4.0 out of 5 stars What a debut....., May 12, 2003
This review is from: Fallen (Audio CD)
Before buying this cd, I read some reviews for this album and there were no reviews which explored individual songs on this album. So i will.
1) Going Under> A great song. Easy to listen to, catchy verse and great chorus. Relies more on amy's voice then instrumental. 4/5
2) Bring Me to Life> The single. Everybody loves it. 4.5/5
3) Everybody's Fool> Not a stand out and grows old in quick time. 3/5
4) My Immortal> This is the slowest song on the album and a stand out. The chorus is beautiful and emotive and I often find myself repeating this song. Brilliant. 5/5
5) Haunted> A dark, eerie intro which is awesome and the title fits the song. The first verse falling into the chorus sounds so good. A great chorus. 4.5/5
6) Torniquet> I love ben's intro and Amy's voice in the verses is very different from other songs and is so effective. The chorus is ok, but does grow old. 3.5/5
7) Imaginary> Not the best song. A great intro with strings and the best bridge in the album. 3.5/5
8) Taking Over Me> Another great song. Good chorus with lyrics to match. 4/5
9) Hello> A slow song but in contrary to my Immortal this song is painfully bad. The only dissapointment in the album. 1/5
10)My Last breath> Love this song. Particurly the guitars and the chorus. One that grows on you the more times you listen to it. 4.5/5
11) Whisper> My favourite. Instrumental, lyrics, chorus, vocals are all 5/5. 5.5
Fallen is a magical debut album. Evanescence for a new band has produced a brilliant original album which gradually grows on you more and more. Tracks 2,4,10 and 11 are stand outs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is this their second album of PERFECTION?, May 8, 2003
This review is from: Meteora (Audio CD)
How does linkin park do it. meteora has excelled all my expectations as I could not believe they could match the brilliance of hybrid theory....But they did.
Track overview.
01.This is an awsome start to any album and blends perfectly with track 2.
02.Don't Stay- A great opener, fast and hard. The chourus grows on you but it is the brigde which stands out and you find yourself yelling with chester. 3.5/5
03.Somewhere I Belong- The single. The intro to this song is so addictive i find myself playing it over and over again. Good song, not the best. 4/5
04.Lying from you-Chester's voice in this song is so powerful and it is impossible not to yell with him. The chorus is again awesome but is let down by the rap. 3.5/5
05.Hit the floor- the major dissapointer of the album. The rap is to similar to previous efforts and the chourus offers very little. 2/5
06.Easier to Run- this chorus is one of the best in the album and blends perfectly with the brige at the end. One of my favourites. 4.5/5
07.Faint- The best song on the album. The intro is incredible and the rap blends so well with chester's chorus. A hard song with the best yelling bridge on the album. 5/5
08 Figure .09- Good song. the chorus isn't as catchy as others but the rap is a stand out. Not original enough. 3/5
09 Breaking the habit- An original an unlike any of their other songs. A quiet song in comparison and the opening scratch with the strings is awesome. Good for a change. 4/5
10.From the Inside- A major stand out. I love this chorus. It has awesome lyrics and is easy to sing with. The best mix of rap and singing to date with an awesome brige. 5/5
11.Nobody's Listening-Again very different.the intro with the pipes sounds sweet. Good rap. Good Chorus. 4/5
12.Session- Dissapointing. Nothing compared to track 11 on hybrid theory where Mr Hahn went off. 1/5
13.Numb- Another great song, easy flowing and again good to sing with. Great lyrics, another favourite, good closer. 4.5/5
*** An awsome album...linkin park has created another masterpeice with every intro being different from the next but being so effective.
