    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.

    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.

  1. As a whole, Out of Ashes is a solid record and a fine opening volley for Bennington's solo work.
  2. 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
  3. The album is oddly inert, lacking both the brute force and big choruses that raised Linkin Park to rap-rock godhead status.
