    He blatantly said they/the cd sucked, and didn't give a valid reason why he thinks so..hence bashing. [/b][/quote]
    Ok, so now I´m gonna give you some reasons why i don´t like the lostprophets and their cd:

    They steal so many things from other bands. The writing style on the back of the cd case: Linkin Park LIT, Band logo: just like Limp Bizkit (lostprophets=limpbizkit), they steal lyric parts (for example from Adema), the phone call- like on Reanimation...there are more things I can´t remeber right now...They should change their name from lostprophets into LinkinBizkitAdemaHoobastank....

    I used to like Lostprophets when Shinobi vs Dragon Ninja came out but since they have come out with their new stuff i don't like them anymore. Last train home, to me, has no tune to it and i struggle to sing along to it because it sounds off beat to me. The only latest song of theirs that i like is Burn Burn but it in no way compares to Shinobi vs Dragon Ninja. They don't suck but i personaly don't like them

    i dont want to start a fight but thats what all bands do, influence each other.

    i'm sure some other band used all sorts of stuff linkin park uses first and i dont call them MetallicaPapaRoachCypressHill

    hope you dont take this the wrong way its just all bands steal a little some more, some less :)

    Yeah, I agree with you. But some bands don´t steal, they get inspired by them. yes in the case of lostp., they don´t steal less, they steal more... ;)

    Actually Lostprophets are one of the more original bands out there, if you ask me. And if you ask me further, I think Shinobi vs. Dragon Ninja is the song that has no tune, since I can never quite remember how it goes, even right after hearing it. But since no one asked me, I'll go back to my corner now.

    Ditto. Shinobi Vs Dragon Ninja is a hymn, compared to the LTH songs.
    I don't have a problem with them "borrowing" other bands' qualities, but really, ask Odaton if Last Train Home (the song) reminds him of any Iron maiden tunes or Dream Theater's double bass ( :whistle: )...

    I'm actually the opposite of most people's opinions. I'm downloading all of the songs from the FSOP and don't really like them. I bought SS and loved it!

    Hey guys I didnt want to make another thread soo I'm going to post in this old one. Lost Prophets made a cover of "Cry Me A River" and IT SOUNDS AWSOME OMG (w00t) my friend jus sent it to me and its just soo much better than the Justin Timberlake version. You guys should find away to get this song.

    To be honest, their first album sucked. I got their second as soon as it came out, though, because I had already heard it and knew it rocked.

    I got FSOP and didn't like it at first. Then I gave it a few more listens and now I'm really loving "The Fake Sound Of Progress" and "Kobrakai". Those are some of the best tracks IMO. I can never remember what "Shinobi vs Ninja Dragon" sounds like so no comment on that one. :D

    But compare ode to summer or The handsome life of swing to such generic songs such as Last summer and last train home. Their new songs are just about love and stuff, nothing unique from most emo and pop-punk bands today

    Hmm...I guess Start Something just appealed to me more. I'm listening to FSOP (Album). Turntables are awesome but the songs aren't as good. Maybe I just need to listen to it more... :p

    It's okay because we all have varying opinions. I just liked how the song structures were more unique and the vocals were more dynamic (Ode to summer)

    "Last Summer" is a song about nostalgia and the past. It's not all to do with love. In fact, a lot of the songs on SS have nothing to do with love. But like all bands, they can't help writing some love songs because let's face it, it's a universal theme.

    And because most people experience love, so I'm assuming they did, too ;) lol :)
