haha, well the newsflash is that the band themselves confirmed that it's eno, so i trust what they say, i guess. but even with official confirmation...to me it sounds like chris EXACTLY, i compltely agree :D. i'm still somewhat in denial that it's not chris, in all honesty...

and i still find this hysterically funny. :laugh3:

I think they said that it's Eno talking at the beginning...but then he begins counting 1,2,3,4 and starts clapping and the "It's a bit flat" happens. The reason why it sounds exactly like Chris is because it IS him...i think they were explaining that Eno's talking at the very beginning of the song, but he can't be saying "It's a bit flat," at the same time he's counting.

ill settle this once and for all.....the voice at the begining of strawberry swing is Adam Clayton from u2....he popped into the bakery studio as the tape started rolling and said 'does anyone have a footpump for my ford fiesta? ive just checked my front tyre and its a bit flat'......coldplay cut the first part of the sentence out because as we alll know, chris doesnt allow his music to be used for advertising.....mystery solved!

I thought it was Chris saying "it's a bit fast" in references to the tempo of the handclaps.

Haha...I was wondering if I was going crazy and was the only one who heard someone mumble something softly on more than one of the songs off the new album! Now I have to go check who it was...I just assumed Chris...but now i am wondering.

Okay, I listened to it again and it ain't Chris...the voice is too low.
It does sound like it could be Guy and I think he is saying it is a bit fast...

Chris could be the one counting...

i also think it´s guy´s voice saying "it was a bit fast"
you can also hear a voice in the distance before that frase, following the claps, saying "1, 2, 3, 4" and starting again.
and check minute 0:25, you can hear the same voice saying "that time" or something like that
haha it´s funny, i feel like i´m right there with them :p

talking about misterious voices, you can also hear Chris counting just when Reign of Love starts.

It was Death saying either:

"Worship Satin"
or
"Buy this album cuz I played the funny sounding instrument that you hear in this song and also a little bit in Life in Technicolor towards the end even though some people think its a different instrument its actually the same one and I would know cuz I played it and thats why they named half their album after me and my homies cuz we helped out so much with everything. Oh also, Chris and Jonny are NOT gay together, its actually Jonny and Will and its disgusting. And thats coming from me, someone who sees death everyday. God!"

Definitely the second one, that one fits the timing of the message better.:cool:

I've listened to the album with earphones last night (and played the beginning of strawberry really loud) and it's definitely "It's a bit flat" not fast... and I think it sounds like Guy but well, if Chris says it's Eno... ;)
But I actually hear 'flat'

I am still hearing "flat" and can't at all make out "fast." :\
Same here. I think when they were imitating Eno during the interview it was just an example of something he would complain about, doesn't necessarily mean that's what he said at the beginning of Strawberry Swing.
