and i dont care if you disagree.
I've been there before, having a band you really like drastically change their sound. It makes you feel like they're alienating you from the music you love. Releasing an album like this is a big risk for the band as well.
Do they keep playing a certain sound that doesnt necessarily reflect who they are now ? Remember LP has been doing this going on 10 years. They are far from the same dude's that was considered one of the top "nu-metal" bands many years ago. Nu-metal is not even a term that's used anymore! As time goes on all things eventually change.
You either accept the change and move forward with the band as a fan or you move on. Linkin Park should always and foremost make the music that THEY love most and that most represents themselves. Anything less is not true Linkin Park. Linkin Park is not the sound of one step closer to the edge or crawling in my skin. Linkin Park are six guys making music.
ps best songs on the album are when they come for me, waiting for the end, black out & catalyst. Too many interludes k thx
P.s.s anyone remember me ?
