Living Things is the first album I will not buy.
I am more of a rhythm and groove guy which I don't feel on this album. Songs like By Myself, With You, Forgotten, One Step Closer, Don't Stay, Hit the Floor have a tangible vibe and groove in my opinion. The new album still has a few parts that tend to groove but it's mostly just a verse through many songs. It all sounds very linear, 1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4-...-ish, and way too harmonic for my taste. I like dissonance and other stuff that was…Continue

So 2 days until Burn it Down is released. And lots of more info.
This new album caught my attention again after I wasn't really into the pre-release info and hype of M2M and ATS, not knowing what they would sound like.

On tuesday it's LP again, in Hamburg, music city! LP for the 5th time.
I will probably write another "review" like I did last year (check older blog posts) and maybe even compare the concerts in terms of what I felt was great/bad last time.
So, everybody who'll be attending as well: see ya there!

I've been waiting for the next shows to be announced for Germany but I didn't think it'd happen this quick.
Bought tickets right away.
I'm curious what might have changed since the last show and what's waiting for me. Maybe some of my points in my last blog post were acknowledged (I guess that wouldn't happen :D) - I will write another post about the show just like last time.
