Yet another thought in my head that I wanted to discuss. At this point, three albums deep with him, do you think Linkin Park really needs a producer/co-producer? Or do you think they just want that legendary name on their record? Rick gets less involved with each album process, and I feel like he isn't really relevant to their work as he was with Minutes To Midnight and A Thousand Suns. I personally think they could do it on their own this time around. They are all smart enough to push themselves in any direction they feel they need to without any help from somebody else.
