You just can't compare DLIBYH to Chinese Sleep Chant.

 

And A Hopeful Transmission is what 30 seconds long?

 

Anyway..

 

Life in Technicolour

Lovers in Japan (but HLH live)

Paradise

Violet Hill

Viva la Vida

Strawberry Swing

Lost!

42

Us Against The World

UFO

DLIBYH

Escapist

Death and all His Friends

 

So that's 9-4 to Viva and I don't even particularly like VLV much as a whole album

Not comparable.

 

Mylo Xyloto is an album that is basically supposed to be like a book.

 

Each song is a chapter....they all come together to tell a story that is the book.

 

Viva la Vida is like a collection of short stories. The songs where related but only in theme, not in story. Good album, but MX is meant to be heard all the way through. I feel that to take one song and compare it to Viva would be like taking one chapter of Lord of the Rings and comparing it to a story in a collection of short stories.

 

My opinion.

Round 1: Life In Technicolor

Round 2: Hurts Like Heaven

Round 3: Paradise

Round 4: Violet Hill

Round 5: Charlie Brown (JUST.)

Round 6: Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall

Round 7: Princess Of China

Round 8: Up In Flames

Round 9: Us Against The World

Round 10: Reign Of Love (though I'm not massively keen on either)

Round 11: DLIBYH

Round 12: A Hopeful Transmission

Round 13: Death And All His Friends

 

So 9-4 to MX. Although I'd only place it overall at a fraction above VLV, but some of those choices are quite hard to pick from. Asking me to pick between Viva and Charlie Brown is like asking me to pick my favourite child! (If I had any... :D )

Some of the match-ups were bad, but I am leaning very favorably towards MX because it's new and fresh for me. VLV is a great album, but right know I would want to listen to MX more

42

Yes

Well... I even feel quite bad for MX... lol

 

Mmmh... but seriously, it's quite stupid to put into this "vs." Chinese Sleep Chant, A Hopeful Transmission, Reign Of Love apart from Lovers in Japan... It just doesn't make sense and it's not fair to any of the albums :p
