On March 6, 2014, the band premiered \"Guilty All the Same\", which features Rakim, from the album through Shazam. The track was later released by Warner Bros. on March 7, 2014, as the lead single promoting the then-unannounced sixth studio album by the band. A music video for \"Guilty All the Same\" also premiered on YouTube on March 25, 2014. The music video, a continuation of the band's collaboration with Xbox, was made entirely with the in-game engine of Team Dakota's 2014 sandbox video game Project Spark. Additionally, the course made for the music video was made openly available by the band, giving players of Project Spark on Microsoft Windows and the Xbox One the opportunity of editing and remixing the course.
Upon its release, The Hunting Party received generally positive reviews from music critics. At Metacritic, the album has received an aggregated score of 65/100, which indicates \"generally favorable reviews\", based on 15 reviews. Dave Simpson of The Guardian gave the album a positive review. Upon giving the album three stars, he praised the band's return to their original sound, stating that \"Shinoda's desire to make a punk rock record and Bennington's more ethereal electropop segments don't always make comfortable bedfellows, but Rob Bourdon's terrific drumming means the energy never lets up\". Despite labeling some tracks of the record like \"Until It's Gone\" as cliché, he commented positively on the music and writing of others such as \"Drawbar\" and \"Rebellion\". He further wrote, \"Linkin Park certainly know their audience, and here delicately navigate the gulf between their own aspirations and a fanbase who will celebrate the band's loud return to rocking hard.\" Chris Schulz of The New Zealand Herald also gave the album a positive review, describing the record as \"Loud, spontaneous and free\", attributes that, he states, \"aren't normally associated with Linkin Park, but The Hunting Party takes just seconds to prove the sixth release from the Californian precision-metal act is a different beast\". He continues to compare the album with the band's recent discography, describing their previous three albums as having \"sagged with overwrought ballads and pretentious soft-rock\", while The Hunting Party \"gets on with the task of rap-rocking like it's 1999 all over again.\" 1e1e36bf2d
