Listened to it this morning. I really enjoyed about the first half, pretty much everything up to the Rihanna song. I didn't think much of that track - it doesn't seem to fit.

Everything afterwards, I liked less than the first half.

Was very disappointed that the opening track sounded so distorted. I didn't notice it as much the rest of the album, but it's getting to the point where I actually get angry to hear something mixed so poorly.

Aren't we at the point in this loudness war bullshit that artists want to DO something about it? Do they not have a say in it? Do they actually think it sounds good? I do not understand why it continues to be an issue.

Cori has questions, and is demanding the answers.

I'm going to occupy the record companies until they fix it.

ALL the record companies.

Yeah, the digital version is pretty badly mixed. Damn loudness war...
I've heard reports that the vinyl version sounds a bit better, though. My copy is on pre-order, so it should be nice to compare!

I have the CD and ripped it. Granted, I know it's not going to sound as good on an iPod, but there should not be obvious distortion when I don't even have the EQ on.

Right. It's abnormal. Three of the tracks are a part of another track, one of them is a very short track, and four of them don't fit/are filler, and don't really add to the album. When listening to this album, you can literally cut it down/reshape it into about 7 songs that appropriately fit the album. The rest doesn't belong for one reason or another. I never implied that 11 or 14 tracks isn't regular.

I didn't mind the transitions.

..... I know you were all totally waiting for me to chime in, because I'm so important and shit.

Can someone explain to me the difference between regular and normal?

You know, there's this album I like, it's called The Unforgettable Fire, but man, that album really pisses me off. It promises to be ten tracks long, but when you listen to it, two of the tracks are so short they don't even matter, one is really an intro for another song and shouldn't really count as a track at all, one is just 7 minutes of experimenting and one sounds almost identical to another track on the album. So really, you're only getting a 5 song album. What a rip-off!

How about some context?

Yeah except 4th of July is it's own piece of work, not 3 introduction pieces given their own track number and title. MLK and Promenade are also significant pieces of work, not just some random crap throw in like U.F.O.. I don't know what song you'd be referring to as an introduction for another song. What Coldplay has done is like the equivalent of taking the first 35 seconds of Streets, giving it it's own track listing, and giving it a title.

Another discussion for another day, but Elvis Presley and America does not 'sound exactly like another track on the album'. Whoop whoop, it's A Sort of Homecoming's drums slowed down and backing tracks reversed. That doesn't make it sound exactly like it. Other than hearing the same drum beat (for one listening), both songs are very distinctive.

I love that you got almost none of those right.

Context? Why on earth do you need context? are we not literally having this conversation right now?

Oh, clearly I am also quite uneducated with U2's music. Enlighten me. What have I gotten so wrong, your majesty?

Why would you need context? Because you're quoting me and manipulating words. There's so many other ways you could go about this, but instead you choose to act the way you're acting.

One, I was joking. It made me laugh that one person can ambiguously talk about one thing and someone else think they were talking about the other.

As for context, I never twisted your words. I accidentally used the word regular instead of normal, because honestly they mean almost the same damn thing. I then satirically asked for someone to explain to me the difference between the two words and you asked for context as if we had not just literally been having the exact conversation that gives the context only moments before.
