    There's plenty of hip-hop influence, just not as much rapping. That much is apparent in the beats for a good chunk of the songs. But the percussion parts are also in flux a lot (much like the rest of the instrumentation on the album) so it's touch and go.

    Sorry For Now is sooo dope. Chester's verse was a great touch. It was a good to great album. Happy with it but I hope they go another, more unique direction for the next one if that makes sense. Lyrically it wasn't as amazing as I thought it would be solely for the reason of how reparative they were in each song. Overall a 7/10 I'd say after my first listen.

    I just listened to "Sorry for Now" and paused the album...holy fucking shit
    What the FUCK was that? I wish the whole album was that weird.

    :CUMULUS:

    Finished the track with goose bumps. Anyways, time to move onto the next track.

    This album is better than THP and LT combined. And thats just on listening to Halfway Right, Sorry for Now, and Sharp Edges.
    These songs are what Id expected to hear when they said they focused on Personal lyrics and great melodies.

    The EXPERIMENTATION on this album is not much different from ATS... it's just in ''another direction''. I really liked that.

    Note: ATS is my favorite album.

    To be honest, this feels like Imagine Dragons meets Linkin Park and I'm very okay with that. Kinda wishing they were touring together now.

    I remember that, so I probably should've figured when you didn't mention an artist name... whoops.

    I don't see a close enough comparison in most of the song. The part towards the end that's most comparable... to me, still enough change, especially when you consider that if the title of the video is correct, "Unreleased Hybrid Theory Demo"... demos typically end up influencing a song that ends up on a studio album, no?

    I dunno, to me it sounded like using it as criticism, especially because it was noted he didn't like the first two albums (called them "shit")... I personally don't think that's fair.

    they should've experimented more with the sctructures. I remember the e-mail mike sent to the band saying "let's get weird". Well, i wish they really had gotten weird, far from generic... then this album would've been much better.

    But i think there's room for me enjoying it in a medium-long time, kind of "learning" to listen to it.

    The structures are generic, yeah. But the instrumentals are the "let's get weird". There's a lot in there. I'm okay with generic song structure if the underlying music is constantly in flux.

    Meteora and Living Things are exactly what you'd expect from Linkin Park. In this album the only song I found linkpark-ish is Talking to Myself... and maybe nobody can save me.

    The others are pure experimentation..

    OK, first of all, on friday, I will go buy the album, because I have always bought LP's albums and I need the CD format to listen in my car.

    BUT, as I love to listen to FLAC, I had to listen to this album in the optimal conditions, and for that, I had to dl it.

    Anyway, been a HUGE fan of LP since the beginning, always loved their NU Metal style and always wanted them to surprise me.
    I have just listened to the album and ... wow, well done, well effin done LP ! You guys surprised me, it's just wow, I have no words.

    The opening song is crazy, and that song of Sorry for now, when Mike is singing and Chester rapping, if probably the BEST thing LP has done in AGES, since A thousand suns

    Really, I have no words how to describe this, I love their nu metal style, but man, they are also so good at doing the other stuff, congratulation LP

    Now, as always, I don't know how the album will grow up in me, and how years will impact my feelings for this album (for exemple, Living Things and The Hunting Party do not seem to "age" well in my tastes so it's rare I go back to those albums) but LP has done an incredible job here.

    Love the whole album honestly. Will still have to see if it stands the test of time. I can't stop listening to talking to myself even though it isn't necessarily my favorite track as of yet. Something about it is addicting and not just because it's new.

    Wow, I can honestly say after hearing Heavy I was worried but this album, but I'm enjoying it! Is it the best thing I have ever heard? No. However, this album isn't garbage. I appreciate some of the subtle sounds in the mix, as well as Mike Shinoda's improved performance as a singer (not saying he was bad). I also appreciate the different styles of singing Chester tries out on this album. While I'm really liking most of the songs, the ones I like the most are:

    1. Sorry For Now
    2. Nobody Can Save Me
    3. One More Light
    4. Talking To Myself

    Damn, LPA is praising this album overall while LPLive is ripping it overall. Crazy how split this album is.
