"Reanimation" is not just another remix album. With the help of over 20 friends in rock, electronic, and hip hop, from well-known to underground, we've reinterpreted all of the songs from Hybrid Theory, plus High Voltage and My December. "Reanimation" strives not just to be different from the original, but different from everything else as well.
Reanimation is the evil twin of Linkin Park's 2000 debut, Hybrid Theory. While plotting their next studio album, the Southern California band enlisted some of aggro rock's leading lights, as well as some of the more enlightened underground MCs and producers, to slice and dice all the songs on their debut (including a few bonus cuts that made it to their Japanese release). Linkin Park allowed their special guests--including Korn's Jonathan Davis, Staind's Aaron Lewis, Orgy's Jay Gordon, the Roots' Black Thought, and Jurassic 5's Chali 2NA--to run riot through their songbook, tweaking melodies, writing new lyrics, and sometimes changing the entire intent of the originals. As a result, this collection of 20 songs is Mr. Hyde to Hybrid Theory's Dr. Jekyll. Most of Linkin Park's atmospheric and melodic moments have ended on the cutting-room floor--along with the self-consciousness that pervaded many of the songs--replaced with a brash impudence that's more rap than rock. Chali 2NA entirely changes the landscape on "Forgotten," shape-shifting the song into an alien being dubbed "Frgt/10," which takes you to a dark, desolate place with only your own disturbed thoughts and some electronic bleeps for company. And that's enough. This is a masterful art project that truly succeeds. --Jaan Uhelszki

I listen to LP because it's different, and their lyrics are so awesome. If you listen closely, they make a lot of sense. As well as the fact that LP doesn't just fit in one specific category in Alternative (If that makes any sense).
Linkin Park actually doesn't need any help in the production area of things, but even so, just to be absolutely sure they prove that they will not be musically outdone, the sophomore rock group recruits the talented Kutmasta Kurt, Alchemist and Evidence, among others. I suppose this is needed, since this is technically a remix album, though I can see Linkin Park handling this aspect of the album without any help.
Linkin Park's emcee is very talented, all by himself, however, he has one of those voices that needs variety to counter-act him. His lyrics are strong and his flow is fluent, he just needs a different sound to break the monotony of his flow on every track. Linkin Park does a superb job of balancing the chemistry of this album. Track 5, "FRGT/10" is one of the best cuts on the whole CD, the original Linkin Park track being remixed by talented Alchemist. Lyrically, however, Chali2Na stands out like a floodlight in the dark. If only his verse was a little longer! Track 5 is nowhere near the only worthy track on this CD.Read more ›
There is one low on this muscular masterpiece. It's the remix of In The End, featuring Motion Man. It's, well, awful. It completely butchers the original, stripping it of it's best assets and adding nothing new. The remix of High Voltage also lacks the kick of the original, though it's not nearly as bad as this disaster.
Still, this album deserves its 5 stars for intent and execution. Though most fans will probably write it off as "commercial cash-in" on the Linkin Park and Hybrid Theory names, it's ironically far from it.Read more ›
Good opening, not too long, but not quite the genere of the CD
I thought LP improved this song a lot. It was great before, but now it's awesome.
Enth E Nd: 3/5
This song is OK. I thought it was better the way it was before because LP threw away the rock and made it completely rap. Rap and rock is good together, but not weak rock and a giant portion of rap.
Not really a song, just a message for Mike (the rapper).
If LP kept the rock part in, I would love this song, but the sound makes up for it. The rap part sounds really cool. It's a tie between the original and the remix
P5hng Me A*wy: 4/5
They made this song a little better. It was never really a good song in my opinoin, but LP added some things that made the song sound pretty neat.
Plc.4 Mie Haed: 4/5
LP did a good job on remixing this song. They did a good job of keeping the rock and rap combined. It's overall better
X-Ecutioner Style: 1/5
I have no idea why LP even put this in. It's just a little screaming with Black Thought rapping. Sounds horrible, and is probably the worst LP song ever.
H! Vltg3: 2/5
LP didn't really change this song at all. The rap is just stronger.
Just another message for Mike.
It's a tie bewteen the original and remix. They made the song stronger, but Aceyalone's rapping was terrible.
Just a little piano.
I think the remix is better than the original. The whole song has a great sound.
The original was better.Read more ›

Very good surround mix. You can hear different sounds coming from the 5 speakers. It also respects the sonority of the original stereo mix, but make it so much better. Read morePublished 18 months ago by jphilmajor

I am a HUGE Linkin Park fan. Nevertheless, let's cut our losses. You should get this album, but you should be disappointed. Read morePublished on June 28 2004 by Robert J Lucas
I just read over on LinkinPark.com, that Mike has some ideas for redoing a couple (not the whole CD) of the songs from Meteora and releasing them. Read morePublished on June 22 2004 by Slothmo
this is an ok album, if u're an LP fan, u might want 2 buy it just 2 see how itz like, but u're better off just getting meteora and hybrid theory- the guest singerz really suck.Published on June 19 2004 by Someone
Linkin Park is a wonderful band and the idea of putting out a cd in between your two studio albums is a great idea. Read morePublished on June 14 2004 by Nick Mercer
