Marketing Description Limited Edition CD+DVD includes a 'making of the album' documentary & "The Catalyst" music video
We were not making an album.

For months, we'd been destroying and rebuilding our band. The experiments that resulted filled the studio hard drive with diverse, abstract sounds. Amorphous echoes, cacophonous samples, and handmade staccato merged into wandering, elusive melody. Each track felt like a hallucination.

We didn't know if any of those unorthodox ideas could be incorporated into a traditional album, but we knew we didn't want our next album to be predictable. Sitting together in the same studio where we made our first album, all six of us voiced a commitment to going out on a limb, to making something truly daring. We asked ourselves: were we all earnestly willing, more than ever before, to abandon the precepts of commercial ambition in pursuit of what we believe to be honest art?

The inclination to begin writing conventional songs for a conventional album came and went. The temptation to adjust our creative vision to fulfill expectations beyond our studio walls yielded to the audacious ambition of what he hoped to achieve as a band. The two years of making A Thousand Suns marked our exhilarating, surrealistic, and often challenging journey into the creative unknown.

On the eve of its completion, this body of work, assembled through unconscious inspiration and unmitigated exertion, has revealed to us notions both stirring and surprising. The album's personified imagery is neither dogma nor political premeditation. The emergent themes and metaphors illuminate a uniquely human story.

A Thousand Suns grapples with the personal cycle of pride, destruction, and regret. In life, like in dreams, this sequence is not always linear. And, sometimes, true remorse penetrates the devastating cycle. The hope, of course, springs from the notion that the possibility of change is born in our most harrowing moments.

Enjoy the music.
Linkin Park

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone - "With Rick Rubin co-producing, the band embraces not just synth pop clamor but also dancehall-style chants and U2's grandiosity."

Entertainment Weekly (p.139)
- "Linkin Park have outlasted the genre's brief '90s boom, consistently pulling digestible melodies from staticky storm clouds of sound." -- Grade: B

Billboard (p.40)
- "The structures give vocalists Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda plenty of emotive space -- and both deliver."


Linkin Park, formed in 1996, rose to international fame with their debut album, Hybrid Theory, which was certified Diamond by the RIAA in 2005 and multi-platinum in several other countries. Its following studio album, Meteora, continued the band's success, topping the Billboard 200’s album charts in 2003, and was followed by extensive touring and charity work around the world.

In 2003, MTV2 named Linkin Park the sixth greatest band of the music video era and the third best of the new millennium. Minutes to Midnight, which was released in 2007, topped the Billboard charts and had the third best debut week of any album that year.

Linkin Park has sold over 50 million albums worldwide and have won two Grammy Awards.
