    In times like these a good Enter Shikari quote might come in handy: "Calm down, calm the f*** down! Ghandi, remember Ghandi!"

    Hmm, well, if this Information is correct, it would go hand in hand with Mikes Post about the "Firecracker" Stuff. Short but with a Bang. Anyways, why do people even argue about this point so much? It`s the Music itself that matters, not some fricking song leghts.

    No, you're not understanding the point. The main point was that I said that this album will have at least TWO more full tracks than ATS, in case one of the songs there is an instrumental. Night Of Neptune asked me why didn't I consider an instrumental a "full song" and I replied that because it wouldn't be able to be played live.

    The point is not on whether LP has played instrumentals/interludes in the past (which they obviously have), but those that they HAVE PLAYED, happen to be SHORT ENOUGH to merge with the setlist. Would they play a FOUR minute instrumental track like Cure for the Itch and Session live? No? Well, THAT'S the point.

    Interludes like Wake or those in ATS merge with their respective follow up songs and serve as an extended intro for them, and that's why they work, also that they are short enough, none of them are over two minutes.

    But they HAVE played Cure For The Itch and Session live several times. Also, I doubt they'd put a 4 minute instrumental. That IS pushing it.

    I said 4 minutes to throw a number, basing on Mike's statement that the tracks were on the "3~4 minute mark" .. But who knows. Anyways, we already got more songs than ATS so it's already a win for me.

    Shorter songs = more songs to play live.

    No need to be subtle, that was me. And I alone. I overreacted and it's okay to call me out for it.

    @AkirraKrylon I'm sorry, I am the one who blew up. I took your post the wrong way and misjudged. I guess I felt your post was an attack on my opinion and that it was not needed. I didn't set out to try to convince anyway or to "Argue" that they were anything other than opinion. Just as I said before, in hindsight I see I may have took your post the wrong way. Gomen.

    Its all good, man. No worries. I didn't mean to be harsh either - I perhaps should have maybe chosen my words a little better, my bad on that ;)

    Back on topic, I hope the shorter songs and the 'energetic-hit-you-in-the-mouth' structures surprise you Ryo and you end up liking them.

    In my opinion, if you mix the ATS creativity with some high energy fast paced stuff it could really work well...lets hope LP delivers the goods.

    Well, it's true just because songs are short does not mean they are bad. Jornada del Muerto and Fallout come to mind.

    I remember 2 years ago when we knowed the lenght of ATS was 47 minutes all people went mad just like now, screaming and bitching for a 60 minutes album. It went worst when that 18 sec empty spaces track was anounced.

    This time i expected the album to be shorter than ATS, but i got this feeling of abandonment; i mean (personally) ATS is the best LP album so far not because is the longest or cuz being a concept album, no it is the best because it is the most creative work from LP.

    2 intros, and the first one is fkin badass; The requiem instantly drops you into the album, it´s so atmospheric with the moaning and the fake/alien girls voice, wow.
    When they come for me and blackout are songs that maybe we all dreamed since the days of meteora; i like that when first time listen, those 2 songs were unpredictable almost like an adventure.

    The only thing i want from living things is that it contains the same amount of creativity, with burn it down we didnt get that, but there still 11 other songs.
    Btw i consider BID to be the son of Robot boy (sound/music) and waiting for the end (structure/lyrically).
    I think i am nostalgic.

    By the way, my mom said it is still full price. Doesn't matter if you only lasted 3 minutes out of 36 minutes. :kappa:

    On topic: I'll wait for the album before I judge it.
