Here is my take on people saying "a real fan would stick by them no matter what."
Lets say you "LOVE" Heinz Ketchup. There is something wonderful about
the sweet tomato taste from Heinz that you just can't find anywhere
else. Do you really love Heinz? Or do you love the style of Ketchup they
create? Let's say Heinz all of a sudden decides to experiment with this
wonderful product we've grown to love, and puts WORMS into the recipe.
Are we going to stick by Heinz and say well it's still Heinz, it's still
ketchup, so I love it anyway. NOT likely!
A Thousand Suns is still Linkin Park, it's still music...but it has a
big can of WORMS thrown in the mix...and I can't stand by this album for
ps. Everything rock or metal Rick Rubin touches....he destroys
