Linkin Things, like all my albums, is designed to be heard together in a specific order, which actually differs somewhat from the order I released the individual tracks in. It really is an album and I consider it to be a mashup masterpiece: a fine example of what the mashup scene/genre is all about.
I took an entire album (Linkin Park's "Living Things") and changed every part of it, made it completely my own. There is no part of it which you can listen to and conclude, "Ah, he's just copying that." It is in that sense completely original. Certainly far more original than the crap that gets on the radio these days. I have worked hard on this album and others to help elevate mashups into a higher form of art.
And somehow I forgot to repost it in the "Compilations" section so here it is.
Lost in the Echoes (Linkin Park vs Pink Floyd) ft Dert Floyd
My Remains In Hotel California (Linkin Park vs Eagles)
We Burned This City (Linkin Park vs Starship)
Lies, Greed, Koopa Shells (Linkin Park vs Super Mario Bros) ft Teddy Faley
Intruder Be Gone (Linkin Park vs The Gregory Brothers ft Antoine Dodson)
Castle of Furious Glass Angels (Linkin Park vs Rob Dougan)
Victimized by Teachers (Linkin Park vs Daft Punk)
Roads to Black (Linkin Park vs Fort Minor)
More Skin to Bone (Linkin Park vs Mars ILL vs Queen) ft Ahmad of 4th Avenue Jones
What a memorable mashup collection!
Huge kudos for this gem.
This really seems a great success as a project.
01- neat mix. I liked the floyd used.
02- Good intro. Mix is very enjoyable. A fine combo.
03 - one neat mix. I didn’t expect it to be this good, as starship is not a big fave of mine, but it’s very good.
04 - Short, but sweet. Nicely done.
05 - Very appealing work. This brings out the best qualities of both sources.
06 - A highlight of this comp. Sounds so very natural, & likable. A fave.
07 - Short, but sweet. Nicely done.
08 - The gap at 33 seconds throws me a bit ( & the others ). Is that necessary? I liked the rest. A minor point, actually, compared to to how nice the rest is.
09 - I dig this one a lot. Fine vibe to it.
10 - Took me a second to adjust, & then bob’s your uncle, I enjoyed it plenty. After the first minute, I was well into it.
11 - This announcement track I am impressed by. Good talk!
12 - Another very fine mix. Liked it a lot.
13 - Deffo my fave track of the comp. Great use of sources. I am so into Dream Theater.
The comp is a big winner with me, guaranteeing many more plays from me.The cover is fine, & as memorable as the audio.
The comic included is cool, too. Well done.
All is great here. It makes you look wonderfully talented, as you clearly are.
The album is well mastered as a whole, while I did feel the entire project could be raised in waveform by about 2 dB. Not that important, but a welcome touch for any comp.
Many thanks for bringing it on. You have my interest on all your mixes, from now on.
Your other criticism (of track 8) may be on point, but I just thought I should say: Listen to the Alan Parsons preaching it cause there couldn't be any higher authority on audio engineering for popular music than Alan Parsons.
