    That's badass. I'm glad it sounds like the "quality" of the screams is good too. After hearing Rebellion, I honestly felt like those screams were more intense than songs off Hybrid Theory (One Step Closer and APFMH, for instance).

    Do the screams in KTTK resemble those in Rebellion?

    There have been a few listening parties for LPU members around the world, and a lot of major players (Admins of this very site, for instance) are able to listen for review purposes and the like. Still not leaked, so don't get excited, it's all locked up and exclusive right now.

    This is a little tough to say as its been a few hours now since I heard the song but it had an electronic element to it sometimes and it really made it a unique sound. Its kinda hard to describe. Chesters vocals definitely are more intense than anything off of hybrid Theory though.

    Enough said. I'd say "sign me up", but I've been signed up since the opening riff of GATS.

    oooooohh sweet jebus! TORTURE. I can't wait for the 17th. Because it's my favorite number. It's also MegaMan X unit number, and when I did join the original forums that MMX2 was my moniker. This album is my destiny atm! IT will be EPIC because I FEEL IT SON.. I FEEL IT!

    @Rippin on That Thanks for the review! :)

    I'm much more hyped for the album than I was initially.

    Hey your welcome! I'm actually very excited to see how everyone is going to react to the album. The crazy success of Rebellion has me thinking it's going to go down well

    @Rippin on That
    Idk if anyone else asked this, but were there any tracks that stood out to you (Besides the 4 we got now)?

    Nice to see you enjoy the album :D
    I have a question, is there any Mike's outstanding singing on the album? (Minus Rebellion 'cause we all heard)

    And is there only Chester who does the vocal on the Final Masquerade?

    I've been reading all the threads and news posts lately, but I feel like I might have missed it (or maybe just breezed right by it) if it has been discussed:

    Rebellion had some notable sections of vocal harmony in it and Until It's Gone had kindof a choir thing going on.. Any other songs have some nice vocal harmony in them?

    I'm a sucker for good harmonies.

    I haven't heard the album, but I remember hearing that mike sings the intro/outro of ALITS. Mark The Graves too, but not 100% sure of that. That's as far as I know. The rest that he does is rapping I believe. But someone who heard it should confirm this.

    Review looks good. (I couldn't see the review first, but judging from the reactions, it looks ok.)

    If Pusha T was trying just a bit, he would completely destroy Mike. He's THAT good. I loved him since his verse on Kanye's "Runaway".

    Mark the Graves is a very unique song. I unfortunately didn't hear that well but even then I could tell it was a different thing all together compared to the one we have now.

    There's a song that has Mike singing quite nicely. I can't remember which song it was though. It wasn't a line in the sand. He does have vocals in that song as well but there's definitely at least one more song with him singing.

    Exactly! But it's an isolated case. Generally, if there's a rapper appearing on an LP track or remix (not to mention Fort Minor tracks), they do a good job. Rakim certainly doesn't half-ass it on "Guilty All The Same".

    I find it pretty funny how THP has more singles off it than LT and it's not even out yet! Hoping for a leak over the weekend :D.
