X Marks The Spot [HIDDEN TRACK]

Recommended Posts

Ah! Cool! I´d not noticed. :D

 

I still wonder who sings "so I race for it". I just am not sure its Chris...

 

I swear it's Will that's his voice!

I re-listened to AIMH after reading this, and you know what?

 

I still don't see what's so bad about it. I love it. My only gripe is it isn't longer, but that is an artistic choice they made and I respect that.

 

Just an opinion...

 

Couldn't agree more! :) The first time I listened to it I was like huh, "Where is the rest of the song" :confused: when it ended. It needs to be longer IMO but at the same time I kinda like how it's short.

My only "complaint" about this song is that it probably needs one more element / idea towards the end to give it the oomph / completeness factor. Idk, maybe a short rap (by a guest), or more full-blown airy guitar, a different mix at the end, or something... It already has so many good / great elements - a beautiful well-constructed beat complete with effects (kudos Will), a dark-ish atmosphere haunting the track, some pretty edgy and dirty guitar work in both low and high registers along with those synths + falling guitars, and is that the first time Chris is musically playing with the rhythm section rather than his usual playmate Jonny? :eek: :p

Stare into darkness, staring at doom

You make my heart go boom, bo-boom boom

Superhero, a masterpiece

Been innocent but a sinner in me

 

Am I the only one hearing "a saviour" instead of "innocent" there?

I can't hear a saviour yet... Still sounds like innocent to me :)

Yeah I think innocent makes more sense but it's like I can't quite hear that exactly.

Sometimes I wish we I don't know had official lyrics to the songs? Such a radical notion for Coldplay lol

After a few listens to AHFOD as a whole, I must admit I think it's more original than Army Of One. At least the "So I race for iiittt" part is cool. Army Of One, on the other hand, is probably the most forgettable song in Coldplay history.

Hmm.. I personally like Army Of One better than XMTS, even if I like XMTS a bit better than I used to. Still my least favorite on the album (even the interludes rate higher in my book).

Guess we disagree on this point. I actually think POC is a pretty good pop song - I do not forget how it stood out from the rest to me on the radio during a time when I never even had heard of the word "Coldplay" (and was thus entirely unbiased).

Wait a second... You're such an active user that I thought you've been a big fan for a long time but you didn't know of Coldplay when Mylo Xyloto came out? :o I mean I'm not that early a fan (I first heard them in the VLV-era) but you're later than me?

No, it's true - I'd never heard of them before the end of 2011 but quickly became a fan (and an ardent proponent of their earlier works, as most people know :D)

and I thought the lyrics is 'so I reach for it' which sounds cooler btw

 

Definitely "race" to my ears. I like race better...gives it more momentum hehe
