MosesTheMarshmallow Posted July 7, 2011 Share Posted July 7, 2011 What do you guys think? There are a lot of arguments for and against them, but I have a lot of conflicted feelings that I hope this thread can help towards resolving. For: -Chris gets to dance more -Less mistakes (well, not necessarily: see In My Place at Main Square) -Bigger, better sound. -No need for extra musicians on songs like VLV, LIT. -Most bands use them (or extra musicians)...power "trios" come to mind like Muse and Green Day. Against: -More honest, which is part of the appeal of Parachutes, which had NO backing tracks. -Unnecessary in some cases, especially on AROBTTH songs. The Scientist doesn't REALLY need those strings. -The band could certainly play the parts live; for example, instead of Chris dancing around at the end of Fix You, he could just sit down and play organ. Note: this thread is not about whether they use backing tracks, because it's abundantly evident that they have on nearly everything since AROBTTH. Anyways, discuss!
