Very cold play

🙀 sounds ROUGH, il buy it when it's €2. 99 😕👌
As a longterm fan of Coldplay I was excited to download the new album and listen. I was so disappointed! There are only a couple of tracks that I like, the rest are so boring. I actually haven't listened right to the end as I was so put off by the dirge of this music. Come on Coldplay, go back to what we all know and love!!

No rock and no roll
Massive massive disappointment self-indulgent crap gone the same way as muse.
Not going to listen
After Coldplay saying they are going to not tour because of climate change is just misguided, woke and sad...
From the snippets I have heard the songs sound dire anyway. Stopped listening
Doesn’t do it for me
Coldplay, superb band couldn’t do anything wrong my absolute heroes national treasures much respect to the band but oh dear.
I was so looking forward to this album, I pre ordered straight away as usual but after listening to the album several times what a waste of good money and feel that bad about it I really think I should have a refund since its barely worthy time wise of being classified as a full on single album let alone double.
Have now read through all the reviews and have to agree with all the one star reviews with negative comments I feel it’s that bad.
However this album is for the people who have rated five stars and give positive reviews as they are entitled to there opinion as I, and have there own taste and expectations, ideas of value for money etc.
I feel that disappointed and bad about it that I deleted it from my iTunes library thus lost my money, shame I couldn’t have passed it on to save somebody else from maybe wasting there money or saving money either way.
I’m a big Coldplay fan, preordered the album and I’ve listened to it throughout many times now. Unfortunately I just find it underwhelming for the most part. There’s only three tracks I enjoy and I just don’t think I’ll buy a tour ticket (if there is one eventually). I’m genuinely at a loss how some critics have labelled it the best album of the decade, personally it’s easily forgettable and I’m unlikely to keep coming back for more. Orphans, Cry and Everyday life I will probably favourite into a personal “best of” Coldplay list along side other classics. For me it’s the worst album they’ve released but I guess you can’t please everyone! Hoping the next one is more fun and punchy.
I was really looking forward to this album after hearing Orphans. I was hoping it would be as surprising as Ghost Stories. Unfortunately, other than Orphans it’s largely a bland affair. Perhaps I need to give it more time but it certainly isn’t an inspired listen at the moment.
Back To Their Best

After a few “poppy" albums albums which I’m sure pleased the crowds, Coldplay have finally recorded an album again as the band who brought us Parachutes. The delicacy and intimacy will not be for everyone, but this album is as groundbreaking as it is beautiful. You can’t approach it in bits and pieces, it requires a full listen through.
