I told this to another friend and his interpretation was this: “Coldplay seems to be afraid to go to the dark side. And since bed wetters are children and people who are afraid of the dark, I guess that’s what’s the reviewer meant. In fact, I also think Coldplay’s music is bed wetting music.”
Another friend then commented that like Coldplay, Hindi music is also bed wetting music.
“Hindi music is soft and sentimental. Not at all like Cradle of Filth and Slipknot,” he said.
I don’t know why but I keep wondering whether these people are too afraid of their soft side! They want to be or at least appear to be tough!
I think what’s tougher and braver is actually accepting and coming to terms with your soft side.
I love Coldplay because their music is melancholic. And like Slipknot and Cradle of Filth, I believe Coldplay is equally talented too though they choose not to indulge in metal because I guess it is only through melancholic music that the feeling of songs like “Speed of Sound” and “Hardest Part” can be conveyed.
