GATS > Until It's Gone > Rebellion > Wasteland > this

This song is just SO sterile sounding. Wasteland has decent parts but isn't spectacular. Guilty all the Same is pretty cool, and until it's gone sounds like standard linkin park. Rebellion is catchy but doesn't really go anywhere.

The production on all of the songs is AWFUL though.

LOATR is the best song on MTM ok

This isn't the official production because they want to stop people downloading songs illegally for free with good quality. The iTunes versions or Spotify versions have better production I think.

I don't see whats wrong with the production. It sounds nice and raw compared to Living Things. It actually sounds pretty similar to their first two albums. My major complaint is that Chester's vocals just don't seem as powerful but that may be what they're going for.

I read a detailed, lengthy interview with the guitarist/rapper a couple weeks ago and he said "The Hunting Party" was going to be their heaviest album. It seems to be quite the opposite so far. But I gotta say I like this song the best so far. It's obviously not as heavy, but it's really catchy which none of the other singles are so far.

Terrible. I'd even go so far as to say worst song by them to date.
There's literally nothing characteristic about this song.
A bunch of riffs, a drum beat and a guy constantly singing 5 notes up n' down.
Same pattern and so exhausting to listen to.
As if it's already meant to be the soundtrack of some upcoming transformers movie.

It sounds nothing like their first two albums. Those albums were slick and polished sounding, just like the three that came after it, and that's the sound I always associated with Linkin Park. This sounds like a demo.

I feel the album will have some growth power (GATS, Wastelands), but damn half of the album is out and yet there isn't even one great track so far (good ≠ great).

song is ... ok at best.. it's more like a punk-rock song (and for whatever reason song reminds me of P.O.D. and little bit of Sum-41), i don't even know where does PH sing in that.. there's a ok guitar solo in it and Mike does most the singing
