    I've been a huge Linkin Park fan since they first started and im not gonna lie that this album threw me off a little. Yes it doesnt sound like their previous albums but that's b/c they wanted to go in a new direction and reinvent their sound which they did and I congradulate them for a job well done. The first time u listen to the album all the way through, you think "That was ok", but the more you listen to it the better it gets and then after about 5-8 listens through you're loving it! All the songs are amazing and lyrically some of the best they have ever written. Even if you dont pick it up you at least need to hear "Given Up", "No More Sorrow", "Valentine's Day", and "Leave Out All The Rest" as those are some of the best songs off the album. By now you have heard "What I've Done" and "Bleed It Out" and those are good songs, but they dont sum up the album. Just buy it and i guarentee that you will like if not now then later! P.S...sorry for any spelling mistakes

    disappointed

    I have been supporting LP for a long time, probably from 2002 to 2008 maybe, I was extremely exited for this album to come out, after i bought it, i didn't care about the PA thing...i figured that it was going to be PA...but after I bought it, I realized that LP changed a lot, no more artwork, ext...This album was probably good for me for about two months after it was released (i bought it the day it was released)...I'm going to leave some things out, because it could get kind of intense...but because of this album it mad me start to resist LP, and by the beginning 2009 or the end of 2008 i considered myself as a former LP fan after i realized that this may be LP new genre and new style. if this doesn't make sense, sorry, but what i was basically saying: was that i was very excited about it, i bought it, then fell out of the Underground of LP, and soon became a one of the Former fans of LP...

    Minutes To Midnight

    As a longtime fan of Linkin Park, I'd say that they have outdone themselves completly with their lastest album, Minutes To Midnight. Although it's not what you would expect from the band and cannot be compared to past material, putting aside what you already know the band to sound like allows you to see how greatly they've evolved. They have made so many changes in their music, the genres they explored, and even by having frontman Mike Shinoda sing on the album. But they are consistant with their relatable lyrics and never-before heard riffs. If you are a Linkin Park fan or are looking to browse for other artists, either way you should definitely buy this album.

    A Great Album

    In "Minutes to Midnight," Linkin Park has adapted to fit the times. In their old albums, they were all about mixing rap with metal. In this album, they're much more mainstream. A great example of this is the hit single, "What I've Done." A great song, but different from what they used to do. For the most part, it'll be disappointing to long-time fans of the group, but it's a great album for a newcomer to this band. For those oldtimers, though, there's some hope. "Hands Held High" is a reminder of songs past; the song is a little softer, but there's enough rapping in there to make any original fan happy.

    I'm not really a LP fan. Basically only knowing one song, their most famous, I kinda "ehh" when new music of theirs was released. This changed when Bleed it out came out. A song with a good beat, and the blur of curse words made me curious. Chester's passing is a sad moment for music, and for his family.

    A good album from Linkin Park especially trying to experiment on different sounds. It shows how much Linkin Park matured after 7 years. I enjoyed listening to it from start to finish. Favorite Tracks: Given Up, Leave Out All the Rest, Bleed It Out, Shadow of the Day, In Pieces, The Little Things Give You Away Least Favorite Tracks: Valentine's Day, In Between

    This album is GREAT in many ways. It has very influenced music, and doesn't feel fake... well, mostly. My biggest complaint is that In Between just isn't Mike... at all... if you want to hear him REALLY sing, then go find No Roads Left. All in all, this finally breaks free of the last albums (Reanimation being in its own category) and brings with it amazing music. After hearing all of their albums a few hundred times, this is DEFINATELY my favorite.

    Let me just say that this is a great compilation! Linkin Park took a slightly more mellow stance for this album, but each and every song is so powerful! In listening, you can tell that this music is coming straight from the heart. They poured a lot into these songs, and that is exactly what you will get as the listener. At just over 43 minutes, the album is a bit on the shorter side, but I don't think that takes anything away from it. Great music!

    Amazing Album

    Posted

    This is the first Linkin Park album where they actually use profanity. Previously they had a genre of music that was suitable for all age groups. I think this use of adult language is excusable given the sparse use in comparison with most other popular artists of their genre. The album touches on a variety of subject matter including current event such as the war in Iraq. I haven't stopped playing this album since I bought it the day it came out.

    I have been listening to linkin park for many years and i am glad that they came out with a new album. I was a big fan of hybrid theory and meteora which were both amazing albums. When i heard that they had a new album coming out i was stoked. Even though some of their songs were a lot softer compared to their older stuff it was still really good. this review is a little late but oh well

    Worst album ever bought!

    I loved Hybrid Theory! The whole thing! Half the second album was really good! But this new album I think is gonna take a header! Its the worst album Linkin Park ever made! There is NO good songs on it! Its only my opinion but I think they just slaped this together to hurry with another album. I feel completly ripped off! This minutes to midnight is minutes to the dumpster!

    Lesser Linkin Park

    supahgrandpoobahnator

    The shame of this album is that it's a new direction for Linkin Park that really WORKS on about 4 of the tracks, but the other 8 are so forgettable and lame that it's hard to get too hot and bothered over it. I definitely recommend it to LP fans, if just for the 4 songs that are really hot, but casual rock fans (or recovering rap rock junkies) might not be too impressed.

    A MUST Have!

    LP is never dissapointing! Yet another MUST have album to add to your collection. Just when you thought they were done; Out comes another hit with a slight twist from their previous albums which truely shows their genius! The lyrics are amazing, the combination of hard hitting fist throwing with softer relatible ballad-like songs, just makes you want to hit repeat!!!

    This is definitely a CD to have in your collection! Though this is not the Linkin Park (LP) that we all remember, they do a great job putting together a CD with tracks that everyone will love! "Shadow of the Day" (#5) is just one of the most beautiful sounding songs with a very simple message. Buy this CD, you are guaranteed to like at least 3 songs!

    worst album yet

    I understand having slower songs on albums of rock bands, but when most are slow (over half) and there only 4 rocking songs? Hello? Especially when their previous albums rocked. Metalicca slowed down a lot, but kept their rocking attitude throughout. If you are willing to pay for a full album for 4 good songs, then go for this one.

    I thought the minutes to midnight album was great. It's very fun to listen to and it is really good music. I hope whoever buys this CD enjoys it because it is worth the money. It's good do listen to while driving and makes the time go by quicker too. Linkin Park has always had great music, and this CD just adds to the collection.

    I feel this album is looked over because hybrid theory and meteors were so big. Also, they tried new things on this record they've never done. Chesters vocals cannot be compared and the rest of the band is in top form for this album!

    Best Linkin Park CD Yet

    Posted
    pinkpanther

    I think this is the best CD they've put out so far. On some of their other cd's all of the songs sounded the same but on this one they are all different and all have a different style. It has some profanity but honestly, it didnt bug me and i'm not really one that likes profanity at all. But I love this cd!

    This is my favorite CD out of all of the Linkin Park CDs. For those of you who don't like Linkin Park because they're music is too "hardcore", this CD is a whole different story. Songs including "Shadow of the Day" in this album are softer, but still great music! I highly recommend you buy this album!
