Hmmm let's see:

1. A lot of interference hates it.
2. A lot of interference says it's like a follow up to my favorite Coldplay record (like that's a bad thing).
3. Someone says Chris Martin's vocals are lower in the mix.

Sounds like I'm gonna love it.

Don't get your hopes up. Mylo Xyloto is much, much better imo. It's not much of a follow up. It is really bad.

MX is horrendous IMO and have no idea why anyone looks back on it fondly. I thought its inconsistency and perky energy was kind of bracing the first time, but I cringe listening to it and its terrible, brickwalled production now. Paradise is legit one of my least favorite songs of the decade. PARA PARA OHHOHHWAOOOAHHHOOOOO

In fact, I'll go against the grain and say I slightly prefer AHFOD. But boy oh boy is it not the direction I wanted them to take. I could see Tourist liking it though if he loved MX.

I'll stand by Princess of China and Major Minus as really good tracks. I might be in the minority with that first one, though.

MX, GS & AHFOD definitely have their moments. Still nothing like their old stuff.

Lol. Not that I have any desire to ever defend Coldplay, but damn. A couple people really feel the need to post their hate for the album repeatedly.

Charlie Brown is a pearler as well.

Big fan of Princess of China, but I'm pretty much a sucker for anything that involves Rihanna.

Hymn for the Weekend always reminds me of Cheers (Drink to That) for its glorification of alcohol consumption.

Not to come in defense of Coldplay but let's be honest here... times have changed and continue to change. Album sales for everyone are like that. It would also help to point out the activity on their singles.

Adele just smashed the sales record a couple weeks ago. People would still buy the record if it was a) any good or b) spawned a smash hit.

Currently, Adventure of a Lifetime is up to a whopping #53 on the pop charts. Magic, the previous album's lead single, reached #14.

Hard to spin this era as a success so far. Many artists are seeing sales drops, but 50% in a year is terrible.

Well I'd argue that Adele's single is just way bigger than anything at the moment, really.

I imagine Coldplay's single will rise. They're hardly "done" by any stretch of the imagination.

Apparently they still have a shot at tying the Beatles record of 7 straight UK #1 albums or something.
