In an interview, lead singer Chester Bennington explained that the album is "a mix of punkclassic rockand hip-hop standards" and that " Rick has brought more of a stripped down, classic-rock and hip-hop kind Shadow Of The Day - Linkin Park - Minutes To Midnight feel.
In another interview, Bennington stated: "This time around, Mike Shinoda is singing a lot more. It may seem like he's not on the record, but he's doing a lot of the harmonies. He also sings a couple of songs alone. We're presenting ourselves in a different way. The band decided not to use the effect for the solo in that song and instead ended up creating "No More Sorrow" out of the effect.
In " Given Up ", he jingles the keys that are heard while several clap sounds are overlaid in the intro of the song as mentioned in the lyric book: Brad added the sounds on the intro song: multiple tracks of claps - and keys jingling. Hahn contributes more with programming, electronics, and other elements to many of the songs.
