Linkin Park – A Thousand Suns

I’ve been listening to this album for 2 weeks now and I can’t stop. This is LP’s first concept album (if you’re not familiar with that, it means that there is a common thread through out the album, and that the album stands as a whole and not as individual songs.) This band is not a Christian band by any means, but they do write thoughtful, and thought-provoking lyrics, and out of any band I listen too (there really aren’t many) this band, in the secular world at least, seems to have the greatest understanding of our sin nature and it’s consequences. The idea of the album is to experience the ups and downs of life, mistakes made, redemption found and hope and love.

In my opinion this is their best album. They seem to be the most creative in this album than any other, and their lyrics are, well thoughtful and thought-provoking. I would recommend this album to just about anyone. There are a few swear words here and there, and if that bothers you get the clean version. This album finds a band who is seeking to find the answers to the brokenness of the world, and in the end they seem to find hope. Their final song the messenger talks about the importance of love in our life, “Love keeps us kind”.
