    Re-reading that again really depresses me a bit. Thats like ATS experimentation there! With Spanish guitar! Why did they feel they had to change it!? :cocainefan:

    I like Meteora, but it is my least favorite LP album out of the 5. I think I only like it because I kind of grew up listening to it, just like I did with Hybrid Theory. The lyrics aren't great and a lot of the song sound the same. I used to think Lying From You and Figure.09 and From The Inside all sounded the same at first, not sure why now.

    My grandfather is from Greece, and he has been to the actual ''Meteora''. It's a group of monestaries, perched upon a big rock formation, basically. He said people go there to pray and stuff like that.

    I wish someone could link that. I would really like to read it, especially if it's a bit different than the one included in the Meteora art booklet.

    On BTH: "Basically, the way the song started was as an interlude. It was going to be an instrumental track that was ten minutes long."

    I mean c'mon, you act like I don't exist. Just like I act like this album doesn't exist. I see what you did there.

    I have problems with Meteora, but I do enjoy listening to it sometimes.

    I personally think is Meteora is my favorite album. I'm not gonna say if it's best or worst, because there is a little bit of both on every album LP has put out. It does have simple lyrics, and the songs sometimes do sound repetitive in sound, but I really enjoy listening to it.

    I've heard you think it's alright, but you love people's reactions when you scold it. :shifty:

    Y'know I like the song we ended up getting, even the lyrics for it, but yes this does have to happen to some other song at least.

    BTH is my favourite off Meteora, I would be disappointed with a ten minute instrumental.

    I'd be disappointed if Linkin Park made a completely derivative sophomore album that doesn't achieve anything new and is completely corporate in nature.

    Yeah, for example I love ATS the way it is, but it would have been the perfect time for a pink floyd -esque 10 minute interlude in the middle of it.
