LINKIN PARK are light years away from the band who shook rap-rock to its core with Hybrid Theory. One More Light shows their maturity, tackling complex issues of uncertainty, regret, and life’s changes. Their sound skews towards pop this go-around, many songs built from a melodic base with electronic flourishes. “Battle Symphony” and “Invisible” use conviction as their primary motivators—both sweeping and fantastic. Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda—one of rock’s most potent vocal tandems with their balance of finesse and power—even shift their dynamic on “Sorry for Now”, with Chester rapping and Mike singing on an emotional open letter to his kids. One More Light sees LINKIN PARK evolve and elevate, erasing musical and mental boundaries and taking their fans along for the ride.
