As people have said, and I agree - Shinoda keeps taking full control of the album, of these many noises and all-unison chorus parts, as well as overkill with the pianos. Stop trying to make everything so darn complex...Chester and everyone else including Mike is better than this album just make the darn music as it comes to you guys..this album is NOT great, it is simply good, and even that is stretching it.
You don't believe me Shinoda...just read the MAJORITY of the comments. CHESTER LEAVE IF U MUST! ...and hopefully find a better band then Dead By Sunrise also, you are a gem my friend.
