    I must have missed the part where I blew up. I'm just pointing out that your arguments had no validity to them whatsoever. Where is the immaturity in that?

    I mean you gotta figure they've had less time to fill it with songs anyways. ATS and M2M both have what? 3-4 years of production behind them? We've essentially cut that creation period in half so naturally the album is gunna be shorter and probably even a little less fluid (as compared to ATS.) I'd be more worried if they tried to stretch it out, because then you run the risk of getting tracks like easier to run, in between, and robot boy :p

    Tinfoil is probably the next Cure For The Itch then.

    Let's apply this very sentence to LIVING THINGS since the album is yet to be released, and thus a "future album". You are flinging disappointment at this album, criticizing it and "disagreeing with it" without even hearing it. You are voicing contempt for a record that you have no clue of the direction of, or the sound of, and are just reading descriptions of (most of which are inaccurate according to Mike himself). This same thing happens EVERY album cycle. Fans see the album lengths (which btw with the exception of Reanimation have NEVER been over 50 minutes, heck Collision Course was 28 minutes!), freak out...automatically assume the CD to be absolute crap, and then backpedal as soon as it's out. Now if you hear the CD, and still hate it that's another story...but why not listen first before thinking song lengths will have any bearing on the quality of the album? It's kind of ridiculous.

    Whats the point of a message board if not to discuss stuff like this? My bad for attempting to start a discussion on what he was pointing out. Maybe I was a little harsh about it but whatever.


    Lol ok I'm done...

    If they stick to the '18 Month Plan', then it's really twice the music amount in half the time. So we win mostly.

    At first, like man people on here I was a bit disappointed with that album lenght as i thought it was a step back from MTM & ATS. But i had a strong feeling it will be from the start. But like a few wise people have said: quality over quantity. For all we know this album could have some of their best songs on it.

    Personally i'm still longing for the day Lp makes a 50-60 min album. not all long albums are ponderous a full of filler. See Queens of the stone age: "songs for the deaf". So like all things, it comes down to personal opinion. Like it or deal with it :lol:

    Well, if that's true I'm fine with it. But, I have a feeling it'll be more like 40-45 minutes long. Think about it... BID is almost 4 minutes long right? we don't even know if it's the longest song on the record and I think not. so 36-4=32... 32/11=2.9 -I don't think that's the case tbh , but we'll have to wait and see.

    36 minutes, not bad at all. Noticing Dark Side Of The Moon (Pink Floyd) was a pretty short album (43 minutes), with 6 songs of 3 minutes or less.
    Though to me, after I listened to the album, it was a pretty long journey, even though it wasn't that long of an album. (could be because I was stoned :rastamike:), just kiddin. Short albums can sound like a long journey, if it's good quality music.
    I really hope there'll be a 5+ minute song on Living Things though, and for example a 1 minute interlude Mister Hahn something :)

    Well I think it would be more realistic if the length is +36 since Mike said "every track 3-4 minutes long", but we´ll see how long it is when we first listen to the album.

    Okay for the record, I saw people telling someone to chill out in this thread, and to me he wasn't "angry" at all. I think people need to relax and stop jumping down eachother's throats. Seriously.
