I'm also one of those people who's been a fan since Hybrid Theory and hence, I don't like this album. The first thing I thought when I heard "A Thousand Suns" is "they've gone too far" in terms of trying to obtain new fans. The thing is, I've realised that it's probably a sign that the time when you could buy an album from your 'favourite band" ( since Linkin Park is still mine) and expect to like it are long-gone. We should just buy albums after hearing a few singles we like off it. Like Mike Snyder said above, buying ablums "on a whim" just isn't going to work anymore. I really hope they make at least one more album that has the lyrics and sound of Meteora and Hybrid Theory, but until then, I'm not going to buy another album, but I'm not going to criticise the band or its new sound either. They aren't deliberately trying to piss-off us die-hard-old-school-LP fans after all.
Mike Snyder said:I think Wretches & Kings is one of their best sounding songs ever. The new sound Linkin Park is moving towards took me awhile to get used too but now I love it. If you don't like it then don't buy the CD. The joy of how the market works is you are free to do research about the CD then make an educated purchase if its something you want. Blindly buying a CD on a whim, you can't get mad when its not what you expected.
so well put mate.
however,the next album(fingers crossed) will be just as diverse as this one.
"if you're standing still,you're going backwards"
I'm sure it will be quality no matter what. I'm very picky about music, other bands I like I can pick fault with some songs and albums, but Linkin Park for me have that rare quality in that I like just about all their songs and albums.
Leaving the old generation is a selfish move.
Guys, goin mad?? Or what??Can't understand why you people don't like the new album!! listen to the lyrics oye!! Its really gr8
Would all you haters please just freaking shut up?! Nobody cares what you think! If you hate it so much then GO LISTEN TO A DIFFERENT FREAKING ALBUM! No one wants to sit and listen to you whine about the new album. I'm getting sick and tired of seeing gripe about it every time I log on!
