I think Linin Park's Latest Album "Minutes to Midnight" is not better than recent Albums.
Here's the reasons.

First, According to Wikipedia, Linkin Park's Genre is nu metal and rap rock.
But in this album Mike Shinoda, who's the rapper in Likin Park had Guitar solos rather than raping.

Second, In the Latest album, Likin Park had many quite songs, such as In Pieces, and In Between. I don't think those songs belong in the Genres of nu metal or rap rock.

I strongly disagree with your statement that Linkin Park's newest album "Minutes to Midnight" isn't as good as recent albuns. I am an avid fan of many different types of music ranging from rap, neo-soul, pop, country, pretty much everything. I was not a fan of Linkin Park or their type of music when I listened to "Minutes to Midnight," but once I heard the album, I was completely in love with them and the music. It even placed pretty high on my list of the top albums of the year (not that my list is important or anything lol).

Besides my personal feelings to the album, I feel that your argument about this album not following their genre is irrelevant to why it is a bad album. Many artists branch out from the genres in which they are placed. Beyonce and Jessica Simpson both recently stated they plan on making country albums. That is drastically different from their genres, more drastic than Linkin Park including "quiet songs" on their album.

More similarly, other nu metal bands such as Korn and Limp Bizkit have made songs that don't typically follow the nu metal genre. So by your standard, these songs/albums are bad or not as good as the one's that follow the traditional nu metal genre. I'm sure millions of fans would strongly disagree with that.

Linkin Park is probably some of the worst music available right now. As a matter of fact most music made in this country is. I suggest listening to a French group called "Justice". It's a breath of fresh air and a break from all the Linkin Park's and Britney Spearss'.
