Alright well this is my first post here, long-time listener, just joined. Hi Anyways, I downloaded the album yesterday and after listening through several times, I must say I am blown away. This is truly Linkin Park's most daring record yet. And in my opinion, it's their best to date. The album flows beautifully, and is nearly flawless. Songwriting and lyrics are absolutely amazing, well above anything LP has done before. Even the interludes are amazing. They make the following songs even more awesome. The track that immediately stood out to me was When They Come For Me. Oh my gosh, I cannot get this song out of my head! Mike's rapping on this song is simply incredible! Blackout is probably the weirdest song I have ever heard, but I completely love it. Chesters versatility on this song is mind-blowing. Hell, the whole album is so diverse. It seems the band drew elements from every genre they could. Robot Boy lyrically might be one of my favorite Linkin Park songs to date. Waiting for the End is a great song, and I think it has the potential to be a massive hit. The layered rapping is great. Wretches and Kings is the lone song on the album that reminds me of older LP. And in no way is that a bad thing. Out of 10, this album pushes a 9 for me. Simply fantastic. If this is who Linkin Park really is, then I can't wait to see what the future holds for this band.
