As the keen observer can already see, one click above and you can listen to the full LP from LP, The Hunting Party, a week before it hits stores next Tuesday. The free stream, of course, lets longtime fans like myself enjoy all of the previews in context and understand the group’s return to a core, more hardcore sound. The 45 minutes does indeed feature heavier sounds mixed in with your usual Mike Shinoda rap bars and Chester Bennington vocals. It’s a combo that I’m certainly never tired of and on first listen, the album is already indicative of the group’s progression goals.

It’s going to be hard for one single to top my love for “Until It’s Gone”, but as a whole, it’s a fluid album from beginning to end with plenty of tracks I’m looking forward to rewinding. One is “Final Masquerade”, a *Tibs Fav. below that also has a brand new lyric video to its name. In the album, this record follows an all-instrumental song that had me irrationally excited upon realization, considering the group’s first two albums had brilliant instrumental-only tracks towards their conclusion. The Hunting Party is no exception here. I’m only skeptical on the harder rock records that will grow with a couple of more listens for sure, but I’m not sure if they’ll stick. I think that’s just my taste for sounds less heavy in general. Nevertheless, listen above, below, and catch up with more LP on GWHH here.
