    Not ground-breaking, but original...

    FORT Minor is the eagerly anticipated side-project of Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda and this hip-hop hybrid has certainly been worth the wait. With Jay-Z serving as executive producer, The Rising Tied wastes no time in establishing itself as a class act brimming with talent. Aside from Shinoda, who proves himself to be quite an astute rapper, the album also showcases a host of the most exciting talents in hip-hop in the form of Black Thought, Common, John Legend, Holly Brook, Kenna and Styles Of Beyond. As a hip-hop album, The Rising Tied thankfully manages to avoid some of the more obvious stereotypes of the genre, even going so far as to poke fun at them on tracks. Instead, it seeks to revel in its own freedom, mixing moments of social commentary and personal reflection with a wider scope. The mixture of vocal styles, coupled with a sublime piano chord and tip-top beat, is absolutely brilliant and a million miles from the nu-metal terrain occupied by Linkin Park (and occasionally hinted at here). Strong, too, are the likes of Back Home, featuring Common and Styles of Beyond, that lays down some hard-hitting social lyrics over a slinky beat and a funky guitar loop. The upbeat funk of High Road features another lively piano chord, some shuffling beats and another highly stylish support act from John Legend. While The Battle, featuring Celph Titled, offers another scintillating blend of pianos, beats and harder-hitting lyrics. Hats off to Shinoda, then, for bringing something a little different to the hip-hop mix. He could have charted an overly familiar course but has instead sought to stretch himself and the results are highly impressive.

    Mike Shinoda Does It Again!

    Mike Shinoda was always musical magic, and he still is. He is a fantastic rapper, singer (listen to In Between on Minutes to Midnight), keyboard player, and producer. He is also a respectable musician who didn't abandon his roots and bandmates in an effort to go solo, because he returend to Linkin Park as he stated he would. I admire his ability to explore other musical realms such as doing a non-Linkin Park album, and his loyalty to the amazing band of Linkin Park. This album is very different from Linkin Park. However, it is catchy, upbeat, and honest in addition to having the Linkin Park vibe of bringing a new genre of music.

    It is a good CD. I'm a rap fan who happens to like Linkin Park. So it's the best of both worlds for me.
