Thumbs down Linkin Park-A Thousand Suns

It leaked yesterday and I'm sorry to say that I'm VERY disappointed in it. What I love most about LP is Chester's great singing when he sings higher pitched and really belts it out. The new album has almost NONE of that! I don't get it. Why on earth would they leave out the VERY BEST part of LP??? I was so looking forward to this album too! Oh well. I'll have to crank up the new Maiden for the 78978946498th time!

You can't honestly be that surprised by that can you? It's Linkin Park!

On all 3 other albums, almost every song has a part with Chester's powerful singing. So, yes I'm a bit surprised that they would leave it out.

They've been downhill since after Meteora. You can thank Rick Rubin for that.

There is no doubt that Chester can sing, but that's not what's in right now. What's in is electronics and Autotune, so of course Rick Rubin is going to utilize that for Linking Park, it will make him extra money.

I had a really hard time with it. It felt like a very sterile rock album. Kinda how I feel about this one, a sterile Electronica album. I'd love it if they got back into the perfect mix of both. Maybe on the next album?

Are you talking about Chester singing or Chester screaming? Cause I felt like the only member they relied on was Chester and his singing. There are like 4 straight up ballads on this album. Mike is there but when he is hes just throwing out pop rap hooks. Then there is "Blackout", the only track where Chester screams but it has to be one of the biggest mess of a song I've ever heard in my life. As for the other members, there presence is nonexistent for the ears. The album is pretty much "Linkin Park experiments" and nothing more, it just feels very unpolished. Also its way too mellow, even more so than M2M. "The Catalyst" is def its high point when listened all the way through because its just so upbeat compared to the other songs.

I actually listened to it 6 times through since yesterday and to me it just became another LP album. I now know every song, not saying its good but its listenable if your in the mood. Still a 4/10.

I'm talking about his singing. Like in almost every chorus on Meteora.

Hybrid Theory was great when I was younger and I absolutely loved Meteora. Two of my most listened albums when I was younger.

Minutes to Midnight was atrocious, even from a nostalgic/former-fan standpoint. God damn. Not even going to listen to a single song from their current album.
