Dropped Frames, Vol. 1 Tracklist:
Horrible! I am a huge LP fan and bought this album hoping to see what direction their music has taken since the tragic day of 7/20/2017. However any semi musically talented person could create this music(?) on their iPhone in 4 hours.
People leaving bad reviews or being super critical definitley did not tune into Mike's live streams. I loved spending everyday watching and listening to him creating these tracks. They are fun and unique-especially "Booty Down" ha! Gotta love when that track comes up! I really appreciate these tracks and that he made them in only a couple or so hours. Thanks for making this into an album!
In my opinion, he definitely has the talent to surpass the others in the electronica scene, but I don’t feel like the talent is being put to good use here. The singles are okay, but it’s hard to judge an album by a few singles. I honestly do give him a lot of credit for trying to keep his creativity flowing instead of quickly trying to find a replacement for Chester. For that, I’ll always respect the honor he and his band mates have. If he wants to put his mark on the electronica scene, I would love to see him add more rock flavor to it. But that just my opinion.
Screw this lack of care and quality for the interest of the listener, the track names are a whim of thought and don't inspire listening. It inspires heaving my guts out to see someone like MIKE SHINODA put out trash like this. I just lost nearly all my respect for you as an artist.
Great effort from Mike. Very different than the Linkin Park sound but still that echo of his band. Good news that they will try to make another record as Mike is capable of carrying on as lead vocalist, as heard here. Mike sets himself apart here and showcases his talents. I would enjoy being able to hear both “solo Mike” and a version of LP with Mike on vocals!
