    well all LP efforts have been number one with a bullet and after all their build up and promotion they will have a fourth number 1 record and definitely multi platinum not to mention packed stadiums waiting to see them perform since their live show is second to none

    Commercial is overrated. However, with the way reviewers are hyping it up, I expect it to be at least multi-platinum by next year.
    Provided it does leak, I'm assuming tomorrow.

    i smell another number 1 album and "Waiting For The End" to be the 10th number 1 single =) Idk how they do it even after some hate for The Catalyst, it still made it...but i have confidence that A Thousand Suns and Waiting For The End will both hit number 1! =)

    If A Thousand Suns reaches #1, it will be LP's 3rd #1 album, not 4th. If I'm not mistaken, Hybrid Theory peaked at #2, despite it's success.

    The song is great. Similar to TC there appears to be two songs smashed together. TC is successful at this but it seems odd on Blackout. The 2nd song is similar to LOATR remix as far as beat/ pace. Both songs are great just very odd put together on the same track. The 2nd half probably would have been best as another song but hey, if you listen to this "album style" it isn't going to matter.

    HT was the No. 1 selling album of 2001 though despite never peaking at No. 1. I think we've gotta count it as a No. 1 album because of that.

    My thoughts on the preview clips.

    01. The Requiem
    Rating of what I hear: 9/10
    Excitement for full track: 100%
    Thoughts: Its a freakish sounding track because of the choir.

    02. The Radiance
    Rating of what I hear: 8/10
    Excitement for full track: 90%
    Thoughts: Great speech - that last sentence in it is fucking awesome, odd sounds in the background.

    03. Burning In The Skies - Top Track!
    Rating of what I hear: 10/10
    Excitement for full track: 100%
    Thoughts: Mike singing is amazing - his lyrics are amazing. Chester's chorus is very cool sounding. Emotional sound.

    04. Empty Spaces
    Rating of what I hear: 8/10
    Excitement for full track: 60%
    Thoughts: Great atmosphere, the war sounds seem to just appear. Fell like I have already heard the full track, which I practically have.

    05. When They Come For Me
    Rating of what I hear: 9/10
    Excitement for full track: 100%
    Thoughts: Love Mikes rap, not a fan of the beat sound. Chorus is pretty good.

    06. Robot Boy - Top Track!
    Rating of what I hear: 10/10
    Excitement for full track: 100%
    Thoughts: Amazing vocals with a great effect. Emotional sounding.

    07. Jornada del Muerto
    Rating of what I hear: 9/10
    Excitement for full track: 100%
    Thoughts: Similar if not the same vocal effect to those in Robot Boy. Great sounding everywhere else.

    08. Waiting For The End - Top Track!
    Rating of what I hear: 10/10
    Excitement for full track: 100%
    Thoughts: Chester's vocals sound very good - dual vocals with what might be Mike is awesome.

    09. Blackout - Top Track!
    Rating of what I hear: 10/10
    Excitement for full track: 100%
    Thoughts: Fucking awesome until 8 seconds into the preview when it sort of changes into a remix.

    10. Wretches & Kings - Top Track!
    Rating of what I hear: 10/10
    Excitement for full track: N/A

    11. Wisdom, Justice and Love
    Rating of what I hear: 10/10
    Excitement for full track: 100%
    Thoughts: Awesome emotional sounding, great speech which turns into an alien like speech. Last words "Wisdom, Justice and Love" is very cool.

    12. Iridescent
    Rating of what I hear: 10/10
    Excitement for full track: 100%
    Thoughts: Very happy sounding song. Nice verse.

    13. Fallout
    Rating of what I hear: 9/10
    Excitement for full track: 90%
    Thoughts: The vocals seem pretty good, but the robot effect doesn't do much for me.

    14. The Catalyst - Top Track!
    Rating of what I hear: 10/10
    Excitement for full track: N/A
    Thoughts: Great quality. Amazing vocals from both Mike and Chester.

    It was the best selling album of the year, yes, but you can't call an album #1 if it didn't place a top the Billboard 200. Hybrid Theory and Reanimation peaked at #2, while Meteora and Minutes to Midnight peaked at #1, in the first week. Sadly, I'll be very surprised if A Thousand Suns reaches #1, mainly due to the critique Minutes to Midnight received.

    I like reading track by track reviews like these. Our views on the preview clips are pretty similar...can't wait for this to come in the mail :D

    Couple additions to what you've judged already.
    1. Awesome portion of the song with a creepy womenly version of Mike's phrase "God bless us everyone..." Honestly THE best opener I've ever heard to an album. My thoughts after hearing the entire song was, I'm being prepped to head out to war in 2050. Epic Terminator like ride that gets you freaking pumped!
    5. Bad 30 second clip. Full song flows much better! Reminds of rave scene in The Matrix Reloaded fast paced and slo mo at the same time...
    8. This song is the total package. It has EVERYTHING!
    9. Badass breakdown simiar to NIN "The Great Destroyer" (check it out!) 2nd portion of the song is good but should be a standalone track BUT during the 'album' experience it wont matter right?!?
    11. Wisdom, justice and love repeated 4-5 times at the end in a robotic voice. I hope the 5 second pause comes after this song because it really fucking hits you and WILL make you take a step back.
    12. Commercial IMO. First listen was disappointed because the LPTV led me in a different direction but a second listen proves that I do love LPs non-aggressive songs just as much!
    13. Steven Hawking LOLZ
    15. Did NOT get HOW vibe from this song. I think that song is a little underwhelming on that cd. This is totally stripped which fits perfectly as the ender with the whole story line. MUCH MORE powerful than HOW.

    Ive have always wondered. Did MTM loose more fans then it gained? I have never in my life heard someone say they started listening to Linkin Park because of MTM only them say they stopped listening to them

    There's actually a handful of people that started with MTM, some are in here. I stopped listening to after MTM, but not because I didn't dislike it, but because I knew "this" album was coming. I love the lyrics in MTM, just didn't dig the sound. This one the sound is catching my attention, I am hoping but I feel confident enough the lyrics will also be as good.

    Because they got a shit ton of fans with the commercial success of LOATR, they picked up a lot of fans from the singles where as before they had album fans which is why they were reluctant to let Itunes carry their catalog.
