Fantastic! Super chaged!
I am surprised it has an overall 3.5 rating, because this is fantastic! I am very versatile in my music choices depending on my mood and needs. and I am a fan of Linkin Park, and Steve Aoki. The combo of the two in the one song brought me to check out this album on i-tunes. I am a professional athlete and trainer and I use this for workouts and it sure charges me up and makes me work harder! Very unique sound too. LOVE!
It's No Reanimation
RECHARGED focuses heavily on the heavy electronic influences in today's pop and sources all kinds of heard/unheard talent to put their spin on Linkin Park tracks. Like Reanimation, RECHARGED freshens things up for its preceeding album (Living Things). Reanimation benefitted from its mostly hip-hop spin on Hybrid Theory, which suited the band very well. RECHARGED doesn't translate so well despite the band taking on more electronic elements within its mustic. "Until It Breaks (Money Mark Headphone Remix)" is one of the more interesting remixes to be found here. Ironically, it features much of Mike Shinoda's rap with a fun hip-hop beat and classic rock-sounding guitars, before dissolving to a rich synth-driven chorus. "Burn it Down (Tom Swoon Remix)" definitely takes the original up a notch energy-wise and makes a case for Linkin Park tracks to be played at every major EDM festival worldwide. "Powerless (Enferno Remix)" makes a similar case. For anyone with an ear for modern drum & bass will enjoy the stylistically-diverse "Lies Greed Misery (Dirtyphonics Remix)" - one of the tracks on RECHARGED that will have an aggressive love it or leave it experience for listeners. Personally, "I'll Be Gone (Vice Remix feat. Pusha T)" is the clear winner outside the lead single "A Light That Never Comes". Vice and Pusha T bring a great rap influence to the track, which will tease listeners with a classic EDM buildup that would suggest massive bass drop, only to drop the bass on some great rap point that ends up being anti-climatic for the preceeding build-up - it's fantastic. Shinoda even gets back into the studio for a little rap of his own mid-way through the song. It all ends up showcasing what Linkin Park can do and questionably should do with future work. The electronic influences play boon and bust throughout. Some tracks on RECHARGED are a roadmap to a great future that could adopt new fans, others are evidence that Linkin Park and their enlisted help aren't quite sure where to take the music. RECHARGED is a grab bad of winners and losers. You'll probably find a small handful of great cuts and leave the rest off your music playing device, never to be heard again. Only fans that stick to the rock will not be happy with anything here.
This album is good nice beats ... for this album being EDM version from Linkin Park I was impressed
Re-animation was good, but this is an atrocity.
Linkin Park is back!
Three songs from the album get me pumped as well as relax me. Keep 'em coming, guys!
I am a huge Linkin Park fan and I love their music but Lincoln Park is not changing at all, they test what kind of music sounds good and if it does sound good then they make an album around the type of music they choose.
ENJOY it! It is LINKIN PARK
For those that don't like this album, you are close minded and not open to new experiences. You stuck in the same type of music. Wake up, smell the roses and enjoy a new experience.
Whatever they decide to do, I will love it because they are LINKIN PARK!
This is dumb
LINKIN PARK IS THE BEST 😍😂😎🎧
By A Light That Never Comes
Linkin Park is the best🎧
What can't they do😍😂😎🎧
Not worth it anymore
The original sounds was where linking park really shines. While I'm all for music creativity. Should it really come at the cost of splitting your fans into two separate camps?
I've found at least 1 song on every LP album that I like... But the good old days where every song hit a nerve, or moved me in some way has been totally lost.
I'm not willing to support a band with my money, buying a full album for only 1 or 2 songs that I like. I may buy just those songs as well... But where's the incentive for the musicians to do better and maybe give us a throwback album for once. And by throwback I don't mean a greatest hits album either. Lets just say that if LP continues down this road much longer... I'm going to have to stop holding my breath, and move on to other artists.
