Lost is an entirely unreleased track that anticipates the planned April release of the 20th anniversary celebration edition of Meteora.
2003: after Hybrid Theory, Linkin Park unveils Meteora and still do not know that their work will not be a meteor and will consecrate them to music history.
On Linkin Park’s website you can find these words
congratulations on solving all our puzzles and welcome to our warehouse
As you know I love puzzles!
I don’t know if in the days during which the countdown appeared before the release of Lost you also tried to solve: clicking on the CD case a word game to guess appeared.
Overall Lost was really a surprise, and honestly hearing Chester Bennington‘s voice in a totally unreleased track triggered a number of seesaw thoughts for me.
Among other things, the lyrics are particularly striking:
… a scar somewhere down inside of me
Something I can not repair ...
… I’m trapped in yesterday
Where the pain is all I know …
… I’m lost in these memories …
But then, considering the official tweet set on the profile, I agreed to consider Lost as a “time capsule.”
In a less metaphorical sense, now the term time capsule is used to refer to an external hard drive for wireless storage, but it also remains the classic “time capsule” we are used to seeing in American movies and beyond.
For example, there is a capsule in the Well Room of the Torre Ghirlandina at the Civic Museum of Modena, which in this video tells us various interesting facts about it
What would you like to put in a time capsule?
According to the International Time Capsule Society there would be more than 10 thousand time capsules in the world. Only one in a thousand is found.
On Focus you can see a gallery with the nine most wanted capsules in the world.
They are lost.
Linkin Park, however, made us find their time, their sense, and they put Anime in it.
Anime アニメ as Kasabake explains on the blog As Circles in the Water comes from “animēshon,” Japanese transliteration of the English word “animation.”
Unfortunately I have huge gaps in the subject, although I find the word Anime poetic and intense, maybe you would like to add something about this wonderful subject?
In the meantime, enjoy your viewing and listening
In an interview Mike Shinoda stated that Lost was not included on the Meteora album because of the sound being too similar to Numb.
What do you think?
