Link is already dead
Digging: Rancid - ...And Out Come the Wolves
At least it doesn't come with another Transformers movie.
You can't tell me those explosions aren't amazing
Linkin Park? I guess we can say in this case that it's "Linkthatdoesn'tworkin Park".
OMG SO FUNNY
Breakingthefragile worst joke ever... of all time
There's like ten other links on youtube. Just type "linkin park" then click "upload date."
They're basically just an electronic hip-hop / rock band with screaming to me now. I really liked their last album, but these new songs are just not special at all.
Digging: Ben Howard - I Forget Where We Were
lol so many of the youtube links are for different songs
this reminds me of when "what i've done" leaked and thousands of people downloaded "Refugee" by Tribal Ink because they uploaded mp3's saying they were linkin park
it actually was awesome all around
Absolutely terrible. I couldn't even finish listening. Once it became clear that Chester was doing the "sing a few words quietly over and over and then SCREAM the same words over and over" bit for the bridge, I had to close the page.
Wow, this really is bad, and I actually kind of like Linkin Park.
Eww, this is the worst LP has ever sounded and that really says something, I thought it was Nickelback at first lol.
Digging: Redwood Hill - Collider
I thought it was Nickelback at first lol.Yeah, bro. Nickelback is all about that electronics heavy hip-hop.
that was pretty bad
They've been listening to too much BrokeNcyde..
Is like a weird hybrid between blackout ,bleed it out and some of the songs that appear in the path of totality.
Wuz this sleigh bells?
They have been listening a lot of really bad dubstep
IT STARTS WITH ONE
sweet, i'll take a listen
CRAWLING IN MY SKIN THESE WOUNDS THEY WILL NOT HEAL
so if this album ends up being really bad i already know what the summary is going to be:
"This is the na-na-na nail in the coffin"
Digging: Damien Rice - My Favourite Faded Fantasy
Perfect. That's why you're staff.
Digging: Kenn Nardi - Dancing With the Past
Damn. This doesn't link to anything at all.
I'm like DaveyBoy nextgen
try this one
Ugh. This is Linkin Park?
Wow. This is modern mainstream shit. I know that sounds stupid since linkin park were always mainstream, but you guys know what I mean right?
Not even gonna DL this album.
That was not very good at all. :-(
Digging: Sleepytime Gorilla Museum - In Glorious Times
they need to drop this electro shit. I don't hate electronic music but they just can't pull it off.
This happening was kind of predictable to be honest. Their staple was always agressive rap-rock. They went through that stage every artist does when he/she/they feel as though they have a higher artistic calling than they actually do (in this case, LP went right for the U2 jugular), and when that inevitably fails they try to return to their roots, but either the style is outdated or they lost their touch.
But I'll still be awaiting the album...hopefully it isn't too terrible.
sounds like thousand suns with less creative lyrics/hooks. for what it's worth, i thought thousand suns was awesome.
The two singles were not very good, but is not at the same level of nickelback.I hope the rest of the album will be better but my expectations are not the highest, the problem is that they are trying to adapt their HT-Meteora sound to newer trends
got kinda better at the end, but still. so poor
I actually really liked this song. I got a free download from something that I shared on Facebook forever ago.
I actually mildly enjoyed Mike's parts. But Chester's are miserable. At least it was short?
The end was a fun trip back to the past. The rest? Miserable.
Better than i thought it would be...
But still bad.
"They're basically just an electronic hip-hop / rock band with screaming to me now."
-Uh, were they ever anything besides this?
Haven't really liked anything since Meteora.
Uh, were they ever anything besides this?
The song is bad. My hopes for this album are slowly dying.
way better than literally anything else they have released since minutes to midnight which was a tad above mediocre, his singing gets weird though
Digging: Attila - Guilty Pleasure
It could be a lot worse
i liked it until he started singing
the chorus isnt bad, and the rapping/singing parts were almost enjoyable. they should really try combining the electonic stuff with the old nu metal attitude- now that theyve 'proved' they are capable of making different music
I really hate these bastards.
At the end this thing doesn't even matter,I mean, we have Hybrid Theory and Meteora
This is the first time I can say that the Shinoda part of the song is the bad part. Ending was cool, but overall, very disappointing.
"Is like a weird hybrid between blackout ,bleed it out and some of the songs that appear in the path of totality. "
...I like your hybrid theory. :]
ATS and MTM are a 2,5 . Those albums have 4 or 5 quality songs ,the remaining tracks of those 2 albums like In Between and Robot Boy were really bad
KURRRRRAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWLLLLLLLIIIIIIIINNNNNGGG IIIIINNNN MYYY SKIIIIIINNNNNN
Fuck this is so bad. This is the one band I get genuinely angry with when I hear them make a bad song.
Digging: The Birthday Massacre - Superstition
I can't wait for the remix with Nicki Minaj.
You are waiting for the impossible
I didn't think it was all that bad, sounded a tad like AWOLNATION, which considering on your taste could be a good or bad thing
That is one ugly song.
NEEDS MORE GUITARS
I like that Mike is rapping more though, but fuck the electro beat
Everyone is so Negative!
^ lol, welcome to sputnik.
I'd rather eat my own feces than listen to this
Everyone is so Negative!
Men, don't complain about that, Is expected that mainstream acts like Linkin Park that have realesed works below the expectations get as response a lot of hate (specially in music websites like Sputnik) ,if you enjoy this . that's fine, you have your personal taste and is respectable and you don't have to care about the opinion of the others,take this as an advice.
an all around awful song
No surprises here
both songs so far are much better than the any of the songs from the last album, but still nowhere near as good as anything from HT or Meteora, in my opinion.
Digging: Unearth - Watchers of Rule
Finally actually listened all the way through. Seems like Linkin Park is, as usual, trying to appease the mainstream genre of the year. Used to like this band years ago. Looking at them now, I almost feel embarrassed.
I love early LP and honestly didn't mind their newer stuff (a thousand suns was better than minutes to midnight) but this was pretty damn underwhelming.
Screw it, this band sucks. They need to go away.
chester sounds like a 12 year old wtf his pitch seems really high
A new Linkin Park album is like a new Transformers movie. Unorginal and terrible but it keeps selling well so they will most likely make another one.
They're doing their own thing with it. Whatever.
A Thousand Suns was terrible, if Living Things is worse, then time might be up for this band
Damn. That is just God awful.
I forgot what it sounded like already, replacing this crap with crawling
WHAT I'VE DONE!?
the guitar tone is HOOOORRRIBLEEEEE.
LP were dead a long time ago, the final nail was planted long before this piece of shit hit earth.
Sounds like Hollywood Undead got raped by Brokencyde
Holy fuck, that was awful
Digging: Warren of Ohms - The Wolf and The Fox
Digging: Pianos Become the Teeth - Keep You
I liked it
Digging: From Indian Lakes - Able Bodies
Linkin Park? I was all about Hybrid Theory back in 8th grade.
Can't view this now 'cause of work filters, but I'll try to have a listen afterward. Gotta get on the suck train.
Digging: Lost Ubikyst in Apeiron - Abstruse Imbeciles Nailed On Slavery
Hmm. Might take a while to grow on me but A Thousand Suns was worth the few listens.
I could've sworn I read something about LP going back to their old sound this album for the old fans...I guess they were just lies
Also this sux ass.
a thousand suns was actually pretty good. this is awful sounding
Oh my god this is even worse than the last song. I don't even know how that's possible. Band is dead.
Sounds like fucking Hollywood Undead or something.
Way better than the first single they released - the fuck-me-this-is-so-awful "Burn It Down" - but altogether not the most impressive thing in the world. The remaining ten songs have got to be flat out amazing if the album wants to get more than 2.5/5 from me.
Digging: Portishead - Dummy
That's generous. Their electronic elements are soooooooo fucking lame. Lyrics are pretty awful as well.
Not listening. Didn't listen to the last one, and probably won't listen to anymore. Band has been bad for so long that I would feel like I would be wasting my time. Narrow minded but seriously fuck this band.
Never really been into these guys, only liked a select few songs here and there.
Hybrid Theory was the first CD I bought. It's sad to see how shitty they have gotten over the years.
The times are a-changin'....Linkin Park just hasn't figured it out yet.
biggest sellout band i've ever seen...after hybrid theory, their originality plummeted to a record breaking shit
terrible, oh my gosh. even the ending was so much like "we have to force it!!!1"..
song is poop
Digging: Godflesh - A World Lit Only by Fire
pong is soup
Music: They are doing it wrong
so much ugh
It's so disappointing
Well that was awful
Well I lasted 38 seconds
I'm going to pretend what I heard was something along the lines of
THE SUN GOES DOWN
I FEEL THE LIGHT BETRAY ME
Attention Justin Bieber, Linkin Park is back!!!
I gotta say, in the beginning when Mike is about to say "Imma be that nail in your coffin" and the N is on that shuddering repeat, I seriously thought he was gonna say "Imma be that nigga".
I'm sorry, but you guys are a bunch of negative nancy's.
I'm the first person to insult the terrible direction they've gone (though a Thousand Suns was ok), but this wasn't THAT bad. Just pretty uninspired.

Eep...little bit of an off day for LP on this one. Still clinging to "Burn It Down", I thought that was a great lead single and it offers me hope that they might pull it off despite this.
Digging: Skyharbor - Guiding Lights
"Lies Greed Misery" would be a great track if the chorus didn't ruin it.
Also, for the record: "Misery" is pronounced "MIS-er-ee", not "mis-er-AY". Someone pass this on to Linkin Park, please. Thanks.
Dear God this is so terrible....
Digging: Old Man Gloom - The Ape of God I
Love it how some of you just say the old LP was amazing and this sucks.
Doesn't make sense. If this song was in the old records, most of you would have called it a classic. It has everything that was there in the old records. Mike rapping, catchy chorus and scream portion for chester. Oh yea, the guitars come in a little late. So what?
Geez man, Give the band a break. Nobody's listening on Meteora was more POP than this song. Yet you guys consider all songs of that era to be classics.
You guys are just categorizing every song they do now as POP, electronic and lame after one album.
Nice paragraph bro. Also, no one considers the old songs classic, they just hold nostalgia.
Its funny actually, in the Meteora review on this very site, the reviewer argued that the band had not explored and experimented and stuck with the same HT sound making it a HT part 2. I won't be surprised if that same person is criticizing the band right now. :-P
