Linkin Park – ‘Lost In The Echo’

Radio-friendly videogame metal

Theoretically, with brostep and aggressive US stadium dance tracing a line of descent back to the dark days of new metal, this should be a prime moment for Linkin Park to seize their respect-dues. Theory, though, runs in horror from this radio-friendly videogame metal, dragged down by the horrifically overwrought vocals and clunky raps. “[i]Check the rep, yeah, you know mine well[/i]”. Indeed.
