Linkin Park One More Light Review

download

When the first single Heavy came out, I was a bit skeptical and confused about what to feel about it. As the singles rolled out and popped out on my YouTube feed, my fears were confirmed. Linkin Park changed their sound. It is clearly evident that Linkin Park are trying to reach out to a larger fan base. They are trying to go main stream. If these songs played on the radio I wouldn’t be able to tell them apart from all the other “Billboard 100 pop songs”. So should be I annoyed by that or keep an open mind to this album?. Honestly this album does some have some pretty decent tracks such as Invisible, Talking to Myself and Sharp Edges. Invisible was an enjoyable listen with just Mike’s vocals incorporated into the song. The single, Good Goodbye was a bitter disappointment with artists Pusha T and Stormzy just tarnishing the natural flow and rhythm of the song and destroying the buildup Mike and Chester provided. Chester’s vocals throughout this record were mellow and soft but he didn’t exactly “wow” me because we all know his vocal range is ridiculous and I simply didn’t hear that in this album. It’s not Linkin Park. It’s different but different is not always bad.  Let’s just cross our fingers that this is just a phase and this is not the new Linkin Park. Cross those fingers…

Rating 3/5

Schrödinger’s Cat

Schrödinger’s cat is a famous thought experiment penned by down by Erwin Schrodinger in 1935. The experiment is carried out basically by placing a cat in a closed box with some unstable gun powder which has a 50% chance of exploding and a 50% chance of just nothing happening to it at all and the cat just stares at it. So until we look into the box we are not certain whether the cat survived this little experiment or did it meet its unfortunate end in a cardboard box? When we eventually do look they are only two possibilities. The cat is either dead or alive but not both. If we were to carry out this experiment and record the results they would show that half the time the cat survived and half of thedownload time it died. The quantum mechanical interpretation is that before we look into the box the cat is in a superposition. It is both dead and alive at the same time because we don’t know what the reality is without looking into the box. And when we do look inside reality crashes down on one decision. From the cats perspective either the gunpowder explodes or it doesn’t. So the cat’s reality becomes entangled with the result of experiment. And it is our observation that causes nature to collapse on one of these options. Wait a minute though..…aren’t we technically the cat also? Either we open the box and the cat is dead or we open the box and the cat is alive (yay!). So who is observing us for reality to fall upon one outcome? Maybe the other outcome occurs in a parallel universe? Who knows…
