Coldplay - LP7: A Head Full of Dreams

I often go back and forth between Blood to the Head and Viva La Vida.
Both great albums.
I also go back and forth between Ghost Stories and Parachutes as my 3&4.

Maybe this is heresy, but I'd easily take Coldplay over post-2000 U2.

Yellow-Every Teardrop-The Scientist in the first five songs? Not sold on that at all but good on them for playing around with the sets more.

Scientists sound like a song that should be kept for the encore or at least the end of regular set.

Well Chris is now the same age as Bono was when he entered post 2000. Coldplay up to now vs U2 up to 99; no comparison. Coldplay post 2016; signs point to more Bon Jovi than U2.

I know I'm super late to the party, but Viva La Vida might be my favorite album of all time. For some reason I never got into this album, but the last few months I've really connected to it.
I think I have a perfect track listing as well. Double album with Prospekt's March tracks.

Side A
1 - Life In Technicolor
2 - Cemeteries of London
3 - Glass of Water
4 - Lost!
5 - Rainy Day
6 - Yes
7 - Chinese Sleep Chant
8 - Lovers In Japan (Osaka Sun Mix)
Side B
9 - Postcards From Far Away
10 - Viva La Vida
11 - Violet Hill
12 - Prospekt's March/Poppyfields
13 - Strawberry Swing
14 - 42
15 - Death and All His Friends
16 - Life In Technicolor ii

One of the most cohesive albums I've ever heard. Flows incredibly well.
I love the Life In Technicolor opening and closing, plus "The Escapist" segueing into "LIT ii" is seamless and full circle.
"Prospekt's March/Poppyfields" is the most underrated Coldplay song IMO. Really understated and beautiful song.
"Violet Hill", "Lovers In Japan", "Strawberry Swing" and "42" are top notch Coldplay songs.
Again, I realize this is 8 years late, but better late than never.

Yeah I would definitely agree about its cohesiveness and full length listenability. Certainly one of my favorite all time albums.

Are you guys seriously talking about your all time lists? I like Viva La Vida as much as the next person, it's easily my favorite Coldplay album, but it isn't THAT good.

I mean you're entitled to your opinion... but so are we. To some people, it is that good.
