    I'm going with not wanting to hear this. I think it would be cool to hear Dave and/or Joe have thier own parts singing... Think the end of "The Little Things Give You Away" But with Joe or Dave singing too.

    I agree. Mike rapping was definitely my favorite part of Linkin Park on both Hybrid Theory and Reanimation and on MTM I longed for more rapping. But between Mike's singing and the high quality of his rapping on ATS I was more than satisfied with the rapping. I'm over the notion that Linkin Park is a "rap-rock" group. They're able to float into so many areas that I should be satisfied--though I probably wouldn't be OK with NO rapping.

    like Blackout but chester seemed to kinda scream his verse. I would like to hear him rap his owns verses something like High Voltage.
    seen a post of Mike singing the verses and chorus. my opinion: i agree!!! :D Chester sang a lot of songs with Mike doing backing vocals. more songs like No Roads Left mixed with Iridescent with a sprinkle of Robot Boy would be AWESOMAZING!!!

    PS. i miss the whole By Myself/Figure.09 rap/scream parts. you know when Mike raps a line but Chester screams the last word \,,/(-_-)\,,/

    So glad after i read this. With some of Chester's comments lately i was afraid they were going a totally random direction. i love that Mike said they're not ignoring the 'old' style anymore.
    I'd be cool with A Thousand Suns 2.0, but a HT/ATS in one would be the greatest thing ever. And we'll get it before the world ends XD

    Yo dudes there are heavy rumours that LP is going to play Pinkpop12. One of the most famous and well trusted DJ's in Holland said so and he is known to be right when it comes down to confirming acts from pinkpop (like The Cure this year) The festival will be held from 26 till 28 May. And just thinking comercially it will be more logycall ( or however you spell it xD) if they would relaese the album around that period right???

    Yeah, Mike sings the chorus on his own. That doesn't really count. :p

    Why shouldn't they have any traces of the old? The band can make whatever the fuck they want. I had a problem with their attitude during ATS. Not because the were experimenting, but because they wouldn't let themselves create "organically" without worrying about the sound of the end product (whether it was HT-like or brand new). Now they're doing that so that's great.

    I totally agree. Their old style is what made them famous, so don't abandon that completely. I think yes that there needs to be maturity to their music, but you can't alienate the old fans. To sum it up I listen to the old Linkin Park to motivate, and I listen to the new albums to go to sleep which isn't a good thing. But of course this is just my opinion.

    Thank you. That sums up better than anything why I am excited for this new record. The band is letting down their guard to pursue whatever music their hearts tell them to make, whether it sounds like their old music or something completely different, and that is a great thing. Sometimes being *too* perfect is a bad thing. I'd rather have them make music organically, instead of worrying so much about whether or not "song X" sounds like something they've done before.

    That perspective kinda bothers me for a few reasons, but mostly because it turns art into a business decision, which undermines the art. An artist makes things to satisfy himself, but shares it with people in hopes that they also enjoy it. A business man ultimately wants to satisfy someone else (for money).

    LP (mostly) made HT for themselves, hoping that people would like it...then put out variations of the same stuff for half of their career because of an album that they made in their late-teens/early twenty's. That's business... and business really isn't about being creative, or making the workers happy. It's just about getting people to spend money.

    check this...
    A song I made 4 YEARS AGO is going into local radio rotation next week.
    I don't even care to make that style of music anymore, nor do I think it's my best song. I can't imagine getting famous from it and hearing that people want that style over and over again when I think that I can do better. I'd think that's the same way that Linkin Park feel (or at least Mike)

    my 2 cents

    I honestly don't care what we get on the new record, so long as it's not polarizing in its social themes and it's able to stand on its own not only among Linkin Park releases, but in the wider world of alternative rock.

    Edit: Oh, by the way, I find it hilarious how around this time two years ago people were like, "Augh, this new album better not sound like MtM, they have to go back to their old sound," and now people are all being like, "Jesus, they're going back to their old sound? This record is going to be terrible."

    I just realized that some of you may have taken what Mike said in the interview a little out of context. One can easily derive that he is simply stating that if a track they're working on veers towards something that sounds similar to HT-era material, they'll keep it regardless, as long as it sounds right.
