Prior to this album, I lumped Coldplay in the same group as Frank Ocean and pre-2014 Drake as music I only listen to after a breakup. I wasn’t the biggest fan of their somber, more laid back tone of music, but I could still appreciate it. That’s why I was super surprised after listening to this album front to back. It takes on a newer style than what I’m used to. Tracks like “Hymn for the Weekend” bring a more lively sound than songs of Coldplay past. The track itself features a jivey piano melody with some pretty sweet vocal work from Beyonce. The album as a whole is much faster than what I’ve heard before, which I enjoyed very very much.
