While this new song from Linkin Park might be overtly monotheistic and spiritual, I think everyone can enjoy this video. It's full of smoky slow motion shots and has a nice dreamy surrealistic stormy mood, which hints at some sort of apocalyptic internal and communal struggle.
The music itself may take a few listens to grow on some people. It's full of intense energy and pain, but still with some chance of hope, redemption and healing. The style itself might be unfamiliar with some classic Linkin Park fans, which I can understand. But I'll let you guys decide.
took a while for me to warm up to it honestly. once it did.. i really started enjoying it. the said, i agree with the others. things have "changed" a lot with LP over the years. i definitely miss the soul of the early stuff.
I love people who think that bands will always remain the same, that their style isnt going to change, that the members aren't gonna grow up and be pissed off their entire lives. Wake the frack up. The only bands that sound the same are the ones who lack creativity and the ability to grow together. I personally like it the same way i liked their old stuff (which I still listen to when I am in "that mood") and would be disappointed if it sounded like their old stuff because it would be "just like their old stuff" or "it sounds like Hybrid Theory or Meteora." Minutes to Midnight sounded nothing like Hybrid so why would this? People say the same about NiN, do you people have any idea the damage it does to you on a mental level performing rage filled songs every night? Not to mention songs dealing with the worst fracking memories you have?
I've always liked LP, not been what some might call a "Fan" but hey I liked thier music, bought quite a few songs, but come on, wtf is this. I called up the radio station after they announced that "The Catalyst" was LP and i just said, BS, there is No Way this is LP. wtf happened to them? I'm REALLY hoping the rest of their new album is NO WHERE NEAR this pop song
