"Well, it is a change for worse, for you. Music is about tastes and please, say that you don't like it, but ATS is not worse than their previous works, at all. It is your opinion. It is different, not worse.
Capital letters are not a good way…"
"Well, you don't know that for sure. They are gaining a lot of new fans too because of this new record. Think that a lot of people listened and watched The Catalyst and they wanted to know more about LP. And this will happen with other songs…"
"Well, after many, many listenings, I came here to say that the only thing that prevent me to like ATS, it is the fact that is Linkin Park. When I stop thinking about Linkin Park changing so deeply their music style, or thinking about what they did…"
"I said it before and I say it again:
It is not about change, it is about taste.
I like changes! Change is life in its more pure expression. We need change and evolution.
But maybe you can change and not all people around you would like your changes.…"
"Well, I'll buy ATS. It is not a masterpiece but I like some songs and I want to have it in my collection. :-)
I have to agree with you about people using horrible language to describe ATS and forgetting about how much work LP put in this,…"
"Kamel, stoy calling HATERS to those who don't like ATS.
We are all fans and we have the right to express what we are feelling about ATS.
If Chester don't care a thing about people who made him reach his way of life, well, it is a shame.
"Kamel, please, be a little less annoying.
We have to be people with critical thinking and not just blind followers.
Hate is not answer, but neither is blindness.
Be a little quiet, and let LP talk straight what they are thinking about this…"
"We all know that they read this board. So I'd like to hear something directly from them.
LP, we are your fans and we all want to know what you are thinking about the controversy among your last record.
There are many fans really…"
"I appreciate your answer, and I understand your points.
Answering your question, I won't like to play the same kind of songs for ten years straight. I'm a fan of change too, and I like when people change. It is good. But let me say again…"
"I'm sorry, but your comment is full of hate as the ones that you are criticizing.
You can't call people inmatures because they don't accept the kind of change in style in the music of LP.
First, you can't because music is about…"
"I watched LP performing "The Catalyst" live yesterday at MTV music awards. It is a little weird, because I loved the song. It was kind of epic!. And I wasn't so pleased when I listened the same song in the album. I don't know if…"
"Your comment is a very good one. Thanks for your words.
But I have to say that, in my opinion, the problem is beyond evolution or style change.
I'm listening ATS again and again, trying to like its songs, but there aren't many good songs…"
"Well, I'm pretty sure that they are going to read this discussion.
But I hope they won't change because of that.
They will continue to do what they feel inside their hearts and minds. They shouldn't listen to our desires, they have to…"
