    I understand you have issues with Meteora, that's very clear to me. But Breaking The Habit as well? That's a very unique song not only by Meteora's standards, but by the nu-metal standard in general.

    I don't know what you're talking about. What's a Meteora? What's a Breaking The Habit?

    It sounds like a whole bunch of whining and lyrical boredom, if you ask me.

    Boring? The song has a lot of emotional depth and substance to it, bounds more than any other song on the album. To each their own I suppose, but even I have a hard time tying down BTH to the same quality as the rest of that album.

    If there was hypothetically a track named Breaking The Habit, I'm sure an instrumental version without whiny lyrics and some glitch influence would be far superior.

    Understandable. Drawing is a fine instrumental, I wouldn't discredit that.

    An imaginary instrumental, but if it existed I'm sure it'd be awesome.

    I find the instrumental piece of the very exciting and better than the actual instrumental (excluding the cheap keyboard orchestral of course). I don't mind the lyrics on the actual.

    I wonder what kind of lyrics would be on such a track, if it existed? I'd imagine they'd suck.

    I should listen to Drawing again sometime... It's been ages since I've touched LPU9. And years since I touched the album that does not exist.

    If it existed, I could safely say I listened to it recently. It was pretty sick for being nonexistent.

    You're not gonna give this up are you? :p

    Although I do agree, Drawing is much more pleasant to listen to than Breaking the Habit. I'm not a fan of the chorus. Although I do enjoy the second verse

    I can only think of QWERTY, the live version they played to me is better than the original. QWERTY didn't make it to an album anyway but still.

    Thats not really a demo though. I don't think a demo for QWERTY has been released/leaked

    Why not? It's definitely an earlier version of the song and at some point there must've been a recording for them to work on and get the final product. Just because it's not studio doesn't mean it can't be a demo :huh:

    Those were recorded after the EP, so it would make sense that they're superior. :)

    I could say the same to all you people insisting that there was an LP album released in 2003. I mean shit, I know the break between HT and MTM were long, but that's no reason to make up completely fictional albums.
