The hell kinda analogy is that suposed to be!?
Ketchup is the same with every bottle. A band is different with every song. In other words, whereas you would expect the ketchup in a bottle to be exactly the same in every other bottle, you WON'T expect every song of a band to be exactly the same - that would just be boring.
Ever since they started, LP has had a variety of different styles with different songs. Now they're experimenting with a new style.
Think of it this way: What if the Heinz Ketchup Company told you that their new bottles of ketchup would be different like LP did with A Thousand Suns? You'd obviously EXPECT something different. So why the hell did you expect their new music to be the same as everything they've done before?
Furthermore, you can't taste music. It also depends on the worms.
If you don't like the music, then don't effing listen to it! Give LP a break, for crap's sake. If you throw all your dissapointment at them, imagine how dissapointed they must feel! Two years of hard work down the drain.
If you were really a true LP fan, you would atleast TRY to tollerate what they came up with, just like a true Heinz Ketchup fan (again, pathetic analogy) would atleast TRY to tollerate the worms.
Now stop whining and go listen to something else.
Edit: Thanks to the two posters above me. Perhaps I should've said "Amen".
