    I think it would be cool for Shinoda to do some kind of live performance for a song that sounds like this

    It's a daring move from Mike to release a full-on rock song. This is definitely a more LP-sounding track than everything Mike has released after 2017... and this might generate more comparison between him and Chester "in the mainstream".

    The song is fun and catchy, probably has been over-teased, unless it's part of a bigger scheme (which I hope for).

    Also, it's pretty damn cool Mike wrote and performed every single instrument/sound on this (including drums!).

    The song is decent. I think my main sticking point is the polish on the song. It's too polished to sound like, say, a DIY rock band. But it's not polished enough to sound like a, well, Mike Shinoda track. So it's in a weird middle ground.

    That aside, I like the melody of the song and the lyrics.

    Things I like:
    • The melody
    • The catchiness
    • Mikes singing
    • The instrumental
    • That it's way more rock-y than most of the stuff Mike has been involved in since after The Hunting Party
    Things I don't like:
    • It doesn't have a real bridge
    • It's a bit short, could have fixed that with a proper bridge...

    Definitely one of Mike's heaviest solo tracks, if not the most heavy one he's done. I think the song is okay. I do however really like the harmonizing in the bridge-ey part

    Maybe it will grow on me but ultimately I feel almost the same as when In My Head released. a bit of neat things goin on in it but is just an okay song overall.
