    Yeah that'd be awesome if they release the alternate versions like they did with MTM.

    I think some of you are complaining that we suck up to the band and just like everything they do -- but, if you've hung around here for more than five seconds, you'll see we bitch about stuff all the time.

    Everyone has an opinion and the right to express it. A lot of people like the cover art we're seeing ... but, then, also, a whole lot of people don't - so it should be obvious that, as a community, we don't just blindly accept everything Linkin Park does just because they do it. We do a lot of criticising here and, as fans, we have a right to that. :)

    As has been said, though, in this case, we don't have all the facts just yet in terms of what this cover art is and how it relates to the music.

    I kinda like it... I dont love it, i love HT art and M.
    MTM was alright
    But ATS, so far isn't so cool. But im pretty sure they will make me chance my mind. Because Mike said that this album would have some dope art, and i have faith in him!

    I am still in love with this cover. It means a lot to me and I myself honestly get a lot of meaning out of it.

    One way I interpret it is, (which is in itself a whole other interpretation) that no matter how many people look at it people will have a different idea as to what it is or if it is good or bad or awful. There can be a thousand different interpretations which cause debate and intrigue.. Which are all equal to A thousand suns.

    I hope I expressed myself correctly here.

    Also I agree that saying "This sucks" should be just as acceptable as saying "This is awesome" Because really, I hate censorship and as long as no one is flaming other members of this board then all should be okay. That isn't to say no one should say "Linkin Park have gotten worse and I don't like them anymore" because I also agree that it is just as valid as saying "Linkin Park are awesome and continue to grow" There's definitely a double standard here on opinions and to attack someone who doesn't like what LP are doing is just non-sensible to me. If anyone hates the art, hates the sound, then I don't see why they can't express that opinion. As long as they do it in a respectable and coherent manner and are not just saying OMG LINKIN PARK SUC!!!!!!!

    Well I think I have ranted long enough .. :lol:

    so good day.

    Saying "this sucks" has always been acceptable here - hell, I think it's largely the norm, really, it's certainly not something new for LPA at all. If anything, around here, people get more crap from others if they're happy with something the band has done than if they're not.

    But, for the most part, everyone goes about expressing themselves in an intelligent way, and that's what puts this fan community above all others for me.

    If I remember correctly, didn't Joe Hahn mention that the new album will have some interactive visual thingy?
    Sorry, my memories quite vague.

    Funny you say that. The main reason why I hate this image is 'that' very reason, it looks like a face.
