Same. The strange vocal tone in addition to the cringey lyrics ("I worship in your church, babe, all day ) really threw me off. It also doesn't really tie in lyrically with the rest of the album imho.Also, I don’t like how Chris sounds here.
I was listening to A Head Full Of Dreams much more than MYLOXYLOTO over the years.Also, I know a lot of people here really dislike AHFOD but while I know it's not their best work, I'm always so shocked by the amount of hate it gets.
I have such positive memories of that era
I knew I recognized that! Thanks for posting
Not every song needs every member of the band. That sort of thinking is what leads to the bombastic ness of MX.There are some songs that had me thinking "in which way are the other members of the band participating here?" and it gets a bit annoying (BrokEn and Guns for example).
