Product Description

Product Description

MTV Ultimate Mash-Ups is one of the biggest musical events in years, premiering on MTV with a show featuring the multi-platinum Linkin Park, the biggest contemporary rock band in the world, joining forces with the multi-platinum Jay-Z, one of the biggest stars in hip-hop. Mash-Ups brings together artists from different genres to seamlessly blend their songs, creating an exciting and unique musical experience. Offered in both CD-sized Digipak and Amaray package, it features a CD with versions of existing Linkin Park and Jay-Z tracks mixed together in the studio; and a DVD featuring two versions of them performing these Mash-Up tracks for MTV.


The first question everyone asks about Collision Course is "Is this album more Jay-Z or Linkin Park?" The wrong answer is that it's Jay-Z with a loud band or a back-and-forth of covers where one rearranges the other. The right answer is that this CD/DVD set is quite possibly one of the best cross-genre pairings of its kind. What started off as an exercise at "mashing" a Linkin Park track with a Jay-Z track turned into a fantastic pickup game between two artists at the top of their worlds. Each brought a short list of their best songs to the field and walked away with a six-song trophy. This is recess in the supergroup sandbox, and the boys shared their toys. "Numb/Encore" and "Izzo/In the End" are near-perfect plays of seamless sonic moves and mic assists from heavy metal to hip-hop and back. Both artists have spent a little time in the other camp on various parts of their records, but it's the collaboration that makes this album a winner. It may be true that Linkin Park is less than convincing than J-Hova on "Big Pimpin'/Papercut," but there's no evidence of "I" on this team. In fact, the DVD clearly shows Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda taking on the role of head coach as he commands the digital workstation, the mixing desk, and all the players with a collective spirit. --Pete Hilgendorf

First of all the idea of Collision Course is extremely exciting. That said, Linkin Park and Jay Z, for the most part, have done a great job with this one. Their mashups, especially Numb/Encore, are very well done. My main complaint is that six songs on the CD is a bit slight. A couple more would have really completed this awesome CD/DVD combo. What is included is awesome. The inclusion of the DVD makes this a worthwhile purchase and makes up for the lack of songs. A very interesting concept that has been well executed. If you are a Linkin Park or Jay Z fan, I recommend checking out this one.
Numb/Encore (5) Quality stuff. My favorite.
Jigga/What (4.5) Very interesting, infectious mix.
Big Pimpin/Papercut (4) A good, solid mix.
Dirt off Your Shoulder/Lying From You (4.5) Flows nicely and is a great mix.
Points Of Authority/99 Problems/One Step Closer (4.5) Nice transition mid-way through, another good mash.
Izzo/In The End (4.5) Very good, although In The End could have been better in this mix I think.

The collision course, Jay Z and Linking Park CD, is good. If you like both the artists then u will love this cd. The main reason for buying it is for the in concert, and behind the scenes DVD, thats probly the only reason to buy it. Becuase the Cd has only 6 songs, mind you that are very well brought togeather. I thought it was a good CD, find out for yourself, and check it out.

I picked up this album the day it came out, dropped it in my CD player in my car, and haven't taken it out since. Some people have seen this album as nothing more than a "cash-grab" by the corporate suits at MTV. But it's so much more than that. The tracks are all well mixed and produced. The only issue that I have with this album is that while this is a "new album" it would've added more if each had used an original score in the tracks rather than cutting and pasting from their own albums. Though it's still a great addition to anyone's collection.
