Descripción del producto
"Como ya ocurriera con su anterior trabajo, `Minutes To Midnight', la banda ha escogido a Rick Rubin para que llevase a cabo la producción del disco junto al vocalista `Mike Shinoda'.
Según el grupo en este nuevo proyecto los que ya conocen a la banda van a notar un cambio en el sonido, algo que no habían utilizado hasta la fecha. ""Hemos trabajado con Rick Rubin porque el entiende nuestra visión y ha capturado este nuevo sonido. No queríamos que nuestro próximo disco fuera predecible. Mientras nos sentábamos juntos en el mismo estudio donde hicimos nuestro primer trabajo, los seis nos comprometimos a aventurarnos a hacer algo realmente atrevido""."

Trading in the undeniable hooks and chunky guitar riffs that populated their earlier albums for synthesizers and hip-hop beats, "A Thousand Suns" is certainly a tough cookie to swallow. While the tasty licks of guitar-God Brad Delson (sarcasm) will forever be missed, the band more than makes up for it in ample amounts of ambience. A semi-concept album, "A Thousand Suns" brings to mind a more angsty version of "Year Zero," with its themes of war and humanity. You may wonder if a band like Linkin Park is up to the task of making such a bold artistic statement, but surprisingly enough, they pull it off rather competently. With Rick Rubin once again serving as co-producer, the band gives the set a centralized theme and sound, even if the songs themselves wander down different paths. Sure, if you strip away the various spoken word and instrumental interludes that fill out the record, you're only left with nine full-length songs, but within these tracks, the band runs the gamut from hip-hop and electronica to pop and even progressive. Somehow though, these songs manage to sound alien when placed outside of their element, thus ensuring that "A Thousand Suns" is an album that can only be appreciated in its proper form, from front to back.
While "A Thousand Suns" may not be exactly what everyone wants from Linkin Park, at the end of the day, no one can accuse them of repeating themselves or recording the same album twice. At this point in their career, it would be all too easy to rest on their laurels and keep churning out "One Step Closer" clones. It's an album that lacks commercial edge and takes more than a few listens to fully sink in, but when approached with an open mind, it reveals itself as one of the band's most inspiring and definitive pieces of music. If you're hoping to get your white-boy angst on with this record, you may feel Linkin Park owe you a thousand apologies for "A Thousand Suns," but in the end, they don't, and really, you should have grown out of it by now.
This album had to grow on me, partly because there is a serious message here which needs to be examined by those who listen to it. Each song by itself has a very simple meaning, but when put together, there are many hints about war of the past and present, where we might be headed as people, and there is a personal significance to some of the songs, like "Iridescent". If you know anything about World War II and Mike Shinoda's family, then, you can understand the vibe of this song.
The mixing, the instruments used, and the vocals are perfectly laid out, and compliment each song very well. Songs like Burning in the Skies and Waiting for the End are not hot radio tracks, they are above and beyond typical music. They have brought the art back to music, to put it simply. There are some songs that I like more than others, but that is partly due to my musical preference. Most fellow fans I have spoken to, prefer the songs that I am less impressed with. The album might seem a bit strange to some listeners, because it has a 1960's feel to it in some places, while being very "now". Simply put, you can play The Messenger before or after anything by The Beatles, and they will sound very, very good together.
I don't recommend this album to kids or teens, not because of the swearing but because, if you were born after 1990, you likely won't understand this album, because chances are you haven't had the life experiences to get it all.
If you just want to hear Hybrid Theory or Meteora, then, don't buy this. The band members were in their mid twenties when they wrote Hybrid Theory, and actually two or three years younger than I am right now. A person's music interests, personal interests and ideas can change over the course of ten years. We, as artists, are always learning, and searching for new tools to create within our favorite art form. So, if you hate this album because it doesn't sound like a 12 year old record, then, you aren't truly listening to it.
