iTunes Review

There’s a blissful lack of restraint to the multi-layered neon pop of Coldplay’s seventh album. The carnival kicks off within 20 seconds of the opening track and allows only the most fleeting of (Barack Obama-narrated) sit-downs as the extent of their ambition is joyously unfurled. It’s the sound of a band liberated: free to recruit Beyoncé for vocal duties on the euphoric “Hymn for the Weekend,” trade sweet nothings with Tove Lo for “Fun”’s hazy holiday romance jam, and talk Noel Gallagher into a (What’s The Story) Morning Glory?-sized guitar solo on the hymnal “Up&Up.”

Don't change

Coldplay has gotten sucked into this "pop" era where they feel the need to follow the trend. Their old music was so much more impactful and enjoyable.

Honest Review

This is going to be my honest review as a Coldplay fan for 15 years. I don't like how people can give reviews with only one song out, and those are the ones you see first. Apple needs to change the system so that you can only review the album once the full album is out. And don't think I'm biased, because I like pop, rap, rock. But I like my Coldplay to be Coldplay. And this, once again, isn't Coldplay- it's pop music with Coldplay's name on it.

It's disappointing, that's all I can really say. When they were playing the songs live, they sounded amazing. The producers did a really bad job. This album is too tame, it features other artists like Tove Lo and Beyonce (and Barack Obama????) when Coldplay are far too talented to have to feature anybody else, and it's far too pop-y. If this is indeed their final album, I'll be very, very disappointed.

Up&Up is one of their best songs ever made for a live audience, but listen to it in the album. Barely any instruments until Jonny's first and then Noel Gallagher's second guitar solos. The instruments are definitely there live, but they disappeared for the stuido version? It's too tame. I was looking forward to this song more than anything in December. Huge letdown.

Everglow, however, saves this album. This song is on my top 5 list ever of Coldplay songs, and probably my top 10 favourite songs ever now. It's up there with The Scientist, Fix You, Violet Hill, and A Rush of Blood to the Head- songs with lyrical meaning and actual piano in it. So, thank you, Chris, for giving us one final good song. Amazing Day is nice too, but far better live.

Here we go again!

Going back to the vibrant colour and big soundscapes, Coldplay can’t seem to stay away from Mylo Xyloto era. It’ll be interesting to see how this album differs from that.


Formed: 1998 in London, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

After surfacing in 2000 with the breakthrough single "Yellow," Coldplay quickly became one of the biggest bands of the new millennium, honing a mix of introspective Brit-pop and anthemic rock that landed the British quartet a near-permanent residence on record charts worldwide. The group's emergence was perfectly timed; Radiohead had just released the overly cerebral Kid A, while Oasis had ditched two founding members and embraced psychedelic experimentation on Standing on the Shoulder of Giants....
