3.0 out of 5 stars A few nice tracks but Coldplay need to rediscover their "Magic", feels like an EP!, 28 July 2014
This review is from: Ghost Stories (Audio CD)
I'll start by saying I am a big fan. Since "Parachutes" at least to some degree every album has had a sence of magic. In my view this is the first album of theirs to miss this. Ironically one of the only songs to come close is the song "Magic", another is "Sky Full Of Stars" which although very familiar territory is at least positive and sounds like "Coldplay"

The problem is this album doesn't come from a happy place but rather that melancholy heart that in the hands of certain writers bears beautiful fruit. The problem is Coldplay don't do sad, their sound is happy and positive if a little ambiguous. Perhaps chis martins marital status had some thing to do with it I don't know but they don't wear mournful too well

Without the two mentioned songs and maybe one or two others this would be nothing more than a passable EP especially as there are only 9 tracks, though if they were all great i would have forgave that. Hoping they rediscover their mojo for the next album!
