    I understand what it's trying to say, but I feel like they could have done better with it.

    Living Things.jpg

    If you will excuse my google image searched tree and paint-added text, I think this picture really fits well with LIVING THINGS and what it means in the context of Linkin Park. With Hybrid Theory, "The Roots", the original idea was to blend the different musical aspects that each of the guys were into (trees take up various nutrients and water through different roots). Meteora functions as an extension of the roots, accepting the flow that was gathered up from the roots. With Minutes to Midnight, they started to branch out ("The Branches"), differentiating and striving for that fresh creative end. This came to fruition with A Thousand Suns, (the leaves/"Fruit" on the tree), that 48 minute musical journey chock-full of sweet cathartic goodness. From what it seems so far with what has been described about the new album, LIVING THINGS is the whole picture; each piece of the tree is equally important to the living thing. Obviously more can be said to further develop how the albums are the different parts, but all this talk of the different albums (and therefore styles that the band were at the time employing therein) being "better" than others really come down as trivial when you look at it as "the big picture" that LIVING THINGS is supposed to be.

    Going back to BURN IT DOWN: One thing's for certain, Chester's voice is the strongest it's ever been. I personally think the vocals in BID are on par with the old days and THAT impresses me the most. He sounds great.
