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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars School Newspaper Review Sept. 27 2002
Format:Audio CD
Hybrid Theory, Linkin Park's freshman album (Produced by Don Gilmore), tastefully fuses intense rap with straight edged rock. This album blends Linkin Park in with other modern rock groups such as Crazy Town, Limp Bizkit, and other bands that mix the sound of rap and rock together to create a great sound that is gaining popularity in today's music. Oddly most rap/rock groups have swearing but Linkin Park doesn't in this album. "Crawling" and "One Step Closer" are songs which start off with a calm and relaxed sound that explodes into intense, adrenaline pumping
music. One of the songs, "Points of Authority", adds a deep and heavy style of music to be on a comedic movie called "Little Nicky", which stars Adam Sandler. The music videos from the chart topping songs have great visuals. "Crawling" includes a broken up world and a girl that is crying from being beaten. Her mascara is running down into the drain, which starts
the song off to a slow quiet intro, and then suddenly the lead singer screams the lyrics. Throughout the video the world is being pieced back together. In the end the girl has a great smile and looks vigorous. This album features positive and negative lyrics with plenty of contrasting sounds that lead the listener along a spectrum of emotions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Paying extra for... what? Two tracks? Dec 18 2002
By David
Format:Audio CD
Let me start by saying, I just can't stand those people who became an LP fan AFTER hearing the In The End single. Ok, anyways, this isn't a smart buy. You shouldn't spend 20 more dollars to hear extra tracks you can easily find on the internet. And, I heard some people saying that High Voltage is an AC/DC cover. IT'S NOT! ...
Anyways, I give Hybrid Theory 5 stars, but I give this edition only 3 stars because it's a stupid idea to spend so much on so little. Anyways, my favorite tracks are Papercut and With You. See ya' latter! :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Sept. 5 2005
Format:Audio CD
Many bands attempt to make hybrid music. Mixing rock and pop, hip-hop and rap. But nobody does it better then Linkin Park, who's musical hybrid of Rap/Rock/Techno has won over fans the world over, me included.
Each song on thier decut album, Hybrid Theory, is great in its own way, and almost any fan of any genre could find something to like here. Here's my song by song review.
1. Papercut: 3/5 this isn't a bad song, its just not a great song. Some of the vocals are weaker then the rest of the album and some of the lyrics arent up to par with thier other songs. But overall, its still a pretty good song, and a great way to open the album.
2. One Step Closer: 3/5 this is one of the bands most popular songs, and I can see why other people love it, but it just dosent come across as amazing to me. Its just to loud. I dont really have a problem with loud, but it distracts from the meaning of the song to much. But its still a good song, and worth a listen.
3. With You: 5/5 this is the first of the 3 best songs on the CD. It has great lyrics and vocals. But the main reason that I love it so much is because it really shows how well Linkin Park can balance techno and rock. It has some great guitar riffs, but even better turntable peices. Unfortuanately, this is one song that you either love or hate, and most people hate it. I loved it, but I guess it just depends on the kind of person you are.
4. Points of Authority: 4/5 its a pretty great song, and one of the favoured among Linkin Park fans. Unfortunately, it dosent meet best of the CD standards, but it's still a welcome edition to the CD and certainly not the worst song on here.
5. Crawling: 5/5 second of the 3 best songs on the CD, Crawling is another song that expertely showcases Linkin Park's ability to mix techno with rock.
