    Easily the worst they have ever put out. A completely pointless remix album that does nothing but butcher and ruin classic LP songs for no reason at all.

    Awful remix album. It nearly killed everything which made Hybrid Theory great. Only 1 track (pts.of.athrty // Jay Gordon) is good, maybe slightly better than the original. It is the only Linkin Park album (If a remix album counts) that I regret buying.

  1. On the one hand, the results are more varied than the monochromatic ''Hybrid Theory.'' On the other hand, the remixes at times obliterate one of the band's most distinctive characteristics -- the vocal interplay between singer Chester Bennington and MC Mike Shinoda, a blend that allows their pop tendencies to poke through from time to time.
  2. The dominant sound is of flickering sequencers and heavy-handed synth-pomp which showcases Linkin Park's keen interest in the work of Depeche Mode, but also often leaves them sounding about as cutting-edge and dangerous as Jesus Jones.
  3. The music isn't exactly groundbreaking, and none of the remixes improve on the Hybrid Theory originals, but the boyish energy of Reanimation has its own appeal, and it's not too far emotionally from the tried-so-hard spirit of "In the End."
