Linkin Park: Living Things; CD REVIEWS.

Byline: KATHERINE MONTGOMERY

INITIALLY I was struck by the chirpy repetitiveness of Linkin Park's new album, Living Things. The repetitive rhythm was annoying and almost maddening until it eventually became hypnotising and intriguing.

It seems that this album is stuck between two genres of rock and rap. Combining these two genres makes the music and its purpose confused and hard to interpret. It's not exactly music you would listen to at a party, or something you would sing along to in the comfort of your own house. I am strangely drawn towards the songs and this album has really got me thinking and I am sure many other people have split opinions over the album. Perhaps after all, the album artwork.
