    The New York Times has a small review of Minutes to Midnight on their website. You can see the review by clicking here but here is what they had to say:

    It takes talent to yell at the top of your lungs like Chester Bennington. He does that raspy thing. It’s amazing he does that night after night on tour and doesn’t lose his voice. On “Minutes to Midnight” (Warner Brothers) they mix hip-hop with rock without sacrificing the integrity of either. The rock sounds like rock, and the hip-hop sounds like hip-hop. It’s a guy rapping over an electric guitar, and it’s beautiful. A bunch of groups have tried the rock-hip-hop thing, and they don’t sound natural. It doesn’t sound like Linkin Park sat around and said, “Hey let’s be a rock group with a rapper.” Their music doesn’t sound contrived. They tend to tackle serious issues. Their lyrics make you think. There’s nothing I hate more than a stupid song, or a song that makes you stupider.

    Several artists including Chester Bennington payed tribute to Dimebag Darrell and talked about the decline of music in public schools and music in general:

    "Bleed it Out" is currently "Most Played" and "Most Requested" on KROQ for this week

    www.kroq.com
    click "KROQ Music" on the top left of the page to see the info

    I think this deserves to be on the cover of the LPA

    "Further solidifying its place as one the world's leading rock acts, LINKIN PARK's third studio release, "Minutes to Midnight", has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales exceeding 1 million copies in the U.S. in just 4 weeks. "Minutes to Midnight" debuted at #1 and sold 623,996 copies in its first week alone, making it the highest debut of the year. "It's not a stretch to say that they could be the biggest act on the planet," says James Montgomery of MTV.

    "Minutes To Midnight" has already shipped over 3.3 million worldwide. The album has reached #1 in 32 countries and is certified platinum in 16 countries."

    It's just the Live in Texas version, that's been in rotation at MTV ever since LIT came out.

    I'm fully convinced its a fake. Very much so actually.

    A fansite in the top friends, when no others are featured and the list is 98% bands? Think about it. A little TOO fishy.
