Linkin Park has experienced an extreme amount of success commercially, and overall as musicians. They made the instinctive move as a band to make something powerful, different, and significant. A Thousand Suns is that move. With the experience that the band has, they went into the creation of the album with incredible musical knowledge, intelligence, and skill. Their goal was not to produce another album that every rock'n'roll enthusiast would love. Instead, they aimed to produce a sonic metaphor to deep themes and truths about life. The lyrics, sounds, and titles were created with purpose and meaning to portray a message to the audience. It is understandable that some will not appreciate this album - they fall to the instinct to reject both change and the complex ways the band reaches out to us.

There is an incredible vibe to be experienced from listening to A Thousand Suns; an experience unique and arguably far above any preceding experience taken from an album. I have searched through the world that Linkin Park has created for me, and what I found was amazing. There is something for everyone to find within A Thousand Suns.. something unique, enlightening, and awesome.

This is an incredible album. You've done it. Again.

I bought my copy yesterday and I haven't listened to all songs yet...it sounds so different from the other albums but I'm sure I'll love it! Just let me say the catalyst rocks!

It took me awhile to understand this new direction LP is going.... But I THINK IT'S BADASS. Waiting for the End is my favorite song on the album.

I've been a Linkin Park fan since Hybrid Theory...
Last time, I really relate to their songs straight from my feelings...
Same feeling I had with Meteora, it struck at me closely with somewhere i belong, and the other songs...
When Minutes to Midnight was about to launch, I wasnt es excited as I usually was waiting for a new LP album. I felt I've grown beyond my teenage angst and I was leaving behind my LP hardcore-fan attitude...
Yet, I was so surprised to find how MtM sounds so different, a sound that really connected with me... yet again..


What I love about LP most is not their genre...
but their spirit...
In always being true to themselves, not being afraid to be different and challenge the norm, and having so much meaning and depth into their sound...

and I think A Thousand Suns is spectacular...!

Thanks LP to always be true to your beliefs!
It's truly inspirational...

Love the new material. This is some awsome music to listen to going 90 down the Florida turnpike on a motorcycle. You guys have truly evolved your sound and seem unafraid to to do what it is you guys want to do and not what everyone expects you to do as far as your music is concerned. Nicely done!

Let me say up front that I'm a Linkin Park apologist. I will defend and support them until the end of of all things. Having said that you can probably surmise that I love the record and if I'm always going to support them no matter what then how can you really take what I say seriously? All I can say is that this is just one person's opinion and as I respect your right to your opinion I ask that you respect mine. For me this new record is beautiful. When I finished listening to it I wanted to hit something, throw my fists in the air, yell, scream, cry and say a prayer. Overdoing it a bit am I.?. Can't help it that's the way I fell. I know it's a bit different from their other records but good music is good music. I like different kinds of music. Give me some Beethoven, Marilyn Manson, Chipmunks, LP and Mettalica. Even though this was not what I expected as I listened to it the "different" that I was hearing I found remarkable. The melody on Burning In The Skies stayed with me a long time. You want some cussin and frankly who doesn't like the F work sprinkled around a bit, you get some of that on When They Come For Me and a few more places. Mikey does your family know you use those words? You want something that will rock? I dare any of you, ANY OF YOU to play Wretches and Kings in your vehicle with that bass & volume turned up and not have one hell of a mind explosion. Those of you out there who were wanting to hear Meteora or Hybrid guess what? Go get your Meteora or Hybrid cd and listen to it. How hard is that? Can't sign off without mentioning Chester. His voice is so amazing. It can be so tender and then so I don't know, like it's from the bowel's of the earth which is what you would hear on Blackout. I applaud their efforts. I understand what they're trying to do and I'm most definately along for the ride. Peace

Also,
This a;bum has probably more real bass lines for phoenix than any of the previous, and as for Big Bad Brad, Josh is correct about many sounds being produced by guitars and he will also play different instruments on stage. Almost every member plays multiple instruments, even Chester dabbles with guitar...They are truly musicians.

@Dallas
First of all, Go Cowboys if youre a dallas fan.
Secondly, I wasn't flaming, my statements about the album are very objective, I only called they guy a prick cause he basically called me stupid, whatever I dont care anyway. Next, you said you dont think anyone could say this comes even close to an album they've released in the past. Well, I do. Its by far the best album they've released, in my opinion. I started day 1 listening to and loving Hybrid Theory and I will always love and listen to it! I put this album, as far as creativity and importance is concerned, right next to Hybrid Theory. Meteora was sort of HT 2.0, and M2M was sort of a first challenge to get out of making reproductions of HT.
All that said, I think the album goes perfectly together as a work of art and will be hated by some and loved by others. But, thats no different than any other album ever made, right? Some people who loved everything LP made from day 1 are gonna love this, some wont, and some people who didn't like them before may respect the maturity level of this album and become fans.
As for me, I cant stop listening to anything these 6 produce, cause its simply great music, whether it contains alot of traditional guitar riffs or not.
