    Well everything sounds cooler live of course. I didn't like Burn it Down until I heard it live at their concert I went to.

    It just makes it feel dragged out. Makes it unnecessarily long. I usually don't mind songs over 5 minutes unless they don't really need to be that long. I like build up but a minute and a half of just build up? And it's basically the same, what, 5 notes, repeated like 4 times, just heavier each time. Should have been its own track then, like The Summoning.

    More like:

    Heavy riff introduction
    Heavy riff repeated with more distortion
    Apocalyptic Piano
    Build up of palm-muted heavy riff
    Harmonic Rhythm guitar #1
    Harmonic Rhythm guitar #1+2
    Fast-paced riff (combined with rhythm guitars) all at once
    Then it goes into verse 1...

    But sure. Let's just say it's a boring minute and a half of the same riff over and over ad-nauseam.

    To me it doesn't feel dragged out at all - it makes the entire song that follows a satisfying result of the monstrous build-up. The introduction gives the song substance.

    Yup to all of that.
    When I first heard the song, the buildup made me believe that song is gonna be epic. I wasn't disappointed. The song just wouldn't be the same without that buildup.

    I guess you wanted Empty Spaces to have the entire intro to When They Come for Me then...plus the WTCFM intro uses only two notes in the entire intro. Every synth plays a C# or C.

    Guilty all the Same takes 1:35 for the song to start.
    Blackout clocks in at 56 seconds for its intro
    When They Come for Me 54 seconds
    Robot Boy takes exactly one minute to get to actual lyrics (not counting the oohs here and there)
    No More Sorrow has a 1:06 intro. Trash that song, LP. Absolute garbage.
    Burn it Down is 45 seconds, that's pretty long. They repeat a lot of notes in that intro. What a trash song.
    Somewhere I Belong at 42 seconds, that's only 18 seconds less than a minute.
