    You're allowed to be an LP fan and still dislike the new album. ;"

    You can hate all their albums but be able to say which one is the least crappy.

    I think ATS is the best LP album to date. My initial opinions of this album haven't changed much. I still think WTCFM > Everything else LP have put out. I still dislike Robot Boy.

    I try and listen to the album from start to finish but I always end up skipping The Radiance, Robot Boy, WJL and Fallout. The only thing that has changed for me is my opinion of BITS. At first I didn't really like it but it has become my second favourite song from ATS now. This is pretty much the only LP album I listen to and it makes me really excited to hear what LP has in store for us next.

    6 months later, like Ree & others, my opinion hasn't really changed - Best album they've released (& I still think TLTGYA is the best single song they've written). I still play it through a couple of times a week.
    Is it a success? I think so, in that it achieves what it set out to be - An "album" album. I find it quite complete in that regard.

    Then how, exactly, would you be able to consider yourself a fan?

    A Thousand Suns made me break up with my boyfriend. Don't let it control you too. :kappa:

    I just wanted to listen to the album 24/7 but he kept asking me to play with his pet rat. I guess in the end we were made to be apart, like separate chambers of the human heart. :(

    Sad times, Ben. A Thousand Suns has a lot to answer for.

    Wretches & Kings is like Meteora 2.0 , and thus it sucks.

    Don't get me wrong, I always listen to it because I always listen to the album in full but I really don't like it that much. Especially when it's on its own. ugh.

    I heard W&K live and it actually made me like the song more. It's a song that is best heard out LOUD.

    The LIve versions a bit more dynamic, it's a song that really seems to fall flat on its face in the studio version though. I think of it as a reverse QWERTY, which was performed before the studio version and was really good, and then they studio version wasn't so good.

    I still like it, it just doesn't come close to the other songs on the album.


    To this day, I don't understand the hate on the studio version of QWERTY. How is it that much different than the live version? I don't get it, haha.

    There are a good number of LPA members who aren't Linkin Park fans anymore.
