    Got a hold of Collision Course today, from an anonymous source. I must say, LP and Jay did a great job on this. Hope you guys all enjoy it as much as I am.

    Yup. It's leaked. It's great. Should this topic exist though? Who knows! Find out next on the staff's decision!

    The staff will probably shut it down, but I don't care. The people here need to know so they can go get it. Too bad I can't say WHERE they can get it. You all have my e-mail address.

    I was actually expecting more work on the beats and stuff, but it turns out that most of them just used the original beats, and some didn't even use any of LP's! The three I like the most are DOYS/LFY, JW/F, and N/E. I also noticed that LP used some of their original lyrics, not re-recording them (aka 99 Problems/Points/One Step). All in all it's an alright CD, I think I was just too hyped for it.

    P.S.:This topic is allowed to exist as long as we don't link to a copy of it. ;)

    You gotta' remember that this was a mash-up album, not a remix. I think we should be happy to even have new beats because technically, all that usually happens in mash-ups is they take an instrumental, the vocals and throw it in a blender. LP stepped up and pushed the lines and gave us more.

    C'mon, you weren't expecting Reanimation-style, where you? :lol:

    I think it was brilliant. I have heard some mash-ups in the past and they have been pretty lame, no extra beats, but eh, I guess this will strike us all differently.

    What can you expect from a mash-up? If it were anything more, it wouldn't be a mash, would it?

    I kinda like how they didn't always use LP's music... I mean, it's not just LP fans that will check this out, ya know.

    I've come to find out that best songs are the ones where Jay-Z is rapping to Linkin Park's music, not Mike/Chester rapping/singing to Jay-Z's music.

    Prime example: Jigga What?/Faint.

    Well I heard 4 of the songs on a live CD:

    Lying From You/Dirt Of Your Shoulder
    Jigga What/Faint
    Numb/Encore
    Points Of Authority/99 Problems/One Step Closer

    I have to say they're all excellent but I especialy like the Points of authority/99 problems,Mikes rapping is awesome,I'm not sure if mike was rapping just for the live version or not but it was sick! I like the bit in Jigga what/Faint when mike stops rapping to the jigga what tune and then the drums at the beggining of Faint introduce the faint tune

    None of these songs on this CD were mixed well at all. I thought LP would get much more creative than this, but I was wrong. I guess the songs are halfway decent but I was very disappointed. I am not going to buy this album...anytime soon at least.

    Absolutely. People, please don't give the mashup excuse because LP broke the rules of mashups with LFY/DOYS amd Numb/Encore as those were definetely REMIXES and not Mashups. They could've done the same thing to the other songs, but I guess that'd be too much to expect from a band that has now let me down THREE TIMES (Parts of Meteora, LPU3 CD and now CC). Quoting from my post at the LPMB:

    If LP lays an egg like this one more time with the new album, I think I'm going to be finished with them. This is astonishing the level of garbage they're releasing to their fans now. That's pretty sad too because I run a well respected LP fansite and I'm saying this about my FAVORITE band.

    Damn, some of you are making a huge fucking deal of this. MTV just decided to mash-up artists as a quickie way to deliver some fun to fans. A lot of people are going, "omg it's horrible linkin park let me down blah blah blah," seriously, grow up. Linkin Park will not always produce Hybrid Theory material or things we all like. Just deal with it. There's no sense going, "they let me down, one more screw up and I'm done with them." Hoo boy.

    Anywho, Collision Course is pretty neat. I wish they did longer or more collabs but it came out pretty nice. Not bad at all.

    Sure, but I guess out of those 99 problems making YET ANOTHER REHASH ALBUM aint one.

    Think about it Live In Texas, Reanimation and CC. What is going on here? Yup you heard it, yet another way to milk their OLD MUSIC without actually delivering new shit to the fans.

    Look at LPU4, its mostly live tracks! How sad is that? No offense man but are you that brainwashed that you can't see LP are messing up left and right? I mean shit, this is starting to get pathetic now!
