    Haven't outrgrown the album and I've actually started to like the songs I didn't initially did. I guess it's more accepting the tracks for what they are, but I'd say, so far, it's aging better than LT for me.

    This might be my least favorite Linkin Park album. I didn't really like LT, but there were a few songs that stood out to me. Here, aside from KTTK and War, I find it forgettable. Never have I skipped so many songs on a Linkin Park album before. I acknowledge the album was made with a good intent, but it's not for me, so I lost interest fast. I also blame the simplistic song writing as part of my main problem with the album, it makes the album come off as rushed or lazy. It's a little bland in a sense, in the past I called it hollow. Aiming for a hard-rock #visceral album they lost their creativeness in the process that made an album like ATS special. Instead it comes off as one-dimensional and somewhat predictable. It's almost like a gimmick album, but that's seems to be the vibe of their last few albums. I only hope that their next album is a little less conventional and a little more out of the blue. /Mini rant

    2 months in LT and I found myself listening to only Lost In The Echo, In My Remains and Castle of glass constantly. This however, I've listened start to stop numerous times and I'm still impressed similar to how I was 2 months into ATS. Definitely the best album since ATS

    Amazing songs. Amazing album. A Line in a Sand is a top 10 LP track for me. Keys to the Kingdom is amazing. Album is great imo.

    For me rn (not giving this too much thought) -
    Hybrid Theory > The Hunting Party > Meteora > A Thousand Suns > Minutes to Midnight > Living Things

    Are you satisfied?

    I'm not. I've only listened to the album twice but if I didn't know the other albums I would think of Linkin Park as an ordinary rock band, not that interesting. If this was their first album I would still be only into Muse, Green Day, Evanescence and Imagine Dragons.

    Satisfied by what? The hunting party? Very. It is one of their best albums in my opinion. Also, it adds to the variety in their discography.

    After I heard the first 2 songs I started hoping that it would get better.
    But it didn't.

    I was mistaken. I like the album way more now, I am listening to Rebellion right now, I love it!
