I would just quote "waiting for the end" (and repeat another fan's note)
"Cos' even a blueprint is a gift and a curse
Cos' once you got the theory of how the thing works
Everybody wants the next thing to be just like the first...Try to catch up mother fucker". obviously this young man prone to insults has different problems than just the acoustic guitar on ATS. If he pukes while listening to music, maybe he should get treatment for a stomach bug... well for those who don't catch up (and don't get it) so be it. LP do what they wanna do, always have, if they hadn't done that, Joe Hahn would wear a cowboy hat and Mike would just play the keyboard. now that wouldn't have worked.

the catalyst...all i could say is...ZOMG, this is sooooo fucking gay.
god bless us??? REALLY??
i feel sorry for all the dumbasses that bought this album.
i actually waited until they performed at the VMA's that when i turned off the tv, walked to the bathroom, puked, then went and listened to hybrid theory to take the gayness away.
fuck linkin park's fag lovers that like this shit...
that is all.
Yes, it should have been Goddamn you instead
Just jump off the LP train because they're not going back. Catch up or nut up and fuck off.
That is all.
ask me how much i care what you think?
i lack care.
Fuck Rick Rubin, when I knew he was one of the major influences of LP change, i hated him... come back Don Gilmore!!! please!!!
My honest opinion? The album was completely and utterly terrible.
Now I don't want any of you people saying "oh you can't say its terrible just because you don't like it". Truth is, I can. Judging any kind of art, whether it is music or a painting is subjective and if you consider it terrible, then it is, for you. Others who said "oh it's cause you didn't pay attention to the lyrics". Here is another revolutionary idea, MUSIC IS NOT ALL ABOUT THE LYRICS! There is more to it, for example rhythm and beat. If you excel at one but fail at another, you haven't made a good song.
Oh and I love how some of you said that this new album is for mature audiences. What the hell is that suppose to mean? I can make the same silly argument saying that their old music was considered stronger and darker so its intended for more mature audiences, while this new stuff is too soft and intended for young Bieber fans. And since when was their old music considered childish? To even make such a statement is absurd. None of these styles (new or old) should be considered more "mature" than the other so just throw that argument away.
As someone previously said, don't fix what is not broken. Sure, LP will have new fans with their new music but as it can be clearly seen on these forums and even youtube comments, there is a lot of anger from the older fans for changing their style. There are many bands that are even older then LP that continued the same style of music for years and have always been loved for it so LP did you really have to change?
Let's spin the situation here. Let's just say Linkin Park STARTED with this album instead of Hybrid Theory. Would they be where they are now? I think not. So how about it LP? Why don't you go back to your old style of music where the original fans made you to who you are today.
I just want to close off by saying there were only two albums out in the world that I enjoyed EVERY song from. That was Hybrid Theory and Meteora. Now I love you guys but I am sad to have to say that I hope this album doesn't sell for you guys and it becomes a complete failure. Maybe then you guys will get the message on what your fans really want but until then I am not gonna buy a single LP song.
