If you were in high school in the late 90's, or perhaps even college, then I'm guessing you had a Linkin Park phase in your life. I did. I used to mute my video games and put my Hybrid Theory CD on loop and have my own personalized soundtrack.
This took me back... The fact that I could name 90% of these movies in the fraction of a second they appear is sad. What have I done with my life?
Seriously though, what have I done with my life? I don't know why. It doesn't even matter how hard I try. I keep that in mind when I think about how much time the creator of this video spent of his life so we could all get this thrill. He knew In the End was the jam and the one to choose. Bless you, sir or lady. Your sacrifice is appreciated.
I think about Linkin Park a lot. They spent who knows how many years crafting a perfect album. Every song on it was worthy of being a single. Then they signed with a major label and had to pump out another album fast... much faster than taking your time on each song instead of one or two singles with filler tracks.
They bought some time with a remix album of Hybrid Theory called Reanimation (which is amazing), but it all went downhill from there.
You can't force art this good. Oh well. We'll always have Hybrid Theory, one of the best albums we've had in a long, long time. Listen to this if you've never heard it:
We salute you, fellow reminiscer.
