A Thousand Suns

"We're broken people living on the loaded gun," Linkin Park cry over clattering keyboards on lead single "The Catalyst," which suggests a scream-y Depeche Mode. With Rick Rubin co-producing, the band embraces not just synth-pop clamor but also dancehall-style chants and U2's grandiosity. It's the sound of Linkin Park feeling their way toward a new identity, but their skill for melody is obvious. And on the rap-rock "Wretches and Kings," they sound like a killer Linkin Park tribute band.
