    Or better yet the guy that Kanye's collaborating with, Jon Brion. That'd be bonkers.

    I think it'd be cool, because the hip-hop side of LP would emerge more from such a pairing.

    Not that the rock would suffer or anything.

    There is also the question of where LP will go after they get out of the Warner contract.

    "Wishful thinking"? I don't think LP being on Warner is bad for the fans. I don't think it's good either, but I don't see any bad in it.

    LP on Warner = No new music.
    LP off Warner = New music.

    I don't see your logic behind that... one way or another, they're going to have to release another album. If they have to stay on Warner and don't release a new album Warner will just sue the pants off of them and make life a living hell for them, forcing them to make a new album.

    Chances are LP will just release stuff just to get out of the contract... like live shows or something. I could see them releasing Rock Am Ring on DVD or something to that effect. They won't necessarily have to make new albums, just release material.

    I don't think they can do that for the next 7 albums or whatever it is they owe. Warner will just sue for not living up to contract expectations. One or two albums, sure... not 4 or more.

    Well, they're in a 10 album deal.

    Hybrid Theory
    Reanimation
    Meteora
    Live In Texas
    Collision Course

    5 filler albums sound appropriate.

    Just rerelease HT, Reanimation, and Meteora in 5.1 Digital Surround, have a greatest hits CD (HAHAHAHA) and a Rock Am Ring DVD and they are out.

    That'd be gangsta as fuck if they all released them on the same day. Like "We out, bitch!"

    Reanimation is already out in 5.1. They should do one with all 20 videos this time, though.

    Frat Party counts as well. It's 10 release deal, not a 10 album deal.

    I know... that's why I said "whatever it is they owe."

    For some reason, I don't think Warner is going to allow Linkin Park to do that. And if you say, 'well, then LP can just sue', you're wrong -- they don't command that kind of pull, and they are the artist, not the label -- any judge will side with Warner.

    Yes, because a company has the power to control what a band does. That seems very smart.

    What's that called? Uh... slavery?

    Fine, don't believe me... but artists have a contract to uphold, as do labels. This is exactly why Linkin Park is suing Warner -- they state that they're not getting their fair share of funds, support and publicity. Who's to say Warner won't win and counter-sue for Linkin Park's lack of activity?

    It's the corporate world -- pretty close to slavery, yup.

    Just what I was thinking. Brilliant idea. Rick Rubin could help Linkin Park go further with their sound. Don Gilmore is a great producer... for bands starting out. But once the bands Gilmore produces get mainstream and come back to him for more production on their follow-up efforts, the sound remains the same. Linkin Park need a producer to help them move forward and Rick Rubin would definetly be a good choice.

    I could see Kayne West producing one or maybe two (stretching it) but not a whole album.

    It'll suck if Kanye produces LP's next album. It just doesn't go good together, Don Gilmore should do they're next album. Then again, if LP's next album is a stupid mash-up or remix, then I don't care who produces the album because I won't buy it anyway.
