I always hated Linkin Park, but this is a whole new level of suck. Doesn't even sound like the same band.

^ :agreed: Whiney or not, your thing or not, they had some amazing guitar tone up until Meteora.

I heard the last song and hated it, but that's fine. I heard this and felt offended by it though... Just fucking awful :(
I really enjoyed the really old stuff, and yes the guitar tone was amazing.

At first I figured this might just be their obligatory 'maturing' album where it gets oddly prog, but that dancy shite has me thinking they're just aiming at another fad.

A shame, they had their good moments back in the day. Not the most imaginitive band but fun.

What was that? Can they still call themselves Linkin Park? That doesn't sound ANYTHING like them.

Their first album, Hybrid Theory, was decent. Meteora had a few decent songs on it, but was mainly just straight up suck. And every album after that has been horrible. But I don't see how they can still call themselves "Linkin Park" with this music now. :ugh:

Linkin Park, in general, is horrible... but that was just... gah...

Is this some sort of surprise to you? It's Linkin Park, it should just be expected to suck.
:shrug: I really rather liked a lot of the numetal movement. Granted, it was filled with rather more than it's fair share of unoriginal tripe, but the tones and feel of the music I really liked.

:agreed: The older stuff really was pretty cool, even to just have on in the background. And I really did love their tone :eek:

AUTOTUNE, MR SHINODA?

I liked Hybrid Theory: that album was the soundtrack to my summer going into high school, and brings back great memories. My best friend and I were so impressed that we jumped on reanimator.. to find out that it was remixes. I had already downloaded hybrid theory material when the band was actually called hybrid theory, and they even snuck a couple "original versions" onto there IIRC. Bottom line, we didn't like it much. More of my friends liked the band when Meteora dropped, and for me I was like "well Faint is good.. bout it..". I have one slower song off their last album, and it's a solid song but very much not LP.

Last I checked, Chester's solo thing didn't suck so much (but I can't listen right now)

It's been a long time since I spun Hybrid Theory, but I don't recall the guitars being particularly outstanding sounding...

If this is the song I heard on the radio the other night (and I think it is, the name rings a bell but I can't watch from here), then I'll simply say that I don't know if I've ever wanted a song by a band I generally can tolerate to hurry up and end quite so badly before.

It was horrid, and I found myself relieved that it was at least bad enough that after a couple weeks it'd be off the radio, because NO ONE could possibly like it.

Not really feeling this new song.
