  1. Haha, I can't help it. Whenever I read an article or see something on the Internet, I like to read some of the comments, despite not intervening most of the time.
  2. Reading the comment section of that article is disgusting. I don't understand how people get to hate like that. I can understand that you don't like something and that's ok, but from that to hate... That's a long way.
  3. I get that this song is directly connected to Scott, both musically and lyrically, but when I was listening to the lyrics for the first time I felt immediately connected to the story of Mylo in the comics of MX (those who have read it will understand), more precisely here: "I tried my best to be just like the other boys in school" "I tried my best at taking flak but my rocket-ship reversed" "But I'll stand before conquistadors till I'm champion of the world" And especially this one : "And in my dreams onto my chest she'll bring the colours and say "I wandered the whole wide world but baby, you're the best"" For reference of which part I'm talking about: MX #2: Cover-Up PT 2 So, could this song have originally been made for the MX era? (At least some of the lyrics...)
  4. Thanks a lot! Your interpretation is very clear. Now I get how is this connected with the rest of the album. Certainly, in our Everyday Life we all have someone we rely on when we desperate need help. Also, it fit with the filosofy behind Bani Adam.
  5. So, I'm trying to connect this song with the rest of the album but I still struggle to do that. Does anybody has an idea of who is he talking to in this song? A person that he loves, someone who is dead and he miss a lot, maybe god?
  6. You should try the comics, I can assure you that it will improve your experience with MX! On the other hand, yes, EL doesn't have that much of fluidity like MX, but it's still a concept album the same way Viva is. And I'm sure with time we will improve our understanding of how properly that album works.
  7. As I said, the majority of them are not connected only because of a story behind (like MX) but also lyrically, melodically and visually. In this case specifically, it's easy to see the visual connection (all the graffiti/color vs darkness/glow), the melodical connection (electric sound, heavy bass, louder guitar) and the lyrical connection (rebelion, oppression, love, struggle). Again, seems to me that you're not identifying the parameters of what a concept is.
  8. This song has grown on me. I think it's a beautifully narrative of what it feels when someone has to left their family and the ones they love because of work, war or whatever circumstances they are.
  9. If so, he wouldn't be naming 'Tony' at the beginning of the song, so...
  10. Sorry, what? MX is totally a concept album, so I don't understand what are you talking about. All the songs came about the same theme, with the story of the comics behind, and are connected in a melodical, lyrical and a visual way. And so, most of Coldplay's albums do this in a very good way, except the rest of them don't have a comic behind.
  11. I don't think so. The story of Eko is very precise, while Cry Cry Cry is more open to interpretation. Edit: I think Eko is instead probably connected in some ways to Orphans.
  12. This song is so good! It's like a joyful version of 'Feeling Good' by Muse (like I said previously), and it give me also some Queen (?) vibe when they do the arpeggios with the voices.
  13. Old Friends is the lost brother of See You Soon, and I love it.
  14. This song is competing with Everyday Life and Arabesque for the throne of best song of the album, but is growing like wildfire on me! Does anyone has a vibe from 'Ghost Story' on this song?
  15. Now, about Everyday Life... It's for sure the more experimental thing they have done since 2008. To me it's like VLV and AHFOD have a children: taking the varied spectrum of sound from the first and the concept of kindness and gratitude to life from the second. It's raw and weird, but I like it. It's also one of Guy's most prominents albums (a good thing) , but the lack of Jonny is very very noticeable, and that makes it a little bit weak to me (Jonny Boy is my favorite member). Top: Everyday Life, Champion Of The World, Church, Arabesque, Cry Cry Cry. Good: Old Friends, Sunrise, Orphans, Trouble In Town. Normal: Guns, Eko, Daddy. Interludes: BrokEn, WOTW/POTP, When I Need A Friend, Bani Adam.
