Did you even read Mark's post? It's true. The band themselves have written off Meteora as Hybrid Theory Part Two. And they've also gone on record as saying that they made Meteora the way it is because they wanted to show that they could write another album like Hybrid Theory. Hence why we're all saying that Meteora is creatively lacking. Which translates to a low point in any artist's career. For any musician, artist, painter, or anyone immersed in creating art, retreading on something you've already done isn't something to be proud of. In a musically objective sense - not regarding sales or any other factor that could be considered 'success' - Meteora is their worst.
