coldplay, coldplay, coldplay…

I went to see coldplay! It was amazing. It’s still playing repeatedly in my head. Actually I was so excited already just because the place was Wembley. When I got to the station, I wished it was a football match… but no, that thought was wrong, coldplay was wonderful. I have seen coldplay twice in Japan… but this time was the best! Of course they are in their own country, their home city, and maybe because it was the last day of the tour, they looked really full of life. The live consists of both tracks from “Viva la Vida” and older tracks by turns, they played “In my place” and “Yellow” even at the beginning, it was so exciting to sing these songs with lots of people. “Fix you” almost made me cry! Also their graphics and lighting were amazing, I enjoyed all from the beginning to the end. Their stage always looks cool, but it was awesome this time. They also played tracks like “God Put A Smile Upon Your Face” and “Talk” in “electrical” version. (It sounded a bit like the Gorillaz…) In the middle part, they moved from the main stage to a smaller stage in the middle of audience, and played in acoustic style, it was full of amazing music. Led by Chris Martin, we tried “mobile wave” as well. (each person holds mobile phone and do wave! So beautiful!)During that, coldplay played “Billie Jean”! It was so unexpected but actually they were quite good. I was so fascinated by Chris Martin. He changed that strange hair style, so looked cool. His voice was so beautiful too… It was my dream to see them in the UK. And they showed me a wonderful night. I love you, Coldplay!

Writing a report and Oasis

I can’t concentrate on reports…and I’m writing my blog, hehe. Now I’m listening to Oasis’s “Dig Out Your Soul”. It’s their most recent album released in last October. I love this album. Originally I like Oasis and Wonderwall always makes me cry. I remember I used to carry a lot of MD(!) of Oasis whenever I go. But their music sounded less interesting from “Heathen Chemistry” and when I listened to “Don’t believe the truth” I felt a bit sad because it was not exciting like before. So this time, I didn’t expect at all to be honest. I tried it anyway, and… This is amazing! Oasis! So cool! Their music is really straight as always, some tracks sound like bit pop, some sound very Noel-ish, and important thing is….it sounds new. I can’t tell this well, but something is new. Now my love for oasis came back, I’m listening to other albums as well… Well, I have to go back to reports…. Link to the LastFM page

“Yours Truly, Angry Mob” by Kaiser Chiefs

It’s been a while since I went to HMV last time. I bought some CDs and am feeling so happy, I’ll write about them one by one. The first one is, well, I know it’s a bit too late, but Kaiser Chiefs’s “Yours Truly, Angry Mob”. Actually I listened to it when it was released. But I didn’t like “Ruby, ruby, ruby, ruby—” so I didn’t buy it. But why, it sounds really cool now. I was so stupid not buying it. Some tracks are like “I predict a riot”, cool beat and dance tune, still being rock, and some tracks are more straight, moderate rock music. I really like the sound of electric instruments they sometime use. I just wonder…the sounds and the chorus sounds like the Beatles a bit??? The tracks I like are: “Heat Dies Down” “Everything Is Average Nowadays” “Learnt My Lesson Well” …and “Ruby” lol.

Coldplay’s new album

So I feel like I have seen a similar news before, but Virgin Radio says this: http://www.virginradio.co.uk/music/news/story/4558/Coldplay_deny_album_will_be_called__quot_Prospekt_quot__.html?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=xml&utm_campaign=rss “a month away from completing”? “deny album will be called “Prospekt””? …I agree with everyone on that site. Release it lol!!! We are waiting for your music~~~!!!
