Just sending a random greeting out to Oldplayers !

I just got reminded in another thread how intolerant some ppl are towards negative opinions on newer songs, and that this Oldplaying thread here is and will always be a safe space :heart:

Listen to Ode To Deodorant... That always cheers me up! XD...
By the way, am I the only one who got excited by listening to that song in high quality on the AHFOD film? I just hope we get the real studio version some day... I wonder who had the CD with the master recording of that song to rip it and add it to the film, maybe Phil?...

Maybe Miller?

He has been archiving a lot of stuff.

One of the reasons I don't go to the Los Unidades thread anymore. If I think a song is crap, can't I say it? :confused:
On another topic, I'm listening to Live In Buenos Aires for the first time.
Some personal notes (so far):

(-) It's cringe af when Chris speaks in spanish. He does that way too many times.
(-) GPASUYF gets worse and worse at each tour. That Life is Beautiful part is awful. And the obscurity and slow start of the song is completely gone.
(-) Yellow seems so out of place between AHFOD and ETIAW (two powerful songs). It should be Birds after Yellow.
(+) AIMH, Magic and Everglow fit very well together. I liked that part.
(+) Musically talking, I don't like the Paradise remix outro. But it is a good addition for a stadium show. It gives so much energy.
(+) AHFOD is an incredible song performed live.

So far it's pretty good. Listening to Clocks now. Tomorrow I'll comment the rest.

I just really got bored if I'm honest. I felt so removed from the whole thing I skipped most of it. I felt an unhealthy dose of indifference towards the band afterwards so I put in Live 2003 and all is well now! GPASUYF alone revitalized my soul!

Glad someone said that, I thought I was the only one who felt bugged by that ! The atmosphere of this song is totally ruined in the MX ("wannabe hard rock") and AHFOD ("give me a whoop whoop") tour versions imho.

I sometimes have to do that kind of thing as well to remind me of why this is my favourite band. But then when I listen to an early album, it doesn't take me long to get reminded of why I fell in love with their music.

I also frequently look at it this way: Whatever negative direction they have taken or might take in their music, they will always be the people who created I Ran Away. The people who created the X&Y album. The people who created AROBTTH. And nothing in the world can ever change anything about that. :heart:

I don't know where else to say this but I finally found the original FLAC distribution of Draft 8 (I think it was 8) of Square Peg in a Round Hole that was released on a hi-fi site as a promo. I lost the FLAC copy and had some shitty mp3s that were converted way back when but god it feels good to have my personal favorite version of the album back.

Let's revive this thread !

I recently came across this on Youtube:

It's a rare acoustic session of the X&Y Era. Not the best quality, but it does have gems like A Message (although not as good as the other acoustic version of A Message that exists.) Enjoy !
