I have to say that it blew my expectations, this album is just amazing!
Martina R
I would also say that Let Down which also is more of a ballad than anything would be the second best song on the cd and its lyrics are just as good.
Steven Resnick
As for the music, I love it very much and I'm very happy I bought this CD.

So let's get this over quick. This is essentially Linkin Park, but darker and with no rap.

The good news is that if you like Chester in LP you will love him here. Great range and vocals over the entire album and an interesting side of the screaming front man to one of my favorite bands. So those that are worried don't be. There isn't a stinker in the entire album and from start to finish it is a good listen. You have some ups and downs (well, mostly downs) since this is a truly depressing album, but it is delivered in a way that will not immediately hit you as such.

Much like LP tracks on the first 2 albums were about break-ups, heartache, and finding yourself through the flaws, yet somehow they rocked, the same is true here. Despite the depressing subject matter, I had a good time with this album. Some standouts include: "Fire", "Crawl Back In", "Let Down", "Into You", and "Walking In Circles". Really though the album flows quite well and anyone in for some rock and decent radio friendly rock should give a listen.

Now the bad news. We've been here before. "Minutes To Midnight" from LP was essentially a Chester Album, much like conversely Fort Minor's "The Rising Tied" was Mike Shinoda's album and time to shine. See, since there wasn't that much Mike on "M2M", Chester who was predominately featured really rose to the occasion there. He basically gave us everything he had and it shows here. Nothing on this album besides a few clever hooks shows anything new from Chester and that is hard for me to admit.

I am a huge LP fan and love their overall philosophy and style when it comes to writing and recording their various tracks. This album, while technically great sounding and well produced, is extremely generic.

"Out of Ashes" is the debut album from Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington's new band/solo act, Dead by Sunrise. Eschewing the rap-rock for some new wave and pop influences, "Out of Ashes" teams Bennington up long-time collaborators and electro-rock outfit Julien-K (which, incidentally, features ex-Orgy members Ryan Shuck and Amir Derakh) and producer Howard Benson.

In all honesty, most of it sounds like it could be the sequel to "Minutes to Midnight." It's exactly the kind of polished radio-rock you'd expect from producer Howard Benson, but that's not to say that it's bad. Actually, if you dug the balladry explored on the previously mentioned album, you're likely to be swept away by many of the softer tunes Chester and company break out on their debut affair. The gorgeous melodies of "Give Me Your Name" -- in spite of some cornball lyrics -- shows that the angsty young man who once penned the lyrical genius (ahem) that is "Shut up when I'm talking to you!" has grown quite substantially. Each of these songs -- many of which originated by Bennington strumming an acoustic guitar -- could be a hit in their own right, and show that outside of his safe zone, the man can actually write just simply good songs.

In fact, most of the album can be appreciated on the most basic level, provided you can forgive the massive amount of gloss Benson applies to the material. Underneath the layers of synthesized guitar and keyboards, the songs stand strong on their own merits. Take for example, "Let Down," a song that made its debut during the ReAct Now: Music & Relief concert in 2005.

How often do you listen to a CD and love every song that you hear? That's the case with Dead By Sunrise, at least for me. Let me just say that this is not Linkin Park in the sense that there's no rapping going on here, however, if you are a fan of Linkin Park and the voice of Chester Bennington I honestly don't see how you don't walk away from this a fan of DBS. "Crawl Back In" is a great rocking first single. Chester's voice can be so tender on tracks like "Let Down" & "Give Me Your Name" and then he gives you that guttural sound from the pits of hell on "My Suffering". My favorite song is "Walking In Circles". This song is so haunting. The first thing I thought of when I heard it was the movie 2012. This would have been a great theme song for that movie. I would love to hear this song with a full orchestra. I'm just thrilled with this CD. I said earlier that Chester can produce a sound from the pits of hell but I truly believe that his voice is a gift from God.

Dead By Sunrise is a side project of Linkin Park's Chester Bennington. I would have to say that it's an amazing cd and there's no song that disappoints. I do believe that there will be some fans who purchase the cd based on Linkin Park's name and expect a similar sound to Linkin Park, but thankfully Bennington shows he can venture into a different genre of rock.

If I had to put Dead By Sunrise into a genre it would be in the alternative rock section not the hard rock/metal category that it's currently in according to Amazon. It's not to say that Dead By Sunrise doesn't have songs that you could compare with Linkin Park either.

I think one of the songs that shows this the best is Condemned and My Suffering where you will find Bennington's patented screams. Other then that I think you will have a much tougher time comparing the songs to Linkin Park, which may disappoint some.

As for the songs I think the best song on the cd is Walking in Cirles. It's a slower song more ballad like then anything, but has excellent lyrics. I would also say that Let Down which also is more of a ballad than anything would be the second best song on the cd and its lyrics are just as good.

Even with the differnt genre style of Dead By Sunrise it proves again in my mind why Chester has one of the best voices in rock music today. He can practically do any style and sound great while doing it! Excellent debut cd for Dead By Sunrise!
