Building on the success of their Grammy-winning blockbuster debut, Hybrid Theory, California rap-rockers Linkin Park have recruited a team of pals from rock bands (Orgy, Staind) and hip-hop groups (the Roots, Dilated Peoples) to reinvigorate tracks from that album, as well as the non-LP cuts "High Voltage" and "My December." It's a must-have for fans.

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The remix album -- the time-honored tradition of buying time between records. Often, these are inconsequential affairs Limp Bizkit's New Old Songs leaps to mind, for some reason, but if a band is smart, they can use this time-buying ploy to their advantage, redefining their sound somewhat, or at least reaching out for that elusive street credibility. The latter option is especially true for bands that have a big, big chart hit on their hands but little critical respect or reputation as a hip band. Which brings us to Linkin Park's Reanimation, a generous 20-track remix record of their debut Hybrid Theory that the band has vaguely alluded to as their art project. That means the group has left the hamfisted alt-metal of their debut behind, turning this record over to rappers, remixers, DJs, and assorted producers to give it a darkly hip, electronic edge. This may not be particularly pleasing to those who loved the angst-ridden rock theatrics of the debut, but it's a damn sight more interesting than that debut, helping Linkin Park distinguish themselves from the adolescently tortured rap-rock pack. The paradox is, of course, that the band sounds more original when filtered through the likes of Kutmasta Kurt, Alchemist, Pharoahe Monch, Aceyalone, and Jonathan Davis, among others, but any change is welcome, really well, apart from the apparent decision to leave grammar and spelling behind; every song title is an "arty" interpretation of the original title -- "Paper Cut" is "Ppr:Kut," "Cure for the Itch" is "Kyur4 th Ich," etc. -- resulting in a silly mish-mash of letters and numerals. Some of this works quite well, some of it is kind of juvenile really, does Motion Man need to repeat "Linkin Park -- remix" over and over again on his rap?, much of it is only slightly recognizable from the original, it's too long, and compared to contemporary arty rock Radiohead, Flaming Lips, Clinic, Trail of Dead, System of a Down, Interpol, etc., it really isn't that arty. But, compared to what they've done before, and compared to their peers, Reanimation is arty and a welcome step in the right direction.
Rolling Stone - Rob Sheffield
Linkin Park have opened the remix-project door in a calculating but earnest effort to establish their underground hip-hop art cred: Reanimation is basically the Pro Tools era's answer to G N'R Lies.
Spin Magazine - Will Hermes
Ultimately, the set is a little schizo, but it channels enough rap-rock frisson to make it more than just a between-albums snack. (7)
Vibe
1/2 Reanimation's cross-pollination of high-level lyricism, trunk-rattling beats, heavy-metal riffs, and hard-core vocals makes for a rousing listening experience. Delany Biko

    Beyond Your Average Remix

    Reamination uncovers the hidden beats under the brilliant lyrics of Hybrid Theory. LP did a terrific job picking out the guest appearances (Jay Gordon, Aaron Lewis, Stephen Richards, Black Thought) and creating a more underground hip hop atmosphere. However, in creating that atmosphere, they didn't forgot to acknowledge their roots, having the same heavy guitar feel appearanced on the Hybrid Theory album. KRLWNG exposed a beautiful harmony created by Staind's frontman Aaron Lewis & Chester Bennington that was completely hidden on Hybrid theory. Makes you appreciate the Grammy award winning track. LP creatively reinvented themselves, drawing fans from both sides of the arena of rock and hip hop. Long Live the creativity and lyrics of Linkin Park.

    Well, this was the first Linkin Park CD I ever got. It may have been a mistake to get the remixes before the originals, because some of the remixes are SO much better than the originals. I listen to this CD when I go to bed!THATS HOW GOOD IT IS!!!

    the new and old fuse

    if you liked hybrid theory, youll definatly love this. Personaly, I never have got sick of hybrid theory, yet was anxious for linkin park to release a new album. Ever since I listened to reanimation, I was hooked, and will never be unhooked. It has all your favorite songs from hybrid theory, but better. In the best way I can explain it, you can expect whats coming next in each song, but yet its all new. This CD made me love linkin park even more; and I think is a good CD for all linkin park listeners and those like them.

    Linkin Park does it again!

    I first saw the preview on their website and I thought " What the hell, I didn't know they were coming out with a new CD." Then I saw it in stores and I bought it like one day after it came out, anyways if you liked Hybrid Theory, then you will definetly love Reanimation.

    Remixes can be great at time...

    Ive waited for almost two years for new music, and this is what i get: a great CD full of remixes. Yes, its great. Not as great as the original, but definately great. Hybrid Theory was beyond great, and this is a good follow up. Keep it up LP, but please, bring some new stuff next time

    REANIMATION NOT THE SAME THING AS HYBRID THEORY

    when i told my friends about REANIMATION they were like "the remixes suck" and "when are they coming out w/ new songS" First of all this album features new songs such as My december and high voltage plus, despite what has been said, the remixes are awesome. USing new mixers and artists such as Jonathan Davis from KoRN, Aaron Lewis from Staind and Stephen Richards from taproot, the songs become totally different from the originals!

    Remix Malfunction

    The album sounds great. But there are places where you can't help thinking it was never meant to sound like that.

    It's not what you think!

    Though the reanimation is a remix cd it does have a few new songs on it. The CD when to No. 2 on the pop charts in its first week. Need I remind you a remixed CD goes to No. 2 it has to be good; and it is. Most people will stereotype this as a remixed CD and ladel it not worth of their time. Linkin Park has put out a good first CD, so good 4 music videos where made for Papercut, Crawling, One Step Closer, and of course In the End. Not many bands are privaleged to have this said about their songs. Reanimation, though a remixed album, is a very well put together album. Useing up to about 20 different artist to help with the Reanimation and its popularity. This CD has further inspired, and impressed me since the Hybrid Theory. Also to add Linkin Park is working on their next CD and is undicided on the date of releasal. Impressed by Linkin Park I will buy this next CD and hope to be as, no I know it will be better than the previous two.

    I can't turn this CD off

    I'm going to admit it right here and now--the first time I heard the singles by Linkin Park I thought they were about as impressive as giving a colonic to an aged St. Bernard. However, when I finally listened to the entire CD and heard the underlying themes together, the music of Linkin Park got into my skin. I'm not a fan of rap. The only two rap tapes I ever bought were both by MC Hammer, and that was 14 years ago when he was still cool. The fusion of Linkin Park's rap, rock and metal styles is a toe-tapping, head-banging infection that so far there is no cure to, but there are medications you can take to offset the side effects for a few days at the most. For all their glory, Hybrid Theory had some faults--track eleven (Cure for the Itch) seemingly out of place, and some songs seemed like they should have been in a different order (to perpetuate the theme of romantic rejection, paranoia, insanity and eventual overcoming-of-uselessness). It seemed heretical, however, to reorder my playlist to suit what I think is a proper ordering of songs. So imagine my thrill when I heard that Reanimation was coming out. How do I, or how can anyone, describe Reanimation? Take all the Linkin Park songs you know and a few you don't, put them in a blender with half-a-dozen gangsters and a death metal band, hit the ''Frappe'' button for three seconds, and then pour out the chunky remains into sixteen odd-sized glasses and mugs from the bottom shelf of your kitchen cabinet. Shuffle the glasses around and drink them down. What you get is a delicious combination of flavors, all of them similar yet different in their own special way. What the various artists on Reanimation have done is taken the themes of Hybrid Theory and grafted their own styles atop it. Play this CD in a car with an awesome sound system and a huge subwoofer, as loud as you can stand it, and drive somewhere an hour away. Don't hit the fast-forward button because you'll miss something if you do. Listen and enjoy. Maybe you'll be like me and find many of the tracks several degrees better than the originals.

    Pretty good.....but not up to their earlier standards!

    It's an ok album. Most of the remixes are, ummm, interesting would be the right word I guess. They went from being an alternative band to a hip-hop/rap band. I listened to Hybrid Theory to get away from traditional rap. Next album had better be better than this one!!!

    The Hybird flew high in the sky but another flew back even higher.

    Linkin Park's comeback over their last album-Hybird Theory was fantastic. There last album is good too, but I'm going to talk about 'Reanimation'. It is exquisit and fantastic how well the remixes and the new songs and interludes are. You gotta get this c.d. right away.

    The Linkin Park has finally returned to save us all from this period of musical drought!!!!!!

    Linkin Park: [Reanimation] is superb! Nothing can compare to this album except maybe Hybrid Theory. Although a lot different from Hybrid Theory it is still awsome and remember, it is a remix album, so duh! It is going to be a bit different. Still, every single person should go out and get this albumand let it surpass the Hybrid Theory mark! Lets get 10 times platinum or more if possible. Linkin Park forever!!!!!!!

    REANIMATE your life!!!

    Hey, I bought LP's CD the first it came out on July 20, 2K2. The CD is InSaNe. Mike Shinoda spits out his lyrics and Chester Bennington sounds crazy. There the best band out there. Just sit back and watch ''Rock and Hip-Hop collide''.
