    The words used by some people on this thread when they're saying they dislike Heavy and Battle Symphony "because it's too pop" are pretty lame. You can see they're acting like they're too good to listen to pop music and the people that do it are stupid.

    It might not be what those people actually think but that's how it sounds.

    Your personal taste doens't make you better or worse than anyone. It really doesn't matter if you listen to a masterpiece or to shitty song. You do you, fuck everyone who tries to be superior and make other people feel bad.

    It's completely ok if you want your favorite band to release "good music", but some people in here really talk like pop music is shit and something to appeal to dumb people only.

    That emoji is like repeatedly and severely dislocating both shoulders simultaneously. No wonder his face looks like that.

    You can verify it pretty easily by checking the spectrogram of any of your 96/24 files, there's not going to be anything above 48 kHz. A ton of content on HDTracks is upscaled from 44.1/16 CD masters. They might be recording portions of the tracks at 96kHz but that's definitely not what the output tracks are sampled at when the mastering is complete. They're absolutely not doing it at 192 kHz.

    "Why is everything so heavy?"
    "When my armor breeaaks, I'll fuse it back together."

    That meme is an insult to the band and it's ironic to use it against fans of Hybrid Theory in a Linkin Park message board, especially when the lyrics of the new songs are in the same league as the old ones.


    Sometimes you don't need a profound reason to dislike something (same as liking).

    Do I have to apply music theory in order to legitimately and genuinely dislike Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen?

    No secret that I love that image macro, by the way :lol:

    Anyway, needing a "profound reason"? You missed the point of eunyoungg's post

    For $10 a month with student discount, unlimited access to other artist. I much prefer it. HDTrack is pay as you go and a bit overpriced. Limited catalog too.

    Except it isn't the same league. It's clear that they've written it from where they are now. They've said before that they're writing it based on what they feel now. They feel heavy because last year was a shitty year for all of us. They want to rebuild their old broken armor because they want to look forward into the future. And honestly, that's a lot better than the teenage angst that encapsulated most of their career.

    As for the meme, I'm pretty sure it's not insulting, since most of us had that phase and use it for laughs now. Don't take it too seriously, and don't assume we use it to mock their old stuff based on their new stuff. :)

    Call me a fanboy all you want but the song really grew on me and I really love it but at the same time I can understand the hate because most people are judging the song based on one listen and It's really a grower ..

    That doesn't make you a fanboy. It just means you were open minded on the track.

    I think people misunderstand; I don't want them to make another Hybrid Theory, I want them to make something even vaguely similar to any one of their previous albums. I wouldn't even mind another Living Things TBH. I just don't want 2016/2017 mainstream pop

    I like it, but it reminds me of Wiz Khalkha - No Sleep.

    Yeah - there's nothing wrong with us being self-aware as LP fans and being willing to laugh about stuff like that.

    Well yeah, what HDTracks and such receive on their end is a different matter entirely. I'm sure they're recording at 24/96 though, you almost have to to have enough headroom for as many plugins as they're running, and I'm sure that's part of the reasoning for their live show running at 96k too, since so many of their studio plugins are carried over to their live FOH world. They probably have 96k masters SOMEWHERE, since I doubt they'd knowingly up-convert their own audio files for live use, but they may just stick to 48k for commercial use.

    Also I'm one of those people that thinks HD audio is completely unnecessary above a certain point. I can definitely hear a difference up to 48k, and I'd be excessively paranoid about my time-based plugins if I ran a session below 24-bit. Beyond that, I really don't notice much, if any difference (although I have some colleagues who swear they hear big differences up to 88.2). I only go with 96k because it's usually what's expected of an engineer these days, plus my sessions are stored on studio hard drives and not my own, so I really don't care about space lol.
