Has anyone heard the new CD by these guys? It's called “Minutes to Midnight” I myself haven't fully heard it yet, but when I listened to some sample clips on their website I was extremely disappointed with the way it turned out. It strays from the “nu metal” label and embraces a more straight-forward and IMO generic rock sound. It just wasn't them.

So yeah, instead of buying their new CD the other day I instead purchased Meteora and both were basically at the same price. Take THAT mainstream music.

But all this is just the cynical opinion of a guy who knows nothing about music. What did you all think?

I like one of their songs which has no words called “Session”. In all of their other songs they ruin good music with their whiney voices and bad attempts at rap.

What I've heard on the radio, I've liked. But I used to love their stuff until they did that jay-z hook up.

I've got the CD and have been listening to it all day. Overall it's good, but I think Meteora lived up more to fans anticipation when it first came out than Minutes to midnight did.

Couple of my favorites Songs: ‘Wake’(A nice build up intro song) ‘Bleed it out’ (my favorite), What I've done(good song, anyone listening to the radio has heard it), Valentines Day.

The rest were were a little too… Uh, I dunno, they just didn't seem to have the same ‘Oomph!’

Track 7 ‘Hands Held High’ I think is pretty much a political song talking about the war in Iraq. It's a good song, it's this slow serious harmony about it.

Overall a good album, but definitly falls short of the quality of Meteora in my opinion.
