5.0 out of 5 stars Linkin Park Reloaded, 25 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Living Things (Audio CD)
It's about time.

In the beginning there was Hybrid Theory and Meteora.
Then along came Minutes to Midnight, which I shall ever regard as the black sheep of the LP collection.
Three years later came A Thousand Suns, an album which I regard as art, and an amazing piece of work.
Now appears Living Things.

Combining the efforts of all four albums together, Living Things is Linkin Park "rebooted" for a new decade. This isn't another Hybrid Theory, nor is Minutes Part II or A Thousand Suns Part II. This is a unique body of work which some well-produced songs with matured-developed lyrics (remember, these guys are not young anymore!) For any die hard fans still crying and moaning about the evolution of this band, it's time to open your ears and remember the amazing musicianship this band has. Mike's rap, Chester's screams and melodic singing, Mr Hahn's electronic and turntable work, Brad and Phoenix's guitar and bass lines, Rob Bourdon's drumming mixed with the tribal sounds from ATS. It all comes together in an amazing package. If anyone hasn't listen to this yet, and wants to know what it sounds like; I'll say it kind of sounds like the bands Reanimation album from a decade ago, how everything was mixed, trashed and repackaged into a fun package of suns. But this goes deeper than that.

What are you waiting for!? Go buy this album now!

I too believe that A Thousand Suns is Art. I was totally blown away with that album.A Thousand Suns [Explicit]

I'm with you and Angela aswell. A Thousand Sun's is unbelievable. So experimental, unpredicatable and so many layers of sound. It makes me wonder what else Linkin Park have up their sleeve, if only they hadn't played it a little too 'safe' on Living Things. Maybe A Thousand Sun's creativity mixed with the presence of rapping and more prominent guitars of Hybrid Theory/Meteora?

This album does demonstrate the maturity hinted at in 'A Thousand Suns' which I warmed to after my initial discomfort. I also believe that that album was art. However I won't agree on 'Minutes to Midnight' because for once it sounded as though the band had fun with it. There was a fierce joy in the tracks which may not have translated well with fans but was a pleasant change from the angst so evident in previous works. But this is on yet another level and combines all of their immense talent in a solid whole. It shows LP are a force to be reckoned with
