    Editorial Review

    In 2006, Danger Mouse is King Midas of the music world. He has an uncanny knack for creating jagged, dense, frenzied beats and odd, eerie, vivid soundscapes that never compromise the music's natural flow. Meanwhile, rapper and singer Cee-Lo, a veteran of Atlanta's Dirty South scene, has never been one to be constrained by hip-hop conventions, and is a willing partner in adventure. The result is an intrepid psychedelic blend of pop, hip-hop, soul, and rock that consistently challenges and delights. It's no wonder that "Crazy," with its modest riff, irresistible hook, and disarming opening line ("I remember when, I remember, I remember when I lost my mind") became a worldwide Internet sensation a full six months before the official release of Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars What can I say that already hasn't been said?
    Positive, fun songs.Not complex, but enough to make you want to keep coming back.Good stuff!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great modern-soul.
    I am a large fan of both Danger Mouse's production and Cee-Lo's crooning. Now, I admit, I prefer Cee-Lo's rapping to crooning, but the man does have a unique, and intriguingly appealing voice. Danger Mouse is like the RZA for a new millenium; everyone he works with, he knows how to provide the perfect production to compliment that artist. He's done it for MF DOOM, Jemini, the Gorillaz, and others; Danger Mouse is the best modern producer in the industry.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A "RAGING SEA" of Music!
    I don't want to rehash everything everyone's already said before, but all of the superlative reviews are true.This is one of those albums that the more you listen to it, the more AMAZING it becomes.I have been playing it nonstop in my car on the way to and from work since the day I bought it, and can't seem to get enough.I've always been a Cee-Lo fan, although I confess I was never really familiar with Danger Mouse.Cee-Lo's lyrics are exceptional-- I'd even go so far as to say profound, and coupled with Danger's beats, this album is on another level.My favorite track on this album is "Storm Coming".The beat is just epic in scope, and Cee-Lo really get's caught up in his rendition as the song builds to a crescendo.When he sings "When I sing it's a cyclone, I'm writing a RAGING sea" you FEEL it!That song is great played loud while coasting down a highway.Simply spectacular.Indeed, all the songs on this album are great, with one exception in my opinion- the opening track "Go Go Gadget Gospel".I love "Feng Shui," "Who Cares," "Smiley Faces," "St. Elsewhere" "Necromancer" and "Transformer".A truly outstanding album.Buy it!!!(Oh, by the way, the OutKast double album has NOTHING on this album.I thought Speakerboxx/The Love Below was mostly crap.St. Elsewhere is something wonderful.) ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Surprising effort.Lyrically, I am not so sure.
    I was hesitant to buy this CD.After hearing BEP and what they had to offer, I wondered how Fergie would do on her own.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good
    I must say that the great thing about Fergie, is she can actually sing. She does showcase that talent on several songs here. While im not a big fan of raping songs much anymore, those are good as well. You really need to listen to this cd a couple times to enjoy, ill admit i downloaded it once and was like ugh. But then i relistened to each song and found myself truly liking the cd. Its just like any cd really you have to listen to a few times to really get the feel of the artist. I like her singing in Wild Orchid so i guess i really like the songs more where she actually sings. I was never really a big fan of London Bridge, but i suppose i see why she released it.

    I think Luda is awesome.This album has tight lyrics.My favorite songs are money maker, mouths to feed (this song is the bomb!), slap, and girls gone wild.

    4-0 out of 5 stars "Luda Had A Serious Moment"
    When you think of Ludacris...you think...lyrical...out spoken...and a straight fool. Luda's previous Albums have been quite entertaining. And I notice a lot of people have wrote reviews saying this is his worse album. My question is... why? Because he decided to have a serious moment. This album shows his maturity and shows that he is not afraid to have "A serious moment". Luda is still talented whether you feel this or not. The man still has a way with words. If you are a true Ludacris fan then you will purchase this and like it...Damn it!...lol

    Editorial Review

    Let's see...a rap artist is hyped insufferably, his music is leaked incessantly, his album is delayed indefinitely, the hype grows, rinse, repeat. Welcome to the world of pop music in 2006, when "unauthorized" Internet seepage can somehow manage to simultaneously make and break an aspiring young performer. Lupe Fiasco's unfinished debut CD was slathered all over the Web for months, like some sort of Lonelygirl15, before finally seeing the legitimate light of day. That said, the Chicago-bred rapper, who rose to prominence thanks to his "Touch the Sky" collab with Kanye West, is hardly a slouch. His skittering, low-key rapping style is truly distinctive, and his lyrics are mostly thoughtful and creative without being heavy-handed. Despite frequent comparisons to "thinking man's rappers" from Tribe and De La Soul to Nas, the most apt comparison might be to Kanye West himself: Like West, Fiasco rises above the trappings of the street without sounding condescending or out of touch, and his sound has the same "timeless" quality--partly old-school, partly of the moment. Yet somehow, Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A REALLY REALLY!!! good album
    I'd first heard of Lupe Fiasco on a track off of Kanye West's album "Late Registration" called "Touch The Sky" i said to myself man this guys good. As 2006 rolls around I kept hearing his first single "Kick,Push" on the radio I knew I had to get this cd when it came out. When I opened it and first played it in my truck OH MAN it was like opening your first present on christmas day. I couldn't stop playing it from "Real" to "The Emporer's Soundtrack" and the track that makes you think of the special girl in your life "Daydreamin" featuring Jill Scott, this is album you should DEFIANTLY add to your collection.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Might be the best album of the '06!
    I picked up this album just 2 try something different 4 a change. There hasn't been 2 much good rap/hip-hop lately, but I spoke 2 soon because this album is definitely a classic. Name a rap/hip-hop album u can play from beginning 2 end, there aren't many. This dude is on some other s***, I really was surprised how great this album was. Anytime Jay-Z is backin' u, it is some magic there and Lupe Fiasco opened another door for people who listen 2 rap/hip-hop and others who don't. If u can't feel this joint, something is seriously wrong with u. The only album that may top this is Jay-Z's new joint and Luda's joint wasn't 2 bad either.

    3-0 out of 5 stars the return of "happy rap" for the kids, but with dark undertones
    As interesting and clever as Lupe Fiasco is, I have to say, don't believe the hype.What we have here is the return of "happy rap," similar to the Fresh Prince, early De La Soul, and the other middle class rappers that basically influenced Kanye West (who put on this kid).As evidenced by the other posted reviews, Lupe shows that "happy rap" is effective in crossing over and appealing to white kids (and kiddies) and even rock fans. Many of his songs, with their pop rock structures, even sound like rock, especially "Instrumental."Lupe actually sounds a lot like The Future Sound (not of London), a two man crew from New York who had an album back in 1992 called "The Whole Shabang, Vol. 1" which included a lot of clevel jazz and rock samples and also had psychedelic sounds and raps just like this CD.That said, I have to say that the main difference between Lupe and his predecessors is that he does have a bleak side as well as a happy one, and ironically, this is where the young brother shows promise.Some may look upon his stuff as "dork rap" given his square kid flow, schoolboy glasses, and skateboarder personality.But on songs like "He Say She Say," "American Terrorist," and "Kick Push II" (which sounds so much like an old school De La track it borders on plagiarism) he shows an edge that balances out the dorkiness.Maybe the problem lies with his flow itself.At times his raps sound affected like he's trying to say too much in his cadences.Listen to how many times he inhales while he's trying to rhyme fast.Maybe he should stop using so many silly methaphors and similies and just use direct language to make his point (and that doesn't mean he needs to cuss either).In any case, if this kid would just work on his flow some more, develop a little more of an edge, and not come off so much like "I'm Kanye's dorky little brother" than he would be worth the hype. Until then, peep Kenn Starr or Skyzoo for the real kids who are coming up with the hypeness.

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE ROOTS CREW
    Yo the roots come sick wit it again! The title track ranks among thier best ever. The first 5 songs are all fya. Questlove, though the human beat machine breaks off some crisp beats. He alternates between electric and traditional sets. There is nothing as jazzy as "one shine", "what they do", or "break you off". Progessive hip hop/rock comes alive on title track (my fav). "Here I come" is another dope track. The keyboard guitar and bass breath 2gether on this album. This is truly one of the few hip-hop concept albums. G.T. is bold, thick, daring, melodic yet heavy. Though it ain't classic The Roots lived up to the wait of this album. I wish they got mo props and pub. They deserve it. They signed to Def Jam and went more underground. F^CK JAY-Z!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT DONT FEEL RIGHT SUPPORT THE ROOTS One.

    All, I have to say is wow.Who would have thought The Roots would have grown into mighty musicians.They are a movement and if you are just catching on, then you need to go spend the $200 on released material, white labels, mixtapes, concert tapes and DVDs.The Roots have always delivered the right music for the right moment.Somehow, they have never been able to escape the realm of the backpackers.After signing with Def Jam under the Jay dynasty, I was hoping Def Jam's massive marketing machine would send them skyrocketing into mainstream music success.

    Now I loved his first one don't get me wrong, but I think this is by far so so much better, its more mature sounds and you can really tell he has grown a lot since his first cd, Now I am not a fan of all the G-Unit crew only Lloyd and Buck are my favorites, but I got to give it up to Dre and Eminem and even 50 for doing their job on this one, its hot, You should get it if you like rap music not just cause your a fan of G-unit its sooooo good and if your a fan of his GO SUPPORT IT!!!!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Worst CD In A Long Time
    If you like real rap, not bubble gum rap, DO NOT buy this. It's horrible. I thought that Hunger for More was really good, but this flat out sucked. There was not one good track. A good rapper turned bad by the likes of 50 Cent.

    3-0 out of 5 stars What happened to that boy ?
    Alright, so Lloyd Banks is the G-UNIT official NY lyricist, but NY rappers sophomore albums don't usually live up to the hype. Well, well, well, ain't no surprise here, the punch lines are here, $.50 is here, the sung hooks and the gansta mantra too.

    4-0 out of 5 stars One ingredient missing in an otherwise perfect stew
    Where do you go after Aquemini, an album that had it all. Witty Lyricism, Social commentary, rich music and an undeniable chemistry between two clearly different personalities. For most artist, nowhere, but these cats were able to take it one step further with Stankonia which added pop appeal to the mix while continuing to push further musically (B.O.B). Surely they couldn't take it further than Stankonia but with Speakerboxx/Love Below they did just that. This time they highlighting the multiple personalities that the group has. Allowing Andre 3000 to really do his thing.
    4-0 out of 5 stars [3.5]--Nope I'm not bored Big Boi...............I'm not Bored.
    I've been listening to this album on and off for the past week and a half and in my opinion, this album is really good. I've always admired Outkast's originality: their music never sounds like anything anyone else has made or is making. "Idlewild", the musical companion to their movie of the same name, is no different but not as good as Speakerboxx/The Love Below. But it is still a very good album due to its style and funk. Dre and Big Boi only share about 3 songs in the whole album, and those 3 songs are amazing.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Innovative
    Outkast is the best. This is what rap needs more of. They don't talk about what they got and brag about their struggles feeling sorry for themselves, they just rap, and rap good. I like how they modernize the old blues style beats and make them good... it's like a new style of music kinda and it's tight. Outkast better win some awards for this. I definately recomend this to anyone who appriciates real rappers and rap as a form of art. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars 3-1/2 stars -- Not exactly sure what the rush was
    Admit it, guys: after catching how good Rihanna looked in the video for "Pon de Replay" and especially "If It's Lovin' That You Want", many of us were crushed to learn that she was only 17. But then I heard that she was already dropping her second album, A Girl Like Me, and the time between the release of this album and Music of the Sun was even shorter than the time between the release of DMX's Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood and It's Dark and Hell Is Hot. In other words, I didn't understand why Rihanna released this album so quickly; maybe it was to get out of her contract with Def Jam?
    2-0 out of 5 stars Room For Improvement
    Rihanna burst out on to the music scene in the summer of 2005 with her hit single "Pon De Replay". Her debut album, "Music Of The Sun", was released just 3 weeks after the single hit #3 on the Billboard Pop Chart. After a failed attempt at a second single, the repetative "If It's Lovin' The You Want", Def Jam brought in C-List producers Evan Rogers and Carl Sturken (Christina Aguilera) to produce the singers sophmore album.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Huge Surprise! Album actually is real good!
    One of the biggest surprises for me actually this year in terms of music. I mean we had some great offerings like Christina's Back to Basics, Nelly Furtado's Loose, and John Mayer's Continuum(also include India Arie, Mary J Blige, and Bob Dylan). And then we had some disappointments like Beyonce's BDay (come on now and JT -to his fans- is not impressing me either with "Sexyback"). And in terms of new artists the only ones that I had liked was Natasha Bedingfield, Chris Brown (my adolescent relatives got me hooked on that), and Carrie Underwood (yeah you read it!). The reason I'm throwing out names is because Rihanna the artist behind "Pon De Replay" was the last person recently I expected to make a good album, because in some cases I was right before (Ciara being an example for me). But in Rihanna's case I totally misjudged and was glad to have listened to the album. What I love most is the variety of songs in terms of genre (rock, pop, hip/hop, island, r&b). You'd think after listening to "SOS" it would sound all alike and then you're hit with the next two tracks sounding so different and yet good. This was not something you would expect considering her first island-dance album that failed to hit platinum. The album's production is very polished (another surprise) and enjoyable. Now Rihanna isn't the best singer but she knows her limits and tries to stay within them (unlike some artists who I will not name). I'd recommend it but it isn't for everybody. But it is fun and entertaining music. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    One thing you know you'll get from Franti and Spearhead is a certain kind of crystal clarity--on the production, musicianship, and, of course, in the righteous political message. Released two years after Franti traveled by himself to war-ravaged Baghdad, Gaza Strip, and the West Bank, each of these songs deals with the human cost of war poignantly and pointedly. The lyrics may seem simplistic when removed from the songs--"Those who start wars never fight them/And those who fight wars never like them" and "The F15 is a homicide bomber"--but very few artists have the honesty and balls that Franti does. Bless him for that. Spearhead might lose credibility with some by tying Peter Tosh's chant to "legalize it" to their call for revolution, but those folks are not in the target demographic, anyway. Those who are will thoroughly dig this. From the jam band accents of "Time to Go Home" to the reggae of "Light Up Ya Lighter" to the U2-ish ballad "I Know I'm Not Alone," it's easily Franti's best album yet. Read more

    BEP was one of my favorite hip-hop acts of the late 90's. Their Debut album "Behind the Front" and even their Sophomore album "Bridging the Gap" continued a musical approach and ideology more akin to Tribe Called Quest, Talib Kweli, De La Soul, and the Roots than the current Gangster Rap trend.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Shut Up and Sing
    First let me start my saying i'm a huge fan but man, this boy talks waaaaaaay too much. Soon as i get into a song, here he goes with, well, let me say this. Maybe it's the years locked up that makes him want to talk so much. I wonder if he realizes that people listen to the songs more than once. In my humble opinion, the first CD was better but this is a decent follow up. The boy has talent and be being a writer, i live by one rule, show dont tell. so shut up and sing.

    I am in love with this Cd I cant stop listening to it. This was a excellent cd. I can listen to all of the songs. The interludes are ok which at first I thought was stupid but it ran smoothly into the music. Everyone get this cd I guarentee that u will love this cd.

    4-0 out of 5 stars BUY IT!!
    Are the Red Hot Chili Peppers the best of the alternative-rock bands? This reviewer (who generally thinks alternative rock is an evil corporate piece of crap) says yes. And this is a great way to get into the group, containing all the big songs (Give It Away, Under the Bridge, Suck My Kiss, Breaking the Girl, Californiacation, Scar Tissue, Higher Ground), although there is one big mistake this album makes: WHERE IS THE ZEPHYR SONG? It sure as hell was a hit - in fact, it was a big one. And I loved it, unlike most other big rock hits of 2002. I also would've appreciated Aeroplane, as well as some of the older stuff (Johnny Kick a Hole in the Sky, True Men Don't Kill Coyotes, especially Knock Me Down). But I highly recommend this album, as well as the classic rock and funk that influenced the Chili Peppers.

    4-0 out of 5 stars its chili peppers, so you know its good
    however, its not what it could be. its missing some notable songs, including their biggest recent hit Can't Stop. it also has some fairly obscure 'hits' like Universally Speaking. however, it is a great album. although it may seem weird to consider the Red Hot Chili Peppers rock legends, they will be elligible for the rock and roll hall of fame in less than 3 years.

    A side project doesn't usually hit gold, especially when said project is a quirky virtual collective fronted by cartoon characters. But the first, self-titled album by Gorillaz--the brainchild of illustrator Jamie Hewlett and Blur frontman Damon Albarn--actually hit platinum and turned into a surprise worldwide hit. Naturally expectations were a lot higher for Gorillaz's sophomore effort, but Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars one of the best of our time
    This album is one of the best of our time. Integrating interesting drum riffs, symphonic arrangements, creative lyrics, musical sounds that inspire, all to create a mixed up style that breaks all barriers of genre and time. Truely a classic.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The music draws you in...
    The music is a unique mix that really draws you into what you are listening too.I was not crazy about the title (a little creepy) the CD was a great surprise, because I like everything on it!Great sounds and great listening!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars O Damon Albarn
    Being the second full record from Gorillaz, I was re-introduced to them after listening to "Feel Good Inc." millions of times, due to my Gorillaz-happy friend.I decided to check this one out and I was glad that I did.This is one of the best records of '05.No, it didn't pick up any Grammys and there is no real standout song apart from "Feel Good Inc." but it is very conisitent and diversified.

    Editorial Review

    You may not have heard of the name Ne-Yo before, but you've more than likely heard some of his lyrics--specifically, on Mario's massive hit, "Let Me Love You." This talented musician wrote for a number of chart-toppers before the age of 22, penning songs for Mary J. Blige, B2K, and Faith Evans as well. After working for others, Ne-Yo--a.k.a. Shaffer Smith--decided to focus on his own career. Judging by the quality of songs on this debut, his creative well is not running dry anytime soon. The kick-off single, "So Sick" showcases the same tenderness evident in his Mario hit, as does much of this slow-jam heavy CD. Smith also shines on the Michael Jackson-esque "Sign Me Up," giving props to the icon in the chorus by singing "I just wanna rock with you" with beat-fueled bravado. Ne-Yo's songs come from a love of seventies and eighties soul; as a result, his music contains some unique samples, including an O'Jays lick (on the sexy "Get Down Like That," and a Switch snippet (on "It Just Ain’t Right"). Surprisingly, for such a hooked-up songwriter, he has limited the number of guest performers on the disc to just one--rapper Peedi Peedi performs on the disc opener, "Stay." The depth of the final track, "Time," clinches the hunch; Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars His Own Words Work Well
    Something about Ne-yo's first single shouted this album is going to be hot. Hearing about other songs he's written for other artists made me crazy waiting for this release. When I first listened In My Own Words I was not disappointed because I thought every song was on point in every aspect especially the production. The limited guest appearances is what I love most about this and especially since it's his first, I can't stand when a new artist has a bunch of tracks with a bunch of other artists on it. His lyrics are different and he sings about things guys are always thinking but never sing about like the single When You're Mad. I think the only flaw in Ne-Yo's debut is that radio stations are playing his music way too much because it's really starting to make me hate this album. All in all this is a killer debut and with Ne-Yo's multitalented mind he's going be able to stick around for a long time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I am Ne-Yo biggest fan
    I love Ne-YO so much I will do anything for him.I will forever love Ne-Yo even when he might stop singing.WHICH HE BETTER NEVER ever do that in this whole entire world.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Made me fall in love withNe-yo.
    I'm not lying. I didn't think that this CD would get me the way it did, but I am singing all the songs and constantly playing the CD in my car. All the songs are quite soulful; he is a breath of fresh air for the crap that we've been hearing trying to passed off as R&B. He is the epitomy of how R&B should be! I love it. All the songs, as the others said, are each great singles.

    Stop the hating, folks! Just because the record doesn't match your preconceived notions of what you think the artist should do, doesn't mean you should lash out. Think of all the great musicians and other artists who were pilloried in their day for branching out in a new direction - only to have history vindicate their efforts! Think about it!

    1-0 out of 5 stars pure rubbish...
    I've been a fan of Dj Shadow from the very first album, and have followed him since then. I was super excited to see a new release from him, but upon seeing a few bad reviews, I had to investigate for myself. I sampled each track intently waiting for that wonderfully eclectic sound that Dj Shadow is so famous for... however I was never satisfied. This cd reminds me of a mix you might be handed after a rap concert. Its not worth going into analyzing each track, because its simply a waste of time. My only side 'comment' is that Dj Shadow has been in the game for so long that he probably tried something different, and it failed...just be patient and wait for the next (hopefully better) release.

    4-0 out of 5 stars So it's not earlier Shadow...it's still a fine album
    This album is quite a bit heavier with guest Hip Hop appearances than any of Shadow's previous work. I believe that explains all the negative reviews. Some Shadow fans simply aren't Hip Hop fans...sad as that may be (Q Tip was quite the nice suprise on this one). Those seeking the tripped out days of Entroducing won't find it here. That said, I still enjoy the hell out of this album. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that it didn't get me going quite enough for an immediate repeat listen; with the exception being Track 10...good stuff right there. My recommendation, take a sample listen to the tracks. Too "Hip Hop" for you?....then walk on, but I doubt that'll be the case. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    It's understandable when artists want to grow their fan base in order to more easily make a living and also reach a larger group of listeners. The trick, of course, is how to do this without releasing artistically compromised records that, well, suck. L.A. underground vets J5 were almost a supergroup from the start, combining the formidable talents of the Unity and Rebels of Rhythm crews. If anyone deserves to move beyond the backpack clique, it's them (well, and Aceyalone). And while no one's going to condemn the band for pulling a Black Eyed Peas here, it's hard to imagine really listening to this album as much as its two predecessors, either. Take the lead single, "Work It Out": the jam has a smoove, down-tempo vibe that's nice enough, and the Dave Matthews vocal on the chorus is pretty excellent. But the lyrics--which deal with not only let's-get-back-together-baby material, but also vaguely PC hip-hop--never gel. It makes one yearn for the actual Daisy Age. There are a few outstanding tracks, but overall this is a hip-hop album that sounds as if it were written by a corporate committee--each song directed at a particular demographic--rather than a mini-manifesto crafted to get your fists pumping and/or your feet moving.

    Jurassic 5 - Feedback (Interscope, 2006)
    1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible!
    As a (once) big Jurassic 5 fan, I couldn't believe how terrible this album was.The lyircs got old fast, the beats were boring and like another reviewer mentioned, I got sick of the whole "girl/getting over shyness" type of songs.This album reminded me of a no-name group that wants to get big fast so their label puts a whole bunch of big name stars on the album to gain more fans and radio play...NOT what I would expect from a solid group like J5 at all!
    3-0 out of 5 stars Not The Best 'Feedback'....But Lyrics Hold It Together
    Jurassic 5 consist of Akil, Zaakir, Mark 7even, DJ Nu-Mark, Chali 2na (Cut Chemist is reportedly no longer with the group in order to pursue solo aspirations).The crew has been rockin' on the hip-hop scene since 1999 with a signature sound that the crew's fan base has come to appreciate over the years.Put on Quality Control or Power In Numbers and you hear a unique intermingling of turntable wizardry, well thought lyrics, and synchronized choruses.Having four rapping emcees would normally complicate songs, but Jurassic 5 pulls it off every time.But with the musical influence of Cut Chemist missing from their latest album Feedback, the crew resorts to Dj Nu-Mark for a few tracks as well as other producers.Unfortunately for them, this proves to be almost disastrous for the project.

    Editorial Review

    It may be too cynical to assume Hybrid Theory changed its name to Linkin Park in order to appear right next to Limp Bizkit in your local record bin. But rock-rap workouts like "One Step Closer" and "Papercut" do make Linkin Park a comfortable fit with Fred Durst and his ilk. Producer Don Gilmore (Pearl Jam, Lit, Eve 6) and twin vocal threats Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda serve up industrial-strength rap and rock melodicism with equal aplomb on this woulda-been-self-titled debut effort. "Points of Authority" aims to sound like Trent Reznor wanking it up with Lars and company, whereas guitarist Brad Delson's Edge-y harmonics help "In the End" and "Pushing Me Away" evoke a dark romanticism akin to A Perfect Circle. Curiously, the band gets by with no bass player, while sample-happy DJ Joseph Hahn's step into the spotlight on the instrumental "Cure for the Itch" suggests a potential for eclecticism that could help Linkin Park outlive its seemingly transient genre.

    5-0 out of 5 stars angry why Wait?
    Maybe this is angry music, but its not anger contained and bottled and packed in an album with some metro scrawl cover art to envoke nu hipsters into buying another release of angry music. What I'm saying is these songs will having you singing along like a cat in a ball of yarn in no time. From the first to the last track, nothing but exceptional, and the best vocal delviery of the century! Voicing the truth that I as a listener am futile in any attempt to voice my true inner emotions that fuel my anger, atleast unable to voice those emotions as long as I have this cd playing loudly.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Linkin Park's Theory
    The rap techno group Linkin Park made their debut back in late 2000. The band consisted of two singers, a tenor and barritone. A drummer, bassist, guitarists, and a talented keyboardist back up the two singers with their rhymes. Linkin Park has a very distinct sound of a rap lyrics sung on top of heavy electronical rock progressions. The end product is well worth hearing and HYBRID THEORY is a great piece of work for this type of genre. The rhythm section is not anything really special for this record, but it works for the very melodic vocals given by Chester Bennington. The thing about this album, is that its sound was still in the experimental stage. It is a major work that helped pave the way for future techno fusion genres. HYBRID THEORY is a good album, and one that should be given some attention.
    1-0 out of 5 stars not rebellious or challenging
    this cd sounds like anything else in the past 10 years: 4 chorded pop punk, simular vocal melodies that follow the expected pop sound, and the worst and most cliche lyrics ever.
