I said, "Mike, I'm coming for you, homie"
Cause Mike's always got my back when I'm lonely
And I always got his back when we fight
I'm coming for you, Mike, Imma save your life

The last couple of pages if this thread has been pure unadulterated win.
HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED PICTUREBOARD YET?
The cycle repeated as explosions broke in the sky
all that I needed was the one thing I couldn't find
And you were there at the turn waiting to let me know
We're building it up to break it back down
We're building it up to burn it down
We can't wait to burn it to the ground
The colors conflicted as the flames climbed into the clouds
I wanted to fix this but couldn't stop from tearing it down
And you were there at the turn caught in the burning glow
And I was there at the turn waiting to let you know
You told me yes you held me high And I believed when you told that lie
I played that soldier you played king And struck me down when I kissed that ring
You lost that right to hold that crown I built you up but you let me down
so when you fall I'll take my turn and fan the flames as your blazes burn
...So anyways Burn It Down is quite a song eh?
The more I listen to this, I think vocally this is the best Chester has sounded in several albums. It gives me high hopes for the rest of the record in the vocal department.
When "A Thousand Suns" came out, people were all "oh, I could've made that interlude in five minutes" -- and, yes, it's pretty easy to make that stuff when someone else has already taken the time and effort to come up with the idea.
Same thing here; some of you people complaining are all "I could make 'Burn It Down' in GarageBand right now so no effort was put into this song!" - and, of course, you can remake the track. It'd be pretty easy for you as well, because Linkin Park have already laid down the groundwork for you. They came up with the rhythms, timbres, progressions, melodies and lyrics, and picked out the musical expressions - every detail in the song - which you would need to emulate in order to make something reasonably close to the track.
Not a whole lot of musicians really aim to make music that no-one else will ever be able to play. ;" Some of us here could claim to be able to perform songs by The Beatles better than how The Beatles did back in the day. It doesn't take away from them at all.
What doesn't make sense to me is why they don't just use electric guitar instead of the distorted bass they use in the chorus. It sounds like distorted electric guitar but synthetic, and Linkin Park has a guitarist, and electric guitar SOUNDS better than the synthetic distortion. It is as if they are TRYING not to use guitar even when they WANT that distorted sound. These guys still like metal, they just think they have to separate themselves from their past, and apparently not using a guitar is one way of doing that.

How disgusting reading someone go so low because of a music argument. He didn't have a valid one anyway.
Well. There's not much I can add to the discussion, but regarding the live/electronic settings, I gotta say EVERY instrument -whether organic or not- requires a certain level of ABILITY for being properly played and a massive amount of CREATIVITY to make something genius come out of it. It's really underappreciating saying that just because Linkin Park uses synthed instrumentation, whether it is real electronic equipment or layering effects on top of the live instrument, it's lazy or less creative than doing it all live. Who fucking knows? People with massive experience on playing normal-organic music could get lost working with all the crazy shit LP experiments with.
Nobody can argue about Chester's voice, it's sublime, and I could say everyone here agrees with it, the "problem" comes with the "guitarz" and "drumz". If it's electronic drums, how much of different it is to play an electronic kit than a real one? Unless it's all buttons like one of Mr. Hahn's consoles, it's pretty much the same thing, and you could get some really diverse stuff out of it.
And about the guitars, is it strange for people now that effects can be layered over the guitar? Isn't that what pedals and filters and shit have done for the past -insert pedal age here- years? All I hear in BID is some very crunchy, thick, and badass sound coming out of the guitar, it's not astronomically out of normal distortion there.
The mix LP has done for this song is very well balanced to me and it does merge the new and old elements in their
I could justify Linkin Park lessening their use of heavy guitar riffs simply by stating that every rock band out does that already.
