Composition

"Lies Greed Misery" is said to "highlight the band’s ability to play with genres such as hip-hop, it seems that this is as heavy as it gets."[1] AltSounds states that the song has a "buzzing authoritative energy that you can’t help getting caught up in."[2] Billboard says that "thick bass wobbles and programmed drums offer a bold new look for Linkin Park, as Bennington's screeching is choked out by the static." and even makes a reference to Skrillex due to the electronic beats throughout the song.[3]

Reception

Loudwire states that "tracks like ‘Lies Greed Misery’ and ‘Victimized’ go down like bitter pills." and comments on Shinoda's rapping, calling it "hard hitting."[4] Rolling Stone says that the band has found its greatest inspiration in pop-wise hip-hop in this track, saying that "Lies Greed Misery" is "a sweet-and-sour gem, is guaranteed to make you jump." [5]
