Goodbye Gwyneth has really grown on me, but their newest album really is complete and total utter shit.

I saw them a few weeks back. I had seats in the nosebleed section (as opposed to being on the floor as I was during the last tour) so the experience was only ok. You really need to be amongst it to enjoy the show, so I envied everyone down there.

The tour reignited my interest in their catalogue and I have an increased regard for Ghost Stories. The whole album will be mostly remembered for big dumb pop song Sky Full of Stars, but it's otherwise quite an enjoyable ride. Perhaps remove Sky Full of Stars (and Ink?) and replace with All My Friends andr Atlas and it is something that on the whole, I would be particularly fond of.

Ghost Stories at least suggests that they are prone to restlessness, which they need to be after the stinker that was Head Full of Dreams, which just comes across to me as a lazy and far, far weaker reimagination of Mylo Xyloto.

Totally agree on their last album. The most amazing thing about it is that it makes a quite shit album in Ghost Stories look really, really good. Always in My Head, Magic and Midnight are great tracks. More than I can say of anything off their latest.

Coldplay - LP7: A Head Full of Dreams

I really do not like Mylo Xyloto and Head Full of Dreams, but Ghost Stories was at least a cool skeleton of a record. Some nice pieces and ideas and moments of inspiration, though it's not quite satisfying as a complete album.

As a break-up album it's laughably bad. Borderline as bad as they get. But as a Coldplay album it's got quite a few salvageable moments.

I have reached a point with Coldplay that I have with U2. Let's have the hits and get drunk and stoned.

If you play new things, cool, I hope they rock.

Apparently a couple songs are being produced by The Chainsmokers. If so, I am not excited for that at all.
I've been listening through their early stuff lately and it's so good. Bigger Stronger, See You Soon, Sparks, Careful Where You Stand, Everything's Not Lost, One I Love, etc. All way better than the new stuff.
I am a fan of Ghost Stories. Another's Arms, Midnight, Always In My Head, Fly On -- all excellent.

In fairness, I do think the chainsmokers are a good thing for pop music. So it could be worse.

Get Ryan Tedder in here.

Would you prefer some other "hip young cool" asshat like Adam Levine? I didn't think so.

Oh. Closer vibes really well.

Everything else they do is total shit. But that's their most recent and I wouldn't complain if more pop music was like it.

I don't get this hype over Chainsmokers. I thought they're joke group making songs about recent pop culture shit.

Here it is.

The good news is that it's for The Chainsmokers' album, so it might be a one time thing.
It's definitely a new low for them.

This is as generic a Coldplay song as you can get. Shocking.
