    During that time fans did get Collision Course, The Rising Tied, and QWERTY. If there were a similar gap, I'd imagine we'd have seen another side project or a few singles to keep us occupied. Mike specifically seems to be always keeping himself busy, Chester too.

    It's already been over two years since THP, to me it feels like it's only been out since last summer. To think a new album may be here within half a year, it'll be here before I know it.

    That's true, forgot to mention those parallel works. And i'm with you, THP release seems so fresh to me.

    Interesting negative review of A Thousand Suns. Rather than just spewing words about how it's not Hybrid Theory, he actually goes into detail track-by-track on how the album falls apart. However his biggest argument is the cliched "a fanbase doesn't have to like everything a band makes", and I wholeheartedly disagree how he believes WTCFM and Blackout are horrible tracks.

    I wish they hadn't gone for such a harsh vocal take with it, I still don't know what they were going for with that. Chester's vocals clash with the rest of the song. It's a shame too because that song contains some of my favorite lyrics they've written to date.

    The live versions are really nice, Chester's softer vocals really do the song justice. Shame they've stopped playing it.



    I wish the album version was more like this.

    I like Chester's vocals and I don't really see them as "harsh". A little gruffness doesn't qualify as harsh. It's not like he went and did screams on the track. Heck, he doesn't even use the amount of gruffness he usually adds to songs.

    In comparison to their other softer tracks on the album, it sort of threw me off, personally. He doesn't sound like that at all on "Waiting for the End" or "Iridescent". It's like he's sort of shouting the lyrics when to me it doesn't feel necessary for a soft, acoustic song. Being an acoustic piece, I imagine the "rawness" of Chester's voice was a stylistic choice, but I find it a little too much. Actually kind of reminds of THP in that regard.

    I can see why many like the album version, but every time I hear the "Remember you're loved, and you always will be. The smell of tea will bring you right back home" and the "Love keeps us kind" parts, I wince a bit. Lyrically, it's one my favorites, but because of this I rarely listen to the song unless I'm doing a full ATS playthrough.

    The "smell of tea" lyric is actually "melody". :lol: Do we have a thread for misheard LP lyrics? I swear we do. I like that one best out of all the ones I've heard haha.

    I think The Messenger works and really conveys the emotion best with the more gruff vocals.

    This is very random, but I feel this is a better place to post this, but I found this recent photo of Mark Wakefield, ex Linkin Park singer, on the Velvet Hammer Management instagram, where he works. There's a few other photos of him on the Instagram page. Pretty sure this is him, he looks like an older picture from the Xero group pic.

    This is just too realistic.

    Yes I did, but I wanted to get people's thoughts on it. It's been hard trying to find a recent photo of Mark, all the others were extremley obscured.
