I enjoyed this pack a good amount. I played drums on all of them, and they were all mostly fun. While I was expecting Numb to be way more fun(the beat I thought was in much of the song was only played for a bit), but Waiting for the End was way more fun than I was expecting (and I was looking forward to it too). That song had a lot of variety.

In order of hardest to easiest (IMO):
In the End, Waiting for the End, One Step Closer, Crawling, Somewhere I Belong, Numb, What I've Done

In order of most to least fun (IMO obv):
Waiting for the End, Somewhere I Belong, One Step Closer, In the End, What I've Done, Crawling, Numb

As you saw, I threw One Step Closer in there for comparison. Keep in mind that ATS and Meteora are my two favorite LP albums, and I like all of these songs a lot except for Crawling (I think it's decent).

The LP pack is brilliant on vocals. :D

My favourite song would be In the End. For the first two minutes you're covering both vocal parts, with no more than half a second to catch your breath.

Hardest song is definitely Waiting For the End, featuring pitched rapping (!) and some deceptive harmonies.

There are a lot of endurance vocals here, and some really satisfying high notes if you can hit them. Just be careful not to hurt yourself... endurance vocals and high notes should never mix.

Loads of fun on drums, I haven't played WID or WFTE yet but I know they're good from GH. In The End is also really good to play with two bass pedals :D

Vocals are excellent, I'm only ever going to play these songs with harmonies because switching between Mike and Chester's vocals is how it's meant to be sung.

Keys are simple but fun, much like It's My Life they're the kind of songs where I could learn them on Expert Pro Keys quickly and then play them on a real piano.

The only thing I don't understand - In The End's key part is all in one octave apart from the very last measure, so why the hell did Harmonix chart the entire chart at the top half of the keyboard and then just loop the ascending notes back onto the same keys?!

It's just the way their charting methodology is. They probably didn't see any need to shift the track since the rest of the song is one octave, or they felt then didn't have enough time to shift the track (since notes that aren't within the displayed octave still get displayed, just way off to the side).

I loved this pack, of course, being a huge LP fan. I did voxkeys and it was really fun, but I need to jump on drums for sure. My sister came home late last night in time to sing In the End with me and I almost died in delight at the harmony aspect of me rapping Mike's lyrics while she belts out Chester's. One of the greatest DLC packs ever; I hope we see more from them.

My double bass just happened to come in the mail the same day I bought In The End and I have to say I'm glad it did. I'm surprised they charted bass that fast.

Despite the fact that the keys part is entirely in one octave (before the ending), the song isn't in C major, which is the only time you can even use all of two octaves.

The problem is that the lowest note in the song is a B. They couldn't have shifted the chart down an octave, because the lowest note on the keyboard unit is a C. Thus they had to use the keyboard position they used, they really had no choice.

It would have been awkward to shift the ending of the song first down an octave (the low B is not in that part so they could have done that) and then up again. It would just make the song inconsistent. In my opinion, there's no other way they could have charted it that would make sense.
