    I also think that this song is reminiscent of their older sound but still seems fresh. I'm really liking how Chester and Mike's parts complement each other in this song. What I'm curious to see is whether Mike and Chester will bring back their "back-and-forth" method from songs such as Forgotten and With You. There may be other songs in this style but that's all I can remember for now. This is one of my favorite styles from these guys and I would certainly like to see it return. They have great chemistry when they just go at it in a song and reinforce one another. This is why Forgotten is one of my absolute favorite songs from LP.

    The good guy vs bad guy thought approach? I think we might see 1 or 2 songs in this album with that. I expect more of what I heard in Living Things and ATS in terms of their chemistry. Mike did that in The Rising Tied (Red To Black) but this is just me since they are going with the 80s / 90s approach I dunno if we will see that. I mean Mike Patton from FNM did it but he was his own Chester and Mike lol so it might be possible.

    Here's what I'd expect, that formula you mentioned except when the chorus comes in, Mike singing and Chester as backup as I haven't seen that being done yet. Because they did that in a singing style in Roads Untraveled.

    Forgotten is my favorite Linkin Park song of all time. Nothing will ever take that title away.

    Man, that clapping/drumming/electronic medley is so catchy. Just that sample in itself makes this song very enjoyable to me, regardless of the very familiar sounding rap verses and chorus.

    After such a bouncy hook, I just expected it to maintain a little more of that excitement, and not be somewhat ballad-y and flow-y.

    That's not to say that this song isn't in its niche perfectly though. I'm just seeing where it could of gone with such an awesome bit to it. I'd give what I've heard of this song an 8.5/10, my favorite thus far.

    Yea, I am starting to believe that Runaway-ish intro isn't part of the song. It almost seems like he did what he does in the live shows when he starts P.O.A. with that extra rap verse.

    It's not. As both I and astat said earlier, it's the outro to Runaway blending into Wastelands. I've heard the studio version and the song starts way different.

    Yeah, they played a shortened version of Runaway that immediately blended into Wastelands. As soon as I heard the new lyrics I knew it was going to be a new song (I was hoping there would be a new song) and started recording, which is why the video starts so abruptly.

    Derek. I know you've gotten a ridiculous amount of questions but I need to know, how different are the other songs chorus compared to GATS? Because Wastelands sounds stupidly similar(I still like it though)

    Didnt see the problem, people who HATE (bashing etc) all after Meteora or M2M should just go away and cry. Its ok to critizise something (i didnt hear Wastelands yet, so i cant see why these "people" are crying. BUT if you cant critizise something without bashing, you are an idiot and you should "give Linkin Park up".

    Cant see why people think that LP will bring the "Nu Metalz \m/" back :shrug:
