Linkin Park rocks!
Laura Leigh
In CD song order (from best to least best) I like # 8, 5, 4, 12, 9, 6, 1, 7, 10, 2, 3, and 11.
Every song on the album is good, most of them are great.

Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory is one of the greatest albums I have ever heard. I think that putting High Voltage and My December on Hybrid Theory and adding 20 dollars, is not a waste of money,(especially if you have the original album, you should) but I think your money could be better spent. I have attended a concert of theirs and seen exactly what they're capable of. Not only have I heard Hybrid Theory about a thousand times, I have searched for other songs of theirs. When I saw they released Hybrid Theory with two bonus tracks, I was a little amazed. High Voltage and My December are great songs, but the greatest was left out. "And One," a song that they played at the concert I attended, is a GREAT song by them; I believe this song should have been on the original album. The band played this song when they were called Hybrid Theory, not yet Linkin Park. I believe that other songs like Part of Me, Step Up, High Voltage, My December, Carousel, and And One, should be all on a seperate import. Since this hasn't been released yet, these songs can be found and downloaded. I suggest that if you're a TRUE Linkin Park fan, you should track down these songs. If you're someone who just likes the song Crawling and wants the cd, these two bonus tracks won't do much for you! I would give a 5+ for the original Hybrid Theory album, and their other unreleased songs, but for the two bonus tracks for 20 more dollars, I will give an overall rating of 4.

Whether rock-rap or rapcore is going to live on for awhile or die off and fly into history next to other music genres that were short-lived remains speculated over constantly. I, personally, think that rock-rap will live on as long as it wants if talented artists like Linkin Park stay behind the wheel of it's driving force. Before anyone dares to stereotype this and throw it on the shelf next to their dust-growing albums of the same type, or their "got way too old, way too fast" Limp Bizkit CD's, this album DEFINITELY deserves several listens, although just one spin should get you hooked. How, you might ask? It's as simple as the fact that this is one of those rare albums where there simply is not a bad song on the entire thing. One can spin the entire CD without coming across a skippable track or a gut-wretching, space-filling interlude, which can't be said about too many groups in this style of music. Strictly no-BS here.
Leading the front of the group are Chester Bennington, with an amazing voice that would make Maynard James Keenan of Tool jealous, but with enough ferocity to scream his heart out on the level of some of today's loudest metal bands. Such a contrast is rare. Putting forth just as much contribution, and an equal frontman along Chester, is Mike Shinoda, strictly in charge of rap lyrics, who has the flowing ability, if not better, of most hip-hop artists. The crunching guitars of Brad Delson bring the rock part of the album to life, while Rob Bourdon's steady and fast-paced drums keep the beats so in check and so hip-hop oriented that one would swear it is a drum machine at points. However, the most bragging rights go to Joseph Hahn, the band's DJ.

I am 27 years old. I grew up with metal like Black Sabbath, Napalm Death, Megadeth, (early)Metallica, TOOL, Judas Priest, and Iron Maiden. I avoided Linkin Park like the plague thinking that their all too friendly MTV image would not satisfy my most primal metal urges. I was wrong. It is indeed rare to find a debut album of such complexity and richness. Hybrid Theory plays as a complete album, there are no throw away tracks here. I wasn't sure I liked Chester Bennington's voice at first but after hearing "Crawling" a few times I came to realize that he's got a great voice. He's no Rob Halford or Bruce Dickinson but he's up there amongst today's vocalists (except for Serj from System of a Down). This cd is a true "hybrid" of metal and hip-hop influences. Linkin Park uses two vocalists, one singing and one rapping along with a dj and the results are spectacular. The best two tracks are A Place for My Head and Forgotten but all of the other tracks are way above average. So if you've shown slight interest into this band but have shyed away because of their link to commercial interests, I say take the plunge it's well worth it. Hybrid Theory will be the first of many important releases from this band. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I heard "One Step Closer" on the radio after i bought this CD. I actually had never played it, but now I play it so much that the bottom is scratched all over! It still plays. Well anyway, the album is very very good for nu-metal fans. The songs are rated below:

#1: Papercut: Intense start, emotional finish, rapped throughout. A great song, powerful intro. (9/10)
#2: One Step Closer: The hardest song on the CD. Free of rapping. Very intense; the second best on the CD. (10/10)
#3: With You: Very rythmatic, with a lot of beats and scratching in the background. Nice song. (8/10)
#4: Points of Authority: No raps except the beginning and the 2:15 mark. Great work. (9/10)
#5: Crawling: Awesome work, I think its about some mental patient. 3rd best. (10/10)
#6: Runaway: Not very good for their standard, but still a good song; all about betrayal. Nice. (7/10)
#7: By Myself: A sleepy rap, nice job, with what seems like a crash in the background (9/10)
#8: In the End: DEFINITELY THE BEST!!! One of the best nu-metal songs ever. Rapped and rocked in various spots. (10/10)
#9: A Place For My Head: Mostly rapped, very rapid fire style, about being used by people. (8/10)
#10: Forgotten: A hard rap about tough times. (9/10)
#11: Cure for the Itch: Record sampling all about rythyms and beats. No singing, just the DJ at work. (8/10)
#12: Pushing Me Away: Lighter rock, only a little rapping.
This is the 4th best. (10/10)
This was an awesome CD that you just don't want to stop playing. If you even remotely like to listen to rock or nu-metal, this is the Cd that will get you listening all the time. It is a great album and worth every last penny you pay for it!
