Sam's Town has about 3 palatable songs on it. Maybe. But it's still better than pretty much anything Linkin Park has ever done. EVER.
well if you say so...

This is without doubt the best song here so far. Just noticed it's been going for 7:45 and it hasn't felt that long.

That's the ticket! A song you may even like? On my list? One that's neither Porcupine Tree or U2?

Unheard of!

That was my first encounter with that sort of abbreviation/text speak/what-have-you. I didn't have the Internet at that point, you see. I was appalled when I came online and noticed some people typing like that.

now HERE'S a confession: when i first heard their album was called sam's town, i immediately thought of the casino (there's one here as well, same company obvs). it wasn't until a while later that i found out/realised that, hello, they named the album after the casino in vegas

You don't like Uncle Jonny? That's actually my favourite track on the album.
