When i first heard the songs, i was very disappointed... Linkin Park is no longer the same Linkin Park. Change is good, but too much change is harmful. It's no longer nu-metal but a variant of Pop Rock. HT & Meteora were such great albums that the expectations for MTM were very high(a bit too high). Only the first 6 tracks are good with What I've Done being the best. Overall I would give it 3/5. Let's hope the next album will be a return to the basics... I believe LP can do better & they'll do better next time.
