collision course

Friday, September 02, 2005
i wanted to post something bout this album.

so having heard the encore/numb- about 2 months ago which i loved the moment i heard it, i wanted to get my hands on the album. but then it wasnt availible in india, and i would receive a really weird expression from the guy who works at planet m ( and who supposedly has a very good knowledge bout rock), for he would think i am a dick, for generally rappers such as jay z dont sing along with bands linkin park. i placed an order 4 times at planet m and twice at music world. i was reminded of the times when i would go to the stores and place an order for highway to hell by AC/DC, the spellbinding album with the spectacular title song, which by the way is the most requested song on the radio in the radio. i never did get highway to hell in hyderabad. i had to ask my dad to get it from london when he went there fer a conf.
so aneways, days passed, and suddenly, as though the message was godsent, i saw an advertisement of the album(i didnt know the name ofcourse). It was called Jay Z and LP collision course.
15 hours later i was at the music store. very excited i grabbed a copy of the album. though i must admit i was sort of disappointed. ONLY 6 FUCKIN SONGS! Not done, not fair. And yes charged a full 400 bucks for the CD, i bought the cassete instead.

So as far as the album goes, i'd give it a 8 outta ten. but dont go by that marking scheme, coz i have my own standards. britney gets a 2(but then thats what she deserves). so the album is pretty rocking . the numb/encore is by far the best. i mean the beat is jus awesome and Jay Z is great. then there is the points of authority one which is pretty good too. the first song of the cassette lying from you/dirt off your shoulder is paralled with numb/encore. its got one of the best startings i've eva heard( reminded me of the daredevil OST by Fuel, another awesome band)
but then yea, the album is pretty good, and then there's the little thing bout linkin park: YOU CAN NEVA GET BORED WITH THEM! though i must agree, there are some stains on the moon. one of the song H to the Izzo/In the end was below par. You see, the goes like this, each song is actually a fusion of two songs, one from each artist. Although the lyrics are fused, the music is only from one o the songs. so the ones with the LP music are just heavenyl, but i'd like to raise my eyebrows fro the ones of Jay Z, for they arent that good as those of LP, but then rap fanatics would prolly disagee. For e.g in the case of the above mentioned song, you'd expect something really rocking since the song is IN the End, but then the music of the complementary Jay z song is just the opposite, its like a 70's dicso theme, quite pissin off really. but other wise, the album is pretty darn ok. atleast it works for me
