Linkin Park General Discussion

Postby Jaba » Aug 9th, '14, 04:18

Just an area to discuss LP. Seems like a lot of people like them on this site.

I'll start by saying I think Minutes To Midnight is very underrated. Doesn't really have a bad song on it. And it was a very creative album for them since their first 2 were very different than this one. Also this album has slow and less rock songs but also has it good fair share of heavy songs. What you guys think?

inb4 the usuals assault this thread :laughing:

You know, honestly, I initially did not like Minutes to Midnight and considered it the worst Linkin Park album. I got into Linkin Park for how they blend genres of music and on MtM they dropped that in favor of seperating their sounds and focusing on straight up Rock or (rare) straight up rap, and I didn't like. However over the years it's mature sound has grown on me.

It's sort of a backwards evolution in that way with me and Meteora, though. Of course Hybrid Theory and Meteora got me into the band and I held both albums very highly but over time I've starter to realize Meteora for the clunky nonsense metal album and sound that it is. Not saying it's a bad album, but to me it's quality has sorta flattened in a way.

M2M may be my second fav LP album. Really good IMO. I love the metalish songs. and I like their soft apporach on In Pieces, In Between, and Valentines Day/Hands Held High

'In Between' works perfectly where it is. And as good 'Across The Line' and 'No Roads Left' are, they don't sound quite finished. Minutes tracklisting was done the way it was for the album to constantly change between energetic tracks and calmer tracks, and those two would just not fit. They're too... middle of the road.

One of the reasons I don't like Minutes to Midnight as much (even though as I stated it has grown on me over the years) is because it basically took the reasons why I first got into Linkin Park, the blending of genres, sounds, music, and did the opposite. Coming straight off the rap-rock and metal-hiphop trains, they pretty much decided to split it up and do one at a time, primarily focusing on the rock part. That's why on MtM instead of a blending you have extremes in the rock genre and very minimal Mike/Rapping. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it just didn't appeal as much to me at the time. They pretty much made their first and only 'rock' record. (Their newest one sorta counts)

ATS is a different story, it completely flips the script and changes what is perceived to be the bands sound and makes it irrelevant, lol.

Sweet man nice to hear. It really is a richer music experience that doesn't appeal to everyone.

There are 13 LPU CDs of unreleased shit for you to hear, Jaba. Have fun. But here are some of my favorites that don't appear on studio albums: Stick and Move, High Voltage, My December, A.06, Halo, What We Don't Know, Across The Line, No Roads Left, Asbestos, Debris, Homecoming, Basquiat, Pretend To Be, I Have Not Begun, Primo, Holding Company and Hemispheres. It's a great hour or two of music to listen to. Some of it is instrumental, some of it isn't. I Have Not Begun is probably the most confident Shinoda has ever been on the mic, Primo is the epic demo of I'll Be Gone, Debris is an incredibly powerful track and Holding Company is a Lost In The Echo demo that's about the most beautiful thing ever.

Also, you're in for a treat with the A Thousand Suns booklet. It's amazing.

Okay, I've been following this band since 2000, and I can tell you that they have undergone a lot of changes over the years, both musically and mentally. They changed their style up on Midnight, and people didn't like it. I liked it, but it did sound different from Meteora. Around that time, it felt like music was dying somehow; well, it really wasn't, but it seemed like that due to the fact that a lot of horrible acts were blowing up and stealing the veterans' thunder. They experimented more with electronic music and more ambient-based musical elements on Suns, and people really hated that, although I thought the record was okay. I feel like Living Things was a return to form and their latest album is a near classic.

But that's just how I see things. Other people may feel differently and have a different opinion on the newer albums, which is fine.

Linkin Park has always released some terrific music in my opinion. Still remembering hearing In The End for the first time, great track.

That's about it though


Their two best albums, imo.

Also, complete opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to LP's music. Neat.
