    It is, as ever, heart-on-sleeve stuff, with all of Coldplay’s musical diversions bound together by Martin’s golden gift for melody, almost simplistically direct lyrics and emotive crooning. But, oh my goodness, you’d have to be made of sterner stuff than I to resist.

    Everyday Life regularly steps to the left-field, proving that Coldplay are more adventurous than they’re often given credit for.

    It’s a band whose great talent has always been its aspirational one-world melodies, now sounding much more like the world.

    An intriguingly diverse "double" (well, 53 minutes) album. [Jan 2019, p.25]

    Here’s what it is, though: quietly ambitious, occasionally ham-handed, decidedly political, dopily mystical, surprisingly pointed, and mostly pretty good. And, maybe most importantly, it is unexpected, in good and bad ways.

    Arabesque is as good as anything they’ve done in the last 10 years, with French lyrics and echoes of the intensity of Primal Scream’s If They Move Kill ’Em refracted through a skronking jazz filter. But they’re rather less engaging when they hit the stadium preset buttons.

    Even the nimble and funny "Guns" and the nothing-you-haven't-heard-from-Coldplay-before "Champions of the World" and "Orphans" aren't enough to forgive the shortcomings of the other tracks. Over the course of the whole record, the uninspired songwriting becomes a bit tiring, so the album as a whole is a disappointment for a band with so much talent and past successes.

    The proof that Coldplay is still capable of doing amazing music. The songs are so different from each other, but all of them, amazing in their way.

    Another perfect album by Coldplay. The best songs are Orphans, Church, Trouble and Cry Cry Cry.

Everyday Life opens up to be their own point of view of the world and what it needs to change. Expand
