Best Album of 2015 To: Put On When You’re Ready To Accept It’s Good
First Bite: “A Head Full of Dreams”
Coldplay entered my life at the same point that I was starting to explore music for myself. My formative years as a self-aware teenager were complimented well by a few friends who were also beginning the same journey. In 2005, I dipped my toe further into the Coldplay pool with my first Coldplay concert. It was essentially a religious experience. In that moment, my unconditional love was earned. Ever since, that feeling of community and euphoria is woven into the common thread found throughout Coldplay’s discography. Whether Chris and the gang are dabbling in disco or channeling The Cure there’s something undeniably Coldplay about it. I know I’m not alone in this feeling, and when one Coldplayer finds another or two, and they throw the most recent album on, I bet some jubilee follows.
