I just love the fact that Linkin Park have got the guts to try all these different sounds and hence not go 'stale'. I'm not one of those people who compare a new album to the last album, the second album or whatever. I believe every piece of work should be taken and enjoyed on it's own merit and it's own sound.In other words judge it for what it is and not what it's not. No it's not Meteora or Hybrid Theory or Thousand Suns, it's Linkin Park doing what they do best and exploring and experimenting and I love the fact they can still suprise me. I for one love every album they've ever done but for different reasons and different moods with each one. Let's face it if they all sounded the same we'd be moaning they playing on past glories and living in the past etc etc. Hope that doesn't sound like the ramblings of a madman but there you go, buy it and just imagine it's the first time you've ever heard them, I love it, hope you do to :)

As most other Linkin Park fans were, I was extremely disappointed with their last effort A Thousand Suns. There were so many tracks on there that just didn't work for me, a lot of it was made up of noises and different sounds. There was 1, maybe 2 decent songs at best. It just wasn't Linkin Park, and I think the band admitted that they took a risk with it. In my opinion they've realised their mistake and tried to rectify it here.

Let me just say that if you were put off by that album, don't let it prevent you getting this one. This is a HUGE improvement. The best two things about it are that some familiar features from the old albums have returned in a lot of the tracks here- Mike's rapping and the heavy baslines that made Hybrid Theory and Meteroa so iconic. The first 6 tracks almost sound like they could be from those two albums, the only difference being a slightly more elecctronic hint to them. Their single Burn It Down is not bad, but I wouldn't say it's the best on there. I'll Be Gone and Powerless have 'single' written all over them for the future. I love the rapping in Lost in the Echo and Burn it Down too.

Linkin Park will probably never return to the style of their original album, but this is pretty damn close. It's not perfect- some of the tail end of the album is a bit average. Overall though it really is an excellent album, much much better than a Thousand Suns which will hopefully just turn out to be a blip in their progression. If anyone thought Linkin Park had gone for good, well, they're back!

I've been a fan of Linkin Park since Hybrid Theory, but I'll keep this review short.

This is the first album of theirs I've enjoyed for quite a few years - it's different but I like it. The best tracks in my opinion are Burn It Down and Castle of Glass. It's an enjoyable listen, but doesn't hit the same mark as Meteora or Hybrid Theory. (If you're starting out with Linkin Park, listen to those two first!)

Normally I'd give it four stars, perhaps, and leave it there - I like it, so why not? As the title of my review gives away, this album is not exactly a long, profound musical experience. At only 37 minutes, I've come to expect more for my money. I'm not saying it should match some great prog albums which fill a CD at 75 minutes in length, but come on. 37 minutes - half a CD! - is just a bit cheeky.

In short, is this worth a listen? Yes. Is it worth a tenner? Absolutely not.

As other people have said- this is a great album. If I'm honest I think it's better than what I was expecting, after hearing 'Burn it down' and 'Lies Greed Misery' I thought they were good songs and was under the assumption that this would be a GOOD album, one that is enjoyable yet not the best I've ever heard. Then it arrived, and I heard the first few tracks, namely 'Lost in the echo' and was blown away. It had a heavyness to it that had been lacking on A Thousand Suns. Once I listened to the whole album I listened to it again, quite a few times. It is that good.

I guess the best way to describe Living Things is to imagine that it is an amalgamation of Linkin Park's previous album, everything they've done can be heard somewhere on each of these 12 songs. 'Lies Greed Misery' is a prime example: it has the electronic drive that can be found on 'Wretches and Kings' and 'When They Come For Me' off A Thousand Suns, yet its structure is similar to that of Hybrid Theory or Meteora: rapped lyrics on the verses by Mike, and then aggressive vocals from Chester on the chorus with Chester screaming on the outro. That too is another point, Chester's aggressive vocals are more present on Living Things yet there is an equal amount of him "properly" singing too. Guitars are also more present, 'Victimized' being a glaringly obvious example.

Also, while on A Thousand Suns I found the slower, more emotive songs to eventually be quite boring (I struggle now to listen to 'Iridescent') on Living Things the more emotive songs are some of my favourites on this album, in my opinion 'Powerless' is probably on of their best songs.
