Coldplay

A Head Full Of Dreams (LP)

$28.75

Limited double 180 gram Black vinyl LP pressing (no longer colored vinyl) housed in die cut wide single pocket sleeve. Includes color inner sleeves, poster and digital download. 2015 release, the seventh studio album from the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning British band. A Head Full Of Dreams is the follow-up to their 2014 album Ghost Stories. The album was produced by Rik Simpson and Stargate. Coldplay began working on A Head Full of Dreams in the summer of 2014 while they were promoting their sixth album Ghost Stories. Revitalized, they’ve made an album that’s bursting with energy, color and big, life-affirming moments such as the deliciously ebullient first single ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’ and the rocket-powered ‘Hymn for the Weekend.’ Coldplay has never enjoyed making a record more than this one. Nor have they been happier with the results.

Released swiftly after Ghost Stories — just a year and a half, all things considered — A Head Full of Dreams plays like a riposte to that haunted 2014 album. Where Chris Martin spent Ghost Stories in a mournful mood — his sorrow perhaps derived from his divorce to Gwyneth Paltrow or perhaps not; it’s best not to read too much into the tabloid headlines — the Coldplay leader sees nothing but sunshine and stars on A Head Full of Dreams. Martin gives away the game with his song titles. He’s quite literally having “Fun” on an “Amazing Day,” living for the weekend and viewing his impending middle age as nothing so much as the “Adventure of a Lifetime.” Coldplay match his optimism by tempering their signature soft focus, pushing themselves toward the light and undergirding the newfound positivity via glittering disco beats and a gossamer electronic sheen. Arriving after the deliberately dour Ghost Stories, this infusion of backbeat and glitz does indeed feel welcome and bold, suggesting the band is determined to seize every bit of life headed its way. This carpe diem spirit courses throughout A Head Full of Dreams, turning it into a 21st century equivalent of Steve Winwood’s Back in the High Life, a divorce record where every end seems like a fresh new beginning. Appropriately, Coldplay invite more than a few guests to help usher them into this brave new world, the showiest being Beyonc?, who overwhelms the band’s innate politeness on “Hymn for the Weekend,” but Tove Lo eases right into “Fun” and Noel Gallagher amiably allows himself to be swallowed by the gentle wash of guitars and synths. All these cameos suit the overarching theme of A Head Full of Dreams — how there’s a big, bright, beautiful world just waiting to be discovered if you just open your heart and live a little — and if this message is unabashedly corny, under the stewardship of Chris Martin, Coldplay feel genuine in their embrace of middle age. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
