    I was driving home today and Wake came up on my iPod. As I listened, I realized that it could be made into a really awesome song. The music is really powerful, I wish it lasted longer than what it does. What do you think?

    That's what I thought when I first heard the track. Just epic. Sometimes I wonder if the band is holding back on their potential because they're afraid that the vast majority of fans won't enjoy it; or because they spend too much time being nitpicky over ONE song.

    I, for one, appreciate their perfectionist approach.

    i have to agree. Wake IMO had the potential to be a full lenght track, so did A.06.

    but i understand with A.06 that it was only recordered quickly for an advertising campaign on TV to promote the release of Meteora.. Astat will know the full story behind A.06

    Seems like their shortest songs are always potentially their best in some sorts, or at least could become full-length songs without hesitation.

    A.06 was basically turned into the bridge of NMS. It's the same style, just NMS is less notes.

    A.06 wasn't made for a commercial, it was a song they said they just couldn't make complete during the songwriting part of Meteora. It WAS used in the web commercial from LP.com with the motorcycles and the girl with the gasmask, but I don't think it was ever used on TV. The Somewhere I Belong promotional snippet was used for all the Meteora promotion I believe.

    I think Wake should've have been a 30 min instrumental with a full Symphony Orchestra.
