  1. Guilty All The Same was a great choice for fans like me. It certainly had me highly interested in the new raw sound and the length of it was exciting. But I totally agree that commercially there would have been way better choices, and that music video was a total disappointment. I would have probably gone with Rebellion as well, but might consider Final Masquerade too. FM imo had the most untapped potential of the record. It wouldn't have been a great picture of what the record would be, but the next singles would serve that purpose. All For Nothing could have been an exciting "familiar
  2. Is there a story behind the New Divide video on YouTube being replaced w/ a version that doesn't have the Transformers footage in it? I feel like it being a licensing thing is unlikely since they're still on Iridescent, but I have no idea
  3. I guess he figures him doing it himself in his DAW with the source is better than some rando doing the edit lol. Or maybe the label is just trying to get him to push some content and give the song legs/SEO boost.
  4. I literally have no idea what this is even when played forwards, but I have 2 guesses
  5. That quote from Mike is great, it's always nice to hear anecdotes that confirm he's the nice guy we take him for.
  6. Jay Z, Rakim, Tom Morello, Stormzy, Pusha T, Steve Aoki and Blackbear (+ production credit collab) are all pretty big names imo. Some are newer and not legacy acts, but I don't think Mike has anything against big names. If he got in the mood to make another THP album (highly unlikely but as an example), I don't think he'd hesitate to work with Metallica or Slayer or any other big name legacy act for example. I also think if he just happened to get to know Bilie, Halsey, or any contemporary big pop star, they'd absolutely collab if it worked. Not to mention, at the Chester memorial
  7. Mike could easily look like a 30ish year old to some people, not everyone knows he's in his 40s. And even if you do, does it really matter that he's making music with younger people? They are clearly offering something musically that's got him interested in collaborating. It's not like he and LP haven't collabed with contemporaries or even older acts like Chester dueting Yesterday or Rakim/Paige Hamilton/Tom Morello on THP. I think it's a bit silly to focus on age for an artistic collaboration like this. That being said, I do sometimes wonder how much Mike cares about staying rele
  8. Wastelands -> Until It's Gone. Neither are my fav song off THP, but that transition is absolute fire.
  9. Kinda weird to realize there's none on THP, but I guess not. Don't forget of course his DJ sets during THP tour where he did some scratching over a mix/mash of a lot of LP beats, if you're also interested in prominent live scratches that is: Also, my gut tells me there's some buried in Skin to Bone, but I can't make it out clearly enough to be confident lol. There are so many harsh sounds/synths there, I could definitely imagine it fitting in. Especially because I had no idea how much grit Chester was putting into some of the BG vocals until we got the ac
  10. I think it goes so hard in all the right ways lol. Easily my go-to track for testing a "party" bass-heavy system.
  11. Glad to see this take here, I was absolutely blown away with it on HT20, easily the biggest part of that release for me.
  12. I made a Valentine's day cover!

     

     

  13. Oh yeah, I really hope this is the case as well. When I say that he might not make something super serious and purpose-driven again, I'm kinda including the possibility of LP not releasing anything again. But if they do, it will 100% be a huge decision, looked at super meticulously through the lens of "is this what we want to go out with for the first time since Chester? What do we say in his absence? How do we address it?" etc. I have no sense of how much the others are writing, but yeah if they've been writing for years and are gonna be debating ideas back and forth, I'm super e
  14. No, but if LP had put it on recharged or something, I probably would remember it. I love the LGM, LITE, UIB (Money Mark), IBG and BID (Tom Swoon) remixes on that album. Just because there's a lot of fan remixes that are trash doesn't mean great ones can't come from it. As long as someone is curating and puts it in front of fans in an accessible way (Spotify release) I think it's a fun idea. After all, it's not like there aren't fans that can produce the quality of the recharged tracks, or others like Aoki track remixes or that Heavy remix from 2017.
  15. Like I said in the other thread, I don't expect serious purpose-driven work from Mike for a while. I feel like he's just kinda explored a lot of ground and now is just having fun. I'll still enjoy the music for what it is, and hopefully a project full of passion and experimentation is still in the future.
