    So, now, you have enough participants for a "Living Things"/possible album title appreciation thread. ;)

    At one point, the 5th album page had the album listed as Mistakes Best Left Undone which I personally think would be amazing. Living Things is growing on me though, thinking about it more, we're all living things, we're all living through things.

    I don't get why people bash the "Living Things", it's a fine name!
    IMO the quality of the album does not depend on the title (although it's important), it depends on the quality of the songs in the album...
    If the songs are great, I will not complain even with the title "Potato Songs":rastamike:

    Mike also commented about the puzzles. He said he could not do them and he did like 2 and gave up because it's confusing :)

    You know it's funny, way back when "Living Things" was revealed in the Burn It Down puzzle, my first impression was "that doesn't sound like a Linkin Park album, that seems more like something a band like Arcade Fire would come up with." Then a few days later I find out a member from Arcade Fire is collaborating with strings on the album. I guess as much as I hate Living Things as the album name, any name is possible. Although did Mike seem sarcastic at all when he gave a hint to the Living Things title?

    EDIT: my mistake, I meant the guy who worked strings for Arcade Fire

    See, this is why I think "Frat Party At The Pankake Festival" was a great title; I mean, if you think about it, we're all living through a frat party at a pancake (or pankake) festival. :)

    Pssh - "Potato Songs" would actually be a much better album title! ;D

    I actually agree with this. It would have a LOT of people talking and intrigued by the album. Not to mention if the songs are incredible, then it would show that Linkin Park has some serious balls.

    Of course, realistically anything is a better Linkin Park album title than Living Things.

    I actually doubt it'll end up being "Living Things".

    The guy you're talking about, Owen Pallett, isn't in Arcade Fire. He's a solo artist/composer.

    I really can't stand this fan base and their expectations that the band just has to be, and do things, a certain way.

    now more people accept LT thx guys

    Chester said the lyrics are about relationships and i think we are the Living Things, our body our memories our act and our ambience thats why they chose this name

    but it will be Epic if it isnt the title :trollface:

    Whoops my bad. I just remembered looking at the article in excitement and seeing "Arcade Fire Owen Pallett" bolded. I jumped to conclusions there.

    I like Living Things, but I think Skin to Bone sounds way cooler.

    In terms of naming things, I think it'd be cool just to see the band not take everything so seriously and put out some titles - for albums or songs or whatever - that scream "WE DON'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT TITLES AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU!" :)

    You'll never know ... ;P

    I never said I was a big fan of the title. ;) Do it yourself.
