    Dear god I hope you're not taking Mike's words out of context.

    ...Dear god I hope you don't think those words mean "HT PT3 GUYS".

    Spoiler: They don't

    19 pages of arguing about the title and very little said about Mike's post on how they approached the album. Sounds about right.

    Maybe its just me, but I just don't care enough about the title to give a shit.

    Regardless, I'm ecstatic for this album. Tomorrow is going to be a big day.

    Do you guys think amazon etc. will get previews tomorrow? If they do that's gonna suck. Im going to do my best to avoid all leaks and previews of the rest of the album.

    I don't think previews will be up so soon. But stay strong my friend, you have the determination and will power to persevere. It's a big challenge to take upon yourself but the gratification at the end is like pure ecstasy.

    I like "Living Things"
    It sounds Hybrid. It sounds like a combination of all that is Linkin Park - a Living thing. Tomorrow should be a big day. Its already Monday here in Australia but knew that I wouldn't get new music till Tuesday!

    Hope the release date is a short wait. I feel more hyped for this one than I was for ATS.

    No I don't ... thought what Mike said couldn't be more clear right ? (" the real “hybrid theory” — not the album with that name, but the idea").
    Anyway I'm not one of those guys who listen only to old LP and with each new album they whine why it's not HT nr2 (3 ? .. whatever). Actually I hope they will never return to those exact sounds again, to all the teen-angst lyrics, simple song structures and that strange feeling I had with every song that it's almost exactly like the previous one. Don't get me wrong, I like those albums and they introduced me to Linkin Park but what I enjoy the most about the band now is that they evolve with each new record, always looking for new sounds, making unique songs that can't be easily put into one genre.

    So to be perfectly clear now : I expect a record that will blend all those creative sounds, great ideas and more meaningful/mature lyrics that ATS had with energy that HT was full of. Just as Mike said sth that would use all the tools in the toolbox to create that ultimate mix.(This is 50 % ATS, 30 %, M2M 20 % HT, and a 100% reason to remember the name :lol: )

    If you are actually able to withstand the temptation of listening to snippets of every song on the album, you are basically the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Himself. No normal person could do that.

    Agreed with all this.

    Your post just made it vague as to what you meant ;)

    I hope there's a song on the album called "All Living Things ________" or something. I think that'd be cool to have an excerpt from a song as the album title.

    You're in a thread full of Linkin Park fans. The sad thing is, your post sounds exactly like people who are 100% serious.
