Linkin Park

A Thousand Suns Machine Shop/Warner Bros [Three stars]

“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 clamour 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.

Key Tracks: ‘Empty Spaces,’ ‘The Catalyst’
