AllMusic

Destaque para "In The End", "One Step ... read more

Not only is “Hybrid Theory” a great debut (and the start of many cliches to come), it’s also one of the biggest high points in Linkin Park’s career. While it has lost its edge, it’s still a headbanger of an album!

Fav Tracks: Points Of Authority, In The End, Crawling, One Step Closer, Papercut, Runaway, Pushing Me Away

Least Fav Track: Cure For The Itch
