These are the reasons I am not excited for the album. 1. It has been described as "Rap'n'Roll" which might not exactly be "Nu-Metal" but it's too close to that label to bring me comfort. 2. Shorter songs in 3-4 minute limits. Yes, short songs can be good but I just feel that they're making "Fast Food" music, which I think Burn It Down is. It's good but extremely forgettable. 3.The first two tracks have been described as extremely familiar to their "Nu-Metal" days. 4. Though titles do not dictate how a song sounds, it doesn't stop me from being terribly apprehensive about it. 5. Bleed it Down's lyrics and Meteora-ish in the chorus. It's cheesy. There are other songs that use very similar concepts and words but aren't as embarrassingly terrible as Burn it Down's chorus. Ex. Arcade Fire - Rococo, The Shins - Pariah King. 6. Compact songs, easier to digest? Why can't they make compact songs that are still extremely experimental? Any many more reasons as to why I am just not feeling it. Btw. For those who say those hoping for another ATS are hypocrites. No. To want another ATS is to want another album that pushes the band and sees them return to experimentation. Not to sound like a carbon copy of ATS. At least that's what I mean personally when I say I want another album like that. Because even if there were an ATS PT 2, it wouldn't sound like ATS at all.
