    I know there has been a thread posted for this, on the front page. But I'd rather have more professional opinions on this one. Not just "oh my god this shocked me" stuff.

    I really think that these previews changed everything I thought about the album. Interludes are more than just 1:30 fillers. They have emotion, they are songs. I appreciate them so much more.

    Here's my rundown:

    - The Requiem: A haunting, dark intro. I really think this is the best they came up with to start an album.

    - The Radiance: I thought it would just be a boring speech, but the instrumental behind it is very Mike Shinoda remix-esque. It flows pretty nicely.

    - Burning In The Skies: I like the instrumental behind it, and the lyrics are very soft, and well pretty fitting.

    - Empty Spaces: Exactly, and I mean exactly what I expected.

    - When They Come For Me: Heavily diverse, I enjoy Mike's rapping and the beat behind it. The chorus, it seems to me isn't really vocals, but more of chants.

    - Robot Boy: Less than what I expected, but I still really like it for some reason. It has more electronic influence than what I expected. (Funny thing, it's title, and I didn't expect it to have electronic influence)

    - Jornada Del Muerto: Reminds me of a distorted version of Robot Boy. I liked it though. The synth is epic, and well fitting.

    - Waiting For The End: More poppish and ballad-like from what I previously heard. I still like this song though, can't wait to hear Mike's verses.

    - Blackout: Once again, I thought Ana went overboard with what she said, but it's the truth. The instrumental behind Chester's screaming early on is awful. The scratching part is very reanimation-esque though.

    - Wretches and Kings: Great song, especially the full version.

    - Wisdom, Justice, and Love: My favorite interlude. Very haunting, cold, dark, and scary. I enjoy every second of the clip. It's very emotion and the robotic voice is perfect.

    - Iridescent: Reminds me of a lighter version of Burning In The Skies. I would love to see the build up on this one.

    - Fallout: A dark robotic interlude using the lines from Burning The Skies.

    - The Catalyst: I really love this song.

    - The Messenger: A perfect way to close out the album. I really like it. Chester's vocals are top notch here.

    This is judge off of clips, so sorry if i'm not spot on with everything. Anyone else wanna do a track by track off of clips? I can't wait to hear the rest.

    You are welcome. I updated it to give it more of a professional, descriptive type feel.
    I contradicted myself with that fact, so it needed an update.
