"Good album"
4 stars"

I like Linkin Park's albums for different reasons, Meteora is no exception.

The songs for me are a lot different from the more memorable ones which I believe are considered their ‘signature songs’, but good all the same

"No inovation, no effort to set this album apart from HT"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Excellent production and catchiness, as well as some quite good songs (Numb, Don't stay, Faint, Session) on the pro site, the major lack of creativity and new impulses on the contra side. In the end, it will be up to personal judgement if the record is good or not. The hardcore LP fan will be happy as hell with it I persume, but anyone who has an expanding musical taste will make a big leap around this one after then first few listens. Apart from the songs listed above, nothing realy motivates to buy the album or listen to it.

Description

This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files. Enhancements include behind-the-scenes video footage, a screensaver, and weblinks.

Linkin Park: Mike Shinoda (vocals, emcee, samples); Chester Bennington (vocals); Brad Delson (guitar, background vocals); Phoenix (bass, background vocals); Rob Bourdon (drums, background vocals); Joseph Hahn (turntables, samples, background vocals).

Additional personnel: Joel Derouin, Charlie Bisharat, Alyssa Park, Sara Parkins, Michelle Richards, Mark Robertson (violin); Evan Wilson, Bob Becker (viola); Larry Corbett, Dan Smith (cello); David Zasloff (Shakuhachi flute).

Recorded at NRG Studios, North Hollywood, California.

"Session" was nominated for the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.

In one of the most highly anticipated follow-ups of recent years, Linkin Park maintains its position at the top of the nu-metal heap with METEORA. The band labored carefully over their craft; for instance, the writing process of leadoff single "Somewhere I Belong" spawned 30 finished choruses before vocalists Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington arrived at the version found on the album. The combination of Shinoda's raps and Bennington's sing/scream vocals makes for an altogether complementary approach, best evidenced in "Faint" and "Easier To Run."

The pressure felt by Linkin Park to meet a high standard with their sophomore release even finds it's way into the lyrics of "Nobody's Listening," where self-doubt and fear are almost all-consuming. Producer Don Gilmore (Apex Theory, Blind Tribe) mans the boards with a decisive lean towards acoustic drums. That is not to say by any means that Linkin Park's inventive use of samples and turntables is any less present or crucial to the group's now-signature sound.

What the critics say…

Rolling Stone (12/25/03, p.108) - Included in Rolling Stone's "50 Best Albums of 2003" - "…This L.A. six-piece managed to breathe new life into loud and angsty radio rock with METEORA…"
Entertainment Weekly (3/28/03, pp.65-66) - "…Music that's by turns pretty, bludgeoning, and rhythmic….A thunderously hooky album that seamlessly blends the group's disparate elements into radio-friendly perfection…" - Rating: B+
