    Wrong when considered in accordance to who exactly? You? A keyboard warrior with a couple of fancy special characters in his username? Good Lord.

    Here're all my music reviews. Pray read through them and post back here telling me they're all "wrong".

    My opinion is everything that is in opposition to yours. I thought this was made clear a while ago. I merely exist as the contempt of the LPA towards the newbies. Hence the signature and the title.

    Honestly I'm still waiting on responses on the live electronics argument. Because if there's anything I love, it's arguing about subjective stances.

    The music: I like it!
    The lyrics: Not so much.

    My opinion on first singles: One Step Closer>Burn it Down>Somewhere I belong>What I've Done>The Catalyst

    My opinion of the song: possibly top 10 LP songs, easily top 15

    I'll give you a hint: My title says "RESIDENT BULLY", and upon changing my name to + / –, Derek, the admin of the site, felt the need to add this to my signature:

    "Formerly known as Empty Spaces/Sir Minus of Trollshire."

    Hi, I'm Minus. Don't take me seriously unless I'm being serious. I'll give you 5 guesses as to whether or not I've been serious these past few posts, and the first 4 don't count and I'm allowed a kidney punch if you guess wrong.

    The Catalyst > One Step Closer > Somewhere I Belong > What I've Done > Burn it Down

    Aside from the one exception (maybe two), their lead singles have generally been weaker compared to their other singles, or other tracks in their records in general.
     



  17. There's a solid guitar part with heavy flanger and delay effect.

    You know, after hearing Mike on Kevin and Bean talk about how the song could be interpreted as pop/hipster culture and how kids today like to build up the next big thing only to tear it down once it becomes popular, I was reminded of an Arcade Fire song from 2010 called Rococo that talks about the same thing:

    Rococo - Arcade Fire

    Let’s go downtown and watch the modern kids
    Let’s go downtown and talk to the modern kids
    They will eat right out of your hand
    Using great big words that they don’t understand

    They’re singing
    Rococo, Rococo, Rococo, Rococo…
    Rococo, Rococo, Rococo, Rococo…

    They build it up just to burn it back down
    They build it up just to burn it back down

    The wind is blowing all the ashes around
    Oh my dear God what is that horrible song?

    They’re singing
    Rococo, Rococo, Rococo, Rococo…
    Rococo, Rococo, Rococo, Rococo…

    They seem wild but they are so tame
    They seem wild but they are so tame
    They’re moving towards you with their colors all the same
    They want to own you but they don’t know what game
    They’re playing

    Rococo, Rococo, Rococo, Rococo
    Rococo, Rococo, Rococo, Rococo


    Well played Linkin Park. Well played.

    No wonder it sounds like its been scripted in under ten minutes. Ctrl +C, Ctrl +V is all it takes these days.
     



  20. I would like to know why some of you guys don't like Burn It Down. I want to know if I'm on the same track as other people here.
