    This.
    Anyone remember the hype I had for The Hunting Party release just because it was going to be their heaviest album they released to date? I hate that cd, their worst by far. And some of heaviest tracks (KTTK and War) are just plain awful. Heavy doesn't always mean good. This clip actually sounds legitametly good and I am excited for that.

    Linkin Park doesn't change set list based on audience.

    Only exception was the one time they play HT in full.

    I was focusing more on the 5th grade lyrics

    @Blake damn dude I remembered you were at super levels of hype for THP. You really hate the album? =/



    I personally love songs like KTTK. If I had it my way, LP wouldn't be going in a more poppy direction but if its good I don't mind it.

    Not feeling it. Not super bummed, they've gone the full blown pop route before, but still.

    Yes, I have mixed feelings about that album.

    The first half I think is the worst music they have ever written.

    But everything from Rebellion to the end I think is the best music they have ever written. I think if they tried to be more experimental throughout the whole album instead of standard Linkin Park in the first half, it could have been their best work to date.

    Her delivery of the "I know I'm not the center of the universe but you keep spinning round me just the same" lines sounded really good, imo.

    Looking forward to checking the song out tomorrow!

    i loved the guitar solo on kttk at the end, that was insane, the guitars and drums on THP really showed brad and robs full potential on display, couldnt have been any better.

    And you know this, how?

    I mean, sure, it could go either way at this point, but Heavy seems more accessable to the mainstream than the majority of THP.

    In which of her songs has kind of the reanimation/Meteora vibe, i never heard of her before so i dont anything about her.
    LP is gonna make this girl into a star now, thats why they brought her in to do a song.

    cough cough Holly Brook cough

    That said I'm with the team "this won't be a smash hit". Maybe minor hit, but historically LP have always flopped with huge pop singles. Leave Out All The Rest tanked, Iridescent was a dud, idk if you'f count Final Masquerade since that was more the classic power ballad, but there you go.

    And frankly the band's been cranking out content for 16 years. Not a ton of bands get that. Even a minor hit for them is still very good.

    This song reminds me a lot of the album '' living things ''.

    I'm a bit sad that even after 4 albums the fanbase still think that one day Linkin Park will return to play something close to HT / MT.

    My favorite album is ATS. I like the experimentation and innovation.

    I hope the new album has something like that.

    Holly Brook is Skylar Grey...she got pretty popular. But, Kiiara doesn't really need LP I don't think. She'll definitely have new fans because of this, but she was already doing quite well on her own from her hit Gold.

    Great album title! Very original

    As long as they don't go back to the LT style of all caps, it'll be good :lol:

    Personally, I think the single will be popular mainly because there is no new music right now for the industry.

    If there's one thing I'm hoping to hear in One More Light (if it is the album title), is the band continuing to experiment with sounds. I always love it when they do that.

    And no worries about your english, dude. It's good. I'm portuguese myself, by the way. :)

    LP need guitar parts that are actually good before they put them in songs.
