Living Things brings new life to the band

Living Things is a combination of there 4 previous albums and this is quite apparent. This album does not have the political atmosphere that "A Thousand Suns" did but still retains the experimentation mainly in "SKIN TO BONE" and "UNTIL IT BREAKS". Mike Shinoda sings quite a lot on this album almost as much as lead singer Chester Bennington (and yes he screams on this album) and even Brad Delson the lead guitarist gets 1 verse of singing on "UNTIL IT BREAKS" which is very fresh. The album opens big with "LOST IN THE ECHO" and keeps up the high energy and faster paced songs until "ROADS UNTRAVELLED" which is where the slower (non screaming songs) come into play. "VICTIMIZED" is a very quick song with fast rap and hard screams (hardest song since "Given Up" on "Minutes To Midnight") but is definitely not there hardest song which reviews have stated. If you like the 'old' Linkin Park this is the album for you, it has experimentation, hard rapping, some brutal screams, beautiful singing an

Linkin Park was a start to a "nu meal" music. With break through debut, Hybrid Theory. The follow up with also successful, Meteora. There was an significant difference on Minutes to Midnight. Dropping their original "nu metal" taste. It wasn't a bad album, just wasn't expect a so dramatic change. A Thousand Suns was a huge let down. They were a complete sell out. With elements of pop and electronica. Finally, Living Things was a similar follow up, better then A Thousand Suns, but still really terrible (in my opinion). Overall, Linkin Park "sold out" for mainstream pop/electronica, abandoning their true royal fans, as they were once "nu metal". If you're new to Linkin Park, I do not recommend this album. Have a look elsewhere, on their earlier material.
Ignore the negative reviews

This is a good album. I've heard enough of people saying that they miss the "old" Linkin Park. They're still awesome they just wanted to take a new direction. The songs on this album are great. "Castle of Glass" especially is great to me. All the different songs are individual and have their own sound.
Nu-Metal is dead. Just ask Limp Bizkit

This is easily LPs best work since Meteora. The band draws upon a variety of styles and influences to create good rock music with LPs own unique twist. Highlights include the very powerful opener 'Lost in the Echo', the upbeat "f*** you" of 'Lies, Greed Misery', the folk influences and lyrical mastery of 'Castle of Glass', the semi-punk, semi-death metalesque vibe of 'Victimized', Mikes brilliant rapping in 'Until it Breaks' which also releases Brad as a singer(!), and the albums 2-part closer, the instrumental 'Tinfoil' flows seamlessly and perfectly into the closer 'Powerless', a track that screams epic superhero film. The album as a whole is a large improvement from the over-experimentation of A Thousand Suns, and is a solid contender for the next Grammy Awards!

This is not Hybrid Theory - so I don't know why haters want that album back. If you like Hybrid Theory - LISTEN TO HYBRID THEORY! This is a great album for music in general. Meanwhile Maroon 5 and Justin Bieber and other rubbish are being released - this kills anything being released these days. Great songs; Lost In The Echo, Lies Greed Misery, Castle Of Glass, Victimised, Until It Breaks, Powerless - These tracks could ALL be singles. Solid album.
