    You can mute the lyrics if you want to but I'm talking about understanding the lyrics. Most of LP's lyrics are simple, so you don't need to have a Phd in English language to understand what they're about. :)

    Yeah, but the whole point is on how some of us don't really mind about the lyrics and pay more attention to the music.. I don't look at the lyrics with the depth many people do around here so I rarely judge a Linkin Park song by its lyrics, if the music is good, all will be fine with me.

    I remember that, when I first became a fan, I was obsessed with knowing and memorising the words throughout "Hybrid Theory", more than melodies or gtr lines

    I love memorizing the lyrics, what I'm not too obsessed with is analyzing their content. I can be happy with both simplistic messages or more complicated stuff, I don't really mind that much.

    Yeah ... I don't feel like I obsess over figuring out what everything means. For me, I usually listen to a song and find some kind of (personal) understanding about what the lyrics are saying automatically, without having to think too hard at all

    Linkin Park songs have never been puzzles to me. :)

    I rarely pay attention to the lyrics of rock music in general.

    I do to rap though, but if the beat is good, I can get passed a few corny lines.

    IMO opinion Living Things was boring after the 3rd listen.

    I hope Linkin Park do a heavy album. Now before you yell at me, know that I love all of their music. ATS was a groundbreaking and mesmerizing album. But I will always prefer Meteora and Hybrid Theory over their newer stuff., just my preference. One last heavy record will do it for me. Not to say it has to be NU-Metal.

    Then we are agreed. The songs on Living Things came across as... well, generic for lack of better terms.

    God, I really hope Recharged was LP getting dubstep out of their system. I'm sick of every band adding dubstep because it's trendy.

    I always imagine some label executive in a suit looking at a music record to be released and goes "Uh, just add some dubstep in there, the kids'll love it."

    I was pretty happy with LT's balance. There was some heavy, screamy stuff like LGM and Victimized, and then some great emotional, slow stuff like RU and Powerless. I hope the next album is the same, but even more extreme in emotions. I want less middle ground like In My Remains or Burn it Down, and instead really high energy heavy stuff like LITE juxtaposed with some stuff that sounds like Primo/Three Band Terror from LPU13.

    The good thing about HT was that the songs somehow belonged together. Having extremly heavy and extremly soft songs on one album just feels wrong. MTM was somehow like that. I hope they don't repeat it.

    I don't know, wasn't Living Things satisfying enough for that?

    Well, it wasn't exactly heavy.

    I agree with those of you who want at least one last "heavy" LP album. While "heavy" can imply various things, I believe that what we want in terms of a heavy album would be aggressive, intense instrumentation and hard-hitting lyrics coupled with the band's signature harsh vocals. Of course, we can't forget about the band's classic distorted power chords ;)

    LT is far far far away from being heavy. It has its (short) moments, but overall, when I listen to it from front to back, I doesn't feel kicked in the face at all. Not that it is important or whatever, but still, you can't describe this record with such a term. Energetic is one thing, heavy is another.
