to be exact it is not like that. It is game of chance. There is no beyond. And many things can be statistical illusion unless proved otherwise.

I think it's pretty good and fit album well.

Just beautiful. Obviously I'm a little biased since our master's poem is used on it. Actually feels quite weird listening to what you've been reading since childhood read in English!

The best interlude they ever done I must admit, elegantly beautiful

loved the piano and instrumentation, nice interlude, but I thought Obama's amazing grace was needless. totally diminished the vibe the track had going - total fail, will edit out that part for sure.

هست مهمانخانه این تن ای جوان

هر صباحی ضیف نو آید دوان

هین مگو کین مانند اندر گردنم

که هم اکنون باز پرد در عدم

هرچه آید از جهان غیب وش

در دلت ضیفست او را دار خوش

.............................

This being human is a guest house...

Every morning a new arrival....

 

A joy, a depression, a meanness

Some momentary awareness comes

As an unexpected visitor!

 

Welcome and entertain them all...

Be grateful for whoever comes

Because each has been sent as a guide

 

 

this is a persian poem from Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi (مولانا) one of the greatest iranian poets in all history.

In terms of Coldplay instrumentals, this is my favorite yet. Colour Spectrum is about as good as M.M.I.X, but I am totally going to add Kaleidoscope to my writing playlist. It's charming and calming.

Without the voiceover... this would have been a lovely, lovely interlude. Oh well.

The voiceover is the best part of it for me! Absolutely love this interlude so much and I don't even know why

This is probably one of if not my fav from the album. Absolutely beautiful and so fitting for the album. I cried when listening because it just made me so happy that they had made that hahaha :P

 

The poem was beautiful and also just instrumental was gorgeous. I feel like they will play this on tour and have the poem on the screens, a whole U2 sort of thing and it will be absolutely amazing! :D

I can only come to the conclusion that this isn't a song. It's a work of art.

 

Yes.

I thought I was the only one, lol! I cried as well hearing it for the first time. The poem is beautiful and I'm trying to reach this kind of acceptance for my own life as well. And then this message embedded in so beautiful music... Aw.

Sweet interlude and I find the narrator voice soothing. Also provides the central theme of the whole album, so nice addition :)

 

Lana Del Rey also had a poem in the middle of her latest album. I kinda like this, adds an extra artistic touch to the work and also a little breather between songs :)

Absolutely absolutely beautiful. I love the poem and I love that Coldplay used it. As someone has already said, it provides a wonderful breather. The instrumentals and production is amazing, I wish it was longer with more poetry and such but considering its on one of Coldplay's better albums (and certainly the best in years) that's okay.

Do kinda wish I could hear Obama more on this track but even that clip adds to the song.

 

I for one am thankful I practically missed him until someone here pointed out where he is *lol*
