    I'll go ahead and say it, I think Final Masquerade is a top 5 song in Linkin Park's entire fucking discography.

    I have to agree with Astat. There's something about the song that just grips you and from the moment Chester sings "Tearing me apart..." it just all clicks and takes you on a journey. It's not often a standard 3 minute song can do that and I'm not sure why FM has done it, but it did. It's truly a moment when it all comes together. Also the tour de force from Chester helps tremendously.

    Truth.

    I started complaining in the other thread about people whining about LP and their "poppy radio singles", and FM is both very pop accessible, completely radio friendly, and oh shit, looky there; it's fucking stellar.

    Funny how that happens.

    Well , i would say that i love this song too because of this. Maybe i sound yet a bit whiny bt everytime the chorus drops i think there are some tears in my eyes. This song moving me in different ways.

    I feel like this video is going to be slightly reminiscent of the What I've Done music video, given the nature of the song and especially considering that second picture with Rob's drum set being in a desert-like area.

    Agreed 100%. I'm glad FM will have a music video, it's by far my favorite from THP

    I hope this music video takes a different direction. I'm not really into their latest videos. last good one was "Castle of Glass".

    Mark Pellington (the person directing the video) said on twitter: edit for Linkin Park very soon. Looks amazing.

    I agree with you. It's a very beautiful song. The emotion in Chester's voice alone is just so excellent.

    I haven't watched enough of Pellington's videos to be disappointed by any, so let's just assume that it will be.

    Hell, a director that isn't Joe Hahn should guarantee something refreshingly different at the very least

    Yeah, but I'm excited nonetheless about what might happen when LP works with a different video director. :)

    Pellington's freaking hyped about this video, guys.

    This makes me hyped as well.
