Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 23 May 2007
Collision Course is a 2 disc set that seamlessly melds the music of Jay-Z with Linkin Park. An interesting combination...... but it works.

CD: The first thing you will notice is just how brief it is at only 21 minutes. However, this really is quality over quantity because the tracks blend seamlessly into one another whilst being notably varied.

1. Dirt Off Your Shoulder/Lying From You

The first 30 seconds are crap but then the guitar and beats kick in and suddenly we have a good song (and album) on our hands.

2. Big Pimpin'/Papercut

A lot more hip-hop than rock - no guitars for the Linkin Park fans out there. This is the weakest track on the CD but still good. Jay-Z really picks this track up in the second verse when his rapping kicks in.

3. Jigga What/Faint

A brilliant track that builds up into an all-out rock monster by the end. I love the way this song develops from a strong hip-hop vibe at the start to the all-out rock at the end. This is almost as good as Numb/Encore and a definite highlight of the CD.

4. Numb/Encore

The best track on the album? Well, this probably just edges it over Jigga What/Faint but it's a very close call. Some of you might recognise this from the Miami Vice film. I think this is the most emotive song on the CD and is great from start to finish.

5. IZZO/In The End

Back to the hip-hop feel of track 2 with no hint of rock on this one. A nice little track that has the most upbeat sound on the CD.

6. Points Of Authority/99 Problems/One Step Closer

The heaviest track on the CD - Jay-Z rapping (mostly 99 Problems) to Linkin Park's heavy riffs and with Chester Bennington finishing the song off with a classic Linkin Park chorus.

DVD: A 45 minute documentary that contains the entire live performance of the 6 songs. It's quite enjoyable and interesting to watch how the album came together. Well worth watching but not as long as I thought it would be.

Overall: This is a surprisingly good album. I didn't expect it to be so good and I like every track. The only real downside is that it is so short, hence only 4 stars instead of 5. Definitely worth getting but make sure you don't pay too much for it, simply because it is so short.
