  1. Damn, that was awesome! I learned some things even though I thought I read everything that is available about LP. Good job.
  2. Actually Hybrid Theory EP was a part of LPU so it kinda counts as 'Step Up' was played.
  3. Good point! Unfortunately, you may be right.
  4. I've just written about it on shoutbox but what if this is the song from an album with some unreleased songs with Chester that the band is going to release? I think before they come back to releasing normal stuff with a new vocalist or Mike as a lead singer, they'd like to release the last album with Chester on vocals. I suppose they have a lot of stuff that they've never released and they could easily make one or two albums with Chester. Fans would love this and it'd be a great point to start something new without Chester. If this is a new song with, let's say, Mike on vocals, why Chester would be there? My theory kind of makes sense and I hope I'm right.
  5. I don't even bother to reply to his comments. He wants to know every detail about MTM Tour and listens to every DSP available but when I asked one thing about the live shows from this period, he had a problem with that. I don't care about him because I got used to the fact that he's mean, just found it quite funny.
  6. As I said, I knew about the whole situation but I just didn't know how people got to know about it. Thanks for the reply though. Do you have the photo? I know it's maybe not important but this kind of stuff is always really interesting for me. Even if you don't have it, thanks for the clarification as I didn't have a clue about the situation at all.
  7. Did the rehearsal setlists in 2008 leaked or something? How do we know that No Roads Left was on there? Obviously I've heard this story before but I've never really thought how the information became available.
  8. Initially I also heard only Mike's voice but after a few listens I noticed Chester at the very end of the song when the song title is repeated several times. I'm not sure if that's him, could be Mike's higher vocals as well.
  9. I was also thinking about it. Is a posthumous Chester's album in preparation? Or is it just a leak from someone that is close to the band? That's interesting because I've never seen such a leak before. All the leaks that came out of nowhere were tracks from some kind of promo CDs (like She Couldn't or Xero Rapology tracks) but the origin of this leak is mysterious for me - it was totally unexpected and odd.
  10. I think that's not Chester but simply Mike's higher vocals. Mike proved that he can sound a little bit similar to Chester, like in "Waiting for Tomorrow" or "Over Again" backing vocals. The background vocals sounds a lot like Mike, in my opinion.
  11. @Nisshin, who confirmed it to be legitimate? I've never doubted it but it's always cool to be sure. One more thing - I think that a demo of the song was created at the same time as Welcome, which is at the beginning of 2015. Mike mentioned "Last Straw" in making of Welcome LPTV so I think "What Are You Worth" can be more advanced version of "Last Straw".
  12. You've all misinterpreted me. I'm extremely grateful to Mike for keeping everything alive. He helps the fans and music that he's been releasing is great. I will repeat it again - Mike is my biggest inspiration and idol. I simply don't like one little thing about his actions and I'm being attacked for my opinion. Mike is not obligated to write songs about Chester and I still like his solo songs, even though they're not directly about Chester. I don't know what to say more about this case but I think that you are all too sensitive, guys. Every critical word about something related with Linkin Park is a reason to attack. C'mon, nobody is perfect and even though I love Mike and his music, I can express a negative opinion about him or his songs.
  13. Okay, guys - I want to make things clear. Someone said that I would be attacked by the fanbase for criticising Mike but honestly, I don't deserve to be attacked in any way. Mike has always been my biggest idol, Linkin Park has always been my favourite band, I literally love them. Look, you don't like everything in your siblings or in your parents but you still love them, despite all these drawbacks that they have. So even though I like everything that Mike releases, I can express my thoughts about what I don't like in his actions. And I simply don't like that he hasn't released any song about Chester yet and I won't change my mind. But he is still my idol and my inspiration, no matter what. I just don't like some tiny things in him and that's nothing wrong. One more thing - I don't think that Mike treated Chester as the business only. I've never said this. Mike was a friend of Chester and nothing ever will change it. However, basing only on his solo songs, I don't see it in any song. The first tracks on Post Traumatic were supposed to be about the most traumatic and the most tragic moments. And even on the very first song, the lyrics are about his own feelings. Then we go to the loss of his career and other stuff. It seems like there is no place to remember Chester. You know... I don't think that it's true - I feel like Mike really misses Chester but I just cannot understand why he's never wanted to expressed it in a song. And please, don't get me wrong. Post Traumatic is one of the best albums I've ever heard and it's full of emotional stuff. I just don't like Mike's attitude towards Chester's passing in some songs. He could have expressed his loss differently, at least in some tracks.
  14. That is extremely disappointing. I've already expressed that a couple of times but I will say it again - I don't like the fact that almost none of the tracks from Post Traumatic are about Chester. I mean... Mike is not obligated to write about him but it should be kind of natural. Well, okay - we have "Looking For An Answer" but it's not even an official studio track. Mike's already released 18 songs since Chester's passing and there is no song about him. When I was listening to "What The Words Meant" today, I was almost certain that it's about Chester, about the lyrics that he wrote and how they were working on the songs together. And it was such a nice feeling, really! However, when I read on Mike's twitter that these lyrics are not about Chester, the song got a lot worse in my eyes. You know, I felt that it's finally THIS song and when I saw the news, it was like... just disappointing, yeah. And don't get me wrong - I love Post Traumatic and I love every song Mike releases but it's a bit strange that he just hasn't wanted to express his loss in any song. Okay, almost every song on the album is about a loss in a way but I feel like there is no song about Chester as a person - why he was a friend of Mike, why he misses him, etc. I think that Mike on Post Traumatic focues mainly on Mike's own thoughts and feelings as well as his career. I'm not telling that he doesn't miss Chester but I can't understand why he hasn't expressed it yet in any of his solo songs.
