Am I the only one who thinks that the new album is too soft?

I don't like the new album, where is the old Linkin-Park-sound? Pushing, forceful and fat? The new cd is more for the ladies needing someone to cuddle. It's just .. you know .. doft! It's not that they're bad.. the ideas of their songs are pretty cool but the force is missing. It sounds just thin. Have you heard "What I've done"? I bet you did! After the intro I was expecting a pure wall of heavy sound and I was disappointed by the missing deep c guitar.. Man they have enough to guitars since Shinoda plays one too. But all I hear is some octave-play like someone has cut of the low strings. And that applies for the other songs too.. like kindergarten.. =(

I know how you feel...I said the exact same thing when I first listened to their new album. I was disappointed as well. I was expecting this great album yet nothing!! I have a feeling it is because of Chester's voice. He can't scream like he used to. I tend to listen to their old albums now more than their new album. They are not my favourite anymore :(

well, im a girl so i cant say i dont like the new cd, but i agree linkin park use to be alot harder and now they've softened somewhat. theres always a time period where the writers have a softer version of their music, give it time and they normally bounce back to the heavier stuff. Aleast thats my opinion!
