    ArtistDirect.com editor in cheif Rick Florino got the chance to listen to Linkin Park's fifth studio album LIVING THINGS recently. It's a more than positive preview of the album, where he goes into detail about tracks we knew nothing about, including the "plain fucking sick" VICTIMIZED, the "classic-rock" infused ROADS UNTRAVELED, "tripped out" SKIN TO BONE and the "cinematic closer" POWERLESS. Check out his impressions below!

    Jizzing all over my computer screen. THIS, THIS, and THIS:

    Let's get this out of the way right now. This is Linkin Park's best record and a landmark for rock as a whole. On June 26 the band's faithful and music fans as a whole will get one incredible ride.

    Absolutely amazing article.. I don't know if they're dead on.. But they sure bowed down to LP on this record. I'm loving it

    I'm so looking forward to VICTIMIZED now, like I said before, I'm looking forward to the whole album, and not focusing on individual tracks.

    That's right. Only Linkin Park is able to make such amazing music of this kind.

    Still, missing information from TINFOIL and POWERLESS.

    They've ruled my world since 2001, if you ask me.

    You know. Whenever the band themselves talk about how the record is gonna sound, I find myself wincing....but then when articles like this come out my excitement rises over 9000.

    And I must say, I'm really intrigued to hear "Victimized" now, if only for the apparently brutal scream. Hell, just give me the album now.

    In My Remains is now my second most anticipated song. But really, I can't take this anymore. It seems like every bit of new info builds me up, and the next breaks me back down :lol:

    This article has me pumped beyond belief! Admittedly he's missed out Tinfoil and Powerless but what he has reviewed sounds amazing! It should be noted though that at least to my knowledge he's always given LP favourable reviews - I remember he was one of the few initial reviewers that saw ATS for what it was.

    The one thing that's stopping me from having an orgasm right now is the fact that this was done by Artistdirect. Artistdirect LOVES Linkin Park like no other music site. If the band released a song featuring animal farts it would probably still get a 5/5 from these guys. But the song descriptions sound really interesting and I cannot wait to hear this album.

    Also, it looks like Chester's "I don't want to scream anymore" comment was complete, and utter, bull shit :lol:

    Holy shit! Anticipation over 9,000!
    LGM gets yet more love & victimized just sounds insane. If this album truly is this good, holy fuck. Although no mention of tinfoil/powerless? The closers are typically the best tracks.

    Must. Not. Get. Hopes. Up!!!! :WTF:

    Oh. My. Fucking. God.

    I almost started crying I must say, this made me so pumped that I thought I would have an heart attack.

    what an AMAZING review, if I already was excited about this album I don't even know what to say now.



    No, seriously, Victimized? And every other track's description it's all brutal I can't wait to hear this!
