I'm going to repeat what has been said before but, definitely this album is different from the rest. If they wanted or if they had to bring something new I don't care... What matters is if people will like it the same way LP liked producing it.
I can't say it's an evolution, only that it's a change and I... LOVE it.They always bring new energy to my life.
Jason Johns said:my point was that The Beatles ( which i dont listen to their musiic often ) didnt change anything
Firstly, Jason, it seems to me that you put entirely too much stock in sales as an indicator of quality music. It is not.
Secondly, You really need to brush up on your general music knowledge. The Beatles released 12 albums, not 23, and were constantly experimenting with different styles of music.
Now this quote from you "i mean if something works dont change it." is absolutely unbelieveable. Music is art and expression, not a toaster or a car that get rolled off assembly lines by the hundreds, each identical to the last. There should not be any stock factory settings in art.
I've also been an LP fan for a long time (read "10 years"), ATS absolutely blows their previous work out of the water for me. It's probably the most honest thing they've written. Meteora is the opposite of that, in it just tried to capitalize on HT's success.
I appreciate bands and artists who have the balls to be creative, experiment & play from their heart.
