Am I the only one who doesn't think what he does in XMTS is rapping? Seems more like singing to me lol.

No, it's definitely not rapping. How did Coldplay describe it when they released the track listing? "Spitting rhymes into a vocoder"??

I agree.

That was mentioned in the Q Magazine's review of the album.

You´re not the only one. What Adele does in the carpool karaoke video is rapping hehe Not what Chris does in XMTS, I agree. Its a monotone singing, you can probably narrow it down to very few notes, but there are notes in there, musical tones, not just words. So I would classify it as a.....rap-wannabe style of singing *lol*

I was thinking, I'd like to hear this song in an epic gut-punching remix as an intermission during the tour. Could be a nice divider between different elements and stage setups. A bit like U2 used the Gavin Friday remix of 'The Fly' during the i+e tour.

 

Just a silly thought... :wink3:

I thought the song was weird (different) at first but after listening to Army of One and transitioning to XMTS it flows nicely. Could be because Army of One is my favorite song in the album so i'm still in a state of euphoria when XMTS starts :)

Ill go ahead and say I think XMTS is the saddest song on the album hehe Its just very somber and reflective....some people may not have noticed cuz they did not get past the "Boom boom" lyrical line and the song sort-of-rap style, but its actually thematically imo closer to Ghost Stories than AHFOD hehe

My thoughts exactly. :)

I love this song!

 

It makes me think of someone that is ready to face their fears: "Stare into darkness, stare into doom, you make my heart pu-pum pu-pum pum."

 

Then he finally surrenders to the fear: "Let defeat come along when I'm finding no peace... So I put my hands up, feeling alive, got a rocketship that I wanna ride." Then he feels the bliss!

I didn't like this song so much the first times I heard it... But now it's one of my favourites of AHFOD. It's so different from most of Coldplay songs but in the end it's also wonderful.

I really really wish they were. It would make it a lot easier to sing confidently knowing you're singing the right lyrics!

By the way, they also don't have the lyrics to Chinese Sleep Chant, the other hidden song. As far as I can tell, all the lyrics online are very inaccurate for this song. I think I've come very close to figuring out the correct lyrics.

Haha, isn't that the fun of it?

I remember discussing the lyrics of Birds with Leo.

The things we heard weren't always the same.

And, now that I've heard Birds live it seems that Chris is singing something different as well. [emoji1]
