  1. So I was messing around with some stuff and since the original instrumental is literaly, well, just that!, I readded the choir layer without Chris'es vocal take. I have his voice isolated too and it's sooo sooo sweet! I'll share everything I got once I get my new computer, but get ready to be excited! I'm posting this here for the moment just for fun! https://mega.nz/file/FCRBAADQ#rYo-lYE2J-Axsq79U4ohhYpWXtngxD4hRIsKmMbcZP4
  2. Man clean edits can be stupid. What I mean is I hate when you do clean edits you put no effort into them. Atleast make them sound proper, like they were intended to sound that way, not a hodgepodge cut-copy-paste job that everybody is going to notice that something's wrong. What is that "SAME [akward gap] BLOOD!" supposed to mean? Chris sings every word on-the-beat on that part. It sounds weird when it skips one when your brain is trained to expect it. Find the tempo of the song and make it sound properly like there's nothing edited out you supposed professional sound engineer that gets paid so much money. You had one job! Here's how it should sound: https://mega.nz/#!BKhxGAIS!Tat1dWwWpl7r2zSSHKuAaxBcnwMpCqWn0XK3PMUOs0g
  3. It was physical, it got really bad the last year to the point we had to rush her to the ER and the doctors essentialy told me that she's dieing and I must be prepared but my brain rejected the thought. I'm so mad at myself right now. I have guilt.
  4. So I'm gonna post this here for everyone without saying anything, but promise me that you won't skip anything on your first listen and you'll close your eyes and listen from the beginning the whole thing! So... https://mega.nz/#!laoGDIqI!XkoxStmA63gxFtMgybG0Ia4bZPt0AbV6d2ijfnFTF_4
  5. I have the soundboard recording and it really doesn't sound any different, that's what I'm trying to say. My only issue is that the studio version of Color Spectrum is mono.
  6. I kind of already did that here: https://coldplaying.com/forum/index.php?threads/a-head-full-of-dreams-ahfodt-studio-version.110706/ I doubt with what we have as raw material you can get any closer.
  7. Cuts out the sound effect intro and the bridge is shortened to just 4 bars ("Music is the weapon, music is the weapon of the future" is just said once). Not bad. Also, it's clean.
  8. They just released two radio promos for the track. EU: 1. Arabesque (Explicit) (5:40) 2. Arabesque (Clean) (5:40) 2. Arabesque (Instrumental) (5:40) US: 1. Arabesque (Radio Edit) (4:56) 2. Arabesque (Radio Instrumental) (4:56) Got the EU one but now I'm trying to get the US one since it says that the content is not available in my region.
  9. I saw your post a week ago but I was hesitating on posting a reply because I wanted to be as honest and as intimate as possible. Now that I have some spare time and I can sit behind the keyboard relaxed, I can share my story with you, infact, all of you. I'll try to be as short as possible so I won't make anyone of you tired but without skipping any key aspects. So I've been battling with depression for over a decade now. In 2017 it got so bad that I attempted to take my life in a public space and people jumped on, stopped me, the authorities got involved etc. One of my best friends, a year prior to my attempt, booked for both of us tickets for the AHFODT in Munich with the promise that I would travel to Germany to see her and go together. Obviously all that happened before my mental health nose-dived almost a month prior to the show, so when she learned the news she knew I wouldn't make it. During the time of my deteriorating mental health I would listen on repeat the Kaleidoscope Interlude, Talk and Don't Panic in their Instrumental forms, which put me deeper and depper into depression. So after I failed on taking my life I was in a weird limbo state for a week or so. 2 weeks prior to the show, I wake up and I said "OK, now you know how rock bottom feels like, try something else now, just anything, ANYTHING" so I picked up the phone and I told my friend that I'm actually gonna come to Germany and we'll watch the show together. She just couldn't believe it, nor my parents, or my friends. So I travel to Germany and we go to Olympia Stadium. The atmosphere was AMAZING, so warm, everyone in the crowd was so kind and we all felt like a family, I really felt like I was in heaven, like it was after life. The show started with "O mio babbino caro" which put me in a bittersweet mood and it ended with the BELIEVE IN LOVE lyric encore with pyrotechnics which made me reconsider the value of life. It was that moment my head for the first time tilted up! UP! I was looking for the first time up! I was crying after the show in a state of pure happiness, I couldn't put my feelings into words. For the next years I would slowly but increasingly get better. My friend and I would listen to Coldplay day and night and we would spend hours and hours of discussions with their albums playing on the background. Depression would creep in every now and then but it would eventually get better. So this year I made some pretty bold decisions about my life since I would turn 30. I lost 24kg that I gained because of the antidepressants. I started to excercise. I worked ALOT. I fell in love for the first time with myself. It took me 30 years to fall inlove with myself. Everybody would notice the difference in me. But then my friend's health would deteriorate. My life got a little bit messed up at a point and it resulted me being too busy taking care of my life than contacting and taking care of her. So when I heard the news that Coldplay is going to drop a new single I was planning to get back to her and surprising her with it. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be. My friend passed away the day that Orphans got released before I was able to speak to her. I was broken. It felt like my spirit and all the work I did the last 2 years has been demolished like a sand castle in a blink of an eye. The moment I heard the news I rushed to a common friend's house becauseonly he could understand my loss. In order to reach his house I had to use our Metro (subway) which regularly as most greek people around here know plays classical and orchestal music on the stations. So I get to the station and suddently "O mio babbino caro" starts to play. I closed my eyes, I started crying and I started praying "please make me open my eyes and be at the Coldplay concert, make this all be a nightmare, please I'd cut my hand off for this to be just a nightmare". Then the train came and I had to contain myself from the disappointment. Then I got the album and I felt numb, unable to feel, negative or possitive. I would constantly think what would my friend think ofthis and that track. Then it hit me! Music has power, but we are the ones that gives it a face and identity. I am the one that decided that the Instrumental versions of Kaleidoscope, Talk and Don't Panic depress me and chosen these versions instead of the hopefull lyrical messages their vocals versions have. I chose negativity instead of positivity. Maybe I can chose that about the new album too? Or maybe I could even choose happiness?! And then the words of Charlie Chaplin's speech from the Dictator movie included in the intro of the tour version of A Head Full Of Dreams hit me: "You, the people have the power - the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure." I will leave you with this my friend @I ran away !
  10. OK I don't know if it has already been mentioned but now I know why the interlude is cut into pieces. Propably they bet that people would play it while driving on a car and most cars display CD-Text data and if you play it back track by track the screen will flash one by one letter the phrase G O D = L O V E kinda simulating a projection or a video effect. YOU, yeah you, the person that mastered that disc, you are a f*cking genious, you really outsmarted me! Except the fact that as I said you abused the redbook audio standard, ONCE AGAIN!
  11. The piano in the beginning of Kaleidoscope sounds way too close to Bani Adam.
  12. Wait a minute... Is it just me or Bani Adam sounds like the first small part of Kaleidoscope before the static to the other piano part with the poem? Was that a precursor or a demo to it? Or even a hint of something they are working on?
  13. My only hope is that they have an analogy of more happy songs. That's it. Oh and I love their interludes but they need to make a little bit more sence than the ones on Everyday Life or atleast be more produced with proper Coldplay elements to them than just some stock bland sound effects from a royalty free library. Like I heavily doubt anybody is interested to hear just a sound effect of a noisy town and a little bit after that birds with the sound of a clock tower or church. They don't seem to offer anything to the record. It needs to be something more like Keleidoscope, A Hopefull Transmission, O or whatever. But then again I don't want to take away anything from their freedom of artistic expression, even though I think they did a rather questionable choice here which ended up sounding better as an idea than in practice.
  14. Just got a lossless promo of it. I think it's time to make an "Eveyday Life" dedicated downloads section.
  15. "O", was originally mastered with a pregap. Somebody down the promotion/mastering chain must have found that a horrible idea and they re-issued the disc with simply a gap before the retail disc went to stores. Some copies of that disc though still made it to people's hands. All promotional copies of the album that predate the official release contain the pregap marking. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pregap
