I am a huge fan of the material that LP produced in Hybrid Theory. I mean, who could possibly grow tired of listening to tracks like In The End and Crawling when HT was fresh and out and about? Those two tracks just screamed Linkin Park to the world! It was LP's HT that got me to liking this genre of music. Now, with ATS it might seem that you are listening to a completely different band, and though that may be the case much to the dismay of "hardcore" fans, I never felt dissapointed with this album. I really liked the fact that they didn't just stick to what they know they're good at, though that's not to say that they had no idea what they were getting into with softer material. Two of my most favorite tracks off the album are Iridescent and Robot Boy, which are very different from tracks like Numb or Breaking the Habit, which I also like. In short, LP has not let me down at all. They're still going strong and for those that desperately want to hear LP do something much more original-sounding to HT material, who knows, maybe someone'll ask them to record a soundtrack for an upcoming movie and they might agree to do it... just for the fans.
