just heard the live version in Glasto and without a doubt much better than the studio one.

Don't get me wrong, I like the studio \/ersion, but I for sure think the li\/e \/ersion is way more dynamic. It's packed with more excitement and I think it's because his \/ocals don't sound "tampered with." It's just pure Chris.

Hehe, nice first post!
Welcome to Coldplaying! :nice:

To me there's nothing wrong with X&Y! :)
It was AROBTTH that got me into CP but X&Y is probably the album I listened to the most before I discovered the awesome live concert recordings that are gathered here on the site. :awesome:

Oh and thanks for KOL! :lol:
I quite like their albums (especially the older ones).
Have a look at the World of Music forum if you find the time, we're discussing LOTS of other bands in there. :)

I voted for the Studio version, just because the studio beginning of Major Minus is of better quality than the live beginning. Other than that, they're both awesome.

Live by a mile and I really don't even like the live version that much. Unless i'm listening to the album start to finish i'll skip MM more often than not.

I really like the LITTLE voice effects in Chris' voice and I really like both versions. They sound very different, maybe the whole character of the song is shown a bit better in the live versions, because they are not as perfect as in the studio version. So, the feeling of opressing, escape and fear can be better heard.
But the verse is better in the studio version, love it so much!

Live is much better. I really hope they mix it again for the album.

I can appreciate both for what they are. Live is rarely as done up as the studio version (with the exception of Lost! for sure), so I like listening to both. I have no problems at all with the studio version. His muffled voice gets that very out of this world and creepy point out there very well.
