A bit about myself (hobbies, music, gaming, art)
I like cars...a lot. I'm an import guy at heart, but I'll respect your domestic any day if it's done right.

My thoughts to you haters and whiners...

I'm getting really tired of hearing people complaining that the new CD's (Minutes to Midnight and A Thousand Suns) suck or are just aweful. Yes, they are different than Hybrid Theory and Meteora. But can you honestly expect a band to play the exact same thing forever and people not get tired of it? If you do then you are in some weird state of denial. Meteora is my favorite Linkin Park album and one of my favorites of all time. Minutes to Midnight was a step away from their 'old sound', and even though it isn't my favorite I do like it alot. The same applies to a Thousand Suns. It's a step further away from their 'old sound' and into something new. Is it my favorite? No. Do I like it? Very much.

What you people really need to complain about is how the music industry that has you in the mindset that the bands and musicians play what YOU want to hear. In my opinion that isn't the way it should work. One of the biggest reasons I like Minutes to Midnight and A Thousand Suns is that Linkin Park is playing what Linkin Park wants to play. If Linkin Park wanted to grab a bunch of fiddles & banjos and make music that way then power to them (I'd pass on that album, but I'd respect the fact that they are making the music they want to make). If Linkin Park wanted to play in the style of Hybrid Theory and Meteora again and again and again then they would have. But I'd be willing to bet that they have realized the simple fact that times change and they have matured (not to say they were immature in the first place) in their musicl styles are willing and open to experiment to create new radical music which is what they've alway been about. When Hybrid Theory came out who in the hell really thought that putting rap, rock, metal, thrash punk, and DJ'ing would have ever worked. Yet Linkin Park proved it could work and they changed it up a little for Meteora. And they are still doing the same today. Quit bitching people. If you like the band then you'll respect them.

I am, everyone is complaining how they've changed what they're about but they really haven't. They just want a new sound that they want to play, which i personally think if given a chance turned out to be great.

Josh, very well thought out. Finally I run into someone that makes some sense. I commented on ATS a couple of days ago and mentioned that I respect everyone's right to opinion but when I hear the words "suck" or "aweful" I just want to pull my hair out. Watching some of the videos that LP has put out on "the making of ATS" I can see how hard they worked on making this record. You know I'm not a huge fan of let's say Kings of Leon but I would never say their work sucks because I'm sure they work just as hard at making a record as Linkin Park does and I know they have a ton of fans. From Texas peace to you in N.C.
