Linkin Park Albums
Linkin Park albums are typically filled with mellow hip-hop sounds, along with fast-tempo heavy metal listening. With such a diverse musical taste and fascinating lyrics, Linkin Park is proved to be the face of nu-metal.
Released in 2000, and becoming the epitome of nu-metal, "Hybrid Theory" redefined mainstream music. With hits like "Papercut," "Crawling," and "In The End," it's no wonder that Hybrid Theory topped the music charts. The group proves that they are full of talent and complexity, combining rap, metal, and techno together to create one incredible album.
This particular album, released in 2003, has more of a rap/hip-hop feel to it. Simple bass lines, guitar riffs similar to those in "Hybrid Theory," combined with different loops, "Meteora" provides listeners with catchy tunes to play on their stereo systems and MP3 players. "Nobody's Listening" is arguably the best song on the album.
"Minutes to Midnight"
While Minutes to Midnight doesn't exactly live up to "Hybrid Theory", Linkin Park proves that they're still just as musically inclined. The album is filled with songs for every mood, from down and out to angry and frustrated. Lyrics are catchy and while Mike Shinoda isn't present in every song, he unleashes his undeniably fascinating flow in "Bleed It Out."
"A Thousand Suns"
If you've listened to all of Linkin Park's previous albums, you will find that "A Thousand Suns" is much different in terms of lyrics and sound. Songs on the album are more touching and deep than before, covering topics such as living, loving, and losing. Mike Shinoda has no difficulty in presenting perhaps his best performance on "A Thousand Suns."
Unlike Linkin Park's previous albums, "Reanimation" has quite a different feel, leaning more toward the hip-hop genre. Rock fans should rest assured that there is enough guitar riffs to keep them satisfied. The album provides incredible remixes including collaborations from Korn, Orgy, and Staind.
