CD Review: Linkin Park - 'The Hunting Party' (Warner Bros.)

June 17th, 2014 5:51pm EDT
CD Review: Linkin Park - 'The Hunting Party' (Warner Bros.)
First things first, The Hunting Party is not Hybrid Theory. While it may find the band at their heaviest since 2003’s Meteora, it’s still an unfair comparison as they are two entirely different records indicative of two entirely different time periods.
