    I like the title. I think it is meant to indicate how the music was let to freely evolve, develop and grow. Their music is often criticized as formulaic, especially earlier on. This seems to to intent to defy that.

    I didn't like the clips of Burn it Down though so far. Felt a little too bland radio pop rock to me. I like electronic influences though so hopefully hearing the full thing sucks me in better.

    At moments I'm OK with the title, at moments I can't stand it. Argh.

    I like Living Things as title, but if the album title turns out to be something completly different, I won't be too shocked.
    You know the meaning of Self-Fulfilling prophecy. Everybody makes a troll out of Mike. Instead of being angry or bored of this, he could just take and fulfill the role :D

    tracklisting tomorrow? I'm very curious, sounds strange to me...we'll get it tomorrow.

    FUCK YEAH! Living Things, daddy like. I love what this band is doing. Also, 30-second snippets of each song should be out within a few weeks.

    You know you keep saying that the song is Arcade Fire-esque :p and even though I hope that turns out to be true, no one's actually said that. Owen Pallett did the strings but we don't know how the song sounds.

    Thar was a badass blog entry by Mike! This is going to be huge. I don't really care about the album title. All I want is good music.
    Can't wait for tomorrow!
