Album Review
The EP is a glorious return to Coldplay’s mid-’00s explorative period. Opening track ‘All I Can Think About Is You’ begins as a dusky, ambient Radiohead art-throb in which a muffled Martin mumbles about “chaos giving orders”, sounding as if he’s hiding underwater from the political nightmares of 2017. Then, three minutes in, familiar ‘Clocks’ piano chords kick in and the tune becomes a celestial scream of adoration, love rising above Trumpageddon. Aliens, a collaboration with Brian Eno, is even more outré, mingling Spanish guitar with space-age synths. These five tracks climax with ‘Hypnotised’, a solemn country swooner resembling John Lennon’s ‘Mother’, easily their best barnstorming ballad since ‘Fix You’. It’s heartening evidence that Coldplay haven’t entirely been sucked into the machinery while trying to subvert pop music from within. Is it too much to hope that their Avicii period was the experiment, and this the return to the norm? -- Reviewed by nme.com
