    Omg sounds go good!! Additionally this will be track number 20….so the question is wtf is track #14 and why haven’t they revealed it yet? What’s so secretive? Another unreleased song? Or brand new song?

    It sounds really good. It has more energy than the usual OML sound, while still being clearly from that production era. I can see why they didn't put it in the record, but I'm really glad we are getting it.

    Now, on to what the hell is track 14 if it's not Friendly Fire?

    I'll wait for the release before listening to this.

    Great to get a brand new track from their latest era now - so that we don't have to wait for a possible 20th birthday treat in 2037 :p

    I've medium expectations for it. A lot of OML songs had potential in their melody, but fell flat for me due to specific sound-design choices (the "clap clap", the "chipmunks", etc). Let's see how this one turns out.

    Definitely sounds like something from OML. But I'm gonna be honest the album has aged horribly for me, I'm more interested in hearing demos from ATS or MTM in this moment.

    I love the first "fireeeee" part, sounds like the perfect combination of the OML sound and older albums.
    Also, while I don't have a problem hearing Chester's vocals on older LP songs, hearing his voice for the first time on "new" songs somehow always hits me man...

    Sounds like Limp Bizkit. 2/10. I thought they would move on from nu metal by now, but oh well.

    If the fire were truly friendly, it wouldn't burn you at all!
