Dreams boasts a handful of high-profile guests, including Noel Gallagher, BeyoncéTove Lo, frontman Chris Martin’s ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, and — wait for it — President Barack Obama, whose rendition of “Amazing Grace” is featured on the LP.

In her review of the album, Janine Schaults writes:

“If A Head Full of Dreams is Coldplay’s final album, as frontman Chris Martin once recklessly warned, then the 11-track whirlwind finds the mega-selling British quartet racing toward the setting sun in a Mad Max: Fury Road gas-guzzling Franken-heap. Martin puts on the confetti-spewing Technicolor dreamcoat he discarded for 2014’s downer Ghost Stories and returns on the band’s 7th studio release with a rejuvenated spirit — just in time to get creamed commercially by Adele.”
