    ... :unsure:
    Ok, I'm gonna make this clear. I do not like rap or hip-hop. I don't understand it, I don't get it. But, I don't think that it's appropriate to call them mentally challenged. Most rappers probably are smart, though they don't show it in their grammar.

    Secondly, I don't think that they're attempting to write poetry really. I doubt that their goal in writing this music is to write something to publish in a book, and have it sit on a library shelf next to Edgar Allen Poe. I'm guessing that they write this music to express themselves, just like the bands that you like express themselves.

    Thirdly, if I were you, I would definitely change that R-word in your post. I don't appreciate it personally, and the LPA doesn't take that stuff lightly.

    At first I totally hated the idea.....but then I heard clips of Lying From You/Dirt Off Your Shoulders and Numb/Encore and thougt....hey this could be really great. Unfortunately, other then Jigga What/ Faint.....those were the only real good songs. The other songs didnt sound like LP and Jay-Z worked with them much at all. I was excited to hear what Papercut/Big Pimpin was gonna sound like......but all it had was LP rapping over it for less then a minute and then it was pure Jay-Z. I know it only took 4 days.....but if your gonna make something when you have a rare opurtunity like this......make something thats better then ok. If the mash-ups were 'mashed-up' a little bit better and if LP and Jay-z had recorded a few new exclusive tracks together....that would have been awesome. But it felt too much like a quick buck effort. Personally....I think LP and Jay-Z should have just done the performance for MTV and never had bothered making a studio version of the songs.

    I honestly dont think Collision Course is bad. I'm usually not one for the idea of LP and Jay Z together but once i heard Numb/Encore i gave it a chance and it grew on me. There are a few i didnt go for such as Izzo/In The End now that just doesn't work together in my opinion. It goes to show you how far LP is willing to go make a new and different album. They have proven their creativity and their will to blend different types of music. In my opinion it gets a 3/5

    Totally agree with what you posted. I remember when my ssister told me about Collision Course, I was totally against it and I really hated the idea. Because generally, I hate hip-hop and rap, and it just seemed like a horrible idea. But when I listened to numb/encore, I was like "This sounds really cool" and it's my fav track on the album. Dirt of your shoulders/Lying from you is cool. But I don't like the rest. I have the album because I support LP and I would have gotten it no matter what the out come. But generally, I don't like the album.

    Well it isn't all about Linkin Park. This isn't an exclusive LP album, it's Jay-Z as well.

    A lot of LP Fans I know don't realize that, it's also about Jay-Z. Which makes it great, as it removes a lot of the crappy beats from the Black Album and lays down tight LP beats.

    To those who disagree with the lyrics that Jay-Z's songs added to LP songs, DEAL WITH IT. It's called a MASH-UP for a reason, two totally disparate songs mashed together to create a new animal. Changing lyrics to fit to one another is against what the culture is all about. If anyone has heard songs like Nine Inch Nails/Beatles - I Want To F*** (Over Me) (which is, incidentally Closer mashed with I believe the song is Over Me I guess) or LP/Britney Spears - Faint/Toxic know that it's all about the general feel of the music and realizing that these two songs have been melded together into something that (usually works).

    I don't like every single track on there, but that's probably coz i dont really listen to hip-hop anymore (i did when i was a little younger back in the Eminem/Dr Dre days). I like Numb/Encore and 99 Problems/Points/One Step, they go well together. It does help that the mash-up is with LP (their cool riffs etc) and that i had liked 99 Problems when Jay relased it as a single on his own. On paper the whole idea sounds a little crazy perhaps, but in practice (at least in my humble opinon) it does work.

    I think the songs are all right, but I'd probably tolerate it a lot less if it wasn't Linkin Park, I won't be buying the album any time soon...

    I actually like it.
    I'm not much of a hip-hop-rap fan, but my little brother is and he was the one that actually pointed out that LP was doing a CD with Jay-Z.
    He wont admit this, but LP is the only band he'll listen to outside of his usual stuff.
    Anyway, I personally think LP has the right to take their time with a new album. any band does.
    Its hard work to come up with new songs and music/beats for them. You can't really expect someone to just pull an album out of their ass for the sake of not upsetting the fans.
    I myself can live with what I have now (HT, M, CC, LIT, ReA) and just wait patiently for the next album.
    *shrugs*
    It's been said already, but everyone has their own opinion and their own level of patience.

    Hahaha WRONG.

    Check out The Grey Album by DangerMouse. it's Jay-Z's Black Album and The Beatles' White Album, which actually brought the whole Mash-Up craze to light.

    They could have done a much better job on the instrumentals in CC.
