So is sort of a Princess of China deal here? The acoustic version is far superior than the one we got on MX.
I'd like to hear it!I made a Tour version of Army Of One. I tried my best to replicate the new synth vocal sounds at the beginning by using the DIY acapella by ColdplayKB. I also used the fan audio from the concert. Any1 interested?

Agreed.It's so full of happiness. It's sort of a love song that doesn't sound like a love song. Amazing.
Yeah! Jonny's guitar on the live version is amazing. I can't tell if those lines are even on the album version at all. Especially during the choruses...there are just so many notes.Thoughts:
I really think this song's final mix is either under produced or overproduced. Why?
So these covers are stripped versions with pianos--and they are AMAZING! The melody is great, the piano makes it far more meaningful and uplifting rather than the thumping drums and uninteresting organ. These covers feel more Coldplay than the actual song.
The live version performed at Buenos Aires is also really awesome because Jonny is allowed to play around with his guitar--and they weren't afraid to add extra synth sounds into the mix. The studio version with this free style guitar jam would be infinitely better.
My last word is this: I really hope we eventually get a Army of One Single that includes alternative mixes or perhaps an acoustic version. I think of all the AHFOD tracks, it would have the best acoustic version--would feel very X&Y.
I'll have to check this out!Yeah! Jonny's guitar on the live version is amazing. I can't tell if those lines are even on the album version at all. Especially during the choruses...there are just so many notes.
There are also extra vocal samples being used in the live version. Guy (who I think is manually triggering the bass and vocal samples live) plays a bunch of random Chris-voice noises during the intro and the quiet bit in the middle and it just adds a LOT of character.
I heard the Chris-voice noises haha, and Jonny's guitar from 2:36 to 3:03 gives life to that part of the song!
