Linkin Park - Burn It Down

Biography

Although rooted in alternative metal, Linkin Park became one of the most successful acts of the 2000s by welcoming elements of hip-hop, modern rock, and atmospheric electronica into their music. The band's rise was indebted to the aggressive rap-rock movement made popular by the likes of Korn and Limp Bizkit, a movement that paired grunge's alienation with a bold, buzzing soundtrack. ...

4.0 out of 5 stars A Solid EP December 31, 2008
By G. Chen
Format:Audio CD
As an intro, Songs from the Underground consists of six popular Linkin Park Underground (fan site exclusive) tracks from the past seven years and two never-released live tracks ("Hunger Strike" and "My December").

The EP itself was an enjoyable listen that brought back some good memories. Most of the songs could fit right in with Hybrid Theory and Meteora tracks.

"Announcement Service Public" is a short instrumental intro track, nothing special.
"QWERTY" is my personal favorite, a track with Chester's signature screams and actual rapping from Mike Shinoda. Really reminded me of the Hybrid Theory years.
"And One" is also a solid track, reminiscent of Hybrid Theory songs.
"Sold My Soul to Yo Mama is one of LP's signature instrumental tracks, with snippets of "Papercut" and some serious beats/scratches.
"Dedicated" is another standout song, with Mike Shinoda rapping throughout. Similar to "Hands Held High" but "dedicated to the kids/Dedicated to wherever music lives."
"Hunger Strike" is actually a live version sung by Chris Cornell featuring Chester.
"My December" is a piano version, recorded live during the Projekt Revolution 2008 tour. A very nice performance, with Chester belting out the lyrics with angst and desire.
"Part of Me" is the last song, another Hybrid Theory era track. A good end to the EP, with a hidden instrumental at the end of the song.

Overall, this is EP is well put together, ideal for LP fans who have not heard these songs through Linkin Park Underground.
It's also just a good CD to listen to if a wave of nostalgia hits from listening to newer LP songs. This was Linkin Park at its earliest, arguably at its finest. Respect and remember.

5.0 out of 5 stars Songs from the underground EP July 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is really good stuff from Linkin Park. Though I already had a few of these songs in my collection, I really appreciate the selection and the composition of the 8-song e.p..This music is as cool and slick as anything from Linkin Park yet.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Great Opportunity Passed Up... May 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD
If you're familiar with with just how deep Linkin Park's discography goes, you'll notice that there's plenty of essentials missing from Linkin Park's expansive and ever growing Underground series. Its a fair starter if you haven't heard any of these fine rarities before. But at only eight tracks, it feels like a great opportunity was passed up -- especially seeing how difficult it is to obtain any of the LPU releases. Where is "High Voltage"? Where is their live performance of "Reading My Eyes"? And what about the fantastic Crystal Method remix of "Points of Authority"? The list could go on and on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review - Linkin Park "Songs From the Underground EP" December 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First of all I'm a huge Linkin Park fan and I dig pretty deep to find rare tracks and releases.

Track 1 "Announcement Public Service" - Piano and effected drums make this track sound like it would have been released on LP's third album, Minutes to Midnight. Chester's muffled background screaming make any possible lyrics undecipherable.
Track 2 "Qwerty (Studio Version)" - Starts heavy and sounds characteristic of LP's early work (between Chester's and Mike's alternating vocals and rapping). Great track. Doesn't sound like the mixing process was 100% done when the track was put on the album.
Track 3 "And One" - Also characteristic of LP's early work. Sounds like a second track enters about 3:00 in. Great work by Mr. Hahn. Fully mixed and sounds like pretty good track.
Track 4 "Sold My Soul To Yo Mama" - Very obviously an early or remixed version of Papercut (Hybrid Theory). Lots of effects by Mr. Hahn.
Track 5 Dedicated (Demo 1999)" - Fully mixed track featuring vocals rapped exclusively by Mike Shinoda. Effected rap drum beat, lots of Mr. Hahn goodness too.
Track 6 "Hunger Strike [Live]" - The well known Chris Cornell track performed live featuring Chester Bennington of Linkin Park. Love it, downside is that this track would not synch to my iPod.
Track 7 "My December [Live]" - LP-style piano and vocals make an amazing slow song. Easily one of LP's best slow songs, hands down.
Track 8 "Part of Me" - Heavy guitar and rap vocals (Mike Shinoda) make a great classical LP-sounding track. Good balance of rap and singing. Hidden track starts at approximately 10:00. (All instrumental effects and drums track)

Overall this album was a rock 'n rollin good time. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
I'm The Pilot, and this product is PILOT-APPROVED!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album February 2, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great album! I've been wanting it for quite some time. As an avid Linkin Park fan, obtaining this album was a must. This CD is a compilation album consisting entirely of tracks that were included in previous LPU CDs (all of which I still don't have). On this CD: 4 out of the 8 songs in it's tracklist are actual songs (QWERTY, Dedicated, And One, and Part Of Me), 2 tracks are instrumentals (Announcement Service Public, and Sold My Soul To Yo Mama), and the remaining 2 tracks are live recordings (Hunger Strike, and My December). My personal favorite on this record is "QWERTY". It's so freakin' brutal! It's probably the heaviest track LP has ever made. Another track I really enjoyed was "Part Of Me". It's a really dark song with great rap vocals from Mike. Also, at the end of Part Of Me, there's a hidden instrumental track that starts playing (meaning that this album has a total of 9 tracks). So if you're an LP fan that wants to add a couple more songs to your collection, I definitely recommend getting this CD. You won't be disappointed c:
