Linkin Park - One More Light track-by-track review

My feelings on this album have changed drastically since the death of Chester. Figured it'd be cool to voice my opinion on each track. Overall One More Light gets a 4/5 for me

One More Light

Nobody Can Save Me - Solid song, really haunting with how upbeat it seems, but the lyrics are so dark. I hate the squeaky vocals effect that's sprinkled throughout this and few other songs on the record though. Chester sounds great and the way the song slowly builds up and the with the final chorus, Chester is roaring those haunting lyrics. 4/5

Good Goodbye - I love the first half, Mike's verse here is absolute perfection. But, Stormzy and Pusha T just ruin the rest of the song. Their lyrics here are just awful and the background beat is so generic and bland. What is with that same beat in every rap song nowadays? It's really awful. Overall half the song is good but as soon as Pusha T comes in it's ruined 2/5

Talking To Myself - I loved this song from the start. It's the most Linkin Park out of every song here. God damn is this song catchy or what?! Such a fun and upbeat track that I can always jam to if it comes on in my playlist. 5/5

Battle Symphony - Chester sounds so good here. His vocals are so perfect it gives me goosebumps. The lyrics are really uplifting as the song comes to a close. You can feel him overcoming whatever it is he's fighting in this song throughout. It has great feeling to it 4/5

Invisible - While Mike sounds great, this song is kinda bland to me. It's not really bad but it's just a little...boring. It's got great lyrics and a nice message but overall I usually skip this one unless I'm doing a full listen of the album. 2/5

Heavy - I'll even admit I was PISSED when this song dropped. It was fucking horrible to hear LP go down this path of generic pop. But as I gave this song more and more chances, it grew on me. I don't love it, but I no longer hate it. I feel the emotion and what Chester was trying to get across to us, but we just never listened because it was pop. It's really sad to think about. Anyone could tell when he sang this song, that it meant the world to him, and I feel so awful as a Linkin Park fan to have been one of those people that didn't listen. 3/5

Sorry For Now - This was initially my least favorite song on the album. Again here with that stupid squeaky vocals effect they used here and that awful ticking noise in every rap song ever now. That whole section has been described as musically brilliant but to me it brings this song down. After that garbage, it's a really nice and uplifting song. It's relatable for anyone that's been away from their loved ones for long periods of time. I love Chester's part here specifically. It's so cool hearing Mike and Chester swap roles here, Mike sings and Chester raps, WHAT?! It really works 4/5

Halfway Right - Always been one of my favorites. An especially haunting track hearing Chester roar these lyrics with this soothing instrumental backing him up. He talks about his childhood, and what his life would've been if he hadn't done what he did to become the legend he was. It's sad to hear him say he's overcome his demons and knowing what had happened. 5/5

One More Light - Yea this song is beautiful. It's incredibly well written, well produced, and especially well performed. Who didn't cry hearing this after Chris Cornell had passed and then hearing it again after Chester passed a month later? There's so much here that is just perfect. This'll easily bring a tear to your eye thinking about the impact Chester had on so many people, including myself. He's been there for my entire 17 years of existence and it's still hard to accept that he just isn't there anymore. I never got to see them live, I had tickets for The Hunting Party tour a few years ago but Chester was badly injured and they had to cancel. So I bought tickets to the One More Light tour this year and was all set to rock out to my favorite band, finally after 17 years I got to see Mike and Chester on stage. But I can't now. That's something that's been really haunting me for weeks now. It was my dream to see them and I never will now. 5/5

Sharp Edges - such a beautiful little acoustic piece to close off Chester's legacy. It fits in with Halfway Right as being a song written for Chester to cope with his past addictions and his struggles as a teen. The way Chester yells these lyrics as the song nears it's end always makes the hair on my neck stand up. Such an amazing track 5/5. I hope some of you will give this album another chance. It really is a good album, of course it stumbles a bit with Invisible, Heavy, and Good Goodbye, but overall they're mostly well written and extremely haunting tracks
