It means Shinoda will be rapping.
I am going to...
Funny how people are like - oh noes the track titles don't excite me.
I wish they would just put track names 1-15 or whatever. Who cares about what the names are. As long as the album sounds good and you can tell nothing from a song title besides maybe a theme.
Don't get me wrong Naming something is important but it doesn't dictate how a song will be.
I'm so excited for this album, I think its going to be a bit more Radio Friendly but still with a good listen will have the depth all LP fans need. I've yet to hear anything these guys have made that I haven't loved.
Xero tape? Nah, I'm not sure what they mean by that. It's not like he doesn't MC anymore, I think.
Not really, but it's fun to post just so BlackOut can tell us to fuck off.
Ohok thanks! Now I'm even more excited for the new album!
At least we have a confirmed song title. I'd say with this article that all things are confirmed since it'd be hard for Rolling Stone to BS this thing.
Release date is interchangeable but doubtful. Now we just need LP to start teasers
Hybrid Theory EP or Xero, Mike is a really good rapper his raps are very meaningful not like most rappers, i think Shinoda is a very underrated rapper and deserves more credit
It means he's going BACK TO DER ROOTS
They didn't say that it sounded like Hybrid Theory, just that the music left a similar impression. I like the sound of that, to be honest. Linkin Park have made some good mid-tempo songs, but even ATS could have used a bit more energy.
And that's just one writer's opinion. I'd be willing to bet this album probably won't get a good review from Rolling Stone, anyway.
for fucks sake confirm the god damn song already. I cannot take this anymore. Anyways, Lost in the echo should be badass, the way its describe in the article. Mike with his MC roots, oh shit!!!
Awesome!! Can't wait!! Ok, so far we've got one 'chester' song and one rap song.. Hope these news get confirmed quickly!! :'D
I think the title of the album is TBD.
In all seriousness though. I know everyone's getting heartburn cause there's sporadic mentions of "familiarity" and "mixing the old and new" but for some reason I'm cautiously excited and optimistic about this album. The band has seemed really proud of this record, and with Rolling Stone liking what they've heard (considering their review of ATS was negative) it's promising.
"MC roots" is just a stock phrase magazines use just to refer to "rapping" in a more exciting manner. ;" That phrase alone (especially before we've heard the album) shouldn't differentiate the rapping on this upcoming album from the raps Shinoda's done on previous ones.
While hearing that there are electro grooves gets me excited (because I fucking love The Catalyst, and would adore a Catalyst 2.0), I'm very nervous that this album could see them returning to a "nu-metal" style. While I know Shinoda has said the opposite of that, I'm still nervous about it hahaha.
I'm sure though that once the album releases, I'll be like "LOL WHY THE FUCK DID I DOUBT YOU?!?!"
Nothing wrong with them embracing their roots while also building upon their evolution, IMO. Best of both worlds.
Bring it on, LP. I can't wait.
I'd keep faith in LP. If every word Mike and the band has said has been true, I'd trust in them that they're not going to do a complete 180.
Believe in the band, it's the only thing we can do until we listen to the music.
I worry about that too, a fair few of us do, but I have faith in Shinoda. He'd know better than to do that, I'm sure. At the same time, we've all had to deal with a lot of contradictory statements so those concerns are quite valid
On a slightly unrelated note: is it sad that I joined because most of the fans here seem to favor A Thousand Suns? I mean, I love their early stuff as much as the next guy, but to me, ATS blew those albums away.
And aside from this website, I feel like most fans rage against ATS...
