4.0 out of 5 stars Next thing Vs First, 15 Sept. 2010
This review is from: A Thousand Suns (Audio CD)
Having received and listened to my copy of a thousand suns prior to reading any of the reviews.
i was not suprised,to then read the rather mixed comments it received.
However ignoring the fact that it was Linkin Park,and just listening to the tracks,i found i liked more than i disliked .
I really liked.... when they come for me...wretches and kings,and... the catalyst.
mainly due to the fact that they were not typical Linkin Park tracks.
I strongly believe music should be bought because you like it not simply because its the latest release of a particular band.
And there are definately more tracks on this cd that i like than dislike.
I think the reason for the mixed reviews are best summed up by the band in the lyrics of when they come for me.

"EVERYONE WANTS THE NEXT THING TO BE JUST LIKE THE FIRST."

well its not
So If you you only like old Linkin Park stuff then don`t buy this cd,save your money and play all your old Linkin Park cd`s.
But if you like diffrent types of music give it a listen.

I couldn't agree more with you. Everyone has been waiting for this album to see if its anyhting like the first few albums.

Its not but who cares if its not the same. You should sit back, listen to the music and listen to it for what it is, not a comparison. I know at first i thourght the same thing, its different. Which it is but i still really like it and expecially as they do all the work themselves.

Brilliant review.
Not biased, just fact.
The album is under heavy criticism of late about losing their sound, which is always disconcerting, but I think you might have convinced me it's worth a listen after all.
Many thanks.

I also agree with the comments above, too many bands live in the past and continue to put out music to please their fans, its a good job that the Beatles did'nt stick to that formula, otherwise Sgt Peppers or the White Album would never have been born.
LP could have taken the easy way out and continued taking peoples money, but there comes a time to experiment. I am a massive fan of the early albums and had my concerns when they released Minutes 2 Midnight, however, this is now in my top 20 albums of all time, its brilliant. If you had never heard of LP before and listened to this album I am pretty sure you would say the same. Yes after the Minutes album, I am a little disapointed by a Thousand Suns, but its still a very clever piece of work. Don't be surprised if LP do return to a sound that is more in line of what most people expect, but unless you experiment, your sound will be stuck in a timewarp and will never evolve.......Garry T
