    Alright sorry for ever doubting you and HOLY SHIT! Officially hyped for this new album! That album art is sick! Magic sounds pretty awesome, but I think I like Midnight better.

    Also, I'm glad that Atlas wasn't released on this album. It was meant for the movie, and it probably would've felt like it was just thrown in there.

    Magic is a interesting take on a new Coldplay. I've noticed the bass is insane on new Coldplay. It's killing it on my headphones.

    yooooooooo. 2/2 as far as I'm concerned. I love the atmosphere and the fact that the album is 9 songs.

    Upon initial 3 listens, I'm not a fan of Magic. I mean, it's not BAD but it doesn't have the same impact Midnight had.

    True. It doesn't have the same uniqueness. But I enjoy it and it fits as a lead single

    I'm not digging Magic nearly as much as I have Midnight, although it's still good. I'm still incredibly excited for Ghost Stories though. I can't wait until May 19th for it! :(

    I was honestly expecting a way later date, around the summer or something. So it's nice to see a mid-May release.

    True. It could have come out a lot later.

    Though I don't like Magic as much as Midnight, I'm really like the atmospheric direction they seem to be going in. I'm really loving the bass and piano work on these two tracks.

    I definitely prefer Magic over Midnight.

    Edit: Not as good on my second listen. That's basically two misses for me on this album so far.

    Seeming like this isn't going to be the Coldplay album for me. Sigh.

    Oh, I love this song. AND THE ALBUM ART. Couldn't be more excited! 9 songs though? I'm expecting hidden tracks guise.

    It's ridiculously good!

    Or there might just be longer track lengths. I would love to see that. Let the songs breathe.

    Don't know about you guys, but to me "Magic" is pretty damn awesome! It's pretty damn groovy for starters; I've never jammed so hard to an acoustic beat before! The production is brilliant! They stripped down their instruments significantly, but still kept the same over-produced sound of Mylo Xyloto, with the echoing, choruses and whatnot; and it sounds amazing! Also noticed that it has the same ambient noise in the background as "Midnight". Is that this album's common sound? Because if it is, it's gonna be a really awesome, spooky touch to the rest of the album.

    Wait.. there it is! That's why this album's called Ghost Stories! It's gonna have a "haunted" feeling, isn't it? A mysterious album, if you will? First acoustic peace (Parachutes), then an alt rock symphony (Rush of Blood), then a space rock odyssey (X&Y), then an art rock masterpiece (Viva la Vida), then an explosion of technicolor (Mylo Xyloto), and now a mysterious ambience? (Ghost Stories)

    Fuck I'm excited for this album now! Haven't felt this pumped for an album since the lead-up Living Things! Lucky I live in a Friday release country so i can get the album on May 16th instead of the 19th!

    My god, that is amazing, isn't it? I just love how Coldplay does something so radically different each time! I remember falling in love with the Mylo Xyloto artwork when it was revealed, and I feel the same for this one and the artwork for "Magic" as well!

    Magic is a good track but not nearly as great as Midnight, that's for sure. But the fact that I can say that I like it is already big, not being a Coldplay fan to begin with. Also, the art looks pretty interesting. Well, can't wait to hear more!

    I like the non-stadium feel to "Magic" and "Midnight". Feels more intimate. :)
