I love linkin park, i have all their work, but I've listened to it numerous times and maybe its just a step too far for me in the music evolution. I like some of the songs, but I enjoy their old stuff much more. The album by Dead By Sunrise I found very pleasing.
I agree with a few things here especially that fact that you MUST listen to this album a few times and understand that Linkin Park are moving on. At first i really turned my nose up at it but i realised i was just being ignorant. This is a well accomplished album. Its a fantastic, well constructed, cubastial album of genius. I have listened to it so many times and almost took up an interest in politics. ALMOST
I have been a Linkin park fan from the very start I even joined the fan club at one stage. This album I believe is below poor standard for Linkin park. They have released some fantastic albums but they have changed. half the songs on this album are very short or they are not really songs.
There are 2 good songs in my eyes.
Worth a try but it is not my cup of tea
Sure this album is nothing like any of their other 'classic' albums such as Hybrid Theory and Meteora, but it's a highly welcome change in my eyes.
The voice samples from political figures are perfectly woven into their new sound and works phenomonally. I urge anyone who is a fan of LPs old stuff (not so much minutes to midnight, although there are a few sounds as mellow as that record) to buy this album!
