Rocksound made Chester Icon of the Year. :love:

Violent Delights 12-02-2017 03:33 PM

A no-brainer if ever there was one. :nod: Make Chester Proud. :D

It's just sad that the circumstances had to happen for him to get it. I don't think he would've been chosen otherwise. :look:

I know what you mean, but it's always the way it goes. :nod:

i am glad he made the cover.

It’s nice to see him get the recognition even though the circumstances under which it happened are terrible. And I’m personally a bit meh about outlets that have never written positively about LP suddenly writing complimentary thinkpieces about them (not that Rock Sound is one of those, as far as I know). But whatever.

Speaking of thinkpieces, here is a bit old (from September) but nice retrospective on Meteora.

I can relate to this. :nod: :sigh:


I realized that Chester was saying everything that I wanted to say, but just couldn’t articulate. I enjoyed the loud, brash instrumentation and Shinoda’s rap segments, but the honesty in these lyrics was a revelation. Even the softer tracks like “Easier to Run” were poetic and insightful, but still had a bitter edge that resonated. This was shattering my idea of what music could be. I never knew Chester, but it was like he spoke for all of us that were fed up, angry, and in despair.

:nod: listening to One More Light after what happened is such a different experience. :sigh:

It really is. It's such a shame that people were so quick to judge the change in sound and not pay attention to the lyrics. (And I'm guily of that as well.) But I know better now and I've really come to appreciate the album overall. :nod:

:nod: me too, it was definitely close to being on my list.
