Product Description


It may be too cynical to assume Hybrid Theory changed its name to Linkin Park in order to appear right next to Limp Bizkit in your local record bin. But rock-rap workouts like "One Step Closer" and "Papercut" do make Linkin Park a comfortable fit with Fred Durst and his ilk. Producer Don Gilmore (Pearl Jam, Lit) and twin vocal threats Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda serve up industrial-strength rap and rock melodicism with equal aplomb on this debut effort. "Points of Authority" aims to sound like Trent Reznor mixing it up with Metallica, whereas guitarist Brad Delson's Edge-y harmonics help "In the End" and "Pushing Me Away" evoke a dark romanticism akin to A Perfect Circle. Curiously, the band gets by with no bass player, while sample-happy DJ Joseph Hahn's step into the spotlight on the instrumental "Cure For The Itch" suggests a potential for eclecticism that could help Linkin Park outlive its seemingly transient genre. --Bill Forman

5.0 out of 5 stars Ion's View on: Hybrid Theory Feb. 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ion's view on Hybrid Theory: One of the better cd's I've listened to. The main reason I like Linkin Park is the fact they combine rock, rap, and trance, which are my favorite genres.
Before I review the songs, I must state that people are giving this cd flak without even listening to it. This is metal and rap and some techno, but you don't have to say it's not 100% metal or rap or techno. I mean, Snoop Dogg and Metallica tours with Linkin Park. I think that explains it.
Now on with the review.
1. Papercut: Breakbeat metal. This song is about paranoia, which makes me wonder if they accidently spelt Papercut instead of Paranoid. It goes from a techno styled intro into a metal styled chorus and into the rap styled verses. The break is pretty good, where the instruments tone down to just the drums and they rap, "The Face inside is right beneath the skin." After that, it goes into a beautifal ending, where chester sings "The sun goes down; I feel the light betray me." and back into a combination of the chorus and so.
2. One Step Closer: Rock. This song is pretty good. It was made to describe the process of making lyrics to Runaway, which turned into a small quarrel. Other than that, it describes getting pushed closer and closer to the edge to the point of insanity, and before you can even respond, you're being interrupted. Before this song was ever made, I caught myself saying, "You're getting me one step closer to the edge and I'm about to break!" There's also a break in the enhanced/live version of this song, which is pretty cool sounding. Then it goes into the highly angsty "SHUT UP WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU" Break. Overall, this song is great.
3. With You: Eletronic Rap Rock and the best song on the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars HYBRID THEORY- Two words to describe it all July 27 2002
Format:Audio CD
Ok...we all heard everyone's review for Hybrid Theory from it being pitiful to being widely acclaimed, but all in all, it's an impressive cd! The name "Hybrid Theory" pretty much sums up LP's genre and style of music.With an influx of different styles and influences of music varying from the Deftones, Stone-Temple Pilots,Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, and NiN, the end result is a well-crafted and wonderful album filled with sounds of electronic, rock, rap, alterantive, nu-metal, and some emo here and there. Basically sounds to please everyone's taste. Then of course there is The Incredible Mr.Hahn, the DJ of LP. His masterful blend of beats, sampling, and scratching intertwine perfectly with Chester's astonishing voice, which can go from screaming to singing melancholy in a split-second, has made him one of the most well-respected artists of this century. As well as, Mike Shinoda's Emceeing, whom has a in-your-face, fast-paced, throwing lyrics in a heartbeat, rapping just keep making the band better. I didn't like Linkin Park when I first heard their first single "One Step Closer"... i felt, in my taste in music at the time, was a bit unwavering. But then, a song known as "Crawling" was released, this totally changed my perspective of the band. Showing me that they are not just a hard-core rock band, but a band that is not afraid to show a softer, more deeper side of emotion. The lyrics to that song are extremely powerful and you can feel the emotion that Chester sings in that song. Thusly, this lead me into temptation to buy the cd. When I finished the entire cd for the first time, I was not impressed, of course I didn't have the appreciation of the rock sound of rock just yet. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliance....Sheer brilliance! July 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is probably one of the greatest albums ever recorded. It skillfully blends rap, rock and pop. From the rock out Papercut to the fast speeding Pushing me away, this may be one of the most important debut albums of all time. Here's the list of songs in order:
Papercut: When I first heard it I loved it. It has excellent drums in the beginning and in the last part is AWESOME!
One step Closer: Probably one of the best songs on the album. Both singers sign the chorus this time, which is rare for Linkin Park. Very good.
With you: No one really likes it that much, but I like it. If you listen to it a couple of times you'll learn to love it. Great sound effects in the beginning and awesome DJ work. A+
Points of Authority: This is maybe one of the best rock songs ever made. Great guitar in the beginning and moves on to be awesome. Personally, I prefer the re-mix on Re-animation album, but this is good anyway.
Crawling: Great song. Features keyboards which is also rare for Linkin Park. The vocals are amazing, the drumming is about 10/5, guitars are awesome and the video rules. The best song on the whole album.
Runaway: Awesome sound effects in the beginning, mediocre chorus, but overall a great song.
Track number 7: I forgot the name of this song, sorry, but it doesn't matter. Because this is the only disgrace this album has to show for. It isn't that good at all. Well, it has some goodness to it, but barely anything.
In the end: The pop/rock hit of this album. EXCELLENT drumming and spectacular music video. One of the best songs on the album.
A place for my head: The loudest most metal song on the album, I love it. Some of you pop lovers probably won't like it that much, but I love it. Great guitars.
