    Now I can see what they mean by the album sounding organic. Love it, I'm already raring to declare this album of the year just based on that song.

    Someone mentioned it a page or 2 ago - Clean Vocals.
    I love every album before this but I hope that this keeps most of the vocals clean.
    I'm convinced as my own personal opinion that Chester is one the best Vocalist of our time. And Mike, Well I thin practice has made perfection. I love that he is singing Harmonies more, his Rapping is so clean. He has such an underrated voices but I guess thats a given when the Lead Singer of your Band is Chester.

    I really love this song. He Melodies, The music, The Lyrics. Again the have that double-whammy of a song.
    On Face Value its a good Catchy Tune.
    Need Depth - Listen to the Music Closely and Listen to the Lyrics - its all there.

    A Perfect Combination of Perfect and a bit More Perfect!

    Incredible. I think this has just the same tremendous effect that the Catalyst had!

    If you haven't yet, pull up the song on your iPhone (or whatever), plug some headphones in, play the song, and take a stroll through the nearest city. Tell me if you don't find yourself walking to the beat and LOVING the song.

    It gets better with every listen.

    Back in the day this song would've been labeled a demo and left off the album.

    Really hope the rest of the album has some nice surprises for us :)

    It's a great song, but to me it feels almost a little rushed...

    That said, apart from The Catalyst, I find the first single off a new LP album is usually the weakest one. If this is the weakest we're going to get then it's going to be a pretty outstanding album.

    Nevermind about what I said about this song. Just listened to it with headphones and OH MY GOOD LORD. MY BALLSACKS. THEY CANT HANDLE THE EPICNESS.
    This song grows on you, but seriously for anyone that hasn't listened to this with headphones yet. DO IT. It will blow your mind :WTF:

    I feel the same way about it being rushed.

    TBH it almost seemed like they were trying to get the album out there asap vs. taking their time and going over every little thing like their used too.

    Yay! :D BID sounds pretty good. Sure a bit mainstream, but it's just the lead single.
    On a sidenote I'm starting to dig the album name "Living Things" more and more.

    I loved the song but then I started feeling kinda meh about it...but I heard it now with headphones and the difference is just stunning. It's so much better with headphones, you all should try it out.

    About the music itself, it's a good song, Chester's voice is fantastic as always and Mike's rape is perfect, I just feel something is missing, probably I was waiting some heavier guitars atleast in the end of the song after the bridge, but since it didn't happen I was a little dissapointed. But it will pass and the song will grow on me again I guess.



    edit: still waiting for all the admins opinions, I always like to read your well fundamented words.

    I still feel this song is about the journey their career has been. There are lines that correspond with certain songs such as "colours conflicted as flames burned into the clouds". Meaning the black and white album arts of minutes and ats and the flames burning into clouds refers to burning in the skies. Or even refers to 9 11. So many thoughts I can't type quick enough to get out on my phone lol I'll try in morning after work

    Okay wait, this is not normal. I'm taken over. I swear to God.

    BEWARE: HIGHLY ADDICTIVE

    First I was like; what the fuck, ok song.. not that special. Now I'm freaking blown out of my mind. I just have to say it again and again, this is amazing!! Right now, I'm in the wave of high energy of the song. This is the good life! :) Wow xD

    I can agree with a lot of the pros and cons over this song.

    But, I really LOVE this song. I can't explain what it is but I can't stop playing it. I think what I love most about it is that it makes me feel like its a build up for something fucking epic on the upcoming album. Can't wait until June! :awesome:
