Not to be a douche, but techno is not the flavor of the year(s), but EDM (Electronic dance music) is. Before that, Dubstep was FOTY. Techno is long way gone (disappeared at the end of the 90's (?)). You do have a point though, a lot of people have changed their music taste. For real, if LP released a Hybrid Theory 2, I think it would have less sales/recognition than another Living Things. Personally I wish we could change/go back to some pure, loud, rock. Even if I totally enjoy the LT/ATS albums. I think the album will have a good/okay sales record - though I don't think it will be played on the radio very much (including rock stations). Hoping to be wrong though. Regarding the lyric video I think it was horribly bad. The videos from LT was awesome, and now this? As a graphical designer it hurts, haha.
