I respect Midnight but I just don't enjoy it. I've tried many, many times and I just can't get into it. It's just not the kind of music I like at all. But I completely give them props for trying new things and I definitely think it has an interesting and cool sound.

 

I would honestly rather just pretend ASFOS didn't exist at all. In my opinion it is tied with Princess of China as the worst thing they have ever released. I'm fine with them doing these types of songs and collaborations with other popular artists, I just don't think they belong on the albums proper. They should be one-off singles or bonus tracks. These four guys are incredibly talented people, they really don't need help from Rihanna or Aviici to make good music. When I listen to a Coldplay album I want to hear them.

At this stage, this album is almost as good as Viva.

What do you mean by "stage"?

My version of Ghost Stories would be :

 

Always In My Head

Magic

Ink

True Love

Midnight

O

Another's Arms

All Your Friends

Ghost Story

Oceans

A Sky Full Of Stars

Fly On

 

I would change the title of O to Fly On. Makes the album more climatic and makes the album make more sense.

 

Agree?

Although I'd prefer ASFoS to not exist entirely, I strongly dislike the song being on the album. It doesn't mesh and completely screws up the mood.

My personal alternative tracklist, with minor audio editing in places to create transitions between songs:

 

Always In My Head

Magic

Ink

All Your Friends (slight dovetailing into Midnight at the end)

Midnight

O Part 2 (titled 'O' in this version. Small ending transition into Another's Arms)

Another's Arms

Oceans

A Sky Full Of Stars

O (titled Fly On in this version. Edited so O fades in as the last chord of Fly On is still ringing)

So. I was honest with myself and decided to remplace Oceans by Atlas. I can't stand Oceans. It's nice, though. But long and flat. I added the transition to A Sky Full of Stars at the end of Atlas, and it works.

2 Magic

3 Ink

4 True Love

5 Midnight

6 All My Friends

7 Ghost Story

8 Another's Arms

4. All Your Friends

5. O Part 2 (but titled "Never Let Go" and have a transition into Midnight)

6. Midnight

7. Atlas

8. True Love

9. Another's Arms

10. Oceans

11. A Sky Full Of Stars

12. Fly On (with O as a hidden track at the the end)

 

Ghost Story is then released as a Single or B-Side as just with every Coldplay era, there is that one amazing song that doesn't make the album (and I personally think it doesn't fit with the rest of the songs even though I love it)

I just watched the Making of Ghost Stories Interview and they showed a rough draft track listing of Ghost Stories and it contain two unreleased tracks as well. Here is my alternate track listing based off that track listing.

1. O (Reprise)

2. The Race (Unreleased)

3. Another’s Arms

4. Atlas

5. True Love

6. Ghost Story

7. Oceans

8. Tomorrow (World Without You) (Unreleased)

9. Fly On

 

This rough draft version included Atlas, Ghost Story and O (Reprise).

Always In My Head, Magic, Ink, Midnight, A Sky Full Of Stars were not included on that track listing at the time.

maybe we're going a bit off topic with mixing albums, anyway I made a playlist by mixing the darkest tracks of Viva La Vida (Cemeteries of London, Violet Hill, Chinese Sleep Chant...) with some Ghost Stories tracks and Atlas and it become something incredible to listen ;)

Sorry if I mixed up Parachutes with Ghost Stories. I just did it because I remember mixing up OK Computer with In Rainbows. Anyway, I won't change the Standard track list for Ghost Stories though I still feel they should have put a little instrumentals after ASFOS because it feels a little bit awkward when O comes in right after.
