    My Review... (like it matters lol)
    1. The Requiem- Definitely an eerie intro. Probably the best LP album intro IMO. 10/10
    2. The Radiance- Um... ok? Just a dude talking lol. Don't know why it's there. But then again I didn't listen to what he was saying. 5/10
    3. Burning in the Skies- It was good. Wasn't epic, but definitely a good slow song. Reminds me of "In Pieces." 7/10
    4. Empty Spaces- A great little snippet of just noises. Felt like I was in a warzone! 9/10
    5. When They Come for Me- Probably my second favorite song on the album! Epic rapping from Mike! Love the mentioning of the "old LP come back" people. 9/10
    6. Robot Boy- The most shocking song on the album to me. It was beautiful! 8/10
    7. Jornada del Muerto- Awesome that Mike was singing in Japanese! 8/10
    8. Waiting for the End- My favorite song on the album! Reminds me of "Leave out all the rest" I love the way the chorus just jumps in! 10/10
    9. Blackout- Pretty good song! Had that Reanimation feel to a song that Chester is screaming like he's lost his mind! And the ending to it was a weird shift, but worked well IMO. 8/10
    10. Wretches and Kings- we all know it. 9/10
    11. Wisdom, Justice, and Love- Awesome how they took the speech and turned him into a robot. And in the eeriest way possible! 8/10
    12. Iridescent- Beautiful song! Mike and Chester did really well with this song! 9/10
    13. Fallout- Haven't heard it yet...
    14. The Catalyst- yeah. 7/10
    15. The Messenger- Really a great, beautiful song! Don't know why it's hated! Chester's raw emotion just flows through this song. 9/10

    Entire album gets a 8/10 because it kinda sucks that there's only 9 full songs, but those songs definitely make up for it! Amazing work by LP!

    Robot Boy is amazing. It's too early for me to make a list of favorites but that is on the short list..... that I'm not making.

    Hmm, well after three listens, I'm gonna try to rate the 9 main songs by my favorite...

    1. Iridescent - I have no idea why, I just really love this track, really uplifting!
    2. Waiting For The End - Loved this song since we could first hear it this morning.
    3. Wretches and Kings - Some old-school lyrics from Mike, really like the feel of the song.
    4. Blackout - Holy cow this track is crazy. The second part caught me off guard at first but now I quite like it.
    5. When They Come For Me - Awesome beat, love Mike's rapping and the chorus. This song will be a monster live.
    6. The Catalyst - Enough said really.
    7. The Messenger - A tad oversung, I have to agree. But for the most part I love the vocals.
    8. Burning in the Skies - I like it, but that's really about all.
    9. Robot Boy - The only song I'm kinda "meh" about really. It's gotten better with repeated listens though.

    192 kb/s here. Not bad. Could be better, but definitely acceptable.

    OMG I AM LISTENING TO REQUIM AS WE SPEAK. Soooo exciting. And it sounds awesome. Btw, wtf @ the guy who said that the distorted voice in the intro sounded like Justin Bieber. Terrible comparison.

    Burning In the Skies leaves a weird taste in my mouth. Some parts are like...this is cool, others are like...ahhh, I don't know. Whatever "chorus" it has is weak.

    When They Come For Me is playing now. Sounds sweet so far.

    Edit: Sorry for double post :(

    My first impressions of the album. Did with purpose leave the requiem and some other fill outs.

    Burning in the skies

    + The blending of the voices works very well
    + Great melody
    + Awesome guitar part

    8/10

    When They Come For Me

    + The drumming really gives a cool wall of bashing
    + Mikes verses
    + Points of Authority shootout
    + Never heard something like this before, this musical image is awesome, a oriental feel

    9/10

    Robot boy

    - Did not like this, can't really say what but the song did not catch me at all

    3/10

    Jornada Del Muerto

    + Great interlude
    + Great synth

    0/0

    Waiting for the end

    + The chorus (if you can call it that)
    + The buildup in the end

    - Not a fan of the reggae style rapping

    6/10

    Blackout

    + Chester really blows me off, awesome singing and screams
    + Mikes singing - also awesome
    + Enjoying the

    - A bit to much digital rending of the chesters blackout thing

    8/10

    Wretchers and kings

    + I think the speech really fits the song well, a tone of desperation and build up in the end thanks to that
    + Mikes rapping
    + Chesters chorus help build up a sense of desperation imagery and really aggressive without being metal
    + The beat is AWESOME, so hard and aggressive but not in a way i heard it from Linkin Park.
    + Joes scratching is damn epic, really good

    10/10

    Iridescent

    + Mikes and Chesters singing, great duet singing
    + The guitar fits the song well
    + Band singing works!

    7/10

    The catalyst

    + Both Mikes and Chesters vocals are great
    + The synth works even if it could be something from Eurovision song contest

    - Way to repetive

    8/10

    The messenger

    + It works
    - I think Chester pushed it to hard, it is a balance between beauty and terror at the high edge tones

    7/10

    Summery

    Lived up to my hype, did not expect something like this. It has taken the throne of the best Linkin Park album to date for me.

    Total 8/10
