I enjoyed listening to the first Linkin Park album when a drummer friend bought it into the shop I worked in. The beats and mish mash of explosive riffs, fairly decent raps and soaring choruses impressed me immensely. A little older and wiser the second had it's moments for me but was drifting and slowly the two held less interest for me beyond a few songs. Minutes to Midnight came along and while admirable for its efforts in trying to forge the next steps in their sound there were chunks that left me wanting. My friend and I bought tickets for November at the O2 largely out of 'never got around to this, been ten years, perhaps we should'. Imagine my surprise when I first heard the Catalyst. A driving beat, soaring synth notes, lyrics that grab me in a very grown up way, a better marriage of Mike and Chester's (and apparently the rest of the band's) vocal sounds than I'd ever heard from them. Building and building in a fashion of emotional highs and lows I wouldn't have ever thought possible. Best I could describe my first encounter with this was - I want to listen to this again. Once the actual album arrived I was in awe. Everyone working at the top of their game. From the gentle keyboard to the varied beats, the waves of delicate to vicious guitar and the whole band vocals dipping in and out from beginning to end. I've now heard this album probably 20 times and I'm still not tired, if anything it gets better each time. Maybe it is too different (I am intrigued to see how some of it's going to fit in with the older tracks live) but different is good. All the Oppenheimer/Dr King stuff, it lends a meaning and weight to a lot of it. It's like they're striving for something bigger and better even as they finally release it.Read more ›

This album suprised me at first as it's very different from the last. It's less melodic, less commercial but more importantly; it's a lot better.
I loved Minutes to Midnight; it worked on so many levels. A Thousand Suns works on a lot of different ones but still has that incredibly unique sound the band has.
If I had to sum up how this album sounds, I would say there are a lot of similarities to the Resident Evil films' soundtracks. There's a very mechanical, industrial vibe to many of the songs; "When They Come for Me" and "Waiting for the End to Come" are two of the bands' best written songs in my opinion.
Like the last album, there are some stunning tracks on display; The messenger has a simple guitar melody behind some of the most raw vocals I've heard from this band. It works and is a great way to end the album.
The only gripe I have is that the album didn't really need the interludes and for me they actually distract from the great songs on the album.
This is evolution for the band; It's a great progression of their musicality and I can't wait to see where they take it next.

After hearing The Catalyst I was hugely disappointed and was fearing the worst with their new album. However, it's not too bad, but definitely not great!

The album has 15 tracks, but only 9 are proper songs and the rest are just fillers - not good!

In my opinion there are just 3 excellent songs, 3 decent songs and 3 poor songs.

Disappointing!

***UPDATE***

I have now had time to listen to the songs a few times and openly admit I was wrong with my initial review above. Although I'm still not happy with just 9 songs - what you do get are actually very good songs (once you have listened to them a few times), one of which has to be one of their best tracks ever (I'll let you figure it out when you listen to the album). I actually really like 'The Catalyst' now too!

I believe all the negative reviews here on Amazon are probably from people (like myself) who reviewed it after just one listen. After a few listens I'm sure they too will add one more star to their initial review.

Not Linkin Park's best album, but not the worst either!

This album was described as experimental on one review i read from the band, it is not your usual commercial album, but, after several listens i am totally hooked, i was unsure at first but i now "get it", i understand what they have done and am in love with what i now consider to be one of the bands finest outputs to date, the band continues to mature and this is reflected in this albums work, finely crafted tracks from top to bottom, lyrically and musically.
All in all one fine album.

Linkin park has always been and probably will always be one of my favorite bands ever. I couldnt wait for the release of this album, but when i got it i was slightly dissapointed.. why you ask? well, mainly because i was expecting something similar to "meteora" or "minutes to midnight". Therefore i only listened to a couple of songs half way through and turned it off. The next day i decided to give the album another chance, listened to it the whole way through once.. twice.. three times.. and finally realised that it was actually amazing! Yes, LP have changed in style alot over the past years, BUT IN A GOOD WAY! if you do buy this album, take time to listen to it properly. i assure you, YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED!

Mike sings in "when they come for me": " everybody wants the next thing to be just like the first"

with music, and the bands that you love change is inevitable. if bands dont change their style slightly once in a while, the music they produce will go stale.

9/10 excellent album, mike and chester's singing ties together perfectly.
