I have to say..when I was at work one day I happen to hear this amazing song come on the radio. It had all my usual taste in music and then some and I just had to know who it was by..of course much to my surprise I found out it was from Linkin Park and I was estatic. I quickly looked up on my phone seeing if they had anything new comming out and of course once I saw that 'A Thousand Suns' was the next CD to be released I immediately started a countdown to when I could go get it. I figured 'hey..this song was amazing, I bet they finally got their act together and went back to the old Linkin Park that I knew and loved!'

today I went out and bought that CD..

and only found out that it was the worst mistake I had made

It was terrible...awful even

After the first 'song' (if you want to call it that being that it only lasted 10 seconds..) came and went I thought that this was some kind of an introduction..no it was merely the beginning of a slow let down...

the next few 'songs' also played..each only only being about 20-30 seconds of some mindless jabbering and music that didnt even sound that great..finally after wondering what the hell I was listening to and checking to make sure that this was indeed Linkin Park, I finally got to an actual song..which I had to say wasnt..the worst thing that Ive ever heard but it certainly wasnt something that I was hoping for...

and then it got worse..from here on I continued to listen to some of the worst songs that Ive ever heard of from you guys...it was nothing but rap..rap rap and more rap..and it was almost like nails on a chalk board. Eventually I took the CD out and apologized to my passenger to making them go thru that..and then I had to apologize to myself for wanting this so badly..

Im sorry but this was a horrible CD...just awful..I really really thought that Linkin Park would go back to the good old days of the hard rock and angst that I loved so very very much, the sounds that really just brought out the teenage angst in all of us..but no..I get this god awful same old hip hop rap that..Im just so tired of. Linkin Park I am so disappointed in you...You used to be so good and I still love your old CDs such as 'Hybrid Theory' - I even enjoyed 'ReAnimation' here and there..and of course there was 'Meteroa' (probably my favroite) and last but not least 'Minuets to Midnight' (as well as 'New Divide')

...I miss the old LP...Please stop with the rap..its not good..not one bit

Alas I feel bad about buying this CD really to only find that 2 songs were something to at least listen to. You had my hopes up so high LP, and I had really thought that you had changed for the better..but alas...I was wrong. On a side note you should of never let Jay Z go ahead with the 'Collision Course' CD..because thats what your music is starting to become. A collision course..with a brick wall

I am very disappointed

You can be a fan of someone and not like some of there stuff, it's not like a rule where you have to like every single song your favorite band comes out with. I was for anything that Linkin Park did especially when everyone hated there minutes to midnight cd because it was totally different but I liked it because one it was good and two there were actually songs on it with lyrics. There new cd skips to track three in like less then 3 minutes! why put that there's 15 tracks when there's really only like 5 songs on the entire cd. I don't mind listening to just music but it's a cd new an instrumental cd. I just couldn't believe that there weren't like any songs with lyrics. And you can honestly tell me that you loved that like 58 second interlude that was considered as a track? and all of the other pointless interludes? if you can honestly say those satisfied your love for linkin park, then I don't know what to say. And if I should take my profile off then so should many many many other ppl because a lot of us feel the same way.

I think i can speak on behalf of every REAL fan of Linkin Park to say that your are NOT a fan. A true fan would learn to love anything there favorite band does. Yes you are right that they did something different and out of the ordinary. BUT...this is a CD that you can actually sit down and listen to and relax your mind with. I put in this CD yesterday and i was in complete shock to find out all my problems went away for the hour or so that i listened to it. Im a REAL fan of LP and EVERYTHING that they have done is simply amazing! So take that CD out of your car and give it to a REAL fan that truly LISTENS and not HEARS Linkin Park. And take your profile off there Website because you are not a FAN!

I completely agree with this person's blog. I'm sorry I understand what you're saying Tara that we shouldn't just want their old sound forever, but my goodness there is a line there. I'm a die hard Linkin Park fan and have always loved everything they do, but I'm sorry this cd was beyond disappointing. I was sooooooooo excited that my favorite band of all time was coming out with another cd and I bought that cd as soon as I could today, and when I listened to this cd I was utterly disappointed, and quite frankly shocked. So I'm sorry yeah we shouldn't expect the same sound but they shouldn't forget the style of music that they do that got us to love them so much in the first place.

Hey, you logged on to the wrong site- this is for LP fans- clearly u are not one of them- so take your trash talk somewhere else nobody here cares to hear you whine and complain, how they didn't meet your expectations- and people saying go back to where you started- yeah early LP is awesome- some songs I care for more than others- everybody loves the undeground stuff- its off the beaten path, it feeds the rebel in us- but you don't stay there- its called "EVOLUTION"- TRUE LP FANS WOULD NEVER WANT THEIR CREATIVITY STALLED- SUSPENDED AND 2 DIMENSIONAL THEN YOU WOULD BE SAYING THAT ITS SAME OLD SAME OLD- SOUNDS THE SAME AS THE LAST ABLUM AND THE ONE BEFORE- BLAH, BLAH, BORING-- THEY EVOLVE AS ARTISTS PUT OUT THERE WHAT NOBODY ELSE HAS DARED- AND KNOWING THEY MAY FAIL- AND WHEN FANS HERE THE FIRST BARS BEING SANG- ITS SENDS SHIVERS, GOOSEBUMPS AND YOU ARE ENTRANCED- WHICH IS WHAT "THE CATALYST" DID TO ME WHEN I SEEN THE VIDEO- i WORKED THE NIGHT OF THE VMA'S- BUT NOT MUCH WOULD STOP ME FROM SEING THEIR PERFORMANCE- SO I GOT THE REMOTE INFORMED MY STAFF THAT I NEEDED TO SEE THEIR PERFORMANCE- SO THEY SAT THROUGH IT SOME INTERESTED AND SOME NOT- BUT ALL AGREED- A HAPPY BOSS- IS A GOOD BOSS- AND THAT WAS ME. I HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO GET THE NEW STUFF DOWN LOADED YET- I HAVE FAITH THAT THIS FAN WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED
