Coldplay Is Definitely a Band in DeclinePosted: May 5, 2011
Is it just me or is Coldplay not the iconic superstar pop group they once were? Probably a combination of the euro-trash-techno-club-monotone devolution of the mainstream pop aesthetic, as well as the fact that Viva la whatever that album was pretty much sucked, and I don’t have high hopes for future Coldplay. Personally I think Chris Martin should take some time off to record some stripped down acoustic/piano based tracks and see what happens. Could be some solid therapy, and a good change of direction, cause the band has never achieved the sound that they achieved on their debut, ‘Parachutes’. From the paranoid and haunting atmosphere of ‘Spies’ to the simplistic beauty of ‘Don’t Panic’, that album is just a classic album in pop music. Just straight up solid guitar based pop music that you just don’t hear anymore.
