1) Possible, but they may only be nominated in the Alternative Category, or someone may die with an album in the can, or someone with a long buried career may have a mediocre and overhyped comeback, or U2 may release an overblown watered down pop album, or they may finally put the last nail in their coffin and actually give 'the big one' to someone like Fergie or Stefani or Timberlake.

2) Maybe give them a nudge in that direction, certainly a short term boost, perhaps double or triple the fanbase, but overall their albums, I think, will never hit that ridiculous mass level of sales/acceptance.

Even though it leaked I think I'm buying the actual thing. I like it that much.
I think you mentioned this a while back (another thread maybe?),

anyways... I "got" it, and well... Wow....

From start to finish, it's solid, great pace, good production... and the songs are just plain good. Not often does an album strike me on a first listen like this one has. But I love it when it does... maybe once or twice a year...

This album is blowing me away... Why couldn't they be opening for Arcade fire in Montreal and Toronto?? damn!

Actually Linkin Park changed their sound to more normal rock, dropped the rapcore and there isin't as much electronic influence...I kind of like it, as much as their previous singles were catchy in a radio pop kind of way it got so repetitive, and while I still doubt much depth in their lyrics, it's a step in a new direction, check out their single.
