    The supposed Track times have made their way online at the Tower, Japan online store. No matter how legit this seems, we'll keep an eye out for a more official source. Please be aware the listed 52:35 running time in the article is inclusive of the Japan Bonus Track, the actual album length is listed below.

    Running Time: 47:41

    01. The Requiem [2:01]
    02. The Radiance [0:57]
    03. Burning in the Skies [4:13]
    04. Empty Spaces [0:18]
    05. When They Come for Me [4:53]
    06. Robot Boy [4:28]
    07. Jornada del Muerto [1:34]
    08. Waiting for the End [3:51]
    09. Blackout [4:39]
    10. Wretches and Kings [4:10]
    11. Wisdom, Justice, and Love [1:38]
    12. Iridescent [4:56]

    With the way the album's been described, these track lengths seem perfect. I'm okay with the fact that it's 15 tracks and not 60+ minutes because from Ana's review, it already sounds like we're getting a myriad of new sounds from LP.

    Assuming these are at all accurate, and assuming the tracks that are around two minutes or less are supposed to be interludes and so on, nine or ten songs that clock in at nearly 50 minutes by themselves isn't bad going.

    I think The Requiem + The Radiance sound like one song

    Yeah, seems about right. Somewhere between 50-55mins. Really excited to hear the album.

    I was only expecting an intro, and possibly one interlude, but it's okay.

    What's interesting is the ATS Pre-Listening reviews. They really don't match these track times, I think some people were getting lost and couldn't quite tell when tracks changed maybe. Either that or these are wrong, but I think these are about there in terms of being legit. :lol:

    The album will sound incredible as a whole. But for on the go purposes, I'm a little down about there only being 9 whole songs. It's actually not that big of deal. Just different I guess. Structurally, this looks similar to Reanimation with interludes here and there and extra long songs. Just not as many songs as Reanimation.

    Sorry to kill the hype but, really? 5 tracks are below the 2-minute mark and The Requiem is 2.01.

    That leaves us with only 9 "long" tracks, I know the lenghts are longer than the average LP song, but all their previous albums had 12 songs. I hope all the songs are worth it.

    People did say the album is about 50 minutes, and if this is right..it's 52 minutes. Sure it's disappointing to have an 18 second track, but considering the 'whole' songs are longer than typical LP, I'd say that's rewarding. This is 5-10 minutes longer than Hybrid Theory, and that album was perfect length.

    52:35 (+ 4:22 Remix of No Brains) is by far the longest studio album so far. Its amazing

    I was thinking of maybe 47 minutes without the remix after all the comments from the band, so 52 is really nice!

    HT =

    37 min 52 s

    I think its legit. And if so, I'm really excited about this, I think listening to the album as a whole, the interludes will be a great fit

    I Lipkes on the Watch when it started and ended.


    And yes I totally got confused with the 0:18 track, that was the one with the African - bush-traditional-warsongs.

    The thing is that a lot of LP fans aren't the type of people that listen to whole albums. From what I can tell, there aren't going to be any songs that sound like "singles." Heck, TC doesn't sound like one. A lot of fans are not going to like this. This may be the new thing to hate on. We will get stuff like:

    "OMG LP iz so dumb they had leik 3 years and they only haz 9 SONGS!?!?!"

    the 9 songs still total up to about 40 minutes by themselves.. the fillers could be just there to link the full length songs together more than anything else
