So, the people of music, opinions.

A Thousand Suns by Linkin Park.

It is my favorite album of all time, which is kind of strange considering I mostly listen to bands like Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, King Crimson, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, etc.

I just love the story it conveys, the amount of detail in every song and the way it draws attention to different, important, parts of the compositions. I feel it is the magnum opus of a band that normally isn't known for their deep thought or composition, and they were punished for it. The album is hated by most 'fans' and critics alike for being different than their usual stuff.

So, yeah, that's my two cents.

Yes I did. I didn't like it as much. It had some decent tunes on it, but nothing special. Castle of Glass and Roads Untraveled were pretty good.

well, thousand suns is a pretty decent album, but you might be the only person on the internet that will define at as the best album of all time.
on /mu/ nobody would say that, because they are hipster faggots.

Hmm, alright.

I'm not defining it as the best album of all time, though. I'm defining it as my favorite.

The transmissions tie the album together. Half the songs on Tommy by The Who are also transmissions.

but transmission songs are unnecessary, a good album has songs that you can all listen to individually.

Well, this album is meant to be listened to in its entirety. It's a concept album, it conveys a story through its songs, so each song is part of the whole story, this includes transmissions.

I love the music. Every single transmission is made with attention to detail (except for maybe Empty Spaces) and adds to the overall feel of the album. Every transmission is still a piece of music, and one with exceptional depth most of the time.

Not to me. I love every song on the album. Especially Iridescent. They give me something that most albums these days never could, they convey a strong emotion. Whether it be loss, distraught, pain, acceptance or hope. Every single note adds to the immensity of every song and it amazes me still. Every time I listen to the album, even after having heard it over half a thousand times.
