Editorial Reviews

'Rick Rubin asked us what we wanted this album to sound like. We wanted to create something that maintained the integrity of the band's personality, but pushed our boundaries.Rick challenged us that no boundaries should exist whatsoever in our creative pursuit.' Minutes To Midnight is rock's most anticipated album of the year. Four years since the release of Linkin Park's quadruple-platinum, #1 smash Meteora and after more than a year of musical experimentation Minutes To Midnight redefines one of today's most adventurous, accomplished and acclaimed bands. This is the non-explict version.

Different, yes, but hot. All I can say is that it was well worth the wait for this album. There's actually still some of their old sound in it, though not as much. "Given Up" and "Bleed It Out" are much like their original sound... then you've got some awesome guitar solos throughout the album, and the E-Bow on "No More Sorrow" made that my choice as "favorite song". "In Pieces", my other favorite, is sort of a power ballad... the great thing is how it shows how great Chester's voice is. "Hands Held High" is pretty much all Mike rapping, but the words are powerful... that song and "No More Sorrow" seem political, another new characteristic for LP. The only song I really didn't care for that much was "In Between"... not the best single on the album. Mike's a better rapper than singer. :P

As for the people complaining that it doesn't even sound like them: So they changed part of their style. How many songs did you expect them to make using the Nu-Metal sound without escaping that annoying "hey, this sounds just like their other song" comment? It's good they changed. A wise move and an awesome album. Kudos to you, LP. Keep it coming!

People's reviews are really disappointing me here. It reminds me of all the people who complain that Korn isn't heavy anymore now that they're finally making some great (though overlooked) albums. Linkin Park is doing the right thing here. They're trying to leave behind the Nu Metal genre that has pretty much fizzled out. Without this move, they probably wouldn't be around much longer. Luckily, they did the smart thing and expanded their sound. Does it sound different? Yes. Is it still Linkin Park? Yes. I remember reading that Mike wouldn't be rapping much, and I was disappointed at first. But the album's depth really makes up for that. The songs sucked me in to the point that I almost forgot about the absence of rapping verses. They're that good. Sure, there are softer songs. But they're executed perfectly. Not to mention, the few heavy songs on here are, in my opinion, heavier than anything else the band has done. Finally we get to hear true hard rock songs without that overly produced distorted guitar. We also get to hear acoustic songs on this album. I would also like to say that Mike's presence is not missing! He co-produced the album, plays most of the rhythm guitar so that Brad can finally play some lead, contributes 2 great raps, and actually sings one song all on his own (which he does amazingly, I might add... kinda reminds me of a deeper version of Ben Gibbard's voice..) Look, if you only like bands like Evanescence, Breaking Benjamin, etc etc (Don't get me wrong, I love those bands) then this album probably isn't for you. But if you have a diverse music taste or can adapt to change for a good cause (LP surviving the test of time), then pick this up while it's still cheap.

On May 4, 2007, "Minutes to Midnight", Linkin Park's fifth official album was leaked. Minutes To Midnight, revolving around the concept of the notorious doomsday clock, molds a new image to be branded onto the name 'Linkin Park'. Before this release, Linkin Park was known for their catchy drop d guitar chords, undeniably muscular choruses, and articulate raps dealing with the trials and tribulations of everyday life. Linkin Park's very first demo was released in 1997, before the band was even known as Linkin Park. Ten years have passed, and a new formula has been invented and finely executed.

Minutes To Midnight is the definition of what one may call an audible odyssey, taking the listener on a roller coaster of a ride, but somehow managing to stay on track and not lose focus of what the concept of the album is all about. Ten years has passed and through these years, Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda's lyrical landscape has expanded to concepts listeners have never been exposed to. Several songs (No More Sorrow, The Little Things Give You Away, Hands Held High, and the first single 'What I've Done') encompass a political message. Unlike many rock bands today, Linkin Park decides to leave out their own agenda, and leaves one with a myriad of issues to think about and to make their own judgments.

Most noticeably different on this record is the fine addition of ballads and power ballads, a musical corridor Linkin Park has been hesitant to explore in the past. Luckily, Linkin Park does it quite well. Chester Bennington's transitional legacy as one of metal's most admired screamers and one of rock's finest singers is not omitted on this album. Rob Bourdon, already exposed as an extraordinary drummer, took his skills to the next level on this album.

Got the vinyl in nice plastic wrap, and surrounded by sturdy cardboard that did a great job to protect my vinyl. Plays fantastic on my record player. Love LP, love their vinyls! Thanks for another great vinyl.

Linkin Park has said this is their new sound. Nobody denies this album sounds waaay different than their previous genre defining efforts. Apologists for the album claim that the new sound is better, more mature, that we should embrace it. If that's true, then explain to me why the two singles chosen to be released, What I've Done and Bleed It Out, are the only two songs on the album that sound anything remotely like Linkin Park's "old" sound, right down to Chester screaming and Mike rapping.

If the new sound isn't a bust, why are they trying to hide it behind these two songs?

This album is to Linkin Park what Slang was to Def Leppard. Want to bet that just like Def Leppard, after all the public talk about how happy they are with their new sound, the band runs back to the "less mature" "old" sound on the next album? Def Leppard never recovered from claiming to have outgrown the fans of the sound that made them, will Linkin Park?
