    I'd like to see a "Making of" for this song, to understand why it sounds the way it does. ALTNC was essentially Aoki handing over bits and pieces of an EDM track he was working on and LP arranging it and adding vocals. Some of that instrumental was probably LP, too, hence the more palatable experience for their fans. DTB sounds more like Aoki had a track finished and maybe even a lyrical idea and the guys sang over it.

    Personally, ALTNC had me from the start, but on repeated listening it goes stale kinda quickly. DTB sounded so bad the first time I played it that I stopped before I got to the second chorus. On repeat listens, there is a bit of nuance to pick up, and that "darker" edge to the instrumental comes out more when you know what's being sung. Frankly, I expected this, but that doesn't mean it's bad.

    On the official lyric video it says fall. So until either Linkin Park or Steve Aoki come out and say that it should be "fold" instead of "fall," then the official lyric is fall.

    There are plenty of instances where the official lyrics are incorrect. There are quite a few in the MTM lyric booklet, in fact. I get what you're saying, and it is entirely possible that it is fall, but just because the lyric video says it doesn't make it true.

    Blame the intern who slapped the lyric video together at 4AM in the morning.

    That lyric video + the artistdirect thing obviously means something:

    As if this would be anything new.
    They rhymed Flow with Flow on Keys To The Kingdom
    They rhymed Down with Down in the second verse for Until It Breaks

    I like the background harmonic melody of the drop very much. Gives the whole thing a nice structure.

    Actually, bed rhymes with "said" and "dead" there. I guess it rhymes with itself, but the "real" rhyme there is with said and dead.

    That is some kindergarten level rhyming anyway.

    I remember when I saw his review for Living Things and I had no clue that he was such a bullshitter and it got me so hyped. I think he said something like the album changed rock music forever, and compared Roads Untraveled as an homage to 80s rock? It just confused me after listening to the album.

    I beg you... Of course, this is a pun on the album name Neon Future II.
    This is not "ass kissing garbage". It's truly phenomenal and poetical writing skillz!

    Ok, now I even cannot take myself seriously anymore...
