    Well, I would have agreed with this if BITS had been released after Meteora. But that wasn't the case. You wrote that LP was knowd for head-banging and screaming and stuff, but at the time of ATS release, they had already released a record full of power ballads 2 years ago. If I compare BITS to songs like In Pieces or Shadow of the Day, I can't see much progression there. There is one, but it's not revolutionary. I've always considered BITS a kind of traditional LP song with its catchy Chester's chorus, but presented in a more soft way.

    The way it's different from MTM is in the patience. MTM, although a lot softer than the first two albums, is still more about big poppy choruses. This makes the songs trend "down, up, down, up" meaning the verses are quieter and then the choruses are big. BITS is just one steady trend upwards, and you are right that two or three songs on MTM do this as well. Most songs on A Thousand Suns really make you earn a payoff instead of throwing walls of sound at you repeatedly. Those little things can end up making a lot of difference on how a song hits you.

    So Linkin Park is pissing me off right now because they're working with techno DJs that do dubstep and drugs

    I hate how LP is becoming such a mainstream pop band. A lot of rock/alternative/metal bands that I know don't do tons and tons of collaborations and remixes and all that stupid shit. A lot of pop stars and rappers do a lot of collaborations and remixes, and that is what LP is becoming sadly. At least Chester is saved because of STP, as for the rest of the band, I don't even know anymore. LP always had a ''unique'' side of electronic music, but this dubstep and EDM stuff is not unique, it's a trend. It's funny how LP claims to hate being called nu-metal and that they hate nu-metal music, yet Dubstep and EDM are as much of a trend as nu-metal ever was. I guess LP is just a trendy band nowadays.

    LP has been doing collaborations since day one. Look at Reanimation.

    Also, rock/alt/metal bands don't do tons of collaborations and remixes? What?

    NIN has put out 3 remix albums and 1 remix EP.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nine_Inch_Nails_discography#Remix_albums

    Glitch Mob has done remixes for Coheed and Cambria, TV on the Radio, and the White Stripes.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glitch_mob#Remixes

    Bush put out a remix album in 199-fuckin-7.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deconstructed_(Bush_album)

    Industrial metal band Ministry put out a remix album in 2007.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio_Grande_Dub

    Razia's Shadow is an album by prog rock Forgive Durden that features 13 guest singers.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Razia's_Shadow:_A_Musical

    Have you listened to Slash's solo album? You know, the guy who was the guitarist for Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver? So many collaborations, I guess he's just being trendy.

    Stop talking out of your ass, ZachLP before I post another 10 examples of why you're wrong.

    EDIT:

    Oh hey, and there's Radiohead too! Guess they're all about stupid shit too amirite
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TKOL_RMX_1234567

    And then there's Bloc Party! Guess instead of Indie rock they should be considered indie trendy.

    I've said it in another thread, and I will say it in this one too. If you think for one minute that Linkin Park were anything other than a pop band, your whole perception of the band has been one huge misconception.

    LOL you can post 1000 more reasons why I am wrong. It doesn't change anything, or prove me wrong. I said LP is a pop band, and they are. I also stated that I didn't like all the dubstep/EDM collaborations, which is an opinion, not a fact. An opinion technically can't really be 'wrong'. I also don't listen to any of those bands, so I don't really care about who did remixes for them, or who they've collaborated with. I also don't have an issue with any past LP collaborations, I liked them all. LP has never really collaborated with a dubstep/EDM artist before, so this is why I said I disliked it, because it's new and I'm not a fan. I will admit that I think the tons of LP remixes that came out for ATS and LT songs did get a bit annoying, but it didn't change anything for me honestly. Neither will these dubstep/EDM collaborations, unless LP features these artists or makes this kind of music on their main studio album. Keep that shit off the album and I won't really care much. I will say this one more time. LP has a unique style of electronic music in their songs, that I absolutely love. But I don't think dubstep/EDM music is very unique, and I think it's just trendy music, much like the ever-so-hated nu-metal music was back in the day. Also, as far as I'm concerned, this conversation is over.

    Basically. I'm extremely disappointed. LP has been my favorite band since I was 10 years old and I've spent so much money on LP that it's sickening. I've traveled all over to see LP play live. LP is a big part of my life, so of coarse I am going to take them seriously. I have never been upset about a LP release honestly, but this I am upset about. I honestly loathe Dubstep/EDM music and it seems that LP is going to be going down this road fully. It sucks when your favorite band for most of your life lets you down. I don't like any other artist or band as much as LP, it's going to suck. At least Chester is with STP. Maybe STP will just become my favorite band if LP really does make albums in Dubstep/EDM music from now on. I will admit, it is a bit weird that a six piece band that all play instruments are pushed in the back for computer noises and programmed instruments. I can't think of many bands in LP's style that do that fully. I guess they are trying to piss off their fan base again.

    I'm okay with these recently-announced collaborations for the time being but if it turns out that Linkin Park are doing some "The Path Of Totality" shit (as opposed to just making these tracks for, say, the next LP Underground CD), then, I'll have a problem with it all.

    I'm kind of confused. When did Chester and Mike doing a song with an artist turn into "OMG THEY'VE BECOME SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA UNACCEPTABLE"?

    I respectfully disagree. Popular music is one thing, pop music is another.

    Linkin Park have always been mainstream. They're as popular as today's pop stars. But they're not a pop band.

    I'm not saying this because I don't want to be seen as listening to pop music – I like some pop, however I don't see Linkin Park as a pop band, and hence this post. Call me nitpicky if you want.

    Maybe they're doing it because they like it. Thought of that? Maybe it's new for them. Maybe their minds aren't as closed as yours. Maybe they don't care about people like you, who dismiss them for doing things that are exciting and new for them.

    In other words, everything you said is downright stupid. Sincere apologies.
