  1. I was thinking about that more today at work, Part of Me got screwed over twice on this release between the missing demo and Chair being trimmed. Has anyone determined if Part of Me is the only significantly different demo we are missing from this set? No others come to mind immediately Edit: 2-Track Demo A Place for My Head
  2. Man, speaking of errors, the "Forgotten Demos" CD is filled with songs that aren't "Forgotten". Even the one track that actually is, is labeled incorrectly as "Rhinestone". Jokes aside, I don't know if the boxset idea itself was rushed, but it seems like some corners were cut in the international versions, which really sucks considering the price. The issue with the 2 LPU tracks being cut short is slowly starting to kinda annoy me now when before I was kinda meh about it. I really hope the bigger issues can be resolved in some capacity. I don't see them reprinting the book or sleeves for the minor typos or mis-credits, but stuff like the trimmed tracks, swapped DVDs, and unlaminated laminate deserve at least recognition of error. The boxset really made me realize how much I miss LPU packages. I was so excited waiting to get this and listen to all the tracks, even though I had heard them all already by the time I got it
  3. I like Dialate quite a bit, but Could Have Been is outstanding. I’m a big fan of She Couldn’t, but damn do I wish that Could Have Been was the song that we got back in the day. I love the instrumentals of Hybrid Theory songs so much. Linkin Park does great instrumentally in general, but there’s just something about Hybrid Theory (and a decent chunk of Meteora) that almost any of the songs could have works as standalone instrumentals and I would have enjoyed them just as much. Maybe it’s just my taste in music, but as much as I still enjoy later stuff post-Meteora, without the lyrics, I don’t think they are as enjoyable, which is why I don’t tend to enjoy all the LPU tracks that lack lyrics as much as the others. Coal, Pods, Chair, all those are dope as fuck
  4. Do the band segments loop? I finally just got a Sirius account (it was a pain in the ass) and hope I didn't miss anything
  5. Unless they are doing it for the purpose of scalping and making money off it, who cares if people resell or giveaway parts of the bundle? At least a third of the stuff is going to be doubles to even common collectors
  6. Late-ass reply to this, but wouldn’t that just mean there isn’t a clean version of the track in general, I don’t recall there being a physical version of the clean album
  7. This is true, but the same can most likely be said about cassettes. More people probably have DVD players than tape players. The one here is more of a novelty piece in my opinion, but it still had to be produced, and with all the DVDs in this set, another DVD probably wouldn't be much more expensive than manufacturing the tape. That being said, tapes hold more of a place in history in music in general though, the average person probably doesn't even know about 5.1 DVDs, or care since they can't really listen to it on the go. The Reanimation music videos would have been cool to include though, they are kinda crap on YouTube
  8. I think someone else brought that up earlier (we are at 12 pages now and I don't wanna search for it), but I'm kinda hoping the lengths for those are errors. I know they're instrumental, but there's really no reason to mess with them. If anything, doesn't Grr actually have a longer version that's used in an LPTV?
  9. It's not that it should have, it's just strange that it isn't, and that I thought maybe the reasoning is that it's a rare item that they wanted to keep rare, which is why I thought a Xero tape also wouldn't happen, but the issue of quality is also an issue in that case. Theoretically they could have put the better versions on a reproduction, but if what we assume is the case with Fuse is true, that would also be an issue. Either way, I'm fine with what we got, just some thoughts I had
  10. Tape is 100% a reproduction of this: https://lpcatalog.com/item/2000_hybrid-theory/promo/pro-c-100285 Meaning only One Step Closer and With You are on it
  11. As far as the LPU tracks go, this will be the first time we get 3 of those physically, since they were only released digitally for the monthly releases that year, which is nice and also a bit sad for the remaining three. There are a few nitpicks I have with this, like the missing vinyl on the expensive set, but they are vastly outweighed by what is being offered. There's also some stuff I feel would have been cool to include, but for all I know, some weren't possible. Some of this was mentioned, and this is by no means complaining, but... A cassette reissue of the main album. Eminem has some cool ones for his first few albums where the cassette color matches the album and the cover art is lenticular. They already are producing cassettes for the sampler, so it wouldn't have been too out there. LPU 16 even had a lenticular cover, too A Xero reproduction tape could have been cool too since Mark's stuff is being included, but I kinda wonder if they knew the value of some of the OG stuff and didn't want to devalue it (for example, the EP isn't on CD, only vinyl) Blu-ray instead of DVDs would have been nice, I've always wanted Frat Party at the very least in better quality, but if the source material isn't good enough for that, it's understandable. DVD is just kinda out the door at this point, and it's not just this release that I have this gripe with, plenty of releases for other stuff I'm interested in is exclusively DVD, even for modern material Unreleased Reanimation remixes or demos would have been nice since they are including Reanimation in all this. I wouldn't have expected Reanimation in this to begin with, so this is super minor Other iterations of songs we have have unofficially would have been great to finish the collection, which was already mentioned for Part of Me, but there's other like Crawling with Mike's rap (that Forgotten Demos version may cover this though). I also really wish High Voltage would be uncensored, which is also super minor, but we are getting the rock mix of One Step Closer, it's not that out there in my opinion Hybrid Theory instrumentals would have been fantastic There's always the 25th anniversary! Also, Points of Authority is 1/8 of this 80 song collection. This is the new Breaking the Habit
  12. Maybe this is just me being musically ignorant (composing wise, at least), but those strings don't sound very special in the sense that they couldn't have been replicated or that they carry a copyrighted melody, if they were the issue, why couldn't live strings have been used instead of a sample? I also recall similar sounding strings on that reassembled She Couldn't instrumental "Emo", but that stuff has been since wiped clean from the internet so I can't exactly easily compare, but the "final" doesn't have strings like that as far as I remember
  13. Unless he wrote the bass lines for the song, I doubt it, because it very likely got redone if there's a version with Chester on vocals
  14. Would that have been the only Xero track he was on? Strange that that would have been that particular track he would have uploaded. Sorry if that is mentioned in the podcast, I haven't had the chance to check it. Edit: What is the sample on it? Sorry again if this is an existing theory, but the instrumental has some noticeable similarities to She Couldn't, what if this was a case of Stick N Move/Runaway and Blue/Crawling where two separate songs exist, but the latter stemmed from the former, and She Couldn't stemmed from Pictureboard, and the sample issue was always She Couldn't?
