    It's pretty damn sweet!
    Love how Mike's vocals play a bigger part in this version.

    My absolute favorite part of this is the bridge and outro. The harmonizing at the final bits over the stripped down instrumental just = win.

    You guys, we are supposed to hate this if we want them to continue doing acoustic songs, don't you guys know how they work when it comes to doing what is expected?

    No we just have to make sure that nobody else on the radio does it...so Mike gets frustrated and ends up doing it to fill a void. :p

    I love the contrast between Mike's crackling, bass voice on verse one and Chester's stronger, octave-higher voice entering in verse two.

    This version is really beautiful.

    Such beauty. My mum would like it.
    If only they had made The Messenger more like this, with soft singing rather than death growl singing. I would have liked to hear some harmony involving Mike in TM as well.

    Some stripped down versions plus original acoustic songs. Maybe a few instrumentals? Ya'know what I'm talking 'bout, right? Right?

    They should totally do a PledgeMusic campaign for this sort of stuff if Warner is happy with that (most likely not).

    This is actually a great way to keep fans entertained (release more music) while working in the studio and touring.

    Agreed. I'm glad Chester showcased clean vocals here. That growling tone would've been out of place.

    Screw that, Primo would be vastly superior in an acoustic format I think.

    I actually gave that very suggestion yesterday to someone in touch with the band (PledgeMusic) but who knows if it'd happen. Warner would probably block it.

    I for one don't like it. I would elaborate, but I fear a shitstorm.
    You obviously have no idea what a death growl even sounds like.

    Hey, you're the first person to have a negative opinion on this thread (unless you're being sarcastic or something, I don't understand a lot of your posts :shrug:) . You realize for a fandom that bitches about everything, not a single negative opinion is so weird right? Just go ahead and elaborate.
    You're doing it for making this community normal again. :kappa:
