  1. Aye. What do we reckon is the most complicated song to perform anyways? Kind of a fun conversation: -I feel like Everything's Not Lost is up there for its length and the sort of "which verse or chorus or refrain do we do next", and it seems like every tour they do it slightly differently. Glass of Water and DAAHF stick out to me as songs with funny time signatures. -In terms of songs where you can really see the boys using their brains and communicating with each other, I think the MX tour version of GPASUYF where they have to time the drumroll-into-Jonny's-riff correctly or perhaps
  2. I hear you! That's worth a shot. I don't even own anything that plays cassettes but damnit they're so pretty that I have to have one. I am in the seeming minority that actually likes the MOTS cover a lot, but I just love the planets/Coloratura-nebula. Hilariously, I ALSO get 100% of my Coldplay through CDs with the exception of the Kaleidoscope EP which is an extremely pretty shade of turquoise (the CD is a stupid shade of pink or something) even though I don't have vinyl player. So I can relate. πŸ™‚
  3. Sorry to self-repost but hoping to get an answer to this? ALSO is anyone interested in trading a red cassette for a green cassette LOL? I want to get the Coloratura case, but want the Floris tape because I have PREFERENCES and love green/teal.
  4. I'm over the moon that they posted this. Really increased my enjoyment of the song in a few ways! -Jonny: you can hear the "mistake" in the guitar solo. You can tell it's not just 1 guitar track duplicated but actually 2 separate guitar recordings superimposed. Towards the end of the solo there's a discrepancy where 2 different notes sound, and one of them sounds sort of incorrect, but weirdly works in the song in context anyways. -Will: he sounds GREAT. The effects on his voice are interesting...it sounds a bit like chorus effect, or perhaps his voice duplicated but with an extremel
  5. Question about pre-ordering from the coldplay site - it says ships *on* Oct 15, but if I want to own the CD, does that mean one wouldn't receive the CD until a few days after the 15th? (I'm too stingy to ADDITIONALLY buy the digital download since the CD includes a download card). In the past I've only bought from local record stores but since I'm in the process of moving and I really want the cassette, seemed reasonable to buy off the CP site.
  6. That's an interesting thought! Reminds me of a line from Blur's Under the Westway: "Bring us the day they switch off the machines 'Cause men in yellow jackets putting adverts inside my dreams An automated song and the whole world gone Fallen under the spell of the distance between us when we communicate" My personal theory is that the song is about a utopian world that is welcoming of refugees/space travelers but buried inside a love song / "whoa space is so cool" theme. Everyone before is WELCOMING us now -The US is particularly a place that was built on colonialism and
  7. Indeed I hope it's not just a rehash of Cry Cry Cry. >_>
  8. The LIB synths appear on both tracks so we really don't know yet! They did this on AHFOD too where Colour Spectrum's synths show up at the beginning of the title track, so just on previews it's hard to say yet. Similar deal with LIT showing up in DAAHF as part of the Escapist.
  9. I sort of share this feeling but am optimistic. Sometimes Jonny plays super repetitive solos - eg people LOVE his solo in True Love because yes, it has the most sexy heartbreaking bends of any Coldplay song, but also he just plays the exact same thing twice. I also find songs like In My Place pretttttty repetitive. But perhaps these are a symptom of Chris or the band's collective songwriting choices. But of course we know Jonny's capable of technical greatness when you listen to HLH and Up&Up. That is to say, I hope something really big or unexpected happens in this song, like a huge
  10. This is a fun idea. There's a few songs that are hinted for reworking like UATW and UFO, so I wonder if volume 2 could even be populated with B-sides and alt versions. But that seems like wishful thinking indeed. πŸ™‚
  11. Interesting theory! My guess is that Coloratura was written at the same time as SJLT, Champion of the World, and Flags based on lyrics, and Hypnotised (esp the guitar solo and piano parts) and AICTAIY (for the chord changes) and ALIENS based on music, noting that Coloratura has a brief 5/4 section that sounds vaguely like the end of ALIENS. So my personal guess is 2017, but you could also totally make an argument that it’s from X&Y based on the space themes!
  12. ^^It sounds like you need Adblock Plus my friends^^ (it blocks in-video ads)
  13. [sorry to be double reposting here because i can't tell if the Coloratura thread or this thread is where all the action is at lol] What a brilliant song in every possible way! My only complaint is Jonny's solo is a bit short. But my first few thoughts: -The refugee-centric narrative becomes more clear here. MOTSvol1 sounds like a journey for an alien to somewhere that welcomes them. -The lyrics have an interesting common thread with SJLT and Flags, in which there's a lot of naming-of-historical-figures (if you count superheroes as historical figures). It's not my instant favour

It's not my instant favourite way of being as compared to early Coldplay's vague angst, VLV era vague 1800s angst, or Up&Up which is full of fun imagery/liter
