Linkin Park - Minutes to Midnight

Album was just released today on iTunes.

Downloaded it and listening to it right now.

Pretty good so far.

I liked Linkin park when they first came out, but then following that, it was like I was listening to the same album as last. They have a great sound and all, but they sound the exact same on every song it seems like. Ill have to check this one out and see if theres a difference.

I agree with their other two albums (although really good in my opinion) sounding very similar.

This album is a big change of direction for them. You might like it, you might hate it.

People's taste in music never ceases to amaze me. Of course if all you ever listen to are the airwaves, then I guess you're kinda forced to like the shit that's crammed down your throats 50 times a day.

Never liked them. The new title just pisses me off. "Minutes To Midnight?" Sounds like they got the title idea from Iron Maiden's "2 Minutes To Midnight?" Not very original.

there was some show on the edge the other night where they were playing tracks off the new album and talking with the band. I liked what i heard, mostly because it was different from hybrid theory and meteora. But there are going to be people who like and people that hate it, but its going to go platinum and they are going to sell out arenas/stadiums for a tour.

My favorites so far are Leave Out All the Rest, Shadow of the Day, What I've Done & No More Sorrow.

I have been listening to Linkin Park since they first came out but some of my favorite bands are U2, Coldplay, Muse, AFI, Bush, Metallica (older stuff), Sting, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Weezer, GreenDay, etc....

Haha.

That's what makes us all so different and unique huh?

I am sure most of you think those bands are lame, or whatever, I don't care.

I will listen to just about anything except Gangsta rap.

and they got it from a theory done in the 1940's and 50's on how close the world was to nuclear holocaust.

Mach1Nut, I like your taste in music. Except U2.

And about the new Linkin Park CD, totally different than before. I was a little disappointed at first (i was hoping for something a little harder) but now I love it. Leave Out All The Rest = Greatness.

It is almost the same exact chord progressions throughout the whole song. The break down at the end, the strings, the guitar solo, everything.....

I am sure it is hard sometimes to come up with something original. I used to be in a band and it always seemed that I would come up with a bass line that resembled whatever music I had been listening to that day. I wonder if they had just listened to the worst band ever before they wrote this song?

This album is pretty damned empty. There's absolutely no substance to it. The lyrics and music are totally uninspired. Boring.

This album is one of the worst albums I have ever heard. I know I am a little late on replying, but I haven't had much time to download music lately. Thank God I didn't buy this shit. I think I would give it a .5 on a scale of 1-10.

This has to seriously be one of the worst albums I have ever heard.
