Mike himself allowed Joe to release the song publicly at LPA. It was on today's BBC show.
Gotcha. I was just curious
I've been lurking on this forum for years but never felt the need to post. But this deserves a huge thanks. So thanks a bunch for posting this Joe, and thanks for being there to make this happen.
No doubt, it's funny since they said POWERLESS was originally almost 7 minutes long and it just got boring, all the songs that are 5-6 minutes work. TLTGYA and The Catalyst come to mind. 3:30-4:00 LP songs are generally the best imo.
Is it possible to get the flac version of this song on the iPhone?
Oh god this high quality is giving me the biggest ladyboner. I don't even care about the screams at the end anymore.
I'm deaf now due to the sequential eargasms. Thanks Linkin Park.
Well, I wouldn't worry too much about it. The FLAC is nice to have because it's the uncompressed, original version from the album. The MP3 is compressed, but having done a blind test (I put on my nice headphones, set up the two versions side by side in my music software, and looped 5 second sections of the track, switching back and forth with my eyes closed), I can tell you the difference is almost always negligible. Occasionally the FLAC has the tiniest bit more clarity, especially in the phasey/flanger sound at the start. So don't worry if you can't tell the difference - FLAC is a really cool gift to have from Mike, but most people won't hear the difference between FLAC and 320kbps MP3 in loud, modern music. If it was classical or jazz, you'd hear the difference more in the quieter, dynamic sections. Hope that makes sense.
I think Linkin Park should be given their own official genre.
Afraid not, man. iPhone's don't support it I don't think. I just listen to the flac version at home, and the 320kbps MP3 on my iPhone
Hot damn thank you. I will listen to this as soon as I am not on a work computer.
thanks for your answer
Most humans can't recognize a difference between lossless audio and a 320 kbit/s mp3
If you are older then 25 your chances are even worse :-D
yay Chester's screaming and Mike's old school rapping is back!!!! Although this is like a 2 minute song, its worth it...Mike said the album will "fuck us in the face".....so far this song did good lol
While it doesn't support FLAC, the iPhone DOES support M4A Apple Lossless. You could easily find a converter online that converts FLAC to Apple Lossless. If you have a Mac, XLD is one of the better ones. Basically Apple Lossless is the same as FLAC only encoded slightly different. File sizes are about the same.
if Mike gave us the ok and Warner not having a say, can it be posted on youtube without Warner taking it down?
alright, I've got a Macbook thank you very much for this answer.
mike said : warner won't take it down. But I think, we should upload it with the name that joe "gave" the song.
Did Mike say this in an interview?
While I'm still making up my mind about the song, I do want to thank Joe and every person who makes releases like this happen. The quality content that I've seen presented by the LPA in my membership that begin in 2003 is unmatched. Thanks to all of you at the LPA. Also, thanks to Mr. Shinoda, Linkin Park & LPHQ for a fantastic scavenger hunt.
well somebody needs to upload it! =D lol this song blows my mind away every listen!
