Awful. I don't know if the whole album will be like this (hope not) but if this is the lead single, then I'll probably pass this off like the new Korn album. LP has sunk pretty darn low since HT and Meteora. I mean even the lyrics are lousy! Man...

I was an LP fan in the Hybrid Theory and Meteora days, but this is not LP anymore. IMO they should've buried the LP name after releasing Meteora and continue with Minutes To Midnight and this sh** under a different name. It's a disgrace to their older work.

LP is even further from metal than KoRn, and that's saying something.

I guess I understand where you nu-metal boys are coming from how LP changes up their style and you can't handle it. I'm really liking the new song, can't really place it, it mixes a lot of elements in it. I do kinda wish they had more rock in it, but who am I to say what they should do? Btw, this is f***ing not a pop song, go listen to that bieber crud, or kesha?....
