  1. I created an alternative version of Ghost Stories using the bonus tracks for personal listening, check out the thread in Multimedia for tracklisting and link if you're interested! I accounted for transitions between tracks so that it maintains a natural flow: http://www.coldplaying.com/forum/threads/52329-Zemy101-s-Modified-Coldplay-Songs-Thread/page13 Managed to keep it at 42 minutes in length too, so it's still concise but IMO sounds a little more complete as an album.
  2. Wow, I really think these two tracks should have been included by default... just need to figure out where to place them on the tracklisting. I also really like the reprise of "O". I do think Chris has an irrational phobia of including too many songs on an album, because it would have worked great here... it's only 9 minutes and 25 seconds of extra music so the runtime would still be sensible at around 50 minutes. Here's my take, ended up being just over 42 minutes: 1. Always In My Head 2. Ink 3. True Love 4. Midnight 5. All Your Friends 6. Another's Arms 7. Ghost Story 8. A Sky
  3. This and True Love are probably my favourites, I think they compliment each other very well! Pure cheese in the first verse but easily forgiven in this case :P. Great sound and the chorus is Coldplay at their best imo. Another's Arms, Midnight and Fly On all tie for 2nd place for me.
  4. I think the album easily has more soul than MX did, It's also much more sonically cohesive which I like. And unlike MX, the more "poppy" songs like Ink and True Love have a unique flair to them that gives them some depth and intrigue. I also like ASFOS more than ETIAW even though it's not really my fourite of the bunch. The cheesy lyrics are something I've just learned to expect as part of the package, but on every album so far there has always been exceptions and Chris can be quite the poet with the right inspiration. Midnight is a great example of this IMO. And even with the more straigh
  5. "Whatever the opposite of Viagra is, Martin seems to have swallowed it before his creative process began." This is everything that's wrong with journalism today in one sentence. Bottom of the barrel... reminds me of the Sun, actively attempting to whip up controvosy where none exists to increase web traffic. You can be a critic without being overtly mocking, especially when it comes to music... just seems like a cheap tactic and wholly unnecessary in this case.
  6. Very impressed that they took the time to do it this way! Great visuals!
  7. I've heard it a few times now, I really liked the live version and especially Jonny's guitar parts. One of my favourites from the new songs. The studio version for me is a little uneven; the last chorus onwards until the end is just perfect, everything is mixed so well and it has real impact. But (personally) I think the piano and especially the guitar is drenched in a little too much reverb before that point, and particularly during the bridge before that last chorus. That guitar solo during the live performance is emphasized and manages to be atmospheric while still being clear and crisp
  8. If it's not too much trouble, I would appreciate a link as well! (I know I'm like the 50th person asking :P )
  9. Pretty much my feeling about it too... I gave it a 6 personally, there are plenty of things I do like about it like you mentioned, and it actually has a few great vocal and sonic flourishes. But the lyrics are just lazy and lackluster (in my opinion). Midnight on the other hand really impressed me so I'm still interested to see how the rest of the album pans out. I'm glad it's coming out a lot sooner than everyone was expecting!
  10. Absolutely Chuck, diet plays a major role in prevention from what I've read also, and all of what you listed aligns with my own observations so far... I have thought about expanding the information in the first post, but it could grow to such a size that anyone passing by would probably be overwhelmed by the amount of youtube clips and reading material that they'll get put off and avoid it all together. I think it's best for it to remain as a non cluttered starting point for people to then continue to research this subject themselves, and as anyone who uses youtube on a fairly regular basis al
  11. Thank you howyousawtheworld, so many people could benefit from this information if only they knew about it! The more this is shared around the better.
  12. Bump, for those who may not have seen this the first time around. Please give it a read and explore the links, especially if you know someone who has been diagnosed with cancer.
  13. Not supporting either candidate (or rather, I wouldn't vote for either of them if I were a US citizen - used to like Obama, not so much anymore). Having said that, here's a video you should watch if you're thinking of voting for Obama in the coming weeks. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Skw-0jv9kts&feature=g-all-u]Obama Supporters Actually Hate Obama's Policies - YouTube[/ame] Also worth noting that WeAreChange don't support Romney either, so this isn't just a stint coming from the Republican side.
