living things (warner bros.)
Nu-metal stalwarts Linkin Park return with their fifth album, Living Things, a more personal effort than their previous releases. Teaming again with Rick Rubin, who's worked on all of their albums since Minutes to Midnight, they continue to refine their sound, bringing together all of their individual musical interests while using the songwriting instincts they've honed over the years to create something that's both new and distinctly Linkin Park.
After the more experimental A Thousand Suns, it seems like the band is ready incorporate all of the lessons learned on its sonic journeys into one cohesive sound, which fans can check out on the album's first single, Burn It Down, which was released early in 2012.
