Living Things is unsubtle, but it’s also quintessentially Linkin Park; albeit re-booted, regenerated, evolved.

50
NME

The heavy guitar thud of yore has been replaced by a new, heavy electronic thud, but that aside it’s largely the usual semi-hilarious histrionica to which we’ve become accustomed

A.V. Club

Rejecting the slow segues and unhurried ambience of A Thousand Suns, Living Things is trim and muscular, all pumping fists and bulging neck veins.

20
Consequence of Sound

When you can’t tell the difference between a Linkin Park track and something produced by a plebeian confusing dance beats for real drums, something has to give.

It's kinda funny if you consider that they said stuff like "finally felt like being in the right place" and released this mess. We already have Skrillex and he's more professional in loud electronic sound, thank you.

Replicating their previous work, but with more generic hooks has left a forgettable album in a heap of bland indie-sounding alternative.

Stronger album that " A Thousand Suns". They evolved in this album but again we werent with our mouths opened just as we expected.
