    Will this album be the more agressive A Thousand Suns? (meaning it will have a more noticeable guitar) I like the word 'concept' in the interview, always wanted them to make another concept album like A Thousand Suns because in my opinion they're good at it and A Thousand Suns was great! I've always believed it could be done better though! Maybe they will prove themselves with this album (concept-wise), even though ATS was epic. Also a few 6 minute length songs is great aswell! I highly believe this album will take my number #1 spot (A Thousand Suns) and make it it's own.


    EDIT: Linkin Park just posted this interview with Mike on Facebook:

    Have we already talked about this interview by Mike?:
    http://www.hiphopdx.com/index/video...he-kendrick-got-robbed-team-from-the-grammy-s

    He states when asked about more collaborations: "No I don’t think so, only Rakim. It’s hard to follow that up with anyone else. I actually had a hard time rapping on any song after he came in, like Jesus Christ, how can I pretend I can rap after this guy’s been in the room? It was inspiring though. Honestly it forced me to go and take a long look at my lyrics and really push myself to write better stuff. Having him there and seeing him do it was inspiring. But the album will be released this Summer. At least one more song will be given out as well before Summer comes. Thats new info too, haven't told anyone else."

    Are they playing with us or what :rastamike:


    Edit: Sorry LinkinTraj, just realized you posted it too :)

    No problem! I was like 'what are you saying now Mike?' too. Like... I thought someone else said there'd be other collabs, but now Mike says there's only Rakim.

    DX: Will you be doing any more collaborations for the album?
    Mike: Nope.

    (A week ago) Chester: yea we will be doing a couple of collabs on this album which is unusual.

    —------------------
    (Another trolling moment):

    (Chester 1 week ago): the album title is out there.
    (Chester yesterday): we do not have a album title yet.

    -------------------

    What the hell is linkin park doing in these interviews?

    How well-known is this hiphopDX dude? To me, it all sounds fake. Even if they are playing with us, I think most of this interview are made up. The way Mike presented the artists he enjoy listening to... Or the summer release sentence out of nowhere... well, I'm not sold.

    Well, LP's official Facebook page posted links to those interviews. So, I guess they're pretty reliable.

    I'm guessing there will be more collabs (Mike hinted at another guest in one of his tweets), but no more rappers, seeing as Mike siad it would be hard to follow up with another guest like Rakim.

    Jeez, when it's a band I mention y'all take me up on saying what you want, but when I make a pithy joke about NSYNC I was suddenly the forum asshole? Not that I like Limp Bizkit either, but talk about hypocritical.

    Just remember that only one person expressed that opinion in this thread and that the rest of us remained on-topic. :)

    (Chester next week): Album? What album? You must be mistaken...

    (Mike 2 weeks from now): Guilty All the Same? Huh? I don't know what you're talking about...

    Tonight Mike Shinoda listened through the songs for the album and realized he found rock to be too acoustic. Needs more layers between modern and past. So he scrapped everything and started from scratch. Guilty All The Same will be promoted to a one time single EP and a new album will be announced June 2015.

    Carnivores Tour will be canceled like the STP shows since the studio work has been delayed just "slightly"

    What the fuck is with people suddenly accusing every interview of being fake? It's happened twice in this thread alone. :lol:

    I just think they are trying to be all shush shush about the guest vocals. They probably don't want people over thinking it, expecting another person on the same level as Rakim and then be disappointed. Fans tend to do that A LOT.

    In other news, GATS charts at 138 in the UK singles chart(That's gotta be the lowest debut of LP's lead single). Not that I was surprised since the single was released unannounced. There are still many who don't know LP has a single out.
