IMP, infinitely more tahn Teardrop. As for lead singles, i LOVED Violet Hill, def top 3 off of VLV.


Violet Hill was/is brilliant. In My Place is as boring as hell. And the lyrics are, frankly, embarassing. Even more so than Every Teardrop, in my opinion.

In what twisted universe is What If a good song?! ??? I consider it Coldplay's worst, absolutely no competition. I'm not exactly a fan of Fix You, Talk or The Hardest Part either. Mostly because of their unbearable lyrical cliches (once again, worse than Every Teardrop). I like them all well enough musically. Talk's bridge and Fix You's outro are both pretty fantastic though.

I don’t necessarily hate clichés. But if you’re going to use them, you’ve got to counterbalance them with a little originality. X&Y tips the scale in the wrong direction.

Besides, after four billion years, haven't we gotten tired of the world going 'round? I wanna see it going square for a change!  :D

Nope. It thought so at first, but I've warmed to it. It's weird, but on paper the title just looks great. I like the sound of it as well.

By the way, it's pronounced:

MY-low ZY-luh-tow

"Zy" rhymes with "why" and "luh" rhymes with "the."

I get a little embarrassed every time my boyfriend and my mom both refer to Bono as "Bohno."  ::) ::)

Ugh, happens to me too.

I still don't know how to pronounce Achtung.

I heard a guy in my band class talking about Mylo Xyloto yesterday 8) It was cool. I'm annoyed I didn't jumpp into the conversation ("OMG, I want it too! Which new songs are your favorites?").

And, X&Y is my favorite Coldplay album too :P

Meh, pronounce it how you want to. I still hear people mispronounce Achtung and Bono all the time.

Achtung is a German word, you are going to find different pronunciations (even if, hypothetically, your first language was German).

On the other hand, Mylo Xyloto means nothing. On wikicoldplay.com, Chris Martin is quoted as saying that (the name) "seems a bit ridiculous and I accept that." He adds: "The title doesn't have any other meaning".

Seriously I haven't anticipated an album this much in a long time and the funny part is I've already heard half of it from all the tours this summer. But just being able to sit down and hear it in the order and presentation that it was meant to be heard is really exciting.

I am equally as excited for Florence + The Machine's new album as I am Coldplay. I'm so glad that I'm getting both within a week of each other. New music abounds!!

I'm not that excited for Florence's new album for some reason. Lou Reed and Metallica have a collab album coming out called Lulu and I'm interested in that even though it will suck.

Florence's CD is going to be awesome. :)

Right now I'm looking forward to Florence, Coldplay, and the AB super-deluxe if only for the From The Sky Down documentary... Oh, yeah, and I'm looking forward to the Q magazine with the AB covers. And I'm still trying to decide if I should buy the Foster The People album. I've listened to the clips on iTunes several times... and there's a few stand out songs, but some are "eh." But I felt "eh" about the previews of Gavin Friday's Catholic on iTunes and I ended up LOVING that album.

get the Foster album. definitely. there are a couple horrific songs, but just buy the whole thing anyways, because the rest is AMAZING.

Because of the parody. The mods pick people based on how they contribute to the website. Apparently, my parody brought those who were fans of Paradise together in mutual respect with those who were...well...not.

It's pretty cool though because I get to be member of the month at the same time Mylo Xyloto comes out.  ;D

The song with Rhianna called "Princess of China" was just leaked: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jj6iVHYHmJM (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jj6iVHYHmJM)

Catchy melody, but no substance in the lyrics.  Just like Paradise.

It will probably be taken off any minute. I'm underwhelmed again. There's nothing of Coldplay in there. Just sounds like a Rihanna production with the occasional Chris snippet over the top.

Well, it's a good quality leak, so don't let that stop you! I say go for it  :)

Ok, mini review time - Spoilers, i guess?

I was worried that, having heard a lot of the songs during the summer (when coldplay performed them live), that the 'surprise' had kind of been ruined. But those tracks are completely fresh on the album - they sound vastly more rich, dynamic, epic, and generally impressive. The title track into Hurts Like Heaven + Charlie Brown particularly impressed me, all sounding pretty damn amazing.

Princess of China sounds really great to me. I know a lot of people were disappointed about Coldplay doing something so 'mainstream' by working with Rhianna, but, as a lot of big reviews have said... it really works. It doesn't sound like some kind of generic, club, Black eyed peas song, it's lush and melodic - although it is very electronic, so if you prefer earlier coldplay, the amount of buzzing and whirling sounds will pi*s you off  :D But Rhianna and Chris Martin sound great together.

Up in Flames underwhelmed me, but only because i instinctively pre-judged it - the band were hyping it up, and their drummer likened it to 'clocks', but it's not that kind of song at all. However, it is a really beautiful song - i need time to judge it on it's own terms.

The second half of the album has a bit of a 'classic' coldplay feel - Us against the World and UFO in particular. However, the newer, electronic/eno sound does seep in (i.e. Up in Flames, Up with the Birds). Don't let it Break your heart is the most obvious 'pop' song towards the end of the album, and it's slightly dull to me, but it may just require more listens.

This album is definitely over produced, and has a 'mainstream' electro-pop sound, but the songs themselves are pretty damn great - they have a 'joy' to them that i haven't heard since Parachutes and Rush of Blood to the head. And the 'mainstream' production actually suits these songs, whilst the addition of eno ensures they don't sound generic - they have that lovely layer of 'what the hell is that?' that was present on Viva la Vida, that is kind of a signature of Eno/Coldplay by now, as well as that usual coldplay charm that only sinks in after a few listens.
I'm glad that a lot of the heavily electronic sounds are very much unique and creative, rather than generic chart-topper noises that you hear in the clubs.

So ultimately, i really like it. A bit poppy/predictable in places, but a lot of fantastic moments, definitely a good album.
If i were to rank it, i'd tie it with Viva La Vida (Both behind Parachutes and Rush of Blood).

FINALLY! I burned it, put it in my car and drove around listening to it from beginning to end and all I can say is I'm incredibly happy with it. It surpassed all of my expectations. I love that Eno is working with them because it really just gives their songs a lot of soundscape that I love.

Is it a pop record? For sure but that doesn't mean it's not a great record. From beginning to end it just makes you smile and the songs are so much fun. It starts out beautifully and ends so nicely with Up With the Birds. Up in Flames is kind of a mediocre moment in the mix of the album but still a good song nonetheless. And Charlie Brown is that good of a song. I see it becoming my favorite Coldplay song of all time.

I just listened to the whole thing.  Overall, I'd say it's better than Parachutes and X&Y. Not as good as Viva La Vida or A Rush of Blood to the Head.  So, 8/10 I guess.

Paradise, Princess of China, & Up in Flames were disappointing IMO, but everything else was fantastic.  If those 3 songs were left off and Moving to Mars was put on it, it may have been their best album yet (albeit a few minutes on the short side).

I've just heard it. Didn't want to post the link in case it would be too much to resist. My reaction: Pretty. That covers it really, nothing really grabbing me. I'm trying to put my finger on what exactly is putting me off this current batch. I've never had a problem with his voice in the past so it can't be that. Can't be lyrics because I honestly don't listen to them much at the beginning. That usually comes later. The answer may lie in the production.

Honestly it's amazing both on record and live. On record there's so much more depth to the music and you can really hear all the sounds. The live version is a little faster paced in how he sings it which is the only thing that I really noticed finally hearing the studio version, but that song is so good it doesn't matter if it's live or studio, it's just damn good.

I think it's a lot more like Pop actually  :P

Me too. I think digipaks look cheap. It says to me, "I didn't want to spend any money on marketing and presentation." It's the kind of packaging you expect from an indy band, NOT a major one. (So I dont mind it from an indy band... they cant spend money on marketing and presentation.)

For me, part of the experience of the album is packaging. I cant help it. It's another reason I love Gavin Friday's album. Even though his came in a little digipak.... But it's so beautiful and artistic.

I'm pretty sure digipaks are more expensive to manufacture than jewel cases.

They also look better, take design better/show it off nicer, and don't crack like the cheap plastic cases, that also leave press-marks and tears on booklets.

What digipaks lack is the clicking sound when you open and close them.

My jewel cases, however, are in better shape than my digipaks over time.

Major Minus A-
POC A+
HLH A+

I'm excited for next Tuesday

Up With the Birds - 8/10

Mylo Xyloto - 8/10 overall

Post by: jc619er on October 18, 2011, 04:55:57 PM
My rankings would go:

Mylo Xyloto/Hurts Like Heaven - 10/10 (This is the way you open an album)
Paradise - 8/10 (Really good song in the context of the album)
Charlie Brown - 10/10 (Seriously becoming my favorite Coldplay song ever)
Us Against the World - 10/10 (I like it a lot more on record than live)
MMIX/Every Teardrop is a Waterfall - 10/10 (Pop song or not it's just so much fun)
Major Minus - 10/10 (Loved it when I first heard it live and it only gets better)
UFO - 10/10 (Feels a lot like old Coldplay)
Princess of China - 8/10 (Could be better but still a pretty damn good song)
Up in Flames - 5/10 (I need to listen to this more but the simplistic drum beat is just so off putting)
A Hopeful Transmission/Don't Let it Break Your Heart - 9/10 (Just a flat out good song)
Up With the Birds - 10/10 (This song just ends the album so perfectly. The second half when it opens up is just beautiful)

Mylo Xyloto - 9/10 overall

This album is really good. I know a lot of people will blow it off as too poppy and not traditional to Coldplay's sound but it's definitely great. I love the Eno/Coldplay team. Some of these songs have that Prospekt's March feel and I love that EP. I'm excited to see them live next year in the States.

Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: Mercurial on October 18, 2011, 05:57:06 PM
For me...

Mylo Xyloto / Hurts Like Heaven - 10/10
Paradise - 8/10
Charlie Brown - 10/10
Us Against the World - 9/10
MMIX/Every Teardrop is a Waterfall - 9/10
Major Minus - 9/10
UFO - 8/10
Princess of China - 8/10
Up in Flames - 7/10
A Hopeful Transmission/Don't Let it Break Your Heart - 8/10
Up With the Birds - 9/10

MX 9/10

UFO reminds me of Faust Arp from Radiohead's In Rainbows, HTH reminds me of WTSHNN. PoC feels like a Lady Gaga's Red One produced Rhianna song guest starring Chris Martin. If it had more Coldplay, I would rate it higher.
Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: The Grave on October 18, 2011, 05:58:34 PM
so I'm guessing Up in Flames is the low point?

Well, I'm not too sure about that. I rated it 7/10 but I may need to revisit that rating.

It seems to be one of those songs that is just "good" or "ok' at first but it's growing on me...a lot. It's a quiet, slow song, with a bass thump/rim tick drum and piano and a little guitar, something like Massive Attack, but it has this soul kinda sound to it. I think people are going to change their mind on this one over time.

IMHO, there isn't a bad song on the album, I know many don't like Teardrop, but I think it's a good song.

I hate to say it but look at U2's last 3 albums...we all know there's a few duds on each, I can't say the same for this album.

Album of the year for me with Torches a close second.

Don't Let it Break Your Heart is...surprisingly...awesome. It took a few listens, but I now rank it second or third on the album. Charlie Brown was always going to be first.

It's such a flowing album, nothing really seems out of place. The transition to ETIAW just made me smile they do it really well. Not sure about the hype with charlie brown though will need to go back and listen again i feel. For me there best since a rush of blood

I haven't been that interested in this, despite liking Coldplay quite a lot in the past. Nothing I've heard has really changed my mind, I still haven't decided if I'll buy it or not. I quite like 'Teadrop', but the only other song I've heard, Princess China, was pretty bad. Catchy melody but... nothing else there.

I'll probably listen to Paradise and some of the other stuff before I make up my mind.

MX/Hurts Like Heaven - 10/10 (The way to open an album. I like how it's all "poppy".)
Paradise - 9/10 (I really like this. I don't see why it gets such a bad rep.)
Charlie Brown - 10/10 (Honestly the best song they've ever done.)
Us Against The World - 10/10 (Love ballads like this.)
MMIX/Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall - 10/10 (MMIX is the extended intro into this. They used it during live performances. It's really good! Along with ETIAW, fantastic song.
Major Minus - 9/10 (It's completely different from anything they've ever done. Still really good.)
UFO - 8/10 (The low point of the album for me. Still a great tune.)
Princess of China - 9/10 (To me it's simple and to the point. Rihanna is good. There's something about this song that makes me love it, but I don't know what it is ;) )
Up In Flames - 9/10 (Another one of these slow ballads. I think the part where they sing "Up In Flaaaaaaaaames" is really good.
A Hopeful Transmission/DLIBYH - 10/10 (This song makes me want to run. Fast.)
Up With The Birds - 10/10 (It's cool how it starts off king of mellow and almost sad, but then it ends on a happy note.)

My rating 10/10.

I'm going to like anything that these guys do. Like Bono says they are genius when it comes to melody.

Nah, Katy Perry is listen-to-it-never-or-your-ears-will-bleed-it's-so-crap pop. :P


On a Coldplay-related note, if this is how excited all the Coldplayers get over that band's album release, I hate to see what you guys are like when it's time for a new U2 record to drop. :D

You should have seen the Radiohead forum the day The King of Limbs dropped.  :D

I did when No Line came out, but I'm honestly much more excited for Mylo Xyloto than I was for that. Coldplay's quickly overtaking U2 as my new favorite band. U2 didn't throw in synthpop to the mix yet...

U2 will always be my #1. I still love all their music as much as the day it came out...

But I am almost equally as excited for MX and Florence's Ceremonials as I think I would be if U2 were about to release a new album. Almost. I still think I would explode if U2 were about to release something...

Yeah, that's the shipping option I selected... If I'm going to preorder, I want it on the day of the release. I stupidly picked a slower shipping option for NLOTH and did not get the album until two days after it was released. I went NUTS.

For those that have it, on "Us against the world", is there a bum note the intro? I dunno, but I hear it every single time and it bugs me. :(

I love the song, it's so awesome and the guitar is quite Edge-like.

My already positive review of the album is gaining even more points the more I listen. You guys are going to love it.

The more I listen to it, the better it gets (mostly the songs I was not fond of when I first listened to it).  Paradise is slowly growing on me and Up in Flames doesn't seem as disappointing as it did the first time around.  I still can't get over Princess of China though: awesome melody and sound, but Rhianna...why?

But I will say if Charlie Brown is not made a single, they will have officially lost their minds.  That may be their greatest song ever.

Yeah, but I never have time on the way into work to go get a CD. Although, when HTDAAB came out, I managed to drop by a store first thing in the morning on the way to work.... I would have trouble listening to it at work, though, cuz the CD player on my work computer causes my instant messenger to go haywire.

Also, I just bought Foster The PEople's new CD in mp3 format from amazon cuz I had a $3 promotional credit from buying Mylo Xyloto... So it only cost me $6.

Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: The Grave on October 24, 2011, 04:55:00 PM
WOW.

MX/HLH – 10/10 one of the best Coldplay songs EVER. They work together so well and the lyrics for HLH are AMAZING.
Paradise – 10/10 another great song. It’s just plain great.
Charlie Brown – 10/10 hands down. Best Coldplay song EVER. Nothing more to say
Us Against the World – 10/10 the first dark horse of the album. A great song that really sounds like it could be on Parachutes.
MMIX/Teardrop – 10/10 screw Party Rock Anthem, this is how I get pumped.
Major Minus – 9/10 a great song live. I just don’t think it’s as good recorded; still a great song.
UFO – 9.5 really good after hearing some bad reviews.
Princess of China – 10/10 I know A LOT of people really don’t like this song and Rihanna but I think it really works. This song perfectly describes a relationship between me and a forum member *coughDScough* ;)
Up in Flames – 10/10 another great song. I like the repeated “Up in Flames”, I remember seeing some bad comments about that.
A Hopeful Transmission – 9.5/10 I really liked it. Cool instrumental
Don’t Let It Break Your Heart – 10/10 WOW. The second dark horse, and my third favorite song on the album.
Up With The Birds – 9.5/10 Good way to end an album.

My rankings of songs would go *this is like splitting hairs*
Charlie Brown
MX/HLH
DLIBYH
POC
UATW
Paradise
MMIX/Teardrop
Up in Flames
UFO
Up With the Birds
Major Minus
A Hopeful Transmission

P.S. A LOT of small musical pieces

Best Coldplay album yet!!

and overall ranking 9.8/10

Having now heard Charlie Brown properly, I must say, I don't see what the fuss is. It's a very good song, no question about it, but it's also spectacularly safe and 'Coldplay by numbers'. Very well done Coldplay, but still nothing new- an 8/10 max.

I think there is too little drum variance, but this is just what I think from first listen.

I agree, I knew it was hyped, but at first listen, I found it to be nothing extraordinary. Just a very strong song.

A song's conservativeness doesn't necessarily negate its brilliance.

Charlie Brown is just a perfect anthem, and that's really all there is to it.

Very true. Yet I have to agree with TUC...in Charlie Brown's case, it does. It sounds like something expected of them - not fresh at all.

To each his own, I suppose. Personally, I think it's incredible. Definitely one of my top five Coldplay tracks. It may be poppy, but there's an air of experimentalism in the song that might go unnoticed to the average listener. For example, the chord progression sounds commonplace, but it actually contains a few interesting changes. Not to mention the time signature changes (4/4 to 2/4 and back). The lyrics are some of Martin's best, and that riff...musical euphoria. It's nostalgic and hopeful simultaneously, the embodiment of my childhood.

Love it.

Maybe it's just me, though.

Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: fardreamer on October 24, 2011, 09:55:17 PM
Great record ;D

MX/Hurts Like Heaven 8/10 - I love how the first moments of MX sound like a continuation of Death and All His Friends off VLV.
Paradise 8/10 - This is quite a departure in term of style for Coldplay, it might be the most technically impressive song on the album.
Charlie Brown 9/10 - Totally awesome song.  It's not really that different, but its SOOO well done.
Us Against the World 5/10 - Nothing wrong with it, but it messes up the mood of the first half.  Might sound better in a different slot.
MMIX/Teardrop 8/10 - Teardrop is just so catchy.  Yes, it's cheesy, buy it is delicious cheese.
Major Minus 8/10 - I love this song.  It's catchy, a little wierd and Martin's singing is great.
UFO 5/10 - Made very little impression on me.
Princess of China 7/10 - I wasn't keen on the idea, but I must admit its pretty good actually.  Brave.
Up in Flames 6/10 - Nice filler track.
A Hopeful Transmission 6/10 - See above.
Don’t Let It Break Your Heart 7/10 - This one snuck up on me.  Very catchy.
Up With The Birds 7/10 - Although it's a very different track, it reminded me of Death and All His Friends, because of how it changes in the middle.

Not sure if it's as good as VLV, but it's in the same league.  I will say that VLV took a while to grow on me whereas MX has grabbed me from day 1.

Agree -- I only liked Paradise and Major Minor... but I liked those before the album came out... so there was nothing new or fresh in this offering. Prefer X&Y / Viva La Vida any day over this offering...

no, it's not.

i give it a 7/10. better than i expected but nothing outside of maybe CB and MM stand out as great. POC doesn't belong on the album. It's a very "wthhhhhhhh?" moment. It belongs on a Rhianna cd, not a cp cd.

Okay, I'm on my second listen of the album this morning. (Last night, I was paying bills and could only listen to it once in the background... and my overall impression at first was, "It flows together nice. I'm a little underwhelmed.)

This morning, though, I started listening to it on the way to work. I absolutely LOVE Charlie Brown. GREAT, GREAT song. And Major Minus is awesome too. I think Charlie Brown is my favorite track followed closely by Major Minus.

The album sounds better overall to me this morning. I'm about to put my headphones on and get a good listen. I have to say that Hurts Like Heaven is beautiful... I do like Paradise, especially in the order its played on the CD. I think there are a lot of great tracks on here. But I dont think X&Y is in any danger of being replaced as my favorite Coldplay album.

Doh, seriously, iPod pisses me off sometimes. I synced Coldplay by artist to my iPod so that all the albums would go onto it... But POC didnt get on there cuz the artist is listed as "Coldplay feat. Rhianna." So that song did not get on my iPod. How freaking frustrating.

Not that it's an awesome song but I would have loved to listen to it a few more times to get an opinion. RRRR, stupid iPod.

No it's that the booklet flips so you can choose which cover which explains why they didn't go the digipack route and kept it in a jewel case.

Post by: Mercurial on October 25, 2011, 10:18:28 AM
I have seen two covers.

A spray-painted looking one, that looks pretty nice and then a silver one with MX on it. The iTunes album art for it is the silver one.

Like a few others here, I had the leak, which I deleted Sunday night off of all devices and my pre-order from iTunes kicked in around 11:30PM EDT, along with my Steve Jobs book for my iPad (yes, I am an Apple fan). I don't buy physical media any more, although I considered getting into vinyl. :)

For some reason, the iTunes songs don't sound as good as the leak I had, but the bit-rate is the same, so I'm not sure what is up with that. I noticed it on Charlie Brown, the end where he plays the theme quietly on the piano (in the outro), I'm hearing tapping or some noise. Weird.

Actually, I've listened to the album a few times through today (minus POC *thank you very much iTunes*) and overall I think it's a solid release. I'm almost ready to rate the songs. I definitely like the CD. But not better than X&Y. But you're also talking to someone who is hopelessly attached to U2's October. It's hard to beat my prevailing love of a certain album....

Charlie Brown, though, is probably one of my new favorite Coldplay songs.

UFO and Up And Flames are pretty good, too.

I just think that all of them sound similar to one another. They all have features that make them unique, but there doesn't seem to be a major sound contrast from song to song like I was expecting.

I think that's more the result of the way the album floats together. I feel the songs are arranged in away, even those transitional songs, so that they kind of flow into one another. You might feel differently if you listened to the album on random?

I do like the floating together aspect, and I did listen to the entire album front to back.

I was expecting even more than VLV, so maybe that's why I'm slightly disappointed. Oh well. Nonetheless a strong release following such a good album in VLV.

But I'm even more happy for Audio, Video, Disco  8)

I brought it and listened last night. I found myself laughing in places. The chipmunk bit especially. I dont know whats happening to my favourite bands. Coldplay seems happy to play cheesy pop and u2 are struggling to do anything at the moment. Rihanna? really? and dear i say it..she probably had the best vocal performance of the whole album.

First listen though..but overall its down the bottom and I've loved every single album by coldplay up to now.
To poppy and the experimental stuff is boring with nothing to inspire. I feel the same way I did when I listened to No line. Searching for something to enjoy.
Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: THRILLHO on October 25, 2011, 09:19:32 PM
i'd give it a 6.5 out of 10. The second half, that is to say the songs following MM are dull and boring. Up In Flames is such a nothingness of a song. The Rhianna song belongs on her album, or a compilation album like a soundtrack. I don't mind DLIBYH but not so much the songs post MM otherwise.
Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: AchtungPiano on October 25, 2011, 09:58:25 PM
so here's my favorites:

Charlie Brown (possible new favorite?), Princess of China (pop perfection.), and Hurts Like Heaven.

this isn't counting Paradise, Teardrop, and Major Minus, which I already heard and love.
Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay

The verdict is in.

Mylo Xyloto gets a 7.0 from Pitchfork, which makes it their highest-rated Coldplay album.

I did NOT see that one coming.

Post by: TongueInMyEar on October 26, 2011, 04:36:14 AM
First listen to the album this morning. It's not my favourite but it's better than X&Y, probably same level as the last album.

Hurts Like Heaven is standout track for me, but Paradise, Charlie Brown and Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall are all great. Usually I love the slower tracks on Coldplay albums but they're not doing it for me just now on this album, I'll need to give it a few more listens.

And surprisingly I like Princess of China, though it doesn't fit the album.

Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: MarsGirl on October 26, 2011, 07:20:50 AM
I think UFO stands out on the second half. Thoguh I cant figure out if I like that song just cuz the title is UFO or I actually like the song. I like Up In Flames, too.

But the first half definitely has all the power... it's like boom-boom-boom with great songs. I love how Paradise slides into Charlie Brown. Charlie Brown is AWESOME. Even if you think it's route Coldplay, Charlie Brown is Coldplay doing what Coldplay does best.

And the bassline on Major Minus is awesome!! And I love the musical interlude of the middle 8. I wait the whole song for it and when it hits, it just kind of takes over my senses.

I won't listen to the album, but I have to say Major Minus and Hurts Like Heaven work even for me.

Why won't you listen to it?

Because doing so goes against his religion.

Not really, I used to like CP when they started and grew to hate them with X&Y. I can't listen to Martin's voice, but these tunes don't rely so heavily on his routine.

But you won't even give it a chance? Isn't that a little close-minded? I can understand not liking something, but I would at least give it one listen. Especially since you like Major Minus and Hurts Like Heaven.

Chris Martin irritates me so strongly I can't listen to more than a few seconds. When he goes into falsetto, or there's a blatantly mediocre line of lyric, I have to stop. I tried listening to Paradise, PoC, Teardrop, but wasn't able to get through without thoughts of heavy blunt objects, like buses or oil tankers heading rapidly towards him.

Yeah, early on, when there was some chance that he'd get stronger. But by X&Y it was clear he settled into his mannerisms and I gave up on him.

Great concert. If they were ever going to make another DVD this is definitely the concert to do it for. Great setlist, great sound and fantastic stage setup. Loved it.

The more I listen the more I love Hurts Like Heaven, definitely my favourite on the album. And the rest of it is really growing on me.
Title: Re: A Thread Full Of Coldplay
Post by: Clarky on October 27, 2011, 04:50:46 AM
I've given it 4 or 5 listen and its completely grown on me. Its like night and day. I was underwhelmed on first and second listen, but from then on I've started to really appreciate each song and how the whole album just flows so beautifully! I really really like this album. I personally dont think it will top VLV (thats my all time favourtie album) but it could be their second best..maybe.

Paradise...what a great great song. It's so emotive and epic. Love it.

Charlie Brown... grown on me from being a simple almost safe Coldplay song to something really wonderful.

Princess of China...its very Rhianna and Im normally not a fan of her work, but I do like this song. Maybe Im just biased because of Coldplay.

I’ll preface this by saying I wouldn’t consider myself a Coldplay fan, but my wife’s a fan so we own the albums.  I do like some of their songs, but they’re not something I spin intentionally.  That being said, I was interested to see how this album sounded – to see what their progression would be after Viva La Vida. 

I like it very much.  Not sure how I’ll feel it in a couple of weeks, but I like it now.  It’s plenty cinematically poppy, but that’s not a bad thing, and Coldplay does that fairly well.  I really like the “Mylo Xyloto” theme that repeats throughout like a theme from a movie or something, and that sets a good mood that binds the album together.  I’d like to see U2 do something like that – it reminds me of The Wall’s theme. 

Songs I really like:
Paradise (really, really like song)
Hurts Like Heaven
Every Teardrop is a Waterfall
Us Against the World
Don’t Let It Break Your Heart
Charlie Brown
Princess of China

Like I said – I like the theme thing in all the shorter songs that have that.  The only songs I haven’t connected with yet are “Major Minus,” “UFO,” “Up in Flames,” and “Up With the Birds,” but that may take some time.

I think it’s a pretty solid album and I’m impressed.  I think I like it better than my wife.  We’ll see how I feel about it in a few months.

Post by: AchtungPiano on October 28, 2011, 10:56:42 PM
alright. here's my review:

1) Mylo Xyloto/Hurts Like Heaven: 9/10. Perfect opener. Upbeat, crazy, and that auto-tune is used perfectly, not annoyingly. Great to run to also!
2) Paradise: 9.5/10. The cynical side of me hates this song. Fortunately, that side is very, very small. It's impossible to hate this blast of epicness. And that techno bass kick...mmmmmyeah!
3) Charlie Brown: 10/10. Tie for best song. Easily the best riff Coldplay has had since Clocks; maybe even better. Just pure Coldplay.
4) Us Against the World: 8/10. Very touching ballad. Hasn't quite grown on me yet, but is halfway through that process. It does bug me a bit how it doesn't get any louder or kick into a massive arena-rock chorus, but that's the point.
5) MMIX/Every Teardrop is a Waterfall: 10/10. Haters can leave. This is a Coldplay song that you can dance to. Is there anything more amazing?
6) Major Minus: 8.5/10. I have grown a little tired of it since June, but it's still very good. Has a definite Smashing Pumpkins feel to it (without Billy Corgan's voice obviously.)
7) UFO: 7/10. Not a bad song, persay. Just very unmemorable.
8) Princess of China: 9/10. The balliest Coldplay song yet. I love it and its pop glory. And this is coming from a person who typically doesn't like Rhianna.
9) Up In Flames: 8/10. Put 808-era Kanye's auto-tune over this, and it would be perfect. However, the minimalism sounds slightly off for a Coldplay song. It still works, though.
10) A Hopeful Transmission/Don't Let It Break Your Heart: 8.5/10. A little sterotypical, a little overkill, but with Coldplay, who said that was an issue! It's not as perfect as similar rockers Paradise and Charlie Brown, but still is catchy and gets you pumped.
11) Up With the Birds: 9/10. I love the classical feel to this, and find it to be a perfect closer.

All in all:

Coldplay's best album yet. and the best album of 2011 (so far. Ceremonials could be even better!). I actually like this better than the majority of U2 albums, if that's not blasphemic.

I've now listened to the album and have decided that I'm definitely not going to buy it. Three or four good- occasionally very good- songs don't make up for an overall averageness. While I'd have to listen to it more to place it, definitely below Parachutes, Viva and Rush of Blood, battling with X&Y for worst Coldplay album- which doesn't make it a bad album, just nothing special.  Much worse than Bell X1 or REM releases this year.

I don't think I'll end up holding this album in the same regard as VLV (as I've said...I love it), but it's a solid Coldplay album nonetheless. I love the relaxing interludes between tracks. UFO is beautiful. Overall, and it's still very eary, but I'd give it 3.5/5

Right now I'd rank it similar to X&Y: half of it is great and the other half feels like dull filler. I'm still warming up to it so maybe it'll improve but after the brilliance of Viva La Vida maybe my expectations were just too high.

Time will tell.

Re the current album, it's definitely better than VLV. I knew a lot of the songs on their already, favourite's still Major Minus. They have succeeded in bridging the gap between indie and pop.

After two plus weeks of listening this album is still just as good as the first time I heard it. They are just a solid group and I love their progression. The quiet ballads on this album are classic Coldplay. I mean that's pretty much the entirety of Parachutes. MX will be another great album in their career that will get looked back upon fondly.
