ELIMINATION #1: PARACHUTES

Recommended Posts

Just one of the weaker songs on Parachutes in my opinion. I don't think it's bad just doesn't have the musical depth some of the other songs have on the album... and the way people go on about it. Criminally overrated, especially compared with songs like Spies and We Never Change. I even think High Speed is vastly superior. It drags on a bit as well and it sounds suspiciously similar to Grace by Jeff Buckley :uneasy:

Ha ha, the similarity to Grace is undeniable! Yup, it doesn't have the textures of most of the other songs on the album. I heard a rumor that they recorded a more atmospheric version for The Blue Room (think in the same vein as Don't Panic on TBR, the more upbeat Spies, and the instrumental We Never Change). Hopefully it exists and we'll get to hear it one day! :)

Double elimination and I once again vote for Careful Where You Stand (can this one just die already? :P). What is everyone's opinion on the tiebreaker system I'm using? Do you guys think it's fair?

Only Superstition...

 

 

p.s. there are two versions of Brothers & Sisters (Bro&Sis EP and Trouble EP)... do we consider only one?

p.p.s. same thing for Don't Panic (Album and Blue Room EP)

You could just judge it based on the song itself, regardless of the version I guess? But yeah I decided not to include different versions of songs otherwise we'd be here all month. ;)
