I mean when they were good, they managed to rip off Kraftwerk and not totally ruining the original vibe.

Coldplay - LP7: A Head Full of Dreams

Ghost Stories is a really good album. I've been listening to it a lot lately and I think it may be my 2nd favorite behind "Rush of Blood to the Head."
Great vibe and cohesiveness. It's sort of like Coldplay's "Original Soundtracks 1". It's a great album to listen to during late night driving. "Sky Full of Stars" feels a bit out of place, but gives the album some great energy at the end.

Anyone read the Coldplaying.com forums? There's quite a funny thread at the moment where someone is trying to compare A Head Full of Dreams to Pop. It's a WTF thread lol.

Pop is a masterpiece when comparing it to A Head Full of Dreams.

Pop and A Head Full of Shit both contracted "too many cooks" syndrome but Pop was so much better .

I get the comparison from a band timeline perspective... but really the albums are nothing alike lol. At all.

I've only listened to a couple of tracks. It didn't strike me as bad or anything, but I still need to hear the majority of the album.

Here's how I rate their other 6 albums:
1 - X and Y
2 - Mylo Xyloto
(Love those 2)

Then,
3 - A Rush Of Blood To The Head
4 - Parachutes
(Good albums by all means, but it was X and Y that got me hooked on the band)

And then, the terrible ones
5 - Ghost Stories
6 - Viva La Crap

I found Ghost Stories tedious because the lyrical content was all lovey-dovey crap, and most of the songs were boring.

As for Viva, I found it pretentious, especially with putting 2 different songs onto 1 track. Why?

Speaking of that, this new album, track 8 is two seperate songs. Why??? What is even the point? Why not make them track 8 and track 9??

My ranking would go like this:

1. Mylo Xyloto
2. Viva La Vida
3. X&Y
4. A Rush Of Blood To The Head
5. Ghost Stories
6. Parachutes

I haven't listened to the new one enough for ranking yet.

It's just very far from the general consensus which has Rush of Blood, Parachutes and Viva La Vida as their three best albums, and X&Y, MX and the new one as the three worst. Your ranking is basically the opposite.

My opinions do sometimes tend to be that way with things. I just really enjoyed X&Y and MX. For the record though, I do like Parachutes and AROBTTH.

GS and VLV are about level, but I haven't heard VLV in a long time, so it might actually beat GS... but I was not impressed with those 2 at all.

For the record, my 2 favourite Coldplay songs are Paradise and Talk.

01 - Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends
02 - A Rush of Blood to the Head
03 - Mylo Xyloto
04 - Parachutes
05 - X&Y
06 - Ghost Stories
07 - A Head Full of Dreams

Parachutes and X&Y switch every now and then.
