Coldplay Continues their Cold Streak

At this point, I think Coldplay is just cashing in. They've waved goodbye to their art pop-rock pieces of the past and asked for expedited shipping to the radio. Their most successful work to date, Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends, was released almost ten years ago, but as their follow ups to the 2008 album fell flat, Coldplay grasped at the opportunity for changing their genre to pop and soft EDM.

Kaleidoscope's opener "All I Can Think About Is You" is flooded with reverb and Alt-J impressions. The song erupts into a Radiohead ripoff, and, I'm not joking, the song's piano riffs alludes to "Clocks," hopefully as a conscious effort, at least that's what I'll tell myself.

Here's the most surprising, actually least surprising thing in the world: Coldplay's shot with Big Sean on "Miracles (Someone Special)" is tacky. In what I initially thought was sarcasm, Chris Martin inauthentically recalls how his father told him not to give up. Big Sean comes in a few minutes later for a cheeseball verse as the song ventures into bubble gum pop territory followed by a misleading and unrewarding outro.

There's a "remix" of Coldplay's team up with The Chainsmokers, but all that really accomplishes is giving me opportunity to share this video:
