4.0 out of 5 stars Give me a break!, September 17, 2007
This review is from: Minutes To Midnight (Audio CD)
After reading the reviews here over several weeks, I finally bought this CD today.
While I was not expecting much, what with all the negative reviews (I used to trust true music fans to have a pretty good opinion of a long-standing band such as LP), I was not disappointed with it.
I'm not here to bust anyone's chops but some of you don't seem to know how to appreciate music for what it can do.
Minutes to Midnight does not appear to be an attempt to recreate the sounds of Hybrid Theory or Meteora, but then, Meteora did not seem to try to recreate the sounds of Hybrid Theory.
It's sad for me to think that people would want a band's sound to never change. I hear it all too often when I turn on the radio and a guitar riff or drum beat can tell me who the artist is before I even hear a lyric. It's sickening.
Give Linkin Park the props they deserve for delivering something new; something thought provoking, emotional and sincere. This CD has many elements that can be appreciated in and of themselves, not just as a compliation of LP's new work.
Tracks like Leave Out All The Rest, Hands Held High, and The Little Things Give You Away really touched a sensitive spot in my soul for my own personal reasons.
So, no... Minutes may not be another Hybrid Theory or Meteora, but it can stand on its own just like the first two.
Maybe try reading the meaning behind the words and feeling it through the music instead of taking everything at face value.

Awesome review, though fairly old by now =P I agree totally. My friend and I were arguing all last night at work over this album. (He doesn't like it at all, wanted a more Hybrid Theory/Meteora sound..)

Either way, I agree with you completely!
