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!
agreed!

ok i let myself listen to lost! because between the acoustic version and that interview, i pretty much knew the song back to front anyway...

upon first listen i didn't think it had anything on the acoustic... the vocals didn't sound as passionate at times (almost slightly rushed), very little piano - mainly organ, it sounds very different to old coldplay, and the beat iskinda rnb-ish. but after listening a couple more times, i've decided to put aside any preconceptions of what new coldplay should sound like, and the more i listen to the album version, the more its growing on me. i love the backing vocals at the end.. wish they continued over the organ as it fades out... i can just imagine it live.. that organ conclusion was almost made for the crowd to cheer over after the final beat drops... in fact it would've been awsome if the chorus was repeated over the organ at the end so that we could sing it at concerts, much like the end of Fix You...

having said all that, i think it was wise to introduce the song to us via the acoustic so that we could find some familiar territory in it, rather than instantly dislike it for not being 'coldplay' enough - whatever that even means in this period of experimentation!

i'm really glad to read that the album has surpassed most of your expectations.. can't wait to feel the same joy in just over a week. until then i'll just flog lost! for all it's got...

Lost! is such a wonderful track! You can really hear the entire band as opposed to Lost?, where its just Chris and the piano.

I prefer the acoustic version. To be honest Lost! is, at this moment, my least favorite track of the album. I don't like that church feeling, I don't like the african rhythm and I don't like the clapping... well to be honest it really annoys me the beginning of the song, but I like the end, the guitar solo is awesome.

I think something similar happened with Politik. Since first listen I loved the end of the song, but I couldn't stand the beginning, I HATED IT!! But with time I started to tolerate it and then I started to like it, so eventually I enjoyed the full song... and now it's one of my favorite songs ever.... maybe the same thing is gonna happen with this one. :)

both are very good in their own right. However i see reasons as to why the acoustic wasn't included on the new album- it's not rocky enough. Lost! fits much better in the progression of the album while Lost? fits the Coldplay mold from previous albums. I think they released the acoustic separately to show people they still recognize their roots of melodic songs and such- mostly.

Yeah, the whole band version does fit the album better, absolutely!

I like the vocals on the regular version better, but the music better on the Acoustic version.

I love the acoustic lost but on first play of the album lost I was blown away - the hand claps are brilliant and the guitar solo is very rocky. The chorus sounds way better on the album version, the the verses suit the acoustic style, so swings and roundabouts I guess.

I just think it's great that Coldplay think it is important to give us two versions of the one song. :)

My vote is with the acoustic(sorry, PIANO ), version.Only because it is the raw, emotion-charged voice of simply Chris that draws me....

but maybe they didn`t feel the show would need a breathtaking moment; rather, opted for the good ole clap -yer-hands and sing along version...:p

I dunno, I have to say that I like the ending a lot on the original.

Well, first I got lost, acoustic version and it's way much better than original. It's soft, beautiful and "with soul". For now, my favorite song on the album. :kiss:
