  1. So exciting It all sounds so cool. Had hoped for a little more typical ‘space rock’ or similar ala All I Can Think About Is You, Square One, Politik and ALIENS but the snippets sound cool anyway Like others have said, I think if there are more volumes, they’ll probably be EPs, rather than two more full MOTS albums. Maybe one for Silencia with reworked Us Against The World, new UFO etc? And then maybe one for Earth which I really hope would include The Race (Whatever It Takes version or a good mix of both)
  2. Guessing The Race isn’t on there then? 😞 Hoping for a EP for the next single with some B-sides like A Sky Full Of Stars/Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall
  3. Ok so I try and not complain about big differences between the studio and live versions of songs because it’s nice for live versions to pack an extra punch but WOW I wish Johnny was so up in the mix on the studio version like he is in on the live version, sounds amazing
  4. Is there a thread or something with what’s been said in interviews with the band yesterday? Haven’t seen one on here or Reddit and I’m really intrigued to see if there’s info slowly coming out about the album I think Hopkins is likely to be involved. I really want Eno on the album and I feel like there’s been enough hints to suggest he might be but I wonder if it’s a case of finishing off some old songs he worked on
  5. I get not liking it but I don’t understand why anyone was expecting rock for this lead single produced by prolific pop producer Max Martin (especially when Coldplay have always been pop anyway, the way people talk about rock here you’d think Coldplay’s first three albums were really heavy or something) i like that it’s got a HLH/Birds vibe but with an 80s touch, hopefully there’s some great rifs on there and maybe some spacey type touches to it too
  6. If there is indeed 12 songs like one of the theories based on symbols suggests I really hope that none of them are short interludes. I don’t mind a good interlude, but if they’re going to be really short I’d rather it be tacked on to a song like with Oceans or UFO. I’m all for longer ones having their own track if you count Kaleidoscope and Bani Adam. I do love Mylo and Hopeful transmission but IMO they should have just been the intros to their respective songs on one track. Could have still been titled ‘Mylo Xyloto/Hurts Like Heaven’
  7. I feel like I’ve got no idea what to expect. Obvs it’s going to be poppy, it’s a shame if people are getting their hopes up for a big rock song but I still don’t know what we’ll get. I think it won’t be ASFOS level easy listening, and I think it’ll have more depth than HFTW, but yeah I could see it being Paradise, ETIAW or Adventure level. When I think about the two versions of The Race, they’re both synthy and modern, although the documentary version sounds like it’s got a bit of an older touch and neither of those are overwhelmingly typical pop and I’m kind of hoping that, along wi
  8. I’m not sure because a lot of artists get that exact same spot with the YouTube music sign, like Celeste in this post below and when I’ve seen it before I don’t remember it being anything to do with a YoutTube Music exclusive if that’s what you mean. I think they’re just similar to the Amazon Music billboards that tend to say ‘Alexa play Coldplay’ etc as a way to promote both the brand and the artist, rather than saying you’ll hear this music here first/exclusively https://www.instagram.com/p/CKjVNhKFsjJ/?igshid=16yevlbo99j3z
  9. Very excited! Love reading everyone’s theories, really excited to see what the band have cooked up. I was really unsubscribed to the idea that this could end up being for an EP and I’m still hoping this is the start of a new album campaign. However if the idea that the re-recording of Us Against The World is involved is true, mixed with people’s musings on the five symbols, it could maybe be the lead single released as an EP with 4 b-sides if there’s a big gap between the lead single and the album perhaps. I don’t think that’s likely the case, especially with the level of m
  10. OK so it's really nice and has a similar vibe to Vampire Weekend's recent output like people of mentioned but I don't know what to do with it. I was originally planning on putting it after guns or Eko but I don't know if it fits now I've heard it but then again the album is so varied, maybe it just needs time in that spot to feel part of the bigger picture
  11. Has anyone mentioned the organ like sounds in Champion Of The World's intro are slightly reminiscent of Fix You?
