I don't know what happened to the old Coldplay. This is not like all the other albums. They've gone too mainstream! Disapointing.
A Little Bit Of Everything
While this album may have a different aura than most of Coldplay’s albums, it opens a window of opportunity to sing and express songs about our everyday lives. The album takes you through the highs and lows of most people’s lives and in the end will make you feel like a champion of the world. Thanks for the catchy, experimental, and thoughtful tracks of the future of Alternative. Also, I’m glad there’s a clean version!
In a lot of ways...
This is early Coldplay...Less production, more vocal emphasis. Like several others, I'm partial to the clean version. But I love this album! Beautiful!
Clean version of it
I like that they made a clean version
It’s sad to see such a good and experienced band release such terrible music. Not a single song is worth the time or $1.99. Please don’t waste your time or money.
Album is good, but why is the clean version not on sale?
Why are both versions not on sale?
Sooo glad there’s a clean version
I’m upset they felt the need to include explicit lyrics in 3 of their songs but I guess I’m also just so grateful they gave us an option to purchase the clean version 😊
So thankful for ‘بنی آدم’song
Return to form
After a few very mainstream sounding (and in my opinion lackluster) album releases, Coldplay is back to exploring new frontiers with eclectic instrumentation and amazing guest musicians. Don’t get me wrong, the past 3 albums had some great moments, but they failed to wow me.
Everyday Life won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but in a world that is on the brink of chaos, Chris Martin’s sometimes angry vocals give us a glimmer of hope for not only humankind, but music as we know it. Instead of following the overdone and tired electronic pop trends, Coldplay has decided instead to do the opposite-go back to very raw instrumentation with lots of different sounds-strings, horns, organs, even some electronics and of course the piano and guitar sounds. The album never gets boring.
I find this album as almost a Viva La Vida pt. 2, which i think is due to some of the arrangements and the multitude of instruments. You may not like this album, you might not like Coldplay, but it cannot be argued that this is a wonderful piece of art. I applaud the band for making an album they obviously wanted to make, not one with a sound that was forced upon them by greedy producers.
For music lovers, this album is a no-brainer. For those that only listen to the easily-digested mainstream pop, you won’t get it. And that’s ok. That’s why taylor swift exists.
This is a terrible, lifeless, boring album from one of the best bands in the world. I’m not sure how this even happened but this is just not good.
