I've tried alternative track list. It doesn't end up well. Better stay with the original track list >.<

I still think of that song being released as their own song on their own album is the biggest mistake in their career... And the stupidest thing.

I tried to make my custom Ghost Stories edition but it didn't ended very well :( I place All My Friends after Magic and it worked so perfectly to me that I had no choice but to left Ink behind. The transition from All My Friends to Ink feels awkward to me, and for me Ghost Story fit very well after All My Friends or True Love. So I was done with the first half of the album (before Midnight), the second half is to perfect for me to change anything (Midnight, Another's Arms, Oceans and O fits perfectly together). So I was forced to left Ink behind, and of course this is my least favorite song from the album.:p

This is what I decided to do:

Alternative 1

Always in My Head
Magic
All My Friends
Ghost Story
True Love
O part 2
Midnight
Another's Arms
Oceans
Sky Full Of Stars
O

Alternative 2

Always in My Head
Magic
All My Friends
True Love
Ghost Story
O 2
Midnight
Another's Arms
Oceans
A Sky Full Of Stars
O

I respect Midnight but I just don't enjoy it. I've tried many, many times and I just can't get into it. It's just not the kind of music I like at all. But I completely give them props for trying new things and I definitely think it has an interesting and cool sound.

I would honestly rather just pretend ASFOS didn't exist at all. In my opinion it is tied with Princess of China as the worst thing they have ever released. I'm fine with them doing these types of songs and collaborations with other popular artists, I just don't think they belong on the albums proper. They should be one-off singles or bonus tracks. These four guys are incredibly talented people, they really don't need help from Rihanna or Aviici to make good music. When I listen to a Coldplay album I want to hear them.

8. O (Part 2) - This is the transition between Ocean and Ghost story

At this stage, this album is almost as good as Viva.

My version of Ghost Stories would be :

Always In My Head
Magic
Ink
True Love
Midnight
O
Another's Arms
All Your Friends
Ghost Story
Oceans
A Sky Full Of Stars
Fly On

I would change the title of O to Fly On. Makes the album more climatic and makes the album make more sense.

Agree?

7. Another's Arms
8. All Your Friends
9. Oceans
10. Ghost Story
11. Fly On

Although I'd prefer ASFoS to not exist entirely, I strongly dislike the song being on the album. It doesn't mesh and completely screws up the mood.

My personal alternative tracklist, with minor audio editing in places to create transitions between songs:

Always In My Head
Magic
Ink
All Your Friends (slight dovetailing into Midnight at the end)
Midnight
O Part 2 (titled 'O' in this version. Small ending transition into Another's Arms)
Another's Arms
Oceans
A Sky Full Of Stars
O (titled Fly On in this version. Edited so O fades in as the last chord of Fly On is still ringing)

So. I was honest with myself and decided to remplace Oceans by Atlas. I can't stand Oceans. It's nice, though. But long and flat. I added the transition to A Sky Full of Stars at the end of Atlas, and it works.

1 Always in my Head
2 Magic
3 Ink
4 True Love
5 Midnight
6 All My Friends
7 Ghost Story
8 Another's Arms
9 Echoes (O Part 2)
10 Atlas
11 A Sky Full of Stars
12 O
