    I don't agree with his thoughts on BURN IT DOWN at all so naturally I'll take his thoughts on the album with a grain of salt.

    I always read your posts in Ron Swanson voice :D

    Anyway, I don't take seriously what this guy wrote because he thought Burn It Down is a "timeless anthem". yeah right

    I learned how to keep my expectation down, and it proves to be quite useful at this time.

    Brutal is a shitty way to describe a song. Not looking too forward to Victimized as I'm more of a softer type when it comes to music. Comparing Powerless to a John Williams score raised my excitement over 9000 lol

    Just remember what Artist Direct said about A Thousand Suns
    "After A Thousand Suns, all rock 'n' roll will revolve around Linkin Park."

    Well, I like ATS a lot, but come on... I just take this article for the track description.

    Music reviews are the most pointless reviews ever because music is so opinion based. Like a really popular website can hate a really good song while another likes it. It's not like reviewing a game or a movie. It depends on the sounds you like.

    How is it any different? Couldn't you just say a film depends on the style or genre you like? Some people prefer fighting games over RPGs?

    There's objectivity and subjectivity in all art.

    I imagined Victimized to be similar to My Suffering by Dead By Sunrise, and it seems like it's not even that far from it. But, I don't know if I should believe it's "their heaviest track ever", this guy just might be over-reacting. Nice review, though.

    The only disappointing part to me is "This time I finally let you go" lyrics part. As I stated a month ago, I hoped they wouldn't say this sentence "let it go" for a while, as it's soooo over-repeated, more than the word "pain" by now.
    Also, so much praising for BID, which I certainly like but not with the enthusiasm they show off here.
    Once again, I think they just are fans of the band too, lacks of objectivity IMO. The last sentence says it all, is almost like THEY KNOW the next album will be a sparkling wonder.
    I rarely was so intrigued by an album as with LIVING THINGS, but I think the reviews keeps being over-emphasized and somehow I don't like them.

    But saying you adore Mike more and more with each Linkin Park album release? We don't take kindly to that kind of talk on this Joe Hahn fansite. ;)

    You don't understand; this time, Shinoda's finally replacing old, rusty spanner with a new one!

    I think it was a damn good idea to pre-order the album :) ..I´m so freakin hyped! o_O... yeah and I think that the review can´t be that inaccurate if the guys posted it on FB saying its a great review. One way or the other the album is going to be awesome I just know it. I have faith in the guys :)

    Well, it is great ... if, by "great", you mean "overwhelmingly positive".
