Linkin Park: Minutes to Midnight

Sound — 10
Minutes to midnight rules! I have the songs off of it always stuck in my head. I really like how Linkin Park combined rap and rock together in this album like the song Bleed It Out for example. Minutes To Midnight showed a very good example of awesome Nu metal music. The creation of this album was very well done and I would really recommend for anyone to hear this CD!

Lyrics — 8
The lyrics of this album were explicit but very good. On the CD cover it said that the lyrics were explicit but in my opinion I don't think that they are the most explicit of all lyrics. I am very amazed by Linkin Park's lyrics because they fit the songs well and are done so well. My conclusion is that the lyrics of Minutes To Midnight were written with a lot of skill but at some points they are a little unfit.

Overall Impression — 10
In my opinion, I think that this album is the most unique album that Linkin park has created. The songs from this album that I find most impressive are Shadow of The Day, What I've Done, and No More Sorrow. I have nothing bad to say about Minutes To Midnight, I loved every bit of it. If it was stolen or lost then I would definetely buy it again. Way to go Linkin Park for making such a great album.

    With their first CD's 'Linkin Park' created a nice crossover sound. But the new album is far away from this sound. It's not bad...however i can't see and hear any 'Linkin Park' in this release. Well there was funny point in a interview. A LP member said something like: "The new album is far away from being Pop. This is metal!" Guys...can hear any metal?
    Okay, so i am EXTREMELY biased towards their side because hybrid theory the first album i ever bought and they introduced me to the rock genre and i've been a fan for a while yatta yatta yatta. this however, was a terribly disappointing album, especially considering how they put "so much time into it"...as a debut on a small label from an up and coming band this was a great album, but for being their third major album i expected more. the only good thing to come of this was what i've done (kindof) and qwerty (sortof) which wasn't even IN the actual album. next time they take a five year vacation, i expect a masterpiece, not...this.
