Linkin Park Reanimation on 2LP
2002 Remix Album
Raising the game on remix albums, 2002's Reanimation completely revamps tracks from Linkin Park's 2001 best selling album, Hybrid Theory, each of which are given new identities sonically distilled for the listener to discover. From the band's abrasive guitar work to their turntable acrobatics, Reanimation includes fresh reinterpretations of favorites "Points of Authority," "In The End," "Crawling" and "One Step Closer." Linkin Park recruited a host of underground hip-hop pioneers whom guest-appear on Reanimation including Alchemist, Chali 2NA, Pharoahe Monch, Evidence and DJ Babu (Dilated Peoples), and Aceyalone. Staind's Aaron Lewis performs a solemn and emotionally charged duet with vocalist Chester Bennington on "Crawling" adding atmospheric violins and cello.
