LINKIN PARK Living Things (Warner [...].
LINKIN PARK Living Things (Warner Brothers) * STATESIDE rockers Linkin Park return with their fifth studio album, co-produced by Mike Shinoda and Rick Rubin, who helmed the band's previous sets Minutes To Midnight and A Thousand Suns. Described as their most personal to date, Shinoda, Chester Bennington, Rob Bourdon, Brad Delson, Dave 'Phoenix' Farrell and Joe Hahn stomp over familiar territory, particularly on opener Lost In The Echo, In My Remains (which has elements of Numb) and Burn It Down. There's a change of direction, however, on Castle Of Glass and the wintry Roads Untravelled. It ends in slow-burner Powerless, a stadium anthem in best Linkin Park style. JD
