    A great album, and possibly their best! It's my personal equal favourite with Hybrid Theory.

    Not the greatest, but the most...interesting. Happy B-day, ATS.

    Definitely their best. It's definitely aged very well.

    Although A Thousand Suns is extremely overrated on this forum, it is by far the band's most ambitious piece of work. When They Come For Me still remains bizarre to this day, Waiting For The End is still absolutely beautiful, Burning in the Skies and Iridescent still claim the best lyrical content of the band's career, The Catalyst still has that epic buildup, and Blackout is still the greatest song they've ever made.

    And most importantly, A Thousand Suns is still a wonderfully blissful journey from start to finish.

    Not only my favorite Linkin Park album, but my favorite album of all time. When I listen to A Thousands Suns, it just sounds so complete to me. I don't get that feeling with any other album.

    To me it's no contest, their best album hands down, my second favorite album of all time, and incredibly polarizing.

    Too pop for most experimental fans, too experimental for most pop fans, interludes with speech samples, Shinoda addressing certain fans/critics, political, a new sound, and a front-to-back experience. Linkin Park showed they had a little something more in them with this album, and I'm sure I will always love this album as much as the first time I heard it.

    It's a great album and also well made, but apart from BITS and WTCFM, I don't feel like listening to it anymore...

    Recently, I've been listening to it to fall asleep (no joke lol). That to say it's not their best pump-up record. But on the other side, ATS is a great musical journey. Definitely their most weird and complex record to date.

    It certainly overshadows LIVING THINGS imo, but that's probably unfair given how recent the new album was still.

    By far their best album, and the best album I've ever heard. Waiting For The End, The Catalyst and Burning In The Skies are the best LP songs. IMO.
    And I could write A Thousand words on how good the album is, but I'll stop right here.
