Oct 15, 2021“Infinity Sign,” with its pastel-colored disco bounce, New Age keyboards, and distant sample of a chanting crowd that sounds like a Close Encounters visitation over a sold-out soccer stadium. That unique level of thematic specificity notwithstanding, the record itself doesn’t get weighed down by any sort of Rush-size storyline, nor is there some pain-in-the-ass heavy-handed sci-fi message to deal with (beyond the predictably intimated vibes of harmony, wonder, etc.).

In itsThe Album has quite the idea behind it but I think the amateur songwriting and monotony of some tracks does leave more to be desired. In its mediocrity though, there are touches of inspiration and reminders why Coldplay has been so popular for so long. Certainly not their best work but I also might listen to it again before I forget about it. Also, helluva closer.
