Linkin Park. My favorite band of all time. A song that reminds me of one the coolest movies of all time.
This track is off of Minutes to Midnight, one of the lesser liked of the 5 LP albums (that of course, excluding tour albums and the collaboration EP with Jay-Z and the remix album). It was used as the theme song for the first Transformers movie, which was, in itself, incredible. Megan Fox.
The song really has nothing to do with Transformers, however. The song sends a message about how as humans, we need to restart. We need to show we are capable of doing better, because we’ve destroyed our beautiful planet, and hate and war and poverty are still prominent worldwide. The first step to a better world is to forgive and start fresh.
The song begins with a piano solo (which pleases me, as it is my instrument of choice), and it it goes heavy with drums for the rest of the song. There’s no rapping by Mike, but Chester’s fantastic voice more than makes up for it.
Enjoy the sounds of one of LP’s best songs.
