Yeah, I would hate it if LP just borrowed from trendy music. Hybrid Theory - an album capitalizing on the super popular nu-metal movement of combining rap vocals with rock instrumentations. Meteora - an album capitalizing on the super popular Hybrid Theory and cloning it nearly song-for-song. Minutes to Midnight - an album capitalizing on the resurgence of more traditional alternative rock. A Thousand Suns - an album capitalizing on the growing popularity of electronic-based music. LIVING THINGS - an album capitalizing on revitalizing the sound that the majority of their fans want while also trying to capitalize on the growing and popular singer-songwriter folk movement. The Hunting Party - an album that intentionally tries to cater to fans of heavy rock and metal music. But you're right, I hate it when LP doesn't do something original!
