Coldplay - Magic

Coldplay seemingly heeded the advice of Tunes 4 Loons!! #not. While I'm sure Chris Martin isn't responsible for any of our 4,500 hits (half of which are from me), they did fulfill our suggestion and release some catchier music. I don't even think I'm jumping the gun when I say "Magic" is instant classic material. It's innovative while remaining true to what Coldplay does best. That is, singing from the heart, remaining relatively minimal, and out of that, somehow producing a catchy hook. The xx-esque production fits them great, and is a welcome change of pace from the borderline frantic Mylo Xyloto days. It's a real testament to this band (or my undying love for them....) that they can repeat the lyrics "Call it magic" 45x to a slow-burning beat and I will RUN to it on repeat. CANNOT WAIT for Ghost Stories boys!!
