    I don't see why people care so much. They are putting something out to make some money for people in need. As long as people donate it doesn't matter how good the music is on the CD.

    Plus, the instrumental is definitely not poorly made. It's just a basic lull you to sleep song with a strong ending. There's plenty of stuff worse than this. At least it's soothing.

    Travz nailed it. Its for charity. Who gives a fuck if its good or not. Whether or not someone pays 10 shouldn't depend on if the song is good. The donation should be done based on goodwill.

    Linkin Parks donation to Japan will be remembered. This song will probably not be. But who cares its a Charity Cause, Not LPs next big album.

    I myself enjoyed it a lot. A very ambient track, and the "ahhs" at the end give it a nice touch. It would be nice to see some sort of lyrics added to the track, but I feel it holds its own nonetheless.

    As far as some of the comments I read, it would be nice to hear some kind of real explanation other than "meh" or "yawn". The track was done in a week, meaning it's not going to be perfect, and it was made for a great cause.

    In all honesty, I don't see why people are even discussing why this song would even be bad when it was made for the Relief of Japan. This song wasn't made to blow our minds and be a masterpiece. I think that if it indeed was made for this special occasion, that it was meant to be a slow song that incorporates the emotions of this issue. Nobody wants a heavy fast paced song for something that we should be mourning for. Personally I actually quite enjoy this. It's to me, Linkin park's departure from the almost negative feel of ATS. Though I know this is wishful thinking, this may be just a little tiny taste of what's to come. If this is indeed a newly made song, I could see Mike and the crew putting in some of their new creative energy into this song. And you know what???? I'm loving this. So keep it coming!

    You're absolutely right, I myself donated to my national Red Cross' fund for Japan without getting any music or anything back, but we are still allowed to discuss the quality of the song, are we? :D

    I too donated (I could easily have found this song without donating)


    Me, along with others, are just stating for the record what we think of the song itself. Nobody said we were expecting something big. I don't think anybody on this forum is dumb enough to have had high hopes for the quality of the song. I'm sorry if I'm not allowed to comment on the quality of a Linkin Park song on a Linkin Park forum.

    I'm thrilled that my favorite band is going through these efforts when other big artists aren't really stepping up the plate quite like this. It makes me proud to be a fan of them.

    Wow! I really love the slow buildup. I don't know why, but it moved me, especially the 2nd half. Words would have totally ruined the effect. I like that it's an instrumental. Plus, it awakened my dead muse for a particular story i was writing and need to finish like ASAP or else fail. Thank you Mike Shinoda.

    Final rating = :thumbsup:

    He said "masterpiece", not "something that's pretty good considering".

    I had the best experience on my headphones opposed to my speakers. I can't say I love it by any means, but it's alright (and may I add, LIKE TOTALLY AWESOME given the conditions).

    They should play it live at their next show.

    I like it a lot. Minimalist production, and very Japanese (intentionally or unintentionally). This is a calm and composed track, no cheesy vocals. The beats are just right and not too aggressive. The end gives a very hopeful vibe. For a second there, I thought this song was a hidden track in Kid A. :)

    Very NIN mood to it. I thought it was pretty badass, due to the situation I have a feeling it is supposed to be stripped down, but uplifting nonetheless. Apparently "stripped down" = terrible, lazy and boring in this place. I also love the fact that people are comparing it to Radiohead/ NIN etc, then saying it's lazy, high expectations much? I rank this up there in the top 3 instrumentals and the awesome Muse-esque Fuzz Factory distortion throughout only adds to it.

    What is this trying to prove? That they can make a masterpiece in a week?

    1.) Is this really a masterpiece?
    2.) Do you know how long this even took?
