nowayme Posted November 15, 2017 Share Posted November 15, 2017 Hey everyone. We all know that Talk early on supposed to have completely different lyrics by the demo that floats around the internet. We all also know that some remixes (Junkie XL and Dave Aude) of the actual track contain some slightly different lyrics to the track. What we don't know is that those lyrics ALMOST made it to the final release of X&Y Album and they were replaced -literally- last minute. How do I know that? Well while I was trying to recreate that version over here ( https://coldplaying.com/forum/index.php?threads/talk-pre-relase-lyrics-version.110810/ ) I noticed something very odd on the spectral analysis of the song. The parts where the new lyrics are ("In the future where would I be" instead of "or swim a river out to the sea" and the new re-arranged bridge with the "when you worry about the future and the 3rd world war") their upper high end of frequencies cut on a different place than the rest of the song. This translates into a very bad rough cut and paste job done on the studio, most possibly even after that actual album was mastered. So what I'm saying here is what you hear on the album is badly cut and paste job that was done the last minute. Once you actually track where the cut parts are you can actually even hear that it's slightly off. (Sorry if I ruined anybody's experience of listening the song!) Here's a graphical explanation of what I mean: 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
