Coldplay's consistent success has made them one of the most famous music bands in recent years. Ghost Stories is another great example of their brilliant music, and I loved the album. The interesting thing about the album is that in spite of the band's commercial success and rise to popularity, the music in this album sticks to Coldplay’s original roots as the focus is on acoustic sound rather than mainstream pop. I think Coldplay made the right decision in choosing the acoustic sound since most fans don’t want bands to change their style and start sounding similar to others. Ghost Stories has plenty of good songs to choose from, and vocals and melody combine beautifully to create an amazing experience. Even though the band has been making music for so long, they manage to retain their charm with this wonderful album, which is why I would give it 4.5 stars.

This band showed so much promise early on in its career,what with Parachutes (2000) then the fabulous A Rush Of Blood To The Head (2002).Then came the holding pattern X&Y (2005) and the sometimes brilliant Viva LaVida (2008),but it's been all downhill since.
This release from2014 is unmemorable,and their latest A Head Full Of Dreams (2015) is the same, these guys have become dinosaurs in this genre.
Like the instrumentals in Magic, Ink, A sky Full of Stars and O. None earthshaking but likely grow on you more after repeated listening.
Great break-up music.
True Love, Ink, Magic, A Sky full of Stars are the best songs on this album. I love it.
Excellent CD. I've always been a fan of Coldplay until their most recent work and I must say that heartbreak has really worked for Chris Martin in putting together a moody, stirring and moving album.
it sounded like the band sat down before writting and decided they should try as hard as possible to sound like radiohead. if you like coldplays other albums this one is nothing like the rest.
A bold foray into art-techno that yields a couple good tracks, but is brought down by Chris Martin's wooden lyrics and heavy production that can feel overboard when the songs aren't good enough to support it. I guess Coldplay's admirable ambition only works two out of every three times.
Eveyone better hurry and rip the cd and then return it because their are alot of people waiting for this disk.
