Very accurate and very funny, IMO:
A Thousand Suns by Linkin Park (Sept. 14 on Warner Bros.)
What it is: The first album since 2007 from the rather angry California rap-rock band who made the Miami Vice trailer so delightful.
What it sounds like: Angry bits, and then very pretty bits, and then very angry bits, and then some sort of rappy bits.
What it’s perfect for: Fighting with your parents and soundtracking your 9/11 truther videos
