Not one song on Living Things made me feel as good as the first time I heard The Catalyst. I was surprised, elated, and wildly impressed. Then I heard the whole album and it was almost all of that caliber. Not many bands/artists make me feel that way, but LP managed to do it for one album. Then Living Things came out and they reminded me that they are mostly just like every other band that is content with releasing music that challenges them not even a little.
