    I stand....reminded! Coincidentally, those were the very tracks that made the album for me. Including 'Get me Gone'.

    Its the full track. the only thing that will be different is the bazooka. But maybe not?! That would be a good transition...

    The track grew on me, I like it now. But I guess just because I'm a huge Drum n Bass fan, and I listen to house/techno/electronica quite often.
    Btw: i dreamed that david guetta remixed the catalyst...

    This is a edited version of the song, and a great portion of it had been edited out.
    Moreover, the single has not been released yet. There's no point to put all parts of the song in the trailer, right?:)

    Super excited! One day left~

    You aren't alone, I have restrained myself from listening to the short and full MOH trailer, I'm not gonna kill this song for myself. Having heard all these negative responses my anticipation has gone down but I believe it's for the better.

    Many people are saying that it is missing about two minutes of the track, and the way they have edited it out sounds awfull.

    So i'll just wait so i can hear the HOLE track, and dont feel like its missing somthing

    Just to clarify, I'm pretty sure this is the full track.

    Also, it's awesome. Completely different from any other single and the lyrics match the theme of the video perfectly. So many awesome transitions that all build up to an epic ending. Perfect single IMO. Great stuff.

    Yeah, when I watched the trailer, I noticed that Chester doesn't sing the full chorus, there was no "And when I close my eyes tonight..." part.
    But you know, even though I love Linkin Park, this doesn't sound so exciting to me. Maybe I heard too many snippets, but... I don't know... I feel like there's not enough beats and stuff in this version of the song... Like this is the stem itself and not final version.

    Lead singles are generally the best commercially aren't they?

    Get prepared to become Yeasayer fans everybody.

    A while back after I listened to the Leave Out All the Rest Remix and the Gold Guns Girls Remix, I had hoped that the new album would go in this direction. I can honestly say I'm pleased with this song and can't wait to hear the full thing (if there is one).

    Who knows. Maybe I'm wrong, I'm just warning people not to hang their hopes on a "longer" version that may not come.

    Oh it's still a trailer, not full (because you can't hear "when I close my eyes tonight" part from Ches). So don't complain! I believe we'll get a masterpiece tomorrow!

    It definitely isn't the full track as some parts of the lyrics posted by Mike are missing. "And when I close my eyes tonight..."

    Even though I don't think there's much more coming, they DID leave out a bit of Chester's vocals from the snippets, with the 'symphonies of blinding light'. It's a bit edited..


    EDIT: Nevermind, it's been said in this thread before.. many times. :lol:

    Yeah, I realize now. It will be interesting to see how much is missing as I heard a little rumour that the song is only 4:42 in length, and the portion after that is an interlude to the next track. I guess we'll see.

    There's lots to see.

    The distortion on vocals here and there (this type of distortion atleast)
    The techno segments.
    Pacing.
    Hollow intro.

    Not heavy enough.
    No rapping.

    List goes on.

    Mind you, I don't mind this version of the track other than the distorted " GOD BLESS US EVERYONE " that Mike bellows. It's actually a love/hate thing so far for me. At some points, I absolutely despise that part, and in other moments I find it very catchy.


    **Additional Thoughts**

    I think the backlash has been fairly common since the stems were released due to listeners hoping for a breath of fresh air in the midst of the crowded usage of auto-tune. Subsequently, whether or not Linkin Park utilized the same technique in achieving that distorted voice the fact of the matter is: to the casual listener, it's essentially " more of the same shit.. on the radio...and TV blargh blargh blargh. "
