"Linkin Park Fans Criticize New Album


Written by Eduardo Maia on January 23, 2017. Posted in Arts & Entertainment


Creating a solid career is not as easy as it seems for many artists. Throughout the years, there will always be good and bad moments. While some projects go wrong, new changes can be revolutionary.


In fact, I am not a huge rock fan, however, my childhood was marked by emotions and good feelings listening to Linkin Park songs.

The American rock band has conquered my adolescent ears since 2000, when they released their first album, Hybrid Theory. Since then, Linkin Park songs are on top of my playlists.


The bands sixth and latest album, Underground 15 released in 2015, was a disappointment because I was expecting a project full with new songs. Moreover, there are only 6 songs in this new album.


It was a target of critics around the world, and it made Linkin Park lovers feel like the band is not living a desirable moment in terms of production variety.


The latest album, Underground 15, was produced by the singer Mike Shinoda, leaving behind Don Gilmore, their previous producer. And this is one of the reasons fans have criticized the album.


Another reason is the new songs are less electronic than previous albums. One of the greatest characteristics of Linkin Park throughout its musical history, the powerful mixing of electronic effects with heavy rock, was not encountered in this 2015 album.


In past years, the band became famous and recognized by mixing nu metal with rap metal, a riveting combination which has conquered not only millions of fans around the world, but Billboard awards and international prizes.


In addition, their songs were always being played on radio stations in and outside the country.

Departing from its last album, The Hunting Party, we dont encounter a heavier metal in this latest album. Its indeed, a project totally different from what weve been used to see.


However, we have to acknowledge the audacity the band and its producers had at this time.


Changing ideas is natural and I guess that, despite critics, they wanted to innovate.


Although not everybody around the world like the new release, it is not a complete tragedy and actually contains some good songs. My favorite is Chance of Rain.


As I said before, every single band on the planet has its bad and good moments throughout a career. With Linkin Park, the story is no different.


Their latest album might not be satisfying all fans, but it is understandable that not all projects will be successful.


The band is currently back in the studio working on its next project. Time will tell what they have learned from feedback following Underground 15.


Leaving the critics aside, real Linkin Park fans will always support the band, no matter how bad they might sound in the current moment."

Lmao this isn't a well written article by any means but I can't help but feel like Geki was an influence on this somehow

Nah, not really. I know the difference between demos on LPU albums and the band's actual albums, I've been a fan for quite a while, etc.


However the amount of wrong information in this article is embarrassing. So many different wrong facts.
