Waiting For The End has been compared to Radiohead's 'House Of Cards' clip for its geometric, pixelic, energetic representation of the artists, man and machine. Radiohead, if you recall, used only lasers to give us a groundbreaking effect that was about as human as a brickwall.
Linkin Park's 'Wall' departs at this point as it exudes energy giving fans either a one off taste of something different or an entirely new direction for the band (let's face it they have been banging hard with huge success for 10 years).
MTV's James Montgomery says "..one of the central themes of A Thousand Suns is the uneasy coexistence between man and machine — where one begins, the other ends and the two intersect. "Waiting for the End" is mostly about that last idea — human beings becoming machines — and the struggle to keep living in spite of it. In a way, it's the central dilemma of our times: How do we continue to be human in an increasingly information-driven age."
Hard questions yet rather relevant as this world forges forward. The good thing about 'The Wall' is that there is definately "more" in there - just listen and watch it a few times and you will see something that either the band struck upon or planned all along.
Let us know what you think - Linkin Park Waiting For The End.
