I'm with you, I think the transitions work really well and, actually, the instrumental before Every Teardrop makes me like Every Teardrop a little bit more than I did before.

I think that the transitions are one of the major strengths of the album, especially so, as GAF said, pertaining to Teardrop.

I'll agree that the transitions are pretty integral. It would feel like a collection of singles and (mostly) b-sides without them.

They are integral. Teardrops isn't nearly as abrasive with the transition before it.

Like I said, I know what they're going for. I just feel as though the album lacks serious depth and they're the excuse for it.

Just like LemonMelon said (although he isn't particularly agreeing with me). It feels like a collection of singles and b-sides.

I guess I see right through the transition tracks. But perhaps it's not the transition track's fault. I just feel that there's seriously something missing. Something that Viva la Vida accomplished that the rest of the Coldplay albums failed to do (or so in my opinion).

The transition tracks need not be tracks at all. They're just extended intros to HLH, T=W and DLIBYH, that are separated from the songs proper. They enhance the album, in my opinion. It's a beautifully flowing album, though I will say I still very much prefer of VLVODAAHF.

I Dont know about you but copy of iTunes gives the length of songs.

Haw haw haw...

I was talking about the fact that they stuck out 14 tracks on it and yet only about 5 or 6 tracks are even notable (assuming we're not counting 3 transition tracks, and then the opinion of lack of depth or not).

That has nothing to do with the length of tracks or number of songs though. That's just your opinion, man.

What? It has 14 tracks. They release an album with a track listing of 14. You expect something in the ballpark. I acknowledged the fact that it's an opinion, but said opinion has all the world to do with the number of songs.

I don't even get what you're saying. There are "14" songs, two (three?) Are transitions, and great ones, imo, at that, but you don't count them, so you think you're getting gyped because only 5 or 6 songs out of 14 are "notable"? If you're not counting them, then 5 or 6 out of 11 songs are "notable", which isn't bad.

I'm confusing myself, I find this to be a pretty stupid thing to be up in arms about.

It seems like you're having two different arguments. One saying you want a longer album than what you got and one saying you expected better songs...???

Doesn't matter how long an album is, as long as the songs are good. King Of Limbs is a ripper at 8 tracks, while Parklife is brilliant at 16 tracks.

I'd rather 3 transition tracks that work, than 3 complete songs that are just filler.
