    To quote Mike quoting Don Gilmore "You guys know I mean the best, when I say... that this is crap."

    It's all over the place, and not in a good way. I'd agree with Mark as well, I keep having to turn it off, it's actually painful to watch.

    I enjoyed the video. It fits the song perfectly, for a live performance anyway. As this song is a very energectic performance live and it required a very energetic video. So overall, this video delivered big time, for me.

    The editing was very well done and the still frames of old Linkin Park songs was unique.

    I rank this as their second best video from the Minutes To Midnight album, closely behind the What I've Done video.

    Don't know if I like the jumpy editing. But I hope it'll be shown a lot on TV, just for the ones who think Linkin Park is emo, I know the lyrics are a bit but the song is almost hardcore at some points. We're used to Given Up, but I'll love hear people saying "That new song from Linkin Park. Damn it's crazy, and I thought they were gone soft. I mean, he held a scream like half of the song!"

    There's too much Chester in the video and not enough band. I like the way they filmed Chester though, he looks fucking tough, perfect for the song. :)

    I like it. I've said it before and I'll say it again, it's far better than Bleed It Out. Then again LP's videos don't really seem to have the spark they used to.

    Good lookin out! For a live footage video its pretty well edited and the random frames that are spliced in definitely add to it! :)

    Indeed. I really wonder why. Is it because they're afraid of presenting something that might be...'too cheesy'? =S I hope they'll deliver BIG time with their next album, and their future videos.

    From a visual standpoint, it is far too busy and there are WAY too many edits, effects and random frames put into the mix.

    It's so busy actually that viewed anywhere other than its native source, it looks like shit. On youtube it just comes off as a very bad fan bootleg.

    The band should have just created an actual music video, for all the editing they did to this clip.

    It's... "meh" worthy. I've never liked the whole 'studio quality song + live-ish video' thing; it equals bad.

    But, at least it's better than Bleed It Out.

    I prefer the fake version better, but this isn't bad.

    I thought it was pretty good. Really showed the energy of the song, and of the band when they play live. It WAS a bit jumpy, which was kinda hard to follow, but kinda made me pay even more attention.

    And at the end, I didn't really notice clips from other music videos (which I'll go back and probably notice now) but there was like, some serious subliminal messaging going on or something. :lol: I strongly remember a picture of a pig or a boar, I was just like "...Bzuh?"

    Haha, but overall, I thought it worked well for the song. I'm pumped to see it on TV, because I'm sure it will be much better than the YouTube version.

    iPod accepts your offering only if iPod finds your offering most pleasing! :lol:

    But remember, while iPod may shine light in our favor, iPod can also be a judging and ruthless iPod. Sacrifice your first generation mp3s to keep iPod satiated.
