  1. White Noise is the only song on the Mall soundtrack that Chester had any involvement in. All the other vocals are Mike.
  2. Fallout/Roads Untraveled was either completely tape or Mike might have done the vocoder vocals from offstage like he used to do with The Requiem. Mike played guitar on the live version of Tinfoil, btw.
  3. Can someone look further into whether this is legit or not? I haven't seen an instrumental of Slow Ya Roll mentioned on Linkinpedia or any lists I've seen, but this sounds pretty clean to me (I admittedly rarely listen to the song though):
  4. Yeah, that's typical. Each track was presumably bounced as stereo with its pan settings intact, and then the resulting stereo tracks were split into dual mono files. So anything that's hard panned to one side (as is typical when you're looking at one half of a pair of double-tracked guitar parts) would end up only having audio on one side. That's why some of the drum parts and other stuff are way louder in one channel than the other too. Outside of the "dry lead vocal" tracks everything has its final pan and effects settings that appear in the album mixes, the mixes just haven't been mastered. Personally I've just been keeping the stereo tracks and combining/tossing the mono ones with all the multitracks that have come out, makes the file list less of a headache to scroll through and find what you're looking for.
  5. Backing up to this, seems like the people mentioning these particular songs (at least COG, I haven't actually seen anything about UIG) were basing their evidence off of fanmade piano stems that they may or may not have created themselves. Empty Spaces/When They Come for Me and Iridescent multitracks also leaked (and were deleted pretty quickly).
  6. That looks to me like someone had an original case but burned their own copy of the disc.
  7. Website was LPConcerts.com. It was a browser-based mashup thing sponsored by Verizon that had clips from several of the mainstage Projekt Revolution 2007 bands (but primarily LP). The mashup list was as follows: Bleed It Out vs. Makedamnsure Bleed It Out vs. Papercut Bleed It Out vs. Passion's Killing Floor Bleed It Out vs. What I've Done Faint vs. Killing Loneliness Given Up vs. Crawling Given Up vs. In the End In the End vs. Crawling In the End vs. Mama Leave Out All the Rest vs. Given Up What I've Done vs. Numb You'd basically just pick whatever sounds you wanted to mash together from Song A and Song B in each group and that combination would play back in your browser. Each mashup had the song pair's key and BPM adjusted accordingly to make them fit together (so even when a song was featured multiple times, the corresponding clips for each mashup would be different). If you were a U.S. college student, you could submit your mashups to a contest where the winner would get a private LP concert for their school. A girl from the University of Las Vegas won and this was supposed to be the show, but it was cancelled: https://lplive.net/shows/2008/20081006
  8. Nope. Not sure who actually made it but it's been around since 2005 or 2006.
  9. It was definitely added to BMI very recently, BMI work numbers are chronological based on when they were added to the database. Songwriters/their representatives can submit material to ASCAP/BMI at any time though, doesn't have to be when the song is released. I have stuff from years ago that I've just submitted to BMI within the last few months. Some of the non-album LP stuff on BMI was added years after it was released too.
  10. Mystery solved, it's a song that samples In the End: A bunch of Charles Anthony Neal II's other songwriting credits on BMI correspond to other Redbird Rip songs. He's also apparently written a bunch of stuff for the band Eaglesnake.
  11. https://lplive.net/shows/2008/20080529 Lots of pictures were posted of LPU members with the band at this performance, many with signed copies of setlists. Most were setlists from the actual performance but one was a full PR08 rehearsal setlist that had No Roads Left in it. Also, relating to this topic as a whole...holy hell does Newswire need the option to add a cut line to posts on the main page of the site. I think I could tape down my mouse, go make dinner, come back and still not have reached the bottom of the page.
  12. I'd expect another 2-3 shows in Asia to be announced yet. Malaysia, Hong Kong, probably another Japan show (Tokyo). Maybe mainland China too but I wouldn't be so sure there. Can't imagine he won't do an Australia leg after this either.
  13. It's not just a mastering issue, check out all the weird stuff with the drum sound on Given Up for example - it's like they added reverb but somehow caused phasing issues in the process or something. Why on earth is it so hard to get people to just release this stuff without fucking with it first?
  14. Drinking game: Take a shot every time Geki baselessly blames Warner for something.
  15. I almost guarantee that all of those examples you listed are indeed lossless. Songs that have minimal instrumentation, lack percussion instruments, etc. are incredibly prone to confusing algorithm-based lossy vs. lossless detection software. An example I know of is Song of the Century from Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown - you can literally rip a .wav of that track directly from the CD and any detection software you run it through will insist that it's lossy even though it isn't.
