Re: Official Rock Discussion Thread
Chester stated that when he was writing the material for his side project, it didn't fit with any of the tracks for Minutes To Midnight. Plus, this album tells the story of dark and light (his problems and then overcoming them and meeting his second wife, etc) and thus, didn't really fit with the whole theme of Minutes To Midnight. To me, this song doesn't feel like a typical Linkin Park song whatsoever. Even from the previews of Fire and Let Down, they sound totally different from the usual LP song.
Plus, Linkin Park's new album is out in early 2010 but in regards to how that will sound; I have no idea. All I know is it may be a concept album and will be darker and has a more rock/electronic/pop sound to it. Also, Rick Rubin is producing their 4th album.
