The Rising Tied is the debut effort from Fort Minor, the side project from Linkin Park leader Mike Shinoda. Shinoda intended the album as an outlet for his interest in hip-hop, which couldn’t always be adequately expressed within Linkin Park. Working with Jay-Z on 2004’s Collision Course album gave Shinoda the perfect in to pursue Fort Minor, which Jay-Z executive-produced. While Sean Carter himself doesn’t make an appearance, many heavy hitters do, including Common, John Legend and Black Thought. “Petrified,” “Kenji” and “Slip Out the Back” touch on the volcanic emotion of Linkin Park, but the best songs on The Rising Tied are the collaborations with underground rap crew Styles of Beyond, personal friends of Shinoda’s from way back. “Feel Like Home,” “Back Home” and “Believe Me” hold hip-hop bounce, hard-rock intensity, and storytelling virtuosity in easy balance. However, the song that best defines Shinoda’s aesthetic is “Right Now” where over a tensely layered beat Shinoda sketches a panoramic view of struggle and worry that extends from the inner-city projects to the suburbs and onto the battlefields of Iraq.
Wow. pretty amazing stuff here. Mike does great!
Man, just like the other ppl, i didn't really like rap. I still don't like "slim shady" or 50 cent. But this stuff... it's amazing! Mike shinoda really shines in this album. Some of the song's like someone said before has a linkin park feel, but don't have too high expectations of any kind of genre you would be... um... expecting, i guess. I would suggest this to hip hip/rap fans and linkin park fans! Enjoy if you purchased!
In Linkin Park (greatest band, I wish whoever owns their rights would wisen up and let iTunes use them), Mike was an incredible 50% of the vocals. He used all of his skill (so i thought) to make every song unique. Then, on the LP homepage, I heard about Shinoda's other band, Fort Minor. I looked them up on iTunes, heard "Remember the Name", and I was hooked! I normaly don't like rap, other than Eminem, but when I heard this band, it gave me a whole new view in the genre. Mike gave this album his all, and it shows! I highly recomend buying the whole album, but if you don't want to, at least buy In Sterio, Where'd You Go, Kenji, and Remember the Name. Good work Mike, and I look foward to your next album!
i hate it when ppl say they know FM when they only know Whered you go! ppl u dont know FM until you hear him back at his roots. LINKIN PARK!!!!!
