EDITORS’ NOTES

Reanimation is a hip-hop-heavy, electronic-steeped deconstruction of LINKIN PARK’s titanic 2000 debut, Hybrid Theory, calling on a flurry of MCs and remixers to tackle the rap-rock classic. "Enth E Nd" keeps the chorus hook for "In the End" mostly intact, but splinters the piano backdrop with stuttering beats and DJ scratches, while “Frgt/10” deploys The Alchemist and Chali 2na to transform the aggressive rap-metal clash "Forgotten" into a dusky, urgent hip-hop jam.

Very well done

From an overall production standpoint, I think this is great. While I prefer the heavier side of old-school Linkin Park, I think that they displayed a great sense of creativity with this remix effort, and it certainly beats most of the other "remix albums" of the time. This album has had many a spin in my car's CD player over the years, and while I've since moved on to more extreme forms of music, I can still look back on this record appreciate it for what it was. In short: It's worth a listen or 2.

Undervalued album!

I actually stumbled on it a few months ago trying to find some sign of old school lp (other than meteora and hybrid theory) and hit this one in the way back of the iTunes pile...loved the rap and remix...in my opinion it's an entire new album and those searching for vintage lp need to get this album...for being so good it ended up being forgotten in the meteora hype that ensued months later...which is a shame...

Well, I wish they would make another, I love these.
