New interview

Which old sound though? Beside maybe their first two records, every record has sound different from eachother. And because of that, flop or not, their next album will be different for sure.

new sound old sound they seem to have diminished buying fan base. I'm sure they have fans that love the old stuff but nothing else.

I am a fan of first three albums yhru and thru the rest are just cherry picked songs. and the new album for me I'm avoiding

For me their peak was their 4th album, A Thousand Suns is also my favorite album by them, Living Things and The Hunting Party are enjoyable, but have some dull moments. One More Light seems cute so far for what it is, but I fear for how it will age, since it sounds a bit too current.

I don't think this project will have much staying power, but I like all the songs I've heard so far.

I'm really looking forward to this as i've started to like the two singles so, so much.

I can even see this becoming my favorite album by them so far to be honest... :oops:

Heavy is OK. The rest so far is a definite low point of their career.

I agree that they're not the band we used to know anymore, but it's a solid material so far IMO. If Marron 5 still can release hits (love them, but their last 2 single = total dissaster), why LP can't? Hope album does ok on charts. Don't expect huge numbers, but I'll be fine if it sells(!) ~1mln WW

This is the biggest pile of crap I have heard in a while, I'm sorry :lol:

It's not even that it's a different style - bands are allowed to experiment - it's that it's a complete and utter failure to make anything worthwile in that style. The reviewer from the Times (of London) was perfectly on point when they said it sounded like something Justin Bieber might have put out before his balls dropped. Not even sure if the album belongs under Rock/Alternative. Probably should be Pure Pop.

Considering I've already heard 40% of the album, I'm not sure I need to play the rest.

I listened to the album earlier this afternoon and here's the thing: it's a mediocre pop album.
It feels to me somehow unispired after all to be honest.
Some tracks like "Talking to Myself" and "Halfway Right" are really great (and the singles/promotional tracks too!) but that's all.

All in all, this album is nothing special. Really.
To be honest, i'm a bit dissappointed.
