Linkin Park

I love Linkin Park. I like many songs by this band but my favorite recording is Numb. I like the collaboration with Jay-Z version, too. I think it's just the most awesome song and everything about it is top notch--the production, the song itself, the performance. The lyrics move me, the keyboard parts are hooks unto themselves and played by beautiful sounds. The guitar sound on the recording is powerful and drives the lyrics home. Excellent singer. To me, it's all that a song should be in under three-and-a-half minutes.
