Coldplay's music is mesmerizingly moving. I spent a good part of yesterday listening to old and new tracks coming to the conclusion that Coldplay possesses the soul, creativity, and musical perfection that many bands lack. It just seems like so much fine-tuning and thought is placed into each bar, and that each song can be split into a hundred layers of intricacy. Really, it seems by comparison few artists if any on the current top 100 are as genuinely "music" as Coldplay is. Even EDM can evoke a great deal of emotion; see Zedd (and a "Sky Full of Stars" on the new Coldplay record). It just doesn't feel like any one artist has as much musical integrity. Most need multiple writers to come up with intricate pieces. A song such as iTunes' current #1 "Problem" lacks the depth and definition of its backing tracks (although Ariana provides fantastic vocals). It just seems that Coldplay is one of the last greats left that can evoke emotion with meaningful, multi-layered songs that are only exacerbated live. I plan to make an event out of listening to the band's new album "Ghost Stories" in full.
