    2001: Hybrid Theory
    2003: Meteora
    2007: Minutes to Midnight
    2010: A Thousand Suns
    2012: Prototype

    It's doesn't sound that fake. I didn't believe in Burn It Down in the first place. Minutes to Midnight beats them all, in my opinion (great job, Chester!).

    Hm, as I search on Best buy, those 3 items were removed and instead of 39 results it shows only 36 (well, duh) .. I wonder when was the picture taken.

    BTW, why take a picture with the phone and not do a screenshot? :suspicious:

    I love how the camera only shows the Best Buy page, no browser menus or anything that could be used to validate the image.

    You can make this in Paint. I'm calling fake.

    I'm indifferent about the name. I'm sure we'll get used to it. That is, if this is even real.

    Although the image looks very realistic, everyone needs to remember that it's a RUMOR right now.

    My thoughts: A prototype is an early template or model of something. I don't think Prototype is the name of the new album, it could have been posted up on the site as a sort of model/template of how the album listing will look like when it's officially allowed to be posted up so Best Buy just called it "Prototype".

    Or it could just be fake.

    Very true. I'm inclined to agree but I'm skeptical of everything these days. I'd never believe a shitty Tumblr with a tracklist but this one image was very interesting.

    I'm thinking we start the new LPA: Real or Fake game show, we can play it daily.

    I'm sort of apathetic when it comes to album titles. I hope the release date is right, though! Are they playing a concert on June 5?

    I didn't like A Thousand Suns, neither The Catalyst neither Burn It Down. But they're all legit, of course. So I may buy this.

    Hopefully the name is fake. I'm really not liking it and the same goes for Burn it Down, along with the leak and the way it sounds.

    ...I dunno, after ATS I'd expect artistic experience from LP that basically let them do whatever they want. From the sound of things and the two names that have leaked it seems like much more of a commercial record.

    What is going on in LP world right now. There's been so many leaks from this new album cycle I just don't know what's going on anymore.
    I'm seriously suspecting the band intentionally leaking things now. This is just way too much to be coincidental.

    As for the title, I like it.

    As opposed to the leaked audio track from yesterday, this seems to be getting faker and faker by the minute.

    However if it had stayed up on the site, I would've believed it a bit more. But I guess Warner is being extremely cautious.

    There's too much attention to detail on that image for it to be a fake. I mean, the "39" search results has been changed on the whole thing down to littlest of parts.
