    This can be a vocal delivery, lyrics, an M. Shinoda verse, a guitar part, drums, a background sound, anything. I wanna know the little things that make the album for you.


    For me: All of Castle of Glass, but especially Mike on that first verse. Got me hooked right away. So folksy, I absolutely love it. Also, the way Chester says "powerless" on the second verse of that song.

    All except BID and In My Remains. :lol:

    More seriously, my highlights on first listen were:

    - entire Lost In The Echo
    - the folk melodies (COG, RU, Skin To Bones)
    - mike singing parts (which was quite surprising, since I usually prefer Chester's voice)
    - Until It Breaks rap and instrumental
    - entire Victimized

    Also, I'm still freaking enjoying Lies Greed Misery, this song never gets old for me

    - Chester's screams were amazing, possibly better than ever
    - The folk genre in Castle of Glass
    - The beat in Skin to Bone
    - Brad's vocals in Until it Breaks
    - Mike's rapping reminds me of Hybrid Theory
    - Everything

    Same here, Qwerty. I still fuckin love Lies Greed Misery. It certainly isn't the best song on the album, but it sure is an awesome little song that gets you pumped for the preceding songs.

    The vocal work in general on this album really blew me away. Rapping, singing, screaming, BRAD, so much yes.

    LINE is really the best.

    The intro of victimized sounds very similar to a rammstein song(mostly the guitar).. but forgot the name. (0:10 - 0:20)

    The whole damn album is my favorite part. I'm still trying to comprehend how amazing this really is. There really is something for fans of every LP era in here.

    But if I had to pick my favorite parts, in no particular order:

    - Lost In The Echo: the entire song
    - I'll Be Gone: the intro still blows my mind
    - Until It Breaks: Mike's rapping and Brad's vocals
    - Powerless: one of the top "ballads" they've ever put out; just beautiful
    - Skin To Bone: the beat
    - Victimized: the fact that I can't listen to the song without thinking WTF IS GOING ON HERE?!

    My favourite moments :-

    -That synth riff of Lost In The Echo.

    -"Like an Army falling, one by one by one" on "In My Remains" gave me goosebumps.

    -The HUUUGGGEE sounding chorus of I'll Be Gone.

    -Mike's voice and the guitar riff in Castle Of Glass. One of the best songs they have done yet. Return of the goosebumps. ;)

    -The "so-heavy-its-funny" chorus of Victimized! :p

    -That moment when everything stops for a moment in "Roads Untraveled", then BANG!

    -The weirdness of "Skin To Bone" and "Until It Breaks".

    -The wonderful use of the same riff in "Tinfoil" and "Powerless".

    -The BEAUTIFUL "Oooooo" backing vocals sung in the background by Mike(?) in "Powerless". Almost made me cry.

    This album is the best thing they have ever done! :D Keep rocking LP! :headbang:

    - Entire Lost In The Echo.
    - "Like an army falling one by one by one" in In My Remains.
    - The first verse of I'll Be Gone is amazing.
    - Entire Castle of Glass.
    - The chorus of Victimized.
    - The funny piano beginning of Roads Untraveled.
    - Entire Skin to Bone.
    - Mike's rap in verse 1 and Brad singing.
    - Tinfoil and Powerless are great.

    - Possibly my favourite 'ballad' LP track since The Messenger: 'Roads Untravelled' the 'woah' bit and Mike and Chester's harmonising, in particular.
    - The whole of 'Castle of Glass' it's so typically Linkin Park with elements that you would never associate with them.
    - The short but not at all sweet 'Victimized'
    - The crazy synth and vocal alterations on 'Skin to Bone'
    - Tinfoil/ Powerless

    I think I must be the only one that doesn't find Lost in the Echo to be the best track. It's good, just not the best. The synth/ riff is cool though. As is Mike's rap. I think the chorus is a little weak.

    - Lost in the Echo... all of it really.
    - Like an army... Falling... One by one by one... beautiful
    - Imma be that nnnnail in your coffin xD + Screams on LGM
    - I'll be gone's Chorus is amazing!(Can't hear the strings so much?)
    - The lyrics on Castle of Glass is amazing(i just find the song alittle boring)
    - Victimized.... Holy Sh*t, not as heavy as expected, but very unique
    - Roads untraveled - lyrics on second verse cut me open
    - Until it breaks! Wow, so different than what i throught! XD Awesome rap, Amazing singing + BRAD FUCKING DELSON ON VOCALS - Sounds so much like Queen
    - Powerless, loving the verses and the nice build up intro.

    I love the fact that even though there are only 12 tracks on this record, all the tastefully done direction changes and face-smacking beats that really beat my sternum and make me feel like I'm being held down against my will, it feels like there's about 20 songs on this album.

    Insanity.

    Some highlights for me are:

    - The entirety of LITE, as it harkens back to early LP and really pulls you into the album from the get-go
    - "Like an army falling, one by one by one"
    - The first verse and chorus of COG
    - The entirety of Roads Untraveled, especially the latter half of Chester's verse
    - The fitting closer that is Powerless, even though it didn't blow me away completely

    In no particular order:

    1) Mike's raps on Lost In The Echo. I haven't liked a rap verse from him that much since Bleed It Out.

    2) The chorus of In My Remains. One early review said it was like an anthem for the end of days. It really does feel that way, possibly even more epic than The Catalyst.

    3) The harmonizing on Castle of Glass. When Mike and Chester harmonize the word "see" at the end of each chorus, it gives me chills.

    4) The flow from Tinfoil to Powerless.

    5) Mike's first verse from Victimized. The rap verse is cool too, but I love that western verse he does first.

    6) Roads Untraveled...beautiful song.

    7) The strings in I'll Be Gone really do add a lot to the song.

    Those are the first things that came to mind.

    - In My Remains: the intro, the chorus, and the best thing is the way Mike's "like an army, falling one by one" is combined with "one by one" in the background. brilliant
    - Castle of Glass: the whole beat of the song, and changing between Mike and Chester
    - Powerless: chorus and Mike's singing part at the end

    there are many great moments but these stand out
