Linkin Park is one of the most successful commercial rock bands of our generation and nothing compares to 'Hybrid Theory' and 'Meteora,' but on their new studio attempt, striving to go back to what made them great from the get-go, Linkin Park struggles to revive the edge of awesome rock music.

While I mostly review pop music and other pop culture related happenings, it's safe to say that while Linkin Park is a rock band, they've achieved both critical and commercial success and on pop radio music stations as well, so giving my take on an incredible band is obvious.

I personally don't care for the album and after listening to the entire album this morning, I immediately turned back on 'Meteora' and continued my drive into Boulder. A buddy of mine in Dallas, gave me his well tenured musical advice about the album. He feels they did a great job reverting back to their roots, which made them a hit worldwide, and at the same time incorporating their 2014 sound on the softer cuts. This is an album that will definitely please hardcore 'Hybrid Theory' fans as well as show the newer LP generation that this band is one who knows where they came from.

Just like '311,' another fantastic rock band that achieved commercial success in the late 90's and early 2000's, they're always critics slamming bands that return to their roots or try to maintain a certain musical status today. Whether or not you're a fan of these bands, each album is always going to strive to keep up with the new generation while focusing on sounds that we all know and love. 'The Hunting Party' doesn't suck, but it's not great either. Collin Kenney will probably hate on me for saying it, but whether or not I'm a rock expert, I do know good music and can safely argue an awesome album's lack of perfection.
