Title: Linkin Park - Reanimation
Post by: Reef on July 30, 2002, 12:42:15 PM
1. Opening
Your normal intro to the album Violin and Chello being played.. Pretty weird.. But nice and relaxing.

2. Points Of Authority - Jay Gordon
Now I would have thought that most of you would have heard this track on TV or Raido at one point. This isn’t very HipHop influenced. I think this is the weakest track on the album. The basic music backing is a guitar riff, base and drums obviously. I prefer the original to this track. Defiantly the track weakest on the album.
Rating: 2.5/5

3. Enth E Nd - Kutmasta Kurt feat Motion Man
Starts off with the normal piano for In the end being all mixed up and you got Motion Man (I think) just giving some shout-outs. It starts with Mike Shinoda rapping his verse, its slightly changed from the original, pretty dope verse, there is one pretty wack line but it isn’t anything that ruins the song. Then Chester Bennington does the normal chorus for this song. Motion Man comes up and lays down his verse, really dope.. I was feelin’ it 100%. Then Mike comes back on and just spits, nothing to do with the original just a dope verse.
A thing to note with this track is the beat. It’s the basic piano of in the end, with a basic drum in the back and actually making a beat out of it. Kutmasta Kurt does a brilliant job with this remix.
Rating: 5/5

4. [Chali]
Answering Machience

5. Frgt/10 - Alchemist feat Chali 2na
Another really good beat, the Alchemist does a good job on this track. It starts off with the ‘pre-chours’ from the original track. Mike Shinoda then just, as he usually does, rips the track. His flow is laid back, but its like hes trying to make a point and make sure you listen. Really good. This is basiclly a Hip Hop remix of the original, and its dope. Chali 2na then comes on and raps, I cant think who here minds me of but from start to finsish the verse is dope. Then afterwards, just some dope sound effects to finish the track off
Rating: 4/5

6. P5hng Me A*wy - Mike Shinoda feat Stephen Richards
This track just basically starts off with a different beat, it’s the original’s lyrics basically remixed and sung over the top and around each other. Its got a pretty heavy rock-type beat. Theres not much else to say about this track. The hook is changed, nothing too drastic, but changed none the less. Not as creative as a lot of the tracks on this CD.
Rating: 3/5

7. Plc.4 Mie Haed - Amp Live feat Zion
Just seems like another one like the last track, they’ve taken the old lyrics, re-arranged them a bit and put a rock beat underneath. Accept this time there is a guest Emcee. I have no clue who it is.. I think its Zion, pretty tight. Does the usual emccing, good flow, and his voice is pretty dope. The end gets pretty heavy, quite good with the, Go Away You’ lyrics from the original song.
Rating: 3.9/5

8. X-Ecutioner Style feat Black Thought
Well if you’ve heard the X-Ecutioners album you’ll know exactly what to expect. Starts off with Chester shouting, ‘SHUT UP’ over a heavy guitar riff, and the X-Men scratching, sounds really dope. The beat reminds me of, ‘Its Going Down’ I never heard of Black Thought before, but he does a good job on this track. Lyrics are dope, its just a typical X-Men track.
Rating:  4/5

9. H! Vltg3 - Evidence feat Pharoahe Monch and DJ Babu
From looking at the list of guests you can tell this track is gonna be dope. Just a typical Hip Hop beat, sounds like a piano keeping rhythm. Mike Shinoda spits the same verses in the pervious versions of High Voltage. But on this track Monch appears with his unique flow and just plain dope style.
‘Telepath deliver verses without postage//Mike Shinoda, Pharoahe Monch we high voltage//’
Rating: 4.9/5

10. [Riff Raff]
Some stupid Skit again. Another outtake of his answering machine.

11. Wth>You - Chairman Hahn feat Aceyalone
This sounds A LOT like the original version in all aspects. Basiclly sounds like a slightly changed beat, with the same lyrics and in the same order. But being a big fan of the original version I like this one too. This track is basically down to personal preference.
Rating: 3/5

12. Ntr – Mssion
Just some piano interlude. Quite calming.

13. PPr:Kut - Cheapshot and Jubacca feat Rasco and Planet Asia
Really catchy fast beat to this one. It gets heavy at the hook as Chester Sings it. But the beat goes really well, and brings some good lyrics and flows out of the rappers appearing on the track. I can’t tell who is who but I can guarantee that all off the rappers on this track spit dope.
Rating: 5/5

14. Rnw@y - Backyard Bangers feat Phoenix Orion
This is a pretty good song as the original. The beats sounds a lot like the proper version again, but that doesn’t mean that the track is wack. Chester sings slightly different lyrics on his verses, still dope and a good listen. Talking about his aprehention and need for starting a fresh. A good track overall
Rating: 4/5

15. My<Dsmbr - Mickey P. feat Kelli Ali
Now, people who have heard this track may disagree totally with me on this one. I don’t mind this song, but personally I think this is the only track on this album that I can say they have ruined. This song, difficult to explain what its about. Basically an abstract way of talking about his depression. The whole track is too upbeat for my liking, it takes away all the emotion and feeling from the lyrics. But please check out the original version. Linkin Park – My December
Rating: 1/5 (This si low beacuse I am being biast LOL. I just think that the original is a beautiful song and i think they ruined it big time)

16. [Stef]
Stupid skit from answering machine.

17. By_Myslf - Josh Abraham and Mike Shinoda
Changed beat, its pretty heavy the chorus doesn’t change mcuh from the original but this is still a pretty cool track. Something that a lot of people here might not like because of the style of the music. But I think its pretty cool
Rating: 4/5

18. Kyur4 Th Ich - Chairman Hahn
If you ever heard, ‘Cure for the itch’ off the Hybrid Theory LP you would know it was basically Mr Hahn or Chairman Hahn as he is now known shows off his mixing and scratching skills. It’s a pretty good track if you like that sorta thing. Ima kinda feeling it. Its growing on me.
Rating: 3.9/5

19. 1stp Klosr - The Humble Brothers feat Jonathan Davis
This comes across as a weird track. It sounds pretty hip hop, but with a heavy rocky drum beat. There isn’t much going on for the first part of the track. You just hear Chester shouting in the background. When it finally does start properly the lyrics are basiclly the same, with the heavy drum beat and guitar riff. It’s a pretty good track. One that again I don’t think many people will like here.
Rating: 4/5

20. Krwlng - Mike Shinoda feat Aaron Lewis
Start of this track sounds similar to the opening. It’s a very laid back track, Violin playing in the background. Reminds me a little of My December. You heat echoes of the original track as if their looking back at it. Then you hear the melody for crawling and Aaron Lewis basically sings the original backed up by Chester. The hook is basiclly the same as the original but its echoed by Aaron Lewis. This is a really good track. Like a ‘chill out’ track I’d call it. Very good..

Rating: 5/5

Overall Rating: 9/10

I wouldnt go out and buy this album without being a fan of LP, but i suggest u download some of the tracks to get a feel.

I also picked it up and it is pretty much a solid cd. Very much hip hop influenced. All the tracks are dope especially the one with Pharaohe Monch.

A good release
