Product Description


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

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Different but Unique July 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I loved this CD, but bought it with totally different expectations. Half of the CD is absolutely amazing, and the other half is just rap/techno remixes with different artists which I find really annoying. Personally, I prefered the originals, but I love this CD because some of the songs are so unique and different. I hated this CD at first, but it's grown on me so much! My fave remixes are Points of Authority, With You, Crawling (Awesome at 5:40!!) and My December. If you're dissing this CD, remember remixes are always different and always have different beats. You will probably hate this CD if you hate remixes in general. This CD has a more techno and dance beat than the others.
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars Underground Rising! July 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album, in my mind, is without a doubt, Linkin Park's best album. They experiment more with a hip-hop/hard rock cross that comes off with a very original style, worthy of recognition. I myself am a hard-core fan of underground hip-hop, not the ridiculous rap you hear more than often on the radio, but the clever, positive messages that intertwine their way through the master wordplay of a talented emcee. Oddly enough, "Reanimation" showcases some of the most talented underground emcees, backed with EXACTLY the potent, emotional production and melodies they need to showcase their talent. This is rap, rock, and music in general at it's very best.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One absymal low can't stop this sonic powerhouse. June 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
Reanimation is the kind of album I wish we saw more of. Linkin Park, probably for both commercial and inspirational reasons, took some time to completely rework their debut, Hybrid Theory. Teaming up with some of the best MCs of underground hip-hop and producers from the harder rock world, LP essentially gives their original songs something of an andrenal stimulant, turbo-charging the tracks into edgier, angrier, more industrial sounds. The drum set is dropped in favor of the drum machine, the Marshall stack for the ProTools...the entire album is an unholy fusion of industrial electronica and rock that works so well it's, well, evil. Forgotten is completely reborn in a bass-heavy, dark hip-hop act. Jay Gordon of Orgy gives Points Of Authority a kinetic digital boost. Mike Shinoda unloads his less mainstream baggage in the standout and absolutely unbelievable remixes of Pushing Me Away and Crawling, the latter gifted with an amazing vocal cameo from Staind's Aaron Lewis and a spine-chilling assortment of strings. LP's resident DJ Joseph Hahn punches up the intensity in the distortedly epic remix of With You, while the Humble Brothers and Jonathan Davis of Korn up the complexity and length of One Step Closer in a jaw-dropping act.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some songs are better and some are worse June 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
Overall, I like this CD, but I thought that some of the songs were fine the way they were while some were better.
Opening: 4/5
Good opening, not too long, but not quite the genere of the CD
Pts.of.Athrty: 5/5
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.
[Chali]: N/A
Not really a song, just a message for Mike (the rapper).
Frgt/10: 4/5
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.
[Riff-Raff]: N/A
Just another message for Mike.
Wth>You: 4/5
It's a tie bewteen the original and remix. They made the song stronger, but Aceyalone's rapping was terrible.
Ntr\Mssion: N/A
Just a little piano.
Ppr:Kut: 5/5
I think the remix is better than the original. The whole song has a great sound.
Rnw@y: 3/5
The original was better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good 5.1, nice remixes and some of the best Linkin Park
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 more
