With this new album out, it got me thinking about all of Linkin Park's albums and how much of an impact starting off and ending an album make on the overall product. I'm creating this thread to see how people rank the album openers and closers of all 7 Linkin Park Albums. My own opinion has been moved to page 2 but I'm sure this thread makes sense LPA COLLECTIVE TIER LIST Hello everyone. Thank you for participating in this thread so far I am taking @Mark 's idea and using a mathematical equation to generate an "LPA tier list."
