    I'm really having a hard time deciding if I think he'll be contributing really anything vocally or not. I really enjoy his rapping, too, but.. honestly, I wouldn't care if he barely makes a sound vocally on here.

    I disagree, especially considering they don't choose the singles. While this song sounds more akin to Numb in structure, I think Mike will have more influence on this album than any other. My hope is that they try mergining the styles together effectively, e.g. Easier to Run and Somewhere I Belong.

    Well Mike will be definitely rapping on this album guys. He strictly said there's vintage/old school hip-hop influences and that they used an 808 Drum Machine (aka Beastie Boys Licensed to Ill era). Mike will be rapping on this album, and chances are his raps won't be watered down to fit the 'rock sound' anymore.

    I really hope he steps up his raps a bit. Even Fort Minor's weren't too amazing, in my opinion.

    Me too man, me too. Now that they're getting out of the whole 'rock/rap' thing, Mike no longer has to water down his lyrics to suit the LP sound (which he has admitted to doing). He now has free reign to write how he wants because they are reinventing themselves which means he's not constrained to doing one thing over another. :D

    Wasnt One Step Closer thier first single? Mike did not have a vocal part on that if I remember correctly.

    I really hope that Mike has a big part on this album. Without rap, Linkin Park would not be the same. I also hope that Mike sings a little bit on this album. Wasnt he the one singing the chorus in Believe Me? If he was, then he sounded great there, and it would be interesting to hear him sing on the album. Anyway, I really like the na na na's in the background.

    This reminds me if how they showed Mike "sing" a few of Chester's lines in the Numb video at the end. :p

    With the vintage beats it might be The Rising Tied Part II.

    I really think it's 'no no no'.

    About the lyrical improvement, though, wasn't that the purpose of Fort Minor? Wasn't he supposed to feel less restrained and free to do whatever he wanted? Again, I wasn't even very impressed with his lyrics on there.

    Lyrics are a big thing for me in music. Lyrics and vocals sometimes outweigh the actual instrumentation. I really hope they're not disappointing.

    I'm not sure if that's sarcasm or not? But, yes, it was him.

    I think Mike is doing 3 things in this song :

    Piano Intro : He's playing the intro we already know.
    Chorus : He's playing the rythm guitar.
    Last Chorus [We suppose] : He's doing background vocals

    So I quote what Brad said to Billboard :

    '' Some songs, Mike is literally moving back and forth between an acoustic guitar, an organ, an electric guitar, and singing ''

    I think one of those songs is 'What I've Done'.

    i was hoping mike rapping would be more like what he did on the fort minor mix tape we major, he had some sick rhymes on some of those songs so if he does something like that on his new album then added with the whole new sound of linkin park this would be an amazing album

    Hmm.. Yeah, I agree. The mixtape's rhymes were a lot better, I think.

    mixtapes tend to feature an emcee's better lyrics, because they water down their official release material to be more fan friendly with a mainstream audience. while mike's lyrics weren't spectacular on the rising tied, i felt they were still good. what i've always respected about mike is that he may not be the greatest lyricist, but he's great at getting his messages across with a varied vocabulary and a creative punchline here and there. the rhyming may be simplistic at time, but he can be complex if he wants to. hopefully this album will feature more of his creativity and versatility.
