ATS was not rushed. An album that takes two years to make is never rushed.
(It arrives precisely when it means to.)


I think ATS was rushed, because in the Making Of ATS, the timeline for the album started out about February, 7 months before the release. Up until that point, they had been working on a lot of other songs (according to Chester), which were the ones that sounded like PTB and WWDK, which, imho, sound very different in style than the ATS batch.

Fingers still crossed for my original theory that they took the Post-MTM/Pre-ATS batch of songs and refined them into a perfect blend of the three eras of LP ^.^


You're all against me because I'm black.

Batty, please.

Did they sacrifice their artistic integrity? No. Actually they are constantly growing as an artist with every album and learning to become better song writers and musicians. Did they do it to be more popular? No. I think many of us have already read the rant by Mike after ATS where he explained that accusation. Did they forgot their roots? I don't think they have, you can still hear Linkin Park sound in their every album, and by thinking their first record as their only root is in a way bit stupid, because the band has said many times HT isn't the only sound the band can do.

You don't know why they changed their sound, so stop saying "everybody know that". And to your second point, you are pulling those percentages from your ass. Actually i think if you go asking people what's their favourite LP song, i easily could imagine most people answering In The End, One Step Closer, Faint, Given Up or other songs like that which are all at least a bit more rock.

All videos where he said those or didn't happen. I honestly don't think Chester has ever said HT is better than MTM and Meteora. And even if you could provide the links (which i doubt) of course your taste in music can change. I sometimes say From The Inside is better than Faint, then sometimes i think it's the other way around :D

My english isn't the best but i hope you get my points.



Exactly, in LP's case changing their sound has actually did the opposite to what the definition of selling out is.
"I remember reading comments from other bands, saying things like we feel sorry for bands like Linkin Park, because they'll never know what its like to perform live, because they play along to recorded backing tracks and shit. Well, one: go fuck yourself because you don't know us - and two: why don't you focus on talking about your own band in your interviews?" ~Chester Bennington

False, i can't hear Linkin Park in ATS, if it wasn't for Mike and Chester vocals, no Linkin park would be in ATS. ATS does not feel like an LP album

I always say, it did the opposite of selling out but that doesn't make it good

You really don't understand what an opinion is, do you?...Also, you only recently began admitting that they didn't sell out, so "I always say" is not really true at all.

Thrash hits recently put this post up on twitter:

Do people care about gossip about the new albums from Linkin Park or Green Day? We've been eavesdropping again.

I'm assuming that given a couple of hours there will be some form of article up on their website here by the end of the day.

Here's hoping!

EDIT: Since posting that on twitter (it was also linked to their facebook) some comments have been posted on their status and they gave some interesting replies:

If what we heard is to be believed, Linkin Park have finished recording now, and have actually moved away from the electronic stuff on this new one.

Personally, I don't believe this to be true due to what Rob said in the chat on Monday, however maybe they have finalised the songs they plan to perfect for the album?

Also after a bit more discussion they then posted this:

While the record business in 2012 is a very different beast now to what it was back in 2000, we're sure the difference in sales figures/musical style between LP's earlier/later material might've played "some" part in their decision-making process.

This part sounds like they're echoing what was said in Kerrang last week/week before so could be interesting - as to how much credibility is behind their source I don't know but I suppose it adds to the speculation ;)

What does everyone think?

Just to clear things out: Linkin Park changed their sound from Meteora to MTM because they realized that they didn't want to reproduce the same sound over and over again. What they chose though, is a direction more mainstream and appealing to the masses, you cant deny that. I dont know why they did, actually I dont care why. But it was their decision to move to more mainstream paths and the fact that it sold less is not because they made less commercial albums, but because the music industry has changed and in general album sales are not as high as they used to be back in 2000 when HT came out.

Chester's voice is no longer available for more screamings like in some HT songs, Meteora songs or songs like QWERTY in the shows, just have to listen Bleed It Out in the last shows. That's what I think, the reason that why more songs are like MTM and ATS style maybe this is a theory about that, but probably I'm wrong with this.
