Mike Shinoda: 'It'll be a good mix of old and new'

Kerrang! scans we so badly were waiting for have finally surfaced online, thanks to the LPA. Mike talked about what the album could be like, stating 'This time we're not being afraid of sounding like us and it will be a good mix of old and new'. Well, that's a really interesting statement, what elements from which era would you like to be dominant in this 'mix', the 'multi-layered' sound on A Thousand Suns, the rawer waves on Minutes to Midnight or the guitar edged Hybrid Theory/Meteora?
