  1. Haha true that, although I've had it on repeat for about 14 hours now (mainly skipping through BID, LGM) That's easily 10 plays...
  2. I get that it's heavy (that's not why I don't like it, I LOVE Qwerty) - but to me it's a mess of a song :\ Idunno, it hasn't grown on me...
  3. After a few listens through: 01. Lost In The Echo - 10/10 - outstanding song, definitely my favourite of the album 02. In My Remains - 8/10 - I really enjoyed this song, thought the beat was really nice 03. Burn It Down - 6/10 - after hearing it hundreds of times I'm a bit sick of it, but think it's a good choice for a single 04. Lies Greed Misery - 8/10 - I actually enjoyed this song quite a lot also... 05. I'll Be Gone - 7/10 - probably going to be a single, nothing that really jumps out at me but it was a good song 06. Castle Of Glass - 9/10 - excellent song, Mike's singing and harmonising with Chester = thumbs up! 07. Victimized - 2/10 - honestly a waste of space I think; don't get why people are so into this, it's so disjointed... :\ 08. Roads Untravelled - 8/10 - I think this was a nice slow song, the lyrics were quite heartfelt 09. Skin To Bone - 7/10 - interesting song, a bit repetitive but has a great beat 10. Until It Breaks - 5/10 - didn't find myself enjoying this one a lot, it was all over the place... 11. Tinfoil - 7/10 - not much to say for an instrumental, but not as epic as some previous instrumentals (Session)... 12. Powerless - 8/10 - nice end to the album, I enjoyed this too
  4. Just so everyone knows, us Aussies get the official album a few days before everyone else
  5. Thanks for the release! Second link is very broken though :\ EDIT: fixed now, thanks

    Anyone else able to confirm that this was when Pictureboard was actually played? http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/linkin-park/...n-5bd56bb4.html At any rate, would love to be able to hear it sometime if it's as good as Adam claimed it is, however... fat chance I guess... About LPU11, the more I listen to it the more I like it - and 'Slip' is awesome

    They've reset all old LPU accounts to have the same password as email. A bit dodgy if you ask me, but you can change it once you're logged in.

    I'm quite confident with my audio formats as well since I'm a bit of an audiophile - however with that said... ... chances are we'll never know who's right here Hell, you probably know more about this than me! Think about it this way: wouldn't you rather a download with proper 320kbps of the new songs and upscales of old ones than what's being offered now for the same price? I'm sure with proper remastering the 320kbps rips of older songs could possibly sound better than their lower-bitrate counterparts...

    The spectrum analysis doesn't seem to correlate with an upscale: http://cl.ly/BrTN

    And yet they still managed to include two HT-era demos on the 320kbps 'A Decade Underground', as well as two songs of that era on the LPU9 CD which was also HQ? EDIT: I'd like to mention, by the way, that I'm not really trying to get into an argument here; just trying to express why I feel disappointed with the digital download...

    You're looking at this the wrong way. Don't think of it in terms of MP3s or lossy files, think of it in terms of the original audio source... Which was most likely tape. Even cassette tapes can be played through a soundboard and losslessly ripped! And, therefore, the lossless rip could be transcoded into a high-quality lossy file, e.g. 320kbps MP3.

    How could they not have a copy of the raw files used for recording? Besides, the mere fact that they have a physical CD release would mean (hopefully) that the initial files were lossless before burned...

    Ask the mods, I'm sure they'd love to!

    Am I the only one disappointed at the 192kbps quality for the digital download? I thought having a lossless digital download was enough... but even A Decade Underground was 320kbps!
