    MOH one is better. The drums in the intro are just irritating in the Album version, after listening to the MOH's one.

    Same here..

    A song like COG always needed to be like the MOH version - A gradual buildup, slightly cinematic etc etc. NOT a 3-minute "its-over-before-it-started" version..

    The only thing I don't like about the MOH version is how quiet the song is for that first minute or so. It's barely audible.

    They should've do something like this with every song. Put the live intro of LITE in the studio version, put a synth build up in IMR and you know what I mean. Just the songs are short, start fast and end fast.

    No, it's better without. That's the misunderstanding with Linkin Park track lengths. People think A Thousand Suns had super long songs, but a lot of it was just build-up

    Yes. LITE live intro is really awesome!

    And no, I like the album version more.

    I find the album version better. the intro of MOH version takes away the folk vibe.

    I love the MOH mix more because of the pure ambiance of the first few minutes. It's much more amazing and better to listen to than the jarring electronic drums of the album mix's intro.

    Personally, I prefer the album version. I don't dislike the MOH version, but I think the album version is more infectious. I for one love the drum effect. ;)

    I like the album version better, but I have nothing against the Medal of Honor one.

    MOH version definitely. I like the extended intro. Reminds me of 'The Catalyst'.

    You say that like having a song progress is a bad thing. Personally, I find that LIVING THINGS had interesting song ideas, however the band limited themselves to making "short fire-cracker songs" and didn't allow them to really build into anything but a short, somewhat enjoyable idea.

    Back on topic, I like the extended intro of MOH, but it doesn't add enough for me to enjoy it more than the other.

    I really like the extended intro of the MOH one but I miss the drum loop thing in that version.

    I think the long intro from MOH version into the album version would be the way to go. Regardless, the song ends too abruptly and could use a bit of an extended outro.

    I think the MOH mix works for the music video but I don't think it would add much to the song itself.

    Nah, original is better man, although the MOH one isn't bad.

    It'd be good for live performances to keep things interesting

    The MOH mix has more of an ATS vibe to it, but I prefer the more rocky album version.
