I really like Linkin Park, and it's the one band that's different from my normal music.
I think I love the lyrics the most, they always mean something, and the composition is always top notch. They also do their own album art, which will always deserve praise because there are few artists that diverge from just their music. The album art is almost always just used to look pretty, but Linkin Park thinks otherwise.
They also strive to keep evolving which is something respectable, they don't go with what's popular, they do what they want to do, and that's evidently created them a massive fanbase.
Their music always starts with a big bang, and I'm a person of simple pleasures, I can't deny how epic it sounds when the intro finally picks up into the lyrics. I think Breaking the Habit has the best hold for me music composition wise. There isn't necessarily a big "bang," but the guitar jumps in right when you hear this noise that sounds like something "approaching."
Lyrics wise, I love In Pieces The lyrics are so highly contradictory, it feels like it stings. The truth about how hypocritical we can be in love, and how in the end it just messes everything up.
Thus ends my rave for Linkin Park. XD
