    This album will probably be their best, It's a shame, their possible best album has the worst title.

    I do like the title, it grew on me and I like it but i still think it is their worst title

    I wasn't really a fan of it. But, it's not that I didn't like it - it's more that I didn't expect something like that, and, in the same time though, I knew it was a good title. But with Living Things... I don't know.. I'm still waiting for the band to explain it.

    We have to hear the music before. I personally think "Living Things" is weak but, I hold judgement till the album comes out and I hear it.

    Living Things, Lost in the Echo, Burn it Down, Castle of Glass, I'll Be gone, In My Remains.
    After all the titles are not really building a connection. Maybe a generalized kind of title was the best choice for an album that will face so many different topics. Or self named.

    It'll probably be late afternoon or evening where you live.

    My opinion: Living Things is bad, Burn It Down is corny (although I'm now used to it), but the others kick ass.

    I think In My Remains is the worst title so far, not sure that I like that one. Castle of Glass and Lost in the Echo are both amazing titles! Burn it Down is also amazing in my opinion but not as cool as the those two. I'll Be Gone sounds good but whenever I see it the chorus to WTCFM starts playing in my head.

    Funny how opinions can diverge :D In My Remains is one of my favorites so far, and I'll Be Gone is the one I like last. Others are all interesting (aside from Mr. Things).

    My opinion is that Drag Me To Hell is Sam Raimi back in his element after his Spider-Man films, and arguably his magnum opus.

    Somehow even refined, I love it. Maybe because I'm not english, the title has a fascinating appeal, almost elegant in its darkness.

    Ill Be Gone is interesting that they used that as a title because of WTCFM lyrics. But besides that fact I like it, although it would say its my second least favorite. I just think In My Reamins is a weird title especially for an LP song but it does fit the theme I think of the title Burn it Down

    Mmm is true, I didn't think on that yet. Castle of Glass could be a hint to something fragile, which might after all fit with I'll Be Gone. I didn't put much thought behind the titles yet, but you're right, there are connections.
