Linkin Park Announces "Hybrid Theory 20" Release

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else tried to rip audio from the cd's and getting errors when looking at the spectrum? i've used Exact audio copy and then used fakin' the funk to analyse the tracks, 3 tracks have an "acutal bitrate" of 160 kbps...

Is it the Forgotten Demos disc? It might not be an error. Maybe the demos don't exist in better quality. Either that or Mike downloaded random files from the internet for the tracks we already had. In Linkin Park's website the last two files from the disc were .m4a instead of .wav like the rest.

Yeah it was the forgotten demos disc. It could be or could be a mastering error? In any case I'll just live with it for the time being

What are the 3 tracks?

Pictureboard, She Couldn't, Could Have Been
In both places of the Super Deluxe Box set [1, 2], all 3 tracks contains "demo". This was also in the local databases and all tracks on streaming platforms/digital stores supposed to have the same but it was corrected right before the release of She Couldn't. I would consider this as a error.

 

The front cover of the HT Book seems to have missing "]", can someone check the US version?

Do you have glasses? I can see the ] just fine.

It's not missing, it's at the very right edge. The colors just make it hard to see, and it butts right up against the white border.

'Errors present in the "Deluxe Box Set" Version EUR'

 

- Dvd's "Fillmore / RIR and Frat Party, wrong pressing.

 

- in show Fillmore, 1:36 intro with the audience screaming at the beginning before Linkin Park enters the stage is cut.

 

- LPU Rarities Cd, Hurry and Chair (instrumental) contains only 30 seconds.

 

- Lithography MS is Pixed (Looks like Xerox).

 

- Pass PR02 is not laminated.

 

- Does not have support to help pull vinyls inside the box.

 

- P5hng me A * wy (incomplete and some Vinyl's).

 

- Hybrid Theory Ep Vinyl, mike hand is credited to 'Technique (Mix) and Mixing', is instead credited twice to 'And One'

 

- in some books, some parts linkin park is written as "linking Park".

 

- Some tracks from Vinyl "Hybrid Theory Ep" are jumping on the needle.

Correct. Billboard 200 IMO doesn't matter as much, but some will argue it matters the most because it has streaming included. But that's where viral songs lead the charts. HT20 isn't going to have anything go viral like Fleetwood Mac had with TikTok. Album chart and being #2 is legit, because this is a box set. IMO that's what you should focus on. No way LP was going to top the Billboard 200 with this, there wasn't even a lead single.

Yeah agree on this. It’s a good result, and yeah the box set didn’t help, I mean it was expected that casual fans wouldn’t have bought a 200€ box set or the 2 cd box, so there’s nothing to be underwhelmed IMO. I mean OML sold 100k first week and it was a new record with 100% new songs, so this selling approximately 26k is good for what it is

What I'm curious about is how many album sales each box set sale accounts for since double albums are treated as two sales per unit and there are several CDs and vinyls in each box set.

Found my old cassette with album today. It was a rewriting from my brother's CD (he came to visit me from St. Petersburg in the summer of 2003). I was 10 years old at that time. During two years I've listened to this album on the cassette without knowing the names of most of the songs (because I didn't rewrite the tracklist of the album, and I had got a computer with the internet only in 2005). The album became for me a discovery of rock music, the main personification of cool music.

Happy 20th anniversary, legend! ❤️
