Head Full of Dreams by Coldplay

Amy - AV January 29, 2016

Coldplay's new studio album, and presumably their last, is called, "A Head Full of Dreams," and feels like a sweet emotional journey with the goal of making the listener happy.  The songs are full of hope, healing thoughts, and messages of acceptance.  The album is also full of collaborations, including the likes of Beyoncé, Gwyneth Paltrow and President Obama.  No, I’m not kidding!  It seems to flow between a 70's disco feel and Coldplay's millennial sound.  My favorite tracks are the title tune, "A Head Full of Dreams," and "Up and Up," which seem to convey Chris Martin's feelings of excitement and optimism after 15 years as a frontman.  (The band has announced a tour to promote the album, but has implied they will go their separate ways after that.)   Longtime Coldplay fans will probably find this album bittersweet as it seems to be a "goodbye" as well as a prayer for the planet.  If you are looking for something upbeat with meaningful lyrics and the classic "piano rock" style, you will definitely enjoy this album.

Overall Rating:  A
