This review is from: Hybrid Theory [U.S. Version] (Audio CD)
Following the release of their second single ( 'Crawling' ) I was motivated to buy this album . The first single had put me off somewhat by the rapping element - I'm not a fan of that music form . Having bought the album , it became a firm favourite , and I still return to it now . The lead vocals are excellent and varied in style . The rapping element is an integral part to the bands sound , and without it I feel the bands sound would be redundant . The musicians produce a colourful tapestry of sounds , and all are without doubt technically gifted . All in all , I felt that the mix of styles was a breaath of fresh air in a genre that can sometimes sound stagnant .
Favourite songs - 'Papercut' and 'In The End' .
