ok.. i dont understand why people EXPECT something from artists. HT, Meteora, & MTM, were all incredible albums. artists are supposed to constantly be challenging themselves to try something new.
Do you REALLY want another copy of HT?
Do you want every song to sound the same?
Do you wish that every painting has a house a river and one tree?
Do you want your favorite tv show to have the same thing happen every episode?
no we want to hear a new album,
no we want a variety,
no cuz that would be unoriginal,
and no because then it would become predictable.
if you dont agree.. im sorry you cant accept change.
Linkin Park is a very unique band. they developed a sound that defines their name.
i challenge any of you to create an album that sounds like HT or Meteora, but not a rip off at the same time.
Linkin Park will make music based on what they think their music should sound like.
Excellent!! I totally agree with you!!
Linkin Park is known for always creating something new and being different. Hybrid Theory was really big because of those reasons. Meteora was an extension of that. Reanimation was a perfect representation of that and so was Collision Course and Minutes To Midnight. Linkin Park is always pushing the envelope. My favorite album so far is Minutes To Midnight because they crushed everyone's expectation of what the album was going to sound like and came out with many positive results. The songs were more specific and had more depth. If LP's new album were to sound like Hybrid Theory I would be disappointed because it defeats the purpose of trying to be different in the first place. Nu-metal is a chapter that closed many years ago. Also, many of the fans of Hybrid Theory have grown up, and like evolution, their way of thinking and their taste in art also evolved. When Mike Shinoda was on "Last Call with Carson Daly" and he mentioned the comparison that Dave made about popular music and junk food I could not help but smile. I just couldn't agree more!
Not to stray away but look at The Beatles for example. If they continued writing songs like " I Want To Hold Your Hand", they would not have been as influential and big as when they wrote "Let It Be" and "I Am the Walrus". The fact is they simply grew up and so did their fans. I am confident that Linkin Park will once again push the envelope with their new album. Rock on.
