Good song, but, sorry, a pathetic music video.

Linkin Park released a music video for its new single “Burning in the Skies”. The track is one of the few sound and solid songs from A Thousand Suns. It’s also most compelling live. The music video is a disaster mainly because it leaves the band out of the picture, and because it largely relies on a trite, domestic dispute synopsis. Linkin Park can achieve a better form of art.

A fine collection of rap/electronic/rock that unfortunately disappoints when compared to its predecessor.

If the band simply played their music in a naked and honest fashion, sans all the superfluous wining and dining, they would be a top live act instead of merely above average.
