    A thousand suns has 47 minutes only because of all the transitions and fillers.
    take apart 7 minutes since i dont take WJL and such as actual "songs"

    So this album has 35 minutes... 5 minutes less than the longest album made by LP
    *whine here* *underwhelming there* (put some "why is everything so heavy meme" in between)

    Guys please.

    I just think the band didn't make what you wanted them to make.

    Don't disagree with the overall sentiment but you can't just take a chunk of an album and say that it "doesn't count".

    That's like someone saying OML's actually under 30 minutes because they don't like Heavy or Battle Symphony and consider them "filler".

    To be honest, its clearly obvious that *cough* "tracks" like Jornada Del Muerto, Fallout, The Requiem are only there to give the album an atmosphere and transition between titles (or taken as an intro, like.... Forward at meteora)
    Now of course they COUNT but i would never consider them as actual songs anyway.

    (Now please dont tell me Forward is a real song, or i will cry)

    I think Linkin Park need to announce a Heavy Remix EP to unite the fanbase right about now. :kappa:

    Well this whole album cycle the band has been saying "every album we make is different" so that would be highly hypocritical of them...

    Then again so is this album cycle. So who knows?

    And Roads Untraveled/Until It Breaks has better lyrics than the half of OML that we've heard. I'm sorry but what's your point?

    Yeah, wouldn't it be nice to get an album from them that everyone can get behind? Has it technically ever been done? People always have problems with whatever they do.

    I'll laugh like hell if the songs we haven't heard yet are massive fanbase favorites and people demand more Linkin Pop similar to the shift when Light That Never Comes came out and was hated, and Darker Than Blood dropped and was beloved.

    No.

    Yep. ATS is 47 minutes long, period. Rest of tracks are MEANT to be there and there's a reason why LP released a full one-track version called "ATS Experience". So there's isn't such thing as "doesn't count" when one is speaking about a full album.. If we broke down its structure and talked about vocals and lyrics for songs, comparisons and such, then it may have a point excluding the interludes, but not in this context.

    In all honesty I liked ALTNC when it was released, and it was at one point my most played LP song. I like ALTNC more than Darker Than Blood. Just a random thought. :shrug:

    If that works for you fine, I love stuff like WJL so this math doesn't work for me. Despite that I am fine with whatever they release regarding length. Of course I would love much more tracks and much more length but obviously the band thought that at some point where they had to call it an album there weren't more tracks that suited the album or were worthy to be on there.

    This leak is taking so long to happen (yes yes blah blah previous albums leaked a couple days at most before release blah blah) that I feel we really need some more news.

    Derek, how's the review coming along? :lol:

    I remember the acrimony when Meteora's album length was revealed. Oh man, people were pissed they were getting less than Hybrid Theory.

    Out of curiosity, how was the vibe of people back in the day? I think I was too young to observe or use the internet then. :lol:

    (or is it something better left unsaid or un-remembered lmao)

    Take the contrariness of the current fanbase. Now make everyone 15 years old.

    I don't know how the mods at the LPMB ever did it.

    Anyone remember the huge problems people had with Somewhere I Belong being "an In The End repeat"?
