Coldplay - 'Ghost Stories'

Coldplay - 'Ghost Stories'

Once upon a time, picking over Chris Martin lyrics was a sport, a race to guess the rhyming word. Like Noel Gallagher — and doesn't that just trip off the tongue? — Martin seemed to be filling up space, chucking in a few platitudes to bulk up...

Coldplay - 'Charlie Brown'

Coldplay - 'Charlie Brown'

You can’t call a song ‘Charlie Brown’ and make it worse than the Peanuts theme. I don’t care if you’re Chris Martin. I don’t care if you’re a member of your very own Coldplay gym, or if you recorded it in a church, or if your...

Chris Martin tells Alan Partridge to fuck off. Rob Brydon fronts Coldplay , singing ‘ White Christmas ’ in the voice of Tom Jones . And, at several points, everybody’s wrists light up in rainbow neon colours and make The O2 look like...

Album Review: Coldplay - 'Mylo Xyloto'

Coldplay - 'Mylo Xyloto'

Live review: Coldplay/Jay-Z

Recessions make people act out of character; party animals won’t socialise at all while board game enthusiasts spend nights eternally pub-crawling. Others, like the fifty-something woman stood in front of NME tonight, will spend £50 on a...

The modern world, eh? Time was when you’d get an album, preceded and followed by a couple of singles, and that’d be that. Now, with labels desperately trying to figure out how to keep their clients’ wares afloat, you get ‘leaks’ (some...

Or, ‘The Good One From The New Album’. Achingly earnest it may be, but when Laughin’ Chris Martin finally slips into the inevitable Christ pose that accompanies the wave-your-breadsticks-and-M&S-houmous-in-the-air coda it’s hard not to...
