The middle of the 3 songs. Kinda boring, the instrumentation is too slow for the Mike's raps and Chester's screaming

The chorus sounds just like Guilty All The Same. Like it's literally the same structure and everything

People are always going to hate on what Linkin Park put out, but so far this album is sounding better than any of their recent material.

Are you talking about GATS? If that's the case, it's not that I haven't liked him there. It's just... meh. He could have put some more energy.

It alright, the chorus kinda sucks and it just feels like Linkin Park are half-assing it.

I think they should've tuned the guitars back down a half-step like the early records, Chester's voice sounds weak with this
tuning

I really loved LP back then when they released Hybrid Theory or Meteora but... then they really started to.. blow... to put it simply, and this seems to be a bit of comeback to their original roots but.. somehow I cant help myself.. but this blows actually too, even thought its really different from the previous two albums they had released...

Listening to the live version. Sounds a lot better than the preview, but still not great. The chorus feels like it needs a bit something more, but I like Mike's parts

Yeah, I think Mike is going to be the strongest thing on this album, going off the singles.

I depends on his role in the album. Out of three, this is the only song where I've heard his voice so he might not play a huge role. But that's just a theory. I hope he does.

Chester doesn't drink or smoke or do drugs due to past addiction problems. That doesn't really make him straight edge
though. I have no clue about the others.
