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…
