this just feels a lot more blatant then before. and like, they've always stuck to that nu metal style thing prior. this, being a clear departure from that, just really shows what the state of their collective mindset is

its a collab. one of the guys with a credit on the album is well known around pop radio. idk about the other songs but heavy was a collab:

''The song was written by Linkin Park with Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter, and Emily Wright helped with vocals recording''

one other song ''invisible'' has the same other people writing with them

ATS is the closest they ever got to a good album. Seems like a product of pure chance now, given the amount of shit they released both before and after

ATS should be a 3.6 average instead of a 2.6 and everything else should be lower.

my thoughts exactly.

this band doesn't even know what to do anymore.
should we go heavy again?
should we go even more alternative/experimental?
should we make another pseudo-concept album again?
...
fuck it, lets just make modern pop and make big bucks

Not sure why y'all have such high expectations for Linkin freaking Park. They've been doing pop since Minutes to Midnight and the stuff before that was as cookie-cutter as "rock" music gets.

If you had told me back in 2000 when they first got big that they'd still be making music in 2017, this is exactly what I would've expected it to sound like.

Linkin Park are at the mercy of their record label and executives now. The Hunting Party was a commercial flop when stacked against all their other records and it was proof enough that there isn't a big enough market for their slice of rock music. Now they gotta be the Chainsmokers.

"I like Minutes To Midnight. It's inconsistent but it has some of their best songs on it"

The Little Things Give You Away is the like the only good song on that album. This new album is sounding bland AF, the complete opposite direction I wanted them to go in but whatevs, I'll still check the new one for at least one standout track.

Again, selling out would've been them making Hybrid Theory over and over again for all those saying they sold out (highly doubt the band needs money after HT selling thirty fucking million). Also surprised after 13 years of LP not being a Nu-Metal band people are still butthurt about it.

LP always got me hyped for new records, this is the first time i'm genuinely dissapointed. Not because it is a pop record, but because the music is so uninspired and bland. They didn't even fully write the songs themselves. This wouldn't be a problem if it didn't show but it does

Black shoes, black skinny jeans, black hoodie covered by a jean jacket.

Angsty, tall, lanky youth in the 16-24 age bracket.

Slow, mellow, moody electronic with lyrics about being "weird," an "outcast," "struggling to fit in"...

This is the epitome of millennial "alternative" run rampant in US cities such as Los Angeles.
