Says the guy who has a drawing from Mike from the OSC days as his avatar, Hybrid Theory lyrics in his title, and a Meteora era winamp skin as his signature pic. Have you even given their new music a true listen, or are you hopelessly waiting for a return to Meteora? More importantly, are you sure your headphones are plugged in? Does your music library include limpbizkit, KoRn, Insane Clown Posse and several other nu-metal bands too by chance? Sorry, but a part of me has a hard time taking you seriously...considering that Linkin Park's last three records were the most critically acclaimed of their career, and the most adventurous of any of their 5 albums. Yeah Hybrid Theory was a classic, but that's only cause it was different for the time. When you release an exact clone of it to follow, with a mashup EP that also rehashes that old sound, it's suddenly not as fresh. So yes, LITE is better than at least two of their albums, because it actually did something "different" with the classic Linkin Park sound.
