    Same here! I was listening to the whole AROBTTH album yesterday and felt a dire need for the LP8 or at least a single or something... :laughing:

    I have a challenge for you. Play the AROBTTH album in one piece but for each song its instrumental version. I've already done this and it was a completely different experience for me. :D

    I will do that tomorrow! I know, it's always different because there's no Chris but sometimes instruments do all the work. Sometimes, I prefer instrumental Coldplay songs. For example Life In Technicolor ii, of which I think is their best song, this song doesn't even need vocals. All of the instruments do already sing together (in my opinion)!

    Great! Let me know what you think of that.

    I agree with you. It might make you learn to appreciate and admire what it takes to put notes together and build a melody upon them. However, every now and them I realize that a large portion of an instrumental is mostly a particular melody being played over again. I seldom recognize that as I focus mainly on vocals if a singer is singing. :D

    Life in Technicolor II? That's a beautiful song with an uplifting melody. It sounds like when you wake up in the morning and begin to believe that the upcoming day will be bright!

    To my mind, A Whisper is a song that works better without vocals. I enjoy listening to its instrumental version more than the actual version with vocals. I see it more as a song that could be used like background music during credits at the end of a film. :)

    Ooh, believe me, I've been digging out those things already!
    Well, I'm quite the opposite then! I always listen to guitar parts and melodies, in this case I listen to Jonny. Of course I also listen to vocals when the singer sings but when I like a song very much I always listen to noises and melodies, sometimes in the background, which are mainly played on guitar.

    Heard this on the radio, found it fairly catchy, especially the chorus. "If you never try then you never know", oh, one more reason to stick to this song. :D

    I didn't know anything about the new Kacey Musgraves album "Golden Hour" and I learned that she won a Grammy for Best Album of the Year and I gave it a listen (BTW really good album, I loved the production). My favourite song was "Rainbow", which at first I thought it was some kind of cover, cause I was sure I've listen to it again. I had forgotten that she performed the song with Chris in Global Citizen Festival in South Africa.

    Snow Patrol's amazing set at the Lollapalooza festival in Chile two weeks ago!!!!!!


    Mobile Link: https://youtu.be/A2MmU7e0aOU

    My favourites of their set:
    Chocolate (5:08)
    Crack The Shutters (8:22) which is one of my favourite SP songs!
    Open Your Eyes (16:22)
    Empress (12:00) (at 13:35, Gary had a big crack in his voice unfortunately. Forgive him because he's not the best singer in the world but that also makes it great to hear him putting so much effort to sing those high notes. I've seen him doing better by the way)
    Heal Me (29:38)

    Who's up for some shoegazeeeeee? Heard this band as the opening act for a Foo Fighters concert I went to a while back and they were amazing. This was a standout track though. Full of dense, rich production, raw energy, sound, power...... everything I look for in a shoegaze track. The live version was even better. It was so good.

    I am currently listening to the new single by Taylor Swift.



    It's not because I'm mesmerized or pleasantly impressed by it. It's just because I'm intrigued and stunned due to the fact how someone who released such an album as Reputation could bring out ME! afterwards. Well, what an interesting and unexpected reinvention... I keep replaying this thinking "Is this real? How could this happen? What's going on at all?" and wondering why she has decided to choose this route. I understand that this is sort of a throwback to her early pop attempts. She might have grown tired of being badass as she was one during the whole Reputation era, thus, she could have chosen to reveal her bubbly self or become more joyful.

    I don't either loathe and dismiss or completely adore this song. (Maybe thanks to the inclusion of Joel Little as a producer, the man who helped make the Lorde's debut album.) It's just one of the moments when I'm totally amazed and bewildered, trying to enjoy a piece of music but scratching my head all at the same time. The lyrics are cheerful and quite easy to sing along and I get the message of it. Yet I'm cringing at it and doing my best to take it seriously. (Hey kids! Spelling is fun! Like really? - Sure, this is funny but I feel so embarrassed because of that although I truly want to simper and let my inner child speak for himself.) Somehow, it also features Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco who is (shall I say) a suitable person to carry this with Taylor. (Sorry for ruining this for you. However, I would like to see and hear Chris Martin sing this with her too!) Both of them have shown some good chemistry with each other which is a joy to behold. It felt like watching a Disney movie with a princess and prince which is slightly unusual for my age but you know what? Once a child, always a child. Nevertheless, I'm ambivalent about this new release.
