Coldplay - ghost stories

For their sixth album Coldplay toned down the big sound somewhat, though there is plenty of their anthemic rock on show, in the dancey and euphoric "Sky full of stars" especially. More interesting though are the more low-key tracks like "Magic" which still manages to pack in Coldplay-esque melody magic (ahem) without the bombast. "Midnight" is a real grower, mysterious and beautiful.

Some say the album will not suit many of their fans who like the big tunes blasting out of their car stereos, i still found the album perfect for a roadtrip personally. Its an interesting and layered album, sometimes delicate and sometimes esoteric. And so often really good.
