This is a good album. (Edited Version Review)

I thoroughly enjoyed this album. Alot of the songs are really good and some even have some social awareness (The REAL World, depicted in "Right Now"; What it' like to be Japanese in America, circa 1942, in "Kenji"). Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park is the main rapper on the record. If your kid likes Linkin Park, I would definately recommend this album, but get the Edited Version, as the uncensored version has alot of language in it, as you can probably tell by the high number of "Interruption" (cursing muted out of the song).

i liked this cd....

the rising tide is a very good cd. I was surprised at the expliciness of it though. If your my age i'd reccomend the cencored version.
