    Kinda did it by tiers. MTM is always at the top, but the albums in the two other tiers are so interchangeable depending on what type of mood I'm in for listening to music. But that's generally the order of my rankings.

    1. One More Light(just because that album really touches me with every song of it)
    2. A Thousand Suns(man, that album is a real masterpiece)
    3. Minutes to Midnight(all of the songs are like holding hands together, cause they flow so good)
    4. Meteora(it's not like the album has flaws, I put it on 4th place because now I am in a period where I listen to softer music, but I stil LUV it)
    5. Hybrid Theory(again with the opinion up there, but I loved it when I waa like 14-15)
    6. The Hunting Party(when it came out, I loved every song of it but then as I listened to it like for a year I sorted out 5 songs out of 12)
    7. Living Things(first half perfect, second half well it's not the best, it's just strange to me)

    All in all, I love every album, every song, but I change the ranking every now and then, depending on my so called "periods" of life.

    Am I the only one who thinks that Hybrid Theory was so much better than Meteora? Meteora had slower rapping and in my opinion overall just less exciting tracks. Some are amazing, but others I think Hybrid Theory just does better. I like that they made Minutes To Midnight afterwards rather than another album like the previous two.

    1) Hybrid Theory (An iconic, groundbreaking, genre-busting, nu-metal masterpiece. What more needs to be said?)
    2) Minutes To Midnight (The right change for the band at the right time. It was a very crucial time for them to either reinvent themselves now or fade into nu-metal obscurity. More mature and more politically conscious and proved they weren't just a one trick pony. I consider it the Joshua Tree of the 2000's.)
    3) Meteora (Complain all you want about its "angsty-ness", but it was a fantastic sequel to Hybrid Theory and proved they were capable of replicating its success and that they weren't just a one hit wonder band that got lucky the first time)
    4) The Hunting Party (Criminally underrated. It showed that the band's hard rock days weren't completely behind them, Chester's vocals were less studio-polished and more raw which is quite refreshing, and Rob and Brad's talents were shown like never before. It's the closest LP ever came to being a metal band.)
    5) A Thousand Suns (The band's most polarizing album, has its strengths and weaknesses. On the positive side, it's a very politically conscious album, brilliant usage of the political speech samples, and some of the band's most beautiful songs like Waiting For The End, Iridescent, and The Messenger. Unfortunately, this album is brought down by the messy tracklisting where certain tracks should've been combined like The Requiem/The Radience or shouldn't have even been separate and would've worked better as hidden interludes attached to the end of the previous tracks like Burning In The Skies/Empty Spaces and Robot Boy/Jornada Del Muerto. Respect the concept, but it could've been done better. It's no Downward Spiral.)
    6) Living Things (A bit messy and inconsistent, but has some great tracks as well.)
    7) One More Light (I've softened my stance on this album a lot since Chester died, but it's still my least favorite by far. Musically, it's just bland and boring and doesn't have much staying power aside from the title-track which is absolutely beautiful and still brings me to tears every time I listen to it. I just wish it wasn't the final album we got to hear from Chester, especially given the very noticeable emotional downward spiral he was on during this album's release and the ugly backlash he received from critics and fans alike at the time. It's just a very sad period to look back on and it ended in the absolute worst way with the world losing one of the greatest rock vocalists in history.)

    1. Meteora (Easy pick, I love nearly every single song on it.)
    2. Hybrid Theory (The album that got me into them, so I can't place it ANY lower. I just prefer Meteora.)
    3. The Hunting Party (LP goes punk!!)
    4. Minutes to Midnight (Good album, I'd say, just not perfect. Far from their worst, but not their best either.)
    5. Living Things (Eh.)
    6. One More Light (A step BACKWARDS after the blast that was The Hunting Party, and unfortunately the note we had to go out on.)
    7. A Thousand Suns (I hate this album with every fiber of my being. I can literally only name TWO songs on it I'd listen to, and even THEY don't save this album from the doldrums of my list. This album was the final album of theirs I bought, and I don't really feel all that sad about this. I'll probably pick up The Hunting Party at some point, but NEVER this album.)

    1. Hybrid Theory - Simply a classic, important nu-metal album which crystalizes the era in which it was made
    2. Meteora - The more shy introspective brother of Hybrid Theory, Breaking The Habit was where the band took off in a new direction
    3. Minutes To Midnight - A good comeback album, which was comfortable in it's own skin and wasn't afraid to be different
    4. A Thousand Suns - A very good concept album overall, no more to add
    5. Living Things - a 2012 reboot of the entire band's catalogue, squeezed into 12 tracks (and it worked)
    6. The Hunting Party - Important listen for die hard fans, almost a prequel to Hybrid Theory
    7. One More Light - Hot Garbage, a disgraceful end to the discography (aside from the first track and Sorry for Now)

    OML is not my favorite but damn, to call it disgraceful and hot garbage :lol: that is quite a strong statement. I can still appreciate the impressive vocals and the band's drive to do whatever they wanted on OML.
