The Album is 45 min Long - Says Chris on Hamish and Andy's Gap Year


Recommended Posts

I like their instrumentals, but think they really could have developed those into fuller songs with lyrics - I really hope Mylo Xyloto will be like LiT and actually have lyrics down the road - it's such a beautiful, shimmering opener - but reading the latest interviews - it's going to be wordless bc Mylo Xyloto can mean anything to anyone, and what better way than just sounds, and no words :( It sounds so epic, i wish it were 4min at least - And I don't understand worrying about length of album - The beatles didn't care - they just made music, these guys have a gift for making new music but still accessible and beautiful - Eno told them be fearless and don't worry about what others (ie critics) say (X & Y was and is still a great album, very underrated). I hope these instrumentals are not like Poppy Fields (which I really like, but wish it were longer).

Why does good stuff have to be revealed on a show ran by people who still think they are teenagers.


aren't adults allowed to have some fun too?? It's called a good sense of humour.


this is the interview :)

He says the album length at around 6:16



I was so happy that they chose to perform ETIAW instead of Paradise
