"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 ›
1. By_Myslf (10/10) - this is one of my top favorite songs of this album. Every aspect about this song has been altered, but it still holds its emotional impact as it did in "Hybrid Theory".
2. Enth E ND (8/10)
3. Rnw@y (9/10) - the lyrics have been slightly altered, but i actually prefer the way that this remix sounds to the original -it has a certain indescribable catch to it that makes it great
4. Pts.of.Athrty (10/10) - this song was remixed by Orgy and sounds absolutley terrific, with an added deeper tone to it (my favorite part of this song are the last 45 seconds of instruments and mixes)
5. Cure for the Itch (8/10)- i loved this lyric free instrumental session from "Hybrid Theory" and was not let down when i heard it remixed here in "Reanimation". Added to this was sections from a song on the soundtrack to the movie "The Beach", which definatley complement the sound styles created by Linkin Park

01 : Opening
Rating - N/A
This is a very smooth, soft opening. It gets you ready for the next [awsome]song...
02 : Pts.Of.Athrty
Rating - 5/5
This song may not be the best (in my opinion) on the CD, but it sure is a great one to put in the begining. If you've heard all of the Hybrid Theory songs and loved them, then you'll find yourself jumping to this one.
03 : Enth E Nd
Rating - 4/5
Unlike the one in Hybrid Theory which is total rockish, this one has been converted to more of a rap-type style. Of course, it still kix, but if you're not a rap fan, you probably won't enjoy the song as much as you did the original version.
05 : Frgt/10
Rating - 3/5
Notice I skip some tracks because they're nothing but talking. This song has been changed to a much softer version than it's original. It keeps a nice beat and is still a good song, but doesn't fully make it to the best of the album.
06 : P5hng Me A*wy
Rating - 4/5
This one is more like it's original than any other on this CD. It keeps the same type of beat, but just has a different taste to it. You'd have to experience it to understand. After this slowish song, we move on to the really good stuff...
07 : Plc. 4 Mie Haed
Rating - 5/5
This one is also one of the best on the CD. It's been changed from rock, to more of a rock/rap one. It really keeps a good hard beat. This one might give you goosebumps!Read more ›

this may be one of my fav likin park cd's
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
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,... Read morePublished on June 16 2004 by Tango-Charlie
Overall, I like this CD, but I thought that some of the songs were fine the way they were while some were better. Read morePublished on June 16 2004 by mrooobaa
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
