Review: Coldplay At Halftime

The halftime show at Super Bowl 50 was destined to be momentous regardless of the angle the “Powers That Be” decided to go with. The performances, as of late, have been very pop-oriented; Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, Madonna, and the Black Eyed Peas playing the last 5 years. Coldplay seemed like the perfect, necessary segue from pop back…

Review: Katy Perry At Halftime

It’s pretty inarguable that Katy Perry is one of the biggest forces in pop music over the last decade. Despite failing to live up to her culturally significant contemporaries like Beyoncé or Lady Gaga, she has racked up more number one hits than both of them combined (plus a few other big hits to boot.)…

Track Reviews: Madonna’s “Rebel Heart” (…So Far)

The Queen of Pop had a rough week. Over the last year, Madonna has been highly prolific on social media, letting us in on the process to diligently complete her upcoming 13th studio album. With pictures showing off collaborators (Diplo, Avicii) and hashtags showing off song titles, it was clear she wasn’t shy about whetting our appetites.…

Track Review: Michael Jackson “Love Never Felt So Good”

It’s not that the tracks themselves are bad; they’re just not to MJ’s standards. When you…

Album Review: Kylie Minogue “Kiss Me Once”

There’s a new dawn on the horizon for Kylie Minogue. On the verge of unleashing her 12th studio effort, enticingly entitled Kiss Me Once, the Aussie pop princess is noticeably more determined than ever. Oddly enough, it doesn’t seem as though Kylie is particularly putting her energy into making a return to the top of the…

Track Review: Coldplay “Magic”

Last week, Coldplay surprised us by randomly dropping a video for a strange new track called “Midnight” (Review HERE) without any real explanation as to what was going on. It was a brilliant move to mount excitement, but with a track as “out there” (for them) as it was, and a video as borderline terrifying…

Track Review: Coldplay “Midnight”

So before we dive into this new track, let’s put Coldplay into perspective. There are very few bands who have reached this level of success that have maintained a consistent “cool factor,” and this one is hardly an exception. After the success of their sophomore album, A Rush Of Blood To The Head (still their greatest work…
