iTunes Editors' Notes

Stepping back from the blazing energy of 2008’s Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends and 2011’s Mylo Xyloto, Coldplay’s sixth album is an introspective, bittersweet meditation on love and loss that sounds every bit as spectral as its name suggests. The band’s gift for soaring melodies is evident throughout Ghost Stories—particularly on the magnetic first single, “Magic”. But aside from the EDM-infused throb of “A Sky Full of Stars”, the album offers little of the triumphant grandeur that defines the band’s stadium-filling oeuvre. Instead, Chris Martin’s heart-rending falsetto floats along in a haze of synth-washed ambience (as on the entrancing Kid A–influenced “Midnight”) or sparsely accompanied by acoustic instruments (“Oceans”, “O”). When the final track fades out, offering a wordless, melancholy hymn from a distant choir, Ghost Stories demonstrates the expressive power of understatement.

Customer Reviews

Um....

Only 9 songs? And it would be cheaper to buy the songs individually lol.

Painfully disappointing

Cast your mind back to how you felt the first time you listened to Parachutes, now imagine the complete opposite to that feeling, and voila- Ghost Stories. I've loved Coldplay from day one. I've grown up with them and every one of their albums has provided a soundtrack for a particular moment in my life. But this, regrettably, is so far removed from the Coldplay I love I can hardly believe it. And I'm not talking about the way they've changed their sound. All great bands grow and push the boundaries of their creativity, so I have no gripe with the way they've evolved in that respect. However, while their other ablums are so diverse and take you on a journey, this is just plain boring and, though it pains me to say it, depressing. It's 40 minutes of weak lyrics, soppiness and whining. Won't be buying it. Might listen to their earlier stuff again to try and erase this from my memory!

Can't Wait - But price?

Love the new singles, looks like some great songs on their way but £9 for 9 songs?!?!

Biography

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....
