Nice that one of Coldplay only 2.5 years after their album Mylo Xyloto hear something new. When a band of this size that's nothing unusual. In most cases there be the distances between the albums 3-5 years. But Coldplay publish most every three years. After a very quiet and electronic song Midnight Magic is now the second harbinger of the new album appears in May. Somehow it is at Coldplay slow the method that is not always the most representative for the sound of the new album tracks will be published first. Recall here only example of Violet Hill Viva La Vida or Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall of Mylo Xyloto. This is hoped even if the two tracks and Midnight Magic. Midnight is a very unspectacular quiet somber song with a minimalist electronic arrangement, the hinplätschert quite as planned and inconsequential on. Magic, however, is a more typical for the band song. A piano ballad the most likely to remind Up In Flames from the last album. The sound is also applied more electronically. Half the band was almost certainly out of work during recording. What I can not understand so completely is that Coldplay now also look like so many other bands previously to modernize the sounds their salvation in electronics. This has been in other rock bands rarely works and these are then returned mostly to their ancestral sound. Chris Martin sings again partly in falsetto. Towards the end of the instrumentation is something lush and it is then, albeit sparingly, finally the guitar a. Overall, not a bad song, but if that is to a classic in the band's repertoire here, I may doubt. In concert, I can also imagine the song bad. Also a composer is there still much room for improvement.
