Minutes to Midnight [Explicit Lyrics]

( 95 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Linkin Park's debut sounded tense, nervous, and wiry -- rap-rock without the maliciousness that pulsed through Limp Bizkit. But it had been a full seven years between Hybrid Theory and Minutes to Midnight, and many fans who were getting their driver's licenses in 2000 were now leaving college and, along with it, adolescent angst. So Linkin Park jumped headfirst into maturity on Minutes to Midnight, which doesn't really rock, it broods. Still, the band demonstrates the chops they need to rock, and sound comfortable doing it.

    A welcome change

    Earlier albums of Linkin Park such as Hybrid Theory and Meteora focused on intense "Nu-Metal" songs which is a fancy genre for Punk/ Alternative Rock. <BR/><BR/>Minutes to Midnight retains some of these qualities but focuses more on a different side of the band. Soft ballads, more meaningful songs and an overall different experience is presented, but I must say I enjoyed it just as much as past albums. <BR/><BR/>I am looking forward to a mix of this type of Linkin Park and the Old Linkin Park on their Newer albums.

    This is a good album but its not what I personlly loved about Linkin Park. Most of this is to blame on the fact that they gave way to much thought into what Rick Ruben had to say (acting as there producer) this time around. I remember on the Fort Minor cd how Mike was talking about how the record execs wanted them to just be a "normal" rock and and they refused to sell out..... Loan and behold! LOL. 2 years later guess what. THEY SOLD OUT! Compleatly turning there back on there real fan baseand going even more for the masses with there "new" sound... Give me a break. Now like I said its not a bad cd but I cant recomend this to any real LP fan its just a major disappointment. Besides maybe if we dont buy it they might realized they messed up.

    Not Linkin Park!

    This is a good cd but it is not Linkin Park. This is more along the lines of a Chester Bennington solo Album. The thing that made LP who they are was the original rap to rock, back and forth vocals by Chester & Mike. That only exists on one track on this whole album. The album is good but it's just LP looking for a new sound, maybe this will be the last CD with Shinoda on it at all. If you expect to hear typical LP you won't get it on this album, however I still suggest buying this CD as it is a good rock album.

    Fantastic!!!!

    Who cares if this isn't the old Linkin Park. Yes the songs might be slow, like "Hands Held High", but the best songs are alot of the slow songs. You just need to listen and get the message they are sending.

    It's good to try new things

    If you are exclusively a metal-head, you can skip this one. If you want something that sounds like "Hybrid Theory," just listen to "Hybrid Theory" again. For the rest of us, this is a very nice album with some beautiful raps and a good variety of sounds. There are one or two places where it sounds like LP might be listening to a little too much U2, but overall it's still very good. "Hands Held High" is a major departure from what LP has done in the past, but it's a very elegant song. "Bleed It Out" is just plain awesome, no two ways about it. "What I've Done" is classic LP and a great song.

    Deffinite Difference

    This album in my eyes is not as good as the others but the messages in some of their new songs like WHAT IVE DONE and THE LITTLE THINGS GIVE YOU AWAY have a really meaning full messages in there.I believe these songs are their views on what is going on today in the world.NO MORE SORROW and BLEED IT OUT are some more awesome songs.

    Linkin Parkstreet Boys is definitely appropriate. This is an embarrassing CD. I feel like I'm still waiting for LP to release an album. Or maybe not -- these guys should have quit after Meteora.

    I think that this album just killed the momentum that Linkin Park had. I have been waiting for 4 years for a new Linkin Park CD and I bought this one out of faith, and my hopes were crushed. I understand that Linkin Park wanted a new sound, but they sounded like they were making a CD for a movie or Dawsons Creek! My wife even said that it had nothing to it, no energy, and the music sounded generic and dull. I have heard that Rap-Metal is dead, I understand that, but if something works, don't stop it! I think that this CD is allot like Limp Bizkut and his attempt on his third album. The album fell down, his fans were angry and he got back with the program with Results May Vary (still not as good as his earlier versions). I do not recommend this album to anyone.

    Not exactly the same as their other albums. It's a nice mix of some harder stuff with more introspective songs. Every song on this album is good some are amazing.

    They are still great!

    Each song has its own quality. Take time to listen to each songs. It's good to know that they are keeping their style, yet, as artists, willing to grow.

    Linkin Park is one of the best bands of all time! Their music is just great&i love it so much! Some of the best songs on the album are What I've Done, Given Up, & No More Sorrow. Even if you don't like rock music, just give this album a try&you might start to like rock :]

    ANOTHER SOLID ALBUM!!

    First, for everyone complaining about the "vulgar language" that LP had "stooped" to, either go buy the edited Wal-Mart edition or just don’t listen. Sometimes there is no better way to say what's on your mind. This is a great album that shows the versatility that a lot of bands lack in today's cookie-cutter, bubble gum world of music. It's refreshing when a band puts the music that it wants to play out there and says, "Here it is. If you like it, great. If not, oh well." LP continues to release solid albums, from Hybrid Theory to Meteora to Live in Texas. Even the album with Jay-Z was great. I agree with the earlier review I read, stop judging based on the past, judge it for what it is, a great album from a solid band.

    Linkin Park Fans!

    Don't judge this cd mearly on the samples and the first single "What I've Done". Once you actually buy the cd you start to realize that it's actually really good. I have to admit that the slow songs were the best but there is still more than enough songs to get your heart pumping and your head banging.

    What Happened?!?

    When I heard Linkin Park was coming out with a new CD I was sooo psyched, but I couldn't imagine the disappointment that would come. The best song on there is "What I've Done" and it's pretty good 'cause it sounds like the old Linkin Park. But this album just didn't have that oomph like their other albums Meteora and Hybrid Theory. And take notice of the fact that this album is like their first ever that needed a parental advisory. What the heck! They were doing great when they didnt need one and when they weren't using all the foul language. I thought they were one of the few bands I liked that didn't need to cuss to be good. I will always love linkin park, just not this album.

    I liked it

    This is the first Linkin Park cd that I've bought and I have no complaint's. I really like it and I can listen to it over & over. So I'm not comparing it to their old stuff because I never listened to their old stuff. So if your a true fan you should respect their work.
