Sound — 8
What can be said about the southern California's rockers Linkin Park' Debut CD "Hybrid Theory". The first things that come to my mind are great new sound, fresh style, and cutting edge.

The title alone gives you an idea of what your in for when you listen to the CD. "Hybrid Theory" is basically a "Hybrid" of six different kinds of music that each member brings to the band. And it shows with songs like "papercut" that have elements of rap in it, and touchs of hip-hop-rock in basically every song you can tell that these guys are influenced from different areas.
Overall Impression — 8
So all-in-all "Hybrid Theory" is a great musical expeirence.
