  • Summary: This long-awaited follow-up to 2000's 'Hybrid Theory' contains 12 new tracks co-produced by Don Gilmore.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 13
  2. Negative: 0 out of 13
  1. Through it all, the guys stay just as tight (translation: radio-ready) as ever, offering up tracks in near-perfect three-minute doses.
  2. A thunderously hooky album that seamlessly blends the group's disparate sonic elements into radio-friendly perfection.
  3. Isn't so much a revelation as it is a ready-made crowd pleaser that delivers on the familiar.
  4. Meteora is less an artistic endeavour than an exercise in target marketing. [May 2003, p.104]
  5. The similarity of Meteroa to Hybrid Theory does not only raise the question of where do they go from here, but whether there is a place for them to go at all.
  6. 60
    Harder, denser, uglier. [#15, p.128]
  7. Mercifully brief but mercilessly repetitive, Meteora is little more than a tolerable rehash of a formula that's been on the wrong side of its sell-by date for some time now.
