Completely agree with what user Edwarda85 said. After their best album they released this which felt safe and a bit bland. Still I can't say it's bad since it has a couple of nice songs.

After my personal favorite A Thousand Suns commercially flopped and left fans of their early work dumbfounded, Linkin Park was on the verge of extinction by lack of interest.

In Comes Living Things, a safe return to standard punchy riff rock with some mature screaming from Chester.

It's passable for the genre and at times feels like it is trying to serve two masters. The single Burn It Down doesn't sound like anything else on here. Makes you think it was a blatant attempt at a single on mainstream rock radio. It almost passes for hard pop.

The first track and Castle of Glass are highlights, if a bit repetitive.

It's good at what it does but Linkin Park trades in identity for survival; to stay a living thing as a band. And that is disappointing to me.

From Boxyno1
There last couple of albums have not been popular at all, but I personally felt they were good. This, however, is their first underwhelming record for me, not a particularly memorable effort, it's not 'bad', it's just about passable

I really do find it intolerable. The first tracks decent but after that it's just cringe worthy.
