  1. Bubblegum pop is an actual specific genre of music, one that OML doesn't even really come close to. It's definitely a pop album (with stuff like TTM leaning a bit more towards pop rock I guess), but it isn't bubblegum pop for sure.
  2. I've always seen Brad as more of a producer than a straight guitarist. Like, he's not the most technical player out there, but he's pretty good at figuring out what a song needs rather than just trying to be flashy all the time.
  3. I feel like this was super hyped before it happened and then once it happened, it was kind of underwhelming. Maybe it was because this was a one off thing and not a whole "HT in full" tour, but I feel like once it happened, everyone kind of just went "oh alright".
  4. The live clips used for the Ballad Medley and the OSC outro. The outro from Faint might also be from Monterrey, but we haven't figured it out for sure yet.
  5. Here's the set in FLAC and without the metronome https://mega.nz/#!5Lp1wABB!7waMOivC-9tyGvdBP-z8WauUFjEV0_whcdK4f_vANjY I can split the songs too, but I won't be able to post it until tomorrow lol
  6. Pretty sure those are just from the playback stems that got released a bit ago
  7. Song selection on OML Live is fine IMO. Only complaint is I wouldn't have minded having COG or WFTE in there, but otherwise I think it's a pretty solid tracklist. Every OML song the band did, the new versions of Crawling and LOATR, and then the big singles.
  8. The demo verse was done 4 times off the top of my head. New York, Hong Kong, Vienna, and Silver Spring as part of Lift Off.
  9. Well, this is the end of the European leg of the tour, guys. Luxembourg City, it's your turn. Last night in Ludwigsburg wasn't without its surprises. New additions to the set like 'Nobody Can Save Me' and 'Prove You Wrong' continue to impress, while Post Traumatic cuts like 'Hold It Together' and 'World's On Fire' showcase Mike's increased confidence on stage (seriously Mike, keep these tracks around for the Linkin Park comeback). The real surprise came during the 'Lift Off' jam, with the first verse of 'Nobody's Listening' coming back for the first time since the Minutes To Midnight tour in 2007. Mike is definitely pulling out some deep cuts as the tour winds down, between 'Dedicated' and 'Nobody's Listening'. Anything seems to be on the table. Much like Ludwigsburg, Mike hasn't ever actually been to Luxembourg City, so let's just talk about some highlights from this leg of the tour instead. One of the most surprising nights of the tour was in London, where Mike not only debuted 'Nobody Can Save Me', which has since become a staple of the set, but also a stripped down version of 'Battle Symphony' (which I would love to see come back) and an incredibly emotional performance of 'One More Light', featuring their respective album collaborators, Jon Green and Eg White. 'Lift Off' also came back in full force from its debut in Silver Spring, with Mike using it as a sort of hip hop medley. It's featured parts of 'Step Up', 'High Voltage', 'Hands Held High', and 'Nobody's Listening' in its short lifespan on this leg of the tour. Could we see a different verse tonight? The 'Sorry For Now' demo verse was used when it made its live debut in Silver Spring, and its been a minute since we've seen that verse... The last (headlining) night of a tour has always proved to be fun. Singapore saw the debuts of fan favorites 'High Road' (which has become quite the rarity) and 'Hold It Together'. Vienna had the infamous "Vienna four" with 'In Stereo', 'Cigarettes', 'Until It Breaks', AND 'It's Goin' Down' all making their debuts. What a wild show that was. Not to be outdone, Silver Spring had the live debut of 'Lift Off', which only just reappeared. We could see any number of things tonight. 'Can't Hear You Now' has been teased a few times, even getting rapped a capella on stage. Could we finally see it get its debut? Not to mention 'Place To Start', 'Invisible', and 'Sharp Edges', the only songs played in the US not played on this leg yet. And how about the remaining Post Traumatic songs? 'Brooding' might be pretty unlikely, but I know we'd love to see 'Nothing Makes Sense Anymore' and 'Promises I Can't Keep'. Who's going to the show? Mark (Hahninator) is finishing his run in Europe with this show before coming back home, so say hey if you see him! After this, Mike finished off the Post Traumatic tour with two nights in Tel Aviv.

  10. The second to last show of the European leg of the Post Traumatic cycle is here! Mike's taking the show to Ludwigsburg this time. Last night's show in Amsterdam was definitely a fun one! Starting off with a solid run that showcased Mike's hip hop strengths with tracks like 'Petrified', 'Watching As I Fall', and 'It's Goin' Down' (which featured a completely new chorus!) setting the tone for the rest of the night. The 'Lift Off' jam reached peak capacity, going over seven minutes as Mike included parts of 'High Voltage', 'Step Up', 'Hands Held High' and gave Dan a drum solo. The encore was just as wild, though, with 'Nobody Can Save Me' followed by the tour debut of 'Cigarettes', and Mike even gave us a little shoutout! What a guy. Mike's never actually been to Ludwigsburg before this show, so let's just take a quick little look at his German stops over this past month (lord knows there's no shortage of them). Starting off in Berlin with a fan coming up on stage to play piano on 'In The End' and the wonderful Jennifer Weist coming on stage for a surprise 'A Place For My Head', Mike started his run of shows in Germany with a bang. The next show in Bremen got one of only two performances (so far) of 'Until It Breaks' on this leg of the tour and, more surprisingly, the live debut of the bonus track 'Prove You Wrong', which has quickly become a staple of the set. The surprises continued in Hannover with Don Broco once again joining Mike for 'A Place For My Head' to close the show and the first verse of 'Hands Held High' making an appearance during the bridge of 'Sorry For Now'. Oberhausen is where things got really wild, though, with FOUR tour debuts: the piano version of 'Numb', the iconic duo 'Robot Boy' and 'World's On Fire', AND 'High Road' all finally made their way to stage. We also got the first verse and chorus of 'High Voltage' during the bridge of 'Sorry For Now'. Things toned down a bit in Hamburg, but we still got a new addition to the set with the piano version of 'Burn It Down' returning, featuring guest vocals from Yvonne Catterfeld. Mike took a bit of a break from Germany, but came back strong in Munchen with the tour debut of 'Lift Off', which has only been played once before and featured the demo verse of 'Lift Off', the chorus of 'Step Up' and the first verse of 'High Voltage'. Hopefully Mike keeps up with the last few shows in Germany tonight! As last night proved, the tour ending does not mean there's no chance for new songs to be added. Mike said it himself, he's trying to mess with us and that spreadsheet we retweeted a little bit ago, and there's quite a few ways for him to do that. There's still 3 songs from the US tour he hasn't played on this leg: 'Place To Start', 'Invisible', and 'Sharp Edges'. Could we see any of those come back in these last few shows? Who's going to the show? Mark's taking a break for tonight, but he'll be back for the final show in Luxembourg City. After that, Mike does two nights in Tel Aviv to close out the Post Traumatic cycle.

  11. The last leg of the Post Traumatic cycle is quickly coming to an end, but we're not quite there yet! Amsterdam, you're up! Mike's been getting pretty wild with the set, a little more than usual. The last show in Prague featured a pretty interesting encore opener of 'Robot Boy' and 'Castle Of Glass', the first time 'Robot Boy' has been played without 'World's On Fire' after it, as well as the new "Lift Off jam" as Mike likes to call it, this time featuring the demo verse of 'Lift Off', the first verse and chorus of 'High Voltage', and the first verse of 'Hands Held High'. Not to mention new standout tracks like 'Nobody Can Save Me' and 'Prove You Wrong' in the set, Mike shows no sign of slowing down as the tour winds down! Amsterdam hasn't had to go too long without Mike showing up. Most recently, Linkin Park played there during the One More Light European Tour, which featured a rare 'Sharp Edges' performance as well as 'From The Inside' in the new "heavy rotation" slot. Before that, Mike and Chester did a stripped down performance with a fairly off the cuff piano rendition of 'What I've Done' and the now iconic piano version of 'Crawling'. As the tour comes to a close, there's still a shot at some rarer stuff getting tossed in. The final shows of the tour usually have some nice surprises, so we may just get the full version of 'Can't Hear You Now' (which Mike has only done a verse of a capella), or maybe some of the rarer tracks from prior tours that we haven't seen yet on this leg. 'Cigarettes' anyone? Who's going to the show? Mark (Hahninator) is sticking around until the end of the tour, so if you see him there, be sure to say hi! After this, Mike stops in Ludwigsburg and then wraps up the European tour with Luxembourg City.

  14. Mike sure loves Germany it seems. Show #5 of the Post Traumatic European Tour just so happens to also be show #5 in Germany of the Post Traumatic European Tour. Hamburg, you're up! The tour has been pretty wild so far. The last show in Oberhausen had one of the strongest starts we've seen yet with a run of 'Welcome', 'In Stereo', 'Hold It Together' (with its new extended outro), and 'When They Come For Me'. The fun didn't stop there as Mike rapped the first verse and chorus of 'High Voltage' over the bridge of 'Sorry For Now' and we saw FOUR tour debuts: the piano version of 'Numb', the fantastic duo of 'Robot Boy' and 'World's On Fire', and the ever elusive 'High Road' which was the second time that song had been performed in 35 shows. Don Broco also joined Mike to close out the show with 'A Place For My Head'. Mike is no stranger to Hamburg, and it hasn't been too long since he's been there. The promo tour for One More Light took him and Chester there for two of the stripped down performances where the two of them would play piano versions of new songs like 'Heavy' and 'Battle Symphony' alongside classics like 'Crawling'. Prior to that, Linkin Park had played in Hamburg in 2014, twice during the A Thousands Suns tour (the latter of which was the site of the 4th LPU summit where the iconic cover of Adele's 'Rolling In The Deep' made its debut), 2007, 2003, and 3(!) times in 2001 (the first of which was also the band's first show in Germany). Mike also took the Fort Minor tour to the city in 2005. We still have yet to really nail down what Mike is gonna play on any given night, but what we do know is that he's gonna be joined by Yvonne Catterfield tonight for a song. Don Broco is also opening for Mike again, so we could see another performance of 'A Place For My Head'. On top of that, there's a few songs Mike's already played that we haven't seen on this tour yet, namely Post Traumatic tracks 'Place To Start', 'Lift Off', and 'Watching As I Fall'. The latter was soundchecked a few shows ago, so we may see that one sooner rather than later. There's also the rarer songs from the US tour like 'Kenji' and 'Cigarettes' in his arsenal. Anything is possible at this point. Who's going to the show? After this, Mike finally visits the rest of Europe with shows in Paris, London, and Budapest.

  15. My biggest issue with Primo is that there's no way it would work on Living Things (sonically it fits better on ATS, but not so much thematically). It'd be such a jarring sonic and tonal shift. That's not to say IBG is better than Primo (they're both doing very different things and do their own respective things very well), but as far as putting together an album, IBG is a better choice than Primo
