I wouldn't have thought Coldplay going full stadium EDM would work, but this definitely does in my opinion.
It is astonishingly shite.
The songs they've previewed from this album seem to have been progressively less interesting.
can we all agree to stop saying EDM aswell, thanks.
It sounds like something you would have left off Mylo Xyloto.
There are like three other tracks out there, Oceans in particular, that sounds far more interesting.
appears to take cues from Loscil ffs.
Magic and Midnight that is. This one is kinda crappy though. It just reminds me of a lesser Every Teardrop is a Waterfall, and that song was hardly one of Coldplay's best to begin with.
It's like others have said, it takes cues from Mylo Xyloto, and that album past track 4 or so was total utter bobbins.
there's a reason they keep him away from the day to day of the site these days
affixed to my house. how good can it be?
The first 4 albums are all pretty bland obviously but do admittedly have a few songs I quite like sprinkled throughout (I got really into X&Y when it came out and still have a bit of a soft spot for it even if I haven't listened to it in years). Everything I heard from the last one was utterly utterly shit and this sound like they're continuing that way.
and I still can't remember a thing about it, not really pop anthem material that. Even I can remember something about Ke$ha & Pitbull collecting Timber or something.
never like artists that stand still, but how you can go from Parachutes to this is mental
It should have referred to Magic.
...but that was even worse than i could have imagined.
Since seeing this I've decided he's a full scale bellend again:
he's going through a lot at ht emoment and you would love if tom yorke did this
you can spell their names lke you're in love with them
His dance 'moves'
but this isn't THAT bad.
And the other preview songs for this album have been good/excellent.
Not interested by them, nor by bashing them, but when it comes in with the EDM or whatever-you-call-it... it's just very crude
It just leaves me picturing the latest dance anthem on MTV or some sub-MTV Euro pop channel, you know with like girls in thongs and boob-jobs working out vigorously in a gym, or holding pneumatic drills.
Could genuinely imagine Satan's little analingus buddy Pitbull doing a guest spot during a mid-song breakdown before the tune throbs back in for one final euphoric surge.
isn't there more than a passing resemblance to a souped-up Life of Riley by The Lightning Seeds?
It's some horrific 90s commercial trance track with Chris' vocal badly mixed on top.
are utter UTTER Shite. Really tried not to write this over the last few days but can't hold off anymore. Can't even see why someone would attempt to listen to a new song when they've been consistently shit since their debut single. Freakin' write on my hands with a marker pen cry and at the piano like I'm Tom Odell's lost Father - FUCK OFF!
Somehow made it infinitely worse with that shit 90s eurodancy bullshit attached to all chart songs these days.
I always wonder why people go and see Coldplay, anytime I see them live on tv Chris Martin in particular seems so, so weak and very out of tune. Couple that with the blandcore backing and it's basically songs for people who hate music imo. But I wasn't a teenager when Yellow came out, so.
and never will listen to it. Coldplay will leave us with a generation of Tom Odell's. PLEASE HELP US!
all a bit fish in a barrel isn't it? they're fine.
they used to be fairly inoffensive tbh, but since X & Y they've just become a really, really shit band.
haha just found this yesterday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QP7KPhU8eSg
Viva La Vida was pretty good I thought
if there were more modern-day U2s and Radioheads around making better music.
haven't led to the inspiration of any genuinely good bands.
But I guess once perfection is attained there's nowhere else you can go.

ROSCOE: Marlon look you've hurt yourself now and got your legs stuck on a washing line
MARLON: I'm sorry Roscoe
ROSCOE: And I'm not buying you another shoe if you break that one with your fussing and your gallavanting, mister. That's the one shoe that you are allowed to have
ROSCOE: Alright I am a carnival now.
MARLON: But I really believed this time Roscoe
ROSCOE: My name is Roscoe
This is the second worst thing they put their name too. It is only better than that Rihanna song off the last album. That it even comes close to the nadir is just so disappointing.
I am not afraid to say I like Coldplay. I like the other songs they've released from this album. But this... This is so misguided and dreadful dross it is so so sad.
Man, they could have done a Kid A. I was certain of it. Now I'm not sure.
You lot don't half moan a lot.
This song is absolutely tailor-made for shit youtube compilations of football players.
Is aactv a bot? I can't even see any internal logic to what he says sounds good any more.
I'm sorry, I like the melody of it. Guess I regret starting a thread about it.
Rush of Blood, I'd go so far to say, is a stone cold classic.
Coldplay aren't built to be adventurous like Radiohead-- the comparison never made sense to me. But now the band has a "Clocks" formula for stadium pop rock and the result keeps inching them closer to Maroon 5 garbage.
I think it's fair to blame Gwenth Paltrow. (Yeah, sure, why not?) Won't be vigorously defending the band anymore, but I'll still give them one more chance after this one before writing them off for good.
Chris Martin, some day soon I'm thinking, is gonna say to his mates: got rid of the Hollywood bitch, who cares about selling as many records as Jay-Z, and how about we sweat out some new tunes that we can be proud of again.
Or he'll start dating Emma Stone. We shall see.
Swedish House Mafia don't you worry child.
I'm trying to find that thread where moker asked to think of a name for the sound of the millenials generation and someone came up with shallovv vv^ve or something
that goes "Down the sign-in tent with the Rakes / Where I baked my first cheesecake" is one of my favourite five seconds of any pop song ever. Unfortunately, it then immediately switches back into generic boredom
I will no longer whisper... for I am silenced
Aaaand the odds from Ladbrokes are as follows:
5/2 - PC&P will think it's absolute hell
6/1 - PC&P will think it's "absolute hell, but that Chris Martin's a really nice guy who you could go for a pint with."
20/1 - for no valid reason PC&P will be called a racist Islamophobe self-loathing Northerner who should leave the boards immediately
