    It's just so beautiful and epic, with nice lyrics, great drum work, cool synths and nice gentle guitars. ATS is my favourite album but TLTGYA is my favourite song by them. It's what I hoped LT would be like.

    Edit: Autocorrect ruined the title.

    You spelled "Empty Spaces" wrong.

    It's probably their most mature and "deep" track ever, and some of the most intelligent and soulful drumming we've heard out of Rob.

    I've always enjoyed that last ballad on each CD (exception: THP) It is a pretty solid track imo

    Definitely a stand-out track, but I seem to appreciate it a little less than most people here. To me it's just a tad bit long, and the intro is a little boring. It could have used some variation in guitar/bass or something new besides the (incredibly awesome) drum and solo parts in the bridge/outro.

    It's a fantastic song and one of the best in their discography. Between this and Hands Held High, some of the best lyrics from the band has come from MTM. That will always be LP's underrated masterpiece to me.

    Fixed the thread title.

    I think TLTGYA has some of LP's deepest lyrics. The first half of the song can be a little boring for me sometimes though.

    The last 3 minutes of the song are absolutely amazing and closes the album beautifully, in my opinion.

    It's one of their best songs for sure. I love the drumming, the melody. It's Linkin Park at their best.

    When I first heard it I was blown away. It's absolutely light years ahead of most things they'd done before then, in terms of maturity and complexity.

    Basically it's a fantastically well made song, it's clever and meaningful lyrically and the instrumentation fits the mood perfectly, it is subtle, intricate and builds up into an epic climax. Rob really shines on this track.

    I can't vote it as their best ever, as it's tied with a few others as my favorite and it depends what mood I'm in as to which I prefer.

    I'm so glad I was able to see it live, cos I'm not sure it will be brought back anytime soon (although I would love to see it return). It was amazing.

    I think until that "explosion" comes (and some bits after it, just meander on for too long. Its like I wait for the song to get interesting and when it finally does I don't even bother with it anymore. Of course this is just guessing on my part, but I think that if either there were more changes in the song or the song was of a shorter length (like 3-4 minutes perhaps) it might be more to my liking.
