I am a Coldplay fan, and while I’ve been a fan of their newer work still, “Atlas” sounds like CLASSIC Coldplay from early on. Slow, building, breathy, pianos, largesse on the lush vocals and backgrounds — you know, their earlier sound.
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” isn’t out for a couple of more months, but if this song is indicative of the rest of the quality of the soundtrack, sign me up. It’s nice to get a reprieve from all the “4 on the floor” and dubstep drops that have permeated the mainstream, am I right?
I saw the last movie, not really a fan, but I might cop the soundtrack if it avoids any major missteps. We shall see. Enjoy!
