    Coldplay are done for. The last two albums have been really forgettable so I don't expect anything great from another one, esp when it's coming out so soon after GS.

    I fail to see how it coming out so soon after Ghost Stories is setting it up for failure. Numerous bands throughout the 60s and 70s released albums annually, somtimes 2 a year, many of which are considered classics. Ghost Stories seems like something the band needed to get out of their system. I would not be suprised if the band had been working on this new album even before Ghost Stories was conceived.

    Plus, did Coldplay even go on tour this year? Them not doing many live shows probably gave them more time to write another album.

    "will always a hard pill for any of us swallow"

    Maybe it was because I'd recently listened WTCFM. May not have been referencing LP. :lol:

    I believe that going into a studio with the mentality that this is probably going to be your final album is the best way to go into a studio. It inspires the artist to do the best they can possibly do as a "last effort". They never said it was their last album. They only said that they were going into the studio with the idea of this one being the last they'll create. Who knows? After this album, Jonny might end up in a car crash. Chris could lose his voice. Will might be abducted by aliens. Anything can happen, after all. :p

    I don't know man. If their last two efforts had been solid I probably wouldn't have felt this way.

    New song for the new Angelina Jolie-directed movie.

    Sounds very different. Poppy at first. I love the ending though.

    Also, this is the most popular "Ink" video.

    It's alright. Kinda like a mix of Ink and Moving To Mars.

    Sounds like a second grade Ink. I like it but I'm not crazy about it.

    I wish the sampled drums would just stop already. I can't take Will Champion seriously.

    Miracles is great!

    It's poppy, but really catchy and easy on the ears. It would have been perfect for Ghost Stories or at least as a b-side, it's basically Ink part 2. I still hate singles though, because I'm greedy and now I want even more :D

    The last minute of the song :wub:

    I would love it if their next album is similar to this, but that's probably just my blind fanboyism for Coldplay talking. They could give me anything and it would end up growing on me at the very least.

    I just remembered that I wanted to find this video somewhere online later but now I can't find the full version of the Ghost Stories artwork video. Anyone know where?

    Thank you. I've been trying to figure out what's been missing from Coldplay lately and you nailed it. Coldplay sounded much better when Will actually PLAYED the drums.

    The entire Ghost Stories is played on a drum pad and it sort of fits with the music. But they're overusing it way too much. Will is still a beast, he should be doing more.

    I actually really like the samples.
