Reanimation (2002) Collision Course (2004)

Reanimation is the first remix album by American rock band Linkin Park. It was released on July 30, 2002 via Warner Bros. Records. The record consists mainly of remixed versions of songs found on the band's debut album Hybrid Theory. The album generated two promotional singles: "Pts.Of.Athrty" and "H! Vltg3". The record features several guests, as well as new parts to songs and a further emphasis on the electronic side of the band.

Background

Reanimation is the first of Linkin Park's remix albums. Featured on the record are remixed versions of songs found on Hybrid Theory - including B-sides - and a few interlude tracks. Some tracks include new parts and different lyrics. It began small, with Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn intending to create remixes of a few tracks from the record, not the whole album.[1] The record features many collaborations, every song featuring a different artist. The tracks the band remixed themselves are "Wth>You", "Kyur4 Th Ich", both remixed by Joe; "P5hng Me A*wy", "Krwlng", both remixed by Mike; and "By_Myslf", remixed by Josh Abraham and Mike. There wasn't necessarily a specific set of studio time the band gave to this record; instead, the band began working on sending out remixes to different artists during their 2001 tours for Hybrid Theory, recording new parts at the back of their tour bus. As stated by Brad Delson, the band didn't seek out big names to attract attention - they sought out a variety of artists, including those who people may have not have heard of yet.[2] Mike Shinoda took the reigns on the production of this record instead of going with a traditional producer, and came up with different characters to "remix" the titles of all the tracks on the album.[3]

Initially shooting for a May 2002 release date,[4] the album took longer than expected to complete. The band had to put the recording of Meteora on hold in order to finish the album. Mike explained, "we are having a very difficult time selecting which remixes are going to be on the album. for each track, numerous artists have submitted material, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to choose. so far, we're pretty sure that the following artists are going to appear on the final album: aaron lewis, jay gordon, pharoah monche, the alchemist, chali 2na of jurassic 5, mickey petralia, dj z-trip, and there is a possibility that a number of others will be contributing vocals and other instruments on various tracks."[5]

The band preferred to call the remixes "reinterpretation" rather than the former term, as it was more than just the songs' backbeats that received a makeover.[6] In a blog post celebrating the ten year anniversary of Fort Minor's The Rising Tied, Mike briefly touched upon Reanimation, stating that it was "an attempt at showcasing the variety of (underground) influences that moved us, past and “present"."[7]

Regarding the decision to make an album that didn't focus primarily on the crunching guitars and heavy aspect of the band, Chester Bennington said the following to Rolling Stone: "There are a lot of different elements to our music. And there are certain elements that are easier and more recognizable than others. We have never been a strictly rock band, as we have a very heavy electronic and hip-hop influence and try to combine the two together. When we did Reanimation it was a chance for us to show what our music would sound like if we took all the guitars out. It showed that Linkin park is a very hip-hop driven electronic idea."[8]

First tastes of the tracks on Reanimation came in the background of the Frat Party At The Pankake Festival DVD, where "X-Ecutioner Style", "My>Dsmbr", and "H! Vltg3" could all be heard. Additionally, a demo of "1stp Klosr" was hidden as an easter egg on the DVD.[6]

In early 2002 while A&R executive Jeff Blue was doing budget work for Reanimation was when Rob McDermott told him the band didn't want to work with him anymore. Phil Quartararo left Warner in May 2002 and Jeff Blue went on to work for Interscope after getting an offer from the label.[9] Tom Whalley, former president of Seagram’s Interscope/IGA record division, had accepted back in 2000 an estimated $30-million deal to run Time Warner’s Warner Bros. Records division as Chairman/CEO when his contract expired,[10] so he took over and became Linkin Park's main contact at Warner. Blue wasn't thanked in the album notes of this record.[11]

Writing and Recording

Reanimation was recorded primarily during the band's tour for Hybrid Theory. The band recorded new parts of the songs on the back of their tour bus from Ozzfest to the end of the year, while sending out stems to different artists and producers so that they could collaborate with them. Mike said, "on every track, rather than having the remixer submit a final piece of work, we've collaborated in the writing process. some songs have been simply trading files, some have involved sitting down and re-writing entire sections of the song. in any case, though, the songs have changed a lot. it's very exciting."[12]

Requests for a remix were sent out on a whim, and some remixes either didn't end up making the cut or were finished too late. The latter happened to be the case with Marilyn Manson's remix of "By Myself", titled "Buy Myself", which was finished later than the band desired and ended up being a B-side for the record. Mike said in a LPU Chat in January 2002 that "he [hadn't] had time to yet. We don't know him very well, so we don't really feel that we're in a position to bug him."[13] Manson later responded with "I have not yet remixed Linkin Park but I have been asked to do so. It is possible I might make one of their songs something that people who dislike them could appreciate. I enjoy challenges and the opportunity to create. Money doesn't make a difference as long as I enjoy doing something."[14] The status of the remix was finally revealed by Brad in June, just weeks before the release of the record: "We worked with Manson on a version of By Myself that will appear as a B-side on some upcoming release."[15]

The band sought out several other artists to work with, including Björk. Mike expressed a deep interest in working with her, though nothing ever substantiated from getting into contact with her.[16] Brad claimed that when they approached her to work, she wanted to work on a full song collaboration with them rather than just a remix.[17] In a 2003 interview, Chester revealed other artists the band looked to work with, citing Björk, Aphex Twin, and PJ Harvey.[18]

This was a very Mike-centered project. "i've been put in charge of helping the writing process along and coordinating with the remixers and performers," he said.[5] Other band members recorded various other parts (Joe providing the biggest contributions in the form of full remixes), but it was Mike who really took hold of the project. Rob claimed that his only input on the record was providing his opinions on the remixes.[19]

Mike commented on the stressful times he had coordinating over thirty artists' schedules in order to work on the remixes, claiming he would never do it again[20] - this all changed in 2013 when the band released their second dedicated remix album Recharged.[21]

Mixing for the record began on May 19, 2002. On the same day Mike gave an update saying "so far, we've mixed about four songs. mark "spike" stent is mixing. he works with bjork and massive attack, among many others. its cool swapping stories with him, and talking about all the different ways people work in the studio. but more importantly, the songs are coming along well. i can't wait for you to hear them."[12]

Composition

Reanimation consists of remixes of tracks from the band's debut record Hybrid Theory and its b-sides. There is a stronger emphasis on the band's electronic side than the rock side - as Chester claimed, the band wanted to show that they weren't just about rock and hip-hop. The album blends different elements of electronica, hip-hop, underground, and rock, differing dynamically from Hybrid Theory. Mike explained, "Overall, its a very challenging album, one that is very complex in structure. You will hear that we had a lot of fun with our collaborators, rewriting our old stuff and writing a lot of new parts. In style, you find that it's a very sample driven album, and also something just for the fans to get to know more about us and the people our band has been influenced by."[22]

On the band's website, Mike talked about how the concept of the album evolved over time: "it began as a simple remix idea, and has become something very different--not only from the original, but different from what most people think of when they hear the word "remix". this album is much more than putting a beat over the old vocals; these songs have new parts, new words, new melodies, and new themes. and for all of you that complained about the short length of the first album, we have a treat for you: this album is probably going to end up being about 60 minutes long, with about 15 tracks."[12]

Some newer parts of the remixes were inspired by earlier versions of the material. For example, Mike reworked the lyrics of "Rhinestone" (a demo of "Forgotten") and used them in his verse for "Frgt/10",[23] and "By_Myslf" features scratches similar to those in the Studio Finals version of "By Myself".

Remixes that remained unreleased on the record included DJ Crook's remix of "My December", DJ Z-Trip's remix of "Points Of Authority", a remix of "Points Of Authority" featuring Ryu by The Crystal Method, and unknown remixes by Tricky and Prince Paul.

Music Videos

Music videos were created for every song on the album for MTV:Playback by directors who were handpicked by the band themselves. The special was aired on July 27, 2002 at 2:00pm with a rerun on July 28th at 8:00pm.[24]

Nathan "Karma" Cox ("Pts.Of.Athrty") had previously co-directed music videos for "Papercut" and "In The End" with Joe Hahn. Ryan Thompson ("Wth>You") had also worked on "In The End" as a visual effects producer. Additionally, Scott Patton ("P5hng Me A*wy") was someone Joe used to work with when he worked on movies. Kimo Proudfoot ("Rnw@y") would later work as director on Linkin Park's first live DVD, Live In Texas. While the full band isn't featured in any of those videos, Joe made appearances on "Ppr:kut" and "Kyur4 Th Ich", and Mike Shinoda is featured on "Enth E Nd" alongside Kutmasta Kurt and Motion Man.

The videos of "Frgt/10" and "Kyur4 Th Ich" were later included in the Reanimation DVD alongside a second video of "Pts.Of.Athrty" directed by Joe Hahn and its making of. The video for "Pts.Of.Athrty" was also released on the Reanimation CD as enhanced content.

After summer 2002, the videos became pretty rare and hard to find. In 2009, LP Association posted a download of the videos for the first time, taken from a VHS rip.[25]

Releases

Physical

Due to a problem with the distributor of the CD, a company called WEA, Reanimation didn't arrive to select Best Buy stores until July 31, 2002. Rob McDermott, Linkin Park's manager, issued an apology through the band's official website.[26]

Reanimation was also released in DualDisc format. On one disc, one side is a CD and the other is a DVD. The DualDisc format was only announced officially in the late 2004, two years after this edition of the album was released. It has become quite rare since then. Adam Ruehmer, said, "Funny. When I was at Machine Shop we had boxes and boxes and boxes of these things around the office. We couldn't get rid of them fast enough. I used to give them out at shows or throw them in made good LPU packs, etc."[27]

In 2019 Warner Music Group's license to the "Warner Bros." name and shield logo with WarnerMedia expired.[28][29] Warner Bros. Records was then rebranded as "Warner Records" and the entire Linkin Park catalog was reissued with the new Warner Records logo, new catalog number, Warner website address changed from "warnerbrosrecords.com" to "warnerrecords.com" and the Label Code "LC 00392" removed from the credits. The new issue of Reanimation comes with the digipak booklet (which presents a different cover) in a jewel case packaging in an apparent mistake by the label.[30][31]

Digital

Reanimation was first issued in digital format on August 29, 2006.[32] iTunes released a "bonus version" featuring live versions of "One Step Closer" and "My December" as well as a remix titled "Buy Myself". For the first few years this version was available, it was also accompanied by an interactive booklet in MOV format.

Promotion

"Pts.Of.Athrty" and "H! Vltg3" served as promotional singles for Reanimation and were the tracks radio programmers were encouraged to play.[6] An official music video was directed by Joe Hahn for "Pts.Of.Athrty". Promotional CDs for both songs were sent out to members of Linkin Park's Street Team.

Linkin Park's 2001 DVD Frat Party At The Pankake Festival featured an early demo of "1stp Klosr" along with a preview of the Reanimation website as an easter egg. The procedure to accessing this easter egg was intentionally revealed only a month prior to the album's release. It is accessed from a chapter conveniently titled "The Future".[35]

The proposed track listing for the album was unveiled in two parts on the band's website on June 14, 2002.[36] Building up to Reanimation's release, a series of chats were hosted in July on linkinpark.com with collaborators featured on the album as well as band members.[37] Linkin Park also launched a special site for the album at reanimation.linkinpark.com with a Reanimation Player featuring exclusive content. "P5hng Me A*wy", "Wth>You", "Frgt/10", "By_Myslf", "Pts.Of.Athrty", and "H! Vltg3" were all featured in the site before the album's release.[38]

Linkin Park named July 30, 2002 "Wear your LP Shirt Day" to get fans excited about the album coming out. They were prompted to put on Linkin Park clothes in stores all over the world when picking up Reanimation.[39]

Trivia

  • There's a typo in the DVD credits, "Making Of Pts.Of.Athrty" is listed as "Making Of Animated Pts.Of.Athry" (missing a "T").
  • There are also three typos in the song screens: "Wth>You" shows as "With>You", "Ntr/Mssion" shows as "Ntr/Mission" and "1stp Klosr" shows as "1stp Kloser". The "Ntr/Mission" typo is also present in the playlist.
