Linkin Park goes back to their roots on "The Hunting Party". Sure, it's the heaviest they've ever sounded but it's also kinda dated. Not to mention it suffers from mediocre writing, bad vocal mixing, underwhelming production and guest features that are barely recognizable.

Fav Tracks: Final Masquerade, Guilty All The Same, Until It's Gone, All For Nothing, Keys To The Kingdom

Least Fav Tracks: War, Drawbar

An album that if anything shows a clear shift in culture, the grammy award for rock is in the pre-show, while rock is not dead, it is no longer wanted, no longer listened to

Linkin Parks schizophrenic production should bear the full brunt of this, had an album such as this followed Metoera or even Minutes to Midnight, it would not be sitting in the mid 50's but the late 70's of critical reviews.

Linkin Park returns to their roots here but something is off. The writing is just weak with some rather dated songs. This project just feels trapped in 2001 bringing back all the nu-metal sounds that really haven't aged well.

Best Track: Rebellion
Worst Track: Guilty All The Same
