  • Summary: This is the debut album for Linkin Park's Chester Bennington's side project that includes members from Julian-K.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. Bennington and his Dead by Sunrise bandmates (who hail from the electronic rock band Julien-K) also display a deft touch with atmospherics and textures on tracks like "Too Late," "Give Me Your Name" and the goth-tinged "Let Down," among others
  2. As a whole, Out of Ashes is a solid record and a fine opening volley for Bennington's solo work.
  3. As a rock star side project, though, Dead by Sunrise has an unlikely fault--it's not nearly indulgent enough.
  4. The album is oddly inert, lacking both the brute force and big choruses that raised Linkin Park to rap-rock godhead status.
  5. Mr. Bennington strives to sound sympathetic, but after a song or two it’s clear that his only sympathy is for himself; there’s no humility, much less humor or proportion. As real as his prolonged adolescent angst is supposed to be, it quickly curdles into narcissism.

    This album is ok. Nothing special, but it's not absolute The songs are quite good and the sound is closer to rock than Linkin Park. However, nothing to do with Minutes To Midnight. Expand

    It's not a bad album. It just isn't anything spectacular. Pretty much more of the same from Linkin Park's 'Minutes to Midnight' and that wasn't very good either. Expand
