One Step Closer, lol
Burn It Down sure, but One Step Closer?! What?!
Shut up when I'm talking to you, punk.
Sometimes I just feel like SCREAMING AT MYSELF!!!!3
I fucking love "Until It's Gone". It's definitely top three off The Hunting Party.
The lyrics of Until It's Gone are very relatable. 'You don't know what you've got until it's gone' I total agree, this applies when you lose something that you never normally pay attention to or think about but then you really miss it if you lose it.
My old bunk bed was creaky and I couldn't fall onto it like a normal bed, instead I had to climb up. But being in my room without that bed there makes me really miss it, even if a normal bed is more practical. It's a weird example but it feels to me that the lyrics mean that you don't know how much something means to you until it's gone, and for that I like the lyrics.
Apart from the lyrics, I also quite like the song, it's got nice vocals and I like how it goes from heavy to soft to build-up to heavy. The instrumental effects are cool behind the vocals, and I like the dramatic sound of the bells and the heavy drums and the generally slow pace of the song. It could do with a more interesting bridge between the last 2 choruses though, and it would be nice to have some better bass to accompany the dramatic sound. The only bass I can hear is heavily played electric guitar in the chorus, which is relatively hard to hear over everything else.
This is a problem I have with a lot of Linkin Park, especially their newer stuff; lack of apparent bass guitar. There's a lot of distorted bass and cool electric guitar though. Feel free to disagree with me though, I don't know shit about music and I guess I just expect bass like in Foo Fighters, Muse, or Coldplay.
EDIT: There is noticeable bass in Mark The Graves
I loved Until it's Gone on first listen, and still love it now. This is the pinnacle of melody over lyrics to me. Sure, the chorus lyrics suck. Like, they're Meteora level bad. But Chester can deliver it like a fucking champ. The progression from the somber, almost whispering of the line to the full on screaming by the end works SO well, and keeps the track fresh when it otherwise would have gotten stale fast. The instrumentation here is off the charts. THP suffered a fair bit from poor production, but Until It's Gone sounds great. It's very atmospheric while keeping the trend of a huge wall of guitars in the chorus. It's basically what songs like In My Remains and I'll Be Gone aspired to be, but didn't quite reach.
I don't really understand this. First of all, I'm not sure what's wrong with Meteora lyrics, and secondly, all the lyrics in the chorus are just 'UNTIL IT'S GOOOONE' multiple times, so what's wrong with it?
1. "I wanna heal, I wanna feel what I thought was never real
I wanna let go of the pain I’ve felt so long
(Erase all the pain till it’s gone)"
Just overly edgy. Sure, it was cool when I was younger, but now I can barely get through songs like Somewhere I Belong, Don't Stay, or Hit The Floor without cringing a little.
2. You just described it. Not only is it obnoxiously repetitive, but it's also a phrase that has been "said a thousand times". The verse lyrics are fine. Some pretty decent metaphors in there don't just shove the idea of "You don't know what you've got until it's gone" down your throat, but the chorus just kind of sounds lazy, lyrically.
I get it now. Thanks!
No, don't follow his twisted train of thought.
If I shouldn't follow HIS twisted train of thought, then what other twisted train of thought should I follow? Yours? I thought that let to a dead end.
Join me and we can rule LPA and subject everyone to the Tocaraca Song endlessly.
Please do not talk to me about The Tocaraca Song or I'll blast your face with Burn It Down's rap verse at full volume. See how you'll like that huh?
I'll be just fine.
Pfft, we all know that you couldn't even survive the beginning of the song at HALF volume
Took only two persons to shitfuck this page..
Filip and Tony, you two need to be controlled!
