  1. Sorry if people have already asked - but, is there a decent recording of this concert going around?
  2. Try explaining that to their packed concert halls full of 20-, 30-, and 40-somethings...
  3. I'm going to say Ghost Stories, just to piss off every "Oldplayer" going. In all seriousness, I would say Viva as well. AROBTTH is great, but the tie-breaker for me is the fact that I don't hate any song on Viva. On AROBTTH, I can't bloody stand "A Whisper".
  4. With your point being what, exactly?
  5. I have to admit, on first listen, I have really enjoyed the album. However, my concern is that the transition between certain songs just doesn't work. It's too sudden and/or incongruous. So I started playing around and came up with the following revised track list (Miracles included!): 1. A Head Full of Dreams 2. Amazing Day 3. Army of One & X Marks the Spot 4. Birds 5. Everglow 6. Kaleidoscope 7. Adventure of a Lifetime 8. Fun 9. Hymn for the Weekend 10. Miracles 11. Up&Up 12. Colour Spectrum Having Colour Spectrum offers a sort of Life in Technicolor-The Escapist transition that adds a degree of circularity to the record. Have you changed the track listing at all in your own playlists?

    Up&Up

    Outstanding. Don't understand all the hate the mastering is getting on here. I really, really don't.
  7. Why did they need to talk over this beautiful piece of music?! :(
  8. The live version is almost soulless... but the album version with the strings... oh my. So, so stunning. 9/10
  9. I was expecting this to be utter garbage going by what I'd been told on this forum. It's better than Army of One. Army of One should be the hidden track behind X Marks the Spot.
  10. So.. AHFOD is Coldplay channelling their inner U2. If Chris wasn't signing on this, I'd think this was The Script. Now, there's nothing wrong with The Script. I've actually seen them live twice and quite like the band. But shouldn't it be The Script parodying Coldplay, and not the other way round? It's a listenable track, but not particularly memorable.
  11. Without the voiceover... this would have been a lovely, lovely interlude. Oh well.
  12. This is fantastic. What a brilliant collaboration. I never hated Princess of China (I liked the acoustic version that was released), but I find it's the song I almost always skipped on MX. This, however, is joyous listening. The two vocals complement each other so, so well. Typical atmospheric guitar from JB and Guy, again, proving he's the star of this album. 9/10. Easily the best song on the album - so far - on my first listening. However this is as far as I've got with my first listen!
  13. I really actually quite like this song. Clearly isn't the best on the record, but it's listenable, and going by the above, it's pleasant live as well.
  14. Loved it on first listen. From the clips on Instagram, I thought this would be the one I would hate.
