You can't really call this a "remix" album like P. Diddy and J-Lo have done because all they did was re-think the beats. Linkin Park DEFINITELY re-do the beats, but on most occasions, they offer different lyrics as well. Like the track "ENTH E ND," Mike Shinoda and Motion Man offer different lyrics to a Raukus Records-esque hip-hop beat. It's really different and really entertaining. However, The best tracks come at the end and are not hip-hop influenced. "1STP KLOSR" and "KRWLNG" are the tracks that feature Jonathan Davis of Korn and Aaron Lewis of Staind, respectively. Both artists add their completely different, yet hypnotic voices to the tracks. Each one's voice make the track stand out just that much more than how Chester Bennington was able to do on the original album.
Overall, I can't give this album 5 stars because even though it is revolutionary, it's not the best album it could have been. "MY<DSMBR" is too techno for my liking and i still prefer the original over the remix to that song. The four skits are pointless, but nonetheless, seem requiste for any album nowadays, except for "Hybrid Theory" which had no skits. Still, despite some minor flaws, this is still a great album and i highly recomend it to anyone.
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).
