Linkin Park - Burn It Down


Although rooted in alternative metal, Linkin Park became one of the most successful acts of the 2000s by welcoming elements of hip-hop, modern rock, and atmospheric electronica into their music. The band's rise was indebted to the aggressive rap-rock movement made popular by the likes of Korn and Limp Bizkit, a movement that paired grunge's alienation with a bold, buzzing soundtrack. ...

Editorial Reviews

Minutes to Midnight stands to defend Linkin Park's status as the hardest-rockin' softies in mainstream music. Like its predecessors Hybrid Theory (2000) and Meteroa (2003), Minutes to Midnight flexes plenty of decibel-heavy muscle ("Given Up," "Bleed It Out," "No More Sorrow") and made-to-order, melodic radio fare ("Leave Out All the Rest," "Shadow of the Day," "In Pieces"). But for all its volume, Linkin Park likes to paint its heart openly on its sleeve with suspicious sonic drama, as in the palpably saccharine "Valentine's Day." Fortunately, co-producer Rick Rubin brings all these elements to pinnacle effect with the surprise "Hands Held High." On past efforts, the combination of breezy keyboard, arpeggiated guitar, choral vocals, and a military snare-beat would yield another slab of smarm, here MC Mike Shinoda drops the two best verses of his career, blending vocal styles with singer Chester Bennington for a moving piece that's as welcome a repertorial addition as Linkin Park is ever likely to muster. --Jason Kirk

3.0 out of 5 stars Umm... It says Linkin Park but where are they?? May 19, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I started listening to this because I realized hey, they came out with a new album. WOW.

Okay we start off with Wake. I started listening to it like, is the song going to start... NOW? So I get into it. I'm like... Lost Prophets? I had to double check with Amazon (as I had downloaded it from i-tunes) to make sure it was even the same band. Yes it was them. I bet when they go on tour Joe Han's just going to have to sit there, doing nothing. LOL. It's all rock, none of that scratch edge that made them them.

As you progress through the album it gets worse. I almost wondered if it was a different band borrowing Mike Shinoda for vocals. Or one of those "tribute of LP" bands that's been cropping up lately.

Shadow of the Day sounds like someone sat there and said "Now guys, Good Charlotte has been doing very good. Okay? Lets emulate them to get those kids listening to us too!"

What I've done. I'm like, Yes. Maybe. It started coming back, the hard core edge, the rap, the rock. Everything but the music sampling which was so them at the time. It still was like, Um, what do we do now? This really still reminded me of Lost Prophets the most. I was rather scared for a moment yet again.

They tried somewhere around the end of the album again. Really. Because it was like, ahh, their old stuff. Still missing that raw edge though.

I listened finally to hands held high. After the beginning intro. I started to cry. Or something like that. Because they scared me, the past 12 songs. What came through my speakers finally was Linkin Park. Though listening through it, it sill sounded like they were trying too hard.

A good number of my friends look at me with mild disgust when I suggest that Linkin Park owns a unique brand of musical genius. But as someone who listens to large quantities of music from mainstream to indie, I contend that no one has mastered the art of rap-rock like they have (Quarashi is the only band I can think of that even belongs in the same neighborhood). There's an almost mathematical perfection to both Hybrid Theory and Meteora, their first two full, non-remix albums. Ultimately, Linkin Park has offered something that I couldn't find anywhere else.

I'm not one to say that bands shouldn't change and mature. But, honestly, I didn't want to see Linkin Park change, because they're already unique. They have changed in Minutes to Midnight, and the metamorphosis isn't a positive one.

Upon a first listen, two things are glaring:

1) Mike Shinoda's rapping presence is minimal. I've always preferred Chester's raspy vocals to Shinoda's rapping, but he's so underutilized on this album that you realize that he's an integral part to the Linkin Park sound. The fusion of his rapping and Chester's vocals combined with excellent beats and melodies makes the band.

2) There are a lot of songs that almost qualify as ballads. The good news is, most of them are pretty pleasant. Chester really does have a great voice- even when he isn't screaming and rasping. The bad news is that they take up slots on the album that I wanted to see filled with the rap-rock-electronica-metal that immediately entranced me on Hybrid Theory and Meteora.

Undoubtedly, this album is the type that grows each time you play it, but it simply doesn't do what fans of the band wanted it to do. There are a few hints of where the band has been.

1.0 out of 5 stars TOTAL JUNK!!!! May 15, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I bought the Linkin Park album and put myself through the pain of sitting and listening to every second of every song. This album is Linkin Park at their WORST!! They should of never went with producer Rick Rubin and should of stayed with Don Gilmore. Linkin Park is ruined!! I have bought all there cds' as they have come out but because of this one I will listen to somebody elses before I will buy there next album!! DO NOT waste your money!!

Linkin Park returned with this lighter touched album that has gotten people wondering "Where has the old Linkin Park gone?" Though at times that Linkin Park is missed deeply after their two outstanding cds "Hybrid Theory" and "Meteroa"...they are far from being completely lost. Chester, Mike, and the boys hit into a different aspect of the where their producer wanted them to go. They headed into this album knowing one thing "Throw your old ways of doing an album...and try to create something new...fresh...and lively." And after 100 demos for the new lies "Minutes to Midnight."

Mike-less songs, Chester-less songs, and a few slow beats make a lot of fans turning in the other direction. But before you blow this album off completely...take a second, sit down, and listen to the songs deeply as they flow. Has Linkin Park completely lost their touch? Gracious no. With the like of Bleed It Out...Linkin Park can still impress with the Mike & Chester duo. Mike took a less lead part in this album, even with his two solo songs "Hands Held High" and "In Between". Mike is still not lost in the songs, as he supports a softer background mode as he still takes part vocally in the background. This album let the two express themselves better as musicians and showing how creative they can be.

The band still knows how to rock, with a tremendous live tour in spot being Atlanta which myself attended...and was blown away. Minutes To Midnight album took a lot of the setlist, but was performed amazingly and improved my liking of the album even more. There will still be haters, dis-likers, and every other kinda if negative critic to this album...just like any other album...but try and do whatever you can to listen to this album.

Go Listen to Avril Lavign & Britney Spears!
No he's right! I mean Avril Lavigne and Britney Spears now both sound "heavier" than Linkin Park does. Thanks for the suggestion!!

Politics kills the CD
Why is it that you think that Linkin Park has no business to speak their views on political issues? Isn't that the point of making music, to express how you are feeling? I would be scared it if WAS subliminal, that would more propagandistic than to just go right out and say it.
