Customer Reviews

This album is one of their best albums yet.
kiNGgamerboy
This is the softest song on the album and will be the only song that your mother would probably like (unless she likes really, really loud music).
JCStreetSoldier
It is a bit different than the previous albums but still good.

It’s bizarre. Linkin Park’s bizarre, that is. Not just their genres, or their albums, or their music videos, or their songs, but the phenomenon that IS Linkin Park. Since the late nineties, there hasn’t been a band as disagreed upon as Linkin Park has been. People criticized them for screaming too much in Hybrid Theory and Meteora; they didn’t scream or rap enough in Minutes to Midnight; A Thousand Suns, which blended reggae and rock and hip-hop, was too weird or political (but the naysayers said it was Techno, which is apparently a criticism); Living Things was too dub-steppy (even though the folk elements were prominent too); and The Hunting Party will probably be too loud and aggressive. Linkin Park can’t win, but they will make great music to the unbiased ear. That’s all that matters.

The Hunting Party is heavier than Hybrid Theory and it’s better than Living Things. This is what you’ve been waiting for Hybrid Theory fans (you know, you guys that claim it “isn’t” about Nu Metal, but rather about heavy, aggressive music). With that being said, this is probably Linkin Park’s most important album in the last ten years. This is where we discover whether the naysayers have any merit in their overly hateful—or forcefully indifferent—criticisms . . .

This is Linkin Park’s loudest, rawest, most visceral album to date. If Living Things was a mixture of all their previous albums, The Hunting Party purges out their previous sounds. Like Minutes to Midnight, it’s another clean slate. A new sound. As Mike raps about in the first track on the album, “Careful what you shoot for, ‘cause you might hit what you aim for.

First things first, I really hope reviewers are taking the time to play this album several times over the course of a few days before they write their reviews and not throwing their hands up in the air after listening to it for the first time. It's a very difficult position to try and convince the world that an album is "good" or simply "bad" because listening to music and liking (or hating it) is very subjective: What I like may not be what you like.

I'm not a fan of comparing LP's albums with each other: It's like comparing your children/siblings or pets with each other and that's just not fair. The Hunting Party packs a punch that has not been felt in a very long time with it's raw sounding "garage-band-basement" guitar riffs, refreshing and catchy lyrics and head smashing drums which brings back memories of the late 90's.

The Hunting Party presents itself as if we're listening in on a slightly old home video playing in a jacked-up VCR that you have to constantly hit the tracking button on in order to correct the bad audio and static infested video. With interlude-like quickies of a little kid shouting "I'm not allowed to say certain things….. aaaaaaaaah!" in between "Keys to the Kingdom" and "All For Nothing" or hearing a father cheering for his kid to "run run run" as you hear the sound of an aluminum bat hitting a baseball during a little league baseball game on a warm Saturday afternoon. Paying attention to details like this is what dreams are made of when listening to an album more than once to catch these subtleties.

This album is an exploration of rock music and who better than LP to guide our ears through the lesson.

Imagine that most bands are in the shape of squares. You see what kind they are and what sort of music they put out labeled straight on them. Linkin Park is different in the sense that if you take a few steps to the side, you'll discover 6 different faces and find that you were looking at a cube.

Linkin Park's impression with Hybrid Theory and Meteora was so strong and gained such a huge following that many people fail to recognize LP's true identity as risk takers and experimenters. Every album of theirs is a refinement and a "hunt" for a new dimension to their sound. This album stays true to their character while retaining more of their past.

I'll describe this album in the following way:

Take the energy of Hybrid Theory, combine with the melodies of A Thousand Suns and Minutes to Midnight and mash it with the character of Living Things and you get The Hunting Party!

And yes, I was listening to the album as I wrote this review :)

Somewhere, in one of these reviews I think, I read that this album is something like a prequel to Hybrid Theory, and I think that is a pretty good description. While I haven't stopped following LP due to their last couple albums, it's nice to get back some of the HT vibe. It's kind of like they've come full circle in what has been almost 15 years now since HT. Good stuff.

This is my Favorite Band
Album: The Hunting Party
Artist: Linkin Park
Released: June 17th 2014

Lyrics: The lyrics to the hunting party are pretty much the same throughout the entire album. They are about war, sacrifice, fighting, anger, fire, battlefields... you get the idea. I have always thought that Linkin Park's lyrics are really good on all their albums and they are and the choruses are usually weak as they are on the hunting party, but Mike's rapping lyrics are probably the best yet, you can really tell he put a lot of thought in to what he wanted to say. I don't know I mean I go back to Meteora and the rapping is amazing too, so I am a little conflicted I think the lyrics are really good, End of Story... 4/5
What the songs are emotionally about: Now this is where the album is weak... usually the emotion Linkin park gives is a raw and pretty deep (for the most part) however, this is simply one emotion anger, and that's all they really give. ANGER ANGER ANGER, yet they do have one song that's not so much anger which is Final Masquerade, but even with this song they still are angry at times. I love Linkin Park when they are angry but I also love them when they are not angry all the time. It's nice on most of the songs, but I would like a little more variety like... Living Things... they had anger, sadness, love, and forgiveness. The hunting party lacks that aspect.... so... 3/5
Rhythm/Beat: The rhythm of the guitar drums bass and synth/piano is amazing as always. I love all the riffs, and the drums are very raw and powerful. Now on this album there is guest artist and on two of the songs...
