Also, an average of 4 minute length does nothing but worry me when it comes to them utilizing lazy song structures. I feel like it's gonna be verse/chorus/verse/chorus/solo/chorus fin, for the entire album. Just real worried about this album, and this song did not help that at all. They just can't let a song stand out with uniqueness; it always, always always has to have that "soaring" chorus, and they didn't use to do that all the time. They can have a really heavy, biting song and then have a big melodic chorus that sounds extremely out of place.

They want that Download headliner spot, and I think this is exactly why they're doing short songs with big choruses.

Night and day?
Maybe during the clean verses, but as soon as the distorted guitar kicks in, it's the same mess as usual.
