    A recent article from The Hundreds confirms that LIVING THINGS is currently in post production with new mixer Manny the Mixer who has been linked to Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend" and John Mayer's upcoming album. "He earned his stripes in the days of early ’90s West Coast rap, and has the harrowing “Behind the Music” tales as evidence." Manny's mixing can be heard first hand in Linkin Park's new single BURN IT DOWN. Though this is only the first piece of twelve from Manny, discuss here on the LPA about how you believe LIVING THINGS may sound. Will the mixing be even better than previous albums?

    Readers have speculated that Manny the Mixer is in fact Manny Marroquin who has worked on a myriad of genres in his years of experience as a mixer with artists ranging from Tupac, Common, Lupe Fiasco to John Mayer, U2, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, The Fray, and now Linkin Park.

    The article also offers some details on the sounds of the upcoming album:

    Great article, very well written. And "It’s by far the band’s best, most comprehensive work" makes me really pumped up. I love this band.

    Only thing is that they dated Hybrid Theory as a 1996 album, dunno where he'd get that :lol:

    My favorite Linkin Park album was their last, A Thousand Suns, because it played like a book is read. It was cerebral and heady, it was an emotional story that had weight.

    Don’t get it twisted, Living Things doesn’t ditch that.

    This re-excites me for the album. It doesn't need to sound like A Thousand Suns, it just needs to bring that same creativity/level of thoughtfulness.

    So..? Mixing is mixing. It's not like LIVING THINGS will come out of that room sounding like a Bieber album.

    He said the debut of Hybrid Theory was in 1996 lol. (Unless I read that wrong.)
    Pretty cool read though, can't wait for the new album.

    So? Who gives a fuck? :lol:

    Assuming "Manny" is Manny Marroquin...Manny's mixed everything from Tupac, Common and Kayne all the way to John Mayer and Pitbull. He's done everything, and someone who's had THAT much experience with different genres is a great match for LIVING THINGS.

    Infact, hearing from a reviewer that parts of this album are uncharted territory and ATS's "Storytelling" is not gone has just made me shit my pants in excitement for this CD. Hold on, my knickers need to be changed. BRB. :WTF:

    *Waits for the inevitable, un-informed idiotic comment in this thread about the "Dubstep back beats"*. It's coming, just wait.

    This makes me even more excited for having preordered yesterday. The 10~15 days I'll have to wait for international shipping will kill me.

    I drooled over this article.
