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.

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.

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right for the U2 jugular), and when that inevitably fails they try to return to their roots, but either the style is outdated or they lost their touch.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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

"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.

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.

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
