Listening to ATS changed the way i look at things completely...it made me look from the 'we' view instead of 'me' view.
In the beggining, they used to talk about paranoia, about pain and individual suffering...10 years from that point and now their songs are about world peace....they have matured from chores of teenage problems and now focus on the bigger picture...moved on from imaginary pain that resides in our brains to the sufferings and cure of the real world...This attitude is reflected in ATS, and it has its effects on me...in other words, it helped me forget the heartache my girl used to cause me every now and then.. i havent moved on from her, but i have moved on from this kiddish breakup patchup stuff...
Furthurmore, it gave me confidence to not being afraid when being ourselves...to be different...to explore new territories, to expand our boundries. I think, this is what an album can achieve at most...it completely changed me from inside out...yes!And now i am a true linkin park fan. I was their True fan even before listening to ATS, but i used to like the nu-metal guitar and the screams more than the hidden meaning of their music..., but now i love linkin park for what they are... AWAY FROM THE REST, YET THE BEST \m/
A Thousand Suns is the most refined and perfect piece of music i have ever heard (our will hear) in my life.! Love you guys!!!!
Just signed up to say here: A thousand suns is the most brilliant album ever to be made so far! If you know all the backgrounds on all the speeches they've 'sampled' (or in better words: gave a soundtrack), you'll know this album is about more then some insecure feelings any teenager(or adult for that matter) would have. On MTM they already started getting political, but here they've taken it to a whole new level. I can't get enough of the album.
Good job on the cover art as-well btw! Can't wait for the next video to come out!!! (No seriously, I can't wait, please fix us up already!!!!).
Oh and too all the people who keep crying about this not being metal: Sucks too be you [all locked up in a mind frame that keeps you from living in todays world]
