I just wanted to let out all my thoughts about the band. there is no email addy for telling them personally so I do it right here. I am probably one of the first fans of linkin park. or should I say, I was? yeah, I WAS a fan, cause this band just making me crazy. when I saw 'one step closer' the first time on tv, I was like 'wow, this is a band, which just give a #### on all this celebrity #### and just playing their stuff'. I became a big fan, 'hybrid theory' is still one of my favourite longplayer ever. but then, they get famous. very famous. they released tracks like 'in the end' which get very popular, so everybody knews linkin park. I didnt say anything, I was happy about their success. but the #### that followed their success, that was horrible. the remix album was just a commercial hit, they just wanted to earn a few dollars more quickly. be honest guys: are you really sure that you like reanimation? i dont think so, cause the songs which were originally on hybrid theory became very ugly. but I thought, allright, it was just an experiment. I was waiting for the new record. meteora let me down. it was the same as hybrid theory, just like b-sides. the songs were more pop than rock. then the live album. show just one band, which released a live album after two records?!? and it wasnt a live album at all. it all sounds very good, too good for a normal live show. they worked on it, better up all the tracks until they didnt sound like live tracks. it was embarrasing. they released 5 (!!) tracks off of meteora. WHY? 3 were enough, why do they release so much? just to get more money? oh yeah. they called their last big tour the "meteora world tour 2004", but they toured through the us. I saw them live in berlin, and it sucked. I saw live concerts of the ozzfest tour, and they really rocked there. but in berlin? no, they didnt. it was more an entertainment show than a rock show. I missed the years 2000 and 2001. the years were they were original, just rocked for their fans, just do their thing. give a #### on more money, more selling records. I believed in a band, which are controlled by their record label.
