    Ya I think I can agree that there could have been some fat trimming but I personally love the record, I was iffy at first, but just like everything LP's ever done, it grew on me

    I was rocking it at work the other day. Still a good album and I give it a listen every now and then. Can't say that about some of their other albums *cough*meteora*cough*

    I liked it then and I like it now. Probably slightly less now that the novelty of them finally making another album that I think is more or less consistently good has worn off, but I like it. Good album.

    I remember listening to it and instantly loving it. I couldn't shut up about it for the next few weeks. Seemingly unlike quite a few people here, I was madly in love with Robot Boy. I still think it's a downright amazing song. One year from release, I still love the album and defend it with everything I have.

    3rd, I loved the song just because it was so different from any other Linkin Park song.

    I listened to the catalyst on bbc and didnt know what to think... i just thought the vocals were terrible. I ignored the song until wretches came out which i loved and encouraged me to listen to the catalyst again. I guess it was the over listening to all the remixes of the catalyst that made me sick of the repetitive lyrics but after giving it a little break i began to love it when i came back to it. At this point i was convinced that ATS would be a very upbeat album without slow songs. I thought i would miss the slower LP but i was willing to sacrifice it for an upbeat album (still am for album 5). I checked LPA every chance I could on my iphone until I finally saw it leaked. I was at school at the time so I rushed to the library and found the songs on youtube. I liked the requiem and the radiance but once burning in the skies came on I was a little disappointed. A lot of the reviews I saw described it as being one of the best songs on the album and my expectations were really high. After WTCFM I thought it was an okay song (i think i was still upset over BitS). Once the robot boy piano kicked in i was happy and sad. I thought it sounded amazing but it was another slow song which i didnt want. Halfway through robot boy the bell rang for class and although i planned on skipping, I left cause I didn't think it was worth it. Once I got home I didnt even bother listening to the rest of Robot Boy or Jornada del Muerto and went straight to wfte. At first I was questioning mikes rapping style but didn't mind it once it came around the second time. The end of wfte instantly reminded me of the end of papercut and I was happy that it was to be selected as the second single. As soon as blackout started I loved the drumming (its a common middle eastern drum beat and as an egyptian I loved it). Chesters screams were great and mikes ending was even better. I still question whether or not the end should have been made into its own song. I skipped wretches and went to wisdom justice and love. It a long with Iridescent were very beautiful and reminded me why I liked Linkin Parks slow songs. Fallout seemed unnecessary but tied in the catalyst very well to the album and made it a better song. The Messenger was alright, I was expecting another epic song like tltgya but this was good too. Chesters harsh vocals stunned be a bit at first but now I love them. After listening to it again the next day I loved each and every song. Especially robot boy as its my most played song on itunes. I still listen to ATS the whole way through up till today. I only wish LP would make songs only they can make like wtcfm, the catalyst, and blackout because that is what they are best at, where as other artists can make songs like iridescent and burning in the skies.

    Edit: I waited till the 16th and bought ATS and some nice headphones. I think that allowed me to appreciate songs like robot boy and blackout even more

    What?! Meteora was an amazing album. While I do believe ATS is their best, meteora is my favorite.
