Cool. Based on the cover and first single, I think this is going to be a bit different for them. Hopefully I'll like it. I ended up really liking This is War.

Also, track list..

1. Birth
2. Conquistador
3. Up In The Air
4. City Of Angels
5. The Race
6. End Of All Days
7. Pyres Of Varanasi
8. Bright Lights
9. Do Or Die
10. Convergence
11. Northern Lights
12. Depuis Le Début

This Is War had some really nice moments, but man, those electronic elements did not work for me in the first single.

They felt a little out of place to me as well but usually when a band I like tries something different I try and hold off judgement until I've given it a good amount of listens, just because I'm not the best when it comes to first impressions. I'm hoping it'll grow on me. Plus I'm guessing there's much better stuff on the record.

I didn't think the electronics felt out of place, I just think it sounded different. I thought one of the drum fills before a chorus was out of place though.

Anyone got a link to the single?

This Is War and A Beautiful Lie had some really good moments, when they went all out and created these huge soaring choruses. The more somber and quiet moments weren't as interesting to me. If this album has massive, catchy sing-a-long choruses, I'll be happy.

I used to feel the same but some of the more buildy (for lack of a better word) quiet songs like A Modern Myth and Alibi have become some of my favourite songs they've done. There's still a few on each album I don't care much for though.

Haha, I can't even remember what those songs go like off the top of my head. Whenever I listen to their albums I usually just skip through to the ones I like.

If you got a hold of the Hurricane version with Kanye, that was one of their best tracks.

I've heard it and it's alright. I'm very particular with this band ha. I know exactly what I want from them and what I like and dislike about their sound. I like their big anthemic choruses and dislike their slower, more ballad-y songs. Hopefully this new album has lots of the former and not much of the latter. I'm sure I'll like some of it, at least.

I can't wait for this. Excitement level is at 100 and I'm not really sure why.

No where near as good as TIW. I never thought Up in the Air would be one of the highlights, haha.

Damn, that doesn't sound good. I still wanna listen to this as I do enjoy TIW, but I'm not in any particular hurry. Are there lots of big anthemic 'Kings and Queens' type songs? That's pretty much the only type of songs I like from these guys.
