    General CommentThis instrumental is very very cool!! I think that it previews the maturity and musical depth which Linkin Park definitely potray on their excellent re-mix album "Re-animation" especially when you consider the piano and cello in this song were played by Linkin Park's bass player! It's just really chilled out and although it doesnt last very long and there are no words to it it somehow gives me the picture of the end of a long war which has now resulted in the re-birth of a country or town kinda like the video for "In The End" this track really sets the scene for what is a genuine master-piece in music!

    General CommentTo me, this song is basically saying, "Hi, this is Linkin Park." Then it shows all of the band members. When it nears to the end, it says "And this is Reanimation." That's just my interpretation.
