    I thought the new album was aggressive and raw?

    Derek you told us Until It's Gone was the softest thing on there and the rest of the record definitely wasn't like that.

    This is cheesy as hell. It sounds worse than Nickelback :(

    So based on UIG and FM the album is not aggresive and raw?

    Some extreme opinions on here.

    First song I'm honestly "meh" about. Why are these softer songs singles? GATS was more of a street single.

    Not a fan. Chester performs well, but the vocal line sounds way too cheesy to me. I liked Rob once again, that intro/verse beat he plays is so groovy that it's a shame it's wasted in this song :p Really nothing special. I'll pass.

    No Wastelands, Rebellion, GATS definitely are, but this is totally in the other direction. Like poppy What I've Done shit.

    And don't get me wrong I dont need to hear Chester screaming his lungs out, but I don't like him whining some simple pop chords either.

    Music is subjective by the way, i'm just expressing an opinion which anyone can take or leave. You don't have to facepalm me. This is part of why I stopped posting on this site years ago and internet forums in general.

    Nope. You can't ask for such things here.
    I don't understand the trouble. It's VERY easy to find on your own.

    Just listened to it and I absolutely love it! Sounds like MTM, which is fantastic because its my favourite album, its definitely underrated in my opinion! Also I love LP's ballads so this was what I was hoping for when I read the song descriptions. Although I love their heavier stuff as well I will always prefer their softer songs like Shadow of the Day, Leave out all the rest etc. I've only listened to it the once so I'm gonna have to listen to it again to see how it ranks compared to their other songs. But The Hunting Party is shaping up to be my favourite album they've released since MTM, bring on the 13th of June!!! :D

    I don't get how people can't find it, I found it straight away after using google. It's not rocket science people! :p

    The song reminds me of End of Heartache by Killswitch Engage for some reason. It's not a bad thing.

    If you were going to make a generalized statement without explaining yourself, that's what you get.

    Yeah this is softer than Until It's Gone, I think but I do like it more. This is ballad-y whereas Until It's Gone feels very middle of the road to me. Also, I don't know if it has been touched on since I'm not reading all 10 pages but the mixing on this song sounds better than the others.

    My ranking right now: Rebellion > Final Masquerade > Wastelands > GATS > Until It's Gone

    The song is nothing new or surprising for the most part but it's absolutely beautiful. A classic uplifting ballad that LP are great at. This song deserves to be a hit.

    Well..... it's different that's for sure. I really love the bridge, easily my favorite part. Chester sounds good, but I don't know if it feels right for this song. It's a song that will definitely grow on me, unlike GATS.

    If I had to rate the songs so far

    Until It's Gone = Rebellion > Final Masquerade > Wastelands > Guilty All The Same

    Every song so far has been very different from each other, which is great. That's something I usually have a problem with in LP albums, not enough diversity. The creativity in this album makes it feel like an aggressive ATS. This is going to be a solid album for sure.

    I haven't listened to anything aside GATS and UIG, and I'm glad I didn't.
