It’s rare for album art to make an appearance in public that makes you think, there’s got to be something special about the music. I can’t remember this has happened since the release of the Beatles iconic “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band”, followed by its counter piece “At Her Majesties Request” by the Stones.
I set up the speakers at the window to blast “Citadel” for my neighbourhood to hear. I heard Sgt. Pepper with the volume turned up at a private party at the Spatzenhof on the west shore of lake Starnberg where we lived at the time. The hosts, iconic local heroes, by which the younger brother looked like Mick Jagger and the older daughter was a sexy Uschi Obermaier lookalike. The older brother had a black beard and curly hair, and the younger sister raped me in public at the party.
That’s not what it’s like with #AHFOD, since Coldplay is no adored musician of mine. The contrary holds true. Even so the music edition of the NYT mag had listed Coldplay with „Hymn For The Weekend” as a contribution to NA in music.

The New Aesthetic in Music comes close to what is now known as supernormal. Something we are familiar with and trust but can’t determine what’s responsible for it. The Hamilton Cast’s “Say no to this” is a good example. Should you not know them, take Justin Bieber’s “Sorry”.
A soft symphonic carpet lies beneath the new aesthetic. A parquet on which the interpreter gives her best to influence the audience and built a following to benefit her.
