    You obviously never heard their song "Another Faithful Day".

    Does a person's religion offend you that much? It shouldn't. He's not telling you to believe what he believes.

    Not at all. I just don't want to hear about it in Linkin Park songs.

    I may be exercising a double standard when I say I'm fine with politics and not religion. Oh well, lol.

    They should write songs about the illuminati's influence in the world and conspiracy stuff.
    Sometimes, knowing where you donít want to go is all the direction you need.

    Again, like I stated in a previous post, I hate when bands 'tell me' what to think of the song. Yes as someone quoted me said, they are making the songs THEY want, but as you do that, sometimes you alienate people. While I love everything LP has put out, some hate the new stuff and that's ok, it's called direction, evolution, etc. Putting religion and politics in songs to me is taking a step back lyrically. Yes, I'm atheist, but I'm tolerant that anyone can believe whatever they want let it be god, allah, a unicorn or nothing like myself, but when artists include direct lyrics in their songs, it's a chokehold and often skipped in any form of playback. Don't get me wrong, there are some 'christian' bands that I like and some I hate and those that I hate are the ones who will specifically say "God" or "Jesus" in the song. Again, I much prefer the 'broad' lyrics relating to their topics that anyone can identify directly or indirectly with them. Just my opinion, two cents, rant, however you want to take it.

    To be honest, I'm ok with politics with LP because I have a sense that they share my political views, haha.

    What's key is that Chester acknowledges how political songs can sound preachy. So hopefully they won't sound preachy.

    Pfft, any conspiracy buff worth their salt knows they're part of it themselves. They made the hand signs and everything. Every Thursday evening they sit at a big table with Cliff Richard and Kanye West and talk about making potholes.

    I guess lyrics about politics can work if done right.

    Currently in politics: Former U.S. Representative Anthony Weiner... Should be an interesting song...

    A more acoustic album/not distorted album would be different than any of that. I know Chester and Mike both love Arcade Fire, and to be honest the way Chester describes the album (so far, still very early in the process), it sounds kind of like Arcade Fire.

    Maybe more stripped down, political without being preachy. But who knows.

    Music is a reflection of self. Why would you want someone to restrict their feelings and emotions in a song? There's a lot of gangbanging music that alienates me, but thats the life some people live, if thats the music they want to express, its whatever, just give me a good beat.

    Same question to Dumbledore, I already posted, too much work to go back edit and quote.

    If only there could be a Reanimation 2.0 in between, I'd be more than happy.

    I've recently completed an analysis of the comments I value lowly in this thread, and have compiled a list of things LP should do to make the posters of these comments mad, and thus satisfy me.

    Ladies and gentlemen, here's what the new album should sound like:

    - Absolutely no beat at all whatsoever.
    - Very specific lyrics. As narrowed down as possible.
    - On that note, do not write moody songs. Bitches love moody songs. Fuck bitches.
    - Namedrop God and Jesus at any opportunity.
    - Then tell us what to think about the song... in the song.
    - Whine about Bush as much as humanly possible.
    - Make the music 'strange and boring'. Avoid trying to sound 'beautiful.'
    - Sound absolutely nothing like the original Linkin Park (you knew this one was coming).
    - A politically charged speech. In every song. And then put one of those speeches on the front cover of the album. And name the album after a speech. And replace all documentary audio with clips from speeches that have no context at all.
