    A new article posted by The New Straits Times Online regarding the listening party for Minutes To Midnight, has divulged some information that may prove interesting for Linkin Park fans. When discussing the tight security and length of time they were kept inside the room (they were not allowed to leave in fear they may come back in with a recording device) the NST had this to say:

    "Having left all their belongings outside the ballroom, the Press was then provided with a pencil and notepad each. And once the session started, no one was allowed to step out of the ballroom, not even for a toilet break. It was only after all the 12 songs from the album had been previewed, 90 minutes later, that guests were allowed to retrieve their belongings."

    Shall this quote hold true, it would mean that this Linkin Park album is officially longer than Reanimation and Meteora, and is one of Linkin Park's most lengthly works to date.

    Of course it is not known how long they were in the room before the album was premiered, so all album length rumors should be kept as purely speculation at this time.

    It's not clear whether or not they played it immediately when they came in. Still even if its a 70 minute album thats still much longer than Hybrid Theory and Meteora.

    You gotta figure, even if this album is 60-70 minutes long (say they had a 20 min long speech) that means the songs average out to about 5 1/2 minutes with TLTGYA being 6 minutes or more.

    Wow!

    I dont think the CD is actually 90 minutes long, I mean, you dont know how much time the people were just in there chatting or just talking about the album or whatever. Or maybe this person was just merely estimating. I would like the album to be an hour and a half, but i doubt it. LOL. ^_^

    Sad thing is, even if they played it twice (45 Min album), thats still longer than Meteora and Hybrid Theory. :lol:

    They could have stopped after each track to have a brief discussion about it?

    Kewl. I'm pretty sure they were held in there for a while before they started listening to the album. I'm suspecting that it'll be 45 minutes long. 50 to an hour is pushing it, in my opinion.

    LOL. 90 minutes.

    They were probably in there for a full hour before they started playing the album.

    Anyone who thinks this album is 90 minutes is on crack. I'm sorry. :lol:

    I'm making a prediction and saying the album is 47 minutes.

    Yes I think there was a break between each track, maybe to have time to take some notes about they've just listened.

    Anyway, I'm convinced that M2M is just longer than HT and Meteora, maybe 10min longer ??

    I'd have been happy if it was 35 minutes or more. But 90 minutes, WOW! Though this isn't official, but I bet that the album'll easily exceed 45 minutes^^

    although after meteora Id already accepted that Linkin Park is a fan of short and sweet

    It wont be 90 minutes, thats why I put the note in the news post.

    To me, perfect runtime would be 50-55 minutes. Reanimation was too long so I don't want it Reanimation length.
