In the Chamber: The String Quartet Tribute to Linkin Park

While this string quartet tribute to Linkin Park is entirely instrumental, it nevertheless apes LP’s main dynamic, which of course is the interplay of vocalist Chester Bennington and MC Mike Shinoda, supported by the shifting dynamics of the instrumentation. The inherent tension of the group’s best efforts — “Runaway,” “One Step Closer,” “In the End” — is matched in these arrangements for violin, viola, cello, and bass. The crushing, Pro Tools-tweaked production of Hybrid Theory and introductory Meteora single “Somewhere I Belong” isn’t present on this tribute. But it’s a credit to Linkin Park that its best material remains standing when the outsized vocal and guitar performances, burbling programming, and studio trickery it’s most known for are all stripped away. Essential listening for any fan. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

It is a bit different from the Classical tunes on Reanimation, which LP’s bassist played. Yet… this is really good. The whole album is high energy and very powerful, from the dark haunting melodies of In the End to the climatic tunes in Somewhere I belong. Most of the album is very dark, with the light only being fealt in Somewhere I belong. The original composition “Can’t…
