Wretches and Kings sounds so Reanimation-ish it's ridiculous. Will listen to the album just for the sake of pleasing (Or displeasing) the inner 13-year old me.
EDIT: Listening to the album IRT
First two tracks were somewhat WTF, but they were cool.
Burning in the Skies: Oh look, it's What I've Done Part III.
When they come for me: Linkin Park does Rattamahatta w/Rap and without Growls or distorted guitars.
Robot Boy: Linkin Park does Backstreet Boys.
Jornada Del Muerto: Linkin Park hace voces entrecortadas por más o menos un minuto y medio con un fondo electrónico que casi parece de disco. Meh.
Waiting for (In) the End: Linkin Park delivers a little late their submission for the South Africa 2010 World Cup Anthem Contest.
But seriously, it's a good song. Poppy, but good. Probably an upcoming single.
Blackout: This is the time that I realize it took Linkin Park 9 tracks to get Chester screaming. This song is weird. Mike sings and Chester raps in some parts of the song. There are too much keyboards for me and it sucks a lot in the beginning. Another probable single.
Wretches and Kings: Reanimation. That is all.
Wisdom, Justice and Love: ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US. Also seems that they liked the Transformers voices.
Iridescent: Oh look, it's Leave out all the Rest Part II.
Fallout: OK CAN YOU STOP THE ELECTRIC VOICES YOU DAFT PUNK WANNABES THEY ARE GETTING FUCKING ANNOYING
The Catalyst: This seems to be the main song of the whole concept album, the song that the whole album directs to, the main theme. And it sucks. I still think it would be good if it wasn't for all that electronic fodder and if it had more rockish tunes and SOME REAL DRUMS. By the way I think this album is about some guys starting a revolution, the leader has a depression, he gets better, and starts a mutiny. He gets killed in it or something but they win.
The Messenger: Linkin Park does a ballad that sounds like Theory of a Deadman or something. I know this would eventually happen. To be honest it doesn't sound bad, but please. I mean, please. You made a whole album with innovative stuff and end it with... This?
Well that's pretty much it. It was almost exactly what I expected it to be. Don't hate it, don't like it that much. It exists, and by the end of the Messenger I realize I just don't give a fuck. Innovative, sure, but... Well... Meh. Meh it's the exact expression of how I feel about this album.
