    I know we have not heard the album but i think their track positioning on this album might be one of their best. I see what you are saying. The first half of the album seems like it has the perfect order (and probably the second half also)

    I've spent the majority of my internet-time today to seek out the general reception of LIES GREED MISERY, and it's been really polarizing. Interestingly enough, it's usually either "GEEZ FOR CHRISTS SAKE, WTF IS THIS SHIT? BRING BACK HT!!!" or "OMG, I LOVE IT, LIVING THINGS WILL BE THERE BEST ALBUM EVER!!". (Any grammatical error was intentional.) I can understand perfectly both sides, and yet, I really don't get either.

    I listened to the song for a total of 10 times, and I still can't decide what to do with it. I'm not quite fond of overly electronic music (dubstep and whatnot), and honestly they might've gone too far with the electronic sound this time around. When I listened to the song the first time, my initial reaction was "Uhm, what." I understand that LP is trying to explore new musical territories every time they come out with an album, but I honestly don't see their intentions with LIES GREED MISERY. My biggest problem with the song is that, while almost every single LP song in the past represented a certain level of emotion, I really didn't feel any emotion channeled through this song. I hear Mike rap, I Chester scream through the bridge, and I finish the song without any kind of emotional or atmospheric involvement whatsoever.

    It's probably the beats. The "thrashing, in-your-face" eletronic noise compilation in the background is just waaay too extreme for me. I feel like it doesn't do the lyrics justice, because honestly the lyrics are beast. Straight-up awesomeness, and what do they back them up with? A bunch of distorted eletronic sounds. What a waste.

    Over all, I wouldn't say that LIES GREED MISERY is a considerable amount of buffalo feces, but I wouldn't go as far as saying it's a good song, let alone amazing. I'm thus far 1-1 with LIVING THINGS: I like one song (BID), and don't really like one (LGM). I'm not trying to bash or praise the album in any way, because we've only heard 1/6 of it, and that's just not enough for preconception. I really hope the album turns out to be great, though I highly doubt it'll top my personal favourite LP album (Minutes to Midnight).

    10 times? That's all?

    That's not enough time to make an accurate judgement :)

    I'm at 34 on my iTunes count :WTF:

    Are we talking about LGM still? If so, 546, including the 112 of my radio rip before Joe got home with the official MP3. Just saying :awesome:

    iTunes play count? Yes, yes THAT makes you the best fan.

    Kidding.

    That's odd, because the song is hotlinked it should download directly or give you access to the files :/

    I'm the only one who thinks this song is awful? Yes? Okay then.

    I think this song is awful.

    Burn It Down also underwhelmed me, but it was okay, par-for-the-course. Living Things not doing great for me so far, but I'll reserve my judgement until I hear the whole thing, including songs that sound like they'll be more up my alley like Lost In The Echo sounds like it might be.

    It's cool that LGM is right after BID on the tracklist. I like how the energy is high on the 3rd and 4th track. Perhaps they'll release I'LL BE GONE next since that's the 5th track hhuehauhuea
