All I Can Think About You is one of their best songs in a long ass time.

Listened to ALIENS, seemed pretty interesting. Hypnotised and All I Can Think About You are pleasant.

The Chainsmoking song is a toxic inclusion. Can't be arsed with that.

I'm out in Stade de France for Coldplay now. Opener is on the stage. No clue who the heck it is. Can't tell if I'm losing touch, or if Coldplay offers a grand stage to a truly up lesser known artist.

Great, now I have to sit through Tove Lo.

If you want old, Coldplay gives a schpeel about the 90s before they play Don't Panic. Das old.

The 90s were the golden era of music!

Coldplay's production is the best in the world IMO.

Because Coldplay switches producers so often, it really depends on the album. Parachutes is perfect and Rush of Blood sounds really good, but X&Y overdoes it on the reverb in order to capture that arena rock hugeness. It doesn't sound horrible, but everything is kind of a dull wash. Meanwhile, Eno did a masterful job with Viva La Vida because of course he did.

Mylo Xyloto's production where things started going downhill. That album is sterile, brickwalled garbage. Hurts Like Heaven in particular is HTDAAB-level bad. Just compare Yellow to Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall; all of the space in the mixing is gone and it physically hurts to listen to beyond a fairly low volume because the mastering job was botched. Ghost Stories, on the other hand, sounded pretty good because they weren't overdubbing the hell out of everything and at least tried to give the album atmosphere, but it's a little impersonal sounding for what it is. I don't have much to say about Head Full of Dreams; it's pop industry standard, optimized for radio, and lacks personality.

Their two worst sounding records don't have "Coldplay" listed as a production credit, so that says something right there. Now, they aren't credited on Viva La Vida either, but Eno wasn't about to let that thing leave the studio not sounding great. In general, I think it's for the worse that two of their last three albums were handed off to pop producers.

Oh I appreciate their music production, but I was actually referring to the show production. The live setup is fantastic. It makes you like songs like that silly chainsmokers song.

There was a gap of like 12 hours between those two posts so I thought you had changed subjects. Oh well!

12 hours is roughly the difference between sleep and waking up and looking at photos on a Sunday morning, no?

Didn't they have a live Paris show a few years back?

They do look like they absolutely own the stadium shows, would love to see one.
