Well now that it's out, let's discuss it!

I think it's awesome, the double tracked vocals and spacey and distorted guitars are awesome! I'd give it a 9/10, on only one listen! What does everyone else think?

Not feeling it right away, think it'll take a few listens :)

It sounds a lot different to the live version. I think I prefer the live version, although it'll grow on me.

Absolutely love the live versions but this seems way too overproduced. Hopefully it'll grow and I'll get used to it but not really liking the opening to this album too much so far :(

REALLY but REALLY overproduced. With a simpler production it would have been 10/10, seriously, but I think there are so much noises and zero space to breath in it... Shame. :(

(Is it me or the drums sound way too much?)

Beautiful!
Perfect!

Of course we can't compare live and studio versions. Such rock songs works always better with a crowd and on a big stage...nothing new. Still a masterpiece.

I love the effects, I never thought I'd say that some months ago. But I love this song, they couldn't ruin it if they tried.

I totally agree, I was really looking forward to HLH too :(

I absolutely love HLH album version. After the epic MX opening (which is even better than live) it really kicks the album in the right direction!

blown away. that's all i've listened to so far off the album.

i didn't expect it to be mixed so weird and awesome.

eno really did a good job. he's making coldplay sound edgier yet without sacrificing feeling.

It does sound too clean. I prefer the raw sound the live versions had. The robot Chris voice will probably take some getting used to, but this song is still one of the best off the album, in my opinion!

ETA: MX sounds soooo good.
