    I'm not sure if this is worth making a thread out of, but I noticed that a constant element that makes all the tracks fit together nicely and sit well within the album is the element of bitcrushing.

    Edit: For those who don't know / are curious: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcrusher

    If you noticed, there is at least one element in every song on LT that is bitcrushed (except for Roads Untraveled as far as I know.) I'll name them:

    LITE - Intro Synth
    IMR - Intro/Verses Piano
    Burn It Down - Synths
    LGM - Kick
    IBG - Intro/Outro Synth
    COG - Intro Guitar
    Victimized - Guitars / First Verse Vocals
    RU - n/a
    STB - Synths
    UIB - Drums/Synths
    Tinfoil - Pads
    Powerless - Intro/Verse Drums

    Idk if it's a sound preference of Mike/Joe/Brad, etc., but it's a nice effect that connects the tracks in the album imo. :)
    Just wanted to share. :p

    That's why the album is so dirty in a lot of the songs. Synth + bitcrush and other distortion effects creates pure filth. Skin To Bone makes me wet.
