LP always try to convince us that they can't be labeled. But, in fact, they do have a label/style: simple/catchy lyrics. If you ask me, i don't enjoy so much "poetic lyrics" or "pseudo profound" as someone said. The raw writing and primal rhymes feel pure to me, and that's what i expect from Linkin Park. Raw feelings, something very close to the real world. Those poetic and metaphorical lyrics don't match with LP as it's "label" is about natural/real feelings. To me, poetical writing is something to progressive music. And for that the instrumental must be fucking technical and complex to match the words.
