"the catalyst" new song by Linkin Park

I noticed that many Linkin Park fans are angry because the new song "the catalyst" does not sound like the old ones.

Here is the new song for the ones who don't know it:


What do you think?
Is it good or bad?!

    i like this song.

    i think it's not bad that it sounds different from the older ones.
    and it is kind of good to hear something new from them. it's good to see that they try new things and don't do the same kind of music over and over again.

    i am excited to listen to the new album and i hope there are more good songs like that.

    I was kinda hoping there new album would go back to there older stuff after minutes to midnight, it was total shit bar a few songs.

    But even though there leaving there older stuff, this is sounding hopeful. Good song

    I'm not a big Linkin Park guy, but to be completely objective, this seems to be their most "musical" piece. Not that the rest of their stuff isn't musical, I'm not trying to bash them. What I mean is that, despite the fairly standard techno beat and the repetitious lyricism, they are employing a fair bit of syncopation and some interesting rhythmic tricks. It's entertaining to listen to thanks to that, but it still really isn't my thing : )

    I guess it would be my favorite Linkin Park output to date, but still not something I would seek out myself to listen to.

    I think this is a great song. The thing with alienated fans, people don't realize bands have human members, who grow older mentally so of course it'll change. Just embrace it as a new album, not hate it as a change. Besides, who wants to hear the same stuff for years?

    Also, I heard about this for the military training show on discovery. Holler if it was you too.
