Damn, I’m not very blown away by the new album…the songs that rock (4 songs!!!) do sound good and are a good follow up, but Meteora/Re-anime/Hybrid Theory/Live in Texas even the disc with Jay-Z are still way above this new one, atleast as far as what I like about Linkin Park with all the sampling, scratching, and pure rage.
I don’t get it what the hell happened, did they get married, have some kids, or something that made them go soft? What happened to the depressed, fuck you, pissed off rage? All these slow songs…wow…I think somewhere they lost their edge. I’m a huge LP fan, but this new cd just doesn’t do it for me.
The 4 songs that rock are good but out of 11 songs and 1 that is just an intro…hmmm I’m starting to think Mike should not have done Ft Minor and concentrated more on getting this album up to speed. Although Ft Minor is a good disc, besides where is all the crazy sampling/scratching from Han?
I’m glad I bought the $10 CD and not the MVI/CD for $17!!! Would I go to see LP on tour with this album…not likely, I’ve seen both other albums but I’m not very impressed with 4 out of 11 songs being fast and having a rock edge.
I don’t know, I’m just not impressed with just 4 rock songs out of 11. I’ve been anticipating this album for a while now and feel sort of let down/disappointed especially when the website played 3 of 4 rock songs.
I think if Meteora heard Minutes to Midnight, it’d kick its ass in the blink of an eye, then Hybrid Theory would torch whatevers left, then Re-Anime would swoop in and dust off the ashes!!!
