Linkin Park Ranked

Timing seems appropriate with the release of Hybrid Theory 20th anniversary edition. I'm sure plenty of these opinions are gonna be skewered too, but who the heck cares anyway.
7Linkin Park
One More Light


This album has already been crapped on by just about everyone imaginable, but let's not kid ourselves: This album deserved all the hate it got back then and it hasn't aged particularly well either. The title track does hit pretty hard though, given the circumstances, and it's probably the only thing keeping OML from getting a 1.

1.5/5
Best Song: One More Light
6Linkin Park
Minutes to Midnight


This album seriously has no flow whatsoever, and it actually kind of ruins the experience. Has some solid singles, but that's ultimately all I come back to MtM for anyway.

2/5
Best Song: Given Up
5Linkin Park
A Thousand Suns


The album where Linkin Park clearly just decided to throw EVERYTHING at the wall to see what sticks. Way too much filler, and it's inconsistent as hell, but there are some good tracks to be found.

2.5/5
Best Song: Waiting For the End (kind of biased; saw Linkin Park live in 2013 and they absolutely KILLED this song)
4Linkin Park
Living Things


Compared to the two albums that came before this one, Living Things really felt like a breath of fresh air at the time. It doesn't really compare with some of their greatest albums, but it's a solid one nonetheless.

3/5
Best Song: In My Remains
3Linkin Park
The Hunting Party


Oh man, Linkin Park's future could have been amazing if they had just fine tuned THP's sound for the future instead of just resorting to generic radio pop. But alas, it wasn't meant to be. Album rules though.

3.5/5
Best Song: War
2Linkin Park
Meteora


It was probably obvious what would make up the top two. Meteora's great, but following up a classic like Hybrid Theory is no easy task, no matter who's doing it. In a way, this sort of feels like diet Hybrid Theory. Really solid, but not exactly what I'd call a classic.

4/5
Best Song: Numb
1Linkin Park
Hybrid Theory


I know, I know. Nostalgia is probably clouding my perception of this album, but I don't really care if it is. This is one of the most important albums to ever shape my current music taste, and I haven't lost any enjoyment in hearing this record even when it's for the 20th or 30th time.

5/5
Best Song: With You
