I love the old Linkin Park which is the "metal/rock" days..
And I love 'em until now..
They're still the same band!! C'mon! I mean, I uber love Hybrid Theory, the reason why I love LP, and Meteora.
If you really are a hardcore fan of LP, you'll love whatever changes happened to the band..
Let's just support them and just you know, stop this freaking argument.
I care greatly for the first two albums, but bands progress and grow creatively. I welcome the change, as it shows how theyve progressed as a band musically. The guys wont have forgotten we're theyve come from, and they will return to their heavier sound one day.
Chill out people. ATS is a good album, but in terms of whether people like it?
Personal decisions. If someone doesn't like it, don't discuss it and don't listen to it. Linkin Park's forever changing and needs the change.
A thousand suns is the joshua tree for linkin park to be simple.(joshua tree=breakthrough U2 album) When I first listened to ATS I really stopped and thought how far linkin park has gone and was amazed by the pure different and unique sounds that they came up with which is what I think they wanted their fans to think espically me whos been a huge fan since 2003.(These are just my thoughts).
