Concert preview: Coldplay

Joel Oliphint

IfGhost Stories was Coldplay frontman Chris Martin's breakup record (and it was), thenA Head Full of Dreams is the sound of Martin moving on joyously, but in that over-the-top way where, if he were your close friend, you'd be a bit worried about how often he claims to be high on life and really just doingamazing. The Technicolor album cover, the Willie Wonka-esque promo shots, the puppy-love lyrics… It all makes me nostalgic for Coldplay's old days, when Martin sang of yellow things and scientists.(Think twice)
