    This means any form of section from a particular member that stands out to you. Doesn’t have to be a guitar solo. I know that Rob has had a few drum solos. You could also add a rapping section you like from Mike, or a scream from Chester. Mine are: Guilty all the Same (Brad), A Line in the Sand (Brad), In Pieces (Brad), War (Brad), New Divide (Joe), Burn it Down (Mike), Somewhere I Belong (Mike), Given Up (Chester) and One Step Closer (Chester).

    What’s yours?

    I like the synth solo in The Catalyst and the guitar solo on OML. I also like the guitar solos on MTG and In Pieces.

    In Pieces seems to be in almost everyone’s list. Hey, it’s better than that sad excuse of a solo in What I’ve Done.

    A Line in the Sand is my favourite out of Brad’s solos overall. It’s a simple melody, a bit of tremolo picking and some tapping exercises, however it still sounds really cool.

    Forgot to say I like Joe’s part on Session, though that is more likely just pieces of performances mashed together :lol:

    That’s quite a bit.

    We can’t declare on most bands which album was a particular member’s best work, however one thing’s for sure: Brad’s work was best on THP.

    The solo in Burning in the Skies, Mike's rap in Victimized and the solo in In Pieces.

    There are more but these are the ones that I like the most.

    Favorite rap by Mike is in HHH. Favorite Chester vocal is on NCSM. Bass (kinda funny to say for LP...) but I’ll say Wake or TTM. And drums by Rob go to KTTK

    Opinions. :)

    Though the titular track on OML had some pretty cool guitar work.

    Agree with this. Chester's vocals on NCSM blew me away and Mike's verses on HHH are underappreciated from a technical standpoint.
