    Fans rejoice! Linkin Park emcee Mike Shinoda is set to produce Linkin Park's next album.

    Billboard.com has just revealed that Mike, fresh off producing the acclaimed debut album from his hip-hop side project Fort Minor will be manning the switches of Linkin Park's follow-up to 'Meteora'. Shinoda recently commented that the band wanted to take control of their own sound, so what better way than to do it themselves?

    Shinoda commented; "Rap/rock and new metal have been used to describe Linkin Park. But if you think of a song like 'Breaking the Habit,' it would be kind of difficult to describe that as rap/rock. It's not very accurate. On the next record, we're looking to break away from that label even further than we have in the past"

    The article also goes on to explain that Warner and Linkin Park are resolving their differences over contract disputes, after the band filed a public statement earlier this year announcing they would not resume work on their new album until negociations were concluded.

    I'm so glad Don Gilmore is not involved with this project. It just shows that Linkin Park is taking this album seriously.

    Sucks for Don though. A Linkin Park album is probably his only paycheck.

    Hardly. Gilmore is involved with a few other bands. I can't think of any off the top of my hand, but I know I've seen his name mentioned on Blabbermouth.

    Still. Do you think those other bands actually sell like Linkin Park does? Sure, he'll probably makes some money, but a Linkin Park album is probably the biggest portion of his income.

    Which leads me right into a current thought of mine.

    Linkin Park is Mike/Chester & Co.'s big money maker. They know they can release a CD full of Mariah Carey covers and it'll sell well. Hardcore fans might be pissed, but the teenies would most likely eat it up. My point is, they know they don't have to transform into this fucked up time signature, complex lyric band, you know?

    LP = $$$.

    That's why they have all these sideprojects. To get all that creative energy out there in the open. Although I have a feeling Chester's thing with the guys from Orgy is going to be horrible, because, well, it's Orgy.

    Yeah but notice how one song on their new record is a complete rip-off of Numb and others sound like Linkin Park?

    There's a pattern here.

    How does a band sound like Linkin Park? I mean, isn't that sounding like thousands of other bands out there?

    They don't exactly have their own sound, you know.

    Their sound was new when it first came out Casey. And dont say they sounded like limpbizkit cause Chester didn't sing about ladies and 'rollin, rollin, rollin'.

    I somewhat agree with you on how they can make a shitty CD and it will sell (Meteora), but I disagree with you with the side-projects thing. Somewhere really deep down my stomach, I think Linkin Park really wants to change their reputation of a shitty band.

    The Rising Tied proved to us that 1/6 of Linkin Park can make quality music. However, this isn't going to be a rap record. So anything can happen.

    And yes, Orgy does suck.

    You're right. He sang about 12 year old girls and "pain", "wounds", and "heal".

    Which brings me to my next point...

    Linkin Park as a whole sucks at writing good, creative lyrics. The lyrics on "Hybrid Theory" don't count because Mark Wakefield and Mike wrote the majority of those lyrics. If you don't believe me look in the booklet.

    No, they didn't sound like Limpbizkit. Mike is a better rapper than that.

    Sounded like a worse version of Korn, to be honest.

    Best LP news I've heard in a long, long time. I've been starting to care less and less about them -- hopefully this is a great move.
