LINKIN PARK GOES COMMERCIAL WITH ONE MORE LIGHT – BUT DOES IT WORK?

Linkin Park are a rock band from California who burst onto the scene with Hybrid Theory in 2000. I’m ashamed willing to admit that their debut is probably on my ‘all time favourite album’ list due to how young me thought it was the coolest god-damn thing in the world. I would play my CD constantly on a walkman and force my Dad to listen to it on car-trips. I wanted to be vocalist Chester Bennington when I grew up. The unique blend of alternative rock, metal and electronic elements makes it a guilty pleasure listen for me even now, where more pretentious me can say I enjoy it for the good production and clever songwriting.

Flash-forward to 2017 and the band is copping flak from fans and press alike with their new album One More Light. Many have accused them of selling out with a drastically different pop sound totally unlike anything they have done before. I stopped listening to Linkin Park around the time Minutes to Midnight came out, so I thought this new, critically divisive album would be the perfect time to dip my toes back in.
