The best album, by any rock band, in a long time.,
This review is from: The Hunting Party (Audio CD)
If you liked hybrid theory and meteora, then I think you're going to like this album. Its definately a throw back to those times, there is a lot of hardcore metal in this album and it delivers a real punch. So much so I think it could easily become my favourite LP album of all time, and its certainly the best new album release I've heard in several years; from any band! Final Masquerade, Rebellion, Guilty all the same, and Until its gone are all absolute anthemic master peices which will live long in the memory and will be songs you'll always be hoping to be played live. But it doesnt stop there, virtually every track has its own power and angst, and as a collection of songs on a single album it really is the best to date. They could practically release every one of them as singles if they wanted.
What you've also got to consider if this has come after some rather moderate, tame affairs in recent years so to reach this standard again is truely special indeed, and for that they deserve an awful lot of credit. I'm really happy to say LP are back with a bang, and you should make the purchase of the album your number one priority - even if you had given up on LP in recent years. You wont be dissappointed.

This is a properly misleading review. It's neither a throwback to the first 2 albums or 'hardcore metal'! It's an alternative rock album. There may be elements of metal in a few of the songs but that's it. I'm also amused by your comment about them 'reaching this standard again' - the standard they were back on the first couple of records is a world away from this album. This may be the band back with rock music and a heavier sound again but that is the only similarity between this album and the first 2.
