I founded linkin park in 7th-8th grade and hybrid theory as well as bits of meteora really helped me hit the vibe I was feeling in that time. I was a lonley conserved and observant kid. As I grew I listened to linkin park's newer albums and followed there sound. The more mature I got the more of minutes to midnight I enjoyed. Now (in 10th grade) I listen to A Thousand Suns feeling a mutual vibe with the song of how society has come and am able to take the big picture and put it into perspective. Rather its Catalyst or Crawling...I can relate to words/beats/sound that linkin park presents.
