  1. MY REVIEW FOR A FRENCH MAGAZINE : First of all, let me just tell you that I’m french so there should be mistakes here and there. It is always hard to review a new LP album as it never sounds the same in the space of 3 years . Happened again this time, LP deciding to lean towards the soft pop style. LP has always been playing in the pop territory, even during Hybrid Theory . Songs like In The End or Crawling were perfect examples. Minutes to Midnights then A Thousand Suns went even one or two steps further and were probably among the best records the band have written. Then came
  2. Well, I still do think that Mike's voice goes better when it comes to pop, compared to Chester's. The song isn't impressive by any means , but it is quite easy to listen to . But then again, this album might be the one I won't listen more than once in its entierety . The only two songs so far I can see myself enjoying even in 2 years would be Good Goodbye and Talking To myself. The rest is pretty meh or bad. The good thing is IF they planned to play this kind of music just for 1 album, that means that we will have something else with the next one. And after the soft overproduce
  3. Wow , this was one heck of a bad show I think :/ Much more than the songs chosen, the order in the setlist is just awful . There are some moments where the crowd doesn't sound lively. Opening with The Catalyst though is a good idea , but the beginning f the setlist is very bizarre as a Heavy song might follow a soft song which follows a heavy song. Bad combination of an energy I think. Apart from The Catalyst, there are really no suprises at all , which is really disappointing. As for the new songs, GG and TTM sounds really nice but Heavy kills everything, especially in the encore..
  4. I don't think you understood ... ATS was LP at its peak ... Meteora , for example , is the album I like the less
  5. I don't think OML is the only problem . At first , LP was innovative until ATS . Then, we just had generic songs over 6/8 years . Collabs might say it all : they're done creating . They do not have ideas anymore.
  6. Third forgettable song in a row .. And it's still the best/not worst of the batch ....I really think I'm starting to be done with LP :/ Been a hardcore fan since Hybrid Theory EP , but I think the band is really overrated , as we didn't have good inventive stuff since ATS, even though some tracks off LT or THP were great.. Let's face it, Chester's voice doesn't impress me as much as it did and Brad isn't a very good guitarist to me . But maybe do I realize that because I've evolved in my musical tastes, I don't know .
  7. I feel bad about the band, right now. THP was made "because the rock industry lacked some heavy rock acts" and because they were "angry". The album was very good compared to Living things, has a ton of material for Live shows . But it sales were quite bad and the band "had to make a choice" by scrapping new songs for old ones. The band gets contradictory again. Most of their songs are still poppy songs , and to be honnest , the core of the set (from the Medley to In the End) is really boring and seems sooooo long. (and looks the same since 2010) So I guess LP will make a statement by 2
  8. I think, even with all prayers you can do, things are already settled for the tour.. So, set A or Set B
  9. Maybe rotating Wastelands with a new THP song would be a good idea, as well as skipping the "solos" parts (Mike/Joe) to make room for other things. But in my opinion, setlist will be quite the same. Just hoping for 2 new THP tracks
  10. I don't know if the guys did rehearsals seometime before the European tour kicks off, but I saw plenty of guys kind of moaning about the last setlist from Carnivores (I was also oneof them, though) Do you see any changes in the setlist? I have the feeling it will be the same as used for the Carnivores :/ Still want to hear more of THP ..
  11. found it, thanks to a LPLive member Thanks to him and the community
  12. Hi, I know this isn't the place to post this and appologize for that. But that would help me A LOT, as I'm seeking 1 ticket for the Zurich show, this upcoming Monday. I come from France, so I won't have time to receive it by post. That's why I'm asking all of you, Switzerland LP fans, if you know someone that is selling just 1 ticket. Thanks for your help; If I'm going, I'm making a report for sure
  13. 11:40, LP playing football (in french) http://www.d8.tv/d8-info/pid5197-d8-le-jt.html
  14. Here is my "review" of THP, as seen in a french magazine/website : (sorry if there are some translation mistakes,I didn't use a translator) LINKIN PARK is a group you may have hard time to definite/identify in the alternative-rock stratosphere. After their debut on the Nu-Metal scene, they started changing their minds and their kind of music, going from progressive/alternative pop-rock to experimental electronic sounds. When promoting their new album THE HUNTING PARTY, Mike Shinoda claimed his will to go to the band's root, mentioning bands like Black Flag, Helmet or Refused as his influenc
  15. Keys to the Kingdom seems so hard to nail for some reasons
