A Sky Full Of Stars

Forget this. The rest of Coldplay’s upcoming album Ghost Stories might be a new spin on Parachutes, but even if it is (it won’t be), “A Sky Full of Stars” will still ruin it. Indelibly. With “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” and “Paradise”, they pulled their brand of rock into a circle of shameless pop friends, dressed it in pop clothes, and taught it to let go of its inhibitions. But the second single from Ghost Stories sees rock ten years down the line from that very incident, having drifted into an unhappy marriage with neither the backbone nor the charm it once possessed. It’s hollow, sexless, and it should feel guilty when it looks at old photographs.
