Both Midnight and Magic rule, but I hope the album has more moments like Midnight. I'm really liking the stripped back approach so far, its a nice change from the huge arena rock of Mylo. Looking forward to the rest.

This is actually pretty good... even if I haven't really liked Coldplay for somewhere around 6 years now...

Midnight was fantastic, Magic was pretty decent. This could be another solid even-numbered Coldplay album.

I love this one too even if it takes a bit for the groove to set in. Really gets infectious towards the end.

9 tracks is kind of short, but if they're all as quality as these two I guess it's ok.

The record company must have been twisting their arms to produce something,anything , in order to stay relevant in the retail market...
This shit, can be produced by any garage or basement band...more commercial trash for the sheep. Considering the source, this is offense to the ears, and the reason seventy something rockers in adult diapers are still viable alternatives.

Magic and Midnight - two nice songs, but somehow... it feels lacking. It's just nice, nothing more. But I like the overall chill, simple sound. If only the songs touched me more.

At least it sounds like this will be better than Mylo Xyloto - which was a total trainwreck in my opinion.

Also, since there are only 9 tracks, I expect one prolonged 10 minutes plus song. Possibly the last one.

both songs released thus far have been very good, so I'm legit hoping for a good album this time around.

midnight was very very good.

Magic sounds a bit like album filler though. Weird choice as a first single.

Midnight was good I agree.


Magic on the other hand was underwhelming. You can see them trying some new stuff here compared to MX
but I feel like Chris Martin's singing is still the same (Enough with the 'ooh ooh ooh') and many of
the chords sound familiar.
