    I have to say that this is really an unpopular opinion to me, because I definitely don't agree with it. :lol:

    Compared to their earlier ones (and 2012 onwards ones), ATS setlists were easily their most down/mid-tempo influenced, and certainly didn't delivered the energy the band shows were knowd for back in the days. And that was due to songs like Iridescent or The Messenger, and most importantly, to those damn interludes. In my opinion, stuff like "Wisdom" or "Fallout" or even "Jornada" killed the energy of the sets.

    But then you had songs like Waiting For The End or The Catalyst, which were amazing on record but the live versions never made justice. LP, at least as of lately, have been struggling to transfer the energy and enthusiasm from their albums to a live setting. And when the band is good, the energy should be there regardless of what they're playing (Unless they're a mellow number, sure, but this is not the case).

    - There are more Fort Minor Songs on my top 10 than Linkin Park Songs

    - I ridiculously want a new Fort Minor album

    - Mike Shinoda should incorporate Fort Minor into Linkin Park shows (somehow without a broken up SOB)

    -Joe Hahn is useless in shows

    - ITT; bitch about Linkin Park without any repercussions.

    - Hybrid Theory hasn't aged well, and I dislike they're doing a whole set dedicated to the album. If anything, I'd agree with those saying Meteora is better. Breaking the Habit is probably the best song out of both albums.

    -Living Things was mediocre, and an unfortunate regression from ATS.

    - I'll try to be really unpopular here, ATS was a step in the right direction but still lacking in some places. A lot of it is taking styles that already existed and finding creative ways to meld them together. That's always been what LP does best, but it's not an experimental album the way it's hailed. That's why the Kid A comparisons seem entirely wrong-headed to me.

    - Brad Delson isn't a good guitarist. I don't know if it's his fault though, or just the fact that Mike does most of the songwriting and doesn't include guitars.

    I actually don't think that's a very unpopular opinion at all. Personally, when I call ATS "experimental," I'm speaking relative to the rest of the band's work. It's Linkin Park's Kid A, not necessarily on par with Kid A. Does that make sense?

    Minutes to Midnight sucks just as much as, if not more than Meteora.

    I agree with both these opinions.

    Castle of Glass also sucks, and so does Primo.

    No More Sorrow alone stomps everything on Meteora. Repeat it twelve times and you have a better album.

    And that's without mentioning In Pieces and The Little Things Give You Away.
