Review: Coldplay, A Head Full of Stars
Huffington Post - about 1 year
A Head Full of Dreams begins with the self-titled track that encapsulates the excitement Coldplay experienced putting this album together. An infectious guitar riff is only partially eclipsed by Chris Martin's smooth vocals as the song roars on, high tempo and unrelenting. The title, "A Head Full of Dreams," references the dream-like fantasy Coldplay is attempting to impart upon us throughout their seventh studio album, released on December 4, 2015. Boasting 11 tracks and clocking-in at just over 45 minutes, A Head Full of Dreams packs a punch. Guitarist Jonny Buckland called A Head Full of Dreams "night to the day" in comparison to 2014's Ghost Stories. Ghost Stories was released on the cusp of Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow's "conscious uncoupling," and the themes and sounds explored on the album were definitively the band's deepest and darkest on their discography. But on A Head Full of Dreams, not only are the music and lyrics brighter and more colorful, but the outside talent ...

Live review: KROQ's Weenie Roast y Fiesta
LATimes - almost 5 years
Coldplay, Incubus, Soundgarden and more define a rock aesthetic. What exactly does a rock band need -- and in what quantity -- to distinguish itself in today's exuberantly eclectic pop landscape? Along with branded beach balls and remembrances of Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys, that question seemed to fill the air Saturday at Irvine's Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, where KROQ-FM (106.7) presented its annual Weenie Roast y Fiesta. The daylong concert -- headlined by Coldplay, with performances by Incubus, the Offspring and an unannounced Soundgarden, among others -- offered several successful takes on defining a pop aesthetic, but little consensus on the matter. Still, the Weenie Roast's variety suggested something more promising: that in "a Black Eyed Peas world," as one KROQ DJ put it, rockers are thinking hard about how to specialize their music. A big crowd response, when it occurred, seemed almost secondary to the effort involved. PHOTOS: KROQ's Weenie Roast y Fiesta 2012 ...

Coldplay Pays Tribute To Adam Yauch (Video)
Beleb Dirty Laundry - almost 5 years
During a concert at the Hollywood Bowl last night the band Coldplay gave a heartfelt tribute to Adam Yauch that has gone viral. If you haven’t seen the amazing video then, never fear I have the video right here. Trust me when I say not only will you love it but it will probably make you a little misty eyed as well. The news of Beastie Boys Adam Yauch’s death hit a lot of those in and out of the music very hard yesterday. He had an impact on those who knew him but those for of us who didn’t know him it was his music that impacted us. Coldplay is just the first of I am sure many that will pay tribute to Yauch. While playing to a sold out crowd last night Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion gave a slowed down performance of the Beastie Boys hit song “You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party)”. During the song the guys gave a shout out to Adam as well as sent out their love for the group that left such a mark on the music business. I thought the tribute wa ...

Review: Coldplay goes big at the Hollywood Bowl
LATimes - almost 5 years
At the start of “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall,” the last song Coldplay performed at the Hollywood Bowl on Tuesday night, the band flicked on halos of lasers, cued a four-on-the-floor drum beat and sang about how it wanted to “turn the music up, I got my records on / I shut the world outside until the lights come on.” For an act that crankier critics accuse of playing middlebrow post-indie-rock for Apple adverts, this was awfully ravey. The London quartet, one of the biggest bands to emerge in the 2000s, is certainly grounded in earnest guitar-and-piano emoting (with the good taste and huge budgets that afford Brian Eno as a producer). But that move implies that it sees the rise of dance-music culture as a stakes-raising challenge (or maybe a threat to its livelihood). Tuesday’s show, the first of a three-night Bowl stand this week, proved why Coldplay is the last stadium-sized rock band left standing in contemporary pop -- a feat perhaps unrepeatable for future rockers in a lapt ...

Best Guitarist in Pop Music – Readers Poll
Pop Crush - almost 5 years
Ethan Miller / Frank Micelotta / Jemal Countess, Getty Images When you think of pop music, accomplished aren’t usually the first types of artists that come to mind. However, within the pop realm, there are a handful of musicians who can really slay on a six-string. We’ve selected six fined-tuned guitarists in pop music and we want to know: Who do you think plays best? Kicking off our rundown of the best pop guitarists is Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, followed by Bruno Mars, both of whom have displayed their guitar prowess on tracks like ‘Moves Like Jagger’ and ‘Runaway Baby,’ respectively. Levine and Mars are followed by Coldplay guitarist Jonny Buckland, who is followed by fellow John and axe expert, John Mayer. Of course, this list wouldn’t complete without an appearance from pop-rock icon Prince. And we can’t forget country-pop cutie Taylor Swift, who prides herself on her guitar-driven tracks. Girls can rock out too, fellas! So, PopCrush readers, which pop superstar kick ...
