    Meteora was my favorite album back when I was like 13.

    Now, it's by far my least favorite Linkin Park record. Holy tits, those lyrics.

    That and they're like the most generic rock band I've ever heard.

    Recipe for a Meteora song:

    1 tablespoon metal screaming
    1 teaspoon awkward slow rap (optional)
    1 cup of context-free pronouns, chopped
    2 cups of mind-numbing drop-D power chords
    1 cup of milk

    Pour into a bowl pre-battered with self-loathing, stir into a fine paste. If assembled correctly, can feed a million teenage boys from Cleveland. If not assembled correctly, start over - may take a hundred tries before you successfully pair "feel" with "real."

    Creative low-point of a band with much more talent.

    Watered down, re-written into oblivion, and an obvious attempt to duplicate Hybrid Theory's success.

    Cringe-worthy lyrics, unimaginative guitar work and formulaic song structures.

    There's your explanation.

    I don't know why a lot of people don't like Meteora much. I remember when I got it when it first came out, hearing the whole cd from start to finish I could hear how different it was from Hybrid Theory. Sure it's song structures had a "hybrid-esque" like sound, but each song had a new sound. Which is what I like about Linkin Park, because every CD of theirs has a new sound, but even with the new sound you can always tell it's them.

    Although, one song I never really cared for was Hit The Floor. It's just kind of meh.

    You know, if this album actually existed, I'd say that the songs aren't all that different because powerchords are not "new sounds".

    I'd imagine that if such a crappy album existed, I'd post an entire essay on why it sucked. But luckily this never happened.
