It's clearly more of a personal choice. There is no point in one trying to prove another wrong. To me, A Thousand Suns was their best album till date. I can still listen to the album non stop. Living Things was good. It was a shift from ATS since it went back to a more commercial and familiar sound. It still featured more experimentation than Meteora ever did. Wonder how this album would sound. From what we've heard from Mike so far about the state of Rock music and then this album update, it seems as though this album will be high energy in a more rock-ish way I'd assume.
