  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.

    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. Blender

    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.

    Quit complaining about LP sounding the same. AC/DC sounds the same on most records but nobody says anything about it..

    A great addition to any fan of Linkin Parks CD collection, but they should have just named it Hybrid Theory Part 2. Not saying thats a bad A great addition to any fan of Linkin Parks CD collection, but they should have just named it Hybrid Theory Part 2. Not saying thats a bad thing Linkin Park sounds great but when i listened to both CD's back-to-back i couldn't tell when one finished and the other began (only reason this didn't get a ten). Expand
