LIVING THINGS Tracklist:
I haven’t heard the whole album, which I will, it’s still freakin amazing. Burn it down is awesome, since it has some electric things to it!! (It’s better than Cure For The Itch) GO LINKIN PARK Random Reviewer Oof
First of all, the misleading iTunes review believes that this album is a "return to [Linkin Park's] roots". I highly disagree with this sentiment. Rather, Living Things is a more focused follow-up to A Thousand Suns. Sound is much more consistant here, which could be seen as a positive ofr negative depending on your preferences. Hybrid Theory purists who have been begging for Hybrid Theory 3 ever since MTM will probably like Lies Greed Misery, maybe Victimized, and possibly Lost in The Echo, and dislike the rest of the album. Like how I described ATS in the review I made for it, this album (along with ATS) is for people who can accept change. The serious tone of Hybrid Theory that has been a staple across all of their albums remains here, and wouldn't see a massive change until One More Light. If you're okay with that, get this album. You truly won't regret it.
THIS ALBUM IS ON FLEEK! THIS ALBUM IS SO ILL BRO!💣 THIS ALBUM IS THE BOMB ON MY BIRTHDAY CAKE! LIKE I WISH THIS ALBUM TASTED AS GOOD AS IT SOUNDS BECAUSE IF IT DID I WOULD HAVE LIKINBETES. EVEN IF YOU COULD EAT THIS ALBUM I WOULD HOPE IT WOULD BE LABELED A VEGETABLE SO THAT I DONT HAVE TO EAT BROCCOLI. I COULD SIMPLY EAT LINKIN PARK IT EVEN KINDA SOUNDS LIKE A VEGETABLE. rip mike jenkenson
I've always considered this to be a phenomenal album, and will still continue to do so, Burn It Down is great. When I heard about Chester I didn't want to believe it. Goes to show that even those we look up to never have everything under control and won't always be around. I'm sorry it lead to this man, wish we could've done something to help...
I listened to this album over and over and over again one night while I was out of my mind on lsd and nitrous, and the music just got better and better. Grieving the horrific injury of a friend, the songs soothed my pain. Faced with my mistakes in life, the album spoke to me on so many levels and took me on a journey through my troubles and brought me to a place of transformation. Sober now, it will always have a special place in my heart and in my collection. Sounds great in my car too! Thanks LP for making great music. This one really helped me get through.
Like any other fan, I hold Hybrid Theory and Meteora at the top of the list. This album to me, sounds the most like Linkin Park of the last 4 albums. I know The Hunting Party is more of a rock album than this, but this one sounds like a return to roots in a lot of ways. Chester and Mike's vocals have that chemistry that they do on the first two. The difference is of course the pop style, but I feel like the sound on this album works for them. If you're a diehard guitar and drums guy you'll hate it.
I enjoy every song on this album. LP has a unique evolution to their style but always tell a story. Unlike other groups who "try out different styles" and usually fail, LP can play anything (it's called talent)! Unlike some other reviews, some of LP "hardest" metal-like rock has ended up my least favorite of their songs. But even those are still good. Can't wait for the next album.
Not it's not the rock we are used to hearing. I didn't really like A Thousand suns, but my faith in them was restored with this album. They are experimenting and incorporating more into their music. Solid album
This has got to be my least favorite Linkin Park album. At least Minutes to Midnight and A Thousand Suns had its few good tracks (Given Up, What I've Done, When They Come for Me, The Catalyst, Wretches and Kings) but the only one I really like on here is Castle of Glass, and even that one took many repeated listens to grow on me. This album isn't my style, and I can admit that's the main reason I don't like it. But A Thousand Suns isn't my style either, yet I actually like ATS (I know, unpopular opinion) because it was creative and alternative. But I feel like this is mainly pop. I don't know. But my main question is: why is everything in caps? I had to edit all the titles because my OCD was driving me insane, lol.
This is my favorite album better than minutes to minute in my opinion. It has a great sound to it that I crave. Not sure why it is averaged to be 4 stars as ratings. Castle of glass, I'll be gone, burn it down, and lost in the echo are awesome and would definitely recommend them. This is better than the hunting party. I wish they would make some more music with a similar sound to this
I really like this album! It's an interesting album. I did not go into it looking for Hybrid Theory or Meteora. Those albums came out over a decade ago...I don't expect LP to recreate those over and over. That would be boring. I really appreciate all the experimenting they have done over the years though. I am surprised every time I listen to their new music and that's what kept me a fan for all these years. This is definitely something new. Loving Castle of Glass, Lost In The Echo, Roads Untravelled, and Skin to Bone. Lost in the Echo reminds me of a very evolved Hybrid Theory song in a way. I think to stay an LP fan you really have to be ready for anything. To help gauge my opinion and its relativity to your tastes: I'm one of those fans that actually really liked A Thousand Suns...Wretches & Kings is an awesome song and I maybe liked one song off Minutes to Midnight (Given Up). I would definitely recommend this album though! Especially if you like LP's electronic side.
