'Ghost Stories' is the sixth studio album by British rock band Coldplay. The album, co-produced by Coldplay with Paul Epworth as well as 'Mylo Xyloto' producers Daniel Green and Rik Simpson, is a mystical, magical journey into the world of love, loss and obsession. With all the upbeat, happy spring songs splattering onto new albums and radio stations across the world, 'Ghost Stories' slows it down and narrates a tragic story of destruction and devastation – and ultimately euphoria.

'Ghost Stories' starts out with a yoga-esque type of sound, with women harmonizing soothing tunes as the beautiful bass kicks in with the familiar Coldplay sound we all have grown to love. 'I think of you, I haven't slept, you're always in my head,' moans Chris Martin.

The troubled relationship between Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow started to take its toll during the recording of 'Ghost Stories.' It's quite clear the heartbreak and pain the twosome experienced as each track tells the story of their twisted and troubled romance.

Martin's hypnotic voice blended with brilliant production gives the album a chilling feel and opens up your eyes to the person you're in love with at this moment. Whether it be someone you're in a current relationship with or the one you can't get out of your head, the entire album is an eye-opener into your life of love, pain, joy and the next step into the unknown, which is quite scary. Forbidden love is a bitch, but sometimes the most amazing love stories come when you least expect it. Coldplay always knows how to capture the overall wavelength of serious music lovers around the planet.

'Ghost Stories' may not be the most memorable work from Coldplay, but it definitely redefines songs of misery, loneliness and love and is probably something Chris Martin wants to eventually forget anyway. The band continuously creates relaxing music molding them into one of the most successful rock bands of our generation. Sit back, relax and listen to one of the most tragic and tender love/ghost stories ever told by a rock band.
