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

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous 11 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
Being a fan of Linkin Park since they burst onto the scene in 2000 with the impressive "Hybrid Theory", and then refining their art (and I believe, improving it) with "Meteora" in 2003, I purchased Minutes To Midnight with high hopes for more of the same.

More of the same is not what you get. What you get is an album that has to be likened to Green Day's "American Idiot", and My Chemical Romance's "Black Parade". It is possibly not quite the Rock Opera that those two albums are, but it is the defining work of Linkin Park's career so far, just as those two albums have proved to be for their respective artists.

"Hybrid Theory" was born out of the Nu-Metal movement of the late 1990's and early 2000's, and was one of the very finest examples of the genre - It was heavily mixed and produced (some would say overly so), had memorable tracks and was filled with the youthful anger that the movement was associated with. "Meteora" moved away from this sound slightly, encompassing more challenging areas of music whilst still keeping the Nu-Metal psyche at heart with plenty of tracks displaying anger and angst in large measures. "Meteora" displayed a higher level of sophistication in terms of production and variation of musical sound, making it a creditable work, and not falling into the trap of many other contemporaries who attempted to continue with exactly the same sound of the short lived Nu-Metal movement.

"Minutes To Midnight" does still hold true to the bands Nu-Metal roots, but displays a desire to experiment with new sounds and genres. The biggest of these is probably the lower emphasis on the rock/rap style, and the higher prominence of melodic vocals on some of the albums marquee tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Total change for Linkin Park 27 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
As a big fan of Linkin Park, I brought this CD even after reading the bad reviews, I'm very glad I did, it's being played non stop in the car. I have to say it's a far cry from the boys other cd's but it just goes to how they turn their hands to slower more mellow stuff. people do your self a favor, buy and listen to it and your like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give them a break 25 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album in its own right is amazing. All LP fans will appreciate that with no reflection on their past albums, the songs are unique and innovative. IN the note from the band they explain that they are experimenting with new sounds and instruments. They appreciate music not the trend of the most popular type of music.
Classing this album as emo, is not truly appreciating their talent.
Yes, this is different from Hybrid Theory especially, and meteora but it is still linkin park just with a different twist.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3rd Time Lucky 28 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
Well, to be perfectly honest, when I first got this album I was quite disappointed to say the least. I'd totally expected an album that was going to be pretty similar to the first 2, and because it didn't turn out to be as such, it was a total let-down...

However. I have now listened to the album all the way through on a few occasions, and the more I listen to it, the more I like it. I am really surprised with the way this album has grown on me, and I would definately recommend it anyone who likes Linkin Park.

I suppose my expectations of this release were somewhat lowered by the reviews that I had read before I got it and I guess this made me feel like I already knew I was gonna hate it! I'm glad I have persisted though, and this album will be on my most-played list from now on.

Alot of people have grumbled that there isn't enough electronica, not enough classic Mike raps, no Mr Hahn instrumentals and too many Chester ballads on this new album; but the way I see it is that these guys have still created a Masterpiece.

The boys have totally proved that they, as a band, have grown up and evolved - taking their music to new levels, and once you have taken the time to listen, it really is quite impressive. They started as a group with some really powerful nu-metal stuff and have moved to a more emotional, reflective type of style.

All in all, I would suggest that you give this album a try. It may take time, but it is definately worth it. The lyrics are amazing and there are some really catchy tunes: Given Up, Leave Out All The Rest and obviously What I've Done, to name but a few.

Give it some time and you really won't regret it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Is this Linkin Park? 24 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
Was listening to it and kind of forgot what band it was for a second, not like the usual enthralling tracks like papercut, in the end. Sounds more like a university band! thrown together through drunken promises!

Alice in Chains bass lines and vocals without the thunder backing it.

However there are some good tracks (wake Up, little things...) although they sound more like B sides to previous albums. Bed-wetting rock, I am just not skinny enough to listen to this.

Go and listen to Re-animation!

4.0 out of 5 stars Minutes to Midnight....a progression? 17 May 2007
By Jim
Format:Audio CD
After initially hearing the album i thought "oh dear"...but the album is definitely a grower. LP have changed their style once again and at first it appears very much a compliance with mainstream music when compared to Hybrid theory & Meteora. However the album still holds the edgy bass-lines with roaring vocals from Chester Bennington yet Mike Shinoda's raps are predominantly missing.

Taking the album independently...it must be considered a giant success musically. The vocals are mainly sung by Chester but Mike's influence on this album is dramatic. Influences from Fort Minor (Shinoda's other band) regarding producing the songs can be clearly heard, especially on "Hands Held High". Mike has also attempted to sing a few chorus lines in place of Chester, which is different but works surprisingly well.

The best song on the album is "What I've Done", and this also shows the general flow of the album. However songs such as "Bleed It Out" are very upbeat and catchy and will be immense when played live. This song is much more reminiscent of Hybrid as it includes an upbeat rap/verse from Mike.

Their are various tracks on the album that are slower and aren't similar to any previous songs as a whole. But an upbeat stance is still adopted by Chester when delivering hard & truthful lyrics at time.

Overall....a brilliant album but...it defiantly doesn't break the same barriers that the Hybrid Theory has, in my opinion. Minutes To Midnight shows a new, mature direction for LP and a clear progression from Meteora can be heard and appreciated. The era of the "End of Days" style of songs is over..but this can only be viewed as positive with such songs as "Leave Out All The Rest" and my personal favorite "Bleed It Out".
