    Don't get me wrong. I like soft LP songs like SOTD, Iridescent, and LOATR but this song sounds like it was slapped together in two minutes. The lyrics and mixing are just bad.

    Dude calm the f*ck down.
    LP IS THE BIGGEST BAND IN THE WORLD(well one of them)
    Is it surprising they have at least one song on the next record that can be played on the radio? No.
    While I still feel a radio friendly can be good(look at Waiting for the end) I don't personally "love" this either.

    ATS has great lyrics. Even LT has great lyrics for the majority of the album so I really disagree with you.
    Is it fair to be disappointed? Sure.
    But if you really feel this way I don't get why you are even on this forum.

    The more I listen, the more it grows. However, I would have liked to have Rob's drums mixed a little more prominently though.

    I agree, the more heavy sections are meh. But I know this was going to be poppy because it's a single, and it needs attention

    Problem is, LP ain't Radiohead.

    They'll probably always blend radio-friendly stuff with mellower stuff with agressive stuff with hip hop stuff with... . Like, it's in their DNA to do that, to blend all of those things. ATS was an experimental "soft" electronic record, but still had Wretches and Kinds. LT was a radio-friendly record, but still had Until It Breaks or Skin To bones or Victimized. THP will apparently be a heavier record, but yeah, as the others, it still had to have some radio-friendly songs, and probably a ballad too. My point is: you cannot expect them to erase what is their most obvious caracteristic, aka their blend of influences.

    These lyrics are amazing!!

    A fire needs a space to burn / A breath to build a glow / I've heard it said a thousand times / But now I know.

    I thought I kept you safe and sound... / I thought I made you strong.. / but something made me realize that I was wrong.

    "Cause finding what you've got sometimes.. means finding it alone. "

    These lyrics are fucking powerful!

    I'll add to to this, I think this is one of those songs that requires to be heard with the entire album, I don't think this is a great stand alone song or a great single. It's a good song, definitely need to grow with it but this is why I need the album. All my opinion though.

    As for Cylock_Dnb,

    I hear ya man. I get where you are coming from but you just seem pretty upset because you were expecting something out of Linkin Park set by your own mind. To go as far as say they are mediocre as musicians well.. that's entirely your opinion. I am sorry they have disappointed you. I could agree and say "they are *beep* music" but I like Linkin Park, just the way they are! And you can justify and get all scientific about how they are pretty lame band and that "deuces" I am out.. but you do realize..

    This is just 1 song..? We got an entire album to try out and you are passing judgment on this one song? Relax and wait.. then if you want leave. Deuces.. say you are out etc lol.

    Fun fact: I used to hate By Myself , With You, and Runaway when I first got Hybrid Theory. After countless of hours listening to the album, then I came to appreciate those songs. I used to skip em.

    I would have thought that it is so amazingly obvious that it does not need an explanation. If you listen to dance music, drum and bass etc and you love it enough to put it in your name, that's fine, that's the spice of life.

    But you know nothing about real music, so don't try and call someone a below average musician if you listen to Drum and bass and think it is great. You know nothing about real music. Any opinion on that matter is automatically a joke.

    It's like a fine food critic who's favorite food is beans on toast. a fine wine expert who's favorite drink is cheap cider that gets you drunk or an art critic who is 3 years old and likes dot to dot and colour by numbers.

    Excuse me? Yes, DNB stands for drum and bass. Do me a favor, explain to me as clearly as you can why the fact that an abbreviation of the words "Drum and Bass" in my username would "automatically disqualify" my right to an opinion. I will await your answer ecstatically.

    Aaaargh I'm so sad that I don't love it. It's a grower, for sure, but it's still something that's missing. Maybe it's an actual chorus, maybe it's the mixing that's not right, but something just doesn't feel right. The lyrics are not that good, as many others have pointed out already. I don't nkow what to think about this!

    I actually have no problem with the verses. I actually love them. Just the chorus(which is most of the song anyway)

    THIS. I was beginning to feel like I was the only one that wasn't expecting too much of this song. It was already pretty apparent that this was going to be a softer, more radio friendly song right? You can't judge the album on one song you don't like.

    After going through most of these comments, may I ask, what were you guys expecting? This song was way over hyped in the first place. The only thing Linkin Park did to build the hype on the song was to announce its premiere and release a 15 second snippet of the song. You guys all created the hype, so much that you guys thought that this would be one of the best Linkin Park songs to date.

    I'm going to politely ignore this and assume that you're either a musical idiot or simply haven't heard enough music to make the kind of generalization you just did.
