Nothing at all like their earlier albums.,
This review is from: The Hunting Party (Audio CD)
There’s a lot of reviews on here claiming this album is like their earlier albums, it isn’t, not even close. How this can be compared to Meteora or Hybrid Theory is beyond me, and to see it achieving the same overall Amazon scores as those two albums is a travesty and does a massive injustice to their earlier work. In simple terms, other than a couple of songs, this is very poor. Why Chester Bennington felt the need to scream his way through half the album I don’t get and it detracts from what might otherwise have been decent songs.
Overall, I have a sinking feeling the magic that drove Linkin Park has gone and they’re now at the stage where they’re making music for the sake of making music. This could well be the last LP album I buy, and I’m pleased to have got this on special offer, because I’d have been devastated to have paid full price for it.
