The sheer awe of this album is no theory
Each week leading up to the release of Linkin Park’s fifth album, Living Things, I’ll be posting one review each week of each of their albums leading up to their fifth on June 22. Anyways, you’ll want me to begin reviewing their first album.
During the late 90′s and early 00′s, nu-metal was what ruled the radio-waves. Linkin Park was one of the most popular bands of this genre, and easily the most successful with this album having sold 24 million copies worldwide. It’s easy to see why. With the simplicity of Mike Shinoda’s rapping style and the growling of Chester Bennington, they were and still are, a force to be reckoned with.
