Linkin Park-Minutes To Midnight

Minutes to Midnight is very different than Meteora and Hybrid Theory. To me, Minutes to Midnight is mainly a disappointment. Yes, the band has progressed and is exploring a new field of their genre, which I admire. But it's not Linkin Park sound anymore. This album has caused Linkin Park to lose some fans, as well as gain some new fans.
The band was the first to have this unique sound, with sort of a remixed nu metal sound, and it sounded really good and was the main reason for me getting into them. But since the new album, they got rid of their old equipment and started using new technology. It doesn't sound as good and as complex anymore. I miss their old sound very much.
Another thing that bothers me is that they changed the lineup, and the new members are part of the reason for their dramatic change in style.
It's just not Linkin Park anymore.
