If that's their rationale, then I'm glad they included that version. The acoustic one's on the iTunes version, I believe.

While I don't have anything to back that up, it certainly wouldn't surprise me if that was the case. The album version sounds more like the rest of the album - it just goes better with everything else. The album has tremendous, wait for it...

flow.

Yeah, the acoustic version is a bonus track on iTunes. Hopefully we'll get it in lossless form at some point.

Then those guys would do well in a DI tourney.

I'm still happy that this album delivered, that's hard to come by these days.

Apparently I need to officially add this album to ever growing list of "Albums PFan Needs to Hear by the End of Summer '08."

You do indeed.

I just did a quick browse around and it doesn't appear that a higher quality rip is available yet. Oh well. It will soon enough.

That's what X&Y severely lacked for me. Some cracking tunes, but some severely poor cohesion and consistency.

Man, am I going to have to get this album? Even GG reluctantly admitted to liking it, that says a lot to me......

Just listening. Waiting for the high quality rip but yeah some nice touches on this album. Lost is a pretty good song and 42 has some pretty obvious Radiohead touches with the guitar bit from the middle. Yeah dont sound too bad but Violet Hills probably the weakest song and it kinda baffles me why they would put this out first.

Wow, now I'm excited to hear this.

And I'm going to attempt to wait until it's released. We'll see how I do.

Yeah I'm quite surprised to say.....mmmmm its not half bad. The last tracks quite an opus or epic or whatever you wanna call it "death and all his freinds". Yeah weakest track and no mistake Violet Hill, its crap compared to some of the songs on this album. Did Brian Eno produce this or did I get that wrong? Thought I read that somewhere? Damn I wish I had a good quality version of the first song, sounds like it was recorded in my bathroom.
