iTunes Review

Linkin Park returns to its roots on LIVING THINGS, the band’s fifth album. The first single, “BURN IT DOWN,” gives a hint with expansive guitar, shouted choruses, a rap from Mike Shinoda, and Chester Bennington’s naked vulnerability encased in a throat-shredding howl. LP fans craving the chemistry of Hybrid Theory and Meteora should immediately take to LIVING THINGS.

Customer Reviews


I just can't get into this album. Minutes to Midnight was better than this and that is saying a lot. iTunes says that "LP fans craving the chemistry of Hybrid Theory and Meteora should immediately take to LIVING THINGS", well they couldn't be more off on their review. This album has nothing to do with those two albums. I've been a die hard LP fan for years, and this is by far one of the most dissapointing albums I have ever heard from them. It's safe to say that LP has lost their touch. I know that some people are going to say that they are going in a new direction and trying new things, but they've been "trying new things" for three albums now and it hasn't worked. This will be the last album I will buy from them. LP, you have lost yet another fan....


Thank you soooo much. I needed this. I met these guys in a little neighbor hood hole in the wall bar in Cedar Rapids Iowa while on tour with KMK and Rehab before Hybrid Theory came out. They gave me a cassette tape with a couple of their songs on it, and I was blown away. Heck that was like 10 or more years ago. Back then they had it. And once again they are showing that they have true RAW TALENT. They made another album that feels like it came to them naturally. People are going to be happy to say Linkin Park is back.


Linkin Park is and has always been one of the most innovative and amazingly consistent bands of the 21st century. They have a unique sound that can't be duplicated or replaced. Just like you can't have The Beatles without John and George, you can't have LP without Chester and Mike singing and rapping side by side. And with "Living Things", the band has finally returned to their original sound, the one we've come to know and love from their cherished "Hybrid Theory" and "Meteora" days. "Burn It Down", the lead single, is an explosive track that showcases everything that makes LP so great (from the intense guitar riffs to Chester's throat-shredding howl), while songs like the bittersweet "I'll Be Gone" deftly display the vulnerable side of the band. One of my personal favorites off the album is "Lies Greed Misery", a techno-heavy track with a monstrous chorus and some terrific verses from Mike. The rest of the songs, although not quite as memorable, are still well worth listening to in their entirety. As a whole, this album is absolutely fantastic in its production, and even a bit nostalgic. After two experimental records, it's awesome to see LP going back to their old sound again and doing what they do best: making energetic alternative rap-rock music with heavy electronic beats and powerful, engaging lyrics. I might have to listen to it a few more times just to get familiar with the tracks, but overall, I'm more than impressed with "Living Things". It's loud, it's intense, it's thought-provoking, it's Linkin Park at their cataclysmic best. Unless you hate good music, I full-heartedly recommend buying this incredible new record. Even if you aren't the biggest LP fan, I still suggest giving it a chance. Trust me, once you press play, you're not gonna want to press stop.

Although rooted in alternative metal, Linkin Park became one of the most successful acts of the 2000s by welcoming elements of hip-hop, modern rock, and atmospheric electronica into their music. The band's rise was indebted to the aggressive rap-rock movement made popular by the likes of Korn and Limp Bizkit, a movement that paired grunge's alienation with a bold, buzzing soundtrack. Linkin Park added a unique spin to that formula, however, focusing as much on the vocal interplay between singer Chester...
