    This song, nah. It's nothing against Mike, mostly dislike the vocals. I also don't like how empty the chorus sounds/feels. It just feels like there's something missing. I'll probably never listen to that again.

    This isn't far off from what I'd want a Fort Minor album to be. Shinoda's beats but none of Shinoda's rapping.

    If Aesop Rock appeared on a LP track, I would lose my mind.

    Lice EP was one of my favorite projects of last year. Great to hear Mike keeps up with Aes. Cool remix.. I actually dig it more than the original version. Grimy ass beat!

    So the original sampled "One Step Closer", then Mike returns the favour. Wonder if he listens more extensively to Aesop Rock's material, probably one of the best lyricists I've heard in rap (if you're not bothered by abstract/obtuse content).

    The skeletal segment beginning at 1:34 coupling with Aesop's rap is my favourite part of the remix. Great beat overall.

    This is fire.

    It sounds as if Aesop Rock and Homeboy Sandman made a song for The Raid.

    I love how the reactions to this track are either: A. This is fire or B. WTF this is garbage

    There's like no middle ground :lol:.

    This is a mess. Surprised Mike would release this as a branded Fort Minor remix
