"The same fucking blood!", it breaks out of Chris Martin out. We are at the end of the song "Arabesque", and Coldplay, this Band has traded the understood your early tears ballads to miss those Kids already with oversized stadium anthems, and plays in this song, her powerful Version of the Africanized desert Blues. This sounds very compelling, if the Afrobeat heir Femi starts Kuti to his saxophone solo. And a voice says: "Music is the weapon of the future."
at the Latest, in this Song, her best since years, we know what Coldplay on their new Album "Everyday Life" goes. It is an attempt of reconciliation between the peoples, a call to more brotherhood and peace, even if it is just very difficult. But: "Same fucking blood!" and the count.

in order To this endeavor, get in shape, have chosen the English for a double album. "Sunrise" is the title of the first part; he begins with plaintive strings before it goes to the pleasant-sounding morning walk in the Church. You have to wonder at the latest, in the third Song surprised about where the band's trademark melodies are still there, the very striving for the top, if possible, up to the stars. And is pleased to report that Coldplay have not decided on her eighth Studio album for the easiest way.
Maybe it's true Yes, that is Coldplay, after their collaboration with Beyoncé, or even the Streaming kings, The Chainsmokers have become the "most peculiar Pop-Band" of the present, as written by the "Guardian" a week ago.
So "weird" but it's not really, if one of the most successful Bands in the world sings a simple Gospel, together with the Phrase "Lord, shine a light on me". Or if Chris Martin masked as a singer in the Park and a Song on the acoustic guitar schrummt, surrounded by birdsong. You will simply say: Look, we don't draw Superstars, but to know the life, are part of it and sing very loosely with you.

What is not a Problem, especially since the Band calls on "Everyday Life" without the Messianic zeal of U2 to the world improvement. But as soon as the sun went with a Church choir singing and the second, with "Sunset" titled half begins, is "Everyday Life", the ambitious so therefore, a arg just knitted the Album. One that is engaged, as in the protest song "Guns", in which Chris Martin against gun violence and possession of ansingt. One in which the Band in the Single "Orphans" is very well intentioned in the Ethnopop-trap (and the Pathos and the stadium size again).
The Album ends after a few Soundscapes with the title song. "Hallelujah!", Chris Martin is singing in the silent-circuit. And whether this is really the right conclusion, at the end of an album that would cover all cultures to and including (which is also reflected in the Arabic script on the Cover), is an open question.
