    I love the album cover, so it's interesting to see how they picked the cover in the first place but as far as I could tell they made alterations to the art shortly before releasing it. I'm actually a bit surprised that they were under a rush to get the release date in time. I do wonder how much further back the release would have been otherwise.

    Can't wait till the eventual Part 2 where they discuss the track listing and the song titles!

    There isn't going to be a "Part 2" because they didn't clearify this as "Part 1". Nevertheless, there might be another LPTV where they discuss them, soon, but not as a "Part 2" of this LPTV.

    I know this is ultra late, but I really wish we'd see a close up of some of those other images.

    Secondly I'm now a bit worried, they said they had a tight deadline, I hope that doesn't mean, they are rushing the album.

    Nope, they are not rushing the album, they've always been really tight with deadlines, just watch some of the Making-Of DVD's, they had trouble in Meteora because Chester got sick, they were really stressed during A Thousand Suns, it's natural, the last few weeks before a record must always be stressful because there is a lot going on and to be wrapped up, and might not only happen to them but with many artists.

    I don't think you should be worried, because many music journalists and radio people have listened to the record by now, and there is YET to be a bad word about the album, LIVING THINGS hasn't receive ONE bad critic on any song to date, and that actually makes it really interesting and exciting.

    I'm not sure if anyone pointed this out, but the song in the video sounds a lot like the song "There She Is" from the Portal 2 soundtrack because of the harp sounds and chords.

    I agree. Plus, correct me if I'm wrong, Mike does say in the video that the release date for the album was the one they wanted, so I don't think they were pressured to finish the album sooner. iTunes was just pressuring them about the album name/tracks part.

    I was going to write this in my post as well but I didn't, and I agree. The date was one they WANTED, not one they were rushed into.

    Oh okay, that actually makes me feel a little better, maybe I wasn't listening properly when I watched the video or something, lol that is typical me.

    Yeah I remember the band being a little stressed the ATS DVD, my memory is terrible these days, so I can't remember exactly why, but I think that was the first time I saw Mike even slightly stern.

    And yes the 100% positive reception so far, has got me pumped even more.

    Yeah there were some pretty tense scenes in there, it almost felt awkward even when you know you're not there.. And there is a part where Brad turns away the camera and asks to stop filming. They were stressed at one point :lol:

    I'm really confident and pumped about it, I really think a masterpiece is coming.

    Holy coincidence, Batman! I'd laugh if someone was playing Portal 2 in the background and we've all just interpreted it to be a new song haha xD

    Just because the album cover and song titles were rushed, it doesn't mean the content of the album was rushed. Based on all the reviews it looks like they pretty much got the music spot on and that's the important thing :)
