‘A Thousand Suns’ | Linkin Park
The band rarely touches on their once-great aptness for heavy guitars, yelling and angst-filled rapping. Lead singer Chester Bennington used to belt out powerful, melodic vocals, but now his voice only chants disgusting raps. It’s enough to sadden even a die-hard Linkin Park fan—if there are any left. The album’s only redeeming quality is that it is at least trying to be creative. But of course, the band overdoes it. “A Thousand Suns” is experimental pop at its worst, and it isn’t worth the money.
