I really, really love Minutes to Midnight.
"Cure for the Itch" is the most original-sounding instrumental Linkin Park's ever created. I think it's their best one, by far.
The only thing about it that makes me sad is that it should've led into the "remix" of "High Voltage" (which isn't a remix so much as a newer version of the song). I wish it'd've made the album.
I feel like Session is one of the best tracks on Meteora, and one of the best instrumentals ever. It mixes so many sounds, scrathing and it just sounds so good.
Unfortunately, it's the best track on Meteora.
I like "Session" – don't get me wrong. But "Cure for the Itch" seems to be much more organic than anything else they've created, as far as instrumentals go. Plus, the pun in the title is just fantastic.
I also like Cure For The Itch, but I feel like it doesn't really push any limits. While Session does.
Drawing is also a great instrumental, but it was used for Breaking The Habit.
I've listened to both songs back to back to see which makes me feel best. I never listen to CFTI these days, only Session.
I choose Session for 1:30-2:00. Those 30 seconds are fucking bliss. I think it's one of LP's best moments.
I view that as more of a "skit" song, while the other instrumentals set some sort of mood, while Jornada just is a weird addition.
Jornada sets more of a tone than Wake, your argument is invalid.
I didn't include Jornada because it isn't really an instrumental. I mean, it has clearly heard lyrics, ''Mochiagete, tokihanashite...''. But, it's an awesome track. Wake is a great intro to MTM, anyway.
Then why the fuck is Cure For The Itch in there?
Clearly heard lyrics:
"Ehh *cough cough* (meow?)
Folks, we have a very special guest for you tonight. I would like to introduce Mr. Hahn!
Let's hear it for the great Mr. Hahn!
And now for a lesson in rhythm management!
Now wasn't that fun! Let's try something else!"
Minus' got a point.
Minus has a point. No doubt.
But, Cure For The Itch was always considered an instrumental, while Jornada wasn't. You have to admit, CFTI has a much more ''organic'' (someone said that before) sound. Also, the vocals in CFTI are scratched out, and ''And now for a lesson in rhythm management!'' is very hard to understand. Also, you always claim that Meteora is a pure imitation of Hybrid Theory. The penultimate track of Meteora is Session, which is an instrumental, and the penultimate track of Hybrid Theory is Cure For The Itch which was always considered an instrumental. Jornada has lyrics ''Mochiagete, tokihanashite...'' which means ''Lift me up, let me go'' as far as I know, while Cure For The Itch is pure, spoken: ''Ummmm, we also have a DJ in the band, his name is Mr. Hahn, so, here we go, this is him.'' That's why I didn't include it.
So spoken word is considered instrumental now?
Instrumental literally means without vocals. Whether understandable or not, the voice is the voice.
Jornada del Muerto is amazing, I can't listen to Waiting For The End without Jornada first. To be honest I prefer Jornada to Cure For the Itch but whether JDM is an instrumental or not has already been discussed and settled (well, to me because I was the one who started the discussion on it here )
Regardless of Meteora as an album in its entirety, Session has got to be by far the best in my opinion.
I didn't like wake. And Jornada sounds like a lot of other songs on ATS instrumental wise.
It was tough to choose between CFTI and Session, but I went with CFTI simply because of the part of the song after "let's try something else"
Also, Kyur4It (whatever spelling is) should be included!
Please don't, I don't want to fight again...
