You joined here just to bash them and threaten to leave if the next album wasn't up to your standards. Yeah, that's sure sticking by them, alright. Instead of trying to enjoy a single thing they put out, I'm willing to bet your mind just says it's shit because it's different, and not "Hybrid Theory". You haven't gotten over their style shift, thus creating a mental block preventing you from enjoying both M2M or ATS--- it's either that, or you were just in it for rap/rock, HT style. You're entitled to your opinion, of course, as I am entitled for mine, and my opinion is that I find this ridiculous. Try revisit Minutes and A Thousand Suns, and chuck HT and Meteora out of the window as you do. Listen to it with fresh ears. Listen to it without comparing it to what came before.
