    There's not really a difference. Living Things is supposedly 36 minutes long and the inclusion of the live version of What I've Done (which I believe is around 4 minutes long) would make the album about 40 minutes

    Okay, some of you guys need to take a chill pill

    A. Its not even confirmed
    B. So....36 mins? ATS came out not even 2 years ago
    C. Length means nothing "Cynic - Focus" voted one of the best if not THE BEST Prog album ever, only just reaches 35 mins (AND THAT'S PROGRESSIVE MUSIC!)
    D. ATS was only 47 mins due to interludes, take them away and your left with around 40 mins
    E. Instrumentals are songs, no vocals means no song? WTF u takin bout? :WTF:

    True.. a few 2 and a half minute songs, and maybe a short interlude, we can easily have a 4-5 minute song on there.

    Length isn't an issue, the difference between a 36minute and 45 minute album is about 2-3 songs, LPU CD in Nov-ish usually too. Satisfaction guaranteed. :)

    I bet that What I´ve Done [Live] track is only on the Japanese Edition. They have almost on every album a Live track at the end. Too, I don´t really want to have What I´ve Done [Live] on my Living Things studio album ;) Oh, and I think it´s the same track as on the Burn It Down Single CD (iTunes Festival).

    You haven't even heard the album yet.

    Eh, I am just numb to this entire album drop this time around. It really doesn't look like it'll dethrone ATS to me, but if it does, I'll be extremely happy and surprised. Although, I would be far more happy if there were 8-9 songs with only 36 minutes of music.

    Technically, an instrumental is not a song, it is a piece. A song is a musical composition for voice. Not to say I don't love instrumentals...

    Regardless, I couldn't care less how long the album is. Like a professor once told me, "If you can say everything you need to say in a page, why write 10?"

    As far as song-lengths go, I completely agree. Regardless of structure, most songs are between 3:00 and 5:30.. the primary, differentiating factor being tempo. Most longer songs are longer because they are slower. (Very few have additional verses/bridges/etc. Some have a few additional bars of intro/instrumental sections).

    I'd prefer if it was this length and less songs .. Obviously no-ones heard it, but with the way the songs were condensed on Meteora this doesn't give me a good impression, I enjoyed the way songs like When They Come For Me built progression and the multisections of Blackout, I don't seem to thrilled about the possibility of returning to radio friendly song structures

    Haha, that'd be too long, in my opinion. I would never really have the time to sit and listen to it all the way through. I think around 40 minutes is perfect, and that's right where this is.
    ^Exactly. Hybrid Theory was "only" 37 minutes.

    When done well Longer albums are better in my opinion. I like experiences, journeys. But I'm not at all disappointed by this. 12 tracks is a pretty good amount of music. The one thing that worries me about it is that it could mean the return to song structure. That scares the holy shit out of me

    I think I'm the only one on my staff who doesn't care the album is 36 minutes. :lol:

    In my opinion, if it's a very enjoyable 36 minutes then I'll have nothing to complain about.
