i can say that the band has undergone a great transition from their previous albums, but i can't say that this album sucks...this album is still awesome even though it's quite different compared to the other LP albums...come on guys give the guys some credit for their hard work... i love the catalyst and waiting for the end!!!! LP still rocks you know!!! PEACE!!!
To be honest with the album, I haven't bought and haven't heard of most of the songs. but simply going off the songs that have hit the mainstream (Catalyst, Waiting for the End, Wretches and Kings), it doesn't sound good. On top of that, I've heard the rest of the album contains only half songs without any lyrics, more like experiments.
The only song remotely listenable is Catalyst, and that sounds more like a techno based Linkin Park tribute band. Whilst I understand that bands change over time, Linkin Park has gone in the wrong direction, straying away from their original roots to what seems like appease the mainstream fans.
I, as a fan since the beginning, am disappointed in the new style, showing a lack of the hybridism of Hybrid Theory and Meteora that started it all.
A Thousand Sun is Great album and it will stay that way no matter what u say. One more thing, u have to know that if u dont like something doesnt make it Suck or Bad.
No name said:For all you guys who adored LP so much and appreciate ATS
I'm a fan of Lp , I like them but it doesn't mean that I have to appreciate all what they do, if you love their charisma it doesn't mean that you have to appreciate all what they do, For the people who LOVE ATS and defend it I'm sure if one day Lp start singing in japanes or baby's song you'll like it and gave them 10/10 like you said, you are so much in love with them that you can't even make a difference between their songs.
Give me just one songs which show Brad Delson's performance in this album! look's like he worked all this tree years for some "child riff".
(by the way if you listen carefully, "Burning In The Skies" and "new divide" have the same riff)
THERE IS NOTHING ATTRACTIVE IN THIS ALBUM.
