I LOVE VIVA LA VIDA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Sorry, I'm just so overwhelmed, it is amazing but one song I love is 'Lost', but when I heard the proper version, I thought the claps ruined it, I think the acoustic is much better, What do you think?


anyway, the album- 10/10

Yep, it sounds rather overproduced after a few listens, I have to say I'm not won over by it. The acoustic version is good and the solo fits the piano better than the guitar imho.

The acoustic vs album argument I feel also applies to Lovers in Japan. I really rate the acoustic version, as many people have said it's like a synthesis of See You Soon/Sleeping Sun/Til Kingdom Come, which are some of my favourites. The album version seems really busy and at times, messy. I would also say Chris's vocals on it aren't as refined as the acoustic version, but that's probably just me.

yeah...it's very messy! I've never heard the Lovers In Japan Acoustic version!

But I still like the 'Lost' normal version as the lyrics are amazing!

I prefer the album version of Lost, it's more eventful, I like the beat, but i agree with your analysis of LIJ.

more eventful??? I suppose, but it is NOT the Coldplay I know, they are not into TOO Many claps, they could have made it so amazing and emotional but they have tried to make it 'fun', which is NOT Coldplay! lol, that's what I think anyway

I love the beats in Lost!. Although Lost? was pretty cool acoustic. It must have been a really tough choice for coldplay regarding which one of the two to include.

The acoustic version is better. Definitely. I don't really know why. The vocals on the album version are better though.

if you like the album version better....do you know who Coldplay are????
And I'm not so sure about the lyrics in both songs, they seem to be clear in both, don't they???

The band AND Eno have both stated they wanted to make sure, because it was important to them, to have life in the music. Sure you can have serious songs, but there needs to be an organic energy.

I think they achieved that!

yeah, I suppose josh_simo, but I still feel the acoustic has a bit of a better feel to it, it might just be because I LOVE Acoustic music?? maybe, don't get my wrong, I like the album version but I just LOVE The Acoustic version! Brian Eno has brought a brilliant sound to the album and some songs (like Lost), I will have to get used to!

I thought the same thing the first time I heard the album version, but it's growing on me.

I think a lot of us prefer the acoustic version because it's the one we got to know the song by. Both are amazing for different reasons, but so far, I def. prefer the acoustic.

I don't want to start a new thread, so I'll just post this here: I'm just now reaching The Escapist and HO-LEE SHIT! THIS IS NOT A COLDPLAY ALBUM!! IT's by some epic band that I've just discovered!! IT CAN'T BE Coldplay!! It's just too...too...too...PERFECT!!!!!!

Oh Em Eff Gee! This is Coldplay??? THIS is my favorite band?? Can I pick 'em or what???? I'm blown away even more than I thought I would be...and all jokes aside, I don't 'squeeeee' for just anything! THIS IS AMAZING!!! LIKE NO OTHER ALBUM THIS DECADE!! (including Coldplay's albums!):D:D:D:D:D!

Hey Trace, I've been trying to download it in it's entirety for about two and a half hours now and am only up to downloading the fourth smallest I don't already have (Strawberry Swing) :dozey:. Consolance cookies?

It's 9 times as worse than Violet Hill Night :disappointed:
