Everything you have just said sums it up perfectly. I agree fully 100 percent and I am one of the fans that welcome the change because i want to see them for their talent and for their creativeness, not them just listening to the fans who are saying "I want this back" or "i want that track again". Its been made already, why repeat something that was already perfect? And as you said, it all comes down to the fans just stay one sided and don't accept the change as fluidly as others. Also it's very interesting to see how they can all put their favorite styles together, throw it into a "melting pot" stylistically and you know for sure its been made by Linkin Park without even being told who its by because u can hear their elements.In my opinion, i believe every one of their albums is a milestone. Each one they have matured on, whether it be lyrically or stylistically or the band themselves. Its been almost 10 years for me to be listening to them and I still am shocked by each and every project they do.
Now as for the comments on Youtube, I, myself, have tried to refrain from commenting when people go all hating on LP because I care about the music and the band and I don't like seeing negative comments about my favorite band. Like Chester said on the Making of Minutes to Midnight "I appreciate democracy but when it comes to music I like, I have very strong feelings about it" I have very strong feelings when it comes to my music and it seems you do as well, so if I have my right to speak, I'm gonna give my opinion and people wont like it but I never said they had to like it. And yes, it just comes down to one track minded people that cant accept the change as others can, which makes them immature about the new sound.
GOSH! i dont think i've wrote this much on here....at least i dont think. =) SO i give u 2 thumbs up over all!
When I first listened to LP, I was still a kid so into rock. Because of them, my music taste has grown.
You do have to keep in mind that when you go into Youtube, 90% of hate rests there because most are really just a couple of punks (not 'Ali Z.' punk) behind a computer, commenting anonymously. Ok, so my percentage is high but you get the point.
I get what you are coming from, but I actually don't agree with you.
Firstly, your definition of an opinion is only yours. The dictionary meaning of the word does not require an opinion to be either based upon fact, or to be unbiased.
Secondly, I understand why it bothers you, I really do, I spend a lot of time here trying to stop trolls like that from continuing.
But really, some people have lower IQ's than others, and some people were never taught how to express themselves with words. The only thing these people understand is insults and abuse. That's not their fault, it is a product of either their genetics or their upbringing, and that doesn't give anyone a right to deny them the ability to vent their feelings, whether it's done in a trollish way or not.
Censorship is extremely dangerous, and that's basically what you are asking for here.
People like Mario Savio, who Linkin Park obviously agree with because they put him on the album, fought for our right of speech. If we take that away from some people simply because they are incapable of making an intelligent argument, then we are nothing but dictators.
