"This is more of a song-based record," rapper-multi-instrumentalist Mike Shinoda says of the follow-up to 2010's polarizing A Thousand Suns. "We wanted to make something more personal." Co-produced by Shinoda and longtime collaborator Rick Rubin, the material is the band's most powerful since its megahit 2000 debut. On "Lost in the Echo," Shinoda reclaims his MC roots, and the anthem "Burn It Down" showcases Shinoda and Chester Bennington's call-and-response – all over electro grooves.
