Album Description
Available in: Country Icon
Hybrid Theory est le premier album du groupe américain de rock Linkin Park, sorti le 24 octobre 2000 aux États-Unis sous le label Warner Bros. Records. L'album a rencontré un très grand succès commercial puisqu'il a été vendu à plus de 24 millions d'exemplaires dans le monde, dont 10 millions aux États-Unis, ce qui lui vaut un disque de diamant. Il a atteint la deuxième place du Billboard 200 et des positions élevées dans les autres classements de vente d'albums dans le monde.
Enregistré aux studios NRG Recordings à North Hollywood en Californie et produit par Don Gilmore, l'album traite des problèmes rencontrés par le chanteur principal Chester Bennington lors de son adolescence, notamment sa dépendance à la drogue, les constantes violences et le divorce de ses parents. L'album doit son titre au nom que portait le groupe à la fin des années 1990.
Quatre chansons de l'album sont sorties en single : One Step Closer, Papercut, Crawling (qui a remporté un Grammy Award), et In the End. Ce dernier titre a contribué grandement à la popularité du groupe à l'époque de sa sortie. Lors de la cérémonie des Grammy Awards de 2002, Hybrid Theory est nommé pour le prix du « Meilleur Album Rock ». L'album est d'ailleurs référencé dans le livre Les 1001 albums qu'il faut avoir écoutés dans sa vie et est également classé onzième du Billboard's Hot 200 Albums Decade1. Une édition spéciale de Hybrid Theory est publiée le 11 mars 2002, deux ans après l'original.

User Album Review
Hybrid Theory received generally positive reviews from critics. Stephanie Dickison of PopMatters commented that the band was a "far more complex and talented group than the hard rock boy bands of late", and claimed that "they will continue to fascinate and challenge music's standard sounds."

Q magazine gave Hybrid Theory four out of five stars.

Robert Christgau of The Village Voice wrote that “the men don't know what the angry boys understand”, and gave the album a "two-star honorable mention rating", citing "Papercut" and "Points of Authority" as highlights of the album.

Jenny Eliscu of Rolling Stone gave the album two and a half stars and commented that Hybrid Theory had "as much potency as albums by Limp Bizkit or Korn" and called it an album that "reflects the frustration of life".

AllMusic writer William Ruhlmann said that "Linkin Park sounds like a Johnny-come-lately to an already overdone musical style" and called "One Step Closer" "a typical effort", referring to the lyrics of the song's chorus.

Johan Wippsson from Melodic praised Don Gilmore's production and described the albums as "destructive and angry but always with a well controlled melodic feeling all over."

NME's Noel Gardner commented that "otherwise damn fine soaring emo-crunchers like 'With You' and 'A Place for My Head' are pointlessly jazzed up with tokenistic scratching," giving the album a score of six out of ten.

Tyler Fisher at Sputnikmusic gave the album a 3.0/5, saying "Hybrid Theory stands as a defining mainstream album at the turn of the century, and for good reason.", but calling the guitar riffs "often bland and unoriginal".

Mike Ross of Jam! declares the albums as a combination of the best of hip hop and heavy metal. He goes on to state "...they can actually rap. They can actually crank out a ferocious, head-banging groove. They can write introspective lyrics with intelligence. It adds up to one of the finest new rap metal bands I've ever heard."
