Morning Music Notes – stream Linkin Park’s new album

Linkin Park streams new album online. Respect.
Linkin Park just keeps on going. Every time they release an album, I want to hate it… I mean, they’re a 1996 rap-rock-metal fusion band – I should HATE this! But, every time they release an album, I always listen, and always end up saying – damn it! That sounds really cool…
