    Pushing me away

by Benedikt Niederschmid (15.01.2001) Three weeks after the release of "Hybrid theory" in the U.S., it had reached ì Gold status already! Reason enough to listen to what kind of new heroes have ì been chosen in the States this time. And indeed, the debut of Linkin Park ì should hit this side of the Atlantic like a bomb, too. "Hybrid theory" is a ì completely succeeded and loveable Metal-package. The guys around shouter ì Chester Bennington and MC Mike Shinoda combine influences of modern New-ì Metal-disciplines ("By myself"), traditional Rap Metal and melodies that ì sometimes remind me of the all-too-clear compositions of the 80's ì ("Runaway") to one sovereign and emotional cocktail. For the powerful ì groove-shell "With you", Linkin Park were assisted by the Dust Brothers ì (e.g. Soundtrack for "Fight Club"). And despite their love for the ì possibilkies of modern sampling, electronics do not play a major role on ì this album. The main protagonist is the complete work - and that has ì definitely convinced me! (Benedikt Niederschmid - 02/01)
