No one's hating on the Prelude That bit was great, it's the first verse people don't seem to like (me being one of them, it's dreadful).

Holy shit, I was not expecting that.

The prelude was beautiful, then the opening...well I was stunned. The lyrics are stinky cheese, but since it's for the Olympics, I'll let it slide.

But the instrumentals...HOLY FUCK AWESOME.

So I think I loved it.

It's good. Not great, but better than Starlight/NSC. The guitar is awesome, you can't deny that. The scream at the end of the first verse too.

The breakdown was good. Cheesy ending ruined it though.

I thought Matt had lost the ability to sing at all in a high chest voice - but the scream gave me new hope

And the piano person Matt mentioned in the interview who will be playing at the closing ceremony and asked him to do the song I am sure is Laing Laing
Surely it will be Elton, he's one of the five acts with an official olympics song too.

Just heard it...I don't know. I like it for the most part but the fight, fight, fight stuff and ending is a little :/

Bring on the rest of the album!
