Music Review: Coldplay, “Kaleidoscope EP”

Share

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Coldplay has released a companion EP to their 2015 album, “A Head Full of Dreams.” On the five-track EP dubbed, “Kaleidoscope,” Chris Martin and crew deliver new songs, as well as a live version of their popular Chainsmokers EDM collaboration, “Something Just Like This,” recorded during the Tokyo leg of their massive world tour. Opener “All I Can Think About Is You” is an excellent track for any true Coldplay fan to enjoy, starting off somber and mellow, then, after a piano riff-turn, bursts open with guitar and orchestral accompaniment, as many classic Coldplay hits do. “Miracles (Someone Special) ft. Big Sean” is also another great jam for Coldplay fans with a sweet message. In “ALIENS,” Martin tackles the European migrant crisis; while closer “Hypnotised – EP Mix” reminds us, once again, why a recent study found that Coldplay is the “most sleep-inducing band.”
