This has to do with producer changes as well.
The same people bitching that they want OLD LP back would be crying if they made 7 albums that sounded like HT.
It reminds me Chris Cornell when he made the "Scream" album. That was a complete failure!
Now he's back with Sound Garden doing ROCK better then ever!
Dude, if you think they're gone then get the hell off this website. I thought the Catalyst was amazing, I don't care if they change their sound because to me they will always be my favourite band, no matter what. They are not changing their sound to sell records you idiot, they know that some of their fans are gonna hate it but they don't care because they love making music and they want to put their past behind them, they wanted to make something different and they have and they're happy with it. Not to mention who the hell cares what they look like?! They aren't pop and never will be pop, if you are going to completely reject them because of one song you don't like then don't bother saying you were a fan, I dont like some of their songs but I still love them.
Just deal with it.
