I don't mind me some Linkin Park mainly for nostalgia's sake so I will probably listen to this when it comes out.

linkin park is dead. this new Death Cab for Cutie thing they're doing is anything but cute. I can tell from both the album title and song title this will blow.

They're copying Death Cab For Cutie?

Mike didn't do much rapping on the last album (I'm guessing cause I didn't actually listen to it). Maybe it's cause he did that side project Fort Minor. Anyone know if that groups still gonna do anything else? I liked that album.

Highly doubt this will be a shitty pop album. UK's XFM radio station got a 6-track sampler from the new album, and from the DJ's point of view, the album focuses on a lot more hip hop and progressive rock. I'm not hyping this up, because every fucking LP release was a hype, and the last one ended up being a pile of dump. Hopefully, this will be something better.

Anyone remember the hype before MTM? I recall Mike boasting that they had taken a "punk rock"
direction, whilst still remaining true to their roots. Like that ever happened...

Something else that bugs me is how on 2005's Fort Minor LP, Mike mentions that their label tried to
stop him from rapping and he boasted how stupid they looked for suggesting it after Hybrid Theory
turned out to be so successful. 2 years later, what did we get? An album featuring only 2 songs in
which Mike raps, and one of them was dismal anyway... Sell out much?

I'm hoping for a re-tread as well, but it won't happen.

I don't think any actual musicians can criticisze this band, if you heard Minutes 2 Midnite ud know what I'm talking about. Like how when the piano is played, I think it's very nice. I think you should all listen for that piano - it's a nice sound!
