We all discuss what we want from Linkin Park nonstop on this website. There has been threads made dating back to Fall 2012 about the kind of vibes you would like to see on their new album. I just wanted to share my own person ideas with what I would like, going more in depth, while keep the discussion fresh as opposed to digging up a buried thread from last month. I'm looking for a mix of everything on this album, but with less electronics. I am kind of over their progressive stage because they just aren't the right band for it. Just because they are Linkin Park, they don't have to put out simple structured radio anthems..but I'd like them to maintain a plain sound. I feel like another album full of weird structures and ideas would be expanding on their 2008-2010 era and we kind of already got that. I also would like them to tone down the electronics. We all call Mike the brain of the band, and back then the band themselves called him The Glue. We don't need gorilla glue in Linkin Park anymore. To my knowledge they all can play various instruments so I would like to same them be played. No more loops, no more distorted synths run through a never-ending connection of cords, no more bullshit. I think they're best sound sonically was Reanimation. It was less nu-metal than the two studio releases, it had more piano, strings, and electronics that didn't swallow the song. I want them to kind of go for that.
