  1.  

    I didn't "get" A Thousand Suns on the first listen, or for a few months even. I only LOVED Waiting For The End at first, really. I mean going from No More Sorrow and Given Up to The Catalyst is a pretty big change. Then I "got it" and ATS to me now is a musical masterpiece. I can't tell you how much I listen to it start-to-finish; it definitely ranks up there in my top ten albums ever. Robot Boy even is incredible to me. The whole CD is A+++.

     

     

    And then Living Things hit and because it took me a little bit to get ATS, I thought LT was a huge step back for the band. And I still do. I really dislike that record a lot, and LPU XIII confirmed what I thought - they had some super creative, genius tracks like Primo and they tried to shorten them into these "firecracker" songs. The electronic elements seemed so...dumbed down from the ATS era. They had all this synth and electronic stuff and it just sounded so cheap to me. I can dig Lost In The Echo live. In My Remains, Castle Of Glass, and Powerless aren't bad songs (I think Powerless is genius). Just about everything else on the record, especially Skin To Bone, Until It Breaks, Lies Greed Misery, etc I think is really bad. I don't know if I'll ever come around on that album. Burn It Down as a lead single....OUCH. Oh man. I would have kept Primo and the other tracks and expanded on the ATS sound (even longer songs) versus shortening things up for the new album (2012).

     

    But because they kept changing their sound and I didn't know what was next...I didn't even think about jumping ship. One bad record to me isn't much of anything if you love the rest. So I can't wait to hear The Hunting Party.

     

    I agree with you 1000% on Living Things.


  2. Since FM will be a single there are promo CD's with just the song. Some radio stations might have such a CD because it will premiere on monday. So it's not that unlikely imo

     

    I don't know. Do you think radio stations are still getting CD's? It seems more likely they have access to MP3 downloads.

     

    But also, it was self-tagged. A straight rip from a radio promo would have been pre-tagged.


  3. Linkin Park has teamed up with Urgency Network to send someone to space. The whole idea is to donate to charity for your chance to win a trip to space. This is the article:

     

    "I've often dreamt of flying a rocket ship into space—as I'm sure we all have—and always get stuck on one thing: What's your spaceflight mixtape going to be? My most recent vote has been for Nazareth's "Hair of the Dog," which would just crush as you raced out of the atmosphere strapped to a massive tube of explosive material.

     

    But I'm just some guy on the internet, and no one cares about my musical suggestions. What does Linkin Park think?

    "I wonder if that would be weird, actually, to listen to music," Mike Shinoda told us. "It cheapens the Moon landing. Classical is a better choice than Linkin Park, I can tell you that much.

    For the first episode of our mini-series Spaced Out with Friends, we hung out with Shinoda and Joe Hahn to talk about taking a space vacation, and (spoiler) both guys are fully on board to cruise the heavens.

    Now, I'm not sure if Linkin Park is actually going to throw a space concert any time soon. But if you, dear reader, want to leave Earth, we've got the perfect chance: We partnered with Urgency Network to send someone to space. And yeah, you'll probably want to bring Hybrid Theory for the ride up."

    There is also a video Mike and Joe did about it here.


  4. Earlier today, LPL users reported that Rebellion was #1 on iTunes. I missed that, but can tell you that it is currently at #3. This would be the highest selling single of a heavy rock song I've ever seen. I thought I'd share!

     

    My thoughts: if this song continues to do better than the first 3, they are going to have to make it an official single. Which means we'll be hearing it live, and possibly with Daron at some point.

     

    It can be found along with the rest of The Hunting Party on iTunes here.
