    I can see how LP tried to show their lighter side but the songs are ridiculous. I dunno if I'm even gonna bother ordering the package...might just get the online pass.

    It's seriously dire IMO. I know it's been blown out of proportion but what the fuck where they thinking?

    Uhm, yea. What's going on? I didn't even know the tracklisting or any information was released yet.

    I don't think the point of this cd was to show a "lighter side". It's just for fun, at least for the songs that i've heard, they do sound like the typical LPTV rip like The Wizard Song, Non Disclosure Agreement, etc.

    They did it just for fun. But even if it was like that, just for fun... it shows how these guys can make a catchy song out of crap: "PB N' Jellyfish" and "26 Lettaz In Da Alphabet" for example. Maybe they're beginning to understand that an overproduced sound/song does not always guarantee a good song.

    Apparently certain best buy stores across america are selling the packages early. A few people bought them and leaked the CD on to the net.

    An FYI to everyone before they buy it, the LPU CD is titled "mmm...cookies Sweet Hamster Like Jewels From America!"...and no, I'm not joking. It's 6 joke songs intended to show the bands lighter side but without seeming like an ungrateful SOB I think it's a real let down.

    I'd rather have live tracks and that really says something.

    EDIT: Mike adressed the fans about the cd with this:

    I personally like it, I think it shows that they still have their fantastic sense of humor and that they don't take themselves too seriously.

    I don't think Mike should've had to apologize for it. That's just ridiculous to me.

    Wait...what? You're shitting me. This is real? Some new user with just a couple posts posted a new thread with the LPU8 track listing and I deleted it from the moderation queue because I thought it was a joke. Oops :lol:

    No, its real, some best buy stores put it out early.

    If you know the name of the tracks, you can find most of them on youtube. =)

    Why does it seem like every time a new Linkin Park CD comes out, everyone forgets that you're not allowed to ask for mp3s here?

    It's because Mark over at LPLive led a fucking crusade against mike for no reason at all all because he didn't like it.

    Well I have been the subject previously of Mark's wrath, so I know what you mean by him leading a crusade.

    Poor Mike.
