Hey, I'm relatively new on the forum and have just been mostly lurking.

 

Just heard Atlas in full for the first time, and I agree with you guys, it's absolutely awesome and does not need time to grow on you. Really beautiful build-up. Not disappointed! It's ok with me if this is a taste of LP6.

Official lyrics (from Coldplay.com):

 

Some saw the sun

Some saw the smoke

Some heard the gun

Some bent the bow

Sometimes the wire

Must tense for the note

We're caught in the fire, say oh

We're about to explode

 

Carry your world

I'll carry your world

Carry your world

I'll carry your world

 

Some far away

Some search for gold

Some dragon to slay

Heaven we hope

Is just up the road

Show me the way, lord,

Because I

I'm about to explode

 

Carry your world

I'll carry your world

Carry your world

I'll carry your world

Carry your world

And all your hurt

 

Carry your world

Carry your world

Just heard the full thing in Absolute Radio! After only one listen I can say I love this song. It's got a little bit of each era in it. I hope LP6 follows the same kind of sound as this. That would be a great!

 

One question though. Do we know who produced it (like, was Brain Eno involved)? Because that could be the same person whose producing LP6, if they have indeed started already.

It was produced by Coldplay with Daniel Green and Rik Simpson.

My first thoughts after listening to Atlas twice:

 

1. Have to hear it together with the movie

2. Its not that catchy as i hoped it would be

3. The "carry your world"-Part is a bit to repetetive to me

4. Jonnys guitar part isnt that "epic" as many describe it

5. In the end,its a very relaxing song and that is a fact which helps me to forget about

the negative aspects...

Just noticed that a snippet of the bass riff sounds a lot like this bit in Paradise:
(bah-dah-bam!) Awesome!

 

I noticed that too! haha good username btw.

 

Also what really impresses me about Atlas is the how piano-driven it is. I tried working through it briefly on piano this morning and it's more complex than usual- it reminds me of Postcards from Far Away.

It has a great balance between being very unique and also contain familiar bits and pieces.

 

It's a bit like Clocks, too. A complex melody but you don't notice when listening to it, it's just beautiful. Just found a pretty good piano version of Clocks which illustrates it: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQgQ78fKmj0]Coldplay - Clocks - YouTube[/ame]
