    I'm still not buying the whole "WB gets in the way of LP's creative process" to be honest with you. I thought at first but over time I just don't think so and whatever the band did, was on their own.

    Well if the band itself is responsible for dumbing down their own music, I lose a ton of respect for them. Hope you're wrong.

    We don't really know what's the deal behind closed curtains, or to what extent WB "makes an opinion". But one thing I'm absolutely sure is that the fanbase is pinning too much things on Warner, as if somehow label representatives took the instruments from them during sessions and said "you should play like this" (< metaphorically).

    LPU12 launched at 8pm for me, so we'd have about 4 hours to go if it's like that.

    If only the LPA could snag an interview with Mike or something.

    Chester's MOATS speech... followed by Living Things.
    Meteora demos vs Meteora final songs.
    Primo vs I'll Be Gone.
    ... and so on...

    How can you be so sure those were changed because of WB? I mean anyone can try and "infer" things but you're using them as hard evidence :lol:, where's the support to that theory? Chester's speech is one thing, and these are another.

    It's just what I believe...
    also LP is owned by WB. and WB is a corporation which puropose is making money.
    They gave some freedom to LP on ATS and it was their least selling album. That's why I believe LT was the way it was.

    It's not exactly an irrational theory though. Why else is the final product in LP's album always sounding more cookie cutter and pre-packaged than what we hear in demos? Who else wants songs with potential of radio play and commercial success? Everything I've heard Mike say in interviews about the music process makes it hard to believe he would make such calls.

    Oh didn't you hear? According to a person on twitter who doesn't work on the site, but somehow knows everything about LPA....Mike did an interview with AltWire, and LPA took joint credit cause the "same guy runs both sites".

    :O

    SCANDAL!!!

    Listening to these makes me really confused. The demos always seem way more creative soundwise compared to what actually goes onto the final studio album. I have no idea how Primo became the I'll Be Gone that we know.
