    GOD TIER (SS TIER)
    "I'll Be Gone"
    "Powerless" + "Tinfoil" (together or apart)
    "Victimized"

    S TIER
    "Castle Of Glass"
    "Lost In The Echo"
    "Roads Untraveled"
    "Until It Breaks"

    A TIER
    "In My Remains"
    "Lies Greed Misery"

    B TIER
    "Burn It Down"
    "Skin To Bone"

    I probably would say "Living Things" is my favourite Linkin Park album at the moment

    GOD TIER
    Castle Of Glass
    Tinfoil/Powerless (It only sounds complete as a whole)
    Roads Untraveld

    S TIER

    I don't think there is any bad song on this record. Until it breaks needed some time to grow on me, but I really like it now, still i is not as good as the other ones.

    No, you may have as many or as few in any tier as you like. The goal here is to give each track a proper rating, not a rating defined by its location in the standings as one would have to do in a "top tracks" or "organize them by favorite to least favorite" type rating system. We've seen people post almost all the songs as God Tier and we've seen some people post none of the songs as god tier. Our hope is to turn your subjective responses into a statistically reliable metric of some sort.

    Years later I still can't find one thing redeeming about that song.

    I used to hate LOATR and SOAD just as much but they grew on me as I got older. Robot Boy is just...ugh.

    My other "F tier" songs will probably piss some members off though. Can't wait til we get to M2M and ATS lmao.

    I personally cannot believe people hate Until It Breaks. That has to be one of the finest songs this band has ever put out. Mike's skill has surpassed every album in one song

    I think if you're coming from the place where the track requires lyrical amazingness and hoop jumping to the sort that Mike does in UiB then yeah, Robot Boy does not make that mark. I find Robot Boy to be more akin to lyrical poetry beautifully performed. Is it a god tier song by my estimation? No, but I'd probably put Robot Boy in my A tier.

    I'm surprised this didn't come sooner.

    A tier list doesn't require you to have something in all tiers, especially in the context of an album.

    Anyways, I'm adding in the new entries right now, but I think we're at a point where the tiers are pretty well solidified. You can keep adding posts and I'll still work them in however. Just a little note that we'll be working on presenting this information in fun ways from this point forward.

    Fair enough, I see your points. I've seen some people fill up to C TIER and not F, which for me seems reasonable.

    My idea was that if EVERYONE put all songs in the GOD and S TIERS only, then that's suggesting that they love almost all the tracks equally and that no song is better than the other. Of course, opinions be opinions, but surely loving all songs equally is not possible? If Roads Untraveled and Lost in the Echo is in GOD and Lies Greed Misery is S, then does that mean LGM is almost as good as the former?

    Anyways, you got the system, and I've never made a tier list in my life, so these are just the rumblings of a noob. :p Good job with the list!

    Well the system is not necessarily a measurement of love. For instance I might love LITE more than Castle of Glass but that doesn't stop me from acknowledging that they're both top level songs (that does not reflect my opinion or my rankings it's just a hypothetical). So your favorites will not necessarily be at the top, you're giving a grade to the songs essentially.

    I was wondering when are we going to start the next album? No rush, and I know your still working on awesome graphics, but just wondering.

    Also, keep the awesome work up Minus and Adam!

    Minus is the guy to ask.. I'm just helping with the math and the visualization. He's done the hard work (keeping up with this thread, collecting and organizing the raw data). I don't think it'd be fair to begin work on the next album's tiers before we finished doing cool things with this data, personally. Reason being: once LPA sees the cool shit that can be done with this (new?) ranking system future threads will likely receive more input==better data.

    I will defer all questions to Adam since he answered them already. And I am satisfied with the answers given.

    I'm interested in seeing the data as well. Also in bumping this thread because the album is officially released now.

    Hey, I was thinking we could start backwards since we started with LT. so next do ATS and go backwards when we move onto the next one?


    On another note, I just wanted to see how the other tiers would turn out so I already made them
