LPU 17 Is Here!

Recommended Posts

I love to hear demos that didn't make the album cause it gets us deeper into the writing process, always so cool. Unless it's a really rare live song like HTF, ETR, VD, IP, etc., all the other ones are easily found on Youtube in good quality, but a piece of music by them never heard before? That's dope. Hope they take time to heal and release something.

My post wasn’t entirely true actually. I’d love to hear songs from the old days from like 1997-2008 but with vocals and stuff. Something old school like a demo from those eras would be cool. But for recent album cycles, I would just prefer demos of songs that made the albums. Like I’d love to have all 150 MTM demos but I know that won’t happen. Haha. Or stuff like Thoughts That Take Away My Pride and Pictureboard, but I know we won’t get those. I just think a lot of the demos we have received from 2009-now are kind of shitty. But I do like all the old school ones from the first three albums, even the instrumentals.

I like how there's no "One More Light (2017)" option on "What is your favorite Linkin Park Album?" when you're creating an account. :P

I don’t think it’s anyones favorite album. Lol.

I think some people are being a little insensitive about the lack of music with this LPU. I didn't think they would even do LPU this year, so to see anything at all is a surprise.

 

It's fine to be disappointed that there's no music, but vocalizing that disappointment feels like it's a little much this time around. Don't like, don't buy. If this was any other year I'd probably make a big stink about no music too, but considering what it takes for them to pick out demos or other tracks to put on these? Yeah, I'm not gonna say anything about it. If music comes later in the year, cool. If not, that's fine too.

 

I haven't bought LPU for anything other than the music in years, so I won't pick this one up either, but that's not a big deal to me. I think it's good for whoever wants it.

I'm not mad that the band didn't give us music, I understand why. I was just bummed that we didn't get any and won't join this year.

What happened?

LPU 2.0 CD wasn't released until like February even though LPU launched in November. Supposedly Warner was so uptight about leaks from the Meteora sessions that they prevented the release of the CD for several months just because of the presence of A.06, even though it had already been established that it wouldn't be on the album.

 

Why would anyone pay for this?

Because they see the value of being part of a community, particularly in the wake of everything that's transpired over the last four months, instead of just being an empathy-devoid, "I only endorse the existence of what I think the band owes me" pseudo-fan like you?

Finally, someone said it. Preach!

A Thousand Suns is a concept album based on the bomb you just dropped on this man.

They don't owe anything to anyone of us. I just thought, when I've heard that LPU 17 is coming, I can for a while pretend everything is okay. Listening to new LPU cd is my personal ritual every year. Obviously...nothing is okay.

We will see what 2018 brings

I had a great deal of hope on this year LPU. But now I am disappointed. I was looking forward to unreleased demos.

 

 

very disappointed ive been waiting this for so long, i really do get it why there is no cd, but for me no cd=no lpu, i would prefer if they released it 5 months in the future with a cd rather than this.

 

 

I agree with you. Also for me. NO DEMOS = NO LPU.

 

 

Very disappointing, definitely not joining this year. If they would like to release some music during next year it will be mentioned there, something like "bi-monthly" released tracks in 2015. Demos are NOT necesary, I would be okay with releasing second half of the live tracks which aren't on OML LIVE cd, Wastelands or Catalyst live were badass this year.

 

Stop being insensitive fuckwits "wah wah wah I want my demos" Did you seriously forget what happened? I know that some people WISH to forget, but stop being so insensitive

Wrong.

agreed, but to each their own i guess.

i support the band in anything they do, whatever decisions they now make

i'm happy to buy the LPU17 package even though it doesn't contain any music. i have supported them for 17 years and will continue to do so.

Exactly. Like I actually feel like if you are a true fan you can understand why there is no music. Sure i would like some "new" music. But at the same time I was surprised if the opposite happened (meaning that we got actual music). I expected the outcome to be this

I absolutely love the artwork for this! I'm always blown away by the details in James Jean's work. I especially love the little bat in this, it's adorable! I've been captivated by this from the moment I saw it though. To me, I see it as showing that even though a part of us is missing, even though the loss has left a gaping hole in all of us, there's still an opportunity for life to grow in it's presence. There's still a way to find beauty.

 

I still had a few months before renewing but I really admire them for what they've been doing these last few months. They could have easily satisfied some petty fans and made the live album an LPU exclusive, but instead they made it available to everyone, as it should be. And as for LPU17 CD, I have hope they'll give us something later on. They need time, and I'm a patient person. They've never once given me a reason to doubt their love and appreciation for their fans, so I haven't a reason to stop supporting them. They're still picking up the pieces, I'll be sure to show them they're still loved by supporting them in any way that I can.
