Everyday Life Tracklist:
I don’t know, I’m kind of liking it. I think it captures a more worldly style, showing Coldplay has matured and expanded out of their U2-esque shadow. Their last couple albums have shown a wider range of their talents. Chris even has changed his vocal style on some of the tracks. This one almost harkens back to the old concept albums from some of the progressive rock masters of the past. Nice efforts here.
I love this album so much! A collective group of songs and music that paint an accurate portrayal of todays world. I can't stop listening to it. I feel this is their best work to date and would highly recommend it. It's one of those albums that should be listened to from beginning to end to get the full experience. It's truly amazing!
I see many people here complain about how they feel that Coldplay has changed and they wish that they went back to the “good old days.” All I have to say is that one can’t expect things to be the same all the time. People change, tastes change, times change, and there is no going back. Personally, I love this album. It’s a nice mix of classic and modern music and I enjoy every aspect of it. I like how Coldplay decided to explore something new. I am especially happy that they made another album after 4 years. I missed them and I welcome their music with open arms.
A beautiful description of our current time through lyrics and amazing complex yet mellow production. I would suggest this album to whoever needs to breath of fresh air (and artistic expression of calmness) in these chaotic times. It is a way for me to exhale. Thank you 🙏 guys!
Bands are allowed to change, of course. They’re people like the rest of us. But I’ve never heard such an uninteresting and offputting collection of songs from a band who also made one of the few albums that doesn’t have a single song that I would skip (X&Y). There’s no joy in their music anymore, and that’s a real bummer.
This album Is so fitting for our troubled times today. For a band that Is as big as they are to put themselves aside and create something so diverse touching hearts of many In a troubled society and planet, selfless Is all I can say! This album Is golden and has so many messages throughout! Thank you Coldplay, I feel It!
Coldplay has an eclectic portfolio. Some albums land perfectly with the entire set reaching its audience; others just meander around becoming fairly unforgettable after the couple of singles. Unfortunately, Everyday Life is the most disappointing thing since Ghost Stories. You keep waiting for that song you can connect with, but so many cuts are notably short and don't go anywhere in particular. Of the 16 tracks, about five are hummable and enjoyable, the other are "what the ...?" Random noise, cussing, arguing ... sorry, it doesn't add anyting to the music; it's just offputting. I'll try to enjoy a couple of songs here, but won't take the CD off the shelf except on very rare occasions. A shame; I love the band.
I connect to this album a lot, and it feels like going home. The album is filled with soul and heart, something we need in the midst of all that’s going on in the Middle East and the world. Thank you for taking a step out and saying what needs to be said ❤️
Love this band to death. Paid to see them in 2017. Favorite artist of all time. Even though this album blended Arabic style music together with their style of music so well, I’m giving it 5 stars... the song ‘Trouble in Town’ is one of the best songs on the record in my opinion, but it has an unneeded conversation in the middle between 2 men and almost every other word is a cuss word, which I was really surprised to hear. And then on the songs ‘Arabesque’ and ‘Guns’, Martin uses several uses of the f word. In the last 27 seconds of the song, Martin says the phrase, “same f*****g blood” twice which was really odd to add because there were no lyrics up to that point for like 3 minutes. Then in ‘Guns’ Martin says the f bomb twice which was unnecessary. Anyways, besides the minor cussing, great album👍👌
It seems as if the bubblegum moniker has gotten to the lads and they set out to make an album that would land some critical acclaim while retaining their fan base. Sadly, this album will likely do neither. While the lead track lends some hope to the fan base, such hope is quickly distinguished upon pressing play to this disjointed mess.
Beautifully crafted. Thank you for pushing boundaries musically and being thoughtful bringing your platform to the masses. Love the band! It’s good for all. Can’t wait to see if they tour soon!!!
It's definitely different from what I was expecting from them, but it wasn't necessarily bad! (I am having issue with it showing up in my music app with all the songs having the same name though..even tried redownloading it all & still doing it. Please fix!)
You have been such an inspirational and inspiring band since the beginning with such creativity and emotions expressed into every song. Hands down have been my favorite band and I have stood by you guys. I believe change is great but, this album seemed rushed and lacks creativity. Also, why would you feel it was necessary to add explicit language into your craftsmanship of work and style?? Young teens who want to follow by good example from your band, this shows lack of good leadership through expressing the bands music. I strongly feel this could have been entirely left out of this album as it does not add any good elements and just shows laziness of creativity of words. Much respect to you guys but, if this continues I will have to search elsewhere for a new band that does not have to follow society but rather express personal growth and self expressions. This is not your best work but, I do enjoy a few of the songs on this album. Hope you guys listen to your fans and show us why we followed you in the first place and supported you through these years. Thank you ❤️
I wish Chris Martin was right when he said “A Head Full Of Dreams” was Coldplay’s last album. Instead we got a few good songs surrounded by music that could put a cocaine addict to sleep. Very unhappy and hope the band comes to their senses.
Was excited when I heard they would coming out with a new album but listening to the samples Of each song before purchasing this is very disappointing. My Advice don’t waste your money. Also it says something that this album is now $6.99 and only have been out for 2 months, not good.
I’ve been a coldplay fan for a while and was nervous after the wait in between their last album and this one. To see a band take the risks that coldplay does on this album when they could’ve so easily phoned in an album showed what drive they have to still be creating! I don’t get why people have mixed feelings on this album, but I know people like different things so I’m here to just say that I love it and it’s one of my favorite albums from them! Trouble in Town in particular is one of my favorite songs of 2019. I would give the album a listen or two before you make your call on it! If you give it a chance, I’m sure you’ll find a connection to it!
I’d like to start by honestly saying most of these reviews are full of morons, Jesus Christ. Yes the album isn’t perfect by any means, but it’s by far the most ambitious thing they’ve done since VLV. To the people who are crying about their being swearing for the first time (seriously how old are y’all), to the people who are calling the entire thing self-indulgent, and to the people saying this is their worst album ever (Really, worse than AHFOD?); Sincerely, get your ears checked. And if you wrote a review before the album even came out, you’re even more of a fool. I love many of the tracks on it; Arabesque, Trouble in Town, and Daddy are some of their best songs to date in my opinion. Main critique would be that this didn’t really need to be a double album, and there could’ve been a bit more fleshed out songs; If you’re not a fan of interludes or filler to put it bluntly, this album might not be for you. Still pretty good album, and I applaud them for just doing whatever the hell they want on this one.
I’ve been a Coldplay fan for the last 15–20 years and have seen them numerous times. YES they have changed their style but who hasn’t? Every great musical group or band evolves over time and I love Coldplay for that. They have evolved but remained authentic and I applaud them for that. This album is different but it’s great! I’m loving it and will forever be a Coldplay fan
Why didn't they release their song "Life is Beautiful" on this album? You tested and teased it live on tour and then release this slow experimental album which touches on all genres of music - not what your fans want! Get back to the Coldplay your fans love - release the songs you play in concert and the sounds your fans love! I am suprised it is even over three stars....
Everyday Life fits together with Ghost Stories, and like it.....it lays flat on the ground. This will be my second EP that Coldplay will not earn, but maybe 1 song on my playlist. The energy is gone and the vocals are just monotone. I wanted badly to attend the next concert....chances are very good I won’t....because, what is Coldplay without energy.....just like any other average band. Guys, you know this is your wheelhouse, when you see the fans go wild and you feel it inside. This one wants the fans to cry....and they say ‘no more like this, please. How can this equal Head Full of Dreams?!?! It doesn’t and dies quietly with the vocals. Sorry, I “AM” a fan of the body of all your work, with exception the two EP titles I mention at the forefront. BRING BACK THE ENERGY.....PLEASE!!!!
I have purchased all of their albums. Didn't even preview before buying their new Album. This album is Such a Self-Righteous PC poltical Garbage. People listen to music to escape Politics. We don't want an earful of propaganda either. And when he sings like he's part of the African American community?...Omg...Barf.
One of the worst albums I have ever heard. We get it Coldplay your worldly. We don’t need to hear how great y’all are and how much you care about things. These songs do nothing to promote or discourage any of there views. It’s just bad music! I hope y’all follow this up very quickly with something else as I would hate to be stuck with this album for another 3 years!
I was very surprised listening to some of the songs on this album, they were very different from past albums (except for a song like orphans which is very mainstream and like AHFOD). This album though, is unbelievable. I’m not a fan of some of the gospel songs like “BrokEn” and “When I Need a Friend” but the whole album has so many under rated songs. “Trouble in Town” is one of the songs that show the band’s true potential and that they haven’t lost it. I’m glad they are doing what they feel is right, and I’m also glad Guy Berryman wrote such good bass lines for these songs compared to AHFOD. He really shined on this album. I was little sad that Jonny didn’t have some epic guitar part for “Guns” though, that would’ve been an awesome guitar orchestra!
