    I think most of people here need the original lyrics AND the Japanese translation of them which only come with physical versions.

    I have the japanese release, and it does not come with the lyrics in english nor japanese whatsoever. Just a brief mention of the song's composers and producers at the end of the little japanese booklet... So, I don't know where we can find official lyrics for it.

    This (from a post earlier this year) was quite interesting!

    No idea if someone already noticed it, but it looks like this year (about a month after the request for reconsideration was received) a suspension letter was written. Not sure what it actually means. I suppose it's better than a refusal!




    It would be such a bummer if this project gets delayed due to some kind of legal issue...

    Yes, you're right. I consider it a failure if I'm honest with you. Adding and producing one or two more pages in the booklet should not have been a problem at all. 

    Well, it is a problem when it comes to mass production. Adding two more pages involves a lot when it comes to assembling and such. And as per the quality, maybe the japanese manufacturer just uses more premium materials (higher quality paper, ink and printers) to make the books, that's no wonder since japanese factories tend to have higher quality standards...

    The other day I received a physical copy of the Japanese edition of Everyday Life. I was surprised to discover that it was different from the regular version, which I had purchased before, in another aspect apart from the inclusion of Flags as a bonus track. Except for the majority of the text and the symbols, in my opinion the surface of the standard version is matt and lustreless, so are the pages of the booklet. They're solid and sturdy. On the other hand, the hardcover of the Japanese edition is more glossy. I find the surface more smooth. Even the booklet looks more high-quality and feels more pleasant to touch as they are glossy as well. It reminded me of an exhibition catalog. Morevover, I was shocked to find out that the CD had been additionally put in a protective plastic packet despite being in the album case itself!

    I have both regular and japanese versions of EL. I didn't notice the increase of quality, have to chech them side by side, I just opened it once to copy the tracks on my PC (real lossless Flags sounds SO GREAT). The extra bag for the CD was a nice detail tho. What kinda pissed me off was the fact that there's no lyrics for Flags on the booklet, just a little mention of the track on the japanese mini-booklet, but no lyrics.

  5. Haha guys, there's no need to say "this is gonna be like this or that", since we have a lot of time until the next album comes out and we don't know nothing about it but the mention of MOTS in the booklet. We have theories, yes, but they're just theories in the end. Also, imma laugh out loud when MOTS comes out and it ends up being poppy as AHFOD XD

    Agree with you on everything but this part. The Talk version on X&Y is actually one of the earlier ones recorded. The band have talked about how they recorded that song and didn't feel it was good enough so they made many different versions which they weren't happy with either and at some point they chose to go back to the early version. So it could well have been written in 2004.

    Yeah, I know they re-recorded several versions of this gorgeous track, but I was referring to this particular edited audio file of Talk, since you can tell the ending was swapped with the one from the album. I wasn't talking about the band's endless attempts to make the song sound perfect back in 2004-2005, I was talking about how this audio file might have been edited just a couple days ago, not in 2004 as the title of the folder suggests... 

  7. I hate to be "that guy" here, but that's not a genuine FLAC copy of this outstanding demo (my all time favorite). The spectrograms below show us that someone just re-encoded the existing MP3 @ 160kbps version we already have and converted it to FLAC 48KHz, 24 bit audio. Those specs alone made me doubt about this file, it's almost imposible to find a demo in such high quality. I guess we'll have to stick to the 160kbps version... Cool story though!!!

    Here you can see the regular MP3 vs this FLAC file. They're the same:

    EDIT: I'm also pissed off... This has the ending of the regular Talk from the album. So, saying this is from 2004 is just BS hahaha! It's not just a re-encoded version but also an adulterated one...
