    A Thousand Suns.

    Reanimation has some horrible guest verses., but is still a decent album. ATS is solid all the way through.

    If they're playing an album from start to finish, it's more than likely going to be a one time event.

    If we're speaking present day, it'd be awesome to see LP as they are now play Hybrid Theory in its entirety. I'd love to see Forgotten and Pushing Me Away again.

    Whoa, I'm definitely in the minority...I voted for Minutes to Midnight. In Pieces and The Little Things Give You Away are two of my top faves from them but I love the whole album.

    Definitely A Thousand Suns. It´s not my favourite album, but the one I want to listen to as a whole.

    Definitely Reanimation as a special one time only event. There's such a different feel to that album, for me at least, and as we rarely hear these songs, it would be something very special.

    Meteora, because I can replay it over and over and never get sick of it

    If I had to choose one item only if my house burned down, I'd choose my Meteora album

    A Thousand Suns. Definitely! I think this would be something special. Perfect live performance which would tell you a story followed by an amazing light show and short connected clips on the screen on stage.

    Those of you who have not voted yet should vote MTM just to get it over Meteora.

    Why do you hate Meteora so much? It's a decent album.
    Anyway, I don't understand why are there so many votes for Reanimation, I don't like it, like, at all.

    Because I do not want to heal, feel, or be close to something real.

    Because there are only so many songs that can be written about the pain of being ignored.

    Because power chords are horrible songwriting tools.

    Because Hybrid Theory Part 2 should have been a better album.

    Because I do not want to "get dirty with the people spreading the dirt."

    Because it is artistically stagnant.

    Because every single one of those songs is a carbon copy of another song from Hybrid Theory.

    Because I met the 5-year-old that wrote the lyrics. He isn't that smart for a 5-year-old.

    Because going into Drop Bb for a song isn't supposed to be "innovation" but the band thought it was.

    Because a successful formula doesn't necessitate it actually being good music.

    Because using the word "music" for this album is an insult to music.

    Because it in no way challenges the listener or the band in any way at all whatsoever. As a comparison:
    • HT challenges the listener to what lyrical themes can be associated with what was considered nu-metal, on top of how "rock" or "hip-hop" a song can be.
    • Reanimation challenges the idea of how much the original artist is involved in a remix and the idea of a remix album in general. It also challenges the musical boundaries of the listener by employing underrated artists that may not be on the radar of the normal "fan". Pharaoh Monch is an underground rapper, Black Thought is the emcee of The Roots (possibly the best hip-hop act ever and an actual band no less), Planet Asia is an underground rapper with such collaboration credentials as Talib Kweli, Tupac, etc. I could go on but it's breaking the format of the list I'm creating.
    • Minutes to Midnight challenges the idea of what the band is capable of creating. While some consider "light rock" or "anthem rock" to be nothing new, it's not something LINKIN PARK has done before. Hence the slightly polarizing reactions from fans (i.e. ZOMG WERES MIK3 THEIRS NO RAPING).
    • A Thousand Suns further pushes the boundary of what the band is capable of making. It completely polarized the fanbase (ZOMFG RIP NU-METAL WERE DA GUITARZ) and, musically and lyrically, is the most dense, complex, and complete album the band has ever made.

    Would you like me to keep going or would you like a chance to respond before I continue listing why Meteora is trash?

    I voted for Hybrid Theory although Meteora would be an awesome choice too.
