Weak opening track, the best songs have already been released before album premiere, but I like it. It's like a weaker version of A Head Full Of Dreams. Bareback Symphony and Invisible are my faves - just adore both songs.

And people were telling me I am mad because I had said they better disband right before this album.

I actually like it more than I thought, it grew rapidly on me, and even though they can do better, it still is pretty great,
I hope for an other 180 turn for the next record, with a more organic instrumental based sound though. Because some of these chipmunk sounds annoy the f out of me :lol:

The album is actually quite good after a few plays. "Good Goodbye" is still my fave. As much as i would love some 'harder' tracks, i'm still happy with the end result.

Ermmm... nah. When I heard the song for the first time, I was sure he sings "...bareback symphony". I was like "WTF, did they really name a song in that way? :o ". And then I realised I was sooo wrong :lol:

Current favorites: Sharp Edges, Talking To Myself and Sorry For Now. Real grower of an album for me.

Great album as a whole with no obvious single highlights. (although I love Battle symphony)
Many miles many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts many years have unraveled
Leading up to today

I saw them live on Tuesday and the album tracks they performed sound so much better live.
Talking To Myself sounds better with live instruments, Good Goodbye sounds better with Mike doing two verses by himself, Battle Symphony sounds better, Sharp Edges aounds better live acoustic, One More Light sounds more emotional live, Heavy sounds better live without Kiiara :lol: Can they please record this as live album :lol:

I just realised they performed 60% of the album on my date :lol:

BREAKING NEWS: Chester Bennington dead. :o :(

I mean i wasn't a huge Linkin Park fan but this has taken me by surprise nonetheless.

R.I.P. Chester <3

The title track is an amazing song, it's so much better than "Heavy".

I listened to this album, and although I don't think it's a patch on most of their previous material I found the title track really poignant. In fact, so many of their songs are about death and morbidity!

For me, this one will always be their Made in Heaven (but released before Chesters death). Album title, its soft and a bit melancholic sound, lyrics - it's like a final chapter of LP excistence, tribute to Chester, a sad goodbye with fans.
Hardcore fans, music journalists can hate this release, but it is a very solid pop/rock record

I was glad until I noticed they cut it short for a commercial break, the actual tribute video aired for like 3 seconds :evil:

I didn't notice that, they even showed a clip of the 2010 MTV VMA performance of Linkin Park before showing a picture of Chester when I watched it live.

That clip was just the beginning of what was supposed to be a big tribute video :(
