LP falls short yet again with "Living Things"
When LP released their much anticipated "A Thousand Suns" I loved the band that much that I didn't even preview it beforehand. It was a tradition that started when I heard Hybrid Theory for the first time in the darkness of my living room many years ago. I was on LP like they were the coolest band around & for a while we could arguably say they were. But after Meteora, Linkin Park went in a different direction. I understand that over time a band becomes eager to progress and evolve their sound to accommodate with the changes in their lives. Some succeed, but unfortunately LP in my opinion did not. They've turned too poppy & while I've enjoyed some of their ballads, too much of that gets old, which in turn has caused the band to execute their so called harder tracks in a much weaker fashion. I still love the band but this is the first time I will actually be selective of the tracks I purchase because as a full album i'm sadly disappointed.
