We were not making an album.

For months, we'd been destroying and rebuilding our band. The experiments that resulted filled the studio hard drive with diverse, abstract sounds. Amorphous echoes, cacophonous samples, and handmade staccato merged into wandering, elusive melody. Each track felt like a hallucination.

We didn't know if any of those ... Read more in Amazon's Linkin Park Store

Product Description


Minutes to Midnight stands to defend Linkin Park's status as the hardest-rockin' softies in mainstream music. Like its predecessors Hybrid Theory (2000) and Meteroa (2003), Minutes to Midnight flexes plenty of decibel-heavy muscle ("Given Up," "Bleed It Out," "No More Sorrow") and made-to-order, melodic radio fare ("Leave out All the Rest," "Shadow of the Day," "In Pieces"). But for all its volume, Linkin Park likes to paint its heart openly on its sleeve with suspicious sonic drama, as in the palpably saccharine "Valentine's Day." Fortunately, co-producer Rick Rubin brings all these elements to pinnacle effect with the surprise "Hands Held High." On past efforts, the combination of breezy keyboard, arpeggiated guitar, choral vocals, and a military snare-beat would yield another slab of smarm, here MC Mike Shinoda drops the two best verses of his career, blending vocal styles with singer Chester Bennington for a moving piece that's as welcome a repertorial addition as Linkin Park is ever likely to muster. --Jason Kirk

4.0 out of 5 stars Something Different for Sure 15 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
I have been a huge fan of LP from the start and as with their second album its hard to follow on from Hybrid Theory. Minutes to Midnight isn't as heavy as I would like but I am pleased that theres new 'styles'. Lets face it, they are still going to rock in concert with old tunes that we know & love. 'Given Up' rocks and 'What I've Done' is another great tune. After listening a few more times, some of the material becomes more likeable. I had wished there to be a couple more heavy, signature tunes as this would have made an album with more range of style and feel more 'complete'. Good to know their back though!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Different but still awesome 31 Dec 2007
By Rachel
Format:Audio CD
I must say first that this album contains a lot of different material from Linkin Park than meteora or any of their previous albums. Nethertheless the band has evolved and the music, although different styles, is still as catchy and appealing as it always has been.

The album contains a mixture of slower paced songs -'Shadow of the day', a couple of traditional LP songs - 'What I've Done', an instrumental - 'Wake Up', and a lyrical masterpiece that is 'Hands held high'.
'Bleed It Out' draws in a completely new audience also, but manages to have the power to stay in your head all day long.

Overall the album is brilliant, the songs at the end of the album are less memorable but the power and uniqueness of the album make up for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Diverse, different, but still Linkin Park 15 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album is certainly something different from LP. They seem to be moving away from the nu-metal sound that they're famous for and try something different. And this album is certainly that. It's extremely diverse and exciting, and thus should appeal to most people.

Of course, some fans may be disappointed by the new direction the band is taking, but they should listen to these tracks. The familiar sound of LP is still there, just with new ideas and instruments over the top of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars linkin park, what's happened.....? 7 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
Being a fan I got a chance to review the album, and It was instantly noticable that their are a little quieter than usual, more chart rock with a lot more vocal, but I've always thought that Chester (singer) has a good voice that he doesn't get the chance to really show it off (with all the shouting).

After a few listenings to the album I really think that it is great, the wife don't mind listening to linkin park anymore !!

so my verdict is......I Definitely see them going to number one with this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give it a chance 13 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
After reading the reviews below i was quite frankly shocked. Yes, LP have changed their style dramatically however this album contains some quality tracks such as What i've done, Valentine's Day, Leave Out All The Rest and The Little Things That Give You Away. There are other average tracks like In Between, Bleed it out and Given up but songs like Shadow of the day are disappointing for LP's standard.

I think they've did well in adapting in their new style of music. I feel in the next album that they will mix Nu-metal with their new style. I think with this album they'll acquire more fans because of the diverse range of songs and this is why i think this is why they've changed their style.

This album is totally different from Meteora and Hybrid Theorpy but it's still produces some quality tracks in its own way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Something different indeed 11 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
Being a massive Linkin Park fan myself, I was literally horrified when they announced that that Minutes to Midnight was the band's move to explore the world of classic rock and hip hop. It was no surprise, then, that when the album came out, you could quite distinctly see the difference to a Linkin Park of 4 years ago.

However, this album isn't quite what you'd expect. It is true that thay've tried to explore different genres and divulge from their nu-metal image, and they've done it quite tastefully though. It just doesn't sound like the Linkin Park that made songs like Papercut and Lying from You.

The album opens with an eerie instrumental which never really takes off...sort of an underlying them for the whole album in all honesty. The second song, Given Up, shows a lot of promise, but that's abuout it. Nothing special there at all for die-hard LP fans. Almsot all the resy of the songs sound like those off a Fort Minor album: clearly Shinoda has influenced this album a lot, and it's not so bad in places, but songs like Hands Held High and Valentine's Day really don't, unlike Hybrid Theory and Meteora scream Linkin Park (literally).

I was surprised by some songs on the album, namely In Between and No More Sorrow. No More Sorrow sounds like a normal Linkin Park song, again not quite teh quality of earlier albums, but a refreshing change from the dreary and slightly boring tone of the album as a whole. As for In Between, it's not normally my cup of tea. But Shinoda's Fort Minor were brilliant in their own way, and he's brought this touch of class back to band he made his name with.

One thing's for sure: they haven't become another faceless American boyband. The music isn't electricfying, and I'm sure a lot of people will be disappointed: I know I am. But they've had a stab at something different, and it's not half bad. All in all, not a bad album. Pity it was Linkin Park who made it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Right to change 15 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
So what if they changed. They have the right to change their style. First ppl complain that everything sounds the same and then they complain that it doesn't sound the same. It's called variety and LP has variety. For what it is, this album is good. They poored a lot into this album and should be shown some respect for it. If you're going to be a true LP fan, then understand what they did with this album...

The music production is there, sleek, effective, and the song writing is ok, though not as original or creative as on Meteora, and is a bit more whiny. Read more
