    I was curious to know who everybody wanted to produce LPs follow up to
    MTM. I'm kind of a music geek so I think about these things all the time.
    Just name who you think it be should and what you think they would bring to the table. I'll have my response shortly.

    I have so many choices it's hard to narrow them down. For my money, I think Machine should produce it with Mike. This would work because Machines worked with many different bands who cover a wide spectrum of styles. He's produced heavy bands like Lamb of God, Every Time I Die, and Bloodsimple. As well as more melodic bands like Armor for Sleep and 18 Visions (the last album they did with him was melodic). To top it off he's also worked
    with (hed) pe, which means he's well versed in hip-hop flavored bands.
    That's just one of maybe half-a-dozen choices I've thought of, so far.

    Trent Reznor for the rock and electronica bits, Saul Wiliams or Dr. Dre for the samples and hiphop bits, and Mike Shinoda to glue it all together.^_^

    I'd like to see them work with Bob Ezrin.

    I'd like to see Rob Cavallo, just because he did The Black Parade.

    Other then that, I think that Timbaland should produce. Just because that would kind of force them to incorporate electronic elements. Either way, Mike should co-produce.

    Joe Hahn... Then maybe he'd have something to do for the band :lol:




    But anyway, I think they should go with someone who has rap/metal-ish roots for them to get their edge back (I mean like, the heavy guitars and stuff).

    Chances are that Mike and/or Rick will do the next album though.

    I didn't even think of him. I'd like him as well.

    That would be awesome as well. Apparently. when Dan was originally
    producing for the Deftones (before they hired Ezrin) he was leading them in a very heavy and technical direction. Don't remember where I heard that, though. Would be interesting to see what he'd do with LP.

    Dan the Automator.

    Or Danger Mouse. That'd be interesting.

    Haha, I was actually just joking. I think Mike will produce it by himself but who knows..

    What about John Leckie? He produced Origin of Symmetry, which was an amazing album. OoS was dark, had some electronic influences, and was very loud and powerful. Everything that I would want out of a LP album.

    I also think that Jerry Finn could be good. He produced Decemberunderground, which had a great mix of rock and electronic. He also co-produced Sing The Sorrow, another great album. He produced a lot of other great bands as well, such as Green Day, Blink-182, and Sum 41.

    That's why I mentioned him actually, and on top of that he's a great hip-hop producer. So whether he actually took them in either of those directions or not it'd at least be interesting.

    Maybe Damon Albarn could make a guest appearance too, and Kid Koala can replace Joe :p
