Yes, I am a Linkin Park fan. I have heard every song from them. But once in a while I do come across some rare song they produced I never heard before...
Yes, I do know what lyrics they sing. It isn't something my elders may be pleased with. Yet, I'm just so moved by their music, to be honest. Even though it is not the best of lyrics to listen to, yet many at times they sing the exact things I felt before. It feels really real, and lets you come face to face with the darkest parts of life, for a brief moment you just soak in the feelings, be it rage, sorrow, determination... I can really feel the pain and impact of those emotions through the songs they sing.
I just only found out about Chester's suicide, and well, I really don't have anything to say; I do not know him personally. I'm just sad, that I won't hear another new LP song with his voice in it, if there is even going to be one. He is the icon of the band; I really love his voice. Mike is amazing, and the drummer is insane, the guitarists are crazy good, and there are so many things about the band which I am not adept enough musically to appreciate, but it was Chester's voice that sang all those painful lyrics and made the emotional connection. May his friends and family be comforted in his passing...sigh
In their new album, I like "Talking to myself", "One More Light", "Sharp Edges" (Chester's fav), "Nobody can save me", "Good Goodbye", "Battle Symphony", ... actually I like all 10 songs...If you don't think so, and you are flexible about the music you listen to, just give it a try; listen to the whole album from the BEGINNING, because it's a story. Remember to use some good earphones (with good ones you'll be able to hear the bass very clearly, and that's where you (might) start enjoying it).
And after that to solve your feeling of emptiness, to help you face the void of the human soul, read a a few biblical proverbs or read the gospel story. and I have a youtube video, that I would like you to watch as well:
I waited more than a month for this to be uploaded, which means this is definitely something I believe you should watch.
Father God, please forgive us of our bitterness. Please help us to accept these flaws we live with everyday. Thank You for offering us a purpose-driven life. Thank you for your patience. Yes, I am very distracted; I feel very trapped; I feel very lost. Please have mercy, Lord.
