...the Mylo Xyloto chords are present in UFO also.

From 1:20 ahead there are again the iterant notes.

I'm glad someone else caught this. I love how they reprise MX a few times over the course of the album. Really helps "continue" the story.

The entirety of DLIBYH is also built around the MX progression, pretty much just an extension of AHT

Yeah it's almost like a soundtrack or film score, like a leitmotif. It's great.

I'm glad I wasn't the first one or the only one to spot this. :D I noticed it today when I was listening in class, it definitely gives the album (and UFO as a song) more merit.

i am really loving this album. Just the concept of making it basically a story is amazing to me. Something that we won't see for a very long time either

Also, Up With The Birds? It has some same melodic ideas, at least.
Yeah I noticed that the very ending sound of Up With The Birds is the same note as MMIX and the intro sound of ETIAW. Helps tie the happy feelings of MMIX and ETIAW with the happy ending of UWTB I think :)

I need to listen to UFO and DLIBYH more closely but I can hear the chords to MX in AHT!

I noticed it right off. Ties all the songs together, and yes, it's kind of like a soundtrack. I think that is what Chris will be doing sooner or later.

Wow....this is so amazing...I noticed it before but I thought I was wrong!!!
Mylo Xyloto is great when you think of the story...all of the songs connect.
