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The heavy guitar thud of yore has been replaced by a new, heavy electronic thud, but that aside it’s largely the usual semi-hilarious histrionica to which we’ve become accustomed

50
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.

Living Things is just mediocre. It feels like Linkin Park have become just a parody of themselves at this point. Everything on here feels outdated and just boring.

Best Track: Victimized
Worst Track: Burn It Down

“LIVING THINGS” teams Linkin Park up with producer Rick Rubin to create an electronic-sounding album that has some cool choruses and a great sense of melody. But it sometimes goes overboard with style over substance and the lyrics aren’t perfect.

Fav Tracks: CASTLE OF GLASS, SKIN TO BONE, I’LL BE GONE, BURN IT DOWN, LOST IN THE ECHO, POWERLESS

Least Fav Track: UNTIL IT BREAKS

This album for the most part is filler, but its a much closer attempt at their roots than their previous work.

"Living Things" in some moments has the best performance of band at all.

Imo their most straight-foward electronic/rock/hiphop effort, besides maybe Minutes To Midnight, but it's definitely not bad at all.
