A Thousand Suns
So, not to long ago the renowned band Linkin Park released their fourth studio record "A Thousand Suns", and as with their third release "Minutes to Midnight", they depart once again from their signature Nu-Metal sound, disappointing fans older fans but still, the album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 241,000 copies.
I personally think that they should have stuck with their original sound, they were pioneers in the Nu-Metal genre and it would have been really interesting to see where it would have led them, had they continued writing in that style. Of course though, they are not in the same place in life as they were ten years ago, and had they continued it might've come out forced and uninspired.
Dear readers, what do you think about Linkin Park's progression, did you ever like them at all, does their new sound appeal to you?
