While “Minutes To Midnight” is a big stylistic change from “Hybrid Theory” and “Meteora”, the first half still has great and essential LP songs. Unfortunately, the second half leaves a lot to be desired.

Fav Tracks: What I’ve Done, Leave Out All The Rest, Shadow Of The Day, Bleed It Out, The Little Things Give You Away

Least Fav Track: In Between

How many times did I listen to this one ?

Faves: Leave Out All The Rest, Bleed It Out, Valentine's Day.
To me, it is their best work. They went softer here, for sure, but actually that other side of them really captivated me. And still does. Actually, my favorite songs are the slow ones, which is pretty weird coming from them, in a good way.

Standout tracks: "Valentine's Day", "In Pieces", "In Between", "Leave Out All The Rest", "Shadow Of The Day", "Hands Held High" and "What I've Done".
