Wow, just wow. I hope David Bowie is proud.
I'm still not convinced by Ahead Of Ourselves, because Trent's singing reminds me too much of Getting Smaller and somehow some effects of Saul William's Break (a great song produced by Reznor in the Year Zero era), but for the rest? Unsettling, mesmerising, addictive shit that flows perfectly.

First of all, I'm a big fan of Shinoda, I think it takes courage to be so frank about his hard times. I am grateful for the fact that he released new music, but I didn't love the Post Traumatic album as much as I wished to.
