What a fucking great album!
Sorry for the bad English, I'm from Argentina.
Maybe it's just for the affection I have for this band (it was the first rock band that really fascinated me, the first song of them I heard was 'In the end' when I was 6 years old), but seriously, it's one of the best albums I heard in my life. It is so pure and so powerful that for me it's always the best album of the band.
A collection of 12 songs that any rocker should know, like it or not. His style is one of the best ever experienced. Mergers, provided by Mike rap, rock, and metal parts provided by Chester, Brad, Scott and Rob and electronic effects of the great Mr. Hahn. I am a really open-minded listener, but I do not really like metal, except for heavier songs like One Step Closer
, but rather, a heavy rock/rap fusion.
Okay, from an objective point of view I must make the following revision. Music: 9, is a unique fusion of rap, rock and industrial, with some influence of alternative metal. Lyrics: 9, very personal and somewhat dark, considering that most of the album is written by singer Chester Bennington about his personal experiences as a youth. Originality: 10, this is something you do not see every day, this album has a deserved place in the list 84 'The 200 albums that every music lover should have'.
Yes, for people who want things that are not usually seen in the metal and not those metalheads who think that modern bands are crap. highly Recommended.
