this is a great song, i love the story it tells. and it just builds up into this great crescendo with them just going "ooohhh ooohhh". its pure music brilliance - in a song with lots of stuff going on, one of the best parts is with the least in it
so i'm finally listening to the album legally for the first time... and i LOVE how viva la vida transitions perfectly into violet hill! it didnt work like this on the leak. but on the itunes version the end of viva la vida slowly transitions into that odd synt sound at the beginning of violet hill. very cool. also the quality was so amazing that i picked up so much more in the strings part. wowww.
