i don’t know if im the only one that has noticed this but since 2009, coldplay has repeated a pattern. they create this amazing album: vlv, ghost stories, everyday life - that you can really see passion and art direction in; and then they follow it up with actual shit: mylo xyloto, AHFOD, and now this. coldplay needs to break out of this cycle bc clearly: im sick of it

i was able to see japanese breakfast live last night, and this album translates PERFECTLY live. it was my first concert back after covid and honestly, i couldn't have asked for a better live performance. the whole night was magical- it was filled with tears, joy, and laughter. i wont stop thinking about it for a while.

Thank your for participating in the list! Here is the link: https://www.albumoftheyear.org/user/riskr/list/34227/aotys-favorite-album-closers/

The final song of an album is one of the most important things to it. To make you feel satisfied, an album closer has to look at everything an album has done and say, "Hey, how am I going to make a satisfying ending to this story?" Album closers are incredibly hard to execute and many don't feel how they should. It takes a lot of talent for an artist to wrap up their own piece of work effectively and make a listener feel satisfied.

Which leads me to my question: what is your favorite album closer/finale of all time and why?

Hello friend, I hope you're having a great day! If you have any interest in participating in a list I'm making, here's the prompt:

Aliens have come down from a previously unknown planet, and touch down right in front of your house. You come outside, and they speak English somehow, but they ask you for one thing- to give them a human album. You have an MP3 player, but it only can hold one album of any length. You can give the aliens any album for any reason, but please explain why you chose the album you chose.

Thank you for answering (if you do), and have a great day!

100%. it's super nice to see how much critics slobber over old musicians past their primes and simultaneously see users like giving them mediocre scores LMAO

i like it here more, even if the userbase is a lot smaller (which may be a good thing too) because the website just feels way more intuitive and modern and, like you said, there's a much greater sense of community!! that's why i've stayed reviewing music here for a decently long time! super happy to see you here c:
