Album Info

  • Release Date: October 25, 2013
  • Label: Warner Bros Records
5 / 10 If further proof was needed that America’s mutant dubstep and electro offspring EDM is nu-metal’s successor, I give you this, the second album to feature remixes of songs written by one the genre’s biggest bands. It features producers with names like Datsik (on ‘Until It Breaks’), KillSonik (on ‘Lost In The Echo’) and Enferno (on ‘Powerless’), who clobber songs mostly taken from Linkin Park’s fifth album ‘Living Things’ with nosebleed drum’n’bass, 8-bit blips and oversized dancehall bass until they sound like a wailing ogre having a seizure. Rick Rubin’s final Primal Scream-gone-hip-hop remix of ‘A Light That Never Comes’ saves ‘Recharged’ from disaster, but you might need resuscitating after this lot.
