I was looking at the the Living Things wiki page, and noticed the majority of the reviews were positive. Out of the thirteen reviews listed, the average was about a 7/10 (link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Living_Things_(Linkin_Park_album) ). However on Metacritic the band only registers 60/100, pretty poor.(Link: http://www.metacritic.com/music/living-things/critic-reviews ). Are certain sites only taken into consideration for Metacritic? Furthermore, why is it that larger publications seem to never give Linkin Park any love? This album isn't bad. I for one really enjoy this album, yet it seems in some people eyes this band can do no good. I don't know whether some people just hate Linkin Park in general, regardless of their music, or they truly think LP consistently sucks. Either way, it's pretty disappointing to see some of these reviews. Also, I know these reviews mean very little, but I cannot help but think that some people who are borderline on whether to give the CD shot are going to read the reviews first and be turned away.
