We all were saddened by the sudden death of Chester Bennington in July 2017, the front man of the American Rock band Linkin Park. Two months before his death, Linkin Park released their seventh studio album “One More Light” in May 2017 through Warner Bros. and Machine Shop Records. There is a total of ten tracks with a time length of approximately thirty five minutes. A noticeable transition from heavier rock music to more mainstream pop and electronic music can be observed in this album. Internet sources say that the band members worked on the story first then recorded the vocals and finally composed the music. This is a new concept that they did not do before. Mike Shinoda, the rhythm guitarist of the band said that this is their most diverse albums where a lot of music genres are “mashed” together without the use of heavy guitars and screams which are a part of rock music. Genre wise, album has been classified as pop, pop rock and electro pop. A number of additional musicians worked on various tracks in this album, including Kilara Saulters, Pusha T, Stormzy and Ilsey Juber. Though a variety of guitar work was done, the album did not really get very good reviews from the music critics and many fans who expected the old Linkin Park sound. Classic Rock Magazine and NME rated it only 1 out of 5 stars stating it as a “weak and contrived commercial move”, London Evening Standard rated it 2 stars, AllMusic rated it 2.5 stars and the British rock music magazine Rock Sound gave a decent rating of 6 out of 10. The album received an overall average score of 46 on Metacritic with mixed reviews, having a significant number of negative reviews as well. Consequence of Sound criticised the album saying that it sounded like it tried to chase the pop-EDM trend. Many Linkin Park fans complained that they have lost their original rock/metal based sound and moved towards commercial pop music. However, the band members rejected all those criticisms saying that the album was made for monetory reasons. The sound in this album is often compared to that of Coldplay, Owl City and twenty one pilots. The album comes with an interesting artwork of a sepia photograph of few children at a Venice Beach, which was shot by Frank Maddocks that represents the feeling of the band members when their families get together. Despite of so many criticisms and negative reviews, the album was featured in several music charts across the world. It also attained the top position in weekly music charts across countries like United States, Canada, Switzerland, Belgium, Hungary and Austria.
