Return to form

After a few very mainstream sounding (and in my opinion lackluster) album releases, Coldplay is back to exploring new frontiers with eclectic instrumentation and amazing guest musicians. Don’t get me wrong, the past 3 albums had some great moments, but they failed to wow me.

Everyday Life won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but in a world that is on the brink of chaos, Chris Martin’s sometimes angry vocals give us a glimmer of hope for not only humankind, but music as we know it. Instead of following the overdone and tired electronic pop trends, Coldplay has decided instead to do the opposite-go back to very raw instrumentation with lots of different sounds-strings, horns, organs, even some electronics and of course the piano and guitar sounds. The album never gets boring.

I find this album as almost a Viva La Vida pt. 2, which i think is due to some of the arrangements and the multitude of instruments. You may not like this album, you might not like Coldplay, but it cannot be argued that this is a wonderful piece of art. I applaud the band for making an album they obviously wanted to make, not one with a sound that was forced upon them by greedy producers.

For music lovers, this album is a no-brainer. For those that only listen to the easily-digested mainstream pop, you won’t get it. And that’s ok. That’s why taylor swift exists.

Explicit -Thumbs down

Too bad I downloaded explicit, I have iTunes family, disappointed it’s an option, rather not have those songs on play list under my purchase.

What happened

This sound bores me. It has nothing to do with bands expanding their sounds. These guys are better than this.
