Aug 10, 2014Finally a good remix album from Linkin Park. It is way better than Reanimation (Remix album from Hybrid Theory). Nearly all tracks are fitting and enjoyable. I sing along a lot of tracks which is always a good sign for an album. If you liked the original this album is for you. If you want a remix album with mayor changes in style, composition, speed etc. this might not be good enough for you.… Expand
Dec 10, 2013I'm going to start off by saying this band, in it's earlier years, has been pretty good. However, just like a movie with it's 5th sequel, it has began repeating songs with different words thrown in. They appear to have run out of new material. Coming from someone who loves rock music and everything about it, this band has really died in my opinion. I gave this band a 5/10.… Expand
Nov 30, 2013I must admit I'm biased, because I loved their first remix album so much ('Reanimation', a remix of their debut 'Hybrid Theory') and was expecting something along those lines. As Linkin Park generally leans more towards rock than hiphop, 'Reanimation' was a refreshing walk to the hiphop side, heavily relying on band members Shinoda and Hahn to keep true to the Linkin Park sound.
Comparing 'Reanimation' to 'Recharged' makes it very hard for the latter to stand out. 'Recharged' is a compilation of remixes of tracks from their last album 'Living Things'. The remixes are done by current electronic producers like Datsik, KillSonik and Tom Swoon, leaving as little as two tracks up to Shinoda himself. Hahn is nowhere to be found. Three tracks from 'Living Things' are even remixed twice, and apart from the lead single 'A Light That Never Comes', the album does not contain new (or previously unreleased) material. The result is an incohesive blend of different tastes and sounds, too pop for true dubstep/D&B fans and too bland for true LP fans looking for a revisit of existing material.
Up to now all Linkin Park records were sure to get you hooked to their new sound after a couple of spins.
Though the lead single and a few interesting features like Pusha T will have you revisiting 'Recharged' a couple of times, you'll find it ends up being your first LP record ever to start collecting dust.… Expand
