kinda off topic, but is the pre order option on lp's official site over? I tried to preorder now and it said something like "we can't ship you're order to your country"...although the preorder thing is worldwide. kinda sucks..

Really love the new album, it's the perfect blend of everything LP are good at. At the moment, Roads Untravelled is my favourite song, which is strange because I usually prefer the more 'energetic' stuff. Can't fault any of it though really.
I'm listening to ATS again as I type this though, and I'm struggling to work out what album I prefer. From start to finish, or as an 'experience', I don't think LT beats ATS, but as a collection of individual songs, perhaps it does. I can see myself listening to individual songs as and when I feel like it from LT, but if I were to sit down and listen to one from start to finish, I think ATS clinches it. That's fine though, since they were evidently created for different purposes.
Anyways, I'm looking forward to hearing some of the new songs live - particularly Until it Breaks, I'm wondering if Brad will actually sing on his own or whether it'll be a gang vocal with him layered behind Mike and Chester... I'd definitely like to hear him make his solo vocal debut
Am I alone thinking Victimized sounds like Behind Your Lies/Qwerty? Mike's rapping voice is basically identical between the songs and Chester's screaming chorus is also similar.
But in the end we were meant to be apart, like separate chambers of the human heart...

Formerly known as Epiksha.
Does anybody feel like the reviews that are out describe the songs in a way that neglects their heavy edge and makes them sound like all light and electronicy?
That is why i don't like much of ATS live. Blackout is a perfect example. Such a dynamic song but during the live performances all but Chester are behind keyboards (and drums).
From the reviews i have read people undersell the the epicness of ROADS UNTRAVELED or not even mention it. It feels like an epic 6+ minute ballad from the early 70's wrapped unto 3:50. I do think that is the best song on the album (in close contention with IN MY REMAINS).
Maybe I'm listening to a different song but I don't see how one could compare Roads Untraveled to an early 70s ballad. Heck, it doesn't even sound like folk.
Edit: I can see how Castle of Glass *might* get some influence from folk or Americana (the tempo sounds Dylan-y and the lyrics are "bayou"), but apart from that I don't see it here either.

The Catalyst is one of few songs that makes me cry; true story.
LOST IN THE ECHO is gonna be a massive hit, I can see it coming!
For those who are asking some good bass work, you've got to listen carefully the 2nd verse of In My Remains. Good job from Phoenix.
I just listened to LITE.
If the rest of the album is this good, we'll be in for a treat.
Also, I cheated and skipped to Victimized for only about 5 seconds.
I. Am. So. Excited. For. This. Album.
