  1. All this hatred from critics was heavily predictable since the end of the EL era and the first hints about the direction they were taking with MOTS. And, to be honest, I strongly agree that this is by far the most disappointing effort they could ever perform
  2. Brilliant Coloratura Great Human Heart Good Higher Power Eh Let Somebody Go Infinity Sign Humankind MOTS Alien Choir What? My Universe People Of The Pride Biutyful MOTS II
  3. I need to give it another proper listen, but for now I can say that Biutyful and People Of The Pride are the worst ones for me. My favourites remain Coloratura, Human Heart and Higher Power
  4. I still wait for the studio version to judge it, they ruined some decent songs with the production through the years, starting from the MX era (I'm thinking of Hurts Like Heaven and Up&Up for example). From the snippet in Overtura it seems like a rip-off of Uprising, so that's why I'm waiting the release of the album before saying anything about it
  5. It's intended to be that way, a little dissonant but organic
  6. MU live @ Global Citizen is just embarassing
  7. they already peaked in production when they put together Brian Eno and Jon Hopkins
  8. Complaining with the guys for performing such a sellout nowadays is really out of place, they started selling out 11 years ago with MX, the only thing left is to appreciate the proper good songs they release once in a while when they remember who they were before the worst. We knew from the beginning what was the purpose for My Universe, and it was not artistically related. At least I can say that imho there are far worse songs in their catalogue (Princess Of China, A Sky Full Of Stars, Miracles, Something Just Like This, Hymn For The Weekend, X Marks The Spot, Orphans)

  10. Death And All His Friends vs Careful Where You Stand
  11. we had to go through 10 years of disappointments to have this one, just to know that they can still properly play and compose quality music. It's a pity that this one (and maybe Human Heart) will be the only song(s) to look for on this era
  12. Cyclades - Keep Shelly In Athens
  13. live version of Everyday Life (the song) is just too good
  14. The more I listen to it, the more it grows on me. It's the perfect photography of the actual world, it's like they've been on "sugar planet" for 10 years and then came back to Earth. It's not only a proper return to form, it's not only artistically relevant and inspired, it's a development and nearly a miracle. It came out of nowhere, in the worst part of their career, when all the faith in them and hope were completely lost. It's cohesive, mature, self-conscious, mystical, open-minded, and (most of all) universal. They are the band who made pop music universal again. You can relate to this
  15. Listened to it: good but kinda forgettable imho. Not enough relevant to be included in the album, but it's not bad
  16. Dear @I ran away, I really appreciate your courage to speak about it, I'm not even close to be a doctor but I think and hope that just doing it in public could be a good way to ease the pain and get a speedy (relatively speaking) recover, along with everything your therapy prescribes. It saddens me to hear this from you just after my return here on CPing, you have always been one of the most well-known and beautiful voices here and I know that life could be very tough at times, but I couldn't see it coming. In my life I've been lucky enough not to suffer of this kind of illnesses, so I can't
  17. Because Chris mental health in 2011 was clearly badly influenced by his ending relationship with Gwyneth and stress led to "different points of view about the direction the band should have been taking"
  18. My dream is always the same since 2008: Credits Producer: Jon Hopkins
