Meteora

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by Claga, Mar 28, 2003.


  1. Just brought Linkin Park's new album Meteora. I've Listened to it about 7 or 8 times already and i have to say it is quite a good listen (if your into this style of music).

    Anybody who enjoyed hybrid theory should definately pick this one up. Check out tracks 3, 6, 10 and 13.

    Anybody else heard this cd yet? I'd like to hear what some other poeple think...

    Yah, i like it better lyrically and musically than Hybrid theory. I picked up the cd plus DVD for $15 at best buy..can't beat that. Don't stay (2) and Breaking the Habit(9) are my favs off the cd, much because I just got out of a painful breakup, lol. I really liek the rythm and flute samples in Nobody's Listening (11). The whole cd just kind of screams "bad breakup"...come to think of it, so did Hybrid theory..these guys must be in some serious pain here, LOL. I like the fact that they are intelligent enough to express their feelings fluently without profanities-it kidna makes them different from most of their genre. The coolest thing I noticed- there are now 6 members, nto 5- they added a REAL BASSIST! Can't remember what hsi name is, but he plays a red MM Stingray, and a white Sadowsky jazz. :D Overall, excellent cd- well thought out- I'm glad they took their time instead of puking out a quick second album to follow all there fast success.

    Sounds like typical Nu-metal to me. Have some guy rap and have some guy scream/bitch about stuff. Not a fan of Linkin Park.

    haha yah exactly what I thought when re-animation came out. I got teh feeling reanimation was just a quick vop-out to make everyone happy that was waiting for a new album while they worked on the real thing, lol. I actaully liked it better than the original though..I never bought hybrid theory. Nothing LP is doing is all that orignial or anything, I just thought the cd did exactly what teh band wanted it to- they knwe what they wanted and put it togather. I don't listen to much nu-metal, they have a fair amount of beats and electonic stuff and such I like. I don't claim that everything I like is good, I like some crap, lol, but I like a lot of stuff like jaco, wooten, mingus, etc...just depends on what I feel like on any given day.

    That remix CD is what made me decide that I hated Linkin Park... hey guys, it's taking us too long to write new material... but I want money now... what should we do? :spit:
     
  7. Hate to break it to you, but I can guarantee with near-100% surety that the remix CD was a project initiated at the behest of their record label.

    *steps off throne*
    I like this CD...track 11 has a sweet (!!!) feel to it...I'm thinking about rewriting good bass/guitar lines to it...the CD as a whole is great, as I mentioned. Better than Hybrid theory, by far IMO....the fact that they added a new/real (however you wanna put it) bassist seems to have had a big effect on the band as a whole, maybe he brought some ideas? I don't know....

    About the Reanimation thing, I like it better that Hybrid as well, and kinda doubt that they did it just for the money, though it prolly had influence there. I got to see these guys open at a concert awhile ago, and they kicked live as well. I hope to catch them sometime.

    I'm not too found of PA. Everyone around here seems to hate everyone else... so I'm proud to make PA look bad. It's not everyone, but a lot of people if you smile or wave at them their instant reaction is what the **** do you want? I know it happens a lot across the US... I guess I'm spoiled, I spent a summer in North Carolina where everyone was lovely... :meh: I'd love to change the world... but I don't know what to do.

    Hybrid Theroy did have a couple good songs. Due to the fact that the only place I heard the CD was in my friend Dave's car, he played it all the time. But we never knew song titles. So I made up titles for the songs...

    I liked "Weird Pausy Song" and "Screamy Awful Guitar Song."

    Yeah, PA does absolutly suck, espically around here. This could turn into a huge rant about PA, but I'll try to keep it short ;). Mostly it just sucks cos there is actually NOTHING to do, espically when the closest person to you is a half mile away...(makes good for jams though...mmm loud). I guess it's like everyplace, has it's ups and it's downs...I think it has many more downs though....

    SM -- where you at in relation to Johnstown/Summerhill Pa?
