If there is a fitting single to start off the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen soundtrack, it is this one. As mentioned on their website, this song actually came from a batch of songs they came up with for the whole cast of characters from the movie. For example, they would have a song with a working title named Optimus Prime and another named Megatron, which eventually became New Divide.

So they knocked around a few of the songs and found this one to be the most fitting of all. Rightly so, New Divide talks about a conflict, about a separation within Megatron's psyche in both metaphorical and figurative ways. The song symbolizes a union between the Fallen and Megatron, best exemplified by the line "Like a startling sign that fate has finally found me. Your voice was all I heard that I get what I deserved." This shows the level of storytelling the song has and is an example of Linkin Park's sublime songwriting.

Their execution of the song was also just as impressive. From the beginning rift to the haunting first few lines to the change in tempo and intensity for the chorus and then to the energized techno interlude. The whole song is well arranged and the flow of it fits the emotional tension and mood to a T. Underneath it all, Ray Bourdon's drums are what provide the tribal feel and also the tempo for the track. And as usual, the rest of the band (Delson's guitar, Hahn's beats, Shinoda's keys) was just as fitting.

But the star of the song is Chester's vocals. Not only do you believe the actual words he sings, which sells the story, but it also provides the main strength and power of the song itself.

I have been a long time Linkin Park fan, since the days of Hybrid Theory and even before. So its an understatement to say I was excited when I heard this new single. The electronic sound wrapped around LPs lyrics and instruments works perfectly for the style. Even beyond the song it fits well as the track for Transformers, you can tell Linkin Park perfected this one. I can't wait for the next album from Linkin Park if this is any indicator of what is to come! If you really liked this track you should search out the instrumental and "a cappella" versions they really showcase the details in the song.

I've always been a fan of Linkin Park's but New Divide is really a fantastic song. Here's to hoping they'll produce more like this!

New Divide by Linkin Park, to me, is the pinnacle of the band's second style effort. It continues and improves upon the formula started in Minutes to Midnight. If you like that album, the chances are you'll also like this song. And yes, it is the best thing to come out of the Transformers movies. There, I said it!

I know this track was orginally only a single, and probably stii is, but it was worth my dollar to download. This song is more like the stuff Linkin Park used to do. Fans of their original work shouldn't miss this one.
