As an artist that doesn't even tour, last year I flew 500 miles a couple times and as much as performing is fun, it would be alot more awesome if somehow you can teleport home afterward. I think while playing shows you probably aren't thinking "I wanna go home!" but you might afterward
It's true. We are not against changing and we are not against LP with their work. Yes it's their job and work and they decide. Change is an important part in everbody's life but ... c'mon we are the fans and if they really love their fans they should respect them and give them what they want. Bizilion of fans are asking to AT LEAST make half of the album mixed between Hybrid Theory And Meteora sounds. The other half let them do what they want.
Not the WHOLE album different from EVEEERYTHING they did in the previous albums.
Linkin Park wants to be the band they want to be and the best damn LP they can be. If they were to release an album almost exactly like HT/M then tonnes of people will be disappointed and only a fraction of their fanbase would be pleased. LP is on the right road to having the identity they want to have, and we all know there are bad/hooligan drivers out there. They have a very good and focused mentality considering the pressure of the consumers.
"The hope, of course, springs from the notion that the possibility of change is born in our most harrowing moments." Linkin Park
I find the one positive comment thing odd...haven't we heard at least 2 positive comments from radio stations or magazines already?
Everything about the new album has been positive.
I loved how I had no idea what to expect with "Minutes To Midnight" -- LP is a band that could do anything, and, so, here we are again, on the brink of hearing a new album and we've hardly any idea of what it sounds like. I wouldn't want a throwaway album that I could figure out right away, least of all from my favourite band. I want something new and challenging, something I could think about for a long time; they pretty much delivered that with the last album (at the very least, to ease us into the whole 'we're not the guys who made "Hybrid Theory" anymore' thing) and they'll definitely deliver that with this upcoming album, whether or not I even like it.
This is a band that isn't restricting themselves and isn't letting other people's perceptions and expectations restrict them and their art, and that really deserves respect.
They love performing, but they have to be away from their families for months on end to do it. I'd imagine that'd be very hard, especially with kids. That's the trade off though.
Outside that, they don't owe us anything and what their fanbase wants should never enter the equation when they create music.

Yea, because sticking to the same sound they had 10 years ago really helped Limp Bizkit stay relevant in today's music scene.
Seriously though, LP would lose my respect big time if they never changed their sound. I remember the first time I heard QWERTY and being completely underwhelmed because it had been about 3 years since Meteora and they sounds EXACTLY the same. There was no growth, there was no maturity, it was exactly the same. So I applaud LP for trying something new, even if I end up not liking it.

Yeah, like, there are a lot of bands I simply stopped liking because, while they'd have a good sound going, they never really evolved between albums and just became one-trick ponies.
The fact that this upcoming LP album will be even further from "Hybrid Theory" than "Minutes To Midnight" was is pretty cool to me - and the fact remains that they're still Linkin Park like they were before, so it'll be a progression from their past work, as "Midnight" was.

Just a thought here, but it's only 12:40 on the East Coast. When Linkin Park posted their message to fans about the pre-order a few days ago, it wasn't until around midnight Pacific time. I think there is a chance we could be hearing the song within the next few hours. If we've been told that "we who pre-ordered it" would hear it before anyone else, then it's safe to assume that we would hear it before Joe's MoH World Premiere tomorrow. (I'd assume the premiere of the MoH video is less than 12-16 hours away anyway so if they're true to their world, the next 16 hours could be crucial for us "pre-orderers") And if there are any legalities with Warner Brothers, it'll technically be August 1st, 2010 at 12:00 am PST and 3:00 am EST. So it's a waiting game and a theory, just a theory...
