09:29 am - I'm sure you've heard praise for this album by now...
already wrote a very nice review of the new Linken Park album, Meteora. I feel like writing my own, though we both agree quite heavilly about the album as a whole.
For those with ADHD like me... it rocks, go take your Ritalin and enjoy the music. :-)
I always liked the approach Rage Against The Machine took with their music... but I despised their executation. Too grating, trying to force the thought down your throat, almost going out of their way to add barbs and burrs to scratch one's throat on the way down.
Much like them, Linken Park has a split ensemble. One vocalist is a very fine-grade rapper, like Coolie he's easy on the ears and able to get his message thumping into your ears. The other vocals are somewhere between sung and screamed, a gritty, digging screech that still keeps that slick feeling, piercing like Tori Amos can be but still smooth at the same time.
So, if you see the album, snag it. Hell, just get the tracks first, give them a listen and see if you like it before ya' buy, but definately give it a chance if you're a fan of any older Linken Park, any Rage Against the Machine, or Evanescence as a newcomer that bears similarities, though the latter blends closer to Tori Amos with the vocals.1 comment
