I love the operatic backing vocals in this! Of the two new songs we heard this morning, this one is the one I'm liking! It really shows off Chris' range.

I really like the intro but the rest is a bit meh. Mainly because the lyrics are so cheesy.

I must disagree. I am not sure why I am still alive after listening to this! It was EPIC EPIC EPIC! The soundscape, the melody, the haunting (very appropriate as we talk Ghost Stories hehe) feeling to it! It´s already set on repeat here.

As for the lyrics being cheesy, it depends how you relate to them I suppose. For me this song is very very timely so I was crying as I listened to it and it was very poignant for me. That coupled with Jonny´s amazing riff it was just heaven!

May can not come fast enough...

This one and Midnight at the time are the best. Waiting for Ocean, ASFOS and O.

I will give it some time to grow on me, but the lyrics are a real disappointment to me

Agree to disagree I guess : )
Absolutely :) But I think it also depends on the context. Take simple words like I love you. They can either be cheesy or very emotional and powerful, depending on how you feel, how they are said and so on. So yeah I am sure that listening to Another´s Arms in another frame of mind, the lyrics can come off as cheesy.

I also loved them though cuz they are simple, like in Magic. There is something between the simple lyrics that match the understated music. In my ears, they seem to go together if you know what I mean :)

I was never aware they were gone hehe If by being back you mean with more mellow music? I think we all knew LP6 was going to be more mellow. But in each album they always mixed mellow with more up-tempo tunes. I am starting to think Ghost Stories will feature NO up-tempo song though hehe Which is ok by me cuz MX had tons of those anyway :)

Ok I am waiting for someone else in this community to join me in proclaiming Another´s Arms EPIC. That someone, are you out there somewhere? LOL I saw the reaction on twitter and people seem to really be taken with this song, a bit like they were with Fix you, so I am thinking it will be well-received for sure :)

I remember hearing the MX songs live and loving how explosive they were!
I'm really not sure on Another's Arms and Always in my Head.
The lyrics for Another's Arms are incredibly cheesy, hmmm

Aha! I'm not hating!:laugh3:
I just feel a little weary and unsure of how Ghost Stories will play out in a stadium

Lyrically its not that good. But I'm loving the back vocals and I love that its so simple. I feel like listening to in a park on a sunny day just laying there and enjoying the world would be perfect.

This song is my best bet of being truly phenomenal in this record. I really loved it live and will possibly love it even more in the studio version. The lyrics aren't that cheesy for me, I think coldplay cannot write worse lyrics than POC and even Paradise to be honest....Its quite a welcome change and even mildly sexual in its tone and production. I really like it and wonder who was the woman who sang those bits?
