In the last 2 weeks that I'm a part of LPA, I simply couldn't find the time to read all 10,000 posts you're reflecting on, my bad. I did hear that Meteora has shitty lyrics though. And let's make one thing clear - I am not a Meteora fan. I'm a Linkin Park fan. Meteora is my favorite album. Big difference. MTM is a much more "crying in their rooms" type of record, as far as that is concerned. The lyrics are fine (phenomenal to me, but overall definitely fine), music is top-notch (Numb, Faint, Breaking the Habit, Don't Stay) and the whole vibe is much more giving than HT. The album is not bad. Maybe it's bad to you. Subjectively, I love it. Objectively, it's a great collection of songs that don't make an intro/story/outro thing MTM and ATS got going on.
