    You were going blatantly off-topic about people liking 'Meteora' more than 'Hybrid Theory'. There's plenty of threads that have been created for discussion of that topic.

    Granted, you weren't the only person going off topic, so don't take it personal. :)

    Everybody back on topic.

    sorry, I was just replying to Kayce, didn't mean to go off topic. anyways, back on topic, I think it's best if people stop freaking out over every little detail and quote and not judge the album before you hear it. :)

    I'm hoping the order of the greatest LP albums will be:

    1. MTM
    2. Hybrid Theory
    3. Meteora.

    But I believe it will turn out as:

    1. Hybrid Theory (this is a huge album to top)
    2. MTM
    3. Meteora

    To be fair, even when they were selling millions of Hybrid Theory albums and Meteora was becoming a big success, they always said they didn't consider themselves "nu-metal". Also, we have always known that certain band members preferred other types of music. Mike's roots are in hip hop, and Chester has always said his favorite band was STP.

    Right I know this is really off topic and I apologise, but can somebody be so good as to post a link to some screenshots of the new LP website?

    I cant see it myself cause I aint got Java script installed and I really wanna see it, anyone who helps me out, a beer (if you're under age, a cookie) to you :p

    ...urrm, just to make this post not completely off topic... all these interviews, all these quotes and reviews... people need to relax, wait for the album to come out and make your own opinions then, not get stressed over the opinions of others...
    (But you wont, you're LP fans, you're passionate about this and you mean it, so you take things seriously :p)


    oh and on the seemingly arrogant quotes from Chester?
    1. Chester is a very humble and down to earth guy, so I dont think he'd say anything negative about anyone, I just think he was saying he doesn't feel Linkin Park fit into the genre of NU-Metal and he isn't a fan of that kind of music and feels a lot of other bands who he knows dont belong in that label either.
    He wasnt saying oh NU-Metal sucks or all the bands are lame, he likes Muse, STP and Depeche Mode amongst others in his taste in music so he's bound not to be a NU-Metal fan.
    2. In saying they created NU-Metal, I think again that was taken outta context, people like Deftones, Korn and Limp Bizkit where some of the original bands to play what some would lazily call NU-Metal, but when the genre was at the peak of its power, when it was really popular and took over Rock mainstream, people like LP, Papa Roach, Korn and Limp Bizkit where the four horsemen if you will of what that genre was and who people associated it with, so with his statement I think he means the whole 'fad' of NU-Metal was defined by them amongst others.... and they wanna let that rest now.

    (just to add to the stupidly long post, LPA rules, never ending news and updates, you are appriciated ;))

    Tezzy, to answer your question that didn't get posted here, we moderate posts now. That's why your post doesn't show up asap! This has been said quite a bit now. :)

    Good, I like a rawer sound to an album. Meteora was too polished and in my opinion kinda boring.
