      Hey there!

      Wow, what a compliment! Thanks so much, that means a lot that you like my remixes so much. It's great to hear that someone likes them enough to download them and listen to them more than once. That makes all the work feel like it was worth it!

      I'm glad you like the diversity of my remixes - the truth is that I enjoy good music, regardless of what "genre" it happens to fall into, and I hope that comes across in my remixes. I always try and do something different in my remixes, to try and keep being creative, and it's a great feeling when people recognize that, so thanks! Sometimes it's fun to take a risk - like Burn It Down, for example. That's probably not my most polished or greatest remix, but it felt like I was doing something a bit crazy and different, and that was fun!

      Regarding Free - you know what, I'm actually quite tempted to make it available for download. The only reason I'm slightly hesitant is because it was a remix I made for the official Twin Atlantic remix contest over on Indaba Music, and I was a bit concerned about copyright infringement, so I played it safe and turned the download link off. However, since you like it so much, please find a link to the remix below. You should be able to just do a Right-Click, Save As... to download it - any problems downloading it, just let me know!

      Right now, I don't have any remixes on the go, as I'm quite busy doing some production/engineering work for some local musicians and bands in my area. However, I'll definitely be finding time over the coming weeks and months to work on some new remixes, as it's a lot of fun to do, and it always pushes me and challenges me!

      Thanks again for your kinds words, that means a lot and it's great to hear from someone who's so enthusiastic about the music I'm putting out, so I appreciate that. I look forward to hearing your feedback in future on any new remixes I put up on Soundcloud! :D

      Michael

      Got the album and the first thing I did was put the album into my stereo with the biggest and loudest speakers I could find. One word to describe it would be... eargasm. Lost in the Echo sounds truly amazing. The bass overjoyed me

      Victimized was a bit hazy to me on my first listen. It definitely wasn't what I'd expected, judging by what some of the reviewers thought about it. Seriously, they were a bit overreactive saying that it was a surprise. But after many listens, I started to enjoy it more, citing it as more of a small but hardcore bridge to dedicate to Nu-metal fans who demand for them to return to their roots or to show the halfway point of the album rather than an actual song. Definitely one of my favourites though - my first listen was a major "What the fuck?" moment while at least six listens later, I was bopping my head like a maniac.

      Lost in the Echo gave me a whole experience of nostalgia. The chorus is so HT-like, I just can't get over how amazing of a track it is. A Top 3 LP song for me. I decided today that I'd put Living Things ahead of Hybrid Theory as I hadn't liked an album as quick as I did with LT. Meteora still remains my favourite because every song is full of brilliance while Burn it Down let the album down by a slight margin to make it my second favourite album

      I'm currently listening to the album for the seventh time today. I will never get sick of it. It's incredible. Lost in the Echo, Victimized, Powerless, Skin to Bone and Castle of Glass are my favourites. Burn it Down is my least favourite

      I still enjoy Meteora enough to remain my favourite and currently debating whether this album is better than Hybrid Theory.

      Have you heard the 50-second preview for Powerless? Sounds really good. Combining this with the live version of Tinfoil, it seems legitimate since Powerless has an added piano track to it. In fact, I can't stand the wait for this album anymore. I wish the leaks would come earlier

      I like the live version of Lies Greed Misery. That moment when Mike has finished singing and whips out his guitar and starts strumming to the chorus is awesome and badass. Burn it Down had sappy lyrics really. I still enjoyed it but I have to say that Burn it Down by Avenged Sevenfold is miles better than Burn it Down by Linkin Park. The snippets we've got so far sound pretty good. I'd have to say my favourite would be I'll Be Gone but Lost in the Echo makes me jump and energetic. Which is what I like about LP. They certainly can get me up off my feet and make me jump. In My Remains still sounds pretty good even though its my least favourite snippet, and the Powerless snippet, unless it's fake, is amazing.

      Hopefully Living Things can shape up to be just as much as an amazing album as HT or Meteora. If not, at least M2M. Lies Greed Misery has already made it in my Top 20 particularly for the fact that it has the same kind of energy as a few songs on Meteora, includes some awesome rapping from Mike Shinoda (I didn't enjoy his rapping in ATS because he sounded somewhat Jamaican), has a catchy chorus and concludes with amazing screaming from Chester. Burn it Down is however "meh"

      Sound wise, Meteora easily takes the cake. Lyrics wise, however, I'm currently debating. A Thousand Suns does have pretty outstanding lyrics but the first two were pretty good too. I agree on that ATS lacks in having the replay ability. The first time I heard it, I thought the album was utter crap and no matter how much I listened to it, I could never get into it. About a month ago, I actually bought the album out of the blue and listened to it alone in my car, where I realized that I hadn't actually listened to the album from the beginning to the end. Suddenly, I had this kind of feeling that the band had matured, same as I did. Listening to the album from start to finish had made me feel much better about the album, even though I'd still consider it to be their worst album. I have to say the one main reason I don't like it is for the fact that they excluded guitars for most of the album which is what makes me so pumped for the previous albums.

      Nice to hear that. Meteora is awesome. There are not words on this earth to express how much I love the album. If I was in a house fire and I could choose one item, it'd be that album because it's brilliant from start to finish and I will never get sick of it. Hybrid Theory is awesome too. I love all songs and could never get sick of them. Minutes to Midnight was pretty good and A Thousand Suns, even though it's still alright, was their worst because it was missing the oomph or the energy that LP offered for their first two albums. I'm too afraid to say that here though, I'm surprised at the amount of ATS fans on this forum.
